At a glance, the static Qigong Xiao Zhou Tian looks similar to the Zen
in style. But it is said, in this type of Qigong, the Qi circulation
from the Du channel to the Ren channel , is most important. But this
cannot be seen. This report gives the results of scientific
measurements on Xiao Zhou Tian. From our results, the Qigong master's
respiration during Xiao Zhou Tian has a very important role and we
found that the Qi circulation is strongly related to his respiration.
It is understood that when alpha wave patterns in the EEG topograph are connected from the back to the front of his head at around maximum of his abdominal respiration, this is one revolution of Qi. Qi moves from his Du channel to the Ren channel. The rhythm of heart rate and voltage of R point of ECG data were almost diminished compared to that before Qigong. On the other hand, the minimum voltage of the photo-plethysmogram wave increased tremendously.
