Stroke Rehabilitation and Taoist Tai Chi® arts
Taoist Tai Chi® practice can help with the mental, physical and emotional challenges of a stroke. Many people gain flexibility, freedom of movement, energy and clarity of thought. Most importantly, they find a fuller enjoyment of life.
Through gentle stretching and turning of the spine, Taoist Tai Chi® arts have a deep effect on the brain. They exercise the whole physiology, building coordination and new neural pathways through balanced, natural movement.
Taoist Tai Chi® practice is also a form of moving meditation that calms and clears the mind, cultivating a feeling of lightness and well-being as well as deep strength.
“I often forget I had a stroke last December. I have regained 100% of the mental and physical loss through the practice of Taoist Tai Chi® arts!”
