Tai Chi and Qigong have a positive effect on patients with cardiovascular diseases - namely on physiological and biochemical parameters as well as physical functionality, quality of life and depression. This is the result of a meta-analysis from China.

The Chinese scientists evaluated 35 randomized trials that looked at patients with cardiovascular disease (15 studies), stroke (7 studies), arterial and peripheral vascular disease, and hypertension (13 studies).
