Tai chi may be an­swer to in­jury preven­tion

Central Otago Mirror - - LAKES DISTRICT SPORT -

Acupunc­tur­ists Jo­han Hausen and Daniel Judd hope to pre­vent in­juries by of­fer­ing ther­a­peu­tic tai chi classes in Queen­stown and Cromwell for peo­ple of all ages and abil­i­ties. Based at Queen­stown and Cromwell Health, they see a num­ber of pa­tients who could pre­vent in­juries by tak­ing bet­ter care of them­selves, and be­lieve tai chi is the an­swer. ‘‘In China they say preven­tion is the high­est medicine. If you start dig­ging a well when you are thirsty it’s too late,’’ Hausen said. Classes will be held in the Queen­stown Gar­dens on Tuesdays and Satur­days at 7am and can be at­tended for a do­na­tion. Cromwell classes will be held on Wed­nes­days and Fri­days at 6.30pm. For more de­tails contact Queen­stown Health 442 8190, Cromwell Health 445 3222 or Hausen di­rectly on 021 0236 1275.
