Study Start Date: June 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Shingigu
Treat with Shingigu
Device: Moxibustion
Comparison of different kinds of moxibustion
Active Comparator: Charcoal
Treat with Charcoal
Device: Moxibustion
Comparison of different kinds of moxibustion

Detailed Description:
Moxibustion is traditional treatment that regulate circulation of Qi-blood by making the body warm to prevent and treat disease. Recently many kinds of moxibustion and moxibustion apparatus were developed. However evaluating efficacy of moxibustion is insufficient. Thus, there is need for objective evaluating about efficacy of moxibustion.
