Abstract
Objectives : Although the tonification and sedation method such as mountain-burning fire method and heaven-penetrating cooling method, is one of the important techniques that have been claimed to increase the effect of acupuncture, research on this has been sparse. The aim of this study is to provide an understanding of tonification and sedation methods in the 『Yeongsochimgugyeong』.
Methods : We analyzed the similarities and differences by comparing the contents of the tonification and sedation method described in books 『Yeongsochimgugyeong』 and 『Complete Compendium of Acupuncture and Moxibustion』.
Results : A total of 28 out of the 33 tonification and sedation methods described in 『Yeongsochimgugyeong』 were compared with those in 『Complete Compendium of Acupuncture and Moxibustion』. As a result, we found that many of the tonification and sedation methods recorded in 『Yeongsochimgugyeong』 were based on more detailed and specific clinical cases.
Conclusions : The tonification and sedation methods in 『Yeongsochimgugyeong』 were not only descriptive and consistent in describing that methods, but also contains valuable information for clinical use. In the future, based on this research, we will be able to clinically implement these tonification and sedation methods and quantitatively evaluate them.
