This is a Five Element treatment used for clearing a patient of aggressive energy. It is very similar to the TCM treatment sometimes called the "Shen Cycle" or "Shen Circle". Half inch (1/2") needles are inserted just barely under the skin, from top to bottom and right to left, usually inserting BL-15 as the last point.

The points in this treatment:

Needles are left in the patient until the redness that appears around the points is gone. A test point can be added to this treatment to gauge the redness appearing at specific points in the treatment.
