I discovered Tai Qi when working in Siberia with a group of medical professionals in 1988. Throughout my medical work in Siberia, I met a doctor from China who introduced me to Tai Qi as a source of external energy. I started practicing it twice a day and noticed feeling newly energized. I continued studying and practicing it for years, even after I moved to the United States. After concluding my medical education, I became a faculty member at Northwestern University in 2009, where I taught Tai Qi for six years. I simultaneously served on the faculty of The Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. I applied my knowledge of Tai Qi incorporating it when necessary for treatment protocol, and educating my students both at Northwestern University and at PCOM. Later, I developed the program for the Holistic and Organic Corporation, conducting trainings and seminars for medical professionals and individuals. This certification in Tai Qi course is developed for practitioners of Integrative Medicine, acupuncturists, medical doctors and chiropractors, massage therapists, and martial artists, who want to expand the list of their professional modalities, to introduce Tai Qi to their patients, and to incorporate this Tai Qi class into their multidisciplinary medical practice. Numerous patients taking this course in Tai Qi reported the reduction of stress and improvement of various aspects of their health, including improvement of memory, mental clarity, increased physical strength, increased joint flexibility, and reduction of pain.
