In addition to enhancing memory, tai ji has been suggested to have many other health benefits, including:
- balance, fewer falls in the elderly
- cardiac rehabilitation (post surgery)
- high blood pressure
These effects have mostly been studies in the elderly, but in the few studies with younger adults, the effects have been even stronger. Tai ji is a very safe practice to introduce into your daily routine and makes for a great start to the day.
*Note: Tai ji is the same as the more commonly used "tai chi," but uses the more up to date pinyin romanization of Chinese, whereas tai chi is the older Wade-Giles romanization.
