Ask Dr. MaoQ: Could you share with us the benefits of tai chi?

A: Tai chi is an ancient Chinese system of slowly flowing movements and shifts of balance. It strengthens the legs while conditioning the tendons and ligaments of the ankles, knees, and hips, increasing their range of motion and making them more resilient, less prone to injury. The constant weight shifts increase balance and body awareness, leading to a confidant ease of movement within the form and in everyday life. Tai chi is a physical exercise that focuses the mind, while conditioning the body. Practicing twenty minutes a day dissipates stress and reduces stress-related debilities; it also increases stamina and strengthens the body and will.
