Pericardium 5, Jianshi, bruise

We did treatments on each other last week and I had PC5 needled. Didn't feel a thing, felt OK during and no pain on needle removal. The next day I looked at my arm and I had this bruise there. Just goes to show sometimes you can get bruising from needling without misplacing the needle. What's your theory on the bruise and what it can mean from a TCM point of view?

PS since I last put that post up about the cupping video, views have gone to 83,000 plus now!

Yep, looks like they got PC6 instead of Pc5, if you move any finger during the needling, bruises and median nerve irritation can occur.
But hey its only a little sub dermal bleeding, as long as the point did its job. Perhaps use japanese needles in future and not the thrift Uni ones.
Best regards Flying Pin.
