This study aims to investigate the effect of pulsed magnetic field (PMF) stimulus on the circulation in the pericardium meridian system (AMS) by means of EAV (electroacupuncture according to Voll) and the galvanic skin response (GSR). The PMF stimulus was applied to PC8 at least three times a week for one month in order to see the continuous effect of PMF stimulation. The Max value measured at every biological active point except PC9 was found to be close to the normal range of 45 ~ 58 one month later. Therefore, PMF stimulation seems to be very effective in improving the function of the tenon-tissue connected to the pericadium meridian in Oriental medicine. The magnetic flux change due to the PMF is thought to lead to a strong stimulus at the acupoints, which have a lower impedance than the surrounding tissues and affects the current in the cell tissue. For further use of our results in meridian diagnosis, additional experiments on the subject for diverse diseases are required, as is a study of the changes in PMF intensity, transition time and stimulation duration.
