Tai Chi for Rehabilitation & Tai Chi for Arthritis

Tai Chi for Rehabilitation is a short form created by Dr Paul Lam.  It combines elements of three styles of Tai Chi - the Qigong of Sun, the flow of Yang and the energy of Chen.  It is an ideal introduction to Tai Chi for people who are challenged by very painful conditions or who need to begin exercising gently due to illness, injury or inactivity. 

 

Tai Chi for Arthritis is a popular programme based on Sun Style Tai Chi with its powerful Qigong, higher stance and follow steps. Many people have enjoyed learning this safe and effective programme and have gained significant health benefits. Scientific studies have proved its effectiveness in assisting pain relief, quality of life, balance and falls prevention.

Arthritis Foundations in Australia and many other countries support this Tai Chi programme.
