Acupuncture is part of the ancient healing practice in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Medical practitioners believed the human body has over 2,000 acu points connected by meridians. The meridian pathways form a network in the body that transports energy, or more specifically, qi (pronounced chee). Disruption or blockage in the meridians may cause pain and illness to occur. Acupuncture, by inserting thin, metallic and sterilized needles into certain acu pressure points, can restore the natural balance and energy flow of the body, and reinstate health and vitality to life.
Electrical acupuncture (adding electric current or stimulation) is recommended for enhanced effect. Dr. Chen is also a specialist in motion acupuncture, a very unique and specialized treatment method that requires special needling and active movement for the patient.
