Dr. Steve is an attentive listener and very knowledgeable. He is helping me with an ancient case of Bell's Palsey (21 years ago) and pain from an old accident (10 years ago) with great success. I have never been so consistently pain-free and comfortable since the accident. Dr. Steve has gone above and beyond and has helped me balance out things I did not even know were wrong with me - I understand now that my body could react more favorably, because it is. Sometimes our sessions run a little long, spending about 60 minutes instead of 45, but I have never waited more than a few minutes to be seen at my appointed time. I have had greater results than I expected due to Dr. Steve's care and I will keep going back until I feel like all my problems have been properly addressed. I will never regret choosing Dr. Steve for my acupuncture adventure because he has improved my quality of life immensely in just two weeks.

Gina is a talanted and giving Feng Shui practitoner. She goes above and beyod your expecatations. I hired Gina to help Feng Shui my Berkeley Acupuncture practice. I expected advice on the placement of furniture and color themes, but she offers much, much more. My experience was a transformative two hour session offering insight into what my new office had to offer my practice. She taught me how to use this to benefit both patient and practtioner. She listened to my concerns and came up with solutions that gave balance and calmness to my space...no longer an office...it is now a healing space. I highly recommend Gina Rossi.

It was my first time to receive acupuncture and cupping.I was apprehensive and nervous. Dr. Julian Zhu worked on me and addressed my needs after consultation. I left feeling energized and happy! He also put together a mixture of herbs to drink. I cannot wait until my next session !

Dr. Julian Zhu has done wonders for me ! Since he has been treating me, I find that I am more at peace with myself.I am more alert and able to handle day to day stress. I initially went to him because of ringing in my ear along with some facial paralysis from a car accident 35 years ago . To my delight I have noticed some improvement even though it has been so long. I am so excited about the treatments that I have been receiving, I am bringing my father to Dr. Zhu to try to address his back pain.

I assumed all chiropractors were created equal until I moved out of the area and had reason to try other chiropractic practices. Crosby Chiropractic and Acupuncture Centre is truly one of a kind and the reason I believe so strongly in chiropractic, acupuncture, Chinese medicine, etc. Because of this practice, I have seen progress and healing in friends and family who were failed by traditional Western medicine.

We offer acupuncture and chiropractic services. We can help in pain reduction, smoking cessation, cosmetic acupuncture, personal injury, stress reduction and herbal therapy For all of you allergy sufferers out there we are now offering neurological stress reduction therapy or NSRT by BioVeda Technologies. This therapy provides a novel and unique approach to wellness that is based on proven, accepted science, allowing patients who generally have very few if any treatment options to experience symptomatic relief. The brain creates associations between stressful events and substances which are often times inappropriate and subsequently lead to a host of chronic and acute conditions. As an example, "Allergies are abnormal or inappropriate reactions of the nervous system that occur in response to otherwise harmless substances." - Alternative Medicine Encyclopedia If these associations can be broken by introducing a positive stimulus in conjunction with the specific stress inducing substance, symptoms can be reduced or eliminated. Instantly Ageless is a powerful anti-wrinkle micro cream that works quickly and effectively to diminish the visible signs of aging. The revolutionary ingredient is argireline -- a peptide that works like botox, without the needles. Instantly ageless revives the skin and minimizes the appearance of fine lines and pores for a flawless finish.

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).

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.
