FOR EFFICIENT TIME MANAGEMENT:
- When using acupuncture needles with the guide tube, hold on the handle while removing the tube and immediately insert. As a result, there is no flopping of the needle onto the skin and then trying to retake the needle, find the right angle and then insert. This also keeps a contact and continuous flow of qi between patient and practitioner.
- After points have been selected for a treatment, move from one body region to the next e.g. all points on the feet, then abdomen, hands etc. Of course, this does not apply to point combinations with their specific sequence.
