Neuromuscular Benefits of Tai Chi

We know the benefits of Tai Chi from our own experience and the feedback we get from our participants, but it’s always good to have it backed up by research. 

A recent study showed that regular practice of Tai Chi has the potential to improve reaction time and movement efficiency in older adults leading to similar muscle benefits as conventional rehabilitation programs.

The study sought to understand the neuromuscular mechanisms underlying the benefits of regular practice, and the results showed that the improvements in function associated with Tai Chi provide a mechanism for reducing falls in older adults.
