We would like to acquaint you with the results of a study conducted by Korean scientists on thermal visualization of the meridian courses.
The infrared thermographic technology was used to visualize the meridian course, "energetic paths" at the human body surface from 1980s. However, the study failed as acupuncture, moxa and Laser needle stimulus.
The purpose of the study is to visualize the meridian course by the pulsed light stimulator with a mineral filter, new acupoints stimulus method.
Methods: acupoints at arms (PC6) and legs (SP6, SP4, KI3) were stimulated by the pulsed light stimulator with a mineral filter during 15 ~ 30 minutes. Two infrared cameras were used for measurement.
A total of 70 patients (male 62, female 8) and 15 healthy volunteers (male 12, female 3) were examined.
As a result, when acupoints at arms and legs were stimulated by the pulsed light stimulator with a mineral filter, the meridian-like high thermal lines were induced along the connective classic meridians after 3 minutes usually. The rising temperature is average 1.85 ± 0.52℃ (P < 0.001). Everyone can visualize the meridian-like high thermal lines by pulsed light stimuli and the Thermography software module.
