  Abstract Dysmenorrhea is a very common disease in China and the Western world. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), this condition mostly relates to Coldness pathogeny. Based on TCM, a warming needle acupuncture technique dredges out the Coldness to ease pain.

With the onset of dymenorrheal pain, skin temperature of the lower abdomen at the locus of pain is lower than that of a nonpainful area on the abdomen. After acupuncture stimulation, or when the pain is relieved, skin temperature returns to normal values. It can be concluded that there is a relationship between pain and skin temperature. However, further research on that topic is needed.
