Bo has treated my 11 year old daughter for a variety of sports-related injuries. The most significant of those was a severe ankle sprain. After acupuncture reduced the swelling, traditional medicine's approach was to put her on crutches, anti-inflammatories and RICE. After one treatment with Bo, she ditched the crutches, was putting weight on the foot, and then played in her soccer game 3 days later. Bo really understands athletes, the pressure they are under AND the injuries they sustain. I have sent several people to Bo and they have reported similar results. I recommend him to anyone and everyone.

    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!

    About

    Acupuncture's high effectiveness in the relief of pain -- often helping when no other method can bring results -- is widely known. However, not only does acupuncture treat sick persons, but it also can benefit healthy people! It aids proper digestion and blood circulation, brightens eyesight, keeps skin smooth, helps the body in getting rid of extra body fat and thus helps people to have happier and longer lives. Dr. Jiang has practiced in LA and Orange County for over 22 years. Her patients include many familiar celebrities and prominent professionals in our community. Dr. Jiang has her MD from Beijing University Medical School in both Western and Chinese medicine.

    About

    We offer medical services specifically tailored to meet each patient's individual needs. Nutritional, herbal, homeopathic and dietary therapies are integrated into our approach to health care, so that the full benefits of prevention, natural therapies and treatment of symptoms are naturally achieved. Services offered include acupressure, acupuncture, cupping, ear seeding, dietary therapy, herbal medicine, moxibustion, preventive care and tui na. In the Western world, Chinese medicine is called alternative, complement, comprehensive, holistic and natural medicine. Chinese medicine is different from Western medicine in terminology, treatment methods and results. Instead of using an artificial drug to replace or mimic the function of some organ or suppress certain chemicals to cover the symptoms of a disease, Chinese medicine enlists the body's own defenses to reverse underlying pathological conditions and restore the body to normal function and harmony. Acupuncture and medical herbs heal diseases rather than just treating the symptoms. Our goal is to heal any disease before it is too late. Acupuncture and herbal medicine have been practiced in China over thousands of years. We combine Chinese and Western medical knowledge together to treat diseases. No matter what disease you are diagnosed with, acupuncture and herbal medicine can be used as your main treatment method.

    About

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Is it safe to use acupuncture?

    The general consensus from doctors, researchers and government health organizations is that yes, it is safe to have acupuncture. As with all things, there can be some risks associated with acupuncture, but with proper attention to a few key details, your health should be in good hands when you receive treatments.

    The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (a branch of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services) states that “relatively few complications from using acupuncture have been reported. Still, complications have resulted from use of non-sterile needles and improper delivery of treatments.” Thus, the health risks associated with acupuncture are generally a result of human error (non-sterile needles and improper placement) as opposed to how acupuncture works in your body. Research your acupuncture provider to make sure they meet state regulations, and inquire about the use of FDA-regulated acupuncture needles. These are classified as medical devices for use by licensed practitioners, and the NCCIH states they are required to be manufactured and labeled according to certain standards (sterile, nontoxic, and labeled for single use only).

    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.
