I have been learning acupuncture lately. I attended a short course in a local university. The course was conducted by a lecturer from the Faculty of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
I know some of you will ask, “Isn’t it dangerous to prick a needle in the body?” Well, to be sure I am not a daredevil too. I do it very cautiously. In particular, so far I only choose ‘acupuncture points’ on my arms and legs, which are considerably less risky to apply the needle.
Here are a few points I have used:
- Hegu (合谷) – alleviates fever
- Zusanli (足三里) – relieves stomach discomfort
- Sanyinjiao (三陰交) – relieves stomach discomfort; also relieves menstrual pain
- Xingjian (行間) – refreshes tired eyes
