In recent years, scientific studies of traditional oriental medicine are accelrating. Furthermore, researches of medical examinations and treatments through collaboration of oriental medicine and western medicine is in progress. This paper will seek for spots on the body suitable for acupuncture using special features that skin impedance values are different. The computer simulation results have shown that Electro-Acupuncture administered by using the medical diagnosis system developed in this study is more effective than the conventional method.
