Increase the effectiveness of your bodywork. Focusing on joint and muscle movement patterns you will learn how to follow the body's movement preferences to release acute and chronic holding that create pain. Releasing these patterns alleviates pain and increases range of motion.
Practicing Tai Chi re-energizes and relaxes me after a long day. The sense of being calm, yet strong, stays with me. I have more stamina and enthusiasm.
Massage has been the best investment in my health and well-being. Regular massage has greatly eased my aches and pains -- I have more energy and I go through my days with more ease.
In my daily life I notice I'm stronger, have more balance and more stamina - I feel like I'm cheating cause I'm not working out at the gym.
I started Tai Chi class December 2010 for weight bearing exercise. I have osteoporosis and I broke my hip (femur bone) July 2010. I had therapy twice a week for 6 weeks, but still had difficulty doing every day things: walking up and down steps, getting in and out of the car, needing to hold a chair to sit and stand, taking a shower, squats. Taking Tai Chi has made my body, knees, legs, arms stronger. Now it takes little effort. Tai Chi is teaching me to deal with stress, to relax. My attention is improving and taking direction.I was able to work in my flower beds this spring and thru summer. I have more flexibility, gradual gains in strength and balance.Thank you Pat and Patty. You guys are awesome.
