    The NASM approach for clients begins with a subjective medical history to identify specific health concerns that should be cleared with a healthcare provider before training. Next are a series of objective assessments to help determine other readiness factors like "postural distortions." Nearly all of us have "postural distortions" which if left untreated typically lead to unnecessary decreases in locomotion and natural joint life and unnecessary increases in pain and demobilization resulting in injuries related to falling. 

Once stability is established, individual training goals are explored. However, NASM protocols and Tai Chi share the belief that balance should always be revisited, and kept interesting. NASM balance exercises are made more challenging by creating a "controlled unstable environment" and Tai Chi challenges balance every time we enter into it. If it's been a while since you've felt comfortable moving in your own skin, I invite you to come to see if Tai Chi Therapy helps you realize what it feels like to be trained and encouraged to empower yourself with functional and purposeful movement!


 Due to the individual nature of this training, classes are done privately, both individually or in 'select' small groups. If you'd like more information about the NASM process, contact Will for a free/no-obligation consultation and see if these services are right for you.
