Abstract: It has been shown in acupuncture practice that it is more effective in patients with moderate inhibition of sympathetic nervous activities after acupuncture. The purpose of this paper is to elucidate the role of periph- eral cholinergic nervous system in the process of electroacupuncture. The cholinesterase activity (ACHE) in erythrocytes was measured before and after electroacupuncture in patients with headache by the methods of El- lsman and Lewis with some modifications. Recorded at the same time was the microcirculation of finger nailfolds. In 53 cases treated with electroacupuncture, the effectiveness in 45 was favorable and 8 unfavorable. The AChE activity decreased after elec- troacupuncture in most favorable cases (75%), but increased in most of unfavorable cases (62%). The mean decrease of AChE activity in favo- rable cases was statistically significant (p0.001)but the mean increase in unfavorable cases was not significant. The mean velocity of microcirculation in finger nailfolds in patients with favorable effects after needling was significantly faster than before needling. The experiment suggests that probably the peripheral parasympathetic nervous system participates to some extent in the analgesic effects of elec- troacupuncture in the headache patients.
