Pricky way to treat stroke patients

During one of the lectures, my Chinese medicine lecturer told us about his student who worked as a hospital assistant in a hospital. He had revived many patients who were in coma. While waiting for the arrival of a doctor, he poked the tips of all the patient's 8 fingers and 2 thumbs to release blood. Marvellously, the man regained consciousness before the arrival of the doctor. He would have been dead if the doctor had arrived late.

This same method can be used to treat those who had stroke. The poking of the fingers will release blood to prevent him from irreparable damage as further movement will rupture more arteries. If his mouth is bent to one side, both his earlobes can be pricked to release blood and the mouth will be straightened again. How marvellous!

This is one of the wonders of Chinese medicine.
