Needle in place, eyes cannot be opened.
Here's a close up of Michael with my needling.
We continue with our acupuncture practice! It looks a bit full on and it's a delicate, sensitive area called stomach 1. The needle passes through the space above the bone into the eye socket but isn't close to the eyeball. I wouldn't say this point is needled much but it is stated that it draws energy to the eyes and is helpful to "calm and cool " the Liver , associated with eyes in Chinese Medicine. Some books state that it is forbidden to be needled too. However it's part of our curriculum. When it was done to me it wasn't painful, but I was definitely a bit nervous.
