External Qigong is used as a method for medical care in China. Qigong anesthesia is well known in China and is thought to be a type of external Qigong. But unfortunately, the Qigong anesthesia mechanism is not known outside of China. The authors had a chance to perform an experiment in Japan. This report is about physiological measurements of Qigong anesthesia. It is interesting what kind of physiological changes occur in a Qigong master and a patient in Qigong anesthesia and conventional external Qigong. From these view points, this report shows a part of the mechanism of Qigong anesthesia.
