Summary

​This study assessed the effects of Qi therapy (QT) on premenstrual symptoms in women withpremenstrual syndrome (PMS). Forty-six college women were randomly allocated to receive QT(QT group: n=23) or complete diary of PMS (control group: n=22, 1 was dropped out). Theexperimental group receives 12 minutes Qi therapy for 5 times (7, 4, 1 day before and 7, 14 dayafter menstruation), and control group relaxed in the same procedure with experimental group.We measured pain, depression and anxiety level with visual analogue scale (VAS) to investigateparticipants responses. There were significant reductions on pain, depression and anxiety in QTgroup compared with control. These findings suggest that Qi therapy may have a role in helpingthe women with PMS to cope with their pain, depression and anxiety symptoms.
