Successful Traditional Acupuncture Treatment for Chronic Sinusitis

Regarding Michelle’s Treatment for acute/chronic sinusitis I have found the metal points of the kidney and liver meridians, Ki.7 and Liv.4 to be the most effective in addressing her fundamental Liver imbalance or deficiency.In addition to these points when necessary and it usually is, I shunt LI.3 to address the relatively excessive amount of heat in the arm yangming meridian.

If the lungs are affected I will either tonify the fire point Lu.10 or shunt the Xi Cleft point Lu.6.

In conjunction with the command points mentioned above I also used related back shu points where indicated by palpation, in this case Bl.13 – 18 – 20 – 23 – 58.

With Michelle I was able to achieve an extremely positive clinical outcome in just two treatments using only acupuncture by stimulating the supplementation and circulation of her Wei Qi through judicious superficial needling and the use of the related metal points to help balance her constitutional deficiency.

It is time for me to hit the water and get my blood and Qi moving for the day.

On that ambitious note, I hope that your day/evening is a good one, indeed.
