This study aimed to investigate the effects of acupuncture at SP6 on resting electroencephalogram (EEG), meridian electrical activity (Ryodoraku), and stress in patients with confirmed insomnia. In this single-blind, randomized clinical trial subjects (N=70) from TCM treated outpatients were randomized to receive TCM based acupuncture with manual stimulation (experimental) or sham stimulation (control) treatment. Acupuncture was applied to SP6 for 20 minutes on the spleen meridian of the foot in experimental subjects and controls received sham intervention.

Authors: Xie Y, Ma J, Wang D, Chai X, Gao C Abstract The aim of the present study was to assess the effect of electro-acupuncture (EA) stimulation on remifentanil-induced postoperative hyperalgesia (RIPH) and the possible involvement of spinal microglia suppression. A model of RIPH was established using adult male Sprague-Dawley rats by administration of remifentanil at 0.08 mg/kg intravenously for 60 min. The Huantiao and Yanglingquan acupoints were stimulated continuously by EA (2 Hz, ~1 mA) for 90 min from before paw incision to the end of remifentanil administration. Sham acupoints were stimulated by EA in the ...
