As a follow up to the previous post, this is from the journal of Traditional Eastern Health & Fitness; While preventing falls may not be high on your list of reasons for studying Tai Chi (QiGong), it's certainly an important goal for the senior population. Over 30% of people aged 65 or more experience at least one fall per year and 15% of those falls result in serious injuries. Falls are the sixth largest cause of death among seniors and contribute to a general health decline even when they're not the direct cause of death. Falls are expensive. Unlike anecdotal evidence that the skeptical can shrug off as Eastern mysticism, this study involved 8 medical facilities, including some of the most esteemed names in Western medical science: Harvard, Yale, Centers for Disease Control, Washington University School of Medicine and Emory University. One of Dr. Kleins areas of research was Fall Prevention. We know the 24 Posture QiGong improves balance but we have added specific walking QiGong for added stability. Seniors need this for their own health and fall prevention and this population continues to grow. In addition it is very cost effective and within their reach. Thank you as always
The level II certification program is ready. We will be teaching the full recovery program for individuals with cancer and our fall prevention program which was developed by Dr. Penny Klein PT PeD, these programs you will be able to teach with confidence. These are huge markets with a substantial need. Falls are the # 1 cause of injury for people over 65 and the #6 cause of death. Are program is proven. recovery for individuals with cancer is self explanatory and is also a proven system. Do you feel called to help? For more information contact me.
Just wanted to coment on the below article titled "physical rehab, a little recognized need for post cancer care" the article points out that there is little protocol for the recovery for cancer patients. The cancer students I teach found out about QiGong by chance. There health and lives changed dramatically through QiGong. On Wednesday's class, a student told me her (brain) Timor continues to shrink, she has her balance back and feels wonderful. Another emailed me who has been cancer free (non Hodgkin's lymphoma) for several months. She wants to bring friends for a special class. She laughed because her doctor was so pleased with himself with her progress. Theses types of comments are the rule not the exception. So the physiatrist (medical rehab Dr.) stated that there was nothing to help him through his recovery. He also states there is a need for a recovery system. I'm paraphrasing here but same point. We as instructors of this system have the solution. Backed by medical studies and 15 years of experience with cancer patients. Now I'm putting together a presentation package to be given to doctors, clinics and hospitals to show how we can offer a cancer recovery program for there patients with compensation plans for instructors. I'll keep you posted Good night!
Was a guest on a syndicated radio shoe "uncommon awareness" last Friday. I have been invited back for a third show. I'll keep you all posted. I will have the first 2 posted soon. I'm not good with this technology but getting better.
Hello, I was on a syndicated radio show in the U.S. Last night. The two hour discussion was the second in a month. I have been asked if I would come back for a third show to wich I agreed. I will post the link to the pod cast for anyone wishing to listen. Also I will attempt to ad an article from CTV news regarding a physiatrist doing exercises with cancer patients to help in their recovery. His complaint was, there are standard protocols for rehabilitation for heart attack/stoke patients as well as post surgery, and other health issues, but no standard recovery for individuals with cancer. Guess what? We have a proven recovery system that I have developed over 15 years of consistent practice with cancer patients. The results are backed by a number of major medical universities. You all have the knowledge and abilities to do this work. I have added 3 other WU YI JIE HE QiGong routines for recovery QiGong they are on a new dvd just released and are included in the recently released instructors manual. More to follow, I'm of to teach QiGong to the Saturday morning class. Have a great day! 😃
