Ginger moxibustion is also reported to produce reliable effects in the treatment of chemotherapy-induced leukopenia (Zhao et al. 2007). Few mechanistic studies of indirect moxibustion exist. One study reported moxibustion may act by producing modest thermal action and a sympathetic vibration at the skin surface (Shen et al. 2006). Another study reported that ginger moxibustion is effective in relieving abdominal pain in patients with primary dysmenorrhea. It is thought that this effect may be associated with the lowering of plasma endothelin-1 levels and elevations in serum NO (Yang et al.

2000) reported that morphine-induced place preference in rats is significantly suppressed by frequencies of 2 and 2/100 Hz, but not by 100 Hz. However, Shi et al. (2003) showed that 100 Hz electroacupuncture significantly attenuated morphine-induced CPP, and this effect was completely blocked by δ- and κ-opioid receptor antagonists, suggesting that the anti-craving effects induced by 100 Hz electroacupuncture are mediated by the activation of δand κ-opioid receptors. In 2008, Yang et al. (2008a) reviewed the possible mechanism underlying the effectiveness of acupuncture in the treatment of drug addiction and provided clear evidence for the biological effects underlying the use of acupuncture to treat drug abuse.

1980) and plasma enkephalin (Kiser et al. 1983) have been observed after acupuncture. Subsequently, the relationship between AA and different endogenous opiates has been examined. Pomeranz and colleagues first described the possibility that different mechanisms of analgesia exist, in their investigations into different frequencies of electroacupuncture application (Cheng and Pomeranz 1979), which inspired further research. The most widely recognized research group comprises Dr Han and colleagues (Chen and Han 1992), whose experiments in electroacupuncture analgesia have clarified that frequency is a basic determinant for secretion of different endogenous opiates.
