    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    Tai chi exercises and demos
    Patricia Farrell, PhD posted:
    Tai chi, an ancient Chinese form of exercise for health maintenance, can be useful to just about everyone and it can relieve stress and help with movement. I've posted a number of videos which demonstrate this technique for people with arthritis, osteoporosis and even those in wheelchairs or who need to be seated. Although these are all videos from Dr. Lam, a family physician and tai chi expert, I am not indicating you should buy anything. It's just to give you an idea what it is and then you might want to join a local group at one of the community centers in your area or even suggest they start one if they don't already have a tai chi group.
