What is Fu's Subcutaneous Needle (FSN) used for?

In this image, you can see the famous Dr. Zhonghua Fu, MD, providing Demonstration of the  Fu's acupuncture treatment for us at a conference.

FSN needles are distally inserted to the affected area. The needles are then manipulated and act on soft connective tissue (subcutaneous layer),  where collagen fibers are most abundant.  During the manipulation of the needle, collagen fibers would then wind and tighten around the needle shaft. FSN abstains from the muscle and deep fascia layers.

Here is one of many reviews from a customer from Yelp: "I saw Dr. Hongmei Li for pulled muscles in my back. She was extremely gentle and the needle work she did was significantly helpful in alleviating the pain. She also provided me with some herbs to help relax my muscles so I could sleep and they really helped too. She was very thorough in the questions she asked to help determine the root cause of the issue. I will definitely return if I experience any other issues. I highly recommend."
