    This article describes several studies on the measurement of slow rhythms in the heart and in peripheral vasculature and their relationship to stress and relaxation. These studies are preliminary steps in an attempt to quantify stress and relaxation. Mental stress is a major, well-documented factor in the development of cardiovascular diseases; relaxation, however, is perceived as the opposite sta... View full abstract»

    For more than two millennia acupuncture has been a widely accepted method for the treatment of acute and chronic disorders in China. Now, acupuncture is becoming increasingly popular in the West and is routinely recommended for the treatment of pain and for relief from the nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy, substance dependency, and chronic disorders difficult to manage with convent...

    Lymphedema (LE) afflicts hundreds of millions people worldwide. Manual lymph drainage, a specialized form of massage therapy, is an integral component - along with compression bandaging (CB) - of combined physical therapy (CPT), an internationally recommended optimal treatment. Experimental data from a rat model of obstructive LE suggests that massage alone can reduce LE volume as effectively as C... View full abstract»

    The rhythm of each heart beat is controlled by electrical pulses. These signals coordinate and synchronize the contraction of the atria and of the ventricles. They also provide the electrical sequence of activation that causes the ventricles to contract in a coordinated manner. In heart failure, this electrical sequence of activation is distorted A new surgical treatment can now be offered as an o... View full abstract»

    Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is an ideal method to noninvasively explore the whole brain for cortical activation related to acupuncture. The results from this study demonstrate that fMRI can identify specific cortical regions associated with acupuncture stimulation. The choice of acupuncture stimulation using visual or auditory points simplifies the interpretation of the results be... View full abstract»

    In this article, the changes in the cerebral activation induced by different acupuncture stimuli were studied using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). The authors studied how the differences in the stimulus points (hand or leg, left or right) would affect cerebral activities and how differences of stimulus content (sense of pain, not getting qi, getting qi) would alter the cerebral resp...
