just wanted to say thank you!! When my doctor told me to try acupuncture
I was very doubtful and then my aunt recommended you!! I wasn't
sure what to expect!!
are very professional, very knowledgeable, and I felt we had a
common ground - "to get me better!!" Although, I didn't
get fully better I was very impressed!!
I would recommend you to anyone and if I ever had another problem
I would try acupuncture first before I tried anything else!!!!
Thank you, Dr. Tao!!!

never truly understand the phrase "excruciating pain"
until I injured my back and experienced the effects of a herniated
disc, the MRI shows I have a large disc herniation in my right
L4-L5 & L5-S1. Physically, I suffered from intense hip and
leg pain in the middle of the night. I could not stand, walk,
sit or sleep without feeling some degree of pain.
Even though I was in a physical therapy program, I needed something
more to manage the pain. The
high doses of Ibuprofen I was taking gave me no lasting pain relief,
so I turned to acupuncture.
I felt the back and hip pain slowly melt away with each consecutive
acupuncture session. The acupuncture sessions were extremely relaxing
and Tao's bedside manner is calm and caring - the
perfect combination for someone in near-tears pain. With Traditional
Chinese Medicine my pain went away, stayed
away and I feel great!"
"I am a 81 year old woman with osteoarthritis for years
in my hands, neck, lumbar spine and both hips. In order to avoid
medication of NSAD to upset my stomach, raise my blood pressure
and the concern of damaging my kidney, I decided to try acupuncture.
After about 5 treatments, I feel I have almost no pain at all,
the spasm of by trapezius muscle also much reduced. I am glad
I could maintain this health condition without side effects."
am an 86 year old woman has diffused pain in my right upper
thigh, both knees and the left foot. My orthopedic surgeon-DR.
Patrick Respet who felt that I was not acceptable a a surgical
candidate for replacement of the knee joint. My left foot felt
as though it was a block of wood. After several acupuncture treatment
with herbal patch and herbal liquid, I could return the feeling
in my left foot. And after I finished one course treatment which
has 12 visits totally. I feel my general condition has improved
from previous unbearable to bearable condition. And I am glad
to I could live with that."
am a 54 year old former executive worked in the school of social
studies at Columbia University. Six years ago after I fell while
I carrying a puppy on my deck at home in New York. I slipped on
my wet deck and came down on my right hip and gluteal region.
In addition to my hip pain, I also had fibromyalgia. I had tried
on aspirin with some relief. Relafen caused insomnia and another
nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug caused gastrointestinal pain.
I had difficulty sleeping secondary to the pain.. I tried acupuncture
initially two times a week and now has tapered down to every two
weeks. I used acupuncture with electrical stimulation and oral
taken Chinese patents herbs. The symptom already under controlled
now. Even it occasionally flared up if I walked a lot, still could
relieve pain by a little more intensive treatment."
"I am 79 year old retired nursing home employee, has
a history of arthritis for several years. An MRI shows I had spinal
stenosis with degenerative arthritis in my back. I walked in a
limp with a can. Both of my hip are very pain, the pain could
radiates down to my leg and foot. My left side worse. I took extra
strength Tylenol by DR's prescription, however, just a little
help. The pain could bothered my sleeping when I turn over my
body. Until the fourth acupuncture treatment, my left side sciatica
pain had subsided and my right sciatica pain also much improved.
I know my condition is tough and very pleased in such a short
time, my pain could become manageable."
