My treatment style is as follows: I decide the pattern and then I do the root treatment followed by the branch (symptomatic) treatment. After the acupuncture, the patient gets direct moxibustion on 5 to 10 points. Patients come in once a week on an average. If possible I instruct patients to do moxibustion at home. When they can’t do moxibustion, then it’s time for New Pyonex. I place New Pyonex on the moxibustion points for symptom control.
How I use New Pyonex
- Little children with colic: Often GB-21 is extremely tight, especially on the left. Children don’t complain about such things, but they must be under a lot of stress. New Pyonex can be attached without the child crying.
- For dizziness, LR-1 and the auricular vertigo point work especially well. The conventional intradermal needles are good for the auricular point, but New Pyonex can be used instead. New Pyonex can be used on LR-1 also. I have patients press the points gently three times a day.
- For coughing and chest pains I often use the axillary point. Especially for children, I press quickly to find the point and put New Pyonex on instantly.
- For joint pain I put New Pyonex on the most reactive points. Keep these points to a minimum. The important thing is to accurately locate the reactive points.
Advice in using New Pyonex
Since they are painless and so simple to use, they can be overused. Overuse leads to loss of effect. To prevent this, select just a few points. One must employ a professional view and touch to find those points that work. Novices can use New Pyonex, but experts use them better.
