According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), healthy bodily functions require a balanced flow of Qi (Mandarin for “energy”) throughout the body. Thus, illness and disease are associated with an imbalanced distribution of Qi caused by blockages in the paths where Qi usually flows. Blocked Qi can be thought of as a river that is blocked by a dam.
Jenny palpates carefully to locate blockages of Qi. Then she inserts acupuncture needles at selected acupuncture points to unblock the Qi so that the “dam” is removed and the energy can flow freely, promoting healthy life functions. Clinical trials have also shown that the needle techniques used in acupuncture cause the body to send signals to the brain to release anti-inflammatory substances (which reduce swelling and promote healing) and painkilling endorphins (which reduce pain).
