Tai Chi and Cardiac Rehabilitation



Cardiac Rehab and Prevention

Many cardiologists are prescribing Tai Chi as an adjunct therapy for treatment of heart problems or as preventative therapy. Tai Chi provides a gentle exercise that promotes circulation, but its meditative quality may offer even more benefits. Tai Chi's stress-reduction qualities foster a feeling of self-acceptance and safety in the world, allowing practitioners to let go of the control issues that can make life seem like an endless state of panic.

Again, Tai Chi gives us a daily dosage of homeostatic feelings of well-being. As we become familiar with this feeling of optimum health, we get more attuned with what foods, drinks, or activities promote or detract from that wonderful feeling. This biofeedback feature can be instrumental in helping people make lifestyle changes that may extend their lives by many years.
