Cures/preventions: Proponents claim that T'ai Chi can also (1) cure illnesses such as hypertension, asthma, and insomnia; (2) prevent arteriosclerosis and spinal deformity, and (3) shorten recovery phase from long-term illness. Results from a study by Chen Munyi (1963) with elderlyl T'ai Chi practitioners show that this group had RTs, strength, and flexibility superior to nonpractitioners.
