Pain Relief through Taoist Tai Chi® arts
The Pain Relief Program is integrated into all Taoist Tai Chi® arts programs. For many people Taoist Tai Chi® practice helps them find a way to reduce pain, increase vitality and improve mobility and function.
Pain can come in many forms, whether physical, mental or spiritual. Taoist Tai Chi® arts help people with chronic and serious problems, including arthritis, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder, cardiac rehabilitation, and brain injury, risk of falling, asthma, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder, depression, as well as the stresses of daily life.
At our classes and programs you will experience benefits to body, mind, and spirit, make friends and hear remarkable stories of health improvement. You will find that Taoist Tai Chi® arts are more than just physical training. An atmosphere of compassion and inclusion are at the heart of who we are as a charitable non profit and volunteer based organization. Our mission is to relieve suffering and our hope is that each person finds a renewed conviction that they can make a difference in their own health and life.
We offer classes and programs at locations and centres across Canada, which are open to everyone. For those with decreased mobility movements can be adapted as needed.
