SATO METHOD: Unique Qigong originated in Japan (Part 9)

SATO Method is a happy method that enhances the motivation in life

Starting in 2006, experiments on the influences of SATO Method on people’s spiritual sense of values such as a view on life and death and the motivation in life were carried out.  These experiments were conducted jointly with M.D. Michio Yasukawa, Institute of Sports, Senshu Univercity and Prof. T. Nigorikawa, College of Community and Human Services, Rikkyo University, with a central focus on the latter.

These experiments revealed that those having received SATO Method treatment had elevated their motivation in life and that it is deeply related to the whole-man QOL (Quality of Life) such as improvement of QOL including spirituality.  Concerning a view of life after death, the largest number of respondents answered “believe somewhat” or “believe completely;” which represents a tendency toward enhancement of their QOL.

Shown in Figure 1 above left is the outcome of comparison of PIL test scores by sex before and after SATO Method treatment.  It is to be noted that PIL and SK stand for “purpose in life” and “SATO Kiko (Qigong)”, respectively.  In the light of such consequences, it has been recognized that SATO Method is a superior means to make people’s life worth living and bring a feeling of happiness by making an impact on their spiritual sense of values.  For more details, please refer to the following PDF document.  Effects of Qi Therapy on Spiritual Values B5

SATO Method helps control “Type A behaviors” associated with hostility and aggressiveness

Human behaviors described as being associated with hostility, aggressiveness, a sense of time urgency, and tendencies to being highly driven or competitive are called “Type A behavior pattern”  in the field of psychology.  Prof. T. Nigorikawa, College of Community and Human Services, Rikkyo University examined potential influences of SATO Method on a “sense of time urgency” that is considered, among all psychological factors, to be the cause of contemporary human’s mental issues.  Illustrated in Diagram 1 above right are comparisons of Type A scores before and after SATO Method treatment.  (Note: AH, HT, SP stand for “aggressiveness/hostility”, “hard-driving/time-urgency”, and “speed/power”, respectively.)

This study revealed that those having received SATO Method treatment were less inclined toward  Type A behaviors.  That is to say, changes of heart were caused by SATO Method; i.e. mentally leaving scope in terms of time and managing emotions like anger.  According to Prof. Nigorikawa, this fact is highly interesting beyond the reach of imagination.

William Friedman, an American cardiologist, makes the linkage between Type A behaviors and lack of spiritual sense of values.  He presumes, providing that his such views are followed, that changes in spiritual sense of values caused by SATO Method would have exerted influences on Type A behaviors.  It is difficult to explain why SATO Method makes such effect on human psychology, particularly on spiritual aspects.  Such difficulty can’t be denied.  It is, however, the case that those having undergone SATO Method treatment mostly enhanced their spiritual sense of values; e.g. they developed a feeling of euphoria, enhanced the motivation in life, and changed views on life and death.  For more details, please refer to the following PDF document.   Effect of Qi Therapy on spiritual values
