A Veteran’s Story On Reducing Pain and Pain Killers with Acupuncture

“Dr. Gong, Qinhua, LAc is awesome! I’m a veteran with several issues. Instead of only taking the pain killers, which I have done for several years,  this is awesome! Working through the VA hurdles to have this treatment done is worth it, for me. I would recommend this place to veterans, and family over and over! I cannot say enough about holistic medicine!  Rebecca at the front desk is outstanding, she will assist with getting the information to you and works to make sure your insurance is well informed. Some private insurance will cover acupuncture!”

Samantha’s Story on Completely Stopping the Use of Medication

“When I was 14 years old, I began to withdraw. I became depressed, angry, and suicidal. I refused to go to school and was admitted to the hospital five times for 1-3 months.
