Basic Foundations of Acupuncture Techniques
According to the Huang Di Nei Jing

In the process of needling, the physician should think about nothing else but needling, one should concentrate upon what one is doing as if living in an isolated and quiet place, with doors and windows closed, that is to say a remote place for contemplation, dividing pure energy evenly throughout the whole body, neither to hear noise from outside nor to be distracted by inner thought. In short, a physician should only be attentive to the act of needling and nothing else.
Thus, five essential aspects of acupuncture have been made known under heaven, but the ordinary people being preoccupied with farming, paying taxes, and feeding themselves, cannot be expected to know them.
• The first aspect of acupuncture is to treat the spirit.
• The second aspect of acupuncture is to learn how to lead a healthy lifestyle.
• The third aspect of acupuncture is to acquire true knowledge of medicine herbs.
• The fourth aspect of acupuncture is to manufacture stone needles, big or small.
• The firth aspect of acupuncture is to learn how to make diagnosis of bowels, viscera, blood and energy.
The five aspects of acupuncture are to be applied according to circumstances. Physicians of today know nothing more than tonifying deficiency and sedating excess, which is common knowledge among physicians of the lower class.
The spirits must be served. That is the way of applying acupuncture. When the patient’s mental states are not positive and when the will and sentiments are not stable, the disease cannot recover. When the patient’s mental states are impaired and the spirits are gone, the nutritive and defensive energy is so dispersed that they cannot be gathered together. It is because the patient is preoccupied with unlimited desires and incessant worries, and consequently, the pure energy is weak and decaying, the nutritive energy is coagulated and defensive energy is removed. That is why the patient’s spirits are gone and the disease cannot recover
The treatment principles:
• In order to treat the patient, the spirits must be there to be served. The spirits must be served.
• The treatment, which is secondary, should be directed at the disease, the spirit to be served, which is primary.
• Treatment should be aimed at regulating the patient’s internal energy, in case it is caused by the disorder of the five viscera.
The right methods of acupuncture treatment should be in harmony with Heaven and Earth to be applied on the basis of individual conditions; the harmony will produce such results as smoothly and as naturally as an echo of a sound or a shadow of an object. The theory behind it is based neither on ghosts nor on divine beings; the theory, once acquired, may be applied with great flexibility and success.
The right methods of acupuncture consist, first and foremost, in full concentration. When the moments of treatment arrive, the physician should act quickly without a moments delay.
The hand holding and twirling the needle should be maneuvered with great concentration and the needle should be clean and shiny and be applied evenly.
The acupuncturist should quietly watch the effects of needling (patient’s face, breathing) and take notice of any change when needling sensations occur. Change is hidden and quiet, which is so invisible and shapeless.
Arrival of energy looks like a gathering of crows, and when energy is accumulating in abundance, it sounds like singing birds. Energy streams flow back and forth like the crows flying but no one knows who is pulling the strings to know its complexities. Acupuncturists should await arrival of energy like a hunter, waiting quietly, with the upper part of the body bent and holding the bow horizontally. When energy arrives, one should shoot their arrows quickly like a hunter.
Treating an excessive disease it is sufficient to make it deficient. Treating a deficient disease it is sufficient to make it solid. When meridian energy arrives, the Acupuncturist should guard it with care and not to miss it. Needle insertion may be deep or shallow, energy arrival may be far off or nearby, but energy responses must take place regardless. (Da Qi)
In the course of needling the acupuncturist should remain as alert as if being at the point of an abyss. Use the hand to hold the needle as persistently as if holding a tiger, concentrate on what you are doing without distraction.
