with various stages of Parkinson's disease could improve their stability, ability to walk and frequency of falls by practicing Tai Chi.
The study involved 195 participants who were in stages
one to four of Parkinson's disease. Participants were randomly assigned to 60-minute sessions of one of three exercise groups (tai chi, resistance training or stretching).
Three months after the study ended, those in the Tai Chi group were able to maintain the benefits they had gained. The study authors believe that the slow, deliberate movements combined with breathing offer tremendous health benefits which include reducing stress and improving balance and posture.
