It is a well-known fact that the phenomenon of human body is formed as
the balance state with undulation. Therefore, chaos analysis was
applied to these fluctuating data , and the visualization and analysis
of the undulation wave were tried according to (1) a change of
sphygmogram in meditation or concentration, (2) a change of sphygmogram
with the acupuncture on Ho-ku stimulation and (3) a change of H-wave
repetitive-evoked electro-myography (RE-EMG) under the influence of
acupuncture anesthesia (A.A.). Each undulation wave was shown as an
attractor. As an exponent which shows the human body state, the process
was shown by Lyapunov exponent. So, it is possible to show the stage of
mental psychology and the effect of acupuncture techniques (the
tonification method and the sedation method, acupuncture point,
stimulation method etc.).

It seems that the effect of acupuncture has an influence on the
undulation of human body and acupuncture is effective for restoring the
condition of human body. A.A. blocked the control from the central
nerve and affected the exercise system. Meditation practise showed the
similar chaos state such as Qigong practise , but chaos state in an
imagination practise was different.
