This groundbreaking book demonstrates the link between health and Metarobics, the author's term for slow, meditative mindful exercises that enhance blood oxygen saturation, diffusion, and oxygen-based metabolism. Metarobics—including tai chi, qigong, and yoga—focus on movement, relaxation, and deep breathing. Dr. Gryffin's research shows that these mindful exercises offer a wide range of benefits for treating chronic disease.
Tai chi practitioners have long reported health benefits including fitness, flexibility, calm, and focus. These reports were largely anecdotal until recent years, as Western researchers began investigating Metarobic activities and their many benefits. Today, scientists study tai chi's effects and doctors prescribe tai chi for patients recovering from injury, illness, and surgery.
In Tai Chi Healing Power, Dr. Gryffin cites numerous scientific studies as well as testimonials from patients who have experienced the natural healing benefits of Metarobic exercise. Many of them surmounted chronic health problems to improve their quality of life. Some even overcame grave diagnoses.
This book features
- More than 120 scientific studies on tai chi and other Metarobic exercises
- More than 50 case stories from tai chi practitioners
- Clear, straightforward language
- Tested guidelines to improve your Metarobic exercise and maximize health benefits
“This book presents over ten years of research into how and why tai chi benefits health from a physiological perspective,” Dr. Gryffin says. “The links I discovered will allow everyone from novice students to veteran teachers to maximize benefits for health and chronic conditions.”
In 1968, Dr. Kenneth Cooper's book Aerobics changed the world of health and fitness. Tai Chi Healing Power: The Metarobic® Effect How and Why Healing Works in Mindful Exercises is the next step in this evolution.
