AbstractThe book chapter summaries our previous studies to evaluate Qigong as a complementary and alternative therapy for chronic fatigue syndrome (N=287). Findings suggested that Qigong reduced fatigue and depressive symptoms, and improved telomerase activity. A significant dose-response relation was found. An effective practice regimen was identified: at least 3 times a week, 30+ minutes per session. The application of Qigong as a self-management skill in brain health is also discussed.
