The subjects who had done exercises in qigong for over three years were in qigong group, while those who had not, in non-qigong group. Elixir field skin temperature Vessel volume chart of the lobulus auriculae, electrocardiogram and electromyogram before and after entering qigong quiescence and stopping it, were recorded. The result showed that in qigong group, after entering qigong quiescence and stopping it, the increase of the vessel volume of the lobulees acericulae had a negative phase relation with hypopalpitation, in the non-qigong group the phenomenon did not happen; elixir field skin temperature rose after entering qigong quiescence, this was markedly different from that before entering qigong quiescence, but in the non-qigong group there was no such differentiation; the electromyogram presented single electric potentials before entering qigong quiescence and after stopping quiescence, but after entering qigong quiescence it might present electric static state; single electric potentials were presented all the time in the non-qigong group. The paper suggests that entering qigong quiescence the brain is in specific qigong functional state, which may make sympathetic excitability rise. Unpersons with qigong the musculi skillet are easy to relax, and the relaxing extent increase. Their vegetative nervous and body motor functions are regulated, thereby strengthening visceral and body functions, and promoting health and treating diseases.
