Re: "Blending Physical Therapy with Martial Arts"

[quote=AikiWeb System;174194] What are your thoughts on taking aikido principles to such fields as physical therapy?[quote]
IMHO, the application of Aikido principles is everywhere. I would agree with the relaxed, connected, moving from the center, and extending energy (ki/intent) works wonders in physical and massage therapies. It helps if the person on the receiving end reciprocates too.
