World Tai Chi & Qigong Day, "recommended reading."
The Irritable Bowel Syndrome Sourcebook, by Laura O'Hare

Excerpt from above book:



Tai Chi Chuan

Like other ancient Chinese practices, tai chi chuan (or tai chi) is intended to harmonize the body's yin and yang and release its vital energy flow. . . .

. . . tai chi has been proven to reduce blood pressure and heart rate. It improves strength and muscle tone, enhances range of motion and flexibility, improves balance and coordination, and, because it is a weight-bearing exercise, improves bone density and diminishes risk of osteoporosis. . . . promotes wellness without risk of injury. Even the disabled can employ and reap the advantages of tai chi . . .

. . . Because tai chi promotes the ability to concentrate and focus on breathing and movement to the exclusion of all else, it [Tai Chi] can greatly help IBS sufferers to manage stress and stress-induced symptoms, while it contributes to their general well-being . . .

World T'ai Chi & Qigong Day urges you to contact "YOUR" local Irritable Bowel Syndrome Support Group to schedule a presentation on T'ai Chi & Qigong's many health benefits.
