If you have:

  • Arthritis, fibromyalgia, MS, asthma / bronchiectasis or a stroke – Dr Lam recommends the Tai Chi for Arthritis program. It is supported by Arthritis Foundations worldwide; shown by many medical studies to reduces falls, alleviate pain, improves quality of life and better lung capacity.
  • Poor balance to prevent falls, improve balance and health – Dr Lam recommends the Tai Chi for Arthritis too since it contains a fall prevention program, that is why the Centers of Disease Control and Preventions (www.cdc.gov) recommends it
  • A stroke, heart disease, injury, surgical procedure or tiredness and stress – Dr Lam recommends the Tai Chi for Rehabilitation program because it is very healing and anyone can learn it.
  • Diabetes, heart-related conditions – Dr Lam recommends the Tai Chi for Diabetes program. It is supported by Diabetes Australia.
  • Osteoporosis  – Dr Lam recommends the Tai Chi for Osteoporosis program. It is supported by Osteoporosis AustraliaTCE DVD Cover220
  • Back pain, or a weakening condition like chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia – Dr Lam recommends the Tai Chi for Rehabilitation program 
  • To de-stress or relieve depression – Dr Lam recommends the Tai Chi at Work or Tai Chi for Rehabilition
  • Young children, to improve health and coordination – Dr Lam recommends the Tai Chi 4 Kidz program

To Empower Yourself for Better Health and Wellness, Dr Lam recommends:

Start with Tai Chi for Beginners or Tai Chi for Energy and then progress onto Dr Lam’s Intermediate Series. Tai Chi for Energy is a combination of Chen and Sun styles and is more vigorous than Tai chi for Beginners and slightly more challenging to learn. 

The Intermediate Series is recommended for people with approximately 1 year’s tai chi experience and the Advanced Series is for those with two or more years’ experience.24 Forms DVD Cover220

Dr Lam’s 3 Best Picks:

Dr Lam recommends starting with Tai Chi for Beginners; or if you prefer a more challenging and faster-paced program Tai Chi for Energy. If you have arthritis or other chronic conditions, or prefer a gentle start, Tai Chi for Arthritis (suitable for almost anyone with or without arthritis).
All or any of the three would improve health and wellness, can be enjoyed byt almost anyone.
