Tai Chi for Arthritis Pain Relief
by Leon Lioe
Tai Chi are one of the best exercise programs in alleviating health problems in older
adults. While anyone can master the art of Tai Chi, you will find mostly older adults
engaging in this beautiful and graceful exercise. Considered to be low impact, there
are no major strains put on the body or joints and is particularly effective for those
who suffer from any form of arthritis.

Recent studies have shown that Tai Chi, when utilized by older adults, offers calm
and balance, dissipates anxiety and depression, helps older adults to sleep better,
reduces bone loss in menopausal women, decreases blood pressure, helps in
alleviating pain, and prepares ones to perform their usual tasks on a daily basis.

Considered to be a great form of exercise, Tai Chi requires no equipment, no time
table, is very easy to do, has no side effects, and provides older adults the
opportunity to meet others who love the exercise as well. Once you learn Tai Chi and
the proper way to move, there is virtually no chance of injury. Whether you perform
Tai Chi in your home by following exercises on DVDs, or whether you go to your local
park and exercise Tai Chi there, once you begin this art form of exercise you will
most likely continue for the rest of your life. Further, you will begin to develop your
own moves and may likely advance to the newest form of exercise and meditation
known as Qi Gong. Based on the same principle of slow movements, Qi Gong, while
new to this country, has been around as long as Tai Chi and will most likely become
as popular in the future.

Meditation has long been studied and affirmed to be one of the best forms of
relaxation as well as a great stress reducer. Adding this with exercise and you have
an unbeatable combination. More importantly, not only will you develop a new
exercise routine, but you will begin to feel good about it, your health, and your
overall well-being.
