Tai Chi May Be New Fountain of Youth for Seniors

Industry: Fitness

Carol J. Buck, CEO of Xenna Corporation (www.xenna.com), says, “Tai Chi improves strength, agility and balance, and is particularly helpful as we age. It can make a tremendous difference in the way we feel and look, and may literally be a 'fountain of youth.' According to some Tai Chi masters, the base of Tai chi is the feet, and every anti-aging regimen should include proper foot care."

By now, most “boomers” and seniors have heard that regular exercise can reduce the risk of chronic diseases – including diabetes, heart disease and cancer. It also makes a tremendous difference in the way we feel and look – regardless of age.

Tai Chi, which combines a type of meditative relaxation process with flowing movements, is an especially beneficial exercise regimen for older individuals.

Carol J. Buck, CEO of Xenna Corporation (www.xenna.com), says, “Tai Chi improves strength, agility and balance, and is particularly helpful as we age because the exercises are low-impact. According to the masters of Tai chi, the base of Tai chi is the feet.”

For seniors, another important advantage of exercise routines that improve balance and flexibility, such as Tai Chi, is that they significantly help reduce the risk of falls and fall-related injuries.

Martial arts instructor Earnest Gill says, “The way of moving in Tai Chi gives stretching exercise to feet and ankles.”

“Moving from one position to another requires shifting weight back and forth from heel to toe as body weight is redistributed for different movements. The advantage for older people is that it’s virtually zero impact and movements are done slowly.”

In spite of the fact that there’s an awareness about the benefits of exercise, it appears that many seniors aren’t getting the message, and are reluctant to give Tai Chi a try.

Buck says, “Some seniors may be intimidated by images of slender young people doing complicated poses on TV. And, although many people who participate in Tai Chi wear special shoes, on some surfaces it’s better to do the exercises barefoot, which brings up another reason many seniors may be reluctant to step on the mat: Their feet are an embarrassment, being either dry and cracked or sporting unsightly toenails.”

For those individuals, Xenna products can help.

Xenna’s diabetic-friendly foot care products are distributed nationwide through chain drugstores, grocery and mass retailers. The company has an ongoing commitment to educating consumers about foot care issues and the benefits of natural products.

Xenna’s NonyX® Nail Gel (pronounced “Non-X”) and CalleX® Exfoliating Dry Heel Ointment are based on patented, natural formulations that focus on the exfoliation of keratin debris under toenails and dry, dead skin on the epidermis of dry feet. Both products are used by many podiatrists and are designed to improve the cosmetic appearance of feet and toenails.

NonyX Nail Gel was formulated to address the problem of unsightly yellow or discolored toenails.

Rated a “top niche brand” in 2010 by Drug Store News, NonyX Gel works by breaking down and removing keratin debris – the unsightly white or yellow substance under toenails that makes them so unattractive. With regular use, twice daily application results in improved nail color and clarity within 5 to 9 months as keratin debris clears out.

For dry, cracked feet, Xenna’s acid-free, diabetic-friendly CalleX Ointment offers a unique, fast-acting way to soft, smooth feet without the need to scrape or use a pumice stone – a procedure definitely not recommended for diabetics.

CalleX Ointment’s unique, natural enzymes break down and exfoliate only the dry, dead top layer of flakes or scales that contribute to the look and feel of rough-to-the-touch, unsightly feet.

The patented, exfoliating enzymes in CalleX are blended into a moisturizing base to keep feet hydrated. CalleX has a refreshing peppermint scent (from natural peppermint oil) that keeps unwanted foot odor at bay.

Both NonyX Gel and CalleX Ointment are natural, patented and free of potentially irritating urea, salicylic acid, parabens, lanolin, preservatives, artificial fragrance and colorants.

“People may think Tai Chi is like a mild form of karate,” Buck says. “It is a martial art, but it’s gentle, soothing and not at all violent. It’s great for increasing balance and flexibility. And – it’s great for keeping your feet youthful (so you are more comfortable going down stairs and walking on irregular or slippery surfaces. It relaxes both mind and body.”
