Reviews of Dr Paul Lam Talks You Through Tai Chi for Arthritis:

* \"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.\" - Bill Edwards, Pennsylvania USA * \"...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.\" - Gladys Aparicio
* \"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 unsociable.
Just over a year ago 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.\"
