Fibromyalgia symptoms 'allieviated' by tai chi27th August 2010
Arthritis Research UK is currently running a clinical trial to establish the effectiveness of exercise and cognitive behavioural therapy in people with chronic widespread pain, which includes fibromyalgia.
It comes as research has shown that a significant number of people with fibromyalgia may benefit from practicing tai chi, a martial art form which involves a combination of meditation and slow, gentle movements, along with relaxation and deep breathing. Previous research has shown that it can help with muscle strength, posture, balance, sleep and coordination.
