This study was undertaken to examine the effects of externally applied Qigong vital energy at the cellular level, using scientific methods. M. Matsumoto, who is the president of Jyoyuin Laboratories (a Traditional Chinese Medicine clinic located in Yamato Koriyama City, Nara Prefecture, Japan), has been applying his unique therapy using Qigong vital energy to treat various diseases and has obtained favorable results. Our experiment was designed to clarify the effects of Qigong vital energy on neutrophils isolated from human peripheral blood. The experiment demonstrated that Qigong vital energy affects the signal transduction system of neutrophils and enhances their phagocytic activity.
