As reported in the New York Times and US News & World Report, a small but significant new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine shows positive results in pain relief from regular practice of tai chi for people suffering from fibromyalgia. One of our members in Australia has personally experienced the positive benefits of practicing the Taoist Tai Chi® arts on her own pain from this debilitating chronic disease.
“I have been diagnosed with chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. About five years ago I saw a specialist because I was unable to use one shoulder. One of his recommendations was to do tai chi. I practice the Taoist Tai Chi® arts daily and it is my first port of call when my pain accelerates. I have also benefited by feeling more in control of what happens to my body and my pain levels.”
