  1. to stimulate needle and call qi
    • scratch needle with fingernail
    • thrust and lift
    • fan hand across top of needles
    • rotate needles
    • flick needles
  2. "de qi" feels to patient
    heavy, dull, pressure, sore, distended, numb, spreading, can move along channel
  3. de qi feels to practitionere
    • needle being grabbed
    • tightening or tissue around needle
    • buzzy feeling
  4. supplementing methods
    • length of insertion - 20 min or less
    • speed of thrust vs lift - slow and emphasize thrust
    • rotation of needle - clockwise
    • fewer needles
    • flow of channel - with the flow
    • cover hole with cotton ball
    • breathe- insert on pt exhale
  5. setting the whole mountain on fire
    • insert needle, arrival of qi
    • insert to first level, rotate back and forth
    • insert to second level, stimulate
    • insert to third level, stimulate
    • lift quickly to first level
  6. draining techniques
    • 20 min or more
    • strong stimulation
    • rotation of needle - emphasis on counterclockwise
    • amplitude- larger
    • number of needles - more
    • flow of channel- against channel
    • emphasis on slow lifting
    • uncover hole
    • insert while patient inhales
  7. penetrating the heaven of coolness
    • insert needle
    • insert to 3rd level
    • needle lifted level by level with brief stimulation at each level
  8. even
    • for pain
    • excess and deficient situations
  9. even stimulation
    • moderate stimulation
    • rotate needle- even
    • length- about 20 min
    • thrust- emphasis on needle down and up
  10. perpendicular
    90 degrees from skin
  11. oblique
    30-60 degrees
  12. transverse (superficial)
    10-20 degrees
  13. perpendicular angle
    • most points
    • esp when plentiful muscle
    • UB 22-40
    • Du 15, 16, 25
  14. Oblique\slanted
    • thinner areas
    • when directing qi to an area
    • areas over organs
    • UB 11-UB 21
    • DU 9-14 slanted upwards
  15. transverse
    • thin areas of body
    • scalp
    • du 17-24
    • lu 7
    • ren 16-21
    • liv 14
    • st 7-st 6
  16. ren 22
    perpendicular .2 then oblique downwards
