Researchers from the School of Acupuncture and Moxibustion, Beijing University of Chinese Medicine, the Tasly Microcirculation Research Center, Peking University Health Science Center, the  Department of Anatomy, School of Basic Medical Sciences, Peking University, and the Department of Integration of Chinese and Western Medicine, School of Basic Medical Sciences, Peking University, China, have shown that long term use of ElectroAcupuncture on two key acupuncture points does have a significant effect on the brain.

The researchers selected two key acupuncture points – proven previously, through practice, to have effects on the relief of hypertension – points known as the bai huì (DU20) and zú san li (ST36) points.

The researchers say that they did try other points, such as the yanglingquan (GB34), hegu (LI4), quchi (LI11) and neiguan (PC6) points, but found that DU20 and ST36 gave the best results.

The research, published in the Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine journal showed that the long-term ElectroAcupuncture stimulation at DU20 and ST36 lead to a number of significant improvements in health – including relief of hypertension, an increase in the number of opening micro-vessels and improvement in cerebral blood flow, as well as the attenuation of neuron injury, and restoration of cognitive impairment.
