what our customers say

Dr. Frank and Dr. Ning are miracle workers. I suffered from severe neck spasms, pain in both of my shoulders and inner thigh. In two visits, they eased my pain. Both are clearly well-trained in the ancient arts of acupuncture and Chinese massage.

Lourdes M.

Frank is one of the best Chinese acupuncturist you will find. His approach is comprehensive and he takes the time to find out what is the root cause. He is the best that I have experienced.

Richard W.

I saw Dr. Shi for knee pain. He listened to my symptoms, explained how acupuncture works, and treated me in a caring, gentle way. My pain has diminished substantially.
