Ying Zheng (Department of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Fangsong Community Health Service Center of Songjiang District, Shanghai 201620, China E-mail: yingzheng040426@yahoo.cn)
ABSTRACT: Moxibustion therapy is a commonly used external treatment method for numerous conditions and general health care. Besides the effects of the drugs, infrared-heat and radiation spectrum are also the manner of action. By collecting the literature about thermal radiation and infrared spectrum features of moxibustion, the author reported the novel studies on the thermal effect of moxibustion including factors that impacted the temperature, infrared spectrum features, apparatus based on infrared technology employed in clinic for moxibusiton and characteristics of temperature sensitivity. The author also identified some existing problems and provided advice for future application and research.

1. I really like this phsooohott, Zhang Xue is so gorgeous and to be able to "act" in those screen shots is amazing!- check out more pictures of her here: (2015-12-12 0:00:00)
2. Jeff,I can share with you what worked for me. I used Match dot com. What ecreunagod me with Match is first, a flat fee based on length of subscription, and second, direct contact with the person you're responding to. What I might first suggest is, if you're not familiar with QQ chat, learn about this program. Nearly every woman (person) in China will have a QQ account and this can be the connection you can use to communicate. Also, it's free !After reading all the recently posted personals by Chinese woman looking for relationships on match, I sent an email to one woman that intrigued me. I opened the email message by providing my QQ number and invited her to add me as a friend if she was interested in further conversation. Within a few days I received her invitation to connect on QQ.Be advised the most woman posting a personal on Match will not have a paid subscription and not be able to respond directly back to you using the paid service. This is the reason you want to provide your QQ number for them.With direct, real time conversation, I was able to ultimately find the woman I will marry next month. I have now traveled to China twice to be with her, and will return two more times this summer to further our relationship and extend the evidence of relationship.After you make the initial connection using a paid service, the beautiful thing about connecting on QQ is you chat in real time with the option to video chat as well, so your assured of who you're talking with. Also, QQ will keep a time stamped log of your chats which could be used as one form of communication evidence. Currently, I have over 2000 pages of instant message conversations with my fiance9' spanning over the last 6 months. We talk and video every day! QQ also offers inline translation that works fairly well.Hope this helps http://irqgtu.com [url=http://nqpztx.com]nqpztx[/url] [link=http://dnxpkcuranz.com]dnxpkcuranz[/link] (2015-12-13 0:00:00)
