CLINICAL TAI CHI: SYSTEM OF BALANCE: LEVEL 1
There is a growing interest in the effectiveness of Tai Chi for improving balance, coordination, pain, and mental health. Tai Chi is an ancient physical activity in which several studies have demonstrated that it is an effective, evidence-based exercise in reducing pain related to chronic conditions and preventing falls by improving balance, flexibility, and muscle strength.
This course was designed to be of interest and practical use for Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Rehab Assistants, nurses, LPN, physicians, recreational therapists, Kinesiologists, and students.
This course will offer an innovative approach based on a system of balance where the principles of clinical Tai Chi can be applied to your practice.
The course combines online and in-person training with a Tai Chi postures' demonstration. Course content can be applied in different practice settings such as private clinics, hospitals, long-term care centers, wellness centers, and community health centers.
