Description

Due to the high risks of falls in the elderly, rehab professions must explore effective, proven methods that decrease the risk for falls.  Tai Chi combines low-impact exercises you can easily use safely with patients. The practice puts profound emphasis on breathing, relaxing, and focusing the mind in specific postures. Benefits include improving flexibility/balance to prevent falls, reducing stress/anxiety, strengthening the cardiovascular system, decreasing chronic pain and recovering from injuries/surgeries faster.

Using a combination of clinical therapy skills, personal training experience, and expertise in Tai Chi, Ralph will equip you with the relevant tools and techniques to incorporate into your patients’ treatment plans. Adding this reimbursable therapy to your toolbox will immediately enable you to provide an additional modality to enhance patients’ stability, flexibility, core strength, posture, balance, and coordination.

This training opportunity is a MUST if you work with patients who need easily adaptable and non-invasive exercises—and an opportunity to practice Tai Chi.
