Pain Management – Success Stories


Lenice Balier’s 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 fuzzy 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 felt “So good” . “Oh, how I wish I had met this wonderful man […]

“I came to Dr. Zhang for help with my constant discomfort and occasional pain from bulging discs and spinal stenosis.

Tom’s Story

“I have very flat feet and in my youth wore corrective shoes. In my adult years I spent a great deal of my life on my foot as a teacher. I developed an acute problem with the tendons in my left foot. The pain in my left foot was always near10. Since having acupuncture with Dr. Yang over 3 months, my foot feels much better. The pain now is usually only around a 2 at the end of the day. I do not like needles and I was only used to Western medical treatment. I would now recommend Dr. Yang’s […]

Thomas’ Story

“As a 63 year old man, I have suffered with migraine headaches since the 7th grade. I remember that my head would hurt so badly that I really believed I was going to die. Soon after my headaches began, I learned that a dark room helped. I used to close the blinds, put Vicks Vapor Rub on my head and cover my eyes with a towel. I also recall that it was right around the time that the headaches began and grew worst that I began to feel sad. Often, I would feel nervous too and would have nightmares. My […]

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 […]

“Dr. Ruonan Zhang has been my savior. I had a chronic case of Sciatica and Piriformis syndrome that cause 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 […]

James’ Story

“I have had chronic Lyme disease since age 5. I suffer from chronic pain and the horrible neurological, psychological and physical reactions from antibiotics.   Acupuncture has given me a way of life during my medical treatment that I would not have otherwise had.
