Chemotherapy Patients Benefit from Tai Chi

Tai chi can help reverse the affects of chemotherapy in cancer patients.

Tai chi can help reverse the affects of chemotherapy in cancer patients.

Today’s cancer drugs are better than ever for eradicating tumors. However, these powerful drugs sometimes cause troubling side effects that linger long after cancer is gone.

One major drawback to chemotherapy is loss of verbal fluency and memory. Now, a recent study from the University of Missouri says tai chi, a type of exercise that originated in China, may help people regain cognitive abilities lost as a result of treatment.

Tai chi combines slow-motion movements with focused breathing and relaxation.

In the study, women who had undergone chemotherapy took a one-hour tai chi class twice a week for 10 weeks, and reported improvements in memory and attention, as well as in stress levels, mood and energy.
