How to treat the points: There are many ways to treat acupuncture points. An easy and effective way is to use fingertip pressure. Once the point is located, gently rub the point with a random pattern. You should feel a sensation that “Chi has arrived”. The sensation of Chi is difficult to describe as it is not always the same. You should feel a lightness or heaviness or tingling sensation at the point and in the areas surrounding the point. Treat each point for 30-60 seconds.
