From Dr. Choi’s experience working in South Korea’s national public health care and as an university researcher working alongside talented medical doctors and other scientists, Dr. Choi’s experience led him to develop an acupuncture technique called, “Kinetic Acupuncture.” This acupuncture technique is based on modern science. Dr. Choi has boldly confessed that it gave him the freedom and clarity to his acupuncture career and is now thrilled to share his technique with other professionals.

Total 5 times of treatment, she visited twice a week. The reason of fast recovery was because it has been 2 years already. It was thawing stage.

Thank you for your patience

Thank you for your patience

Geundongchim is a major Kinetic Acupuncture maneuver treating muscle tightening, trigger points, and weakness. Isometric contraction and stretching are combined with 'FenCi(分刺)'. FenCi in NeiJing refers to the direct insertion into the muscles for treating bi syndrome.

Gwandongchim is an acupuncture technique combining GuanCi (关刺) with the various joint movements. GuanCi in NeiJing refers to the insertion of acupuncture into the joint cavity and surrounding tissues like tendons and ligaments. Combining joint movements consist of oscillation, traction, rolling, and sliding.

'OS' stands for 'onset', I am sorry for confusing with abbreviation

@Kay, about needle size
It depends on location and purposes. For regular movement 0.2 diameter is commonly used. My most used needle diameters are 0.2 & 0.4mm. O.4mm is finer compared to dry-needle. Thanks.

@Karen and Michele
Thanks for interest!

This video is explaining about patello-femoral insertion and patella movement (sliding and rolling) There are so many other detailed Kineticacupunncture techniques I did not explain here. Today we only took care of basic formula to mix.

@Christopher about distal point
I should have been clearer about this. Yes, you can use any style of acupuncture for this. Because it is not the area of Kinetic acupuncture, I did not spare time for explanation about this regular needling. REGULAR acupuncture you have been already doing can be applied. Therefore I can say Kineticacupuncture is not substituting regular acupuncture. It is just another weapon, especially for chronic musculoskeletal problems.

@Kasra about needling point of Gwandong chim
Yes, needle location of Gwandong chim is basically joint cavity where the injured(target) tissue is located. For example of wrist, in case of TFCC ulnar side cavity is the location, and in case of De Quervain's disease, radial side is. But, practically in case of De Quervain's disease, Geundong Chim is more importand because it is not the problem with inside of joint.

@Carlos, ilhwa, Evan, Yang, Wong and Jeanice
Thank you for your interest. you are the best! Yes, I will do it again with a lot more demonstrations of actual techniques.

@Elizabeth, about needle bending
A: Basically needle should NOT be bent or move. That is the reason why we apply isometric contraction or eccentric contraction as a basic movement. I demonstrated how not to bend needles on myself, at the 15-20 min, isometric slide. In case of Gwandongchim with joint play, needle do not move either, because needle is located at empty space like femoro-tibial space. But, some techniques involve movement of needle like giving feedback or detaching technique.

@Dr.Song, about the fake golf ball.
A. Thank you for question for clarity Dr.Song and thanks for the answer Dr.Gaeor. It is made of dense foam. Here is the my education video about that practice.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2fzaLkxOjRg
I made that one for my students, because I could not find any insertion technique explanation on the text. It happened to be only in Korean, I think you can understand.
Recommended needle is 0.2mm diameter, and 30mm length, because it is easier to get straightness.
