Influence of akupoints of principal meridians on a skeletal musculation of the person

Clinical Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine 12/2003; 4(4):179-190. DOI: 10.1016/j.caom.2003.12.001


The author asserts, that each point of Principal meridian renders differential influence on a skeletal musculation. Particularly on each muscle renders direct influence four points, though there are also exceptions. Whereas the quantity of muscles size constant, occurs an opportunity to prognosticate opening new points. The creation of the completed system of active points of a body will enable to lead Qi in any site of a skeletal musculation of the person, and system will allow to describe interrelation between akupoints and skeletal muscles. And though the belonging of points to a concrete meridian is defined by their direct influence on an internal body usually appropriate to the name of a meridian. Nevertheless, this difficult process of identification is easier for beginning from interrelation akupoints and skeletal muscles. The detailed description of influence of each concrete point on sites of skeletal muscles, internal bodies, veins, arteries will frame an opportunity to consider very exact influence of each point on all organism as a whole. On an example of the Lung meridian will are considered general principles of interaction between akupoints and skeletal musculation. Muscularly––tendon meridians described in the ancient medical treatises to the given work have no any attitude.

    • "To compare the treatment effects under identical conditions , we selected vertical insertion of the manual acupuncture needle. The manual acupuncture applied at the acupoints of the Liver (LR) meridian had a treatment effect on muscular skeletal disorders [20]. Considering the inconvenience of applying the electrode and inserting the manual acupuncture needle, we selected the rectus femoris , which is close to the LR meridian, as the induction location for generating muscle fatigue.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this study was to investigate a new method of manual acupuncture that used a magnetic field to stimulate only one acupoint vertically. We developed an 8-channel electromagnetic-acupuncture (EMA) system that uses a solenoid-type electrode to insert the manual acupuncture needle into a hole in an electrode. We suggested to the use of a manual acupuncture needle as magnetic induction part in order to penetrate vertically and deeply into tissues. In order to confirm the usefulness of EMA, we investigated the effects of treatment on muscle fatigue after strenuous knee extension/flexion exercises had been performed by three groups: the non-stimulation, the manual acupuncture, and the EMA groups. Electromyograms showed that the median frequency (MF) in the EMA group had rapidly recovered after 4 minutes (p=0.608), but that the peak torque had not recovered to the normal state (p<0.05). Thus, we confirmed that compared with manual acupuncture, EMA led to better recovery from muscle fatigue.

    ABSTRACT: Neuropathic pain is a potentially disabling chronic condition whose management in conventional medicine is limited to the use of analgesics and, in some cases, surgical procedures in order to reduce the symptom—with no guarantee whatsoever of effectiveness in clinical improvement. Nowadays, the use of acupuncture for pain management—which has been demonstrated by its history and by clinical trials—is becoming increasingly used to control painful chronic conditions, even by anesthesiologists themselves. In the process of improving therapeutic capabilities of this science, the use of modern technology has been incorporated to ancient treatments, such as the laser, which is also used in various treatments within the allopathic medicine, and which now makes its way into Chinese Medicine as a painless and effective device for treating patients and their health disorders.
