Neurologisches Fachkrankenhaus für Bewegungsstörungen/Parkinson, Beelitz-Heilstätten (Parkinson Clinic)

“Impressive proof of the effectiveness of Taiji has been offered in a controlled study published by the renowned New England Journal of Medicine in 2012. Parkinson patients participating in a Taiji training program showed marked improvement of mobility and balance. Our daily clinical experience also confirms the positive effects of Taiji. These intensive physical exercises help patients to move with greater awareness, thus achieving a higher degree of stability and control. Taiji may also have a positive influence on patients’ moods and brain functions as well as their agility and balance. In view of these positive effects of Taiji, the Clinic for Movement Disorders and Parkinson’s Disease Beelitz-Heilstätten in cooperation with Mr Mirko Lorenz has started a Taiji training program in 2012. After a period of intensive preliminary work Mr Lorenz is now supervising Taiji groups at our clinic on a regular basis. These classes have become a permanent feature of our therapeutic concept.”
