ONE STEP AT A TIME: Improving Balance and Preventing Falls with Tai Chi and Qigong
“The Sage breathes from her heels…”
Tao Te Ching,
Have you ever worried about someone you love or yourself losing your balance and falling? Then you are not alone! Whatever your age, falling can have serious consequences, but especially if you are age 65 or older, the consequences of falling can actually be fatal or at least life threatening. In 2009, 18,000 older adults died from injuries received from falls, and 2.2 million were treated for nonfatal fall injuries in emergency departments.
