Description

Some of your clients need more than traditional therapy. Something that is more than “therapy as usual” that will have them eager to engage in the therapeutic process. Yet you still need to use evidence-based practices to be reimbursed for your care.

Research shows Tai Chi combines gentle and adaptable exercises you can easily use with your clients for a variety of benefits, such as:

  • Improve flexibility and balance to prevent falls
  • Reduce stress and anxiety
  • Strengthen cardiovascular system
  • Decrease chronic pain
  • Recover from injuries and surgeries faster

Revolutionize your treatment sessions by incorporating elements of Tai Chi into your treatment plans for a variety of needs.

No experience with Tai Chi is required, as your instructor – a Master Trainer with the globallyrecognized Tai Chi for Health Institute – will teach you the movements step-by-step. This experiential live webcast will have you moving as you learn. Your instructor will connect the dots between the practices of Tai Chi, meditation, and positive psychology and demonstrate the techniques most appropriate for the rehabilitation your client needs.

Discover how you can use Tai Chi to add fun and energy to your sessions, engage your clients, and focus them on the path to healing and change.
