Quantitative analyses of blood composition were performed as part of a scheme for measuring of qigong. This scheme included simultaneous polygraph measurements and psychological tests.

The subjects used in the study were a qigong master (a 32-year-old Chinese) and a receiver (a 32-year-old Japanese). The blood of both subjects were analyzed before and after qi-transmissions. The results showed a remarkable increase in the white blood cell count for the qigong master, while there was no statistically significant change observed for the receiver.
