Shaolin Neigong (internal Qigong) of tuina exercise is a distinctive part of Neigong tuina. Since the 1980s, domestic basic study on Shaolin Neigong has mainly focused on its physiologic effects, and has preliminarily proved that Shaolin Neigong can enhance the aerobic capacity, cardio-pulmonary function, and muscle strength of human body. By summarizing the literatures studying the effects of Shaolin Neigong on respiratory, circulatory, locomotor and nervous systems, this article was to understand the modern research, inheritance and protection of Shaolin Neigong. The results indicate that the modern research on Shaolin Neigong is relatively slow. Continuous development, continuity and innovation in basic research, teaching and clinical practices are required, to enhance the general and therapeutic level of tuina exercises and tuina science of traditional Chinese medicine.
