Tai Chi – Social Prescription

A friend sent me this link to a BBC article posted in September 2015 that describes the evidence from over 30 research studies that show tai chi has benefits to offer people living with various long term health conditions.

It goes on to say,

“In the future, it might even be possible to consider prescribing Tai Chi for patients with several illnesses.”

All interesting stuff and another reason to keep practising, even 10 or 20 minutes a day will make a difference.

You can find out by visiting our Research page that lists some of the evidence for the health benefits tai chi appears to offer people.

You don't have to have a long term health condition to come to one of our classes. Regular practise of tai chi will help all people to keep fit and look after their well being.

I you would like to find out more please do get in touch.
