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 Acupuncture Works

Calms And Balances Your Neuro-Endocrine Axis

When your nervous system is calm, your hormonal system, immune system, digestive, and circulatory systems all calm down, too. This means more hormonal balance, less inflammation, better circulation and nutrient absorption.

Promotes Tissue Healing

When you use acupuncture to stimulate your body’s healing process, it gets right to work repairing and restoring all cells and tissues. Acupuncture harnesses the vast healing intelligence your body contains to help you heal faster.

Helps Sustain Optimal Function

When we use acupuncture to bring more blood flow to the glands and tissues that need the most support, those tissues naturally work better. This means key tissues like thyroid, liver, adrenals, ovaries, and others are able to function at peak levels.

Opens And Regulates Microcirculation

When you apply acupuncture as a weekly therapy for several weeks, your body naturally and gently begins to undergo positive changes. This is different from drugs and surgery which represent drastic, sudden change your body may not be able to sustain. The changes induced by acupuncture are literally like new pathways your body won’t soon forget.
