The present study was performed to evaluate the relationship between measurements done by the rectangular pulse current method and the autonomic nervous system. The indexes of autonomic function, perspiration and blood flow were continuously measured together with the initial maximum current (BP: before polarization) and the stable current after polarization (AP: after polarization), and the correlation between them was investigated. The AP was related to perspiration, while the BP was correlated to blood flow. Moreover, to evaluate the effects of untouched healing more strictly, four variations of an experiment were performed, namely under suggestion, without suggestion, entrance and resting. Analysis of the changes in the BP and AP during healing showed that the effects experienced by the receiver by remotely operated untouched healing differed from those of the placebo effect.
