Abstract
Objectives : The purpose of this study was to identify the effect of the tonification & sedation manipulation for LI4 and KI7 on lacking of sweating in cold environment.

Methods: The participants were divided into 3 groups as intact group without acupuncture, acupuncture group inserting and twisting with LI4 tonificaton and KI7 sedation method(LI4-tonify ? KI7-purge) and acupuncture group inserting and twisting with LI4 sedation and KI7 tonificaton method(LI4-purge ? KI7-tonify). We obtained baseline data at cold condition with the temperature 14±1℃. After making the participant staying in cold condition for 10 minute, we measured sweating rate in skin surface, body temperature, oxygen saturation, pulse rate, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, deoxy-Hb and oxy-Hb in subcutaneous.

Results : After acupuncture in cold environment, the sweating rate in skin surface significantly decreased in KI7-purge ? LI4-tonify group comparing the intact groups. The body temperature significantly increased in LI4-tonify ? KI7-purge and LI4-purge ? KI7-tonify groups comparing the intact group. The oxygen saturation significantly increased in LI4-tonify ? KI7-purge group comparing the intact group.

Conclusions : These findings indicated that LI4 tonificaton and KI7 sedation method(LI4-tonify ? KI7-purge) could be effective for production of sweating in cold condition.
