  • Acupuncture is a medical tradition dating back more than 3,000 years and among the oldest healing practices in the world. It is part of an integrated system of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

    Jenny has further studied into European style auricular therapy and combines the European style of Dr. Paul Nogier (he is known as Father of auriculotherapy) discovery of VAS (Vascular Autonomic Signal) pulse with Chinese medicine auricular therapy.

    The principle of Auriculotherapy is based on the fact that a point or a zone on the ear corresponds to an organ or a system. The mechanism of action is a reflex mechanism.

    Using a detector and taking your radial pulse at the same time detects the ear reflex (pathological point). When a pathological point is found, subtle change (the VAS pulse) is noticed on your pulse, and then we needle the reflex area to correct the blockage. The feedback will be precise since your body is giving the feedback via the VAS pulse.

    This technique is not practiced in common due to delicate technique in finding the VAS pulse.
