Thirty cases of primary hypertension have been treated by qigong techniques as the first medical choice. Population is composed of 20 males and 10 females aging from 30 to 50 years. Measurement of electrical imbalance has been performed by a Decoder 2000, a sophisticated apparatus based on a pulse generation of 10 Hz with low intensity of current. This instrument is able to investigate the colloidal state of tissues in order to obtain a valuation of the reaction of body organs concerning oxygen uptake of peripheral tissues. Qigong exercise has been performed to obtain a direct control of vascular resistance, monitoring blood pressure values two times a week at the same hour. First data are suggestive of a good response in terms of blood pressure control.
