Holding Sedating and Strengthening Points

When holding my own acupuncture strengthening or sedating points, does it matter if my hand rests on my body, or should I be certain that the only parts touching are just my fingertips on the points I’m holding?

I tend to tell people to just have their fingers touching because the fingers direct the energy. However, as long as the fingers are doing the directing, sometimes the hand may actually enhance the process. At any rate, do not worry as long as your fingers have a firm connection.
