"I am a geriatric
nurse practitioner from the University of Pennsylvania. I am currently
managing a research project for fall prevention in the inner city
elderly. I previewed several videos on Tai Chi, including the one used
for the study done in Atlanta that showed the effectiveness of Tai Chi
for fall prevention. I found that the videos by Dr. Lam were the most
helpful by far. They are the next best thing to having a teacher in the
room with you! Dr. Lam's extensive experience enables him to point out
areas that are difficult for many students. I highly recommend these
videos for self learning."

"I got the
diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis in the autumn of 1998...a good friend
back home in Norway (who's been practicing tai chi for years) sent me a
present. It was a videotape called "Tai Chi for Arthritis." "This must
be something for you," she wrote. It was.
I started practicing,
following the instructions of the videotape. I felt immediately that
something good was happening. Long before I had even learned the 12
movements properly, I felt improvement in my shoulders. There was
warmth, blood circulation, more mobility. My shoulders came to life
again! It felt like those tight joints loosened up and regained space.
And then, remarkably fast, the pain vanished and the strength came back.
I had had big problems with hanging up a towel. I had to bend down to
the floor to brush my hair, etc. Now gradually I could do these things
more and more easily, the normal way, without pain. But it wasn't just
my shoulders that benefited. My neck and arms became less painful, and I
got more energy overall. And of course I slept better at night. And,
maybe the most important: My depression disappeared. On bad days,
normally due to bad weather, not only had my body been affected but my
mind as well-sometimes even more severely than my body. During those
days I could see no solution to any problem, and I felt totally useless.
I cried a lot. Now, during January 2002 I noticed that bad weather
didn't affect me that way anymore. It did, and still does, affect my
body to a certain extent, but not my mood!..."
"...We are doing
the tai chi forms for the first time, and we love it. We became
interested because my aunt, who lives in Washington, has been practicing
it for some time. She is 88 years old,very healthy and still very
active...The reason we ordered again is that my sisters and a
sister-in-law in Peru are interested in starting the exercises too, so
we are going to send them the videos."
"I am a forty eight
year old Nurse and after having a healthy and active life style I was
diagnosed as having Rheumatoid Arthritis five years ago. Since then I?ve
tried numerous Anti-inflammatory drugs, Arthritis diet, exercise and
even Yoga, but I was still in constant pain and was limping quite badly.
Sometimes I couldn?t even lift a cup of coffee or dry myself after a
shower in the morning because my joints were so painful. It was so bad
that I either had to take days off work or take regular pain killers
before I went to work. This was starting to get me down as the side
effects of the medications were starting to effect my personality and I
wasn?t feeling quite myself. I became very depressed, irritable and

I heard about your Tai Chi classes through the Arthritis Foundation and
immediately enrolled. Within a few weeks I noticed the difference. This
was one class I was looking forward to attending every week as I was
actually enjoying doing Tai Chi because it was such a gentle form of
exercise... Since taking up Tai Chi I noticed I?ve become much more
flexible and not limping anymore and above all, I rarely need to take
pain killers." - Name withheld upon request
