The acupuncture therapy has been known since thousands years ago in China as the TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine). One of the main benefits of this therapy is as a function of accelerating recovery in muscle fatigue due to physical activity during resting the body for a certain time. Unfortunately, clinical proofs as in modern medicine or through the stages of analytical laboratory relatively still lack. Therefore, in this paper we consider a method to explore acupuncture therapy which has been known can improve the human body stamina based on Electromyography (EMG) measurement as the main source of quantitative analysis. In this paper, EMG is used as a source information that will represent the characteristic of biceps muscle fatigue from initial condition up to recovery condition. Initial condition described that volunteers will be treated a physical stimulation on 5 kg static load exercise. Recovery condition described that all volunteers will be separated into two groups, where the first group obtained acupuncture treatment and the second group did not. Then, bioelectricity from muscle measured as analysis of EMG comparisson between two groups. Furthermore, the effect of acupuncture therapy will be evaluated quantitatively by this EMG data conversion into statistical data analysis; i.e. Power Spectral Density (PSD) and Median Frequency (MF).
