I am qualified acupuncturist - the redness caused around an acupuncture point when needled is 'Erythema', redness of the skin caused by increased blood flow in the superficial capillaries. It occurs with a skin injury which is essentially what the needle is causing as it punctures the skin. However, in traditional terms its interpreted as the Qi/Chi at that point starting to flow and move more easily.

Best wishes,
