Tai Chi has been practiced for centuries, dating back to Taoist monasteries. Also known as T’ai chi ch’uan or Taiijiquan, Tai Chi was developed as an ancient Chinese martial art. Tai Chi is a widely practiced form of exercise with numerous health benefits. Tai Chi is roughly the equivalent to a brisk walk.

While there is not enough research to conclude clear benefits, studies have demonstrated Tai Chi to have potential positive effects for falls, hypertension, cognitive performance, osteoarthritis, depression, pain, balance confidence and COPD.
