Shoulder Pain

I have experienced amazing results with acupuncture administered by Dr Lihua Wang.  My first visit to Dr
Wang was approximately 15 years ago when I had severe shoulder pain.  Five treatments later I was pain free
and it has never returned.

Ankle Pain

Recently Lihua Wang started working on my right ankle.  It had been rebuilt with pins, plates and screws
about 30 years ago.  Various orthopedic surgeons have looked at my ankle and each said even surgery
would
no help and that I should wait until medical treatments advances and then consider ankle replacement.  
Again acupuncture helped.  The very first treatment was felt from toes to fingers and my increased mobility is
beyond belief.  Now I am attempting to strengthen the ankle since it has been locked up for the last 30 years.  
To me this is just the beginning of a new life.  Even if I had only received about a quarter of the success from
these treatments, I would still be calling this a success.  What a wonderful gift I have received.  Thank you Ms
Wang.

Herniated discs

I want to make my VERY STRONG RECOMMENDATION for the services of Lihua Wang L.A.C.

I am suffering from three herniated discs in L1, L2, and L3 of my back.  There are many days that my back is
in such pain that on a scale of 1-10 the pain it would be a 9.
I have come in to see Lihua barely able to walk, and on the verge of tears on many occasions.  An example is
last Friday.  What started as an afternoon of incredible pain ended in a pain level of ZERO after Lihua Wang's
treatment.
Lihua is kind, funny and incredibly compassionate.  I would recommend her services to anyone who is
suffering from pain of any kind.

Back Pain

I am writing to express in words my gratitude to you for removing the pain from my arthritic back and knee and
for curing by bursitis. I have tried acupuncture for these ailments with two other acupuncturists with little or no
positive results.
When I first came to you I could barely walk and was in great pain. Now I feel great and as soon as I get the
rest of my body in good shape again I will return to my favorite sport which as you know is mountain trekking.
Your facilities are immaculate and I enjoy the soothing music during treatment. You and your husband are
very congenial and I have talked to other patients of yours who also hold you in high regard.
In short Lihua, you are the best.

I have personally benefited from Dr Lihua Wang's expertise with traditional Oriental medicine and
acupuncture.  When she treated me for back pain, the results were immediate.  I'd entered her office with
intense muscle spasms, but left with only a slight dull ache, which dissipated overnight.  In fact  I felt so good
that I found it hard to behave myself and  take it easy for the rest of the day as she had recommended.

My lower back was killing me.  I couldn't even sit and watch TV for ten minutes before it started aching.  I got
one treatment and it disappeared completely.
This was a year ago and it has not returned.  The treatment I received at China Acupuncture & Herb Center by
Dr. Wang was very effective and I was amazed because she knew right away what to do,

Neck Pain

In 1991 I called Lihua Wang on the telephone and told her I had a stiff neck and I could not move it left or
right.  Before I had tried Chiropractic and never having been treated by an acupuncturist of such high status, I
wanted to be treated.  In 3 treatments, my neck moved better than it ever had in its life.  One day I ran into my
prominent Chiropractor and she could not believe that I had not been coming for chiropractic adjustments.  I
did not have the heart to tell her that I would not be seeing her again because acupuncture had found the key
to Bruce's neck problem.  It is now 2007 and my neck is still as good as it was when Lihua Wang treated me
back in 1991.

I came to Lihua Wang's clinic for treatment of migraine pain.  Through her treatments, I experienced relief of
pain for an extreme migraine that had not responded to Imitrex tablets or shots.  I continue to receive
acupuncture treatment in order to improve/maintain mobility of my neck as well as treat migraine pain.  Both
have improved with acupuncture.  I am also using the herb cloths for my neck during the day and find them
helpful and soothing.  I like them enough that I've now bought my second set.

Foot Pain

Dr. Wang is wonderful.  I have tried many different forms of pain relief, from pain meds to cortisone shots.  
Nothing helped.  Three treatments of acupuncture and my foot feels the best it has been in a long time.  
Thank you very much.

Quit Smoking

I smoked for more than 35 years, 1 1/2 to 2 packs a day.   With acupuncture treatments and herbs that
Lihua Wang gave me I was able to stop smoking very easily.

Sexual Health

I discussed with Dr. Wang my low desire for sex. When I engaging in sex, having difficulty achieving an
orgasm. After two treatment & herbs, my desire has really improved. I am always able to archive an orgasm.
My love-life has improved 100%. As women get older and our hormones changed, we don't have to settle for
lack of desire. Physical intimacy is an important part of our lives. I would recommend Dr. Wang's treatment to
everyone.

At 57 yrs old and single after a 30 yrs marriage I realized that I had only been asked out by one gentleman in
4 1/2 years. I take very good care of myself. But it wasn't until I took Dr Wang's herbs did I started attracting
men. It was fun and uplifting. My life has been changed 180 degrees. I recommended these herbs to my
neighbors (who is a medical doctor) and, she experienced similar results. Try them! They're great!

Women's Problems:  Abnormal Menstruation, Menopause, Low
libido, PMS
, Menstrual Bleeding and Firbroids

I came to Dr Wang for irregular menstrual period.  With a few treatments, I started having regular menstrual
period every month.  The treatments also helped reduced the PMS symptoms, and I no longer feel cold all the
time.  I also have stronger sexual desire, which never existed before.  Thank you Dr Wang.

-- M.W.

Dr Wang has helped me, with excellent results, with the following conditions: I first went to her for an itchy
rash that no dermatologist was able to correct.  With acupuncture and herbs the rash was controlled and
cured.  She also treated my menopausal symptoms very effectively without the use of hormone treatment
therapy.  I have also been satisfied with her treatments for arthritis.

-- Connie K.

I came to Lihua Wang several years ago when I was so sick with prolonged menstrual bleeding.  I was very
debilitated from having a period that had lasted over one month.  I remember how your acupuncture
treatments and herbs were able to stop the bleeding and return me to a monthly cycle.  I regained my
strength.  Then when I began to have more symptoms of menopause, hot flashes and nigh sweats I
continued acupuncture treatments and these symptoms were very rare.  I always feel so relaxed after my
treatments.  I continue to benefit now from monthly visits for acupuncture for menopause and I am so happy
that I have not had to resort to estrogen replacement therapy.  I hope more women who begin menopause
will
try acupuncture to help them through this time of their lives.  Thank you Dr Wang.

Given what I'd read about the dangers of artificial hormones, I was reluctant to treat my peri-menopausal
symptoms using HRT.  After a few treatments (at Dr Wang's clinic), the muscle twitching and hot flashes I
was
experiencing subsided and in about 8 weeks disappeared altogether.

Dr. Wang successfully stopped my heavy non-stop two months menstrual bleeding with only two treatments.
The first treatment stopped 99% of the bleeding. Two days later, a second treatment wraps up the rest.
I went to see my family doctor when my menstrual bleeding wouldn't stop for two weeks. I was diagnosed
anemia and told to start taking iron supplements. The doctor prescribed birth control pills to stop the heavy
bleeding and advised me to see OB/GYN A.S.A.P. The bleeding slowed a few days then started heavy again.
Two weeks later when I got my OB/GYN appointment, I was sent to do a pelvic ultrasound, and got another
set of prescribed birth control pills to slow the bleeding.  The staff in the doctor office told me that they would
call me to set up next appointment once the ultrasound results were in. One week without hearing from the
doctor, I called the doctor office, and got an answer that they would call me next week. 14 days later, I called
again and was told that the doctor’s next available appointment would be one month later.  I then strongly
requested to set up appointment with another doctor. Reluctantly, they gave me a ten-days-later appointment.
In the mean time, I notice I gain 8 pounds weight within 15 days, and start to have a very protruding lower
abdominal. I was diagnosed with uterine fibroids a year ago, but told not to worry. I suspect that those
prescribed estrogenic birth control pills worsening my uterine fibroids situations quickly.
60+ days into non-stop bleeding, I started to search for alternative treatments, luckily one night I found Dr.
Wang from The Acupuncturists Directory on the Internet and am impressed by her 30+ years’ experiences. I
called her next morning, and she saw me right away!!  The night of the first treatment, I notice that my uterine
bleeding almost stop, with only occasional drops.  The second treatment totally stopped the bleeding and
gave my life back. Then, the ten-days-later (one month after the pelvic ultrasound) appointment with OB/GYN
arrived, the doctor told me that I have diffuse fibroid uterus, the uterus is heterogeneously enlarged, that’s
why I looked like into 3 to 4 months pregnant and the best treatment would be HYSTERECTOMY.
I would have surrendered to hysterectomy, had I not come to Dr. Wang. After the uterine bleeding stop, I
continue the acupuncture treatment with Dr. Wang for the uterine fibroids. The ultrasound showed the
fibroids have shrunk to smaller sizes and I no longer look like a 3-month-pregnant woman. I am so grateful
for Dr. Wang’s help.

Ulcerative Colitis

I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 1998 and was prescribed Asacol, which worked well for almost two
years. I did’t believe my gastroenterologist when he told me that diet had nothing to do with my problem. So I
started looking for a natural cure when the medicine (Asaco and Rowasa) quit working and nothing in the
allopathic arsenal would work. I was not interested in what they called a cure-surgical removal of my colon!

Unfortunately, the world is full of shysters and crooks. My first foray into a natural treatment was “The maker’s
Diet” and garden of Life supplements. That religious angle can be an effective con. When I would call the
dealers to tell them the supplements were not working, they would say, “ Take more, and God bless you.”
I was so sick and disillusioned. After that, I went back to my gastroenterologist and he put me on Prednisone.
Almost immediately, that stuff made me wish I was dead.

Luckily, I found Lihua Wang, who has been treating me with acupuncture and Chinese herbs since April
2008. The results of the treatments are very successfully and with no side effects.
