A thermographic camera was used on healthy test subjects to determine the effects of stimulation of a specific acupuncture point on the circulatory status of the intended target area.

The thermographic images were obtained before, during and after the application of needles using a neutral sticking technique. Needles were left in place for 20 minutes.
