Tai Chi and Some Other CAM Found Effective for Reducing Headache Symptoms
November 28, 2011 -
NCCAM, a subsidiary of NIH, talks about what science says about headaches and CAM in its November issue of monthly e-newsletter, NCCAM Clinical Digest.

Here is what it says about Tai Chi

Scientific Evidence

  • Results from a small clinical trial suggested that a 15-week program of tai chi was effective in reducing the impact of tension-type headaches when compared to a wait-list control group.

Side Effects and Cautions

  • TTai chi is a relatively safe practice; however, some health care providers may advise their patients to modify or avoid certain tai chi postures due to acute back pain, knee problems, bone fractures, sprains, and osteoporosis.
