Mates4Mates Clinical Tai Chi Program

Are you a veteran or family member who wants to manage pain and other chronic conditions through tai chi? 

Then the Clinical Tai Chi Program may be for you.

What is the Clinical Tai Chi Program?

Newly developed by Mates4Mates, the Clinical Tai Chi Program aims to help veterans and family members improve their physical and mental health through evidence-based, mindful exercises.

The program has been designed by our Exercise Physiologists and will teach participants tai chi exercises with the aim to improve their symptoms of chronic pain, strength and flexibility, balance and falls prevention, as well as reduce their symptoms of stress.
