T’ai Chi Chih (TCC) is a moving meditation positively associated with physiological and psychological conditions, such as immunity to shingles virus, reduction in inflammatory markers, decrease in sympathetic nervous system, geriatric depression and chronic diseases in cancer survivors...TCC is easy to learn and particularly accessible to the aging population. 

This review includes all published randomized controlled trials (RCT) studies focused on TCC to date. Results are summarized and methodology is described. As an accredited teacher of TCC, the author comments on the usefulness of the practice as an evidence based mindfulness practice.

Tai Chi may be Best Exercise to Prevent
​Falls for Seniors

As we age, the risk of falling increases and becomes increasingly perilous. But the risk of falling can be minimized, says Dr. Elizabeth Eckstrom, professor and chief of geriatrics at Oregon Health & Science University. "A lot of older adults and a lot of physicians think that falling is inevitable as you age, but in reality it's not." NPR's Lulu Garcia-Navarro and Luisa Torres spoke to Eckstrom about the most common causes of falling among seniors and the best ways to prevent them. Click here to read more

A Moving Meditation that can be Done by Anyone

T'ai Chi Chih's 19 gentle movements and one pose relax your body and quiet your mind. These simple movements strongly circulate and balance the Chi (Life Force) and cultivate good health, longevity, creativity and an internal center of peace from which to move with serenity in the midst of your busy daily life. Based on the same Yin-Yang principles as Tai Chi Chuan, this new form is much easier to learn yet raises the Chi very quickly and strongly. You can do this, regardless of your age or physical ability, just by adapting the movements to your comfortable range of motion. 

Other Benefits of T'ai Chi Chih:

• Relief of pain and stress
• Regulation of blood pressure
• Improved balance, circulation and stamina
• Stronger heart, lungs and bones
• Greater mental clarity and emotional balance
• Strengthened immune system

Taught by Pam Towne, Accredited Instructor and International Teacher Trainer. T'ai Chi Chih originator Justin Stone said "Pam is one of the best T'ai Chi Chih teachers in the world." Pam Towne has enthusiastic students throughout the U.S., Canada and Russia.
