Tai Chi, Health for Life
By Bruce Kumar Frantzis. 7.25"x 9.25", 300 pages. Western medical studies demonstrate that Tai Chi—' the perfect exercise,' according to Time magazine—combats immune deficiencies, mitigates arthritis, improves circulation, decreases high blood pressure, and helps the elderly regain physical balance. This comprehensive guide reveals how and why. Rather than teaching a specific style of Tai Chi, the book gives readers the intellectual foundation and inspiration to use the practice as a potent preventative healthcare routine and regain control of their health. Written by one of the first Westerners to become a Taoist lineage master, the book is full of practical, down-to-earth information, and covers wide-ranging topics including choosing an appropriate style and teacher; using Tai Chi to boost mental stamina and improve workplace productivity; how it enhances sexual, athletic, and intellectual performance; Tai Chi's relationship to Chinese medicine and Taoist philosophy; and how it can be used as a moving meditation and spiritual practice.
