Zhizhen® Therapy textbook

Since I have the ability to, my goal is to help make people feel better. I have had this dream from a young age which rooted back to when I would see people suffering from poor living conditions. I knew I can never turn my back to all of that, and my heart ached. This is why I have spent years and years in building my healing business. Helping people lead a pain-free life physically can help empower people to also have a better emotional outlook.

It’s always been my intention to become an influential leader who helps create change in this world. It’s my hope that Needle-free finger acupuncture is a start to helping humanity see that healthcare is accessible to all; I hope to teach many practitioners this method so it spreads far and wide.

- Professor Jianying Chen
