Product description

Review

"The Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi is a significant milestone in the integration of Eastern and Western medicine. It deftly summarizes the scientific evidence for the healing potential of this traditional Chinese system of body movement and gives readers practical advice for using it in everyday life. I recommend it highly."--Andrew Weil, MD, Professor of Medicine, University of Arizona, and author of 8 Steps to Optimum Health

"Dr. Wayne gives us a magnificent and useful contribution for the betterment of our health and well-being through the proper integration of Tai Chi into our lives."--Herbert Benson, MD, author of The Relaxation Response and Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School

"Peter Wayne is that rare individual who is sufficiently 'bilingual' to introduce Tai Chi to a largely open-minded yet skeptical medical community and to sensitively and movingly celebrate its timeless poetry, power, and appeal. This is a book for all to learn from and enjoy."--David Eisenberg, MD, Harvard School of Public Health and the Samueli Institute, and Former Chief of the Division of Research and Education in Complementary and Integrative Medical Therapies, Harvard Medical School

"Evidence has shown that unhealthy lifestyle is the cause of most if not all chronic conditions such as diabetes, arthritis, and heart disease. Dr. Wayne's book, with his expertise in medical research and Tai Chi, is a significant step towards modernizing Tai Chi--essential to making Tai Chi a central part of practical and effective solutions to the epidemic of chronic disease."--Dr. Paul Lam, director of the Tai Chi for Health Institute and author of Teaching Tai Chi Effectively and Tai Chi for Beginners

"Peter Wayne has long been a leader in scientific research into how Tai Chi boosts health and well-being. In this brilliant book, he blends rigorous Western science with Eastern wisdom to present an illuminating and thoroughly modern view of a wonderful, life-enhancing art. I recommend it highly to anyone interested in Tai Chi, from novice to advanced practitioner."--Yang Yang, PhD, director, Center for Taiji and Qigong Studies, and author of Taijiquan: The Art of Nurturing, The Science of Power

"Highly readable and deeply informative. . . . This book has the potential of once and for all dispelling any lingering myths that Tai Chi and Qigong, and Western science's growing understanding of its uses, are anything less than a profound health revolution that can help prevent or treat the majority of health challenges, and ultimately may save society hundreds of billions if not trillions in future annual health care costs. The Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi may well be that point we look back to and say, 'That was the tipping point that unleashed the building wave of Tai Chi, which has now transformed modern health care.'"--Bill Douglas, founder of World Tai Chi & Qigong Day and author of The Complete Idiot's Guide to T'ai Chi & QiGong --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Book Description

"Conventional medical science on the Chinese art of Tai Chi now shows what Tai Chi masters have known for centuries- regular practice leads to more vigor and flexibility, better balance and mobility, and a sense of well-being." --This text refers to the paperback edition.
