My over enthusiastic GP decided to put me on a 24 hour blood pressure monitoring machine and I thought TaiJi'ers may be interested. I chose to be monitored on a day I do 3 classes. Every 30 mins it took a reading. When I was doing the form, my BP averaged 90 over 65...much the same as when I was asleep (the buzzing and having my arm squeezed woke me enough to get the reading) I decided to do some dynamic push hands for 30 mins with a rather large male training partner....reading was 190/115. I did it to be naughty cos my doctor told me to stop all taiji even though he doesn't know what it is....grrrr. I stopped training and we had a cuppa tea and the next reading half an hour later was 120 over 80. The point being, I have read many articles and tests which purportedly show that TaiJi lowers blood pressure. Although I could only check for 24 hours, I found the results both interesting and half-expected.
