Introduction: Abdominal acupuncture (AA), Bao???s Fu Zhen is a kind of new therapy developed by Prof. Bao Zhi-Yun in China.
AA uses the area between CV12 (ZhongWan) and CV3 (ZhongJi) on the vertical line and Sp15 (DaHeng) as the outer most
points on the horizontal lines. To cure acute tissue injuries, two typical cases are illustrated.
Case 1 Fall Injury: Ms. Zeng. Zeng fell accidentally during work. Hematoma on left chin and felt pain on left neck, shoulder,
arm. Pain increased when doing left shoulder movements. Treatment: CV12, KI19 left, CV10, KI17 bilateral, ST24 left, shoulder
and neck corresponding point left, upper rheumatism point (AB1) left, upper lateral rheumatism point (AB2) left with 3
needles, all points are punctured in superficial, depth was about 0.1-0.2 cun. After 20 minutes of treatment, pain improved and
Case 2 Finger injury: Ms. Chan. Left fingers were clipped by the closing taxi door. Four fingers on left hand were swollen,
painful and not able to flex. Left hand was raised up with fingertips pointing upwards, used right index fingertip to massage
the upper lateral rheumatism point (AB2, 1 cun laterally from ST 24) on the left upper abdomen gently for 2-3 minutes, pain
and swollen dissipated about 50%. Another 10 minutes massaging the point, kept flexion fingers and then flexor fist. Not much
pain retained in the injured fingers in the next day.

points with superficial puncture, the pain on distant injured tissue will cease. Therefore it is a super weapon to kick away pain
