dc.description.abstract Point injection as a therapeutic technique is well documented, but its [hysiological effects have not been foprmally compared with traditional acupuncture. One aim of this study was to compare the effects of te two techniques at one acupuncture point, as a step towards understanding the mode of action of point injection and validating its clinical use. A second aim was to explore whether repeated point injection at the same site might provide a way of increasing the dose of stimulation, in the hope that identifying a dose response curve wjhich could be an alternative strategy to placebo control in demonstrating the biological effects of acupuncture.
