Tai Chi for Seniors


GAIN STEADINESS AND BALANCE 

Many health experts praise the benefits of tai chi for seniors who have lost mobility and steadiness with age. This ancient Chinese mind-body exercise focuses on slow gentle movements with little 

impact on the joints and bones. 


BETTER POSTURE AND COGNITIVE FUNCTION 

Research suggests the sturdy posturing, meditation, and breathing techniques of tai chi improve a variety of senior health concerns, including hand-eye coordination, balance, knee and back pain, joint 

flexibility, and improving cognitive function. 


BOOST QUALITY OF LIFE 

Furthermore, tai chi exercises for seniors have been shown to boost quality of life for patients with cancer and Parkinson’s disease. 


DECREASE THE CHANCE OF FALLS 

"The analysis, in The Journal of the American Geriatric Society, found that tai chi reduced the incidence of falls by 43 percent in those followed for less than a year"

Reiki for Seniors

     

EASE PAIN, REJUVENATE ENERGY AND BOOST MENTAL ALERTNESS 

Seniors respond to Reiki because of the way it relieves pain from tight muscles, increases range of motion in arthritic or stiff joints, and even improves coordination to reduce the risk for falls and fall-related injuries. Reiki can speed healing from injuries and surgery, ease breathing, boost 

vitality, and rejuvenate energy and mental alertness. 

Patients with dementia often benefit from Reiki when more traditional approaches cannot reach them. Reiki reduces stress, anxiety, and depression responses - three conditions that affect many seniors especially those with dementia. 


REIKI BRINGS PEACE AND CALM 

Reiki helps to bring peace and calm to an advanced senior’s or elder’s world, sometimes filled with pain, disability, foggy memory, never-ending doctor appointments, and other problems that make even the smallest activity of daily living seem like a monumental challenge. 


THE HEALING POWER OF TOUCH 

The healing power of touch brings the warmth of Reiki energy into stiff shoulders or sore feet, even for seniors who are normally sensitive to touch. Depending on the individual’s mindset and physical condition, seniors may benefit from short Reiki sessions at first then move into full 60- minute sessions as their body learns how to open itself and accept treatment.
