Function changes of autonomic nervous system of 19 qigongers in 'Qigong Tiaoxi' were assessed with HRV analysis. HRV measurements were made by two methods (time domain and frequency domain). The results showed increased sympathetic nerve activation, LF, LF/HF increased, but RR no significant differences were found in 'Qigong Tiaoxi'.

The results suggest that functional changes of autonomic nervous system of 'Qigong Tiaoxi' is marked by measurable moments of altered heart rates.
