Hey there Acupals,
I've recently been having a discussion with a gentleman about the method used when obtaining Qi.
He argues that the only way to get Qi is through vigorous stimulation that causes a sharp shock.
When I practice my method is to bring the Qi to the point with the left hand, let the qi build up under my finger, insert the needle, listen to and allow the Qi to build further at the tip of the needle, withdraw needle, close point.
I would use some stimulation if the Qi is taking to long to arrive, but would first check my location.
Check out the video we are discussing at
I'd love to hear some more opinions on the matter :)
