Core Tip This is the first study we know of that investigates the effect and mechanism of acupuncture at heterotopic acupoints on jejunal motility in normal rats or rats with constipation or diarrhea. We observed that acupuncture at heterotopic LI11 or ST37 points increased jejunal motility regardless of initial condition. We demonstrated that acupuncture applied at these points regulated jejunal motility by activating A? and C afferent fibers; however, the latter predominates. M2 receptors play a role in this process.
