Abstract

The research have been conducted to determine the bioenergy alteration in white rat (Rattus Norvegicus) due to needle stimulation in acupuncture point. Twenty eight male white rat were divided randomly to 4 groups. Group 1 was untreated (control). Group 2 was treated by acupuncture with 15 Hz frequency, 10 minutes, for 5 days at Zusanli (SP 36) point. Group 3 was treated by acupuncture with 15 Hz frequency, 10 minutes, for 5 days at combination Zusanli (SP 36) points - Sanyinjiao (SP 6) point. Group 4 was treated by ephedrin's oral consumtion for 5 days in 3 mg/kg weight and the parameter that was used is a maximum travel time of the white rat in the tredmill's trajectory until it reaches the point of exhaustion before and after treatment. The addition of travel time is comparable with the addition of bioenergy, so bioenergy changes in group 2 and 3 can be calculated. The result of multiple comparative analysis with the Least Significant Difference (LSD) of the control group againts ST 36 group indicate a significant difference (p=0,006), control group againts group combination ST 36 - SP 6 indicate a significant difference (p=0,023) and control group againts ephedrin's oral consumption group not indicate a significant difference (p=0,772). Electroacupuncture at Zusanli (SP 36) point and combination Zusanli (SP 36) points - Sanyinjiao (SP 6) point can affect changes of bioenergy.
