Originated from Chinese internal martial arts, Taijiquan (太极拳), or Tai Chi, is one of the most popular and effective mind & body healing arts for people of all ages and health conditions in the world.
The 13 moves of wheelchair Taijiquan form was developed by Dr. Zibin Guo, a medical anthropologist and Taijiquan master, in working with people of physical disabilities in both United States and China.

The Wheelchair/Adaptive Tai Chi for Veterans program is helping veterans deal with health issues.
