What is it about?

We developed a novel laser acupuncture model that emulates lift-thrust operation. It was shown that while PC6 is stimulated, laser acupuncture with lift-thrust operation caused a more rapid, stable, and lasting temperature rise of fingertip than that without lift-thrust operation.

Why is it important?

The new lift-thrust operation technology for laser stimulation is expected to deliver much better clinical results in the future, which will translate into tremendous progress in the entire laser acupuncture field.Our results suggest the emulation of manipulation methods such as the lift-thrust operation could be a potential direction for the future development of laser acupuncture.


The innovative results of this research have created a novel laser acupuncture operation model, which provides a potential approach for the future development of laser acupuncture in accordance with the Traditional Chinese Medicine approach.
