BEAM is a new technology which is one of the computer's medical applications.
In order to measure and compare the pre-and post therapeutic effect of qigong and Gua Sha in 30 headache patients, JY-660 BEAM was applied by our hospital. The value of power of pretreatment was 5-10 grades, while the posttreatment was lower than 5 grades.
30 cases consisted of 10 males and 20 females with an average age of 36.5 years old (21-52). The results showed that for diagnosing headache (cerebrovascular type),the positive rate of BEAM was(83.02% markedly higher than that of synchronizing EEG (52.83%).
Due to different attacking type, the degree of damage of the brain was also different. Generally, the BEAM power value of those patients suffering from the severe type, medium-type and mild-type headache were 5-10 grades, 4-7 grades and 3-5 grades respectively.
By three times of qigong and Gua Sha, the value of power of those severe-type patients could reduce to 7 grades, while the medium type patients were lower than 5 grades, moreover, the mild-type patients were normal.
