Using Tai Chi and Qigong to Treat Cancer Symptoms.
Qigong has been a tool in the Traditional Chinese Medicine [TCM] toolbox for thousands of years. Tai chi is another related tool that is of more recent origin. Although these two types of moving meditation-type exercises have been widely known and used in China and other parts of Asia, they have become more popular as supplementary therapies for a wide range of ailments in the west only more recently. The present article reviews the results of the application of tai chi and qigong to the treatment of cancer patients. Several studies have found that the addition of tai chi or qigong to the treatment of cancer can result in significant improvement in the areas of depression, fatigue, sleep quality, anxiety, and overall quality of life.
