Study type: Therapeutical study (experimental study)

Experimental study on the low-intensity millimeter-wave electro-magnetic stimulation of acupuncture points. med./bio.

Published in: Acupunct Electrother Res 2000; 25 (2): 91-99

Aim of study (acc. to author)

To study the effects of the millimeter wave bioresonance therapy on acute inflammation and stressful conditions in experimental models. Licking reaction in mice as a component of the hypersensitive state evoked by subcutaneous formalin injection into the right hind paw was monitored. Different parameters of electromagnetic stimulation applied to ipsilateral acupoint St.36 were examined.

Main outcome of study (acc. to author)

It was revealed that the millimeter wave bioresonance therapy improved the condition of experimental animals, accompanying by diminution of licking reaction. Effect of 10 min irradiation was more demonstrative than 3 min. Stimulation with frequency of 61 GHz suppressed licking reaction more deeply than 43 GHz. Most beneficial effects have been found when minimal (0.1 mW/cm²) intensity of electromagnetic stimulation was applied.
