This data is from a patient we’ve discussed before. She was a profound responder with almost immediate resolution of her headaches with acupuncture. This is her summarized Sympathetic Activity or Flight/Fight activity during acupuncture minutes 6 to 12. This prolonged decrease in sympathetic activity over time is one of the things I find so compelling about acupuncture and using HRV to chronicle autonomic change. Not every patient has this same degree of decrease, of course, but it’s nice to see. A decrease of over 1/2 over months.
