Continuous tai chi session (5 of 5)

Jo Lynne Robins, Ph.D., is an assistant professor in the VCU School of Nursing who has studied the effects of tai chi on cancer patients. Robins produced this video to help patients with health issues become acquainted with tai chi and mindfulness meditation techniques that help to reduce stress and improve physical and psychological help.

The study that supported the production of this video was funded by the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR), Center of Excellence in Biobehavioral Approaches to Symptom Management (P30 NR011403; M.J. Grap, PI); and facilitated by the Virginia Commonwealth University CCTR (UL1TR000058; J.N. Clore, Director).
