T’ai Chi

A very gentle, yet proven effective way of reducing stress and blood pressure (indeed,of benefiting the entire cardio-vascular system), T’ai Chi is one of the best ways of improving balance and muscle strength for anyone at risk of falling. Through practicing its slow, stylised, dance-like movements, your concentration will improve and you will learn to live more in the moment.

It is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence as a useful part of any Falls Prevention programme.
