Summary
"Covering everything caregivers need to know about Taiji and Qigong, this illustrated guide provides an introduction to these forms of exercises and shows how to build up a program from easy steps to more challenging ones. There are exercises to stimulate every part of the body, with variations to suit the patient's needs and preferences. All the movements are adapted from the same ancient principles guiding classic Taiji and Qigong and will help strengthen the body as well as provide contemplative relaxation. This book will show occupational therapists, physical therapists, nurses, activity directors, mental health practitioners, martial arts instructors, and anyone else working with older people or those with physical disabilities, exactly how these simple techniques can make big improvements to a person's physical and mental well-being."--from cover, p.
