There are numerous changes in the physiology of subjects performing qigong. It is supposed that special mental states influence the physiology. In this work we compare physiological parameters (Electric Dynamic Analysis, respiration rate, blood flow, etc.) of a qigong phase and a rest phase. The results is demonstrate physiology that happened immediately after the transition from rest phase to qigong phase of the subject. We found the subject has an ability to control body functions which cannot be controlled consciously by untrained people, but which can be controlled by subjects proficient in qigong.
