Tai Chi was developed over 800 years ago, and its practice combines physical activity, vital force empowerment, internal strength and respiratory training. The primary difference between Tai Chi and many other types of martial arts, is that this specific type does not require physical strength in order to be practiced; its philosophy, instead, focuses more or respiration, gentle and coordinated movement and internal force.
Tai Chi has nowadays been proven to have a confirmed positive impact on the physical condition, well-being and standard of living of patients suffering from chronic disease. A 2016 comprehensive study conducted by the British Journal of Sports Medicine reviewed 33 individual studies, and concluded that Tai Chi can be safely practiced by patients suffering from conditions such as heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cancer and osteoarthritis: not only is Tai Chi safe for these chronic sufferers, but it has actually been proven to improve their overall physical performance and reduce pain.
