Taijiquan has many health benefits:
Improves balance – slow movements re-educate the skeletal muscles to work more efficiently.
Increases flexibility – the gentle opening and closing of the body and limbs softly lengthen the muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Improves the health of the internal organs.
Strengthens the back – the posture is realigned.
Extends joint life –
relaxation of the joints during movement encourages lubrication and blood circulation.
Reduces stress – calming the mind slows down adrenal secretion, thereby reducing the circulation of stress hormones.
