Black eye from eye Acupuncture

Acupuncture black eye for unfortunate Mark Here is an example of a bruise from needling. The funny thing is that Mark had both ST 1 points needled and only one side bruised. In regards to techniques for needling he said the short and quick technique was the unbruised side and the slower more delicately needled side was the side that came up. I've only seen this a couple of times and after a few days it is gone. Still, that's why we are practicing now. Good work Mark and you look cool

The black eye was not necessarily caused by the slow technique. Slow insertions are safer for the amateur acupuncturist, as our fingers are not sensitive enough to feel what is going on at the other end of the needle. The bruising could be either due to the technique on insertion or EXSERTION.
