  • >>DR Zhen Zheng: Acupuncture involves stimulating body walls like skin and muscle to produce

  • therapeutic effect.

  • It can be used for a very wide range of conditions - acute pain, chronic pain, and respiratory

  • conditions, skin problems, and gastric problems.

  • So if you can imagine your body is the city. So in the city there are big roads, highways,

  • there are small roads, there are lane ways. So if everything is fine, then traffic flows

  • nicely. But when there's a car that breaks down, the traffic will jam up. And if the

  • broken car is not fixed, the traffic jam will become worse and worse.

  • Let's imagine that in the body there are meridians. And in these meridians we have chi flow - we

  • have energy flow. Say, for instance, if you hurt your back, the local muscle will become

  • very tight. And this kind of tightness is a way of blocking the chi flow.

  • So to restore that, to reduce that problem, we have to put needles into the local area

  • to help the broken car in a way, but also we will put needles away from the lower back,

  • to divert traffic and restore the chi flow.
