A recent study confirms that Qi Gong helps to reduce cases of high blood pressure in patients with pre-hypertension and mild hypertension.

Qi Gong is a type of Chinese movement art used to heal the body. Qi Gong encompasses many styles and forms within each style, many of which are traditionally used to benefit specific bodily systems. The researchers concluded that Qi Gong is safe and has a “positive effect on blood pressure and health status in pre and mild hypertension patients.” Based on these findings, the researchers suggest additional research to further explore the medical benefits of Qi Gong with a larger sample size of participants.

A total of 40 participants were randomized into a control group and a Qi Gong group. The Qi Gong group practiced the forms for a total of 5 times per week for a total of 8 weeks. Blood pressure reductions occurred in the Qi Gong group and not in the control group. Systolic blood pressure reduced significantly. Diastolic blood pressure was unaffected.Qi Gong Lowers Blood Pressure

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is comprised of five major branches: movement arts, acupuncture, herbal medicine, dietetics, bone medicine. Qi Gong and other arts such as Tai Chi are part of the movement arts division of TCM including other forms of breathing and meditation exercises. Most forms of Qi Gong involve meditation, synchronous breathing and physical exercise.
