The Tai Chi Way - To Be Healthy & Happy


Product Description

In 1948, Dr Paul Lam's mother left him in the care of his grandmother in China. Ten months old at the time, Dr Lam grew up under the cruel Communist regime of Mao Zedong and nearly perished during the Great Famine. After escaping from China, studying in Hong Kong, and finally settling in Australia, Dr Lam won a scholarship to study medicine.

Malnutrition left Dr Lam with severe osteoarthritis. He found that tai chi not only helped him manage the condition but the ancient practice improved every aspect of his life. Dr Lam's burning passion to help others led him to create the Tai Chi for Health programs, where he combined his Western and Chinese medical knowledge with modern teaching methods. More than five million people worldwide practice his Tai Chi for Health programs.

The Tai Chi Way is Paul's story, told with passion and vivid detail to encourage people to remember that no matter how desperate things can seem in one's lie, there is always hope. With hard work and love you can overcome almost anything.

An Australian family physician, Dr Paul Lam is one of the most experienced and respected tai chi teachers in the world. He is a passionate teacher and leader in the field of tai chi for health improvement and has taight postgraduate doctors and other health professionals and trained thousands of tai chi instructors in Australia and overseas. He is the author of Born Strong, Teaching Tai Chi Effectively and Tai Chi for Beginners & the 24 Forms.
