AbstractBACKGROUND: Our previous studies showed Qigong exercise may reduce fatigue level of patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). Sleep disturbance is a common complaint in CFS. However, few studies investigated it. Objectives: Effects of Qigong exercise on sleep quality and fatigue were assessed. The correlations between changes of sleep quality and fatigue were assessed as well as dosage of Qigong practice. METHODS: A RCT was conducted with Qigong (n = 75) and control (n = 75) groups. 16 sessions (twice a week for 8 weeks) of Baduanjin Qigong of 1.5 hours each was delivered. Fatigue was measured by Chalder's fatigue and sleep quality was measured by Pittsburgh sleep quality index (PSQI) at baseline (T0), post-intervention (T1) and 3-month post-intervention (T2). The interaction effect of group and time in sleep quality and fatigue between two groups ...
