What the Experts Said:
"In a meta-analysis of 20 studies on tai chi and cognition, tai chi appears to improve executive function—the ability to multitask, manage time, and make decisions—in people without any cognitive decline."

"Tai Chi and Qigong have been shown to promote relaxation and decrease sympathetic output. Relaxation interventions are known to reduce clinical somatic symptoms and to benefit anxiety, depression, blood pressure, and recovery from immune-mediated diseases."
"A 2019 review of 6 studies (657 participants) found that tai chi was beneficial for reducing pain scores in people with fibromyalgia. Tai chi also helped to improve sleep quality, relieve fatigue, reduce depression, and increase quality of life."
* CNN: Medicine in Motion: How tai chi heals body and mind (Dec 13, 2019)
"While all that sounds rather mystical, science shows Tai Chi can improve health. Researchers have discovered that even a shorter, modified exercise series of Tai Chi movements can improve muscle strength, balance and flexibility, while also reducing stress and lowering blood pressure."
"Some studies show tai chi can improve brain function, lower stress and depression, and reduce chronic pain."
* Everyday Health: Reduce Belly Fat in Middle-Aged and Older Adults (Jun 2, 2021)
"After 12 weeks of classes, people in the tai chi group reduced their waist circumference by an average of 1.8 centimeters (0.7 inches) more than the control group, while conventional exercise resulted in a 1.3 centimeter (0.5 inch) larger reduction."
* BMC Geriatrics: Anti-aging (May 6, 2021)
"We recruited 289 older adults practicing Tai Chi for over 3 years, together with 277 age-matched older and 102 young adults as controls. 168 Tai Chi practitioners were successfully matched to 168 older controls aged 60–69 based on a propensity score for statistics."
"These data demonstrate a rejuvenation role of Tai Chi in improving the age-related decline of the cerebrovascular function."
"Taken together, in this cross-sectional study, we found that the age-related decline in cerebrovascular hemodynamics in the older adults is significantly improved by Tai Chi practice. Our findings provide novel insights into healthy ageing and anti-ageing strategies."
