This program provides training for Nurses and those who are already in health care professions, such as PTs, OTs, SPs, Home Health Aides, CNAs, Massage Therapists, Reiki practioners or anyone who is interested in augmenting their training skills to incorporate and implement the health benefits of Tai Chi within their professions. Those who would like to teach Tai Chi in hospitals, wellness centers, rehabs or any health care setting will also benefit from this program, which has been specially designed to work within safety parameters for knee and hip replacement, gait and balance problems, Dementia care and those challenged with cardio-pulmonary conditions.
Therapeutic Tai Chi differs from standard non-therapeutic Tai Chi in that the movements are easy to learn; do not require the patient to move outside normal range of motion or in an extended space like traditional Tai Chi. Therapeutic Tai Chi, unlike other forms of Tai Chi is completely bi-lateral, with all movement returning to a central position so that the practitioner can balance and breathe before moving on to the next step. The course will cover how to adapt the material for those who must be seated during exercise; are in acute care or have cognitive challenges. Excellent for those working with brain trauma patients.
Teacher Certification for all participants who complete 95% of the curriculum and who can demonstrate ability to perform all of the components of the program, as well as how to adapt it to the various health modalities in which they work or plan to work.
Student Handbook included with course.
Currently offered in select colleges at a higher rate.
