After each acupuncture treatment for the patient with pain in the lower body such as low back pain, knee pain, ankle pain, etc., I usually ask the patient to stand up and move the body to check the area where has been painful before the treatment.
At this point, if the patient feels tightness, uncomfortable feeling or a little bit of pain, I touch a point on the abdomen with a round-tip needle with the patient standing. After a few seconds of touching with the needle, I ask the patient to move the body again. In a lot of cases, the pain or tightness goes away or gets better.
Before I had found this abdominal point, I asked the patient to lie on the table again and tried to find tightness or painful points and gave a treatment to remove them.
But now I don’t need to have my patient lie on the table again, so I feel this abdominal point is very convenient and effective for touch-up treatment.
