Why remote pain during the session?
Why there is a remote pain during the session? This question bothered some people and I was asked by an acupuncturist for the explanation.
Acupuncture treatment is to soothe Qi and blood smooth flow. Meanwhile, increase the amount of Qi and blood flow. By doing so, it can do detoxification, unblock the blockage. Meanwhile, it brings in the body needs stuffs such as nutrients, immune stuffs, hormone, etc. to the needed site that along the Qi and blood flowing route in order to do the body repair job.
If one has sickness, according to the sickness, there will have different places in the body got blocked. There is a famous Chinese saying: (When qi and blood flowing to the blockage site), blockage causes pain. More severe blockage has more pain. Less severe blockage, has less pain.
Our body’s meridians are connected together. They are our qi and blood flowing channels. When doing acupuncture, the increased amount qi and blood flowing to the blockage area causes pain. The place of the pain and the pain severity tell us where is the blockage and how severe it is as a warning sign to us.
If the heart has a blockage or heart has a problem, the pain sensation will be abnormal. Some people will be hyper and some will be hypo. After treatment, the heart recovers to be normal, the pain sensation will also gradually go back to normal.
