About this article:

This article demonstrates the effectiveness of a simple qigong exercise in reducing symptoms of anxiety in young musiciens. Through a small amount of training, and brief practice, the students demonstrated reduction in elevated heart rate, and warmer hands before performances. This shows the value of qigong (visualisation and relaxation exercises) in treating anxiety or stress related conditions.

Traditional Chinese medical comprehensive therapy for cancer-related fatigue.
Publication Source:
Chin J Integr Med. 2015 Jun 24. [Epub ahead of print]
About this article:

This research discusses the role of Traditional Chinese Medicine in the treatment of fatigue related to cancer (CRF). It is suggested that through a differentiation of TCM syndrome patterns, and reccomended treatment with diet, sleep, exercise, acupuncture, and in severe cases herbal medicines, TCM treatment can help resolve fatigue. This approach uses the TCM concept of Zheng Qi, or correct and upright Qi...which in the case of cancer treatment has often been harmed, leaving a patient feeling weak. TCM therapy in these cases seeks to restore Zheng Qi.

The Study of Dynamic Characteristic of Acupoints Based on the Primary Dysmenorrhea Patients with the Tenderness Reflection on Diji (SP 8)

Evid Based Complement Alternat Med. 2015;2015:158012. doi: 10.1155/2015/158012. Epub 2015 Jun 16.
About this article:

This research study demonstrates how a single acupoint's location, determined by perceived soreness or sensitivity, can slightly change anatomic location from day to day, depending on the patient's physiological state. Elsewhere it has been hypothesized that this sensitivity is due to referred neurogenic activity1, and is correlated to TCM diagnostic techniques of palpation along the meridian.

Qigong as a Traditional Vegetative Biofeedback Therapy: Long-Term Conditioning of Physiological Mind-Body Effects
Publication Source:
BioMed Research International Volume 2015 (2015), Article ID 531789, 6 pages
About this article:

This study was conducted on 7 children who are flutists...and suffered anxiety with elevated heart rate and cold hands prior to performance. They were trained in a quick and easy 'qigong' practice which allowed them to calm the heart rate and warm the hands.

The authors suggest 'qigong' to be a 'vegetative biofeedback therapy'. That is to say that through repetition and practice combining visualisation and repetitive movements, the autonomic nervous system can be trained to alleviate symptoms related to anxiety such as elevated heart rate and impeded peripheral circulation.
