Tai Chi as an Alternative and Complimentary Therapy for Anxiety
December 15, 2014 -
Anxiety has become a global public health problem. Tai Chi offers one possible way of reducing anxiety.

A joint study by Jackson State University in Missouri and the Legal Aid Society in New York City examined studies from 1989 to March 2014 to assess whether Tai Chi can be an efficacious approach for managing anxiety.

A systematic search of Medline, CINAHL, and Alt HealthWatch databases was conducted for quantitative articles involving applications of Tai Chi for anxiety. A total of 17 articles met the inclusion criteria. Of these, 8 were from the United States, 2 from Australia, 2 from Japan, 2 from Taiwan, and 1 each from Canada, Spain, and China.

Statistically significant results of anxiety reduction were reported in 12 of the studies reviewed. Despite the limitations of not all studies using randomized controlled designs, having smaller sample sizes, having different outcomes, having non-standardized tai chi interventions, and having varying lengths, the study found Tai Chi appearing to be a promising modality for anxiety management.
