Pain relief  

Pain relief

I tried blood stasis protocol.  

The acupuncture points are +(SP3 태백, LU9 태연), – LI11 곡지.  As for acute low back pain, I added SI3 후계.   Two consecutive sessions everyday relieved pain completely, in addition to normal range of motion.  The protocol seems to move blood and qi, thereby stopping pain.

Korea Four Needle 

Korea Four Needle

Sah-Ahm acupuncture is known as Korea Four Needle in the United States.  The technique is one of the traditional acupuncture techniques in Korea.  Most practitioners in Korea use the technique.  Sah-Ahm is presumed to be the alternate name of the practitioner who might have lived in the 1600s.

I am planning to post many protocols of Sah-Ahm acupuncture, which can be useful in clinic settings.  The protocols are variations of the regular protocols.  I refer to the book written and edited by Dr Dalho Kim.
