Tai Chi Is The Key
To Improve Proprioception And Kinesthetic Sense


Testimonial – Ms. Jan Saddington

 

Tai Chi is a great exercise to improve proprioception and kinesthetic sense.  What does that mean? During movement of any kind, we are constantly losing our balance and regaining it quickly. Better balance makes athletes less likely to be injured and reduces falls among the elderly. Balance is improved by improving your proprioception and kinesthetic sense.

Proprioception is the ability of your brain to communicate and manage parts of your body with each other.  It is your reflexes working to keep your body in balance. Good exercises to improve proprioception are those that challenge your balance and equilibrium.  (That sounds like Tai Chi to me!)

Kinesthetic Sense is an outer sense that works with your body in space and time. It is your mind knowing where each part of your body is in relation to things around you.  Tai Chi improves kinesthetic awareness because it requires coordination and movement control and can be improved through practice.

Improving your proprioception and kinesthetic awareness can improve your Tennis, Golf and overall wellbeing.
