forges a direct link between the conscious mind and the immune system, a
link already acknowledged though not well understood in Western
medicine as 'psychoneuroimmunology'. Master Luo Teh Hsiou cites the
'harmony of the nervous and endocrine systems' as the very essence of
Qigong practice, and modern medical science has clearly established a
close biofeedback connection between neurochemicals and hormones.
Stress and excitement activate the sympathetic circuit of the autonomous
nervous system, which triggers release of adrenalin, cortisol, and
other hormones. These hormones then further reinforce sympathetic
nervous response by biofeedback, setting up a continuous cycle of
depletion and exhaustion. Qigong, from moving exercises to still,
counteracts the exhausting stress and excitement of daily life by
turning on the calming parasympathetic circuit of the autonomous nervous
system, which releases neurochemicals that stimulate secretions of
hormones with healing, relaxing, and restorative properties. These
hormones in turn sustain secretions of parasympathetic neurochemicals by
biofeedback, establishing a cycle of repair and rejuvenation.
