Qi Gong and Balance Study – Results Presentation
February 9 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
The public is invited to attend a special presentation by Dr. James Stahl, of Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, on the results of a joint Northshore research study to assess the impact of Medical Qi Gong on balance, gait, and movement self-confidence.
About the Study:
During the spring and summer of 2018 Human Harmonies Northshore, in partnership with Dr. James Stahl and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, conducted the Qi Gong and Balance Study. Three years in planning and conducted over multiple locations, this study measured the impact of a specific Qi Gong protocol on participants’ balance, gait and self-confidence in performing various movements associated with activities of daily living.
Impact of results:
According to the National Council on Aging, the Centers for Disease Control and various other organizations, mindful activities such as Qi Gong and Tai Chi can help improve balance, bone health, mental acuity and mood. We are very excited about the positive results our students and study participants have experienced through consistent practice. Come and see for yourself how these low-impact movements can improve quality of life for your patients, clients, or loved ones.
