Report from the New England Journal of Medicine

Using elements found in the Sunset Tai Chi program, a controlled study at Tufts School of Medicine showed the benefits of tai chi for fibromyalgia. The results were published in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine on August 19, 2010 regarding this single-blind, randomized trial of classic Yang-style Tai Chi as compared with a control intervention consisting of wellness education and stretching for the treatment of fibromyalgia. The conclusion is that Tai Chi may be a useful treatment for fibromyalgia and merits long-term study in larger study populations.

Dr. Chenchen Wang, a Tufts rheumatologist who led the study, said she attributed the results to the fact that fibromyalgia is a very complex problem and tai chi has multiple components -- physical, psychological, social and spiritual.
