QiGong has a positive effect on fibromyalgia

This randomzied controlled trial studied the effects of a 7-week Qigong intervention on 57 women with fibromyalgia. Significant improvements were found at post-treatment, on different aspects of pain and psychological health and distress. At 4-month follow-up, the majority of these results were either maintained or improved. The overall results show that Qigong has positive and reliable effects on fibromyalgia, suggesting it could be a useful complement to medical treatment of fibromyalgia. Haak T, Scott B.
