Front-Mu points are specific acupuncture points located on the ventral surfaces of chest and abdominal wall.Acupuncture to Front-Mu points is used for treating diseases related with visceral organs. Applying acupunctureon Front-Mu points regulates visceral functions. In this article we tried to explain the effect mechanism ofFront-Mu point acupuncture by corresponding these points with the segmental autonomic innervation ofinternal visceral organs. Changes in the visceral organs caused by application of acupuncture can be explainedby viscero-cutaneous, cutaneo-visceral autonomic reflexes and modulation of sympathetic and parasympatheticsystems by these reflexes.
