The Health and Arthritis Institute

Tai Chi for Arthritis groupIMG_20140808_154117The health benefits of Tai Chi have been known to the Chinese for hundreds of years.

Now Gympie residents can also practice the gentle movements of Tai Chi to help in the management of arthritis, improve movement and to have fun as well. Tai Chi increases confidence and improves balance, builds muscle strength, bone mass and joint mobility, helping to manage arthritis. It also aids relaxation, coordination and visualisation.

Tai Chi for Arthritis consists of groups that meet every week at a local hall in Gympie. Groups take place in a friendly atmosphere of support and social interaction enjoyed by all.

How does CHSN assist the community?

“CHSN provides networking opportunities where common issues are identified, it’s a successful vehicle for lobbying for funds for the community and a great way to introduce new workers and projects.”
