Once deqi is experienced, there is no virtue in continuing to stimulate and the needle should just be left in situ. Traditional teaching on this subject is most complex in that certain conditions need certain points to be highly stimulated and other points 'sedated' or 'reduced' (less stimulated). I would say at this stage that this is unimportant and the technique described above would suit all the methods advocated in this book. These high reactors should certainly not be stimulated further, and needles should only be left in for a comparatively short time.

Among the obvious disadvantages are expense and time consumption. The main contra-indication to the use of electroacupuncture is the presence of a pacemaker but the passing of currents across the chest should be avoided in anyone with a history of heart disease. There is a present vogue for using electrical therapy without needles by simply using a probe on an acupuncture point. Much evaluation has yet to be done before one can comment on whether or not this is effective. This method is distinct from transcutaneous nerve stimulation (TNS) which has been widely used for some time.
