Making people feel better

Thanks for the day off yesterday!
Here’s our latest letter of gratitude:
Anna, Thank you so much for making the extra effort to see me yesterday. It did make a big difference with the herbs and acu. I started to feel human again last nite around 5/6pm. Elijah asked me why I didn’t go to the doctor and I told I did go to my doctor. Her name is Anna, she’s Gily’s Mom. So thanks again, doc.
When you feel like you’re battling a fever, flu or feeling not well enough to enjoy the day, consider doing acupuncture and taking a Chinese herbal right for your condition.  The above letter is an example of what a highly effective acupuncture treatment can do for the immune system.  I treated this patient for  symptoms of “feeling hot,” even after having burned off a fever two nights prior when he had a 102 temperature.  No respiratory symptoms.  Just not feeling good due to overexertion at work and not getting enough sleep.  My prescriptions:  Gardenia Complex and after the heat is gone, Immune +.  This patient only received ONE treatment for this particular ailment.
I have two patients at my clinic today who presented with these improvements from our last treatment a month ago:
1.  The male patient informed me that his thumb, neck and shoulder pain decreased by 100% for 2 weeks. (That was his first treatment with me.)
2.  The female patient informed me that her cramps prior to her period decreased by 80%.  There were no clots.  The color was only bright red, no brown/dark red.  (She has only received 2 treatments so far.)

Special rate just for May 22, Friday: Add a bottle of herbs in stock for $30 (save $10) when patients come in for an acupuncture treatment.

Pre-order 5 bottles of herbs and save $50.  Pre-payment is required.

You must mention this email.  This special does not continue after May 22.

We’re happy to share our new FB site with the world!
Hi Anna,

I wanted to share the great news.  I brought new clothes this past weekend that are 4 sizes smaller then the clothes I wore the first time I saw you!  The last time I wore this size clothing was over 15 years ago!   My food cravings for sweets are totally gone and junk food, cookies, ice cream and the downfall of the world Chocolate does not interest me at all!!!!  Thank you again for helping me become healthy and beautiful.


Some people ask me that they’d like to do the same thing:
Well, Anne has been a committed patient since 2007.  I have also been a committed patient since 1994.  I lost a lot of weight.  I lost about 4 sizes and it still takes work to keep the figure right.  Can you lose weight?  Yes, you can!  With commitment to YOURSELF, YES, YOU CAN.
I was eating lunch today at Uoko Japanese restaurant.  The news was on and there was a lady being interviewed on how she helps people lose weight.  She doesn’t believe that it has much to do with the food intake.  I agree with her.  She explained that we have to face our fears.  We have to be honest with our emotional eating.  We have to confront our stresses in life.  I agree with all that she said.  In my practice, the ones who have the ability to state: Anna has helped me lose about 4+ sizes means that these people are honest with themselves about their lifestyles, their emotions, their ability or lack of ability to eat slowly and really realize what their relationship with food is.
I battled with food addictions for many years.  I know the dangers of a sweet tooth and craving salty foods consistently.  I am a self-employed acupuncturist, which means that I have to pull in my own income day after day.  Not only do I have to make a living, I have to follow my own advice day after day.  What’s that advice?  Take it easy, breathe, eat slowly, look at your food, acknowledge your food, chew your food, relax, drink room temperature water, eat often, laugh much, take a break in between bites, etc., etc.
Is it possible for us to relax and not stress out?  Is it possible to not eat at all when we are stressed out?  Am I a stress eater?  I can easily be a stress eater.  How much comfort do we find in food?  Many of us find a great deal of comfort in food.  When we’ve had a long day at work, people in front of our faces requiring the impossible from us, stress at home, stress to get somewhere on time, it’s easy for us to just say, “I’m going to eat my stress away.”
Is it possible for us to relax?  Is it possible for us to breathe and take it easy?  Is it possible for us to just be?
If you would like to lose weight, look at your life.
When you are ready for me to take a look at your life and HELP YOU, I’ve been waiting for you to call me.
All I ask is for your commitment and your time.  You did not just gain the weight overnight, so please don’t expect me to help you lose the weight overnight.  Be realistic.  Set goals.  I’ll be with you all the way, just like I’ve been with Anne since 2007 (focusing on weight loss since 2008) and I’m still there for her every step of the way.  Trust me, she looks really GOOD in her new clothes.  Was it worth it for her to commit herself to my assistance?  Well, re-read the testimonial and make your own judgment.  I believe she does find it very worthwhile to make time with me.
Qi Gong this Saturday for free to patients; $10 to non-patients

Some of our testimonials that can be found at:

What can 9 treatments in 19 days do for a person?

(This patient has received over 20 treatments now.  We are also helping her lose weight, as losing weight is her chief complaint.)

I have a female patient in her late 30s.  These are the improvements that she has made so far with her acupuncture treatments:

  • vaginal discharge has decreased dramatically; her discharge no longer has a foul odor and went from a yellowish color to whitish color during her time with me; this yellow discharge has been a problem for her for the past year
  • vaginal itchiness has significantly decreased; also has been with her for about a year
  • no more dryness/itchiness in eyes
  • she went from having constipation to having loose stool with a very foul odor in the beginning of her treatments; today she claims during her 9th treatment that she finally has had a regular bowel movement with no foul odor; no loose stool; no constipation
  • her external hemorrhoids have decreased in size by, at least, 30%; her MD informed her that the only way this would reduce in size or completely get rid of it would be with surgery
  • an overgrowth on the side of her face has decreased significantly; one can no longer tell that she had an issue there; her MD informed her that the only way that they could decrease the size would be through surgery
  • this patient has PCOS; her periods would normally come every 75 days; she has received her first period under my care and it came on day 71 = 4 days shorter (already)
  • instead of lasting 10 days long, her period only lasted 3 days
  • her quarter-size clots in her period decreased in size by, at least, 90%
  • the number of clots in her period decreased by, at least, 90%
  • her energy increased dramatically just within the first 2-3 treatments
  • prior to her period, she would normally get really irritable (she actually used the term “bitchy”); that didn’t happen this time-I am sure her husband was very happy about this improvement
  • prior to her period, she would normally have severe bloating; that didn’t happen this time
  • on the first day of her period, her menstrual blood is usually brown; this time her period was all bright red; only on the 4th day was there a tinge of brown; the period actually only lasted 3 days
  • she was so surprised that her period just “came and went,” as normally she would have severe premenstrual changes and her period would last so long that she’d have to count how many days she had her period in order to figure out when she would finally stop
In great health and happiness,
