New England Wellness Solutions: Making Better Health Easy

Weymouth Club now offers acupuncture with Dr. Jimmy Chung. Acupuncture has been employed as a health care modality for over 3,000 years.

Practitioners of this ancient medical practice have experienced clinical success with a variety of health issues.

Today, Acupuncture is receiving wide acceptance as a respected, valid, and effective form of health care. 

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a complex branch of ancient traditional medicine, but its practical principles and methods are easily understood:

  • Fourteen major energy channels called meridians course through the human body including the head, arms, hands, legs, feet, torso, and internal organs.
  • A subtle energy called Chi or Qi circulates via the meridians to all parts of the body, even the most remote cells.
  • Chi is the vital force, the presence of which separates the living from the dead. Its balanced, unimpeded flow is critical to sound health.
  • Any misdirection, blockage, or other derangement of the amount, flow, or balance of Chi may result in pain, dysfunction, and ill health.
  • With Acupuncture needles, or other means, the acupuncturist stimulates certain points (acupoints) along the course of the meridians. Such stimulation helps restore the normal balance and flow of Chi so organs and bodily systems can work together in harmony as intended. This sets the stage for the body to repair itself and maintain its own health.

What are the main objectives of Acupuncture Treatment?

The main objectives are to relieve pain and other systems, strengthen the immune system, and balance harmonize, and integrate functions of the organs with each other, making for a unified, healthy person.

About Dr. Spencer Green: D.TCM, LAc

Dr. Green is LAc Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Licensed Acupuncturist, and Licensed Chinese Herbalist.

“I believe that a person is fundamentally whole. Illness develops out of an imbalance, if addressed precisely, can be overcome. Some imbalances may be long-standing; some have just begun. Through the use of Chinese Medicine and various other techniques, each person is able to restore balance, health and well-being into their life.”

Dr. Greene grew up in a small town in Florida. His first exposure to East Asian culture was through a demonstration of Shaolin Kung Fu. 13 years old at the time, the Shaolin demonstrated feats that seemed truly superhuman. This kindled Dr. Greene’s fire of enthusiasm to study and explore East Asian culture and thought. Along this path Dr. Greene has received his Doctorate in Traditional Chinese Medicine from the
University of Bridgeport in Connecticut. He has studied and done hospital rotations at
Liaoning University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Shenyang China.
