Temperature and Safety Profiles of Needle-Warming Techniques in Acupuncture and Moxibustion

Figure 4

(a) and (d) thermographic images showing temperature along the needle during the hottest period of needle-warming. (b) and (e) temperature reading of the needles as shown in (a) and (d), respectively. The -axis indicates the distance from the moxa block. (c) and (f) line graphs showing mean temperature reading of the needles at fix distances from the moxa block during the hottest period of needle-warming ( experiments). In (a), (b), and (c), a cotton thread was placed 25 mm below the moxa block perpendicularly near the needle to facilitate measurements. In (d), (e), and (f), a piece of cardboard was placed 25 mm below the moxa block with the needle piercing through it.
