Abstract

The purpose of this study was to compare die effect of the Sparrow Pecking (SP) technique with that of the In-Situ (IS) technique of acupuncture on vibration-induced finger flexion reflex (VFR). Subjects were 30 healthy adults. VFR, flexion movement of the vibrated finger, was induced by vibrating the volar side of the middle finger tip. The acupuncture point was the right Hoku point. Both techniques of acupuncture inhibited VFR in the ipsilateral and contralateral sides, but inhibition with SP was significantly greater than that with IS (percentage control force of VFR, mean +/- SD: with SP right, 62.1 +/- 24.6%, left, 60.6 +/- 27.9%, with IS right, 74.9 +/- 26.6%, left, 78.1 +/- 29.5 %, P<0.0005). The results suggest that SP suppresses facilitation of VFR in the reflex arcs more than IS does.
