Tai Chi for Health Professionals

Six week evidence-based online tai chi course for health professionals 

Course enrolment open now
Course starts 28th March 2022

Our six week blended learning course is designed for rehabilitation professionals who want to understand how to implement tai chi based movements with their patients.

Tai chi is regularly promoted in the media and recommended in the physical activity guidelines in the UK and other countries. Research supports its use for a range of health conditions.

Too often we see tai chi and qigong presented uncritically as a panacea without an understanding of underlying mechanisms and the need for adaption to suit different populations.

This course will address misconceptions and help you navigate the research on tai chi and qigong so you and your patients can get the most from this promising but often misunderstood movement modality.

This course aimed at: Occupational Therapists, Occupational Therapy Assistants, Physical Therapists, Physical Therapist Assistants, Fitness Professionals, and University teaching staff.
