Regular practice of Tai Chi can lead to better health. Nature intends the human body to move and be active. Consequently, if we neglect movement a host of health problems may arise. Inactive muscles quickly deteriorate and joints become stiff. This can result in pain and reduced function. Keeping physically active through healthy movement will help to keep muscles toned. In addition, activity will maintain range of motion within joints and release tension within the body.
