Mindfulness Meditation and Relaxation Response Have Different Effects on Brain Function

Whenever I read about studies having to do with these or other related subjects (e.g., rehab, fitness training, self-defense tactics), I am struck by the fact that they are really researching Tai chi. (Here is the link to the discussion of the Study that provoked this Post.) Grey Cook’s book, Movement comes to mind as a classic example.

Tai Chi Chuan (the “Chuan” connotes the martial aspects of the discipline) is all of these things simultaneously; and more. People that I speak with know that I am a Tai Chi guy, so they just chalk it up to my enthusiasm. Some people, though, who are in the middle of the world of related research are able to appreciate the “complete” nature of Tai Chi Chuan.

Of course not all Tai Chi is equal: you have to have good instruction; and you have to practice correctly. But training within a traditional Tai Chi syllabus under good instruction provides as complete a system of exercise and self-defense, including all aspects of exercise (including rehab) as a person is going to find.
