Tai Chi to ease the pain.

As we age gracefully, (or ungracefully), we start to wobble a bit, joints don't move like they use to, bending becomes a hazard our strength mysteriously evaporates along with our car keys.
Sun Style Tai Chi is designed in such a way to reduce pain; improve posture, balance, confidence, muscular strength and flexibility, provide stress relief, improve sleep, and help boost memory so you can finally remember where you put the lost car keys.
Sun style has also been scientifically proven to help in reducing symptoms of arthritis and is used in many practices as part of a falls prevention movement program
Evidence-based and shown to prevent falls, reduce pain and improve quality of life for arthritis suffers by improving flexibility, balance, strength and confidence. Not to mention the relaxation and stress relief.
The NZ Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC), back in 2000, came to the realisation that prevention is often much cheaper than treatment.
Based on expert medical advice, from 2000 onwards ACC sponsors Sun Style Tai Chi programme Tai Chi for Arthritis around the country as a preventative measure.
