Tai Chi for Arthritis (TCA)-12 lessons with Dr Lam - recommended by CDC (Scroll down to see the free first lesson)

In 1996, Dr Lam with a team of medical and tai chi experts created this safe and easy to learn program. Medical studies confirm Tai Chi for Arthritis relieves pain, reduces falls and improves quality of life, that is why the Arthritis organisations around the world advocate this program and the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (www.CDC.gov) recommends it for fall prevention.

What is special about this DVD is that you will feel as though you are participating in Dr Lam’s class. After a brief introduction of what Tai Chi for Arthritis is and how this DVD can benefit you, Dr Lam will teach you with step-by-step instructions, lead you to practice and explain the reason behind every move. At the conclusion of the DVD Dr Lam will demonstrate the set from both front and back views. The unique music was composed with the rhythm and energy especially for this program!

It presents the entire program including warm up and cool down in a user friendly format. Dr Lam incorporates the tai chi principles to enhance your understanding and enjoyment.

  1. Just like a private lesson for beginners to use everyday. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Aug 2019

    We highly recommend Dr Paul Lams DVD for everyday use. After some weeks with our beginner group we found a vast improvement week to week after the class used the DVD to follow and practice at home.


  2. CLEAR INSTRUCTIONS 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Jun 2019

    Even if you are not all that quick at picking things up you will be able to follow these instructions. Dr Lam has a certain soothing manner that seems to take all the stress out of learning something. It certainly works for me, and where I was having trouble learning at the Tai Chi class I can now pick up what I missed at the class.
    The video is worth every cent!


  3. Tai Chi for Arthritis dvds 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jun 2019

    Congratulations on a fantastic educational dvd set, Dr Paul Lam. I am 71 years young and have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. Due to my hypermobility, I had developed problems with my balance. I consulted my Physio, who suggested that I try " Tai Chi for Arthritis" to see if it would help with this problem. After following Dr Lam's well explained and demonstrated dvd lessons, I soon started to notice an improvement, my Physio also commented on the improvement in my balance. I didn't realise how balance affects our quality of life until I devloped this instability. Thank You Dr Lam, I now enjoy getting out and about once again!


  4. Excellent . 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd May 2019

    As a beginner at Tai Chi, this program not only supplements my regular class it expands my understanding. It is well presented and moves at a pace which allows solid comprehension. Of course, the ability to replay lessons facilitates practise till "perfect".

  6. Better than I expected 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Apr 2019

    Hi
    Very easy to use and well organised. As somebody that has not done Tai Chi before I was hoping for an easy to use and organised instruction and progression. It is well put together and I feel like I am learning, improving and feeling better.

    Thanks


  7. Teaching in a Nutshell 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Apr 2019

    User friendly guidelines in a nutshell :)


  8. Better Health 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Apr 2019

    I am doing a U3A Tai Chi program using Dr. Lam's Arthritis program as I have constant back pain but I felt I needed more so purchased my own DVD and it's great as it gives me options to do the movements standing or sitting down. My pain is less, I go to the Chiropractor less and my breathing has improved. Love the gentle movements, detailed explanations and visuals.


  9. ENCOURAGES PRACTICE 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Aug 2018

    For many of the participants in my classes The Tai Chi for Arthritis Handbook encourages practice more than the DVD. The handbook is more portable than a DVD player and is used in a different way.
    Some of the participants hold the handbook while they practise the form. The handbook is a good size and shape and easy to hold for those with arthritis in their hands, yet the text is still easy to read.
    Others leave the handbook on a table, open at the place they're up to. Every time they pass the table and see the open book they stop and practise some tai chi.
    Being able to practise tai chi independently is an empowering experience for the participants.


  10. For beginners 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Jul 2018

    I recently did a pain management course and we had two sessions on Tai Chi. I fell in love with it. I have had to give up Zumba and Pilates. I have a stretching program at home and a stationary bike. But this I love. I put the dvd in and it actually helps the pain. Gentle soft movement. You can do it sitting in a chair, or standing. Easy to follow.
    Disc 1 . warm up and session 1 - has a group of people. forward facing and one person sitting. Dr Lam has his back to you for some of the time.
    There is warm down also.
    and interesting facts about Tai Chi.
    I am waiting on a class to start in my area, but will still use my dvd at home.
