Acupuncture/TCM


by Martin Eisen

Tai Chi has increased in popularity in the western world. It often appears in the background of advertisements of unrelated products. It is recommended for seniors and by the American Arthritis Society, which has its own simplified version. Many health clubs and martial arts studios offer Tai Chi classes...

 

Editor's Note: My colleague Marty Eisen writes an interesting article about points to think about when one is considering learning tai qi or qi gong. These are meditative exercises that fall under the umbrella of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) due to their health benefits from Qi (vital energy) cultivation. Marty also discusses problems with scientific studies of tai qi and qi gong and why they likely do not accurately assess the benefits of these medical arts.

Acupuncture/TCM
