A Rehabilitative Qigong and Tai Chi session includes a complete client evaluation and development of an individualized program focusing on each client’s individual needs. The powerful practices of Qigong and Tai Chi will teach clients to integrate healing movements, deep breathing, meditation, and self-massage into an effective and inexpensive home healing program. Rehabilitative Qigong and Tai Chi sessions may include additional manual techniques such as CranialSacral or Myofascial therapies to enhance treatment effectiveness and optimize each client’s physical and emotional life.
Rehabilitative Qigong and Tai Chi programs have been designed for group learning where regional syndromes and common physical challenges can be addressed. Classes and workshops include education specific to client diagnosis as well as instruction and practice of Rehabilitative Qigong and Tai Chi techniques.
Research and experience has shown that Qigong/Tai Chi class participants continue to improve because it is so enjoyable to practice, whereas clients who use traditional therapy tend to lose interest.
In this way, Rehabilitative Qigong and Tai Chi group learning programs can be truly healing both physically and emotionally.
