Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) It has been known that stimulating acupuncture points is closely related to autonomic nervous activities and thus our health. Acupressure of planta pedis is a relatively easy and commonly used method. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of acupressure of planta pedis on electroencephalograms (EEG) and autonomic nervous activity. Twenty-two healthy college students were participated in this experiment. During acupressure of planta pedis, some subjects showed the increase in the sympathetic nervous activity (Sym-G), and some subjects showed the increase in parasympathetic nervous activity (Para-G). Pulse wave transmission time (PWTT) increased and heart rates (HR) decreased during the acupressure in both groups. Alpha-1 (8-10 Hz) band power of EEG increased during acupressure of right planta pedis in Sym-G while little changes were observed in Para-G. Alpha-2 (10-13 Hz) band power of EEG changed similarly in both groups during the acupressure of planta pedis.
