077Acupuncture and related interventions for smoking cessation.White, A. R., H. Rampes, et al.SMOKING • There is no consistent, bias-free evidence that acupuncture, acupressure, laser therapy or electrostimulation are effective for smoking cessation, but lack of evidence and methodological problems mean that no firm conclusions can be drawn. Further, well designed research into acupuncture, acupressure and laser stimulation is justified since these are popular interventions and safe when correctly applied, though these interventions alone are likely to be less effective than evidence-based interventions.Cochrane Database Syst Rev(1): CD000009. 20112011A vérifierAbstract

085Effect of acupuncture stimulation of the auricular sympathetic point on evoked sudomotor response.Young MF, McCarthy PW.NERVOUS SYSTEM AND PSYCHISM • Stimulation of the sympathetic AA point significantly decreased the stimulus-evoked EDR when compared with an AA stimulation to a non-sympathetic (placebo) point. However, it did not significantly alter EDR compared with no treatment. This implies that the increase in response as a result of inserting the needles was negated by placing the electrodes in the AA sympathetic point. Consequently, one might surmise that there may be a specific action of AA in respect to hyperhidrosis resulting from an increase in sympathetic activity.J Altern Complement Med. 1998 Spring;4(1):29-38.1998PositifAbstract
