Neijing Classical Acupuncture: Technical needling and diagnostics The ability to truly engage and connect with the appropriate and required needling method is no easy feat in Chinese medicine. Knowing how to properly insert the needle, the type of needle needed, the distinct depth and necessary manipulation of that needle, is something that is lacking from so many education facilities in this profession.
