Main Piece: (rough translation from Indonesian)
When you are sick besides coining you can also do acupuncture.
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese tradition and method of healing where you lay flat either on your back or your front side and an experienced and trained physician sticks needles gently into you acupuncture/acupressure points.
They believe that by doing this you can “clean up” or “open up” your chakra / meridian points / flow of energy throughout the body.
They believe that this is because all sickness in some way shape or form block or disrupt the flow of energy through the body through these acupuncture points.
I always use acupuncture when I am sick and it always makes me feel better very fast.
Why do they know this piece?
Because this is a good way/method of healing for the body.
Where/Who did they learn it from?
From a lot of places, books, doctors, family practitioners.
What does it mean for them?
A very powerful Chinese tool and tradition to cure the body of anything.
Context of Performance:
Talking to grandmother over the phone.
I personally believe in acupuncture and a lot of my friends who had it before told me that it worked – but I never did it because I am very afraid of needles. This is a very well known Chinese tradition and way of healing.
