Qigong improves quality of life in women undergoing radiotherapy for breast cancer - Chen - 2013 - Cancer - Wiley Online Library | Acupuncture | Scoop.it

BACKGROUND:

"Radiotherapy may lead to side effects that undermine patients' quality of life (QOL). Although mind-body practices like qigong appear to improve QOL in cancer survivors, little is known about their benefits for patients who are receiving radiotherapy. Thus, in the current randomized controlled trial, the authors examined the efficacy of a qigong intervention on QOL in women with breast cancer during and after treatment.
