Why Our Natural Treatment Works So Well For Health Issues…

We address the root cause

Our process includes finding and attacking the actual root CAUSE of your problem. This is why so many have found relief with our therapies, even though other therapies didn’t work. Even those with a long term chronic issues – like pelvic pain, endometriosis, PMS, IBS, and other things doctors have trouble with – have experienced significant relief.

 

 

We use an all-natural approach your doctor doesn’t know about

Your doctor may have told you that you have to live with your problem, stay on the birth control pill or other medication, or that “this is as good as it gets”. That doesn’t mean there’s no treatment, it just means your doctor has run out of ideas or there aren’t conventional treatments available. We find that people who don’t respond well to conventional treatment often respond very well to our natural approach.

 

 

We help you awaken your body's natural healing system

Despite what you may have been led to believe, your body is not “broken” and it IS possible to have energy, focus, and joy again. That’s because your body never forgets how to heal itself. It just needs the right support. Your body makes its own internal anti-inflammatory substances and medicines, and our therapies help it do just that.

 

 

We keep it simple and results are quick

Feeling better and reducing or eliminating pain, fatigue, cramps, mood swings, and other symptoms does not have to be difficult or take a long time. Simple, targeted lifestyle and diet changes, along with our targeted natural therapies, are a very clear and concise way to attack the problem head on, and patients often see improved energy and mood within Days not Weeks or Months.

 

 

We focus on how you fell - not just the numbers

While everyone else is looking at pieces of paper with numbers, and not listening to you – We focus on you, your story, and how you feel.

 

Are you feeling more energy? Are you thinking more clearly? Are you starting to lose those unwanted pounds? Does your skin look healthy and vibrant? That is our focus. Not more expensive, unnecessary lab tests.

 

Our approach always includes stress reduction

Stress is often a key component in hormonal imbalance. We do not ignore this, we actually teach you very simple ways to enhance sleep and relaxation which supports your body’s natural healing system.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Arthritis Pain
by Maggie Marston  on Feb 17, 2020

Dr Gao is an experienced and holistic doctor. I have been feeling better and have experienced continual improvement in long-term arthritis pain, easing of stress during a big life change, reduction of menopause symptoms, and am sleeping more restfully. Dr. Gao is a good listener. After seeing a vet bring my immobile dachshund back to a good quality of life during the last year of his life with acupuncture, I decided to seek care for myself. I suggest seeking acupuncture sooner than later. Dr Gao is attending to long-neglected injuries that are slowly healing, and the pain is decreased significantly. Newer areas of pain and stiffness, menopause symptoms and stress reduction is responding more quickly. I am grateful to Dr Gao.

Allergy and Asthma
by Vincent Baker  on Sep 26, 2019

My child had been experiencing moderate to severe allergy and asthma symptoms for an extended period of time. After many visits to allergists, and pulmonologists she was on multiple medications but still had no relief. Gao Acupuncture has been a blessing. After a few months of acupuncture and herbal therapy she began to see marked improvement. Six months after beginning with Gao Acupuncture my daughter has now stopped using all prescriptions. She is now solely utilizing acupuncture and natural methods to treat her allergies. Thank you Gao Acupuncture.

Hormonal Imbalance 
by JAY G  on May 21, 2019

My experience with Hong Gao as my acupuncturist has been nothing short of amazing! She has taken so much time and care to listen to me and properly care for my medical needs. She is thoughtful and asks many questions making sure that I’m included in every decision of the treatment plan. It has been only a couple of months of treatments for hormonal imbalance and migraines and I have already experienced great success not only in my specific treatment areas but in my general health.

Chronic Pain 
by Bintou Camara  on May 9, 2018

Never did I expect for this new experience that is Acupuncture to work for me. I have tried all types of therapies to heal my body pains and aches, and after years of trying, I resolved myself to try one last thing: acupuncture, but with skepticism. Not only did the experience help from the first visit, but Dr. Gao has a way to make you feel comfortable and educate you on your pain, so you can better understand it. Further to this, as my pain level gets better after every session, I sense a degree of optimism and happiness that I have lost some time ago, with the growing, chronic pain. After just 6-7 sessions, Dr. Gao has turned me into a more positive, hopeful, happier person. I realize the pain will not disappear overnight, and there may be some setbacks, but today, I am confident of that the improvement of my health is linked to acupuncture and Dr. Gao. 

 

 

HOW DOES ACUPUNCTURE HELP WITH HORMONE BALANCE?

Acupuncture improves your neuroendocrine axis (the communication between your nervous and endocrine systems), enhances circulation to specific glands and tissues that support hormone secretion, and dramatically reduces stress – all of which benefits your overall hormonal state.

 

WHAT ABOUT HERBS?

Herbal medicines have been used for hormonal issues for centuries. They restore depleted glands, balance your endocrine system, reduce inflammation and have many other positive effects on your endocrine function.

 

DO YOU GIVE DIETARY RECOMMENDATIONS?

Absolutely. You will receive specific dietary recommendations based on your unique needs in addition to our diet plan that we’ve used for over a decade to help hundreds and hundreds to improve their hormonal status.

 

DO YOU PRESCRIBE HORMONES?

No, we do not. Our methods are 100% natural and designed to support optimal function of your endocrine system.

 

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO WORK?

We’ve seen it take as little as 4 weeks and as long as 12 months. Everybody is different, and the time prognosis varies.

 

WHAT ARE YOUR SUCCESS RATES?

Almost everyone we work with who follows the treatment plan gets better. That’s because all we do is support your body’s natural healing system and it already knows what to do.

 

WHAT ARE MY CHANCES OF SUCCESS?

Well over 80% of our patients report improvements and many are able to reduce their medications (should that be their wish). However, your situation is unique and once we meet with you we will be able to give you our best estimate of time and prognosis of outcome.
