CFQ Qigong  超 意 返 还 功
Scientific Research

Since 2008, a number of research studies and clinical trials have been conducted in Halifax, Nova Scotia
to measure the affect of  CFQ Qigong on fibromyalgia and chronic pain.

published in various medical journals are below:

Case Series of Multiple Health Benefits in Those Undertaking Extended Qigong Practice 
as a Complementary Self-care Practice in an Outpatient Pain Clinic

       Conclusions: This case series reveals multiple health benefits of extended qigong practice. Given that these
occurred in those who practiced the most, one of the barriers to potential health benefits achieved by qigong is
commitment to the practice. In appropriate circumstances, health care professionals can recommend qigong as a
complementary practice for successful chronic pain management.

*2016 Qigong and Chronic Pain: Three Cases of Pain Resolution, Other Health Benefits and Improved Vision with Long-term Practice of Qigong

       This is a report of the experiences of three individuals with chronic pain and multiple other health problems who undertook instruction in CFQ Qigong and went on to practice over extended periods of time (hours/day, 8-15 years). All three report resolution of their chronic pain and multiple other health problems, as well as improvements in vision, during the course of their long- term practice. Health benefits occurred progressively over time. Improvements in eyesight were gradual. These experiences indicate that long-term (CFQ) Qigong practice can transform health trajectories and individual lives in those with chronic pain.

*2015 Clinical Perspectives on Qigong and Health

*2013 Research Article: Extension Trial of Qigong for Fibromyalgia: A Quantitative and Qualitative Study

        Conclusions: Diligent practice of CFQ, a particular form of qigong, produces sustained benefits in fibromyalgia as indicated by quantitative
assessments in core domains for fibromyalgia. Qualitative comments indicate health benefits in other areas as well. Benefit is related to extent of practice.
