Trial of Tai Chi Mind-Body Therapy for Fibromyalgia Now Recruiting

  [ 24 votes ]   [ 2 Comments ] • November 17, 2007

The Department of Rheumatology at Tufts New England Medical Center in Boston is recruiting subjects with Fibromyalgia for a study of the benefits of Tai Chi.

The purpose of the study is to obtain preliminary data on the effects of Tai Chi on musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, sleep quality, psychological distress, physical performance, and health status in patients with Fibromyalgia.

The intervention will involve a 12-week Tai Chi program by comparison with a 12-week stretching and wellness-education program.

What is Tai Chi? As the trial organizers describe it: “Tai Chi is a traditional Chinese discipline with both physical and mental components that appears to benefit a variety of chronic conditions. The physical component provides exercise that is consistent with that recommended for FM (muscle conditioning and aerobic cardiovascular exercise), while the mental component has the potential to improve psychological well-being. These effects are especially pertinent for the treatment of individuals with FM.”

See the description of the trial (NCT00515008) at for details, inclusion and exclusion criteria, and contact information.

I tried this program with a wonderful and very patient instructor but, unfortunately, I was not able to remember or physically hold the positions. What I had hoped would give me an opportunity to participate in a group activity, since I am alone alot, caused me so much anxiety and I felt I disappointed myself and my instructor. I had difficulty remaining focused for an hour and this too, was upseting to me. I have heard how yoga and relaxation has helped FM/CFIDS/ME patients but so far Xanax is my only support. does any one else have this problem?
