Our therapeutic training is based on taiji (Tai Chi, Tai Chi Chuan), a traditional Chinese art of moving and healing.
In Taiji ( TaiChi ) harmony of body and soul is achieved by tranquil and fluid movements, improving health and general well-being. By cooperating with the Parkinson Clinic (Fachklinik für Bewegungsstörungen) at Beelitz-Heilstätten we succeeded in transforming traditional taiji exercises into a system of training adapted to the special needs of Parkinson patients.
The effectiveness and value of taiji training for Parkinson patients have been demonstrated in an number of scientific studies. The training promotes relaxation and improves balance and agility, directional control and motor skills. It also lightens the patients’ mood and enhances general well-being.
