Acupuncture for Pain Management


Lenice Balier’s Pain Relief Story

“I was fortunate to hear Edmund Gibson at one of his Seminars. I was so impressed. I booked on for 3 treatments. My health history has been years of depression, aching muscles and a foggy head (never clear). I hadn’t laughed in a very long time. After the 1st treatment, I was able to get out of bed without the usual struggle. After the 2nd treatment, the pain (was) gone and more exciting – it was so nice to laugh again. After the 3rd treatment, I feel “So good”. “Oh, how I wish I had met this wonderful man years ago, why did I need […]

Francesca’s Story of Pain Relief

“Dr. Ruonan Zhang has been my savior. I had a chronic case of Sciatica and Piriformis syndrome that causes me to experience excruciating and unyielding pain for over a year and a half. During this time, I had two steroid shots within six months of each other, went to massage therapy, physical therapy and continued working with my wonderful chiropractor gaining only temporary and intermittent relief. I then read about acupuncture and decided to give it a try. UNBELIEVABLE…it worked!!! Dr. Zhang told me I would come for ten sessions. After each session, the degree and location of the pain began to change. I was finding […]

X.C.’s Story on TMS, Psychotherapy, Acupuncture, and Nutrition on Depression

“I have been suffering from depression for about two years. I was not feeling myself and would sometimes cry for hours. This summer I decided to have TMS treatment along with Yang’s comprehensive care program when I was visiting my sons in the U.S. After 6 weeks of daily treatments of TMS, acupuncture, psychotherapy, nutrition (therapy) and other services, I feel so much better.  When I first came, I could barely walk 20 minutes. Now I take a walk for more than an hour every day and I am full of energy and very optimistic about my future…”

Tom’s Story

“When I was in the 7th grade I began to get very bad headaches. I was actually afraid when these headaches would come because they hurt so badly I thought I had a serious brain tumor. The doctor at that time said they were from sinus and also that I may need eyeglasses. As I grew older and in high school, my headaches got worse. When I got my headaches I would have to go to bed. I needed to get out of lighted areas. I used to put hot towels on my head and close the blinds to make […]

Alvin’s Story

“I was recommended to the Yang Institute by Dr. Yang’s reputation. I came to Yang Institute with severe and crippling back and leg pains. I tried epidural injections and many different medications to find relief. The condition was only getting worse. Before I saw Dr. Yang, the pain lasted for a year in duration. I was immobilized by the pain, unable to walk easily, and unable to pursue recreational activities; the pain was excessive and crippling. After receiving weekly acupuncture and herbal treatments, almost immediately I have seen a difference. Overall, in about 4 weeks, the pain lessened, and in […]

Joseph’s Story

“Sunday November 26, 2006, I had a sneezing fit around noon. After the last sneeze, my back, the lowest region, felt like it was struck by lightning. I had the most intense pain I have ever felt. I went to the floor immediately, and could not move for several minutes. After dealing with constant pain for a few days, I went to the emergency room on Tuesday morning. I could not endure the pain any further. The only thing the hospital was able to do for me was to give me pain medication and a muscle relaxant. I received treatments […]

Judith’s Story

“I came to the Yang Institute with excruciating pain from sciatica which had not been relieved by other methods that I have tried, which included exercise, physical therapy and medications. I had six weekly acupuncture treatments and now come every other week. There was some relief immediately and every treatment produced more and more relief. Most importantly, I felt that I was receiving personalized care. The doctor would ask me about my symptoms and plan my treatment around those symptoms. He also answered every question I had so I felt better educated about my condition. I always left the Yang […]
