Tai chi is an effective intervention for managing fatigue in patients with lung cancer undergoing chemotherapy, a Chinese study has found. Ninety-six patients were randomised to either tai chi, or low-impact exercise (control intervention), practiced for one hour, every other day for 12 weeks. At six weeks and 12 weeks, the tai chi group reported lower fatigue scores compared with the control group.
