Autism is one among a great many conditions that benefit from Tai chi and Qi gong. This is from the World Tai Chi & Qi Gong folks.
“Research indicates Qigong can help children with Autism. Austism is growing at a disturbing rate. Autism is only one of the many major health issues that T’ai Chi and/or Qigong are PROVEN to help with. Yet, most people remain ignorant of these powerful tools, as their health professionals too often only inform about drug solutions or surgical approaches. This was one of the reasons World Tai Chi Day was first created.”
