This study included 22 participants who wore sticker-type electrodes attached on three different acupoints on different body regions: CV17 (chest), CV23 (chin), and left PC6 (arm). Participants evaluated de qi sensations after they expected electrical stimulation on those points in random order without actual stimulation. All stimuli were presented with corresponding visual information of the stimulation sites. The control condition included the same visual information but outside the body. The expectations of cutaneous electrical stimuli without actual stimulation on three acupoints resulted in greater de qi sensation com...

DiscussionThe results of this trial will allow us to compare the changes of acupuncture therapeutic effect at three time points (the baseline vs. the end of treatment vs. the end of follow-up), and investigate the potential central mechanism of the long-lasting effect influenced by acupuncture withdeqi. This trial aims to re-identify the long-lasting effect of acupuncture and investigate its central mechanism, and to further explore the central influence ofdeqi sensation on the long-lasting effect.Trial registrationChinese Clinical Trial Registry, IDF:ChiCTR-IOR-15006523.

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To observe the effect of electroacupuncture (EA) at ST36 on the intestinal mucosal mechanical barrier and expression of the tight junction (TJ) protein, occludin, in a rat model of sepsis. METHODS: 60 male Wistar rats were randomly divided into six groups (n=10 rats each): Control, Control+EA, CLP (caecal ligation and puncture), CLP+EA, CLP+Sham-EA, and Sham-CLP. Rats of the CLP, CLP+EA and CLP+Sham-EA groups underwent CLP modeling of sepsis; those in the Sham-CLP underwent sham surgery and those in the Control and Control+EA groups remained unoperated. Rats in the CLP+EA and Control+EA gr...

Abstract Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic, systemic autoimmune inflammatory and debilitating disease that involves the systemic imbalance of the immune network. Previous studies have shown that acupuncture can help treat RA. However, its specific mechanisms are not fully understood. Thus, the present study was designed to clarify the mechanisms of acupuncture acted on RA via immune network modulation using complete Freund's adjuvant (CFA)-induced arthritic rats. Results revealed that manual acupuncture (MA) could alleviate the inflammation and pain of infected joints. Moreover, MA could effectively stimulate...

Conclusions: Acupuncture and moxibustion on HT 4 increased the electrical sensitivity, decreased the stimulus intensity to achieve the maximum amplitude, and avoided a significant increase in latency and decrease in reaction velocity in two consecutive electrical stimulations.Integr Med Int 2018;4:198 –207

(Natural News) A study in Medical Acupuncture has revealed the traditional Chinese practice of acupuncture can relieve the symptoms of traumatic brain injury (TBI). In particular, researchers evaluated auricular acupuncture (AA) and traditional acupuncture (TCA) to determine whether it was effective in treating symptoms of chronic headaches, in comparison to usual care (UC) treatments provided by healthcare professionals....
