Tai Chi for Falls Prevention

Forthcoming Tai Chi for falls prevention training course starts May 2018

Why is balance important?

Balance seems to deteriorate from the age of forty, some say even earlier. It is a case of "use or lose it". In elderly people, poor balance more than doubles the risk of being seriously injured in a fall. Research into the falls of elderly people shows that:

• With strength, balance and endurance training, the risk of falling is reduced by 10%.

• With specialised balance training, the risk of falling is reduced by 25%.

• With regular Taiji training, the risk of falling is reduced by 47%.

The course will include both standing and seated tai chi and chi-kung exercise, plus relaxation techniques and use of guided imagery. Also included will be aspects of NLP and CBT to enable you to increase patient motivations, overcome their phobic response to their condition and reframe their anxieties.
