Tai Chi, or T’ai Chi Ch’uan, is also called “moving meditation.” It’s considered a gentle form of exercise and a way to relax your body and reduce stress.

While it’s a Chinese practice that dates back to the 13th century or earlier, it’s become very common in the U.S. It’s widely recommended for people with health conditions that limit movement or energy.

Growing bodies of scientific evidence suggest that tai chi may be a beneficial form of exercise for people with fibromyalgia (FMS) or chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS or ME/CFS).

Reviews of medical literature point to consistently positive results; however, they also point out frequent flaws in the methodology of the studies, meaning that they can’t be considered high profile. So for now, we can’t say for sure whether it’s safe and effective for these conditions.
