Qigong, Chinese Movement Exercise, May Help Control Cocaine Craving
The Chinese movement exercise known as qigong may help control cocaine craving early in recovery, a new study suggests.
The study included 101 cocaine-dependent subjects in residential substance abuse treatment, who received either a real external qigong treatment (EQT), or a sham treatment. According to the researchers, “EQT is a form of energy medicine in which a trained EQT healer directs qi (bioenergy) and yi (healing intention) to a patient to help remove qi blockage and achieve inner balance.”
