This is an introductory, one day course designed to be relevant to all health care professionals who want to start an innovative approach for treating patients with musculoskeletal and chronic conditions and have an interest in learning about the balance system based on tai chi principles.  Physiotherapists, occupational therapists, kinesiologists, recreation therapists, nurses, rehab assistants, fitness instructors and physicians can particularly benefit from taking this course, which is a combination of theory and demonstration with small group practice of tai chi movements and postures. The course content can be applied in different settings, such as private clinics, hospitals, long-term care facilities, wellness centres, and community health centres. The system of balance works the static and dynamic balance. The balance training at all levels is a useful intervention in the rehabilitation of postural stability impairment as well as in training to improve performance.  The Liveby Tai Chi “System of Balance” method, incorporates concepts of an evidence-based approach called Sensory Training (STM), which is defined as a progressive balance training program where the dose and progression of the balance challenges are taken into consideration.
