What to Expect
Dr. Jing is trained in both Chinese and Japanese forms of acupuncture. Her treatments consist of a combination of acupuncture and tuina (Chinese Massage). If needed other Traditional Chinese Medicinal tools are used to bring balance. Acupuncture is a safe, painless and effective way of treating health imbalances.
Inserting and manipulating fine filiform needles puts pressure onto specific points on the body to relieve physical and mental imbalances. Pressure points are situated on 12 meridians along which qi (life force energy) flows. The practitioner uses all five senses to observe a patient's state of health. They will specifically read the tongue and heart beat as a reference to asses where imbalances sit, and how it is relative to the rest of the body. Acupuncture treats the cause, not just the symptom of a problem.
