was very skeptical about acupuncture ever working but after having
headaches every day for a few months with no relief from western
medicine I had to try something. Now I have Asian friends whom
told me it works so I tried the acupuncture. After about the third
treatment I actually started to feel better. A few more treatments
later my headaches were gone and I did not change anything in
my life to cause this. So later when I strained a muscle in my
back I returned and this time only after two treatments the muscle
pain was gone. This has created a believer in me that acupuncture
actually works. I would recommend anyone to at least try it for
a few treatments and see by yourself how affective acupuncture
can be. Currently I am seeking acupuncture to help with other
medical problems and so far it is working. It is amazing to me
that something like acupuncture truly works. JUST TRY IT."
am a 58 year old male, who was very active for my age until about
7 years ago when I started with low back pain. I had done the
gamut of orthopedic doctors, and physical therapy treatments which
helped but only for a brief time. In July 2006 I was diagnosed
with ¡°severe spinal stenosis.¡± A condition that only gets progressively
worse until surgery is generally the only remedy. I also had re-developed
bronchitis in my right shoulder (a condition I had treated with
physical therapy about 5 years ago). Not knowing where to turn
(I certainly did not want surgery), but I did want to get some
relief from the pain, so I started looking on the internet and
came upon Tao¡¯s Acupuncture & Herb Center.¡± After doing some
research, I decided that I was going to give acupuncture a try.
my first treatment with Dr. Tao, I noticed a tremendous relief
from the pain I had been suffering with for all these years, not
only in my lower back, but also in my shoulder. I would recommend
acupuncture to any one who is thinking of an alternative medicine
Tao is a very caring, compassionate and patient individual. I
do not know where I would be today if it were not for Dr. Tao
and his TCM and herb therapy. It works! Thank You Dr. Tao."
experienced pain in my left shoulder, radiating to my left arm
and also to my chest. I had electro-cardiogram and
nuclear stress test, my heart is o.k. but a cervical MRI diagnosed
advanced DJD at C5-6 and C6-7 with spurring and severe foraminal
stenosis at C5-C6 and moderate stenosis at C6-7. The alternate
was surgery or pain killers and anti-inflammatory drugs. Both
of these drugs were extremely pain to my stomach.
level of pain was 8-9 scale on 10 bases which is the worst. With
drugs bring it to a level 5-6 only. After 2 cycles of acupuncture
treatment (10 visits is one cycle) with Chinese herbs, my level
of pain down to 1-2 scale of 10 and my arm only has minor sensations
now. This is tolerable as compared to the discomfort experienced
before coming to see Dr. Tao.
As an additional benefit, Dr.Tao prescribed an excellent herb
for my chronic sinus condition which totally relieved my allergy
symptoms for years."

am a 32 year old woman as a nurse when I was in Beijing, China.
In the begins of 2002 , I developed shoulder pain which is in
my left sided around the insertion of the trapezius muscle. This
occurred after sleeping on it and waking up the next morning.
It lasted for three months originally, in the past month it became
progressive worse, the pain started to bother me even I sits in
a little longer time. I had an x-ray done which shows normal.
After I finished a cycle -12 acupuncture treatment with oral taken
herbal medicine, I have totally relief and my pain is gone."
am a 51 year old former medical secretary. I am being treated
for my pain secondary to a left distal acromial fracture sustained
while at work. I was reaching for a chair and the chair rolled
and struck my outstretched hand, causing the fracture of the left
acromion. Over the years I tried numerous medications, however,
most of these could only be taken transiently because of side
effects. An MRI shows I have a full thickness defect involving
supraspinatus tendon and a partial thickness tear of the infraspinatus
tendon and left shoulder confirmed the full thickness rotator
cuff tear. I received surgery on Feb 14, 2000 at Sacred Heart
Hospital. Unfortunately, my shoulder pain even gets better like
50% from constant pain to intermediate pain, however, some additional
radiates up to the base of my neck and down to my elbow with weakness
when I used my hand for my work. My course has been difficult
because of failure to respond to physical therapy, or even worsening.
I also had intolerance to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
with severe GI symptoms after only two to three days, or no relief
at all. Due to I have M.S. for years and unacceptable for nerve
blocks due to arthritic damage in my spine.
had been treated by Dr. Tao through my orthopedic Doctor's referral
from a three times a week for a couple months now. I am glad to
say the acupuncture treatment with Chinese herbal patch/ointment
is very effective. I could tolerate more of my pain and work longer
even sometimes without taken any of my medication. I hope people
like my condition could try this alternative medicine for it is
very helpful and not need to worry about any further surgery and
the side effect of medication."
injured my back in 15 years ago and required surgery to remove
a cervical disc. Since then, my spine has further deteriorated
due to spinal stenosis from c-1 to c-7. This condition resulted
my mobility in my neck and painful back spasms and numbness in
my extremities which also caused sleep loss and inability to many
dimple tasks, particular move my arm above shoulder.
spinal epidurals, pain and antispasmodic medications made my condition
tolerable, nothing seems to give me relief. My neurololgist Dr.
Spikol, suggested try acupuncture and referred me to see Dr. Tao.
After four weeks of ten treatments, the painful spasms and numbness
are gone. I began to
notice marked improvement by my third visit. I could sleep to
eight hours a night and planning my first fly fishing trip this
year. Thank you, Dr. Tao."

on mother's day in May, 1999. I was hit while sittiing behind
the wheel of a vintage car. I was lunged forward into the wheel
with damage to my ribs and
shoulder and some low back pain initially which became worse.
I took x-rays and MRI and found have damage at
L5 to S1. At first, I tried Vioxx and Naprosyn with poor results
in the past and Celebrax with GI symptoms. Physical therapy was
tried and allowed me to bend and move. Prior to that, I even couldn't
sit, stand or lie without
crying. I have seen Dr. James Weis who felt that I have a degerative
disc disease and referred to see Dr. Tao for acupuncture. After
the second treatment, I already felt that I had the best relief
for two years. After the four visits, I already felt that I have
on nothing for pain now. Even the projected course of treatment
is still ongoing, but I have no worry about my back problem any

months and it has not been helpful. I also see a massage

back pain to my lower leg

shoulder pain I have endured for the past five years is relieved
by you which is the only successful treatment after years of trying
traditional medical doctors. My shoulder pain has been constant
and of varying intensity ranging from minor irritation to unbearable.
Everything I have tried, including surgery, physical therapy,
and medication has been ineffective. I've seen many doctors, including
three orthopedic surgeons with no results. After only one treatment
by you, the pain has gone completely. I can't begin to relate
how much this means to me. I can only say thanks again."

am a 45 year old executive secretary at Lehigh Valley hospital
injured in a motor vehicle accident in May, 1993. I have been
through numerous pain management treatments and consultations
even in Philadelphia. After I seen Dr. Tao for acupuncture treatments
from July through September of 2000, he already successfully controlled
the pain which includes numbness down to the arms, inner aspects
of my legs to my feet, burning and muscle spasm to my arm, leg
and shoulder. I tried different medications, however, it only
caused me drowsiness or upset stomach. I am so grateful to Dr.
Tao that so many modalities have been ineffective, so expensive
and caused me many side effects, he still could relieved my pain
without any medication."
