RÉSUMÉ

In the second part of the review article, monitoring of microcirculation during acupuncture is described. Laser Doppler flowmetry and laser Doppler imaging provide easy-to-use, noninvasive, real-time measurements of local tissue blood flow. Using these types of biomedical equipment, it is possible to quantify and objectify peripheral changes in microcirculation during different methods of acupuncture stimulation (manual needle acupuncture and laserneedle acupuncture).
