Objective To analyze the problems of existing Health Qigong research literature statistical methods, and the use of statistical ideas and methods on how qigong research. Materials and methods four sets of exercises of Health Qigong practices and comparable, therefore, from the journals database search out the the Health Qigong papers Total 48 herein includes the clinical, physiological and psychological research The papers are inseparable from the experimental study, the greater the need for statistical applications, and ultimately get the papers 22 to 30. Therefore, this study is the application of statistical methods to explore the 22 papers in statistical issues, and to explore the possible statistical methods, as well as a reference method has the Qigong features experimental mode. Research analysis and discussion is found in many papers of Health Qigong doubts, not from the number of initial research object specification, and thus is not reasonable to set up a randomized control group, and did not consider the comparability between the group and the group; then based on the nature of the research data select the appropriate statistical analysis of the quantitative or qualitative, which is also found to some studies, often overlooked t-test and F-test (ANOVA) using the prerequisite, and some studies have not been clear account of the use of statistical analysis methods. Expression in the final statistical results, a lot of the statistic is not displayed, or misunderstood the smaller the P value, the greater the difference between the groups incomplete charts and tables set forth, which highlights the reasonable application of statistical processing very important. In addition, you can borrow the ideas and methods of evidence-based medicine, or the introduction of higher statistically, such as multivariate analysis of technology and other methods; also guiding principle of \qigong to improve and enhance the development of modern scientific research. Research Conclusion and Outlook clarify the reasonable application of statistical principles, such as setting a reasonable number of samples, set the appropriate control group, the use of appropriate statistical methods, as well as a clear expression of statistical analysis, the Health Qigong makes the research more standardized, thereby increasing the reliability of the literature. It may also be used the embodies the Qigong Features \Reference values ??clues. Because this study only discuss 22 papers related to the Health Qigong small number of its literature, only shows that the problem on one of most statistical applications. Recommendations for future research, and is widely collected at home and abroad all Qigong literature to analyze, or change or innovation in line with the medical qigong research methods, experimental design and experimental control, and thus more in-depth study to explore the field of medical qigong, so Qigong conducive to the general public, and to improve the quality of life of the people.
