lBVA Interactive Brain Wave Analysis an interactive animated biofeedback computerized analysis of EEG brain waves. The mind/body, nervous system/immune system connection is well documented in Psychoneuroimmunology.
In the work of Dr. Stephen Kong, China's leading authority on the IBVA: Alpha waves (8-12 Hz) are associated with a healing state of mind; Beta waves (12-30Hz) correspond to high level brain activity, e.g., as with stress and/or concentration; and Theta waves (4-8Hz) increase with higher level immune system function
In a series of over 20 subjects, we have found that externally applied Qi immediately decreases beta waves, and simultaneously increases alpha and theta waves. A high Qi state induced by active Qigong practice likewise immediately decreases beta waves, and simultaneously increases alpha and theta waves. The administration of other efficacious treatment, e.g., Life Balances electrolyte solutions, and/or thermotherapy likewise decreases beta waves and simultaneously increase alpha and theta waves.
The lBVA can thus be used as a powerful Qigong assessment and learning tool for Treatment efficacy, Biofeedback Stress Reduction & Relaxation, Superlearning, Mind Control, and more. See with your own eyes whether your treatment is effective, and whether you are truly in a Qi state.
