Abstract: Magnetic stimulation has become a very topical research area in bioelectromagnetics studies. One of the major problems in understanding the observed changes in biological systems resulting from exposures to magnetic fields is the relationship of biological changes to physical processes. It is well known that acupuncture has many varied physiologic effects on the functional systems of human subjects. However, there are still many unknown questions or issues pertinent to acupuncture which are yet to be answered. The combination of acupuncture with magnetic stimulation is, for example, an important aspect worthy of thorough clinical studies. In this paper, the effects for magnetic stimulation on acupoints are discussed in three ways: physical analysis based on electromagnetism; medical treatment analysis based on Chinese medical theory of acupuncture; experimental observations on the electroencephalographic (EEG) waveforms as a result of magnetic stimulation on some acupoints of the human subjects participating in this study.
