● Health Benefits of Tai Chi and Its Role in Rehabilitation
Presented by Patricia Hoekman, 14 year Tai Chi Practitioner and Private Instructor
Be prepared to participate – dress with mobility in mind. Tai chi is especially useful for improving balance and preventing falls—a major concern for acoustic neuroma patients because it targets all the physical components needed to stay upright—leg strength, flexibility, range of motion, and reflexes.
● Meet and Greet, Caring and Sharing, Group Discussion Time
Please bring a snack to share. Bottled water will be available free of charge.

Who should attend? Family members, caregivers, friends and interested persons are encouraged to attend.
Benefits of attending a local support group include communicating in a nurturing, non-judgmental environment with others who have shared a common acoustic neuroma experience; sharing information on dealing with specific problems, educational opportunities about the latest acoustic neuroma topics of interest; and providing emotional support to all patients, both pre- and post-treatment. This helps in reducing the isolation and loneliness that many acoustic neuroma patients feel.
