True or False: Most points are needled between 0.5 and 1 inch.

True

6

Where on the body would you use a Shallow depth needle insertion (0.3 - 0.5")?

· head, face, neck- upper torso / ribcage- wrist- hand, foot

7

Where on the body would you use a Medium depth needle insertion (0.5 - 1.2")?

· midsection
· lower abdomen
· upper back
· shoulder blade
· upper & lower arm
· lower leg

8

Where on the body would you use a Deep insertion (1.5" and beyond)?

· waist (front & back)
· upper leg- hip

9

What are the 3 general angles of insertion for needles? Approximately how many degrees does each correspond to?

1) Perpendicular - 90 degrees
2) Oblique - 45 degrees
3) Horizontal or Subcutaneous or Transverse - 10 degrees

10

True or False: Depth of needling is largely determined by body part.

True

11

Where on the body would you use an Oblique needle insertion?

· over ribs, internal organs
· back shu point
· over bone (e.g. LU 7)

12

Where on the body would you use a Horizontal (or Subcutaneous) needle insertion? Is this always a Shallow insertion?

· directly over bone
· on the scalp
· not necessarily shallow; can go beyond 1"

13

Where on the body would you use a Perpendicular needle insertion?

into muscle, flesh, joints

14
