I was diagnosed with Hives. From the advice of my allergy doctor, I took Zyrtec for 3 months but it didn't help at all. And because of the severe side effects of Zyrtec i.e. drowsiness, I stopped using Zyrtec and decided to look for an alternative treatment. I found Dr. Chen. After several treatments of acupuncture plus Chinese herbs, my symptom was completely gone. Dr. Chen went above and beyond to listen, diagnose and spend quality time to treat for my symptom. I am very thankful for his kindness and expertise.

    Dr. Cho is polite and knows his profession well. He explained to me what he was going to do before he did it. He then explained each needle point as to the relation of my sciatica pain. I am feeling FANTASTIC as a result of his acupuncture treatment. I am going to recommend him to all my friends.

    I work in Shipping & Receiving and handle heavy freight which involves a lot of lifting. I also play guitar and over the years all this repetitive motion caused me chronic muscle pain throughout my left shoulder to the top of my head. It got to the point I needed professional help; I discovered Chang Oh through my church and began to visit his clinic regularly. The therapy sessions he provided relieved me of all my pain and I am now convinced acupuncture and acupressure and massage are my preferred alternative to Western drugs. I recommend Chang Oh's excellent services to anyone suffering from chronic pain! Sincerely, Phil H.

    I've had Tara treat me several times for various reasons - sick with the flu, extreme muscle pain/ soreness, tweaked neck, sciatica pain, etc. She has used both acupuncture and cupping. My body responds extremely well to cupping and in times where I have had severe back or neck pain cupping along with an electric stem via acupuncture had me feeling like an improved person after coming off the table. Tara is very knowledgeable and passionate and will even educate you along the way as her goal is for you to achieve optimal health by gaining a proper balance in life. She has two great locations and will even do house calls. I highly recommend her!

      I came into the clinic because I was experiencing horrible back pain. Sunny cured me using massage and acupuncture. She walked me through the whole process since she knew I'm terrified of needles and the whole procedure didn't hurt at all! Not only that, my back is doing way better! Thanks Sunny!

      I have stomach aid problems which regular medication can not help much. When that hits me hard, I always get Carol's help. Her treatment always helps me. Also, Carol's herbs are helping my dog's liver problem. After my dog started taking Carol's herbs, her blood test showed much better result. Amazing!

      I am a board-certified acupuncturist with experience in needling, Chinese herbal therapy, cupping, moxibustion, and nutritional counseling. Chinese medicine is a complete system of healing, and I have helped clients with a variety of issues, including diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and arthritis. I have also helped clients with pain management, bell's palsy, thyroid conditions, gastrointestinal conditions, migraines, and sleeping issues. I am passionate about helping people help themselves. Chinese medicine is a safe, non-addictive therapy that uses the body's healing mechanisms in order to resolve dysfunction and disease. Improper nutrition, the environment and stress contribute to a slow and often unnoticed state of dysfunction. Allergies, aches and pains, indigestion, weight gain and inconsistencies in sleeping patterns become the "new normal." These seemingly age-related issues are actually signals that your body is not in an optimal state of health. With time, these minor issues may transform into life-changing conditions, such as, diabetes, high blood pressure, arthritis, IBS and ultimately heart disease. Taking care of small changes now will prevent life-altering problems in the future. I look forward to assisting in any way that I am able.

      About

      Dr. Gu is a Chinese Medical Doctor with strong medical training backgrounds. She has more than twenty years of practical experience in both U.S., China, and Japan. Through Dr. Gu's abundant clinical experience, she has researched and designed a revolutionary needling technique that, quite simply, is administrated with the absence of any pain or other discomfort. Literally, there are often instances where the patient is totally unaware that any needle has been inserted. Subsequently, Dr. Gu has been labeled with the moniker "Magic Hand". This "No-Pain" technique is facilitated through the utilization of several simple advancements: The disposable needle is sheathed within a tube that affords a steadier, more expeditious insertion. The needle literally penetrates the skin at a speed too great to cause pain to the patient. Following the needle insertions, a magnetic heat therapy is used to relax the patient's muscles and eliminate any feeling of discomfort. Finally, a multi-purpose health device is used to reduce the number of needles previously required obtaining the desired therapeutic results.

      How does acupuncture work?

      Acupuncture works by restoring the body’s natural healing powers. Acupuncture involves placing very thin needles into specific points on the body to influence the body’s energy flow and help the body heal itself in a natural way. In traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is linked to the belief that disease is caused by disruptions to the flow of energy (called qi in Chinese) in the body. The acupuncturist places whisper-thin needles into the arms, back, neck and other areas where the chi (or energy flow) has been blocked. The acupuncture needles stimulate points on or under the skin called acupuncture points or acupressure points, releasing this qi. These pathways — called “meridians” — become re-stimulated by the needles to bring blood and healing to the body. In Western medicine, acupuncture has been proved to relieve pain and help provide healing and relief from painful symptoms associated with everything from headaches to asthma to cancer. Western medicine sees the use of the needles as a way to stimulate the body’s nervous system, thereby prompting healing.

      What are the benefits of acupuncture?

      There are many proven health benefits of acupuncture, whether you’re seeking short-term relief or need help with a chronic health condition. This alternative healing is likely why millions of adults nationwide get acupuncture treatments each year. Acupuncture provides pain relief, can help speed the body’s natural healing process, and has also been proved to have positive outcomes on mental health concerns such as depression. Acupuncture can also help relieve discomfort associated with chronic and terminal illnesses. For example, acupuncture has been proved to be effective in helping cancer patients manage pain, nausea and vomiting, fatigue, hot flashes, xerostomia (dry mouth), neuropathy (nervous system problems), anxiety, depression and sleep disturbances, according to Cancer.gov. Acupuncture is a safe and effective alternative to opioids and other pain medications, which not only are hard on the body but also present the risk of addiction. The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services found that people had less pain or were better able to manage pain when they received acupuncture as part of their health treatment.

      What is an acupuncture treatment?

      An acupuncture treatment is a type of integrative health care session that uses needles (and sometimes heat and/or electrical stimulation) to stimulate the body’s nervous system to begin a healing process. Long practiced in traditional Chinese medicine and other Eastern cultures, acupuncture has gained widespread acceptance and use as a complementary and integrative part of healing in Western medicine. During an acupuncture treatment, the patient lies in a relaxed position on a table that is very similar to a massage table. The acupuncturist, having done a diagnosis of health concerns and determined a course of treatment, will insert thin stainless steel needles into the prescribed acupuncture points. These points are determined by the patient’s health needs. The practitioner may gently manipulate the needles to trigger a healing response in the body. Typically there is no pain associated with the treatment. A session may use anywhere from 6-30 needles or more, depending on what illness is being treated. The needles can remain in place for 5-30 minutes, with 15 minutes being a common time. Acupuncture treatments are often prescribed in a series, based on patient need.

      How often do you need to get acupuncture?

      How often you need acupuncture really depends on the health condition that is being treated. Acute issues such as a pulled groin or short-term digestion problems will likely require fewer treatments than a chronic disease such as some types of cancer. Dr. Lee Hullender Rubin, speaking with the Acupuncture Now Foundation, likens acupuncture sessions to a “dose” of medication prescribed by a doctor. If you have a condition like high blood pressure and are prescribed a medication to treat it, you wouldn’t take one dosage and be done. Likewise, for ongoing health conditions, Dr. Hullender Rubin explains that more than one session of acupuncture is likely in order. “For pain-related diseases, it seems 12 to 20 sessions is a reasonable intervention to achieve stable results,” says Dr. Hullender Rubin. For more acute (short-term) conditions, Dr. Tony Chon says that treatment might consist of two to six acupuncture sessions.
