CBS and NPR Report the Benefits of Tai Chi for Parkinson's Disease
 
February 6, 2015 -
On Feb 6, 2015, the day when a Tai Chi expert appeared in the Early Show on CBS to demonstrate the Tai Chi movements, CBSNews.com published an article from WebMD on the effectiveness of Tai Chi for helping people with Parkinson's disease. Calling Tai Chi "come out tops", the article claims that Tai Chi may offer an edge over more conventional kinds of exercise like resistance training, probably because of the mind-body connection that's encouraged throughout the poses. The article also cited several renowned experts in the field of medical researches for Tai Chi, including Dr. Fuzhong Li from the Oregon Research Institute and Dr. Chenchen Wang from Tufts University School of Medicine. The full article can be read here.

In that same week, NPR featured a story about how exercise, including Tai Chi, can help alleviate the symptoms of Parkinson's Disease. Dr. Peter Wayne, a professor at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women's Hospital and author of the Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi, described on air how Tai Chi can help improve balance and strength in older adults, and benefit individuals suffering from the disease.
