Getting That Qi Sensation When Needled


Did you know your acupuncturist isn’t simply putting needles into you and leaving it at that? We search for a sensation we can feel through our fingertips. If you’ve ever been fishing you might know this feeling. You can’t necessarily see what’s happening below the surface of the water when fishing but you can “see” with your fingers down the rod and fishing line. A fisherman feels all sorts of things this way: maybe the fisherman snagged a log, maybe the fish brushed by the hook. Think of the acupuncturist doing the same when they are “fishing” for your qi. Instead of landing a fish however, we catch your qi!
