Core Tip Acupuncture has been used as an appropriate adjunctive treatment for gastrointestinal (GI) dysfunction diseases. However, the therapeutic effects and underlying mechanisms in treating GI dysfunction have not yet been established due to a lack of systematic and comprehensive review articles. This review clarifies the effects and underlying mechanisms of acupuncture on GI function from various perspectives including GI motility, visceral sensitivity, the GI barrier, and the brain–gut axis. In addition, the dual regulatory effects and the intensity-dependent nature of acupuncture on GI motility were discussed.
