  • Book Review: The Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi

    Jan 07, 2014
    Book Cover Harvard Tai ChiI want to share with readers a great new resource on the health benefits of Tai Chi. It is a very well done book by a Harvard assistant professor who also is an acupuncturist and long-time Tai Chi practitioner. Dr. Wayne and I met a number of years ago and he was kind enough to gift me with his recent book, The Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi: 12 weeks to a Healthy Body, Strong Heart, and Sharp Mind (Shambhala Press, 2013). This was fortuitous as I am working on a book chapter on Tai Chi and Osteoarthritis for a new book in the Weil Integrative Medicine Library on Integrative Medicine for Pain. 

    If you are not familiar with it, Tai Chi is a slow-moving, meditative movement and martial art. Tai Chi as translated from the Chinese means “the grand ultimate fist” and is both an ancient art and science of health, mind, body, spirit. Historically derived from practices in the Shao-Lin temple in China as an exercise done by the monks as a form of meditative exercise and fitness program, it also helped them to protect the peasants from surrounding warlords.
