I usually have my patients do home therapy using a penny and a nickel, called 6 Cents Treatment. This treatment regulates the energy flow of your body influencing the diseased area like acupuncture treatment. The acupuncture points to place a penny and a nickel are called Extraordinary Vessel points. There had been classical 8 points and 4 combinations in the extraordinary vessel points, and 4 more points were added. I choose 2 or 3 points and have my patients tape the coins on the points.
The frequency of treatment is once or twice a day, and if you have problems with pain, you can do this treatment when you feel pain. The duration is 30 minutes. If the marked black dots for the treatment fade off, mark them by yourself before they are completely gone. Penny is often dark and rusty, so try to use a shiny penny or make it shiny before using it. This treatment is usually applicable for 2 weeks.
The treatment is very simple, but if you forgot, please refer to the following.

You can also use magnets and moxa (heat therapy) on these points. When you want to use them instead of coins, please let me know.
