Just finished the first 64 movements of Wild Goose Qigong! I have had a wonderful experience from our first day of class. With my previous training in Taekwondo, my movements were rigid, and therefore not conducive for Qi flow. With Qigong, I have become more relaxed and have felt greater sensations of well-being and invigoration following each practice. Learning about the reasoning behind each movement significantly enriched my understanding about Qi flow and our many meridians. In addition, Dr. Chen analyzed my diet and shared information about “hot” energy foods and “cold” energy foods. Dr. Chen and her husband Dr. Wei Chen are remarkable in every way: inspiring and always helping you to learn more about improving health. I give my highest recommendations for Dr. Chen!
I have visited several Chiropractic clinics in both north liberty and Coralville, but quite frankly Back 2 Act offered best experience among them all. I had my first appointment with Dr.Chen when my leg started to feel really sore and painful. Unlike other chiropractic clinics where doctors spend less than ten minutes with cure patients and most treatment is done with machines, Dr.Chen’s session averagely lasts an hour covering massage, electrotherapy, and many other types of Chiropractic practices. Knowledgeable and responsible, after a whole cycle of therapy, Dr.Chen has successfully treated my injured leg. Dr.Chen also provided me with a variety of exercise and advice even after I got done with the treatment. If you are seeking a professionally trained, knowledgeable and responsible doctor, then I would strongly recommend talk to Dr.Chen.
I’m a new patient of Dr. Chen – she is a fantastic chiropractor and wellness practitioner. I highly recommend her!
It was a fun visit I had after I hurt my back muscle a few weeks ago. Dr. Chen went through a very thorough diagnosis process with me and identified the cause of issue. Her explanation was clear and convincing. Then she performed some tricks on my back and taught me a few exercises I can do at work and home. The problem was much released after the first visit and was completely gone after a follow-up. I practiced the exercises by myself, which are really effective in preventing the problem from happening again. I feel she wants to see her patient recover as soon as possible and stay healthy by themselves instead of having them visiting her more often to generate bigger revenue streams. I totally trust her and highly recommend going to her office when you have a need. She will get you back to act probably sooner than you expect by yourself.
The treatment for my back pain was very successful. The pain was gone after my last visit. It came back a little bit occasionally due to my work but went away soon after I did the exercise she taught me. I would highly recommend Dr. Chen’s services.
My back pain bothered me a long time. I always thought it was my stomach ulcer caused the back pain until I met Dr. Chen. She checked me carefully and told me that my spine had problem. After the first treatment, my back pain was gone! Amazing! I received four treatments totally and I do not remember the taste of back pain now:-)J I am learning the Wild Goose Qigong from her to ensure that back pain would not come back. Thank you! Dr. Chen!
I had neck and shoulder pain. Dr. Chen had recommended Wild Goose Qi Gong as treatment. Having completed the class, I am happy to say that my neck and shoulder pains have gone down. I am looking forward to obtaining acupuncture treatment in the near future from her. Dr. Chen is an extraordinary chiropractor, she has an uplifting and wonderful energy always.
Dr. Chen is VERY considerate and professional. She carefully examined everything before she provided treatment on my neck and shoulder. She also suggested some helpful exercises to me.
I had some knee problems and after my visits with Dr. Chen, my knee felt better than ever before! I would definitely recommend Dr. Chen’s services
I had a very relaxing and invigorating experience with Dr. Chen for an acupuncture session. I had never experienced it before, but I would recommend it to anyone! Dr. Chen is wonderful!
Dr Chen’s Chiropractic practice is one of the best you can find. The office atmosphere is very relaxing and welcoming. Dr Chen is very passionate and knowledgeable and you feel that personal professional relationship with her. Highly recommended.
I am very active playing baseball, golf and softball every week. Dr. Chen and back 2 Act are both great! I had never had acupuncture before and was very hesitant but Dr. Chen was very educational and made the process very enjoyable, I would highly recommend this business.
I recently had the opportunity to take part in Dr. Jia Mei Chen’s Qi Gong classes. It has been a great and new experience to me. The exercises helped me to relax not only during the time of exercise but also I felt like I maintained that level feeling of relaxation throughout the day. Being a pianist, I have to deal with a lot of physical and emotional stress and I can honestly say that the Qi Gong exercises had a positive influence on me dealing with those kind of stress. I did not get as nervous as I used to get before a performance- especially on the days when I practiced the Qi exercises. On top of that my posture has improved and I became more flexible too. Dr. Chen is a wonderful and encouraging teacher and I would definitely recommend her Qi Gong classes to everyone, especially musicians.
My first time visiting Dr. Chen’s office was a great experience. She showed me how to have a correct posture and taught me a few exercises I could do while sitting at work (since I’m at a computer all day). She even posted some further information about what we talked about during our session on this Facebook page later that week. I feel that she really cares for her patients at a deeper level. As Dr. Chen treated and worked on my back a little, she was very gentle (yet very firm — I asked if she worked out her hands. ha!). I highly recommend going to her Chiropractic & Wellness Center.
I began to experience lower back pain from carrying my son around all day. It was a dull, annoying pain that lasted all day and even got worse when I’d lay down. I had no break from the pain – that’s when I started to see Dr. Chen. After the very first visit, I noticed an immediate relief, and subsequent visits resulted in me being completely freed from the pain. I’m so thankful for Dr. Chen and would recommend her to anyone.
Dr. Chen is a very talented, caring, and detailed chiropractic doctor. She is one of the only few chiropractic doctors that combine knowledgeable and evidence based practice in chiropractic medicine. She is very informative, thorough, and passionate about what she does. I was glad to participate in the Wild Goose Qi Gong classes and learn meditation using Qi. It is very interesting and relaxing dynamic meditation. I highly recommend Dr. Chen & her wellness center.
Today was my first experience with Wild Goose Qigong and I am a fan! Dr. Chen and her husband, Dr. Wei Chen are very knowledgeable in this practice and I look forward to learning more about it from them! Thank you so much!
They say history repeats itself. It is absolutely true! I had the pleasure of being introduced to the ancient art (health) of Qi after becoming quite ill and needed to regain my strength. I’ve always had a strong inner spirit and faith. I do believe my spirit told my “why not try” when my doctor suggested this!
We met on Saturdays and I was pleased to find two others who were open minded. We started with a history lesson which made total sense and so interesting. Then we began our experience with Qi. We were to learn 1-64 movements. I thought I would not be able to remember, but our instructors were so patient and kept going over and over our movements. We studied 8 moves of the 64 each Saturday. They taught us Not to worry, that the Qi would come with our daily practice. So I learned to Believe and Practice! I am a diabetic and Qi has helped me so much with my balance, flexibility, breathing, meditation, relaxing, strengthening my muscles and getting a warming unstressful workout for my entire body. Who says they can’t teach an old dog new tricks! I know someday I’ll be as fluid as my instructors. (As much as a 65 year old can be!) We don’t always need to understand the working of Qi, but I can guarantee that it is working for me!
I can’t THANK my instructors enough for their encouragement and dedication in helping us to achieve a healthier mind and body: Qi is something all should embrace!”
With Sincere Appreciation,
Back 2 Act is the place to go for Chiropractic visits. Dr. Chen is a well-trained, passionate, and caring provider. I recommend highly to anyone. I also enrolled in the Qigong class. It was amazing!
I thoroughly enjoyed learning the first form of Wild Goose Qi Gong from Drs. Jia Mei and Wei Chen. Due to my busy schedule in school – 20 credits and stressful exams every week – I have experienced burnout on a few occasions. I have found that the meditative nature of practicing Wild Goose Qi Gong has helped me to avoid burnout by relieving stress and rebuilding energy and motivation. I was a beginner and had not heard much of Qi Gong before taking the course, but the adept instruction by both Drs. Chen allowed me to learn some of the form’s finer nuances. Thank you for the wonderful experience!
Dr. Chen is a very caring doctor. She is genuinely concerned about people’s heath. Her center/office is simple, elegant, and nicely decorated. I have attended the Wild Goose Qi Gong class that co-taught by Dr. Chen and her husband Dr. Wei Chen. They both are very knowledgeable (Qi movement, Wei’s martial art, and of course, medical knowledge), and are great teachers. Not only teaching the forms, they also discuss the theory behind the forms, which I found very helpful. The Wild Goose Qi Gong is very similar to Tai-Chi, to my opinion. While Tai-Chi forms focus on martial art techniques, Wild Goose forms focus on the inner Qi movements. In many of the first 64 movements I learn (say, about half), I can feel the Qi movement in my body. The class is Highly recommended.
I really appreciate Dr. Chen for her kindness and her genuine care and concern for her patients. She is a wonderful person and very knowledgeable in her field. We are very privileged to know her & her husband. They are a wonderful couple who really believe in what they teach and desire to help others. My husband and I enjoy the Qi gong class very much. With our busy schedules, practicing it together each day, gives us time of refreshment.
While visting my son in Iowa, I visited the back2act clinic
and was relieved of the stress in my shoulders.
I look forward to coming to Iowa again and I know after the flight there this wonderful, thorough doctor will be there too! I am a fan.
I have been seeing Dr. Chen for a few months for lower back and hip issues. The combination of massage, stretching and chiropractic care has made a huge difference in my health. I am able to work and enjoy life again, all thanks to Dr. Chen. I would highly recommend Dr. Chen to anyone looking for an intelligent, caring health care provider.
Dr. Chen is the best! I had never been to a chiropractor and didn’t know what to expect. I was having some low back pain and was concerned about my chronic knee issues (meniscal tear years ago). I didn’t want these problems to impact the upcoming ski season. Dr. Chen’s adjustments had me waking up without back pain for the first time in months. She also gave me some simple exercises to strengthen my leg muscles, and my knee has done great through 6 days of pretty hard skiing (many more skiing days are planned!) Her gentle demeanor made it all easy and comfortable for me. Thanks Dr. Chen!
As a heavy computer user, I have chronic pain in my neck and tension on my upper body. The moment when walking into the clinic, I was greeted by Dr. Chen with warmth. She is patient, gentle, and kind. Dr. Chen thoroughly took my history and examined my neck closely. Unlike my previous chiropractor who adjusted my neck hurriedly and forcefully, Dr. Chen spent almost half hour using deep tissue massage technique to loosen the tensed muscles before adjusting. Her technique is wonderful and I felt immediately better afterwards. I’ll definitely go back again. Highly recommend.
This is my first time to see a chiropractic doctor, and it’s hard for me to believe that my poor posture was the reason for the numbness and tingling of my fingers. Dr. Chen’s treatment was comfortable and worked for me. I enjoyed the time while I was at Dr. Chen’s clinic. The exercise she taught me was easy to follow and I could practice at home or at work. Her clinic was convenient located in Coralville and she is ready working with my schedule. Now I know that I have a reliable resource to go to, it just give me a peaceful mind.
Dr. Chen is serious about taking care of her patients. I played wallyball and hurted my knee. After a session, she sent me “tips” via email that I could use at home. The tips are a few exercises to strength my muscle around knees. She even reminded me to get new jogging shoes to protect my knees! Thanks Dr. Chen.
