Qigong Research

In this section, we share weblinks and reprints of papers of scientific research that has been conducted into the nature of qigong. Articles cover topics such as qigong and health, medical qigong treatment, scientific measurement of qi, and theoretical foundation.

This page is meant to serve as a beginning to stimulate the practitioner to seek out his or her own research and understanding. Work with a simple search engine such as google.com, references within the recommended books and journals, and research at your local library or University will help you find more information.
