37 patients of hypertension divided into two groups were studied with Mode-UA 251 Printing/Auto Inflation Electronic Digital Blood Pressure and Pulse Meter and a Mode—TP—02 multipoint making circular test thermometer in this paper. The results showed that

1. The SBP, DBP and HR of the first qigong group who did the exercise successfully were significantly improving, respectively.

2. The second qigong group had some problems. They thought that they could open their 'third eye”, “emit qi”, and develop natural gifts. So their SBP, DBP and HR were worse than before.

3. The paper suggests that patients of hypertension must be careful when they exercise qigong. They should think of concentrating their mind at the lower dantian.
