Techniques

Needle perpendicularly 1 cun.

  • Deep needling tends to produce better results.
  • Needle contralateral to the affected side when treating pain. When treating everything else, needle the side of Chongxian (T 22.02) where there is more pain upon palpation.

This point can also be bled.

  • Blue veins in this area indicate poor digestion or pain of the neck/shoulder/scapular area as this general area is reflective of the Stomach and the neck/shoulder/scapular areas.
