Outgoing-qi therapy is a special curative method of regulation of the organism of the patient with "qi" and "strength". As the viscera, tissues and life activities of the human body are all related to " qi", " qi" is the first to be regulated whenever functional or organic disorders of the organism occur.

Based on clinical experimental studies in China, a conclusion may be drawn that the degree of curative effect depends on the competence and versatility of the qigong therapist and the extent of response of the patient to outgoing-qi. In patient whose channels and points are very sensitive to outgoing-qi, miraculous results are often expected even if their conditions may be rather complicated. For those whose channels and points are not so sensitive to qi, repeated stimulation and regulation are needed to raise their sensitivity and make qi activities more vigorous and synchronized so that satisfactory effect can be, as it is often, achieved.
