Some recent research using electrodermal measurements for monitoring the effects of qigong practice and TCM therapy will be discussed. The electrodermal measurements provide information about energy imbalances among the meridians and corresponding functions of the body and how these imbalances are normalized by qigong and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) theeerapy. The electrodermal techniques and results of research will be discussed and include Electroacupuncture According to Voll, the Ryoddoraku (Japanese) and the Human Meridian Tester (Chinese). The electrodermal results show that (1) qigong can improve the energy balance in the body and (2) diagnosis of embalances and TCM therapy agree with TCM diagnosis and patient complaints.
