A CATCH UP WITH SUZANNE TANG
In March, the very first Kinetic Control (KC) study group in Asia was hosted at the ”康卓健康 OPTimal COntrol Wellness Centre” in Taipei, founded by Kinetic Control Accredited Tutor, Suzanne Tang, at the beginning of this year.
To start the day, KC tutor Tina Lin delivered a key theory review, followed by clinical case study led by Suzanne. The study group was a huge success, helping participants not only review what they had covered on previous courses, but also clarify the question raised by when they apply the KC process in clinical practice. The success of the day has prompted Suzanne to host more study groups in the near future.
The venue, the OPTimal COntrol Wellness Centre, mainly focuses on promoting ‘the health of movement (Movement Health) for the general public, physiotherapists and all movement professions/practitioners.
The OPTimal COntrol Wellness Centre provides TPM Active movement assessment and retraining along with other movement-based training classes, such as Pilates and GYROKINESIS; all aim to prevent musculoskeletal problems and pain in addition to improving function and elevating sports performance.
The centre also provides an excellent learning environment for movement professions, hosting a series of KC courses for physiotherapist and plus ‘The Performance Matrix’ (TPM) courses for all movement professions.
Outlining the overarching goal of the centre, Suzanne states,
“OPTimal COntrol Wellness Centre is helping people regain optimal control and optimal choices in their life, helping people move better, feel better and perform better. We empower clients, therapists and trainers with movement!”
“Being a member of the Comera Movement Science family is really a blessing. Our professional teaching teams are formed by the best therapists and movement professions all around the world. In regular online meetings and annual internal training projects, we discuss teaching methods, clinical experiences, latest researches and scientific evidence, which enormously helps our professional development. We are not on our own, by supporting each other, we are growing in an amazing way both in teaching and clinical practice.”
Her passion for teaching and spreading the movement message is apparent; Suzanne says,
“More and more movement related professions have done the KC courses / TPM courses in Asia. In Taiwan, the Taiwan Physical Therapy Association hosts the ‘Kinetic Control - The Movement Solution 1’ at least once a year and is in the process of organising ‘The Movement Solution 2 & 3’ to run twice in 2020. The OPTimal Control Wellness Center organises KC - Modular Courses every 2 months, and, we have just completed the very first TPM course, with 10 new TPM Movement Specialists joining us.”
With more and more movement professions/practitioner joining both the KC and TPM family, the Optimal Control Wellness Center will keep working along with Comera Movement Science to develop the bigger movement family. Finally, Suzanne states,
“We all are very excited about the “movement movement” we are developing together in Asia. We are looking forward to your participation in the quickly growing movement family.”
