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?

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

Over five weeks, our Exercise Physiologists 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.

Please note:

  • A referral from DVA or Medicare may be required to participate in this program.
  • Participating in this program means that you are expected to attend all sessions. 

Upcoming Program


Our next program will run at the Mates4Mates Townsville Centre, every Tuesday, starting 4 June to 9 July 2024, from 1:00pm to 2:00pm.

An initial consultation will take place prior to the program, with a final consultation to take place after the program is completed.

Veterans and family members who are interested in participating in the Clinical Tai Chi Program will need to undertake an expression of interest (EOI) process. This EOI includes a clinical screening to ensure this program is suitable for you.  

Expressions of interest for this program have now closed.
