In Chinese medicine, we strongly believe one should nourish the three treasures. These treasures are Jing, Qi, and Shen. Jing is the most essential. It’s the stem cells and reproductive fluids that represent pure potential. Jing has the ability to literally turn into anything. It is like a baby that has yet to grow tall, or begin walking... nothing but endless possibilities. It’s the wonderful combination of genetics, and fate, and the vitality of our parents at the time of our conception, all written down in our cellular code.
This very concentrated and potent energy is what essential oils are. They are the Jing of the plant. In my clinic I use them on many people, but most frequently on children, because they too, are also very close to their essential nature. Many qualities of the essential oils have therapeutic functions that correspond to the systems of meridians and acupuncture points.
Treatments may include oils held on the points in the style of light touch, Jin Shin Acupressure, and may or may not include traditional needling techniques. This provides a great alternative for those who do not wish to be needled.
