Clinical Tai Chi for Rehabilitation

Course introduction

Over 30 randomised control trials demonstrated that Tai Chi significantly improved clinical symptoms of a range of chronic conditions, functional ability and the quality of life of patients with chronic conditions.

Based on compelling research evidence, informed by exercise science and guided by exercise prescription principles and safety guidelines, ©the Clinical Tai Chi for Rehabilitation Program is an evidence translation program for rehabilitation and management of chronic conditions in healthcare, residential and community settings. The Clinical Tai Chi for Rehabilitation Program has eight forms with each form containing symmetrical movements targeting various chronic conditions. The program is designed to reduce clinical symptoms, prevent functional decline and disability, regain functional ability and independence, and improve physical and mental health and the quality of life for patients living with chronic conditions.
