The purpose of the current paper is to\ud encourage research into all areas of Tai Chi\ud and cancer survivorship. Tai Chi is defined\ud here as a combination of Chinese philosophy,\ud martial and healing arts. Tai Chi is a form of\ud physical activity that is carried out at either\ud a light or moderate intensity. The practice\ud of Tai Chi integrates mental concentration\ud and breathing control [1,2]. We first discuss\ud the role of light physical activity in cancer\ud survivorship and then narrow our focus to\ud Tai Chi per se.
