It can take awhile for people beginning Tai Chi from scratch to a point where they begin to feel comfortable with the way we move in Tai Chi. Everyone is different and new students have reported physical symptoms such as: stiffness, muscular tension, discomfort in the calves, knees, thighs, back etc when first beginning their practice. Other symptoms have included dizziness, nausea, feelings of hot flushes, and other disorienting releases of heat/energy. Because people normally move quickly and habitually, there is often an inability/difficulty to stay still or as move slowly as we do in Tai Chi. Usually after a period of time, sometimes a couple of weeks (depending on the amount of self-practice) these discomforts subside and they can feel themselves more comfortably doing the Tai Chi movements more calmly as their body adjusts. Occasionally people who have a chronically painful condition bravely try Tai Chi but find that the deliberate slow movements or the static postures only aggravate their condition. I feel for these people and commend them for having the initiative to try something to reduce their daily suffering. As much as I believe in the positive benefits of regular quality Tai Chi practice, unfortunately it can't help everybody.
These are my thoughts about various aspects of Tai Chi. They may or may not be original and I try to give credit where credit is due.
