Are you a push over? It’s time to balance giving and receiving.
Welcome to this month’s IRQTC training tips newsletter and thank you so much for all the wonderful engagement last month following our newsletters on Resiliency and Bungee Chair lymph pumping.
This month we explore the concept of balance reactions in response to perturbations, and compare static vs. dynamic balance enhancement strategies. Traditional rhythmic stabilization training asks the client to hold and brace against incoming forces in order to improve functional stability. While this strategy can be effective for balance control when the perturbations are small, larger forces may result in a greater likelihood of balance loss. Rehabilitative Tai Chi employs “sensing hands” (aka push hands) practice to advance dynamic balance abilities in larger excursions from limited static postures. To see how we use “sensing hands” in our clinic just click on the video and instantly bring Rehabilitative Tai Chi into your clinic too!
