The definition of health is very important for medical doctors, scientists and persons who have several kinds of diseases. We used the term defined by WHO. In oriental world it is defined as harmonized state of six solid and six hollow organs. It can be diagnosed by several diagnostic methods including pulse palpation [1]. The pulse palpation method has been applied without scientific evidence for more than 2000 years. 

Relieving Migraine Headache by Regulating Cerebral Blood Flow with Koryo Hand Therapy

Koryo Hand Therapy (KHT) treatment methods in 100 patients with migraine revealed positive relationship (positive feedback) between radial and vertebral artery, and a negative relationship between radial or vertebral and carotid arteries.

Effect of Acupuncture on Blood Flow Velocity and Volume in Common Carotid and Vertebral Arteries in Migraine Patients

To study blood flow in extracranial arteries with a new protocol of flow quantification with fast-low angle shot after performing Korean Hand Acupuncture therapy on migraine patients, to find out if acupuncture manipulations can restore the balance, thereby reducing various symptoms of migraine.

Useful Method To Confirm Tender Points Of Primary Headache: Corresponding Points Of Koryo Hand Acupuncture Therapy

For diagnosis and treatment of primary headache objectively and effectively, it can save the time to decide and to confirm location during physical examination if corresponding points of KHT are applied.

The results suggest that hand acupuncture therapy is effective for subjective sleep improvement only, not polysomnographical sleep indices and cerebral blood flow.

What is Evidence-Based Acupuncture? A Comparative Review of Traditional Acupuncture and Korean Hand Acupuncture Therapy

This review highlights the importance of well-interpreted principles and theories that could be possible solutions for many issues that arise when integrating acupuncture into practice and research.

Laser Acupuncture as a Pain Relief Modality Lasers provide a simple, and effective, non-invasive alternative to needle acupuncture in treating musculoskeletal pain.

This article will review some of the research studies involving laserpuncture, and discuss Laserpuncture treatment applications utilizing body acupoints, auriculotherapy points, and Korean Hand Therapy points.



Ultrasound-monitored effects of acupuncture on brain and eye.

A new transcranial Doppler sonography arrangement was used to monitor blood flow profiles in the supratrochlear and middle cerebral arteries simultaneously and continuously, and acupuncture-induced effects were reproducible even though both arteries originate from the same major vessel.

Ultrasound-controlled Acupuncture

The study describes a new construction and first measurements of simultaneous an d continuous transcranial Doppler sonographic monitoring of the supratrochlear a nd middle cerebral arteries in two

Effects of acupuncture on the oxygenation of cerebral tissue.

Monitoring of regional cerebral oxygen saturation showed small increases in r.

Computer-controlled acupuncture. Quantification and separation of specific effects.

Selective evidence of a specific effect of acupuncture on the brain and the eye using a Doppler ultrasound technique is provided to produce specific, reproducible quantifiable effects on blood flow velocity in arteries to the head and eye.

Effects of acupuncture at fengchi point (GB 20) on cerebral blood flow.

Blood velocity in the vertebral artery and the basilar artery was observed before and after acupuncture at Fengchi point (GB 20) in 97 patients by transcranial Doppler ultrasonic detecting. The

Noninvasive transcranial Doppler ultrasound recording of flow velocity in basal cerebral arteries.

This transcranial Doppler method is of particular value for the detection of vasospasm following subarachnoid hemorrhage and for evaluating the cerebral circulation in occlusive disease of the carotid and vertebral arteries.

Robotic transcranial Doppler sonography probes and acupuncture.

Quantitative determination of the physiological effects during acupuncture can lead to a better acceptance of this unconventional complementary medical method.

Specific Effects of Laserpuncture on the Cerebral Circulation

The results indicate that the brain plays a key intermediate role in acupuncture, however, brain activity of itself does not explain anything about the healing power of acupuncture.
