Attending to the Flow: Attention and Needle Technique • Justin Phillips • Qi049
Needle technique is more than knowing how to insert a needle and count the turns in a particular direction. It requires more than the memorization of some protocols, or the rote following of a recipe of steps.
In this conversation we explore needle technique as a part of understanding how to feel into the tissues of the body. We discuss the creation of a treatment that relies not on someone else’s outline, but from your own understanding of first principles.
Listen in for a discussion of using ourselves as much as using the pins when doing acupuncture.
