The practitioner inserts a 7 cun needle into Juque (RN 14) at angle of 25 degree downwards in the muscles till the needle tip is close to the umbilicus and then rotates the needle clockwise for 3-5 times till the needle is fixed with the abdominal muscle and holds the needle for 40-50 minutes. The patient will feel strong soreness and contraction of the local muscles which is gradually spread from lower abdomen to upper gastric region, and then withdraw the needle gently. After the treatment, the patient is required to stay in bed for 3 days.
