Effect of acupuncture upon the nasal resistance to airflow: Among 8 acupuncture points which were recorded in Chinese traditional medical literatures as effective for improving nasal breathing, Ingxiang point had been proved to possess definite effect of lowering the nasal resistance to air-flow in patients with congestion of nasal mucosa, whereas in other acupuncture points this effect was not certain. 2.
