Default heat and dit da

An acupuncturist told me that in Chinese medicine, they never use ice for injuries because it supposedly pushes the injury deeper and can cause arthritis in the area years later. I don't always listen to everything TCM folks say because 1) they say some really weird things and 2) there's no way to definitively prove it was the ice and not the original injury that caused the arthritis. However, I tried her recommendation (dit da jow topically with a hot-as-you-can-stand towel over it) and it felt SO good and brought immediate relief. Anyone else tried anything like this? I thought it was more fun than trying to figure out how something can still hurt when it's iced to numbness.
