In your research, have you approached identifying qi as a particular frquency or force that would be able to be measured scientifically?
A senior scientist at the National Electro Acoustics Laboratory in Beijing, China, Lu
Yan Fang, Ph.D., discovered in the early 1980s, that the hands of qigong masters
emitted high levels of low frequency acoustical waves called secondary sound. Although
everyone generates secondary sounds, the signals generated by the qigong masters were one hundred times more powerful than the average individual, and one thousand times more powerful than those who were elderly or ill.
Using electroacoustical technology, Dr. Fang constructed an instrument that simulated this infratonic sound (eight to fourteen hertz, seventy decibels). Dr. Fang directed these massage-like, secondary sounds into hospitalized patients, and noted numerous improvements, particularly for the management of pain.
Over 1,100 human patients were studied and treated. When used on the chest or back,
the brain’s production of alpha waves is stimulated. Therapeutic benefits include pain
diminition (including migraines), increased circulatory functioning, muscular relaxation,
and the alleviation of depression.
Scientific Evidence of Qi
In the Shanghai College of Traditional Chinese Medicine a qigong master called Lin
Housheng skilled in emitting external qi from Laogong (a point on the palm where the tip of the middle finger touches when the fist is clenched) effectively treated quite a few
complicated cases. However, nobody believed his therapy as well as the external qi
emitted from his palm. The treatment was taken as sorcery or merely suggestion.
Starting in 1977, he sought an effective test to prove the existence of external qi. Later,
he met Ms. Gu Hansen, a scientist working in the Shanghai Institute of Atomic Nucleus,
the Chinese Academy of Sciences. She was interested in research on amplifiers of
micro-signals and also in life sciences. They collaborated on testing the existence of qi
with modern scientific instruments.
The following are the experiments:
- Two close-range infrared surveyors were designed. The surveyors directing to the right Laogong of Lin Housheng received the infrared radiation at a distance of 1.2 cm from its receiving transducer when he emitted his qi. When qigong was well performed, the infrared modulation depth was as high as SO'YO with a low frequency of 0.05 per
second; but when Lin Housheng held his qi, the infrared modulation depth was less than
10% with a high frequency of 0.3 per second.
By the end of qi emission, the modulation depth was round 30% with a frequency of 0.17 per second. The results revealed that the infrared radiation of the qigong master was specific, different from that of ordinary people whose modulation depth was less than 10%.
- With the aid of the electric charge detector, it was found that Laogong was full of
electrostatic charge when Lin Housheng emitted qi. The polarity changed along with the
change of physiological status. When Lin Housheng felt comfortable, there was an
increase of negative charge and when he held the qi, there was an increase of positive
charge. This suggested that the bioelectricity emitted by a well-trained qigong master
could rearrange the doublets (bipolar particles) of living substance at the acupoint area
from randomness to a specific order.
- It was detected that the electric resistance at Neiguan (a point on the anterior aspect
of the forearm between the two tendons, 2 cun above the transverse crease of the wrist) was drastically reduced when qigong was practiced. According to the resonance theory, this phenomenon can be attributed to the electric resonance at the site where the tissue contains a kind of structural substance with magnetic action, most probably nickel protein (protein combined with nickel).
With the aid of modern scientific instruments, they carried out the preliminary determination of qi and concluded that the external qi in qigong was composed of infrared radiation modulated at a low frequency and that the qigong master emitted infrared electromagnetic waves. For the first time the existence of qi was proved.
In May 1978 their paper entitled "The Preliminary Experimental Results of Investigation
on the Material Basis of Qigong Therapy" was published in the first issue of Zi Ran Za
Zhi (Journal of Nature) in Shanghai. These results evoked worldwide reaction.
If anyone has ever given or received reiki (very similar to qi gong) before, they will know that this video is no fake. You can teach yourself to gather and release this energy to heal people and just about anything else. I was so impressed by the art I was trained in it myself. It can do truly amazing things for people and anybody can do it.
Because some people will use in in place of tried and true medical treatment.
These things always turn out to be tricks of some kind. If the original video's subject was authentic, I would think that the military would have him cooped up in a lab for the rest of his life in an attempt to mimic the ability for their soldiers.
The Heisenberg uncertainty principle is also frequently confused with the "observer effect". The uncertainty principle actually describes how precisely we may measure the position and momentum of a particle at the same time — if we increase the precision in measuring one quantity, we are forced to lose precision in measuring the other. Thus, the uncertainty principle deals with measurement, and not observation. The idea that the Uncertainty Principle is caused by disturbance (and hence by observation) is not considered to be valid by some, although it was extant in the early years of quantum mechanics, and is often repeated in popular treatments.
Lastly, I find it sad that there are people like yourselves who believe that this stuff is the real deal. Why is it sad? Because some people will use in in place of tried and true medical treatment. If that werent the case then this would be just another entertaining snake oil salesman.

I have this power too, except that I cant do it if any one is looking just like a qigong master, but mine shoots from my happy sack and I'm a little bit shy!
