Have you ever felt professionally frustrated, burned out, or undervalued? Patient appointments back up, the stack of unfinished charts grows on your desk, and you can’t seem to reach the top. You’re climbing a giant beanstalk – but there’s no gold at the top. Have you ever felt angry at the health care system, the insurance system, or any other system that categorizes patients by diagnosis codes and discharge dates?
I used be there too. Until one day, I woke up and realized I had been enduring these feelings of frustration — and I couldn’t remember how long this had been going on. My health and personal relationships were suffering and I blamed everything around me for making my life so unbelievably hard.
I wanted to have a better life. I wanted to become a better partner, father, neighbor, friend, brother, son, and rehab professional; I realized that if anything was going to change my frustrations, then it had to start with me. I made a list of things I could do to improve my life, but doing everything on this massive list seemed impossible. So I looked at overlapping items, chose the top three recurring themes, and found my number one item.
Number one, believe it or not, was practicing Qigong & Tai Chi. I was quite surprised that this simple activity showed up in each category, instead of things like “work harder” or “earn more money.” Practicing Qigong & Tai Chi helped me feel more peaceful, centered, and balanced, which translated directly into nurturing my relationships and all other areas of my life.
With this new-found understanding, I decided to learn and experience as much as possible about Qigong & Tai Chi practices, including taking courses, attending classes & workshops, and earning multiple certifications. On this path, I recognized the huge value in using Qigong & Tai Chi as a rehabilitation professional for my patients and even for myself. Disappointingly, I wasn’t able to earn a single CEU with all of the training that I went through.
Even though every certification I earned was highly valuable, organizations simply didn’t offer CEU’s for this type of training. It quickly became my mission to create Qigong & Tai Chi programs for rehabilitation professionals AND to offer CEU’s to validate those therapeutic processes. Now both the IRQTC Fundamentals and BEST certifications are recognized in over 30 states by the Federal State Boards of Physical Therapy.
