About the Health Recovery Program
The Health Recovery Program offers specialized week, weekend and day programs for people responding to aging, chronic illness or the consequences of injury. These programs for advancement of physical, mental and spiritual well-being have proven very effective as complementary therapy in aiding and speeding recovery. As needed, movements are adapted for people with reduced mobility. The Health Recovery Program is open to all.
Every month, people from around the world come to participate in a weeklong residential program at the International Centre. For some, it is their first experience of this art. Each person leaves with a renewed conviction that we can all make a real difference in our own health, and with a clear sense of how to go about it. Instructors gain in experience as they teach those with significant health problems.
Health Recovery Days and Weekends are offered several times a year. Those who participate are able to experience the Taoist Tai Chi™ arts first hand, listen to remarkable stories of health improvement, share a meal together and tour the peaceful grounds. These events, open to all – including health practitioners of all disciplines -, offer a taste of what a weeklong program provides.
This program at the Centre is inextricably linked to all classes offered in the 26 countries where branches of our organization are found. It is at the club level that students find the continued instruction and sense of community needed to support their ongoing practice.
Many conditions have shown to improve with the regular practice of this art, including high blood pressure, arthritis, back pain, low spirits, joint immobility, respiratory problems, digestive disorders, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, the long term consequences of trauma or stroke, aging and fibromyalgia.
The Health Recovery Program was made possible through Master Moy Lin Shin’s tireless efforts to pass on the gift of these arts of health to others, his system of accredited volunteer instructors, and his worldwide fund raising activities.
