Qigong & Tai Chi for Neck and Shoulder Dysfunction Video Program

Take the weight of the world off your shoulders so there is space for an adventure.

Millions of people are affected each year by neck and shoulder pain from conditions including spinal stenosis, disc herniation, rotator cuff injury, impingement syndromes, adhesive capsulitis, traumatic fractures, and post surgical issues. The ancient practices of Qigong & Tai Chi, which are typified by slow, graceful movements and coordinated breathing have been shown in health related research to enhance physical function as well as emotional and psychological wellbeing in people suffering with chronic neck and shoulder conditions. More than just movement practices however, Qigong & Tai Chi are also steeped in an ancient philosophy advocating balance and harmony in all areas of life. The Rehabilitative Tai Chi for Neck & Shoulders program focuses on a comprehensive set of core movements including visual, breath, and mindfulness components designed to enhance pain-free range of motion, strength, coordination, and endurance in the neck and upper extremities.

Brian Trzaskos, PT LMT CSCS CMP MI-C, SBMC

Founder and President of NEW Health

Brian believes education is powerful medicine that allows people to access their own highest healing potential. As a practicing physical therapist and student of eastern movement and meditation practices for over two decades, Brian holds multiple advanced certifications in both the Western and Eastern healing arts. After practicing for 16 years under the constraints of managed care, Brian experienced a deep discontentment with the health insurance system and its inability to place quality of care above costs. Notably, this time of frustration was accompanied by a series of stress-related illnesses which had seriously impacted Brian’s life, prompting him to delve more deeply into himself and strengthening his commitment to serve others. Out of this experience he created his own private pay practice and rediscovered the power of both Tai Chi and Qigong for personal cultivation and inner strength. He is now an author, national public speaker and thought leader in holistic therapeutic movement. Brian and his family live in the beautiful Champlain Valley in upstate NY.
“Brian is a master at taking seemingly complex information and creating user friendly tools that make sense, are effective and create just what is needed- more ease– in body and mind.”
