What are practitioners with arthritis saying about Taoist Tai Chi® arts

Taoist Tai Chi® arts changed my life. I was able to get off my rheumatoid arthritis drugs completely.  I felt physically and emotionally strong enough to adopt a baby on my own.

– Margaret, Canada

As a result of Taoist Tai Chi® practice, I no longer suffer from osteoarthritis in my spine and no longer take medication.

– Michelle, USA

I have flat feet.  This was so painful that it was hard for me to walk at all. My Taoist Tai Chi® arts instructor helped me find moves from the set that I could do, first only a little, but with daily practice more and more.  Now some 10 years later my feet get tired and ache but there is no severe foot pain.

I recently had my feet examined by a foot specialist. He looked at the x-rays and asked me what I did for exercise. I showed him some of my Taoist Tai Chi® practice. He said, “I do not know why the Tai Chi works but never stop doing it because all the joints in your feet are out of alignment. Usually this causes crippling arthritis, but your feet show almost no sign of arthritis at all.
