In the Nov/Dec 2009 issue of Active Aging Today, we are pleased to showcase Paul Lam, MD, a world-renowned leader in tai chi for health. Practiced regularly, tai chi can help reduce stress, improve postural balance, reduce risk for falls, increase strength, improve quality of life, enhance feelings of well-being, as well as provide other health benefits. Although practitioners and older adults may be aware of the existence of qigong and tai chi, many are not familiar with how to perform these activities nor the research that supports the many benefits they provide.
I invite anyone with knowledge and experience using tai chi, qigong, or other similar forms of exercise to share your program with the readers of Active Aging Today. This journal can provide an ideal outlet for you to share your program using text, photos, and videos with others who can adopt and/or benefit from what you are doing.
