“We basically let bees sting acupuncture points on the human body and use the bee venom released to treat the illness”, said doctor Yu.
Aunt Zhan is a 51-year-old who has suffered from rheumatoid arthritis for a long time. She constantly suffers from a lot of pain and can’t take care of herself.
She has recently undergone “bee sting therapy” at the Shenzhen Traditional Medicine Hospital. After being stung at each acupoint on the back, waist, hands and feet, the treatment is finished.
Doctors need to quickly fish a bee out with tweezers and apply it to a specific acupoint, which takes a lot of skill.
Her symptoms have greatly lessened after treatments. Aunty Zhan now is able to walk a long way everyday.
