Values are presented as mean ± SD. ; . A0 = assessed 30 min before acupuncture; A1 = assessed 10 min before acupuncture; A2 = assessed 10 min after acupuncture; DBP: diastolic blood pressure; SBP: systolic blood pressure; SD = standard deviation. 95% CI is presented as a range from the lower limit to the upper limit.
