These are some of what our patients talk about after treatment with us..
Low Back Pain
“ I am really appreciate your treatment on my lower back pain. I had this pain for over 10 years and consulted many doctors and they recommended me for surgery. One of my friends highly recommended you and I thought to myself, I have nothing to lose. Now, I don’t need a surgery and I don’t have the pain anymore. Thank you!!”

“I just cannot describe the relief which I received after one treatment for my shoulder pain. Wish I would have known it sooner. I had this pain from many years and seek many kinds of therapy including taking pain medication and pain does not go away yet with one treatment from you, I got relief which I have not felt for a long time. I wanted to thank you and definitely will be back for my follow-up.” J.R. Houston, TX 2013
I hope your holidays are wonderful. I thank you each day for helping my heel spur and my elbows. Everything is great thanks to you. I appreciate your kindness and your patience.
Sincerely, R.M. MO 2012
This letter is to testify as to how much you had helped me. I had two bone spurs on my right foot. I received medical treatment since 1993 but was still unable to walk without pain. Since being treated by you, I haven’t had the pain and I have been able to wear shoes without my orthotics.
Thank you, C.G. TX 2012
“ Thank you for helping me with my migraine headache which I have for 13 years. I’ve been to many doctors and giving many medication for my headache but was not able to help ease the pain like your treatment. I have migraine headache attack everyday with 2-3 severe one. After second treatment from you, my headache was down to 1-2 times a week. That really helps me tremendously and improved my quality of life. I will definitely recommend you to everyone. I will be making sure that to come back every month to maintain my treatment. Thank you again for helping me.”

Back pain after surgery
In 1992, I had surgery on my back for a ruptured disk in the L4-L5 region. The surgery helped me to some degree but left me having severe muscle spasms so severe that I had to be taken to the hospital by ambulance and given large doses of pain shots and muscle relaxers. This would happen 2 to 3 times a year. A friend of the family told me about you. So in 1995, I went to your office and explained my problem to you. The reason I’m writing this letter is to let you know that it has not been 2 years almost 3 year since your treatment and I have not has the first muscle spasm nor have I been back to the hospital for problems with my back. I am so very grateful to you for giving me back my life. For year I was so afraid to go anywhere in public for fear of my back problem. Now I am a correctional officer at a penatenuary. I tell everyone about what you have done for me and I just thought u should take the time to tell the right person and to thank you so much. God bless you and keep up the good work.
Sincerely, L.R. TX 2010
"Wow! I cannot describe it any better. I have been a non-smoker now for six and a half weeks after one treatment from you. Not once in that time have I craved a cigarette…The combination of acupuncture and Chinese herbs has left me feeling healthier than I've felt in years. Best regards,

I was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on April 12, 1934. I married a man when I was 18 who came from a family where the men drank in the evenings. He was 12 and had a good job here in Houston. I came from a family of drunks on my mother’s side of the family. We had a boy when I was 20 years and a girl at 21 years. I had never had any alcohol until I was 25 years old. We bought our first house in a new neighborhood of all young couples like ourselves. We started having parties and that’s where I learned to drink. We kept on partying and drinking more in this neighborhood. In 1973 at age 39 years old, I went to work. My husband was drinking a lot more. Our kids had gone away. We sold our house of 20 years and bought a town-house. I never drank in the day-time but he did. He kept losing his jobs. I would have drinks when I came home from work and on the weekends. He drank all the time. Finally in February 1980 he couldn’t face working anymore. He moved back to Oklahoma City to live with his mother who was alone now. I stayed here and worked harder and drank more. I was having some drinks every night. In September 1981 he died of liver disease in Oklahoma. In January 1983 I married Bob, the man I’m married to now. He has never drunk at all but he didn’t care if I did. I drank one pint of scotch by myself. I know I must have a problem when my Doctor said I had an enlarged liver. I came to you to get acupuncture because of a friend. You treated me on February 19, 2012 and I have not had one drink since. I, of course am very grateful for your treatment and knowledge.
Thank you very much April.W. TX 2012
I sure hope this note finds you well and happy. I saw this little cartoon and just had to make a copy for you. I’m feeling so good these days. I educated myself about sodium, cut out as much as I can and dropped 25 LBs of fluid in about a month. Wish I could do as well with calories and fat! I continue to be grateful to you for the care you gave me that kept me out of a wheelchair and able to continue working. I was looking at being disabled but you gave me time to keep searching for the answers. When I come to Houston during your office hours, I’m going to drop in for a quick visit so you can see how much better I am. Until then, take good care of yourself and I’ll continue sending people your way.
With much gratitude, C.V. TX 2012
Spinal stenosis, lower back pain and insomnia
I would like to thank you for seeing me as a patient. Since I started your acupuncture treatments in my back, I had better results than conventional medicine and epidural blacks
I had a disc removed in my neck (between c5/c6) and spinal stenosis in my lower back. (1992)
I’ve had treatment for not sleeping in which your first treatment helped me to sleep for the first time. I would like you to know that acupuncture is more effective right now than the epidural black. I sincerely thank you for helping me to ease my pain. L.G. MO 2013
Once again, I would like to thank you for all you have done for me. You have help me tremendously with my Bell’s Palsy when the doctors on my HMO could not. You have helped me with my frozen right shoulder, something that is related to my work being a U.S. Postal employee and because of you, I no longer have problem. You have helped me with my right foot when the podiatrist in my HMO could not. I no longer have any pain in my foot. You also help to relieve the pain in my right knee, the pills that the doctor in my HMO were simply not working. As for my back pain what can I say, when I am in pain, I take the medications that my doctor prescribed, Naproxen 500 mg, but after your treatments, I feel better and the relief has lasted much longer. Without you, all I would be doing is popping pills and doing fruitless physical therapy with little result. As for me and my physical problems only acupuncture has help me and once again I thank you for that. Take care of yourself and I look forward to seeing you soon. Sincerely yours,
E.C. TX 2013
