Chiropractic Philosophy in the Kansas City Crossroads

Dr. Jensen’s approach to chiropractic involves an innovative gentle technique used by many chiropractors across the country. While most chiropractic techniques work, Dr. Jensen does not feel the body needs to be put in a state of trauma to heal itself from trauma. He takes a whole body approach to wellness using both modern technology and ancient wisdom in his practice. Dr. Jensen’s priority is his patients. He and his staff work at being efficient in order to respect the time of his patients both inside and outside his office. The goal of the office is to provide QUALITY to the life of our patients….young…old….and in between.

Acupuncture Philosophy

Acupuncture is a 2,500 year old Chinese system of natural healing. Acupuncture focuses on restoring proper energy flow to organs, glands & tissue of the body through channels called Meridians. A disruption or imbalance in the energy flow (better known as Qi or Ch’i) is believed to be the cause of pathology. By stimulating certain points on the skin, the progress of a condition can not only be arrested but even reversed in some cases, bringing the patient back to health and normal function.

Many people associate acupuncture with needles. However, stimulation of the acupuncture points can be accomplished with a variety of methods. Electrical stimulation, deep or shallow penetrating needles, non-piercing needles (called tei-shin), finger-tip pressure (called shinshin), press patches, micro-current, laser, or moxibustion (burning of herbs over the points) are a small variety of ways to stimulate acupuncture points.
