He places one hand on Baihui (DU 20) and the other on Mingmeng (DU 4) and Dantian to dredge meridians and regulate Qi and blood. When Qi is brought to the hands, the operator strikes the patient's body for 9 times - especially the joints - to dredge meridians and promote smooth flow of Qi to kill pain.
