Tai Chi for Rehabilitation
Tai Chi is a form of gentle exercise that combines deep breathing and relaxation techniques with slow, graceful movements. It can be carried out individually or in groups. Because Tai Chi is largely based on technique, it does not require great strength or flexibility. It has become an increasingly popular activity for people with MS and is associated with stress relief and health improvement.
The physical and psychological effects of Tai Chi have been examined extensively in both older people and those with chronic conditions. Researchers in Boston, Massachusetts carried out a review of 47 controlled and observational studies that looked at the impact Tai Chi had on people with chronic health problems, including MS.
Although there were limitations or biases in most of the studies, the group concluded that there was evidence of medical benefit. They found that long-term Tai Chi practice had favourable effects on the promotion of balance control, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness and reduced the risk of falls in older people. It was also found to reduce pain, stress and anxiety.
As a martial art Tai Chi involves considerable focus on spiritual aspects and on increasing self-concept and concentration. The majority of teaching in the UK only deals with the exercise side of Tai Chi.
