Brainwaves Before and After Qigong Practice

Keith Kirts, Book Author

Qigong means the practice of awakening Qi energy and exchanging one's Qi with the earth and the universe. The practice is a simbiotic energy exchange between the universe, earth, universe, heart, body, mind, soul and spirit. Brainwaves change relative to the degree of harmony between these aspects. The more harmonious the synergy is between the aspects, the more coherence there is in the brain. Since the brain is a control center for the body, tuning the brain tunes the body to entrain to the Qii of the cosmos.

Los Angeles book author, Keith Kirts whose books provide a fun-filled raunchy view into the subculture of Southern California life is a serious Qigong practioner. His books are available through Amazon.com. Keith agreed to have his brainwave activity analyzed before doing Qigong and after doing Qigong in order to determine what kind of changes occur in the brainwaves after doing the practice.


Brainwaves Before Qi Gong

Before starting the Qigong practice, Keith's brainwave activity was monitored. The frequencies are accelerted, indicating high beta brainwave activity.. Amplitudes of the brain's waveform signals are also high, as indicated by the high waveform peaks on the graph. When brainwaves are signaling in high beta, mental activity is not focused and thoughts are cluttering the mental plane. High beta is also an indicator of stress in the body.


Brainwaves After Qi Gong

After practicing Qigong, brainwave frequencies have lowered, and amplitudes of the waveforms have decreased. These changes in brainwave activity indicate that the neural activity has become more calm, thus signaling with increased alpha and theta brainwaves, based on standard EEG analysis of the neural activity. One could speculate that Keith's attention became more focused with greater clarity of thought. Qigong quiets the mind.
