Objective: The effects of moxibustion on exercised rats were investigated. Methods: Rats were exercised using a swimming model and moxibusting shenshu (U.B.23) was applied every other day to treatment groups for six weeks. Results: It was found that moxibustion shenshu (MS) could attenuate exercise-induced changes in hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA), decrease the level of enzymes in serum and relieve the decreased levels of SOD in both liver and muscle tissues. Conclusion: The application of MS could be applied to relieve exercise-induced fatigue in rats and its implications to human should be further studied.
