Effective Responses to Qigong
April 27, 2013 - Single sessions of Qigong have been associated with increased positive affect/emotional benefits. A study by Orebro University in Sweden aimed to refine the present understanding by using newly developed research methodologies.

Therefore, effective reactions were studied in a group performing Qigong through pre-, during, and post-assessments using a modified version of the short Swedish Core Affect Scale complemented with open-ended questions.

Impact was measured on a group and individual level. The results showed a shift during Qigong toward increased pleasant activated-and-deactivated effect in the group of 46 women who regularly practice Qigong. Inter-individual responses displayed positive affective responses, which also increased as the bout proceeded for the majority of practitioners.

Acknowledging some limitations, these findings have practical implications for the enhancement of positive effect and subjective well-being.

The study is published in April 2013 by Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies.
