Can Tai Chi Ease the Symtoms of Fibromyalgia?

A recent issue of the New England Journal of Medicine contains a study suggesting that Tai Chi may ease the pain and discomfort associated with fibromyalgia.    Tai Chi, the ancient practice of slow movement, breathing and meditation may reduce pain because of its focus on the mind-body connection.

The NEJM study looked at a small group of trial participants and focused on only one type of Tai Chi – researchers are planning larger scale trials and evaluations of different schools of Tai Chi.

Still, this study offers promising hope that this ancient and inexpensive therapy may improve the lives of thousands of fibromyalgia sufferers.
