Description

You work hard to bring healing to your patients. Bringing an end to pain and restoring movement, strength, dignity, and independence. With the right skills and tools, your work can have life-changing impacts on those you serve.

But many patients fail to respond to traditional biomedical approaches that ignore the stress and social influences that can hinder therapeutic progress. And with a short amount of time in session, you worry that the “homework” you give your patients can seem tedious, unappealing, and ultimately fail to encourage them to commit to your treatment plan.

Watch this 2-day live webcast and discover how to break through these barriers and improve treatment sessions using the time-tested methods of Tai Chi and Qigong. In just 2 days, revolutionize your treatment methods, regardless of where you practice. These ancient methods of mind-body exercise have been proven to reduce chronic pain and emotional stress, which can dramatically improve a client’s self-efficacy during and after therapy.

In addition, these movements can help you reduce the risk of falls and dramatically improve functional movement. Best of all – get reimbursed using this comprehensive, mind-body method.

Don’t miss out – this hands-on certificate training is a must-have for any clinician looking to boost results by embracing the mind-body model of healthcare.
