Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

The purpose of this study was to explore the impact of Ellie’s Meditative Movements (EMM) on persons with chronic conditions. The quasi-experimental study utilized a pretest, posttest, and follow-up design. Twenty-four participants completed the intervention. Results showed significant impact on symptoms of anxiety, depression, fatigue, emotional and functional well-being, and quality of life. EMM may contribute to improved symptom management and quality of life for persons with chronic conditions.
