Tai Chi Revolution is a Syracuse, NY-based Tai Chi studio where practitioners of all levels have experienced first hand the benefits of practicing Tia Chi. An recent article in Your Health Magazine reminds us that Tai Chi is more than just an exercise in moving meditation. There are proven health benefits as Kym Huie, a tai chi instructor for more than 30 years, points out:
“It improves people’s balance,” Kym said. “Besides the physical balance issues, it can help with bone density issues, because we’re weight-bearing in tai chi. Tai chi also helps with deep breathing, and studies have shown that tai chi helps with fighting off dementia and strengthening cognition or the ability to think. Tai chi is very much a memory exercise, and it can help with anxiety, stress and depression.”“…When you do tai chi long enough, in 15 to 20 minutes you can start to get a little chemical release of endorphins, the feel-good chemicals from exercise. And though we may never get rid of all of our pain if we have arthritis or a bad knee or hip, we can reduce our pain levels by deep breathing and getting this endorphin release, and it helps manage our pain.
