Chen Jung (Jennifer) Robinson
I first became interested in acupuncture about ten years ago. I was sick with asthma and looking for effective treatment as I was disappointed with conventional treatment of injections that were only making my condition worse. A friend from China suggested that I take an acupuncture class to learn more about it and see if it would help me with my problem. With my long term interest in martial arts such as Qi-Gong and Tai Chi, as well as in Chinese medicine, (I was born in Taiwan and came to the United States when I was 30) I decided to check in to it. I didn't know at that time, that I was embarking upon my life's work. In 1993, I attended the Academy of Chinese Culture and Health Science in Oakland where I received my M.S. degree in Chinese Medicine.
I don't have a particular area of concentration as that isn't the essence of Chinese Medicine. Here we look at the whole person, the whole body, to find ways to restore balance to the system. I have genuine concern for people's suffering and a deep desire to help them in the best ways I can. I constantly search for effective methods to restoring and supporting health and wellness, as I don't want to be limited to using just one method. Detoxification, for example, plays such an important part in this process. People come across lots of pesticides as well as toxic chemicals from household cleaning products, and heavy metals from air we breathe, our water pipes and even from every day personal care products. The body is so backed up that the natural body can't handle the load. Through detoxification, people report that they have a lot more energy and feel like themselves again.
The certified organic skin care product line that I carry is wonderful for everyone, and very important for anyone experienced health challenges as the ingredients nurture and nourish the skin without the use of chemicals and additives. Our body absorbs significant amounts of what we put on our skin. With certified organic food rapidly becoming the nutrition of choice by health conscious people, why would we accept any less for our skin?
