The Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi : 12 Weeks to a Healthy Body, Strong Heart, and Sharp Mind
by Peter Wayne




Overview -
A longtime teacher and Harvard researcher presents the latest science on the benefits of T'ai Chi as well as a practical daily program for practitioners of all ages

Conventional medical science on the Chinese art of T'ai Chi now shows what T'ai 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 T'ai 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 T'ai Chi actually works.

Dr. Peter M. Wayne, a longtime T'ai 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 T'ai Chi into everyday activities
- An introduction to the traditional principles of T'ai Chi
- Up-to-date summaries of the research on the health benefits of T'ai Chi
- How T'ai Chi can enhance work productivity, creativity, and sports performance
- And much more
