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