TCUGB-CIMSPA developing National Standards for tai chi in Health care

Tai Chi & Qigong Union for Great Britain(TCUGB) and Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA) are working together to develop national standards for tai chi and qigong for healthcare and well-being.

The aim is to have a nationally accredited qualification that will enable the NHS and other organisations to have confidence sessions for patients and training for staff. Currently only www.midlandstaichirehab.com is accredited to train NHS staff but that can expand once the full standards are issued later this year. For now, details of the purpose of the standards, and research into tai chi and qigong, can be found at https://www.networks.nhs.uk/nhs-networks/tai-chi-chi-kung-for-rehabilitation
