Description - The Harvard Medical School Guide To Tai Chi by Peter Wayne

"Conventional medical science on the Chinese art of Tai Chi now shows what Tai Chi masters have known for centuries- regular practice leads to more vigor and flexibility, better balance and mobility, and a sense of well-being."

Conventional medical science confirms what Tai Chi masters have known for centuries- regular practice leads to longer life, more vigor and flexibility, better balance and mobility, and a sense of well-being. Cutting-edge research from Harvard Medical School now also supports the long-standing claims that Tai Chi has a beneficial impact on the health of the heart, bones, nerves and muscles, immune system, and the mind. This research also provides insight into the underlying physiological mechanisms that explain how Tai Chi works.

Dr. Peter Wayne, a longtime Tai Chi teacher and a researcher at Harvard Medical School, developed the simplified program in this book, similar to protocols that have been scientifically demonstrated to work in a number of clinical trials, and which is suited to people of all ages and can be done in just a few minutes a day.

The Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi includes-

* The basic program, illustrated by 52 halftones of the author
* Practical tips for integrating Tai Chi into everyday activities
* A readable introduction to the traditional principles of Tai Chi as viewed through the lens of medical science
* How Tai Chi can improve work productivity, enhance creativity, and boost sports performance
