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.

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:
