Treatment formulas for pain conditions

These formulas contain many points, ideally one should keep the number of points used in any one session to a minimum. Usually, the number would be under 10. Master acupuncturists usually use less than 5 points. The ultimate aim of the Master is to cure with only 1 needle. Acupuncture point selection is based on information gathered from the four exams: looking, listening, asking and palpating.
