Abstract: Reviews systematically existing meta-analyses of the effects of meditative movement therapies (yoga, tai chi and qigong) on health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in adults. In the 10 meta-analyses identified, the majority of results (79%) favored statistically significant improvements in HRQoL, with standardized mean differences between 0.18 and 2.28 and a number needed to treat varying between 2 and 10. Concludes that meditative movement therapies may improve HRQoL in adults with selected conditions, yet argues that a need exists for a large, more inclusive meta-analysis.
