Paul Elliott has a diagnosis of Orthostatic Tremor and is a member of the Orthostatic Tremor UK Support Group.


He is a Martial Arts instructor and shares his experience of using Tai Chi and Reiki which he has adapted to help those with Orthostatic Tremor and as a qualified instructor, he offers an online Zoom class, teaching fellow O.T. members Tai Chi.


These exercises are very good at strengthening the leg muscles which are of great benefit physically and maintaining the core balance. As Paul has the same condition, he is very understanding of the need to sit, but encourages those taking part to stand and movements can be varied according to those with varying stages of Orthostatic Tremor.
