Anxiety-Panic & Depression

Anxiety With Severe Panic

From: healerjess@gmail.com & wwwratemdscom                09/29/2014

I’ve suffered from panic attacks since the age of 16. My first appointment with Dr. Yang was life changing for me. Not only did Dr. Yang take her time, offer compassion along with her extensive knowledge and expertise, she reassured me that I would be OK and there is light at the end of the tunnel. During my treatment I could feel a pulsing of energy flowing through my body. It was as though my body was, energetically, jumping up and down with Joy saying, “finally! We are clearing out the old!”. Immediately after my first treatment, my complexion was glowing and the only way I can explain it, I felt “lighter”. I follow Dr. Yang’s nutritional recommendations and have gained healthy weight, feel I can manage stress easier, have barely any panic (was at a 9-10 prior to my 1st treatment and now a 1), and I’m sleeping much better! By my 3rd Acupuncture treatment, I found I was actually falling asleep during! I appreciate and am so very grateful to Dr. Yang and her staff for their expertise, compassion, and time in helping me to clear the energy blocks that were contributing and causing panic within my being.

Sever Panic With Body muscle Twitching /Jerking

From:  vrusselljr@gmail.com                                             02/15/2015

To: myacupuncture2014@gmailcom

I suffer from Anxiety, which causes Depersonalization, Panic attack and fatigue. Those symptoms weren’t limited to a single attack but would continue through the day non-stop. After just one treatment I noticed the effects immediately, I could manage my stress better and calm myself down when in these attacks. From the subsequent treatments my ability to control how I feel greatly increased. I also had twitching when min social situations due to the stressful nature of some scenarios.  During some of the treatments Dr. Yang targeted my neck, which was the cause of the twitching. The number halved after just one treatment and keeps decreasing as time goes on. After 9 treatments my anxious behavior has greatly improved and continues to get better. Dr. Yang, thank you very much.

Severe Depression with Multiple Symptoms- JRA, POTS, Syncope Endometriosis, Poor Appetite, Insomnia

I am a 15 year old girl. I have been suffering from multiple problems such as Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis (JRA), Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS), Neurocardiogenic, Syncope, Depression, Endometriosis, Lack of eating, and some Sleeping Problems. I have had my JRA since I was 9 years old, my parents would run back and forth with me to the local ER, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, and DuPont Hospital in Delaware. Throughout all the visits and stays in the various hospitals and the many kinds of specialist I had visit all they could ever do for me was give me pain medication. After I had been switched back and forth from multiple doctors and been on many different pain management programs and drugs, my doctor from DuPont finally suggested going to an acupuncturist he said that it couldn’t hurt. After being in pain for six years and holding in my frustrations I was more than willing to do anything. So my mom went to her computer and started looking up acupuncturists in our area. Dr. Ming Yang had caught her attention; she was impressed with the fact that she was studying neuroscience. We went ahead and made the appointment; once we arrived Dr. Ming Yang instantly greeted us with a warm and happy face. She was unlike any doctor I had gone to before. She took the time to sit there with us and get to know me. She cared about how I felt and treated me as human being instead of “another patient.” After my first treatment I felt immediate results in the way I felt emotionally and physically. After my third treatment it was as if I was a completely different person. I went back to the doctor, after my second to last acupuncture that had referred me to acupuncture and he himself said I was a completely different person and that he no longer felt the need to put me on any of the anti-depressants he was planning to. I will never be able to thank Dr. Ming Yang enough for what she has done for me. I am truly sad that I had to move away, yet you can be sure that about every 3-4 months I will be going up to Voorhees to see Dr. Ming Yang and get a routine maintenance check-up.

Depression, Bi-Polar Disorder-Psychosis & Extremely Heavy Menstruation

Testimonial from Alida Bowley

To: myacupuncture2008@yahoocom

Last fall, our daughter was diagnosed with severe depression by both a neurologist and a psychiatrist, the psychiatrist adding additional diagnoses of bi-polar disorder and psychosis. Both told us that the only way to address this mental disorder was with lifelong anti-depressant drugs. Because our thought was that our daughter’s illness might be correlated with her recent start of birth control pills (these prescribed by her gynecologist to control her extremely heavy menstrual flow), we felt that the introduction of another medication would only pose an additional and equally serious challenge to her already compromised well-being. We, therefore, turned to Chinese medicine for a more natural way to her healing. Dr Yang kindly received us and listened carefully to our concerns. She encouraged our daughter to take steps to begin eating normally again, to take daily vitamins, and to be conscientious in keeping regular hours for sleep. Over several months of acupuncture treatments, gradual but significant improvements became evident. Dr Yang was supportive the entire time, through our ups and downs, and when we had questions about the course of treatment and its effectiveness. After about eight months, our daughter herself was able to make the decision that she no longer needed the support of acupuncture, which prior to this time, she would not have been able to make objectively as her thought processes were then compromised. Our daughter has now returned to the person we knew her to be before the onset of her illness.

We thank you, Dr Yang, for taking on the challenge that our daughter presented and for assisting her recovery through Chinese natural medicine, the path that western traditional medicine mistakenly chooses to ignore. We believe that too many people are unnecessarily medicated and over-medicated, and unfairly suffer from serious side effects from a regimen of drugs, to the wrongful benefit of pharmacies and the manufacturers of drugs who see profits at the expense of escalating health insurance costs and the individual’s right to natural healing.

I am a 44 yr old African American male, divorcee, and father of a 23 yr old daughter in grad. school and a 18 yr old son in undergrad. For over 35 yrs, I have suffered from depression and anxieties. Nine years ago after an emotional separation and divorce my depression, various anxieties, decrease in energy and a noticeable lost in long and short term memory consumed my life. I sought help from physicians, hypnotist, vitamins, energy drinks and pills but nothing gave me prolong relief.

Four months ago, my fiancée suggested I seek help from an Acupuncturist. I have always been fascinated with Eastern Medicine and since Western Disciplines had failed me. It was time to try a Medical procedure that has been in practice for over 3,000 years and is still in practice today. I researched the procedures involved with acupuncture and the results claimed by it’s patients. I was truly impressed by what I discovered. Now, with research in hand I had to find an Acupuncturist with the experience in treating patients like me. After reading Dr. Yang’s educational and practical background I knew I had found the one for me.

After my first appointment, I noticed an increase in my energy level, decrease in episodes of depression and anxiety attacks, and an increase in cognitive abilities. By myseventh appointment, I felt like I did when I was 18 yrs old. I just completed my fourteenthappointment and I no longer suffer from bouts of depression, anxieties and I am back in the gym.  My quality of overall well being has not been at this level in a very long time.

Dr. Yang, thank you for your dedication to the practice of acupuncture, and for giving me a new lease on life.

My anxiety was unbearable for such a long time. I tried many other treatments but none of them seemed to work. A family member of mine got me interested when they said acupuncture helped them. My first visit I was a little scared but Dr Yang was so kind there was nothing to be afraid of. After my first treatment I noticed a remarkable change. My overall attitude felt much better, I had more energy, and I wasn’t so worried anymore. I am still getting acupuncture done and I look forward to each session. I love it!! Acupuncture has worked for me and it will work for you with the help of Dr. Yang. Dr Yang is a great Doctor and I can’t thank her enough. There is hope for whatever you going through. Don’t worry!!

I first came to Dr. Yang in April 2008 – primarily to treat Anxiety, dizziness and Headache issues that I have wrestled with for almost 20 years. Having tried many “traditional” therapies – I came to acupuncture with an open mind – and guarded optimism. I was very please to find that within a month of treatment, the frequency and level of my anxieties had significantly decreased from about a “9” (on a scale of 1 – 10) to about a “2” and at times even a “1” – accompanied by very significant improvements in my dizziness and Headache issues as well. An unexpected plus was a strong improvement in my overall well being and energy level! Dr. Yang also took the time to explain the importance of plenty of rest, good nutritional balance coupled with a positive, happy view of life – enhancing my emotional well being as well.

Bladder Out Of Control

Interstitial Cystitis

Subject: testimonial from Kelly Elmore

For many years I have suffered with Interstitial Cystitis. This is a disease of the bladder lining with no known cause or cure. The symptoms mock those of a urinary tract infection. After visiting with numerous Urologists, I was told there are limited ways to treat this disease and I would have to learn to live with the pain. As an avid runner, mother, wife, and full time employee, this did not settle well. After watching an episode of Oprah on alternative medicine, I decided to give acupuncture a try. I found Dr. Ming Yang in my town. She possessed amazing credentials and was pleasant to speak with on the phone. We scheduled my first appointment, where she thoroughly explained the procedure and theory behind it. By my second and third treatment, I had amazing progress. I was urinating less, but more importantly, I was not having any bladder flare ups. I am continuing my treatments but not as frequently. I can say I am now 100% pain free. I have reduced my medicine dosage by 75% and feel fantastic. Dr. Yang is a true angel with a gift. She has impacted my life and family in a way I can never explain. I will forever be thankful to her.

Hello Dr. Ming Yang,

I am an 81 year old female and I’ve had remarkable results due to your acupuncture treatments. Every week has brought new discoveries as to how my health is improving under your expert care. I’ve had trouble with constipation and now I’m not using any laxative supplements and having more frequent and productive bowel movements daily (one or two per day).  I’m also sleeping much better as my bladder control has greatly improved. I find I’m getting more sleep with less disturbance as I do not need to go to the bathroom often during the night. I’m sleeping better overall and enjoying deep sleep during the night. Two other remarkable improvements have surfaced of late… my toe nails are now easier to trim and my lungs are better... I’m not getting out of breath when I take walks with my daughter. My energy level has improved, I’m more comfortable and feeling lighter. 

Thank you ever so much for all the help you continue to bring me… My quality of life has definitely improved! 

Sincerely,

Chemotherapy (Treating Side Effects of Chemotherapy)

   Chemotherapy & External Radiation Therapy For Breast Cancer

 From: pbinck@MyRepublicBank 02/14/2014, 4:32:47pm

To: myacupuncture2008@yahoo.com

I originally met with Dr. Yang in August to discuss acupuncture for smoking cessation. During the initial consultation we reviewed my current medical condition. I had recently been diagnosed with breast cancer and was undergoing chemotherapy treatment, at that time I was on round 3 of 16 treatments. By the 3rd treatment the intensity of the side effects had increased tremendously and the expectation was the accumulative treatments would only worsen the side effects. During our meeting Dr. Yang proposed an acupuncture treatment which combines both Chinese and Western Medicine knowledge, a vitamin regiment (much less than I was taking), proper diet, and rest to ease the side effects and strengthen the body.

I started acupuncture treatment on August 19 of 2013 and experience immediate relief from the follow side effects: Nausea, metal taste, watery eye and runny nose. I would also compare the side effects felt after the 4th chemo treatment similar to the 2nd treatment when in fact I was expecting them to increase in intensity.

Acupuncture schedule was twice a week Monday and Thursday (treatment day). For two weeks the schedule was changed to Tuesday and Saturday but results were best when one acupuncture treatment was performed on the day chemo was administered.

I continued with acupuncture throughout my chemo treatment and there was either a significant reduction in the intensity of the side effect such as fatigue, body aches, yellowing of the skin or the elimination of the side effect completely which was the case for the anxiety, depression, chronic rib pain and neuropathy in the hands. Both white and red blood counts continued to improve during chemo treatment. Early on during Chemo my hemoglobin was 9 and during acupuncture levels were sustained at 11.8 to 12.

With the exception of days that I had chemotherapy treatments I did not miss a day of work. I finish chemo on 11/21/13 and began external radiation therapy 12/12/13 which concluded 2/6/2014. I continued to see Dr Yang during radiation therapy and experienced little to no fatigue.

In addition I was diagnosed with acute high blood pressure in 1982 and have taken medication since. Even with medication, although stable, my BP would normally be 150/80. During chemo treatment I struggle with both high and low blood pressure, after a few acupuncture sessions my blood pressure stabilized and now is 130/70.

Treatment regiment:

First round Chemo treatment beginning 7/11/2013 Second round Chemo treatment beginning 9/5/2013

Adriamycin and Cytoxan 4 treatment Bi-weekly. Paclitaxel 12 treatment every week

Aloxi and Emenda for nausea 8 mg steroids taken the day before and 8mg the day of treatment

Neulasta injection the day after treatment Benadryl and oral anti nausea taken the day before and the day of chemo

Steroids 09/12/2013 Steroid dose reduced to 4 mg day of treatment

Side effects experienced: Nausea, Fatigue, Heaviness in chest, Anxious, Depressed, Body aches, Chronic rib pain, Metal taste some food had no taste, Constant watery eye and runny nose, Total hair loss, yellowing of the skin Neulasta injection caused pain in all bones, Neuropathy both in the hands and feet.

Diabetes Type 1 and Wrist Pain

My name is Chris and I am 21 years old. I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in September 2013. I started coming to Dr. Yang due to pain in my wrists because of Carpel Tunnel Syndrome in October 2013. When I met with Dr. Yang I also told her that I was just diagnosed with Diabetes. Dr. Yang stated she will not just concentrate on my wrist pain, but also my diabetes. When I started therapy, my AC1 was 9.5 and my triglycerides was 358. In December 2013, I had my blood tests for my Diabetes and follow up with my Endocrinologist. My Doctor was very happy with me due to my AC1 dropping to 7.5 and my triglycerides to 53 (normal range) in such a short amount of time. Not only has my wrist pain dropped dramatically, but I believe this therapy helped my Diabetes get under control.

Fibromyalgia

Fibryomalgia & Withdrawing Conventional Pain Meds

From: www.ratemds.com                                              Submitted on  01/16/2015

I have suffered from Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue for 24 years. Over those years, I have tried countless treatments and been on numerous medications. Some have helped for a short while, but overall, nothing has really helped my overwhelming pain and fatigue issues. For the past few years, I have been taking 10 different medications including Celebrex, Cymbalta and Lyrica, which have some serious side effects. I started seeing Dr. Yang in October, not expecting acupuncture to help me at all, but willing to try anything. The results I have had with her are incredible. She had helped me wean off all of my medications, treating the withdrawal effects, and lowering my pain level significantly. For the first time in 24 years, I am not taking any medications. My pain level has been reduced from a “10” to a manageable “3”. I am so thankful that I found her. She is very caring and compassionate. She truly wants to help her patients. I would recommend her to everyone.

Fibromyalgia, Insomnia & Left Thumb Osteoarthritis Pain

From: John and Dianne <jcarmody7@comcast.net>

Sent: Thursday, June 14, 2007 11:33:54 AM

I have become a believer in the powers of acupuncture, and more specifically in the powers of Dr. Ming Yang. I was diagnosed several years ago with Fibromyalgia, which is not a degenerative disease, but it did cause me a great deal of pain and discomfort. I have struggled with this disease, and although medication (sleep aids, nsaids and antidepressants) made it easier to bear, I was never without its negative effects. Lack of sleep and stress exacerbated the pain and discomfort.

About a year ago, I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis, which had already seriously damaged the thumb joint in my left hand. It is extremely painful and beyond treatment, other than surgery. Ironically, it is the pain in my hand that led me to seek out an acupuncture specialist, but it is my Fibromyalgia that has improved the most. Thank you to Dr. Yang, I rarely experience any discomfort from my Fibromyalgia. I sleep better and have so much more energy. I can deal much better with the stresses of my life, which include the usual demands of family, along with a challenging job. My hand has also improved, and I deal better with the pain.

I continue to go to Dr. Yang twice a week, and have brought two of my loved ones to her for help. What greater testimonial could there be than the willingness to place these special people in her hands?

I have to admit that I was nervous before my first visit, but any concerns I had were quickly wiped away. Dr. Yang is a wonderful person, and her warm welcome put me instantly at ease. In additional to her impressive credentials, she is a very kind and caring person. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking help with Fibromyalgia,Osteoarthritis, insomnia, or any other problem that has not responded well to traditional western medicine.

Fibromyalgia & Severe Sciatica                                                                                                                                                            5/2012

I am a 56 year old female who has recently been declared permanently disabled due to degenerative spinal disease (18 damaged discs). In addition, I suffered for years with severe sciatica (EMG showing ongoing nerve damage) which did not adequately respond to physical therapy, water therapy, traction, facet joint injections, epidural injections and various other pain management techniques. I have had fibromyalgia for more than 30 years which would flare up in the autumn but for the past year I endured a fibromyalgia flare up (due to the chronic pain) that was so severe and long-lasting that the insomnia, fatigue, migraines and muscle pain was a constant hell which made me question my ability to live… especially since there was no relief or hope of a cure. Yoga, meditation, supplements and medication helped me to put one foot in front of the other each day but just barely; my quality of life was gone.

After researching, interviewing and rejecting several acupuncturists because they either didn’t have the qualifications I sought or because they required treatment packages with high fees, I finally found Dr. Yang. Not only are her credentials an exceptional trifecta (MD, PhD in neuroscience and Chinese trained acupuncturist) she has decades of experience and truly cares about helping her patients.

I have not had a single migraine or any sort of headache since beginning treatment but most astonishing is that my energy levels are so much higher! I am sleeping much better and sleep is key to preventing and/or recovering from a severe fibromyalgia flare up. Yesterday I felt better than I have in several years and my constitution feels much stronger!! My pain levels are lower and the stress and anxiety/depression from chronic pain (due to the damaged discs, sciatica, fibro and polyarthritis) is much more manageable. This is literally a life saver!!

I realize now that I spent years with unnecessary suffering and wish I had tried acupuncture (specifically from Dr. Yang) before all of the failed or suboptimal Western medications and treatments. If you want to feel better, don’t delay treatment with Dr. Yang and do as she tells you.

I do not publish my email but I would be happy to correspond with prospective patients. Ask Dr. Yang how you can contact me if you would like more information.

Headaches / Migraines

Severe Migraine, Anxiety & Poor Nutrition

From: niccolettil@aol.com                         Oct 20 at 12:42 PM

To: myacupuncture2014@gmail.com 

I am a 41 year old woman who has suffered from debilitating migraines since the age of 19. I was diagnosed with classic migraine and prescribed Imitrex. No other over the counter meds worked for me but Imitrex was a miracle drug. I would continue to take Imitrex as needed for the next 21 years. The problem was I was constantly worrying whether my allowance of 9 pills would even last me until my next refill. I suffered far more than 9 severe headaches a month. I saw all the doctors (neuro specialists included) but none of them offered me a real solution. Beta blockers or other drugs I would have to take everyday just were not for me; yet, the doctors said I could not continue to take Imitrex as it seemed my body was no longer responding to it.  Migraine had begun controling too much of my life. Would I enjoy the weekend with my family? Will I need to use up my sick days for work? It was a burden. Something had to change. This is when I decided to give acupuncture a chance. Even after calling Dr Yang I was hesitant. It took a few conversations on the phone before I finally agreed my health and well being needed to take priority. I am a busy working mother and, like many women, I let my own personal needs come last. Dr Yang convinced me to come in, and I am thankful she did. I gave up Imitrex. Yes, it was a scary thought. But, I did it. Dr Yang told me I had to detox my body from it. It was now a toxin. That was July 8, 2014, the day of my first treatment. Today is Oct 20, 2014, the day of my 5th treatment. I have been pain free all the days in between. Re read that last sentence because it is true. At 41, I am no longer a prisoner to Imitrex or pain. I leave my house free of worry ~and without medication. I urge you to give acupuncture a chance. You have nothing to fear or to lose. It does work. My life has changed. And, acupuncture has brought me other benefits. I am more centered, sleep better, and take life’s challenges more in stride. My diet has improved under Dr Yang’s supervision as well. Dr Yang’s treatment has been a wonderful gift. I am incredibly thankful.

To Whom it May Concern,

I would like to testify that I am so grateful for the acupuncture care that my mother (who is now 100 years old) has received from Dr. Ming Yang in Voorhees, NJ. My mother gets periodic (every few months or so) episodes of continuous agonizing occipital neuralgia. She describes it as a knife or hatchet continuously slashing through her ear, face and jaw. Prior to having acupuncture, her doctors maintained her on continuous doses of Vicudan for the extent of the attack-which was often a week or 10 days. I am quite sure that my mother would not have survived to this age were Dr. Yang not available to treat her. Besides her skill in acupuncture, her personal concern and care for my mother has been so helpful. She always got my mother in immediately understanding that her advanced age and fragility created great difficulties. Also, she felt for pain spots along the meridians and was thus able to cure more than just the reason we came. My mother’s health always vastly improved after Dr. Yang’s visit. And best of all, my Mother trusts Dr. Yang implicitly. That is no small gift for me, since getting my mother the care she needs can sometimes be difficult if the relationship with the care provider is not optimal.

I will be eternally grateful to Dr. Yang for her wonderful care and concern. The pictures of them were taken on my cell phone days before my mother’s 100th birthday party. My mother was well to truly enjoy her party. Again: thank you Dr. Yang!

I have been suffering from migraines since I was 25 years of age and at that time my family Dr had put me on Maxalt. This seemed to work for a while but then they got out of control and they started to give shots in the back of my head between my skull & spine, which was being done every two weeks for several months, until the Dr that was doing this left. They sent me to have epidurals in my neck thinking this would help, instead it hurt & I said never again. I moved out of state & they seemed to calm down for a while but they did start again but not as bad so my family Dr (different Dr) put me on Topamax & Max-alt once again, this did seem to work for a while. I moved back to New Jersey in 2006 and they were coming back three times a week, when I went to my new family Dr they had me go to a Neurologist. I went and had all the test they could have me have, brain scans, MRI’s blood work, they came up with trying different meds. I didn’t care for that Dr so my husband & I changed to one of the top Neurologist in Cooper & she put me on Nortriptylin, Verapamil, Zoloft, Treximet and Promethazine. I couldn’t understand why I was put on blood pressure medicine when I never had high blood pressure, I was told this should keep my vessels open, I wanted this to work so I tried, but like all the other times I guess my body got use to the medicine & they stopped working. I was up to 12 pills a day & they were just for migraines! I had a really bad migraine that put me out of work for 3 days & fearing I would lose my job I looked other help & that’s when I found acupuncture. This is when I meant DR Ming Yang, my miracle doctor, I e-mailed her telling her a little of my issues & she immediately called me back within an hour & said she believed she could help. I made an appointment & she explained everything to me & my husband & we decided to give it a try & I am HAPPY to say I have had five treatments and have been going since the 23rd of Feb. and have had NO major migraines! I had one little one but I was able to handle that but I really consider that Dr. Ming Yang is my savior, I had no life & she has given back to me & I can’t thank her enough. I feel that you have to have faith that it will work before you go, I was at my wits end I had nowhere else to go & she has turned me around. My husband makes sure that we stay within all her suggestions & do what she says because she diffidently knows what she is talking about. My husband says he loves it because I am smiling once again & enjoying life! Dr Yang is also treating me for my allergies. I just can’t believe how I have suffered for the last six years having a migraine at least 5 out of 7 days & now going for over a month with no migraines, it’s like having a new life again!
Thank you Dr. Yang for everything you have done for me! You have given me my life back & I can once again enjoy being with my husband!

I am 51 years old and since my 20’s I have suffered from severe headaches.  I also suffered with Irritable Bowel Syndrome.  Last 3 years my headaches became more frequent and intense to the point that I had only 4 “headache free” days a month.  My headaches were not classified as migraine, they were cluster headaches that would rebound continuously.  I had been to 2 Neurologists, 1 Chiropractor, 1 Shrink, and 1 Allergist during the last 3 years.  Numerous medications were tried.  I finally tried acupuncture and met Dr. Ming Yang.  She listened intently to everything I told her. 

She did a very good assessment of my condition.  She told me that my headaches were emotional and stress related.  She treated my whole body and the IBS disappeared after one treatment.  By the third treatment there was significant improvement in my headaches.  I could go almost a week headache free.  By the 5th treatment I felt even better.  After 6 treatments my use of headache medications is down by 75-85 %.  Dr. Ming Yang truly cares about helping people, most important SHE LISTENS TO YOU.

Hi, Ming!

I’ve never suffered from a serious chronic condition, but over the past few years, I’ve been experiencing low energy, insomnia, weight gain, and a variety of aches and pains—all of which I attributed to menopause, or perhaps just plain aging.  Finally, my overall condition led to me seek the help of Dr. Ming Yang, with quite satisfying results.

After a thorough assessment, Dr. Yang began an overall treatment designed to improve my energy level and sleep habits.  After about a month of weekly treatments, I began to sleep well, and feel relaxed and alert instead of enervated. In addition, many of the so-called effects of “aging” (including hot flashes, fluid retention, and joint pains) began to diminish.  Today, after 8 months of treatments, I feel more vitality than I have in years, and my overall well-being is continuing to improve. 

I continue to receive weekly treatments, and I would highly recommend acupuncture—and specifically treatments from Dr. Yang— to anyone who is interested in maintaining health and well-being throughout all stages of life.

Chronic Fatigue, Brain Foggy & Over Stress

 From:  r.kovacs@juno.com                                                1/2/2015

To: myacupuncture2014@gmail.com

To Whom it May Concern:                                                                

I have been a patient of Dr. Ming Yang since approximately April, 2014.  I consulted with Dr. Yang because I was physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausted and constantly sick.  Over the past year, I had battled two chronic sinus infections and severe chronic bronchitis, brain fogginess, weakness, heart palpitations and lack of energy.  I couldn’t seem to rebound and get better.  My job as a special education teacher with the severe special needs population was very stressful and left me extremely depleted and without energy.  

     Dr. Yang conducted an in-depth and comprehensive interview with me.  She instructed me to eliminate harmful toxins from my diet and helped me manage my mental and emotional wellbeing.  I began intensive acupuncture treatments for the first few months.  As my symptoms started to improve, the treatments were faded to once a week and then eventually once every two weeks.

     I am happy to say that over the past nine months, my health has improved dramatically.  I no longer experience any of the previous illnesses and my energy levels have also increased.  I am also better able to handle the stresses and demands of my job.  Dr. Yang has improved my quality of life dramatically.  I would enthusiastically recommend Dr. Yang to anyone.  Thank you Dr. Yang!

Insomnia, Water Retention, Chronic Fatigue, Neck, Back and Knee Pain

From: Renee Binns
To: myacupuncture2008@yahoo.com

I have suffered from hives for about 6 months and had tried a lot of different medications and supplements to cure it but to no avail. I also had other problems such as water retention, insomnia, low energy level, knee pain, neck pain, back pain and allergy. I did some research and found Dr. Ming Yang. She is a wonderful and caring person. She started treating my hives along with my other problems and after a few treatments my hives were greatly reduced and I felt so much more energy. My water retention problem was improved, I slept better and my mood has also changed. I never feel this energetic and excited for as long as I can remember. These treatments not only cured my hives completely, but it also improved my other problems as well. For those who suffer from hives or other health problems, I highly recommend to get acupuncture treatments from Dr. Ming Yang. She is truly an angel sent from above to help people. Not only she is smart and gifted, but she also has a good heart and very generous and loving to everybody. I feel so fortunate that God has introduced me to her and I wish her all the best.

Dear Dr. Yang

I wanted to thank you for your help with my IBS problems.  I had been experience chronic diarrhea for over 6 months and had tried traditional medical treatments with no success.  After just three treatments of acupuncture my symptoms disappeared and as of now they have not returned.  I have been able to resume my normal functioning.

Although I came to you with many different symptoms ranging from lower back pain, diarrhea, dry skin, and weight gain your honest assessment as to what I could expect was appreciated. You told me what I could expect to get relief from and gave me suggestions to help with symptoms that you felt could not be totally eliminated with acupuncture. In the past thirteen treatments I have had amazing results.  My diarrhea has been corrected, my skin is less dry, I feel more energetic and less stressed.

Your experience, honest feedback and warm manner all added to an outcome that was more than I could have hoped for.  I will continue treatment with you and I am sure I will continue to experience relief from my long standing IBS problems.

Fondly

IBS  & Severe Headache

From: Paul Malkowicz
Sent: Sunday, May 13, 2007 5:45:01 PM
Subject: Testimonial

I am 51 years old and since my 20’s I have suffered from severe headaches.  I also suffered with Irritable Bowel Syndrome.  Last 3 years my headaches became more frequent and intense to the point that I had only 4 “headache free” days a month.  My headaches were not classified as migraine, they were cluster headaches that would rebound continuously.  I had been to 2 Neurologists, 1 Chiropractor, 1 Shrink, and 1 Allergist during the last 3 years.  Numerous medications were tried.  I finally tried acupuncture and met Dr. Ming Yang.  She listened intently to everything I told her. 

She did a very good assessment of my condition.  She told me that my headaches were emotional and stress related.  She treated my whole body and the IBS disappeared after one treatment.  By the third treatment there was significant improvement in my headaches.  I could go almost a week headache free.  By the 5th treatment I felt even better.  After 6 treatments my use of headache medications is down by 75-85 %.  Dr. Ming Yang truly cares about helping people, most important SHE LISTENS TO YOU.

Gynecological Disorders: Irregular Menstruation & Infertility,

Painful Menstruation, PMS, ACNE, Over Eating & Unexlained Symptoms Due to  Severe Anxiety, Depression,

Looking back at this ongoing experience I can’t help but wonder how I lived for so long in so much pain.  When you’re 23 years old and feel your world is crumbling around you, there is something wrong. Before my treatments with Dr. Yang, I felt acupuncture was my last hope, but had no idea it would have such a positive, life changing effect on my health.  For the past three years I’ve been suffering with horrendous symptoms that I honestly wouldn’t believe a 23 yr. old having. Just to name a few of my symptoms – mood swings, anger, depressions, anxiety, uncontrollable appetite, water retention, sweats, painful and light periods, dryness, heart palpitations, and severe acne. PMS, acne and unexplainable symptoms during my cycle were taking over my life. During this time of the month, I had no control over my bodily functions and had debilitating pain that left me in a trance of paralyzing pain.  I tried everything, and it was to the point that my Gyno thought I was crazing.

After only a couple treatments with Dr. Yang my symptoms started to get less and less.  After 2 months of treatment my acne cleared drastically, and my PMS was dwindling down to nothing.  Now with 6 months of treatment not only is my complection flawless, I have no PMS, and very little cramping.  I plan to continue treatment because it has given me my life back.

Dr. Yang is amazing.  I never met a doctor that truly cares and takes the time to listen.  She is patience, understanding, compassionate and makes solid relationships. Dr. Yang is an angle sent down from heaven, and I feel privileged to be one of her patients.

I use to always hear the miracle stories and wonder why I couldn’t find anything out there for me that had real results.  Now, I can finally be one of those people, and it’s all because of Dr. Yang!

PMS

From: Rosana www.ratemds.com

I am a 39 yr old woman that has suffered from extreme menstral symptoms, melasma & emotional stress for yrs. I was told by 3 gynocologists that my only options for the menstral symptoms were the Merena or a hysterectomy. Since neither were viable options for me, I began thoroughly researching alternatives when I found acupuncture & the practice of TCM. Surprisingly, research showed the positives consistently outweighing the negatives with supporting testimonies that were irrefutable so I began seeing Dr Yang in mid-January. I have had 8 sessions & haven’t felt better in years! My menstral symptoms have improved by 75%, my stress/anxiety and the associated aches and pains have reduced by 50% and although nominal, my melasma is lightening and diminishing in some areas which makes me extremely hopeful! Especially since doctors don’t know the cause or have a cure yet. Although expensive, I have and will continue to recommend Dr Yang for her 23 yrs of experience & inimitable experience.

Heavy Menstruation & TMJ

From: amtrich@comcast.net                                        2:02pm 12/29/2014

To: myacupuncture2014@gmail.com

In Spring of 2013 I began to feel a sharp pain on the side of my head right in front of my left ear. I assumed it was an ear infection but decided to pay a visit to my family

doctor. Her initial diagnosis was either TMJ or Trigeminal Neuralgia. She ordered X-Rays and prescribed Lyrica. The X-rays did not show any findings and the Lyrica gave me horrible side effects so I decided to not take it anymore.

I then went to an ENT doctor and he did not find any damage or blockage in my ear and suggested I visit my dentist for TMJ. My dentist suggested expensive braces or have an uncomfortable mouth guard fitted for me. I did not like either options and continued to suffer extensive pain that would last 4-6 hours. I was taking 800 mg of Ibuprofen and had to travel with a heating pad wherever I went. It affected my work and home life. I could not concentrate at work and as a result, my performance was not to my capability. My family at home would see me in tears or lying in bed with a heating pad for hours. I would miss sitting for dinner with them and family time before bedtime.

In October of 2013 my pain level increased to a point where I could not stand on my feet and forced me to sit or lay down. I was popping 800 mg of Ibuprofen 3 times a day to help with the pain. I went to the ER one weekend when I could not deal with the pain any longer. A cat scan did not reveal a diagnosis and the ER doctor suggested I continue the Lyrica and be treated as if I had Trigeminal Neuralgia. I suffered the side effects and the medicine did not help.

I then went to a Neurologist and had an MRI done, which did not reveal a diagnosis. The Neurologist did not have any suggestions other than retaking the MRI in 6 months.

I was suffering with this pain for over a year at the time and felt like my life would be living with a constant pain and this caused me to be depressed. I could not afford the braces and considered the mouth guard to be fitted. At the same time, I visited a Pain Management doctor and was given steroid shots directly in my jaw.

These shots were painful and helped for about 4 months but the pain would return. I received a second session of shots but the pain continued and I was in despair after thinking I had found a solution to my pain. At this point, the pain was almost every day and lasted 6-8 hours. Ibuprofen and a heating pad managed the pain to a small degree but it was always there.

One day after I experienced a terrible day of pain at work, my husband suggested I see an Acupuncturist. He researched the Internet and found Dr. Yang. I spoke with Dr. Yang and explained what I was going through and she made me an appointment the very next day. I was not hopeful of good results since I had tried so many doctors and treatments along with not understanding the concept of Acupuncture.

Dr. Yang took the time to listen to my experiences with the pain, my sleeping and eating habits and how I live my life overall. She immediately suggested sleeping earlier and drinking lots more water along with adding different types of food into my diet. I have had a sleeping problem for as long as I can remember. I either could not fall asleep for hours or fell asleep immediately and woke up hours before I had to. I also had very irregular and heavy menstrual cycles due to being pre menopausal. I was takingLysteda on a monthly basis to help with these issues.

Dr. Yang’s process of treating the entire body as opposed to a specific area has changed my life. After just 7 sessions of holistically acupuncture treatment, my pain decreased immensely from over scale 10/10 to 0-1/10. The pain continued to decrease on a weekly basis and would last a much shorter time. My first menstrual cycle after my sessions was a normal cycle with minimal issues and I am no longer taking medication to help with my cycles.

I have been visiting Dr. Yang since October 10th of 2014 and now go every two weeks for maintenance sessions and have not had any pain since the end of October. I sleep 8 hours every night and drink 60 ounces of water a day. My skin tone is healthier, my menstrual cycles are normal, my anxiety level is low and most of all I am pain free. My family is not only happy that I am back to what I used to be but I am also improved and healthier due to better sleeping and eating habits.

I cannot thank Dr. Yang enough for encouraging me to keep up my habits and to be confident that her treatments do work!

Infertility & Over Body Weight & Foot Pain

From Ms. Shannon Long
To: myacupuncture2008@yahoo.com

I’m at 42YO female, overweight with numerous health issues. I have seen Dr. Yang for 8 sessions now. She has extensive knowledge in her practice and is very compassionate about helping her patients. I came to see Dr. Yang for some very serious stiffness & pain issues due to an autoimmune disease. I also am trying for a baby but Western medicine has deemed me unable to have any more kids (I have one). My mobility was severely compromised for years. Dr. Yang has successfully treated me for this as well as other secondary issues. My pain and stiffness are gone. My general sense of well being is definitely strong. I didn’t go in thinking that would happen but what a nice surprise. I just wanted the stiffness to subside. I now sleep more soundly, which helps my energy level and focus ability has clearly gone up. My stomach is less bloated and physically looser which is an improvement from the hard stomach I got after numerous fertility drugs/hormone therapies over the last few years. I will hope that the overall wellness I am feeling will assist me in having another child. Thank you Dr. Yang.

Muscle Twitching /Jerking

Neck Muscle Twitching / Jerking & Anxiety

From: maless826@yahoo.com                        01/26/2015        12:26 PM

To: myacupuncture2014@gmail.com

As a 22 year old I don’t normally have problems with how I am feeling or my body in general. However I had had a strange neck twitch since I was in high school and while it doesn’t affect my performance through my daily life it was becoming a nuisance to deal with and was getting to the point where something had to be done. I had gone to see a neurologist about it because it seemed like it might be a type of tourettes so they decided to treat it as such. They had me try several different medications and I saw little to no improvement on the problem. After trying them a cousin of mine suggested that I try acupuncture and after going to Dr. Ming Yang I was happy to see the improvement on my neck.  After the 5th visit I was hardly noticing the problem anymore and I have been feeling better than ever before. Putting the severity of my condition into numbers ranging from 1-10/10, 10/10 being the worst, my neck twitch went from a 10/10, to a 1-0/10, about 100 or so attacks a day lasting for up to 10 seconds, where I am only having 1 or 2 attacks a day  now lasting only a second. Using the same system my depression has went from a 3-2/10 to a 0/10 and my acne has gone down from a 6-5/10 to a 2-1/10 in terms of redness and itchiness. She has helped me improve my daily life as well as not have to worry about my neck pains/twitch anymore. I would recommend her highly to anyone seeking help before or after they try any medicinal help.

As Marc’s parents, we had just about given up on finding a cure for our son’s persistent neck and head twitching, when we found Dr. Yang.  We took Marc to every kind of doctor available and not one of them had the answer to his problem.  A cousin suggested acupuncture since it had helped her. I found Dr. Yang online and without any recommendation.  Her procedures on Marc have left him without a twitch.  It is awesome how she found his problem and solved it.  We recommend her highly.  You will not be disappointed.

I suffered for many years from back and neck pain. Then in 2010 I had a really bad car accident. I had many fractures-my left shoulder and arm. I have 3 rods and multiple pins in my left leg. I broke my right leg as well. I broke multiple ribs. Punctured three lungs and had multiple chest tubes. Also had multiple abdominal surgeries because of my accident. Actually 6 surgeries. Four years of rehab and multiple procedures – 8 epidural injections in a 2 year period- to help relieve my sever pain that I was constantly in. They didn’t work. What happen is that the injections elevated my blood sugars, then i became insulin depended for a while. I was on so many pain medication, OxyContin 30mg three times a day, oxycodone 10mg 4 times a day and morphine 40 mg two times a day. For nerve pain I was also taking Lyrica 150mg two times a day, Neurontin 100 mg two times a day. For sleep I was on melatonin 10mg, Elavil 50mg and trazodone 50 mg nightly and was till able to sleep at night. I felt miserable. My left leg was also always swallow and painful. My back and neck hurt. My stomach was also always upset, and hurt. Thank you Dr Yang for helping me regain my life back. Dr Yang detoxin me via acupuncture, and by my 8th acupuncture treatment, I No longer take any oxycodone, no OxyContin, no trazodone, no lyric, no Neurontin, no Elavil, and no more melatonin. The only pain medication now is Vicodin 7mg once maybe twice a day!! I’m on glipizide 15mg x l once daily for my diabetes and I’m sure I’ll be off of those soon as well. The swelling in my left leg is so minimal now, it’s unbelievable. My family can’t believe my energy level is back!! They say that I smile and laugh again. I truly didn’t know what to expect when I first went, now I can TRULY say acupuncture works and Dr Yang has helped in so very much. Thank You!!

Severe Lower Back Pain & Sciatica

Severe Post Surgery Lower Back Pain

From: arush2073
To: myacupuncture2008@yahoo.com,

In 1993, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. My symptoms were acute joint pain especially knees and hands and overall fatigue and depression. Over the years, my rheumatologist tried several different medications to alleviate my symptoms with some measure of success.

In 2007, I developed lower back and left leg numbness, tingling and pain, making walking for more than a few minutes excruciatingly painful. Activities of daily living were severely curtailed.

In 2010 an orthopedic spinal surgeon performed a lumbar fusion at L 3-4 and L4-5 along with decompression of the nerves. This surgery alleviated all of my symptoms for 8 months. A side effect of the surgery was numbness of my left buttock and perineum along with bowel and bladder incontinence.

Subsequently, the symptoms, I had prior to the back surgery returned and got progressively worse making walking or standing so painful again. The lumbar MRI showed the L2-3 level to be completely degenerated/crumbling impinging the nerves. The same orthopedic spine surgeon wanted to fuse this lumbar spinal level promising this would take care of my problems for good.

In an effort to avoid additional surgery I tried six weeks of Physical Therapy which did nothing to improve my symptoms.

By October of 2012, I could not stand to shower or cook, could not go shopping or walk my dogs. I couldn’t do any kind of housework. All I did was sit or lay down. Eventually could only lie on my left side.

Being a Registered Nurse, I understood what was going on and was told by all of my physicians, surgery was the only answer but every time, I thought of scheduling the surgery, I became so anxious.

My last resort was acupuncture and found Dr. Yang on the internet. Because of her MD (China) and PhD in Neurosciences I knew she would understand what was going on with my back.

In November of 2012, I had my initial consultation with Dr. Yang.Because, I’ve had these symptoms since February 2011, she wasn’t optimistic that acupuncture would help. My nerves had been compressed for quite a while plus the surgery had disturbed the natural anatomical structure of my spine. Dr. Yang asked me my level of pain on a scale from 1 to 10 (ten being the highest) and I said 9 because I didn’t know how much worse it could get. The pain in my left leg was crippling—could not think or do anything except look for the nearest chair.

Initially, the twice weekly treatments did not improve my low back pain or left leg pain. By treatment 10, we were both feeling as though it wasn’t going to work but I kept going because I had such a strong feeling that this was where I was supposed to be. By treatment 14, I noticed a very slight improvement in the left leg pain and how long I could stand, so I kept going twice a week and over time, the pain in the left leg got better.

Dr. Yang also treated my whole body with acupuncture to reduce my whole body swelling, pain, depression, anxiety, GERD and detoxified my body.

For the past 20 years, I took 14 different medications to treat Rheumatoid Arthritis, Low Thyroid, High Blood Pressure, Depression, Anxiety and GERD and am now down to 7 medications.

Each month my mobility improved and pain level dropped and as of thiswriting, can now walk my dogs for 45 minutes every day, do all of the grocery shopping and shopping at BJ’s or Lowes, play with my 2 grandsons, can take a shower standing up, lay in ANY position in bed. My overall body pain is NON-existent; my depression is much more manageable, the left leg pain and low back pain are mostly gone except if I overdue the activity and then the pain may be a level 1 or 2 until I sit down and then it goes away.

Dr. Yang has worked miracles for me!

I am writing this on June 24th 2013, the three year anniversary of my back surgery.

Severe Lower Back Pain Post Surgery With Over Stress

From: Curtis Waechtler Date: April 27, 2014, 5:34:11 PM EDT
To: myacupuncture2008@yahoo.com

Dr. Yang I appreciate how you have been patient and keep helping me little by little. I have had a number of significant health issues over the past 6 years, each life threatening. This included hospitalizations and emergency abdominal surgery. In addition I had been dealing with chronic back pain for over 20 years, leading finally to back surgery about 14 months before I started seeing Dr. Yang. The back surgery helped but I still had continuous back pain, made worse from stress of my job. I have always been very healthy and active, but all of these things were wearing me down to a point of deep discouragement and a point where I felt like I would have to quit my job. I work as a neuropsychologist in a medical rehabilitation hospital. So I was attracted to Dr. Yang, not only because I have heard and read good things about her, but also because of her work as a neuroscientist. I have only seen Dr. Yang for less than 3 months, but in this short time, I have made significant progress. I was taking and trying all kinds of medications, to help with my pain, poor sleep, extremely low energy and discouragement. I was skeptical about anything that might help. But from my first visit with Dr. Yang, I felt like I found someone who cared, really understood all I was going through and what I needed. I have been impressed with her sincere concern for helping me to get better. I have appreciated how she looks and treats the whole person, not just symptoms. As I neuropsychologist I appreciated how well she understood how medications were affecting me, my body, brain and psyche. I saw her as being energetic and always trying to tell me what I should do. At first I thought I was seeing another physician who was just trying to impress how important they were. But over time I have grown to know she really cares. Every time I call to change an appointment or have a question, she knows who I am, what I need and is willing to take time to talk. She has been helping me decrease and /or eliminate medications. My first step was improving my sleep, not relying on medication that did not give me the rejuvenating sleep I needed. As that improved, my pain and energy has also been following along. My pain has decreased, sleeping is much better, and my energy level is gradually improving. Thank you Dr. Yang! I feel like I still have a way to go, and I still have my ups and downs, But I have come to trust that she is with me all the way until I get back to the healthy and active person I love to be.

Testimonial for Dr. Ming Yang

I and my wife Anna Marie have been patients of Dr. Yang for nearly two years. We have both seen consistent improvement in our on-going medical conditions.  I have had back and leg pain, primarily on my right side due to several accidents. Once I was hit by a car while riding home from work and another time when I fell from a step ladder and landed on a kitchen counter top.  I have had a back problem since 1988 and have tried chiropractors, family physicians, three prominent specialists from Philadelphia and NJ medical centers. I’ve used pain centers, back injections, pain medications, and water therapy. None have given permanent relief. My family physical tried to find the solution for me and suggested I see a back surgeon and I did. One of the doctors in their practice listed several remedies and one was have a stimulating device implanted permanently in my lower back… I said no to that. I spoke to the back surgeon in their group and he said the procedure he used was 95% successful. I had initial great results but the pain came back in 3 months. A doctor in that practice suggested see Dr. Yang because other patients had good results.  I was skeptical as about any positive results because I had seen a acupuncturist once before and didn’t get much relief. Since starting treatment with Dr.Yang I have seen much improvement in my pain levels. Dr. Yang is very dedicated to her medical art and consistently administered her treatments. She shows through her efforts her concern for the individual patient. I still have occasional flare ups with my pain but I appreciate the quiet time I have in her office while receiving treatment. I do see other doctors to have check ups but have always been a person who takes the minimum in prescribed medications; Dr.Yang has allowed me to continue to do this. I would recommend her to all in search for an alternative to standard care.

Thank you.

Lower Back Pain & Anxiety

From: “dlkrauser34@aol.com” dlkrauser34@aol.com
To: myacupuncture2008@yahoo.comDr. Yang,

Just wanted to send you a little information regarding my treatments with you. I have had terrible low back pain for three years. I believe it all started after about 7 months of my pregnancy. I tried several different things to try and relieve the pain: trigger point injections, physical therapy, and of course, pain relievers. Nothing worked. Nothing. Then I went to see you and figured even though I absolutely despise needles, I would give acupuncture a try. Well, it worked. After about three weeks, I started to feel almost no pain. And then in another week or two, the pain was completely gone. But that is when I made the mistake of stopping. I thought because I felt so good, that I was immediately cured for good. I went six weeks with no pain, and no treatments. And I acted as if I never had pain. I went about my daily activities and started lifting heavy things and then realized the pain came back. I should have listened to you because you told me that I should not have stopped acupuncture completely just yet. Instead of going twice a week, you told me that I should at least just go once a week and work my way through to maintain the relief. But I didn’t listen. So, I came back to you and your treatments have already started giving me relief again. I noticed that going twice a week works well for me. I also realized that I need to avoid lifting heavy things while I am in treatment. With treatments and rest, I am on my way to feeling 100% better.

I can’t thank you enough, Dr. Yang. You have given me my life back. I can now play with my daughter and do all of the things that I enjoy doing. And on a side note, acupuncture has definitely reduced my stress and anxiety levels. My husband will attest to that 🙂

Shirley Levey
To: Margret Yang <myacupuncture2008@yahoo.com>

As you know, our meeting two years ago…was brief due to a pain in my leg that family doctors recommended surgery……

After having that surgery…….the pain persisted……..PLUS got much worse….traveling to my groin, lower back and up to the middle of my back. Again, my primary sent me to PAIN MANAGEMENT…….if you remember…I was upset with taking so many MOTRIN……PAIN MANAGEMENT said it was part of the aging process and we just have to CONTROL the pain…….and NARCOTIC was prescribed…….it helped! Deadened the pain…but could not sleep…….my Podiatrist thought it was coming from my hip and asked for films to check it out……. was not bad.
PAIN still persisted. I hated nights! for the next two years I lived a terrible existence. I work every day……sometimes dragging myself to work after being up all night……now not only was I on a Narcotic at night to relieve the pain…..but during the day I was taking MOTRIN….and then a sleep aid to go to sleep at nights………Now I had three doctors…..the narcotic started to play havoc on my elimination system….so here was other problems starting that I never had! I never felt so alone misunderstood…….just could not take any more pills…

I reached out to you once again……..the very first session……I had no pain in my upper back…..my legs still bothered me that night…….The 2nd treatment……. I am so overjoyed to say….I was pain free………the first time in two years! I slept without any pills! which was a miracle! I am so overjoyed…with having found you again……..I should have never left the first time……..

If anyone would like to talk to me about my experience with your service……..PLEASE …feel free to refer them to me…I tell everyone I know………I hope we are together for a very long time……….and I know I will continue to follow your lead……thank you Dr. Yang…….thank you …thank you.

Lower Back Pain Tendonitis Of the Rotator Cuff With Severe Anxiety, Depression, PMS

dinny447@comcast.net 

January 16, 2009 2:27:03 PM

To:myacupuncture2004@yahoo.com

After becoming extremely disenchanted with the whole western health care system and the snails pace with which it moves, I decided to seek help elsewhere for the discomfort I was experiencing from tendonitis of the rotator cuff. After doing some research, I came upon Dr. Yang’s website and was very impressed with her credentials.

At my first appointment with Dr. Yang, I realized that I also needed help with some other issues I was experiencing; PMS (bloating and moodiness), extreme anxiety and quite possibly depression from a few years of life experiences. I only realized this due to Dr. Yang being so thorough at my initial consultation. She doesn’t treat one body part or one ailment. She treats your body as a whole. She counseled me on better nutrition and trying to find the balance in all aspects of my life.

After just one treatment my anxiety and depression had just about vanished. After a few more treatments the discomfort of my tendonitis and PMS had vanished as well.

Dr. Yang is a woman that I respect as a professional and as a person.

Dr. Ming Yang and her acupuncture treatments have helped me immensely.  For the past 9 months, I have had chronic pain in my right buttock and sciatic pain down my right leg due to a herniated disc my problem initially started 4 years ago.  At that time, I opted for water physical therapy.  It took 6 months for the pain to subside.  I now decided to seek Dr. Yang’s help upon hearing of my friend’s son’s success from treatments with Dr. Yang.  He had amazing results in 5 weeks.  I have completed 9 treatments within the past 4 weeks and am PAIN FREE.  Acupuncture definitely works.  Dr. Yang’s acupuncture treatments are for whole body, including weight loss.  My sugar cravings have lessened.  I am losing weight and fitting into smaller pants.  Thank you very much Dr. Yang.

I have been seeing Dr. Yang for total body acupuncture for my second year. I am 70 years of age, and consider myself very active. In 2010 I was diagnosed with a bulging disc and sciatica and in a lot of pain.

I have experienced many different types of acupuncture before finding Dr. Yang .My first try was a Western practice. All needles were placed on my back along my spine. After 17 treatments, little relief was noticed. Physical therapy was working better.

During the winter months I am in Florida. Here I found an Eastern Acupuncturist. Their method was to treat the opposite side of your pain. Here I also experienced cupping .

My praise goes to Dr. Yang! Her detailed coverage of my medical history and explanation of procedure gave me a feeling that I found the right person. Total body treatment covers the way you feel mentally and physically.

At this time I am seeing Dr. Yang for what I call “my monthly tune up”. My life is back to normal doing exercise, walking, biking and gardening without the constant pain and stress. Some days I forget that there is a problem. Being aware of your body and how the systems work together makes total body treatment make sense. Thank you Dr. Yang.

Scoliosis & Rheumatoid Arthritis

I am a 70 year old female. I had Juvenile Rhematoid Arthritis and was hospitalized, in traction, for three years at age 10,11,12 and 13. My advanced arthritis severe flared up about 1999. I started six years of i.V. Remicade, Humara , Embrel, and Orencia treatment. In 2004, 5, and 6, I had two hip replacements, and a left knee replacement. I had numerous facets, medial branchneurotomy and steroid injections with many rheumatoligest and pain management specialists. I have taken many pain medicine and arthritis medications for years, including oxycodone, oxycotin, prednisone, and methotrexate. I’v used the duragestic (fentanyl) patch for pain the last couple of years. My daughter successfully took her Scotch Terrier dog for acupuncture in early 2007 and suggested I try acupuncture for my pain in my lower back and hands. My lower back is severely curved. I also desired to lessen or discontinue the many medications I’v been taking for years. After receiving consultation, advice, and superior acupuncture treatment from Dr. Ming Yang my arthritis pain was greatly relieved and I was able to cut back or discontinue a number of my medications. I regret that I hadn’t tried acupuncture many years ago and believe Dr. Ming Yang would have been able to give me more successful permanent and lasting results.

I am a 62 year old female who works full time and who is very active and exercise on a regular basis.  In April I took an exercise class, and pulled a ligament in my groin, I went for an MRI and physical therapy and was still in pain. I went to two different doctors for opinions, and was told I probably had a tear.  I was in pain, and could not really walk well.  My quality of life decreased, and I became frustrated, depressed and stressed out.  The last doctor I saw suggested acupuncture.  I searched and was very fortunate to have found Dr. Yang. I drive close to an hour and a half each way to see Dr. Yang, and worth every mile I drive. She helped me with my pain, stress and depression.  I continue to see her.  She is a joy, very caring and I appreciate her help in getting my quality of life back.

Severe Tendinitis Of Multiple Joints Due to Allergy Of Quinolone

From: Yo Han <fishslayeryo@gmail.com>

To: Ming Yang <myacupuncture2004@yahoo.com>

I am a 33 year old healthy active male, who had an allergic reaction toquinolone antibiotics. Specifically Avelox, which disabled me by causing tendonitis all throughout my body. Especially in my knees, hips, shoulder and ankles. I was unable to walk for over 5 months after my last pill. At month 5 I saw Dr. Yang and she was wonderful. From the very first visit she spent time to listen and understand my body and situation unlike many doctors I have seen since my reaction to quinolones. From the very first acupuncture treatment I noticed improvements in my overall tendinitis. She also encouraged me to exercise/walk as much as I could to aid my body’s healing. With 2 months of treatments I am much better now than I was prior to seeing Dr. Yang. Her acupuncture without a doughty speed up my healing process from this horrible reaction and I am on my road to recovery. I have seen several acupuncturists in the area and in Philadelphia, and no one took the time or helped me as much as Dr. Yang did nor had her skill set. She has a special talent and truly cares for her patients.

Thank you again Dr. Yang!

I have been low back pain free, ever since treating with Dr. Ming Yang. I am an avid workout nut, exercising usually 7 days a week. Over the years, I never let my low back pain stop me from working out, but there were times it was quite painful. I have been to numerous chiropractors to treat this pain, but never got the relief I did with acupuncture. I had never really known enough about acupuncture to investigate it for myself. That was until I met with Dr. Yang. She took the time to explain all the benefits of acupuncture, and so I started my treatments. Within a short period of time, my pain lessen, and today I do not suffer with this pain. Since I had problems with my low back for years, and chiropractic treatments did not alleviate it, I thought I would have to live with this pain. Not anymore. I really believe in acupuncture now, and I attribute all that to Dr. Yang. She has great credentials, plus she really cares about alleviating your suffering. She is so happy when any of her patients show improvement. I continue to recommend her to all my family and friends.

Foot Pain & Withdrawing Conventional Pain Meds

From: Melisa.Drennan@Jefferson.edu
To: Ming Yang <myacupuncture2008@yahoo.com>
Sent: Wednesday, March 7, 2012 6:53AM

Dr. Yang has helped me far beyond what I had ever thought was possible. I had injured my foot seven years ago when I was 21 years old. I was at the time a very active person and worked on my feet. Over time the pain and swelling in my foot intensified. I eventually was to the point where I could no longer run and was limited in other activities. I could still walk, however, the pain and swelling seemed to be intensified the more that I was on my feet. Over the next few years I saw many different specialists. None could even give me a diagnosis as to what had happened in my foot after the initial injury.
I had always had the mindset “no pain, no gain”. I would continuously work out, run and go to work because I thought it was more important to remain active. I simply thought that there was nothing that could be done to promote healing and/or decrease the pain, so I just took the pain medication as needed that had been prescribed to me.
For years I had taken large doses of NSAIDS to help decrease swelling and pain in my foot. After a few years of this, I began to have stomach upset and GI problems. It came to the point where I could not tolerate normal foods such as coffee, acidic fruit, and frequently had stomach upset when taking pain medication. Little did I know that the NSAIDS that I was taking for swelling and pain for my old sports injury could alter and deteriorate the lining of my stomach and intestines.
I drew the line and realized that I needed to try alternative methods of treatment after I was referred to a neurologist for pain management. The medication that I received at this point was to treat nerve pain. I tried my best to regularly take the medication and increase my tolerance. The side effects were horrible. I’d fall asleep in the middle of the day and felt always in an altered mindset. I could not fathom taking such medication for the rest of my life. Then, there was a suggestion to perform a nerve block so that I would feel no pain at all in my foot. I had lost faith in regaining full function of my foot and was not interested in trying new techniques with adverse effects. In addition, I drew the line at trying further treatments that focused solely on pain management at this point because it became evident that the medications were doing little to treat the actual cause of the pain and were actually decreasing my overall health.
By the time four months ago when I had first seen Dr. Yang, I had tried numerous pain medications, damaged my stomach and still had no relief from my initial injury. After a few treatments with Dr. Yang, my pain was remarkably decreased and continued to further decrease with each additional treatment. Within 3 weeks, I had stopped taking all the medications for pain and swelling. I no longer needed to take Advil, Motrin or other NSAIDS to decrease the swelling that would accompany long periods of standing on my feet at work or to work out. My overall health was remarkably improved. I slowly increased my activity level and became better able to manage other stressors in my life. Slowly, I felt I was regaining function and could get back to being normal. I cannot imagine where I would be without Dr. Yang’s treatments. I currently take no medications for pain or swelling. I am now able to use my foot and be much more active than I have been in the past since the initial injury. The swelling is much decreased and the majority of the time I have no pain at all because I continue treatment for pain management.
My only regret since beginning treatment with Dr. Yang is that I waited so long before making an appointment. I highly recommend people experiencing pain try her methods as an alternative to traditional Western prescriptive pain management because of the effectiveness and lack of detrimental side effects. It is well known that all medications have side effects, however, this is a method that has no adverse side effects. It’s not a quick fix pill. Dr. Yang’s treatments are made to treat the entire body-not just an isolated part. I feel that my entire body is healthier since beginning acupuncture treatment with her, and I am very eternally grateful for her services that she provides.

Thank you,

Skin Disorder-Psoriasis & Sciatica Pain

Subject: psoriasis and acupuncture

I just want you to know the miracle of acupuncture for any number of body difficulties. Originally, in such acute pain that I could not walk, I contacted Dr. Ming Yang. I had completed the physical therapy afforded by insurance and the insurance company no longer would cover the epidural shot which had helped me two years earlier. Dr. Yang took me the very day of my call with complete compassion for the sciatica pain I was experiencing. For weeks I could not walk without a cane. After twelve treatments of acupuncture, I was gradually able to walk without the cane and finally experienced no pain. I am back to regular activities.

When I met with her she also immediately recognized my skin disorder:
psoriasis. After a life altering event twenty years ago, I developed psoriasis so severe that it covered my entire body: I was constantly plagued with a prickly itching;, embarrassing shedding of skin cells and bloody patches which stained my clothing, furniture and sheets. After shaving my legs, I would be covered with band aids. I had a back scratch upstairs, downstairs, in my car and at my place of work. None of the expensive self-injections (humira, embra, stellara) were covered by my insurance. It was a complete surprise that she could also treat my skin disorder disabling problem.

Nothing is fixed with one treatment. Trust Dr. Yang: it takes more than one treatment to overcome years of problems. Acupuncture has been my savior! The benefits are immeasurable.

Thank you, Dr. Ming Yang!

Skin Disorder- Melasma

From: www.ratemds.com

I am a 39 yr old woman that has suffered from extreme menstral symptoms, melasma & emotional stress for yrs. I was told by 3 gynocologists that my only options for the menstral symptoms were the Merena or a hysterectomy. Since neither were viable options for me, I began thoroughly researching alternatives when I found acupuncture & the practice of TCM. Surprisingly, research showed the positives consistently outweighing the negatives with supporting testimonies that were irrefutable so I began seeing Dr Yang in mid-January. I have had 8 sessions & haven’t felt better in years! My menstral symptoms have improved by 75%, my stress/anxiety and the associated aches and pains have reduced by 50% and although nominal, my melasma is lightening and diminishing in some areas which makes me extremely hopeful! Especially since doctors don’t know the cause or have a cure yet. Although expensive, I have and will continue to recommend Dr Yang for her 23 yrs of experience & inimitable experience.

Skin Disorder- Dermagraphia

From:  www.ratemds.com

I’ve been seeing Dr. Yang for over 3.5 years and feel she’s done WONDERS for my skin condition. Several years again I was diagnosed with a severe case of dermagraphia which for me caused swelling/redness of my skin when in contact with pressure and/or heat. I had been taking medication (with little other option or real relief) before I found Dr. Yang. From the start, she me feel like there was hope again and assured me that I would see results and I have…lots of results!! I still have to maintain visits and watch what I eat, but we discuss those things. I have found that there’s no quick fix and sometimes years of damage take years to mend!! Dr. Yang cares and is there to make a difference! I would and have recommended her services!

Hello, Dr. Ming! Here’s my testimonial.
Have a nice day!

A few years ago, I came down with some skin rash on the neck which soon spread all over my body. I experienced severe itching every single day and pretty much relied on medication, both oral and topical. Itching was so severe that interaction with my family was affected. No doctor knew what caused my skin to suddenly have the symptoms of constant itchiness and inflammation. They prescribed oral, topical steroids and antibiotics. They told me to use unscented soap and lotion. Everything they told me I bought and did to no avail. I decided to seek alternative treatment because I was desperate and thought of how my body was being affected by all the medicine that I was taking. Just after my first acupuncture treatment, my extremely red, itching skin has dramatically improved. Itching was less intense that I gave up taking oral and topical medicine. Aside from that, I am able to sleep better and have more energy. At present, I experience occasional itching but it goes away in a couple of minutes. It’s great to feel “normal” again!
I would just like to say thank you to Dr. Ming Yang. When all else failed, her expertise, caring attitude and faith in the outcome helped me see that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Smoking Cessation

Smoking Cessation

Dr. Yang,

I apologize for taking so long to provide this follow up but I wanted to let you know of my success following your treatment. I am happy to say that after 2 months, I am still smoke free and do not even think about smoking cigarettes anymore. It is truely amazing how wonderful I feel. Of course quitting smoking was my number one goal, but you told me you wanted to treat the triggers that made me smoke, such as anxiety. I can honestly tell you that I am so much more relaxed and calm, even in situations that would normally set me off. I truely believe that treating my anxiety was most important in helping me to quit smoking. I hope you will share this with other patients who also WANT to quit smoking. I had tried so many different ways to quit, but always found myself reaching for a cigarette at the first signs of stress and anxiety. I can tell you, that I am not unlike most people in that respect. I hope to visit you again soon to make sure I remained balanced. I can’t thank you enough! You have saved my life!

With warmest regards

I initially sought the aid of Dr. Yang to help me cut back and eventually quit smoking. With her acupuncture treatment and instruction, I quickly reduced my intake from one and half packs a day to only three cigarettes. Never has my goal seemed more attainable and I have Dr. Yang’s approach and keen eye for detail to thank. The difference between Dr. Yang’s methodology and that of other practitioner is her scope of attention. Dr. Yang’s techniques focus solely on the root of the affliction, rather than the symptoms of it. What gave impetus to my cravings for nicotine was job-related and social anxiety. Dr. Yang’s treatment focused largely on the alleviation of stress as well as quelling my nicotine cravings. More importantly, Dr. Yang instructs her patients how to enhance the positive effects of treatment, insuring that treatment leads to self-suffering and greater well-being, not more treatment. My energy level is significantly higher, my ability to cope with daily stress has improved and my nicotine cravings have significantly diminished. I’ve been a habit user of anti-anxiety/anti-depression medication. I no longer rely on medication to control these problems. I highly recommend Dr. Yang

Tinnitus, Vertigo & Motion Sickness

Tinnitus

From:JosephKeating
To:myacupuncture2008@yahoo.com

I’m a 54 year old male and I have been suffering with Tinnitus (ringing noise in the ear) for several years. In the past year my tinnitus has gotten worse, to the point that I needed to get help before it became unbearable. People describe it as ringing in the ear but mine is actually a high pitched steady tone. The left ear isn’t as bad as the right ear and the right ear developed a feeling of being full as if it were full of water. I understand that the full feeling isn’t unusual.

Visits to my ENT doctor for exams, hearing tests, and an MRI to rule out a tumor resulted in being told that there is no known cause or cure and I’ll have to live with it. The hearing tests did reveal some loss of hearing mostly in the right ear.

While searching the internet for a possible cure I found Dr. Ming Yang who performs acupuncture for all sorts of ailments. After investigating the art of acupuncture I decided to give it a try. My first visit with Dr. Yang for consultation and first treatment was interesting and made good sense. Dr. Yang treats the entire body but my treatment focuses on my ears. I noticed a difference in my left ear after the first visit. By the second or third visit the left ear was about normal with little or no ringing. After a few more visits the fullness feeling in the right ear began to fade which provided much needed relief. I think the reduction of the uncomfortable fullness feeling has caused me not to think about the ringing so much so it has become less noticeable. On a scale of 1 to 10 the fullness feeling was a 10 and now is 1 or 2.

I highly recommend Dr. Yang and acupuncture.

Thank you.

Chronic Motion Sickness, Tinnitus, Migraine

FROM: Lauren Anderson Friday, September 28, 2012 12:04 PM
TO: myacupuncture2008@yahoo.com

After the birth of my second child, I began to suffer from chronic motion sickness, hearing loss, hyperacusis (noise sensitivity), tinnitus and head/neck pain, all of which were severely compounded by my menstrual cycle. Over the course of the last year, I sought the care of doctors at the Jefferson University Center for Balance and Hearing Loss, the Jefferson University Headache Clinic, and a Jefferson University Reproductive Endocrinologist, all of whom prescribed me an endless list of medications and tests, but who were never able to give me a definitive diagnosis or prognosis. All of my medical tests and scans were clean, though I continued to feel extremely ill and to lose my hearing. It was unclear if there was something wrong with my ear, my head (migraines) or my hormones (or all three!) and no physician was able to piece together the interrelation of my symptoms, let alone treat the cause.

A year later, I was about to give-up hope when I happened upon Dr. Ming Yang and her acupuncture practice. I was extremely tentative about acupuncture, both because I knew very little about Eastern medicine and because my insurance didn’t cover any costs. In my initial consultation with Dr. Ming Yang, she was certain she could help me and convinced me to try her methods. (Before my first treatment, I was white knuckling the table, thinking I was wasting my money and doubting that after all the highly qualified doctors I had seen, that Dr. Ming would not be able to help me.)

Unbelievably, after ONE treatment, the motion sickness was greatly reduced. After seven treatments in three short weeks, my symptoms improved by 75 – 85%. Following Dr. Ming’s advice to eat certain foods, take certain vitamins and avoid supplements and medications that I had previously tried, I went from being unable to sit in my daughter’s music class because I felt so motion sick, to singing and dancing with her. My head and neck pain are completely gone and my tinnitus is dampened a great deal. It is my hope and belief that her therapies will also help to prevent further sudden hearing loss.

Dr. Ming has given me my life back and she has given my family their mother back. In addition to resolving the majority of my worst symptoms, I feel extremely energetic and happy and I take no medications. Her therapy and her advice are gold and I highly recommend her practice.

TMJ

TMJ & Heavy Menstruation

From: amtrich@comcast.net                                        2:02pm 12/29/2014

To: myacupuncture2014@gmail.com

In Spring of 2013 I began to feel a sharp pain on the side of my head right in front of my left ear. I assumed it was an ear infection but decided to pay a visit to my family

doctor. Her initial diagnosis was either TMJ or Trigeminal Neuralgia. She ordered X-Rays and prescribed Lyrica. The X-rays did not show any findings and the Lyrica gave me horrible side effects so I decided to not take it anymore.

I then went to an ENT doctor and he did not find any damage or blockage in my ear and suggested I visit my dentist for TMJ. My dentist suggested expensive braces or have an uncomfortable mouth guard fitted for me. I did not like either options and continued to suffer extensive pain that would last 4-6 hours. I was taking 800 mg of Ibuprofen and had to travel with a heating pad wherever I went. It affected my work and home life. I could not concentrate at work and as a result, my performance was not to my capability. My family at home would see me in tears or lying in bed with a heating pad for hours. I would miss sitting for dinner with them and family time before bedtime.

In October of 2013 my pain level increased to a point where I could not stand on my feet and forced me to sit or lay down. I was popping 800 mg of Ibuprofen 3 times a day to help with the pain. I went to the ER one weekend when I could not deal with the pain any longer. A cat scan did not reveal a diagnosis and the ER doctor suggested I continue the Lyrica and be treated as if I had Trigeminal Neuralgia. I suffered the side effects and the medicine did not help.

I then went to a Neurologist and had an MRI done, which did not reveal a diagnosis. The Neurologist did not have any suggestions other than retaking the MRI in 6 months.

I was suffering with this pain for over a year at the time and felt like my life would be living with a constant pain and this caused me to be depressed. I could not afford the braces and considered the mouth guard to be fitted. At the same time, I visited a Pain Management doctor and was given steroid shots directly in my jaw.

These shots were painful and helped for about 4 months but the pain would return. I received a second session of shots but the pain continued and I was in despair after thinking I had found a solution to my pain. At this point, the pain was almost every day and lasted 6-8 hours. Ibuprofen and a heating pad managed the pain to a small degree but it was always there.

One day after I experienced a terrible day of pain at work, my husband suggested I see an Acupuncturist. He researched the Internet and found Dr. Yang. I spoke with Dr. Yang and explained what I was going through and she made me an appointment the very next day. I was not hopeful of good results since I had tried so many doctors and treatments along with not understanding the concept of Acupuncture.

Dr. Yang took the time to listen to my experiences with the pain, my sleeping and eating habits and how I live my life overall. She immediately suggested sleeping earlier and drinking lots more water along with adding different types of food into my diet. I have had a sleeping problem for as long as I can remember. I either could not fall asleep for hours or fell asleep immediately and woke up hours before I had to. I also had very irregular and heavy menstrual cycles due to being pre menopausal. I was takingLysteda on a monthly basis to help with these issues.

Dr. Yang’s process of treating the entire body as opposed to a specific area has changed my life. After just 7 sessions of holistically acupuncture treatment, my pain decreased immensely from over scale 10/10 to 0-1/10. The pain continued to decrease on a weekly basis and would last a much shorter time. My first menstrual cycle after my sessions was a normal cycle with minimal issues and I am no longer taking medication to help with my cycles.

I have been visiting Dr. Yang since October 10th of 2014 and now go every two weeks for maintenance sessions and have not had any pain since the end of October. I sleep 8 hours every night and drink 60 ounces of water a day. My skin tone is healthier, my menstrual cycles are normal, my anxiety level is low and most of all I am pain free. My family is not only happy that I am back to what I used to be but I am also improved and healthier due to better sleeping and eating habits. 

I cannot thank Dr. Yang enough for encouraging me to keep up my habits and to be confident that her treatments do work!
