Studies have been made by Tsukuba University on the sympathomimetic reaction by various stimulus such as heat, acupuncture, moxibustion and pressure. We performed stimulus with acupuncture anesthesia method on 10 healthy adult men to determine the effect of acupuncture stimulus.
They were given 3 types of stimulus to evaluate the effect of acupuncture stimulus on blood pressure and post stimulus and given a T-test among these stimulus. We made use of 8 points as stimulus points: right and left LI-4, HC-6, SP-6 and ST-6.
1; In the electro-acupuncture stimulus for 30 minutes with 1Hz, systolic pressure decreased significantly, whereas diastolic pressure increased.
2; In the situ stimulus for 30 minutes, it was found that, in average, systolic pressure was decreased and diastolic pressure was increased but they showed no significant difference. Pulse pressure was significantly decreased.
3; In the spotted skin electro stimulus for 30 minutes with 1Hz, systolic pressure decreased significantly, whereas diastolic pressure showed no variation as well as the control group.
It is supposed that acupuncture stimulus and electro stimulus made for peripheral vessel contraction as well as palmus restrain, whereas the spotted skin electro stimulus made for palmus restrain.
