It would sometimes be more appropriate, especially in a thin person, to use a half-inch needle in some tennis elbow and tenosynovitis ashi. Experience, personal preference and individual patient variation will often playa part in needle selection. The important thing is that the right point is hit. It is impractical (and probably unnecessary) for us to be too dogmatic about point location. ), provided one accepts the principle of deqi. If deqi is produced with the ashi and traditional points, it is fair to assume that the needle is properly located.

Figure 14 The ren channel 34 The Channels and Points Table 2 summarizes the channels and their respective key and distal points. 3 It is obviously easier to visualize the location of the channels by means of a body model with the channels marked on it. Such models are available from suppliers of acupuncture equipment (Chapter 9). I would urge you to purchase one. You will have noted that certain channels have more than one distal point described - really it is a matter of personal choice or anatomical convenience depending on the position of the patient.

The results certainly seem to be as good (see Chapter 8). Generally, if treatment is successful, the effects will last six months or more. In self-limiting conditions, complete resolution is not uncommon. It is perfectly feasible to have, say, six-monthly 'top-up' treatments in the more chronic conditions. After the first treatment, one of three things will happen: no change, worsening of symptoms (syn. aggravation in homeopathy) or improvement, sometimes amounting to complete resolution. The latter frequently occurs in the more acute conditions and it may be that no more treatment is necessary.
