Gentle Tai Chi-Qigong consists of gentle Qigong (Chee gung) stretches and Tai Chi (Tie chee) movements that help improve circulation and release stress. Gentle Tai Chi (originally called Easy Tai Chi) was developed over 15 years ago for Parkinson's patients. This form of tai chi is done standing with both feet on the floor. The moves are stationary, so it can also be done sitting. Balance aids such as the back of a chair or a walker can be used, if needed.
