Introduction to Motion Acupuncture Therapy

Motion Acupuncture Therapy is a new acupuncture technique pioneered by Dr. Chen Decheng. It comprises five components: motion acupoints, motion needles, motion technique, motion mode and motion theory. This therapy integrates traditional acupuncture theories and techniques with modern knowledge in anatomy, histology, fasciology, kinesiology, and the physiological dynamics of muscles. Its goal is to stimulate and manipulate soft tissues through acupuncture, promoting self-healing processes to prevent and treat various diseases. Motion Acupuncture Therapy is renowned for its simplicity in selecting acupoints, precision in treatment, and rapid therapeutic effects.

The motion needle, patented by Dr. Chen Decheng, is characterized by a needle body with edges and a spiral structure. Special needle techniques, such as needle retention and lifting, are applied at motion acupoints—treatment points determined through the “three-step in one process.” Combined with patient-guided motion exercises under the supervision of a doctor, the treatment follows three key steps: foundation in finding acupoints, critical needle insertion, and the core focus on movement. This process aids in the repair of pathological fascia, muscle relaxation, and joint repositioning. Motion Acupuncture Therapy is primarily used to treat soft tissue injuries, chronic pain, joint issues, movement disorders, and related visceral diseases. The book “Motion Acupuncture Therapy” was published by People’s Health Publishing House in 2020 and has received acclaim from experts and colleagues in the field, both domestically and internationally.
