A reliable method for locating electropermeable points on the skin surface.
A method employing solvent-activated tape electrode was adapted for locating electropermeable points, minimizing possible errors due to human and external factors. Measurements along two meridians on the forearm showed that these points were somewhat scattered about the conventional acupuncture loci and their observable occurrence was probably the result of localized thermal damage of the epidermis.
