Professor Chen developed peripatetic acupuncture. Peripatetic acupuncture alters a person’s temperature in order to treat a variety of disorders. The change in temperature positively effects the nervous system, immune system, circulation system, endocrine system and lymph system, maximising the bodies functions. The practitioner will either cool the temperature of certain body areas by three to six degrees or warm it up by two degrees.
Advantages of heating technique- In some patients peripatetic acupuncture will be used to improve the circulation in one particular area. The treatment time varies between 30 and 45 minutes and the increase of temperature can be beneficial for treating a variety of problems including depression, liver problems, fatigue syndrome, infertility and much more besides.
Advantages of cooling technique- Cooling the entire body temperature or a specific area will help detox the body. It is also a beneficial treatment for hot flushes, herpes zoster, hyperactivity and irritability. In special circumstances intense cooling may be used to offer protection to the organs, tissues and cells.

The benefits of this ground breaking treatment are endless and can even be effective in the immediate alleviation of asthma or disappearance of joint pain. A patient receiving peripatetic acupuncture will not experience strong pain and indeed many patients finding it extremely relaxing.
A number of clinical studies have been carried out in order to prove the effectiveness of peripatetic acupuncture. Infrared imaging showed that 98% of participants involved in the study reacted with either a rapid increase or decrease of inner temperature. Some volunteers had localized temperature change whilst others experienced a change in the entire body. The results of the study showed positive changes for all patients.
