As explained by Harvard Health Publishing, there is growing evidence that Tai Chi, a mind-body practice that originated in China as a martial art, has value in treating or preventing many health problems. 

In this low-impact, slow-motion exercise, you go without pausing through a series of motions named for animal actions – for example, “white crane spreads its wings” – or martial arts moves, such as “box both ears.” As you move, you breathe deeply and naturally, focusing your attention – as in some kinds of meditation – on your bodily sensations. Tai Chi differs from other types of exercise in several respects. The movements are usually circular and never forced, the muscles are relaxed rather than tensed, the joints are not fully extended or bent, and connective tissues are not stretched. Tai Chi can be easily adapted for anyone.
