Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome

There is an extremely fine line between CFS and fibro, but there is a difference. Depending on they consultant you get on the day, they may go either way. Getting it wrong will cause more harm than good to the patient leading to much severe symptoms and possibly developing other conditions. I firmly believe TICM are much better equipped to deal with any 'medical conditions'.

SP21 is an amazing point I love to needle in clinic. But majority of doctors don't do crazy things like me. There is a particular method of needling this point and if done incorrectly especially in thin patients, there is a substantial risk of inducing pneumothorax.

SP21 is called Great Wrapping in English and is the final point in the Spleen meridian. It is wonderful to use when one is feeling weak, notices pain all over the body, and feels fullness in the chest. Such an amazing point that it deals with the pain of the entire body and flaccidity of the hundred joints to name a couple.

This technique also stimulates GB21, which is most commonly used for pain, neck stiffness, shoulder tension, and headaches. This point is called Shoulder Well in English.

Make fists and place below the armpit on SP21. Massage 3-10 minutes each direction, 2-3 times daily. After the massage, look upwards and bend your neck to open up the neck vertebrates to help release stress and tight neck.
