    About this book

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. Cutting-edge research from Harvard Medical School also supports the long-standing claims that Tai Chi also has a beneficial impact on the health of the heart, bones, nerves and muscles, immune system, and the mind. This research provides fascinating insight into the underlying physiological mechanisms that explain how Tai Chi actually works.

Dr. Peter M. Wayne, a longtime Tai Chi teacher and a researcher at Harvard Medical School, developed and tested protocols similar to the simplified program he includes in this book, which is suited to people of all ages, and can be done in just a few minutes a day. This book includes:
The basic program, illustrated by more than 50 photographs
Practical tips for integrating Tai Chi into everyday activities
An introduction to the traditional principles of Tai Chi
Up-to-date summaries of the research literature on the health benefits of Tai Chi
How Tai Chi can enhance work productivity, creativity, and sports performance
And much more
