Helping with Lower Back Problems and Carpal Tunnel

Lower back problems are a large part of costly, unscheduled absenteeism. Tai Chi is very effective at helping with chronic lower back pain, as well as other chronic pain problems.

Since T'ai Chi is the very best balance training in the world, causing participants to be half as likely to suffer falling injuries as others, Tai Chi can reduce workplace injuries dramatically. Tell your company's Safety Director to look into the Emory University Tai Chi study on balance. It will get his or her attention.

Some Tai Chi exercises are very similar to exercises designed to prevent Repetitive Stress Injury, such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Therefore, you may be hitting several birds with your well-thrown Tai Chi stone.


Even though QiGong can be done at your desk, it is also good to take breaks away from the workstation, in a quiet board room or the rest room, where you can do Tai Chi in relative silence. Then when you return to your workstation, the QiGong will be even more effective, as if you brought some of the silence with you.

Tai Chi & Qigong are the ultimate ergonomics program. Stress costs US business over $300 billion annually ($7,500 per employee, per year.)

"Tai chi ... being used to achieve full potential"
