Oscillation with Acupuncture
Updated: Mar 11, 2020
After the acupuncture insertion, with the needle retains on the joint, the practitioner applies both gentle oscillation and traction to the joint. The practitioner grabs the patient’s hand like a handshake, and gently shakes with a very small amplitude. The practitioner increases the amplitude depending on the patient’s response. The practitioner should observe the movement of the needle through the whole procedure. The practitioner may also applie the oscillation while the patient in a supine position.
