It is considered healing movement for every body because it is a gentle and relaxing experience that is accessible to most people regardless of physical condition (there are even classes especially adapted to individuals in wheelchairs). Benefits of Tai Chi include improved balance, posture, bone density, blood pressure, sleep, digestion, and immunity. It also reduces chronic pain and improves cardiovascular and nervous system disorders.
