Description: Results of a research study concludes that Tibetan yoga stress-reduction programs tailored to the cancer setting help patients cope with the effects of treatment and improve their quality of life. Techniques include regulated breathing, visual imagery, and meditation as well as various postures. The authors examined the effects of the Tibetan yoga practices of Tsalung (rtsa rlung) and Trülkhor ('khrul 'khor), which incorporate controlled breathing and visualization, mindfulness techniques, and low-impact postures in patients with lymphoma. They conclude that Tibetan yoga significantly improves sleep in lymphoma patients. However, there were no other significant effects for the outcomes the study measured.
