How to Solve a Remote Site Pain or Discomfort? It was asked by an acupuncturist.
During acupuncture or energy healing, when energy unblocked the immediately passing meridian of the healing point where you put happy pin (acupuncture needle) or your hand, the qi will flow to the meridian’s internal/external meridian and the next qi flowing meridian* to work. It there is any blockage, the pain shows.
Most time, the pain will disappear soon. If not, move a hand to the painful spot (or insert a happy pin to the painful spot if you are a licensed acupuncturist), the pain will disappear soon. Otherwise, move both hands to the painful spot: one hand in the front of the body and the other hand on the back of the body. Or, when the client’s posture only allows one side for you to put hands, then, put both hands on one side of the body.
If the pain still increasing and form a sharp pain, if doing energy healing, it’s better to visit a professional. There might be a blood stasis or whatever that can not be solved by the energy healing. But, I have never encountered this situation. The most encountered is the heat accumulating without reducing after waving hand.
Without reducing the heat under energy healing is also a situation to use a formal medical therapy. To me, it’s acupuncture plus moxibusion or the blockage is worse, I add an external herbal formula to treat.
Usually, the pain increasing is due to more qi passing through the blocked spot. It will disappear after the qi carries away the toxins.
* Qi flowing meridian follows this sequence always as: Liver Meridian -> Lung Meridian->Large Intestines Meridian-> Stomach Meridian-> Spleen Meridian -> Heart Meridian-> Small Intestine Meridian -> Bladder Meridian -> Kidney Meridian ->
Pericardium Meridian -> Triple Energizer Meridian (San Jiao Meridian) ->
Gall Bladder Meridian. It follows the WHO’s Standard Acupuncture Nomenclature 2nd edition.
However, if follows the original names in the traditional Chinese medicine as below. You will discover that there is a rule for the qi flowing.
Foot Jue Yin Liver Meridian -> Hand Tai Yin Lung Meridian->Hand Yang Ming Large Intestines Meridian-> Foot Yang Ming Stomach Meridian-> Foot Tai Yin Spleen Meridian -> Hand Shao Yin Heart Meridian-> Hand Tai Yang Small Intestine Meridian -> Foot Tai Yang Urinary Bladder Meridian -> Foot Shao Yin Kidney Meridian -> Hand Jue Yin Pericardium Meridian -> Hand Shao Yang San Jiao Meridian -> Foot Sao Yang
Gall Bladder Meridian.
Though the qi gathers every two hours to one meridian. The qi flowing still follows the same sequence circling in our body repeatedly.
