I came across this article today: Tai chi recommended to fight fibromyalgia I've heard of a couple of studies done recently regarding Tai Chi is a support/aid for Fybro sufferers, this article is the first I've seen that actually has a little more detail into the hows and who's of the study. Putting aside the combative aspects of traditional Tai Chi practice for a moment, (by which I mean applications, pushing hands, sparring etc) I find it interesting that the article notes that the study found a consistency between the instructors used; and I wonder what their over-all Tai Chi approach is? Are they "weekend instructor course" Tai Chi people, who teach a couple of classes at a local sports centre/village hall? Are they "martial art" teachers who, although teaching "for health" are still teaching from a martial perspective? Or is it a mix of different kinds of teacher? Just a few thoughts I had. Anyone care to weigh in?
