Acupuncture Needle Pricking & Chronic Pain.

Sometimes if pain is chronic and deep seated, we Acupuncturists squeeze a few drops of blood from selected acupuncture points to relieve severe pain. Sometimes your body may bleed a few drops of blood on its own and this process removes stagnation and release the back pain, neck or sciatic pains in any part of the body.  

What it does, it lets "Stagnant Blood" exit and thus a blockage is removed and new blood can flow smoother. This procedure in many cases facilitates reduction of pain, skin disorders etc.

In my practice, I mostly use it for either severe acute or chronic pains. It can also be used for headaches, low back pains, skin problems, depression, chronic digestive problems, respiratory conditions and some reproductive issues like (PMS, Ovarian Pain, Endometriosis etc). Often a few drops of blood is enough. Some times a suction cup can be put on top of bleeding acupuncture point to get more "Bad Blood" out.

Today I used needle pricking on 2 people. One for Low Back Pain and the other for severe Neck and Shoulder Pain। In addition to Acupuncture both people improved additional 30-50% right after needles pricking was done.
Another case I want to mention is one of my clients suffered from chest pains, especially on inhalations for about 3-6 months. Traditional Medical Exam did not show anything. I bled one of the fingers and the next day the patient reported 90% improvement. Encouraged by the results and great reduction in pain, I started doing it more often for chronic and long standing difficult ailments.
Conclusion: Needle Pricking is very useful and effective method for difficult and chronic ailments. Do NOT be afraid it almost does NOT hurt.
