My father suffered knee pain and was told by his doctor that the knee was bone on bone and the only way out was to have knee replacement surgery.  But my husband learned that his boss, who had similar knee pain, went to Dr. Ling in Houston to help resolve the problem without knee replacement surgery.  So my father who had already made an appointment for knee surgery went to see Dr. Ling in Houston for his knee treatment.  After two treatments, he had much less pain and after two more treatments, he was not only pain free but he could cut and roll over one thousand bales of hays. 

A few years thereafter, his hand was hurt from an I.V. installation in the hospital and could not even use his hand to control the TV remote control.  Right after Dr. Ling’s first treatment, his hand function returned to normal again.   

But more surprising is not the treatment of the pain problem on his hand.  My husband had suffered from a stomach acidity problem for which he had used medication for many years.   He had to struggle with the side effects for years.  After acupuncture treatments 15 years ago, he is still doing good, free from acid problem, and no medication needed.  

Then, my migraine headache, knee pain, and my stiff right shoulder, which restricted my right arm motion, were all treated by Dr. Ling with the same good results.  My entire family including my grandson, all have been treated by the two acupuncture doctors with very good results and we just cannot say enough to thank them. 

Even though we have to travel almost 5 hours one way from Louisiana to Houston for the treatments, we feel it is a blessing to have them and to see them.

I started to suffer from lower back pain in 2007 resulting from picking up an engine in my auto repair shop in Houston.   Right after the incident, I started to experience pain in my lower back for 9 months.  The pain was also accompanied with numbness in my right foot. When the numbness became more severe and unbearable, I went to see my doctor again but as he could no longer help any, he sent me to see a specialist who ordered an MRI test from which he told me that I had herniated discs on L- 4 and L-5 .  This kind of situation would require surgery.  So eventually I was put on the operation table for lower back surgery.   I felt I was very lucky that after the surgery, I was having no pain for five years.  But after that, I was visiting my brother in-law in Dallas and out of nowhere, I began to suffer serious pain again at the same place.  In just three days, I had to use a crutch just to move around, and for very short distance only.  I could not stand on my legs: even having to take a break in between brushing my teeth and shaving. As it was so much worse before the last back operation, I ended up having to see the same surgeon again.  He ordered an MRI from which he told me that my back was in a much worse condition than last time, not only another surgery has to be performed, a metal plate was also needed to be attached to the back bone with screws on the bone.  After so many months of not being able to work and without income, it was frightening for me to hear that another surgery plus a metal plate would be required to resolve the problem.   The surgeon suggested acupuncture.  At first, I did not even know what acupuncture was.  After searching on the Internet, I found three acupuncturists that I would like to talk to and explore the possibility of treatment.  After conversations with the three acupuncturists, I decided to see Dr. Ling of Peking Acupuncture Clinic in Houston.  Before I went to see Dr. Ling, I had to take medication just to be able to move around for 10 minutes.  What a surprise to me that after the acupuncture treatment, that 10 minutes had passed and I was expecting the pain level to go up but instead, it was going down and without having to take medication again.  After 4 more treatments, I was almost pain free.  What a relief that immediately I was not only medication free and also able to go back to work again.   

I regret not having known acupuncture, or Dr. Ling before, and having to experience back surgery. After my happy experience with acupuncture, I have also referred several people to see Dr. Ling and all of them had good results.  I brought my mother, my aunt, my uncle, my cousin who is a baseball player and some of my auto repair customers.  My uncle is so impressed with Dr. Ling's treatment result that he even asked his cousin in Mexico to come for treatment.  The cousin came with pain and went back to Mexico without pain.

I have been suffering from water retention on my both feet for 3 or 4 years for which, I had been taking medication.  The medication helped but also created leg cramps. Because of this water retention problem on both feet, I drove to see Dr. Ling again some 13 years ago.  The results I got from his water retention treatment are something hard for anyone to believe. Right after the acupuncture treatment, I immediately felt better.  After I got home, I saw that my feet were not swollen and were normal again. Equally surprising is the fact that in that in just one treatment, the swelling never did come back to haunt me again. 


Another surprise from acupuncture treatment by Dr. Ling has been the foot pain of my daughter.  She was suffering from so much pain that she had to take medical leave from the her job.   Her doctor prescribed expensive special shoes for her to wear but they did not do much to help, and she still could not go back to work even after spending $2,000.00 on the shoes. Then I recommended that she try Dr. Ling's acupuncture treatment.   Four treatment sessions were recommended by Dr. Ling and surely, after the four treatments, my daughter was able to go back work again.

 

My friend, Bill Austin has been suffering from a sinus problem for some 20 years and had used so many kinds of medicine and nothing helped.  I sent him to see Dr. Ling and he too got quick results and for the past 20 years now, my friend is still free from sinus suffering.  

 
I feel people need to know more about what acupuncture can do to alleviate pain and other medical problems. This is an easy way to treat pain and is safe and inexpensive.

I suffered from foot heel pain and was diagnosed by my doctor as plantar fasciitis.  I had tremendous pain at the bottom of both my heels when standing or walking.  My doctor gave me 3 cortisone shots which helped but only for one and half years and thereafter, the cortisone shots could not render any more help. This pain has been an agony and torture for me for 20 years and with not only no ending, the worse was to be followed by a wheel chair, a hell for me.  Three months after I was put in wheel chair, both of my legs began to swell badly and with unbearable pain. When I was pushed on a wheel chair to see my doctor, he told me that today, I should go to the hospital and not home, as I needed surgery immediately.  I was also told by the doctor that even with the surgery, the pain might still come back again within 5 years. I felt so bad that this tragedy and suffering was going to have no end.  I was so afraid of surgery at the hospital emergency.  I suddenly made up my mind to refuse the surgery route.  My friend, Josephine, suggested that I go see Dr. Ling of Peking Acupuncture Clinic.  So we called and made an appointment asking to use acupuncture as my last resort.  After being seen by Dr. Ling at his office, he refused to see me and indicated that I have to see a medical doctor right away.  It was after I told my story that I just came from the hospital and my preference to be treated the acupuncture way that Dr. Ling agreed to try.   This is a situation when I can only hope for a miracle but not sure I would get it. To my surprise, the 7 needles inserted on each of my feet started to work immediately and I could feel the pain going away.  That was a tremendous relief for me that without surgery I could feel the terrible pain which haunted me for so long was hurting less and less.   After I had two more treatments 2 days apart, I never could believe that I could get out of my wheel chair, and begin to walk again.

Dear Dr. Ling:

 

I am sending you the letter about my mom's speedy recovery with the Bell's Palsy. I hope you can use it. Please edit as you need to.

 

My mom had never believed in acupuncture and had never gone to an acupuncturist before. I had been going to the Ling’s for a chronic cough and sinus problem and my mom insisted that I go to a western doctor for medication instead. So when my mom's right side of the face dropped, she was at a loss. We thought it was a stroke at first, but the doctors said it was Bell's Palsy, a virus that attacks the 7th cranial nerve which affects the eye and mouth. We were relieved to find out it was not a stroke, but my mom could not blink her right eye and could not control the right side of her mouth. She was very worried that the right side of her face would not heal on its own. The western doctors gave her steroids and could not explain what caused Bell's Palsy or how to effectively treat it.

 

I recommended acupuncture to my mom because I figured acupuncture worked best with disorders dealing with nerves. My mom consented and came to Dr. Ling for treatment. After one month and 8 treatments later, my mom regained control of her mouth and her right eye was blinking naturally again. My mom was amazed and she has told everyone around her how acupuncture can help others with nerve disorders. Western doctors said it would take 3-6 months for any kind of healing, but here it only took 4 weeks. I am very grateful for the Lings in taking care of my mom

I began to have back pain since 1984.  The pain of my back has been progressively getting worse for the first several years.  Later on, the pain got much worse and unbearable until 10 years ago, I could hard walk and of course, I could not work either. Then came the time that I could only walk with a cane and sometimes, I had to crawl on the floor.  Anyone seeing me in that kind of situation felt sorry for me but who could do anything to help? But one day, my friend, Teddy, told me about Dr. Ling in Houston, Texas.  I would try anything and the long distance to Houston was not a problem to me at all.  So I made a trip to Houston and got into his office with a cane, not knowing HOW could acupuncture do anything to help me walk again.  But one thing I do know, I was able to walk away from his office without having to use a cane.  With another follow-up treatment I have been pain free now for ten years, but this time, I have back pain for which I have already made an appointment for back surgery.  Before the surgery date, I tried Dr. Ling again to see if he could help.  He took care of my back also thus avoiding a costly back surgery.  How nice.

Acupuncture for neck, shoulder pain

Dear Dr. Ling;

After doing my research I found that there was an alternative to surgery. One of the best arthroscopic surgeons in the country advised me that I need to have 3 surgeries. One for carpal tunnel syndrome, one for cubital tunnel syndrome, and the last for shoulder reconstructive surgery. Before he would do these he recommended that I have an MRI done on my neck. After this MRI, the top neurosurgeon in the United States said I had an additional syndrome. That was diagnosed as thoracic outlook syndrome. Once that was done, they, the medical industry, decided that I needed neck surgery as well. This would not be possible due to the fact that I only have one hand and the one they wanted to do all the surgery on was my one and only good arm. Herein lied my dilemma. Being born with 3 very rare syndromes I could not risk that many surgeries without certain repercussions or even total loss of my only arm. So I looked on the internet to find alternative ways to treat my medical problems. It was then when I read your web site that I decided to try acupuncture. After the first visit I could feel my left arm for the first time in 2 years. Then the motor skills and the strength came back. Upon my 4th visit on 12/20/08, you did acupuncture on the major pain in my shoulder. I told my wife that it felt as if I could play college ball again. After going through multiple MRI's and spend thousands of dollars I went from 4 surgeries to none. I have complete movement of my left arm and virtually no pain. I still get some numbness but I do believe this was anything short of a miracle. I want to thank you for giving me my life back to a point that I can enjoy going outside without being in pain. You are indeed a blessing for me and I don't know how I will ever be able to repay what you have done for me. God bless you, and your practice for without it I would be permanently disabled and only be a burden on those I love. Now I can enjoy living and playing and doing things I thought would never be possible for me again.

Regards;

Danny B. Hanna

I will always owe you something money cannot buy, Life.

Acupuncture for lower back pain

  "In February of 1982, I suffered a fall while coming down the  stairs in my home.  The fall led to back bone fracture which required one month of hospitalization.  After I came back from the hospital, I was confined to bed and wheel chair for another two months with a lot of pain on my back.  When our friend, Mrs. Robinson learned about my suffering, she recommended that Dr. Ling in Houston may be able to help the pain problem.  My husband drove a few hours from West Texas to see Dr. Ling in Houston in late 1982.  I came to Dr. Ling's office in a wheel chair and thought that acupuncture could be my last chance to control the pain so that I could be more comfortable on the bed or wheel chair in my house. Right after the treatment, not only did I feel no pain, when I got up from the treatment bed, I could walk again.  The fact that I could leave the clinic without using the wheel chair was not in my mind when making the trip.  After the first treatment, I had five more treatments with Dr. Ling and since then I was pain free for over twenty some years until lately when I needed another treatment.

Acupuncture for quit smoking

My name is Hash Patel. I am an actor/comedian living in Los Angeles, California. I have lived out here for 4 years and realized that this is a health conscience city. So naturally, people don't smoke as much out here and I have been a smoker for 15 years. I know it's a bad habit but it's an addiction as well as a crutch in my industry caused by stress. I had tried to quit unsuccessfully many times with the pills and patches...it worked for a few days but nothing permanent. I went to a couple of acupuncture places in Los Angeles that boasted after only a handful of treatments i would EVENTUALLY quit. I quickly found out that was not true, because I found myself buying cigarettes right after the treatment. I went to Texas to visit my family for the holidays and I had been in a car wreck very recently. Doctors had given me weeks of physical therapy that was not helping the pain in my neck and back. A friend of mine suggested going to Peking Acupuncture for some relief, I went reluctantly. After the first treatment I realized that 60% of my pain was gone! Better than the weeks of therapy , that was marginal help at best. So I went a few more times, because it was also much much cheaper than my therapy bills and quicker. I noticed there was a map in the waiting room with a bunch of thumbtacks in it. I asked Dr. Ling what this was all about, he told me that the tacks represented people from all over U.S.A. that had come to him to quit smoking through acupuncture. I thought about how successful the treatment had been so far I thought ...why not I'm already here...let's try it. At this point I was smoking at least a pack and a half a day! After that ONE session I had no urge to smoke, I felt calm never cranky with mood changes even in stressful situations. I can say that I quit smoking in an hour!!! The best part about the whole thing that smokers use as an excuse to not quit was, I didn't gain weight while quiting. Dr. Ling does a special treatment in the quiting smoking part that keeps you from wanting to replace the smoking with eating. I eat normally now, actually better than when I was smoking but never overboard. This has to be the easiest and best way to quit smoking without going through mood and weight changes. Those are usually reasons I went back to smoking. I could never do cold turkey, I have tried almost everything reasonable to quit none of it worked. Since then I have recommended a few of my friends to this type of treatment and they said it was the easiest lifestyle choice they have made. If you have this problem or anything else call Dr. Ling, he can help you, plus he is a super nice person and has very interesting stories to tell.

Acupuncture for lower back pain

I had been suffering from lower back pain for 7 years. When the pain became unbearable some twenty years ago, I was then trying everything to get rid of it. I had two back surgeries, 2 years apart. Before the surgery, I had a lot of pain, I could not sleep well and had to use a cane to walk. The first surgery did not help. So I had a second back surgery, neither of which produced any relief or positive result. As I still had unbearable pain after two surgeries, my doctor suggested a third surgery. As I had lost faith in it, I did not want to have another round of surgery. The pain I encountered had made my life miserable. I was in agony, both physically and mentally. I was depressed and not knowing what to do: I was really down. I could not work, nor could I enjoy my children any more. Then I learned about acupuncture. I was in a desperate situation when I found Dr. Ling of Peking Acupuncture Clinic. After the first acupuncture treatment, I had so much pain relief that I began to feel hopeful for the first time in many years. After 5 treatments, most of the pain went away and I could move around much easier. After 10 treatments, not only could I walk without the cane, the pain was minimal. I continued to go for occasional treatments for 12 months. The results from acupuncture were for me a miracle. I could work again , play golf again and enjoy my family. It gave my life back to me again. After my experience with acupuncture I have recommended Drs. Ling to many who would listen to me, and they have had similar results. I strongly recommend acupuncture to anyone suffering from pain. - Marc Whitworth, conroe, TX, 2008

Acupuncture for smoking cessation

Clients of mine (husband and wife) who live in Denver, Colorado used Dr. Ling's method of acupuncture to quit smoking. I learned about Dr. Ling's technique through my son-in-law who works with this couple in Colorado. I went to Dr. Ling in Houston from Round Top, Texas and I quit smoking. Thereafter, my son who lives in Los Angeles, California also went to Dr. Ling and he quit last Christmas. To date, all of us are smoke-free! Dr.Ling's acupuncture is highly recommended by me for cessation of smoking. - Barbara, January, 2008

quit smoking

The fact that we have attracted smokers from all over U.S.A. is not only due to our high rate of quiting, but also being spread around by so many pet handlers of Dog Shows.

"The most exciting of all the good things that took place over the Houston weekend for Marcia and me personally had, however, nothing to do with dogs themselves. Rather it was Marcia's visit to the Peking Acupuncture Clinic, which is located next to the Astrodome [now at a new location] - where the annual August Astro weekend of dog shows takes place. All her life - until now - Marcia has been a heavy cigarette smoker, and during the last few months has been seriously wanting to give up the habit. Marcia remembered how many of our friends and acquaintances have been successfully treated for their smoking habits by Dr. Tiong H. Ling and his wife Dr. Nancy T. Ling, Ph.D. So, an appointment was arranged to coincide with our stay in Houston, and on the morning of March 18, Marcia visited their office. The results have been fantastic. Marcia has neither craved nor smoked a single cigarette since the treatment session. We feel that something quite miraculous has happened. Only disposable needles are used. Consultations are free, and the telephone number is (713) 661-0346. This information is offered as a public service, especially for those who wish they could stop smoking but have not been successful on their own."

Acupuncture for lower back & leg pain

“I was living in Chicago, working for a major company when I fell and fractured my left pelvis. Since then, severe pain developed in my back and leg. … One doctor recommended spinal surgery while another disagreed. … At first, the pain pills temporarily stopped the back pain but after two years, I discovered that the pills were no longer effective. One doctor told me that the nerve damage to my spine and leg were permanent, that there was nothing that could be done for me, and that I must learn to live with the pain.

“Around Labor Day of 1983, my back pain reached an intolerable point. I could not stand straight nor could I move around without being assisted. No pain pills could give any relief, I was completely ex-hausted, and I really felt I wanted to die… . I was assisted by my daughter and son-in-law to your clinic, to try another method to relieve my pain. … Most of the pain went away after the treatment and I could straighten my back and leave your clinic unassisted. When I came for the second treatment the following say, the pain was all gone, and I felt as though I had been reborn – the back pain was gone.” - E.M.

Acupuncture for ringing ear

I am a World War II veteran. The first day that I fired a rifle, I developed a ringing in my ears that sometimes became so loud that I could not hear myself . I had been to physicians over the years that had told me that there was no treatment for this condition. I became resigned to living with this condition. I came to Dr. Ling to be treated for a knee that had begun to bother me approximately 2 years ago in 2006. I had always been very active, walking between 3 to 5 miles everyday. This condition became so severe that I completely stopped walking. I went to an orthopedic surgeon who treated me with steroids initially and when that didn't work, I was asked to do surgery. I am eighty years old and surgery is is not an option that I was willing to consider. I drove up from the Rio Grande Valley (7 driving hours away) for acupuncture treatment with Dr. Ling. After the first session, I felt so much better that I could have gone home but I stayed to finish out the week. After 3 sessions the knee felt great. I am back to walking 3 miles a day and no discomfort. At my last knee session I mentioned the ringing in my ears that I had had for 62 years . One session and the ringing was greatly reduced. I returned one month later for a follow up on the knee and one more treatment for the ringing. The knee feels great and the ringing is 95% gone.

Thank you, Dr. Ling. I hope to walk for another 20 years.

Acupuncture for Knee pain

“… I was in a great deal of pain and limping very badly when I first sought your help. I had the problem for quite a while and all the help I sought could not give me any relief. The first acupuncture treatment gave me much needed relief and enabled me to walk normally. In fact, I had taken the elevator up to your office and after your treatment, I walked down the stairs without the excruciating pain that I had before the treatment.” - R.J.M.

Acupuncture for: lower back & tail bone pain

“For eight years I suffered ever increasing pain in my tail bone area. Because I was pregnant at the time, and had two more pregnancies within the next two years, my doctors decided the pain was pregnancy related. After all three children were born and the pain increased in severity, it was felt that the problem was a chronic inflammation of the tail bone and it was aggravated by all the lifting and carrying (of children) that I did. I was on Naprosyn anyway, so the dosage was increased. However, the drugs did not, in any way alleviate my pain. The pain attacks became more frequent and more severe. … my rheumatologist x-rayed the area and discovered that my tail bone does a sharp l-curve into my body, He referred me back to my orthopedic surgeon to remove my tail bone. My orthopedic surgeon refused to remove my tail bones as dangerous and pointless surgery. For both this pain and for internal gristle-like scar tissue under my ankle, he referred me to you.

“The ankle tissue, which my orthopedic surgeon’s only recourse was to surgically remove, was completely gone at the end of one treatment. There was unusual tenderness in the area for several days but since then there has been nothing - no scar tissue, no pain, no sensitivity.

“The one treatment for my tail bone has literally changed my entire life. For about 7-10 days after treatment, my entire tailbone area was quite sore and extremely sensitive. About two weeks after treatment, I had an attack that was just barely endurable. This was an exciting improvement. However the next three months or so, the attacks came less frequently and were of ever decreasing intensity. Now, almost 10 months later, the attacks occur only every four to six weeks and are so mild that I am only just aware of them. My life continues with no interruptions and no dread of the next attack.” - R.B.J.

Acupuncture for herniated disc pain

“Eight years ago I was diagnosed by seven different physicians with a ruptured and herniated disk and a displaced vertebra. All agreed that surgery was imminent. I was hesitant to proceed with surgery because my mother had endured several surgeries on her neck that resulted in no releif and additional painful side effects.


“ I arrived at your clinic at 7:00 a.m. on a Monday morning and I was in excruciating pain. I lay on the floor in front of your door until you arrived. After your examination and one acupuncture procedure, I walked out of your office with no pain of ill effects what so ever. I was completely relieved of all pain.

“I was very skeptical about the procedure at the time and I thought the pain would return after I left your office. You told me that it may take more than one procedure to completely eliminate the pain, but to date I have not had to return to you.” - L.L.G.

Acupunctur for shoulder and arm pain

"I am a grocery store worker. In May of 1982, about one o'clock in the afternoon, I suffered a shoulder injury resulting from chasing and fighting with a shoplifter when I tried to recover thirteen pounds of meat [from him]. Because of the shoulder pain, I was receiving medical care constantly since the injury, but it went nowhere. Instead of getting better, it became worse.

After three months, my [right] shoulder problem spread to my right arm. At first, I had only numbness in my arm, then, about another three months later, I completely lost all feeling in my entire right hand except my palm. It reached a point [where] it was as if I didn't have a right arm at all. I could see it and touch it using my left hand, but there was no feeling. It was like dead weight. It was surreal. My right palm felt like it was floating in mid-air next to my body. It felt like my palm belonged to someone else. This feeling tormented me everywhere I went. Needless to say, my entire arm was not functional. My arm got worse and led my doctor to send me to the hospital just before Easter 1983. I spent one week in the hospital and the tests and treatments gave no relief. One of the three doctors suggested an operation on my [third to fifth] vertebrate. After a lengthy discussion with my wife, I decided against it at that point in time. There was nothing the hospital could do, so I was released. I was so depressed with my problem when my friend, Mr. Lee, introduced me to Dr. Ling.

When I came to see you, you gave me no assurance that my particular problem could be treated by acupuncture but [said] you would try. The first acupuncture treatment on April 18, 1983, gave no help at all and neither did the second treatment. Then, when the [third] treatment was shifted to my arm, the four needles inserted on my upper arm brought immediate results. I experienced, I would say, a 40% recovery of the feeling in my right hand during the treatment.

I had my best result during the sixth visit with a moxa heat treatment on my leg. During that treatment, about 80% of my lost feeling was recovered. After that, my recovery was speedy and steady. After about ten treatments, I had fully recovered. I am grateful to Dr. Ling for solving my problem, so I didn't need to have spinal surgery."-Paul Chan

Backache & weight loss

Dear Dr. Ling:

" I just want to write you this note to tell you how grateful I am for all you have done for me. I'd like to list them all for you so that you can share with other people about what acupuncture has done for me.

(1) Before I went to see you, I suffered a backache for 24 years. I tried everything I could but nothing had helped my backache. I remember I was having so much pain on the day I first visited you that my son had to help me into your office. But right after the first treatment, I had little pain left and I could walk away by myself without [a] problem. After I received two more treatments for my backache, all the pain was gone. It has been over a year now and I still have no backache. I am back fishing in my boat, riding my motorcycle and many things more.

(2) I received two weight control treatments from you and since then, I have lost 42 lbs and have maintained it.

(3) I had bursitis for 6 years and could not raise my elbows any higher than my shoulders. In one treatment, and within three days, I could and have since been able to raise my arms without pain, and as high as I like.

(4) I had constipation for at least a year and was using stool softener and other drugs. I have not used any drug since the treatments.

It was November of 1983 since I visited you last. I have been healthy and enjoy a good life. I [would] like to solicit for acupuncture for the good health of my fellow man.
Respectfully,
"-W. M. Johnson

This letter is from someone who suffered serious back pain for years, and now no more

Hi my name is Julio.

I am from Guatemala.  I  suffered from severe lower back pain for 15 years, and it started when I was living in California.  Sometimes the pain was so sharp that I even experienced difficulty to breathe.  I went to see many doctors including 2 in California, 6 in Washington, D.C., and 4 in Houston.  I took many kinds of pain medicine and none could helped to stop the pain for me. In addition, I also went to 6 different chiropractic doctors and with no result.  Three weeks ago, I had severe pain again and the pain pills from my doctor only made me dizzy.  After two weeks not working because of having severe pain, I was desperate and turned to acupuncture as my lasts resort.  I spent a lot of time on the Internet and after visiting over 15 acupuncture web pages, I decided to see Dr. Ling of Peking Acupuncture Clinic.  I went to his clinic with a lot of pain.  After half an hour of acupuncture treatment, my severe pain was reduced from level 9 to level 3. With that much pain reduction, I knew right away that I could go back to work again.  After second treatment two days later on Saturday morning, I had no pain at all.  I never felt so good in 15 years. I asked Dr. Ling to write a letter for me to go back to work again.   During my first treatment by Dr. Ling, he also treated my daughter who suffered continuous lower back pain right after Cesarean delivery two years ago.  When I write this thank you note, both my daughter and I have no pain.  This is something I never did dream that the chronic pain which has afflicted us for so many years could go away so quickly and completely.

Dr. Ling you are truly a master acupuncturist.  I like to recommend you to anybody to see you.

Thank You Master Ling !

Here is another letter from a patient with serious back pain being helped by acupuncture treatment.

Eight years ago I was diagnosed by seven different physicians with a ruptured and herniated disk and a displaced vertebra.  They all agreed that surgery was imminent. I was hesitant to proceed with surgery because my mother had endured several surgeries on her neck that resulted in no relief and additional painful aide effects.

When I was referred to you by a co-worker, I was desperate.  I had been in constant pain for three weeks and was (also) suffering from insomnia and weight loss.  The muscles in my leg were deteriorating from the lack of usage.  Your clinic was my last risk-free option prior to surgery.

I arrived at you clinic at 7:00 a a.m. on a Monday morning and I was in excruciating pain.  I lied on the floor in front of you door until you arrived.  After your examination and one acupuncture procedure, I walked out of your office with no pain or ill effects what so ever.  I was completely relieved of all pain.

I was very skeptical about acupuncture at that time and I thought the pain would return.  But to date, I still do not have any pain.

"Thank you" seems inadequate because words cannot express my appreciation.

Sincerely,

Larry L. Gardner/ 2009

This next letter is about sciatica being helped by acupuncture treatment.

I suffered from and was diagnosed by my doctor as chronic pain from sciatica (left hip) for one year. My doctor could not give me any help and neither the physical therapies.  Then I went to see Dr. Ling for acupuncture treatment.  After the 5th treatment, the pain went away altogether and it makes me a believer in acupuncture treatment for sciatica.
