Fu’s Subcutaneous Needling

25&26 mei, 2024
  • Jidong Wu

Fu’s Subcutaneous Needling (FSN) is a newly developed acupuncture therapy by Dr Zhong-hua Fu in the 1990s. This acupuncture therapy uses a modified acupuncture needle to stimulate areas near to tighten muscles so as to treat musculoskeletal and other conditions.
The FSN therapy only horizontally insert a single trocar needle to the subcutaneous tissue and therefore it causes less pain to the patients.
FSN therapy is a very safe practice and extremely beneficial to those suffering from musculoskeletal conditions. For some acute pain conditions, such as muscular and ligaments strains, tennis elbow, or acute back pain, using the FSN technique can produce almost instant pain relief. Once you have gained this skill, you certainly can repeat this effect confidently.
The FSN needle is a specially made disposable dry needle, consisting of a solid stainless-steel needle and casting tube (Picture 1). The needle is delivered by a special designed delivery device which makes this needling insertion almost pain free (Picture 2).
The FSN technique mainly focuses on relieving muscles tension, which are commonly associated with pain. The FSN technique can be used to treat tennis elbow, shoulder pain, neck pain, low back pain, sciatica, fibromyalgia, trigeminal pain and even some so-called internal disorders such as insomnia, dizziness, tinnitus, diarrhea, heavy ureteral bleeding if a proper diagnosis and muscles assessment is made correctly.

In this two-days seminar, Dr Wu will introduce the theories behind FSN and discuss its classical and scientific background. He will also demonstrate the FSN technique on patients and conduct hands-on practice on how to use and manipulation the technique.
