 What is Tai Chi for Arthritis?

Dr Paul Lam and his team of medical and tai chi experts designed this program to be safe and effective for people with arthritis; it will also provide health benefits and improve almost anyone’s quality of life. Based on the Sun style of tai chi, Tai Chi for Arthritis (TCA) is easy to learn, effective and safe. It improves flexibility and muscle strength, increases heart/lung activity, aligns posture, improves balance, and integrates the mind and body. The TCA program includes warm up and cool down exercises, the twelve movement set on both sides, the teaching method, knowledge about arthritis and how to teach this program safely.

Qualified participants who successfully complete the course will be eligible to become Board Certified instructors.

Millions of people around the world have gained health benefits from the TCA program. Many scientific studies have shown this program relieves pain, improves quality of life and make people feel better.
