一名66 歲婦女中風後一直服用西藥，五年後至中醫醫院接受針刺治療其中風後遺症。主訴右頸、臉頰及右側上下肢麻、僵緊無力，在持續接受針刺治療2 年3 個月的過程中，患者肢體上的筋結逐漸鬆解，身體麻感的範圍逐漸由面縮小成線狀，然後再擴張成較淺的面，以至最後麻感消失。其改善情形頗類似經絡學說由深部逐漸向淺層發展的模式。A 65-year old woman with CVA and treated with western medicine for 5 years came to Taipei City Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine to receive acupuncture therapy for her sequelae of apoplexy. She complained paralysis and stiffness on her right neck and cheek, paralysis, tightness and weakness on her upper and lower limbs of the right side. After receiving acupuncture therapy regularly and continuously for 2 years and 3 months, she felt that her whole body had freed up, and that the tendon knot had gradually loosened. In the beginning, the area of tightness and paralysis shrank into lines, and then the lines receded and disappear finally. This kind of progressive pattern reflects Jing-Luo Theory. Recovery begins in the deep Jing-Luo and gradually spreads to the surface of the body.
