Auxiliary points: for type of deficiency of both qi and blood, Zusanli (ST36), and Sanyinjiao (SJ6) were added: for type of disharmony between Ying and Wei, Fengchi (GB20) and Hegu (LT4) were added; for type of stagnancy of qi and blood, Weiguan (TES) and Taichong (LR3) were added; for type of wind-heat stagnating collaterals, Yifeng (TH17) and Yanglingquan (GB34) were added.

10 out of 60 cases, which showed no remarkable effectiveness after two courses, injection of vitamin B1 and vitamin B12 to facial points combined with Hegu (LI4) point on opposite side was performed. Therapeutic results: 31 cases (49.2%) were cured, 15 cases (23.8%) markedly effective, 16 cases (25.4%) effective and 1 case (1.68) ineffective.
