Tai Chi has a growing body of research proving its efficacy in treating disease, injury, and physical limitations. While Tai Chi form is important, the principles of Tai Chi are what facilitate the healing process.
This workshop emphasizes Tai Chi principles and the benefits of these Tai Chi principles as evidence based therapeutic intervention. Participants will learn the six basic principles of Tai Chi through simple Tai Chi form and QiGong. Through this experience, they will learn how to apply the Tai Chi principles to various patient diagnoses and clinical settings for addressing component deficits as well as functional outcomes.
