Asthma & Allergy

Asthma, Withdrawing Unnecessary Medicines & Depression

From: Lisa. B. at 12:41 PM, May 5th. of 2015

I went to Dr. Yang for Acupuncture treatment for Asthma for several months in 2015.  I am a 31 year old female with a history of seasonal allergies who developed asthma in adulthood.  I have been prescribed inhaled corticosteroids for this condition, but noticed several uncomfortable side effects of the inhalers including sore throat, acid reflux and increased incidence of upper respiratory tract infections. I first sought a consultation with Dr. Yang while I was suffering from a bout of bronchitis which lasted three weeks.

Dr. Yang made time to see me immediately, and was very kind during our initial consultation. We discussed my western medical history, including current medications. We also discussed diet and lifestyle factors such as current level of stress.  Dr. Yang had helpful suggestions regarding my diet and sleeping habits, and recommendations for foods and teas that can help me detox and which can improve lung function.

The acupuncture treatment itself helped to open up my airways.  It is important to note that the treatment works better when following Dr. Yang’s suggestion for a high frequency of visits in the initial weeks of treatment.  Since developing asthma in the last few years, my lung function tests have generally showed 70% lung capacity for a woman of my age and weight, but after a week and a half of treatment with Dr. Yang my lung capacity was 130%!

I noticed several “side effects” of acupuncture treatment which included vastly improved digestive function, no acid reflux, and an improved ability to focus.  In the first few weeks of treatment, Dr. Yang lifted me out of a depression that I hadn’t realized I was in.

I am very grateful to Dr. Yang for helping me with my asthma in such a way that I am no longer dependent on corticosteroids for lung function.  Her diet and detox tips will help me through the course of my entire life.  Dr. Yang is highly skilled in the practice of acupuncture, and her treatment focuses on harnessing the body’s natural ability to heal itself.  I would like to recommend that insurance companies cover acupuncture treatment for asthma because of its ability to improve lung function without the negative side effects of long-term corticosteroid use, and it’s ability to improve overall well-being.

If anyone would like to speak with me further, I am happy to discuss my experience with acupuncture treatment for asthma with Dr. Yang. My email address can be obtained from Dr. Yang.

Sincerely,

Lisa. B.

Allergy with Severe Chronic Nose Congestion Lost Smell, Neck & Shoulder Pain

From: John W. at 12:10pm, June 6th of 2015

I am experiencing amazing results ever since I was introduced to Dr Yang. I had severe sinus congestion for 30 plus years-severe seasonal allergies-I would get sinus infections 2-3 times a year. I haven’t been sick all year. I am not affected by seasonal allergies. I train 1-2 x a day in my fitness facility. I had some stiffness in my right shoulder-after ONE visit it was gone. My body feels and looks amazing. No water retention, no aches or pains, my recovery time from workout to workout is so much shorter compared my non acupuncture days. I highly recommend Dr Yang to all of my clients and co-workers.

Anxiety-Panic & Depression

Anxiety With Severe Panic

From:Jessica D. 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.

Severe Panic With Body muscle Twitching /Jerking

From: Vincent R. 02/15/2015

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

From: Brittany V. Tuesday, December 4, 2007 3:49:07 PM

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

From: Alida B. Friday, July 29, 2011 8:12 PM

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.

Anxiety & Depression With Poor Memory

From: ROSWELL F. Tuesday, September 4, 2007 4:26:12 AM

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.

Severe & Unbearable Anxiety

From: Jeffrey S. Friday, October 24, 2008 11:04:15 AM

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!!

Anxiety,  Dizziness & Headache

From: William B. Tuesday, May 27, 2008 9:41:47 AM

Subject: Testimonial

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.

Anxiety with Severe Restless Leg Syndrome

Anxiety with Severe Chronic Restless Leg Syndrome & Insomnia

From : Mary P. at 1:13pm 06/30/2015

Dear Dr. Yang,

I had my first treatment with you on June 8, 2015 for Restless Leg Syndrome (RLSS) which led into insomnia.  I had this condition for approximately eight years off and on and when I came to you I was at my wits end.  I hadn’t sleep for about 3 months.  I went to bed about 10:30 pm or so and the legs started.  I would get up, stretch, walk around, go up steps, got back into bed and the RLS started again. Tried again and again and the twitching didn’t stop until about 4:00 am. then 5:00 am and the one time it was 6:00 am. I slept late but was like a zombie.  I had told my family doctor and she recommended tonic with quinine and after taking almost a whole bottle it did help.  After a while I took less of the quinine and I thought “Great” I’m cured!!!!  After a few months it came back with a vengeance.  The Quinine no longer worked.  I tried Melatonin for sleep, Valarian, Glycine, some worked for a very short time but nothing helped me sleep and nothing stopped my RLS. I reached and researched and just got more mixed up than ever!  I immediately made an appointment with a sleep center and had to wait for a few weeks.  In the meantime, a light bulb went off and I thought “why not try acupuncture.”  I did my research on finding an acupuncturist and found Dr. Ming Yang.  I was so very impressed by her degrees and testimonials that I made an appointment right on the spot.  Keep in mind I had never read that acupuncture worked for RLS…  After my first treatment, I had no RLS that night and I thought this could not be true.  Same thing for the second night.  It did come back very slightly but after walking for about 2 minutes I got back into bed and no RLS.  It literally took my breath away.  I couldn’t believe it!  After the 4th treatment I have no more RLS but just a few twitches here and there but after a minute walk or so it just stopped.  To me, it is a TRUE MIRACLE!!!  I’m still shocked and on cloud nine.

Now I still have insomnia as I had taken so many types of sleeping pills that my body is way off balance.  Dr. Yang is helping me on that and I will write a review after a while as she said that it would probably take a while.  The only thing I take is 2 Klonopin about two hours before sleep and it works but I’m a bit groggy in the morning.  Dr. Yang is trying to wean me off the Klonopin so that I can sleep naturally. She believes in having a “clean” body and I agree.  My hopes are up with Dr. Yang’s help.

I can’t say enough about Dr. Yang, she is gentle and really, truly wants to help you. She sits with you before every treatment asking about all the details of what is going on and is genuinely happy when she sees you Improving!

I’m so happy that I discovered acupuncture and wish it was more accepted because people have no idea how much it helps heal the whole body, relaxation, blood flow, everything and she sure picks up on everything your body needs.

I have heard other stories also about how acupuncture helped them so although it is mysterious, IT WORKS!!!!

Thank you Dr. Yang,

Autoimmune System Disease (ALS) Mylinated Scoloresis (MS)

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Affecting Swallow, Speaking, Neck Weakness, Chronic Fatigue, Anxiety, Depression & Lyme’s Disease

From: Thomas V. Aug 25 of 2016

Over the past two years I have been experiencing degrading neurological symptoms that were concentrated around my neck and shoulders. The symptoms progressed to significant weakness in my neck, atrophy in my neck and shoulder muscles and difficulty swallowing, among others. After numerous examinations and testing, I was diagnosed with ALS in July 2016. At the time of my diagnosis my symptoms progressed to the point where I had limited mobility of my head and needed to hold my head up with my hand at times to relieve the strain on my neck muscles. Any type of activity that required holding my arms above my head became very difficult.

Leading up to my ALS diagnosis I had read about how acupuncture can be effective in slowing the progression of ALS symptoms. I met with Dr. Yang for an initial consultation and treatment. She was very thorough in her evaluation of my case and her explanation of how integrative acupuncture works. She explained the importance getting plenty of rest to enhance the body’s natural ability to heal itself, reducing anxiety and depression, and detoxin the body – eliminating all chemicals from my lifestyle – from cleaning and hygiene products to my diet regimen (absolutely no processed foods). Dr. Yang’s integrative acupuncture treats all these aspects of dealing with an illness like ALS. This means she applies the acupuncture treatment to the whole body to help detoxin, relieve anxiety and depression in addition to any particular local area where specific, physical symptoms may be present.

Shortly after my diagnosis I had left work because the physical strain on my neck had become too great. I was feeling depressed and I needed to come to terms with the reality of this challenge. I began seeing Dr. Yang regularly for acupuncture treatment twice each week. After every treatment I noticed improved strength in my neck and shoulders and as the treatments progressed, the improvement was lasting longer. I also noticed an increase in my energy level and less anxiety.

It is now mid-September 2016 and I have had 12 acupuncture treatments so far. I have changed to a completely organic and chemical free lifestyle for about two months now and I make sure I get 9 hours of sleep each night with a short nap during the day. The combination of the treatments and lifestyle change are really working for me. I have regained some strength in my neck and increased the mobility of my head. This has given me a much more positive outlook.

Since my ALS diagnosis I have also learned a lot about the relationship of chronic Lyme disease and neurological disorders, like ALS. I have a history of having had Lyme disease and believe that may be the root cause of my ALS symptoms. I am also seeing a Lyme specialist now, who, through additional testing, confirmed the presence of active Lyme bacteria in my system – something standard medical tests could not determine. So now I am fighting this battle by treating Lyme disease in the hope that it will stop the attack on my nervous system while I continue with the integrative acupuncture treatments and chemical-free lifestyle to maintain as much strength and energy as possible.

If you or anyone you know is struggling with ALS, I highly recommend Dr. Yang’s integrative acupuncture treatment as early as possible to help slow the progression of this horrible disease. It is definitely helping me and I am sure it can also help you.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) with Body Weakness & Chronic Fatigue

From: John R. 11/29/2016 At 10:39AM

I began treatment with Dr. Yang soon after my ALS diagnosis (initially at UPenn, and later confirmed at Johns Hopkins) in May 2013. Meeting Dr. Yang was my first experience with acupuncture, or more broadly, Chinese medicine.

From that first interaction, I have found Dr. Yang to be very thorough in her approach to evaluating not just my symptoms but my overall physical condition. She continues to do this on a consistent basis as we work together to slow the progression of my disease.

I previously spent 30 years working in the medical industry, and have extensive experience working with physicians all over the U.S. I have concluded that Dr. Yang is a very good and caring person, and more important, a great provider of therapeutic service!!

Three and a half years later, I am still able to walk, use my hands and speak. I am thankful to have found Dr. Yang, and to successfully maintain my physical status under her care. I strongly recommend Dr. Yang for her expertise in Chinese medicine and acupuncture!

Mylinated Scoloresis (MS) With Vertigo, Double Vision, Headaches, Right Arm Nerve Tingling & Burning Senation

From: Kristin A. May 1st. 2017 at 6:34pm

I first came to see Dr. Yang in March 2017, after experiencing vertigo, double vision, headaches, right sided tingling and nerve pain. Based on MRI’s I had done I was told that it was MS. After researching risks and side effects of MS drug treatments, I decided to try a more natural and holistic approach before committing to any type of immunosuppressive medication. Dr. Yang has been wonderful in treating me, starting at my first visit where she completely put my mind at ease and developed a plan to treat me to help with my neurological symptoms. She is always kind and listens to all of my concerns when I see her, she is also very knowledgeable in neurological issues that affect the body. I have been a patient of hers for 2 months now and I can report that I feel great, have good energy and my nerve pain has gone, I also have not experienced any new neurological symptoms since I started seeing Dr. Yang.

Bell’s Palsy

Bell’s Palsy with Anxiety

From: Robert A. Jan. 20th of 2016

I have been treated by Dr. Yang for Bells Palsy. I have had 7 acupuncture treatments by Dr. Yang over a 3 week period in addition to 3 treatments by a physical therapist that require daily facial exercises. All of my outward signs of Bells Palsy are gone. What remains is that my taste has still not returned. There is about 40 % improvement with my taste but still waiting for the other 60 % to return. I’m very satisfied with Dr. Yang and would rate her a 10.

Bladder Out Of Control

Interstitial Cystitis

From: Kelly E. Thursday, April 26, 2007 6:50:37 PM
Subject: testimonial from Kelly E.

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.

Generic Bladder Out of Control and Constipation

From: Gertrude K. Thursday, September 13, 2007 5:36:52 PM

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,

Gertrude K.

Cancer Complementary Therapy – Treating Side Effects of Chemo, Radiation & Homonal therapy

Chronic Fatigue, Anxiety Caused By Nose Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) Tumor With Multiple Surgeries – Entire Nose Removal & Nose Reconstructive I, II Surgeries After Chemo & External Radiation Therapies

From: Sara S. At 11:50 am 07/16/2017

I started seeing Dr. Ming Yang in September 2016 for help with my nose. When I came to her, I was being treated for nasal vestibulitis and had been seeing both an ENT and an Infectious Disease DO, both of whom my PCP had referred me to. The ENT and ID had both prescribed various antibiotics almost consistently for the previous 6 months. By the time I got to Dr. Yang, my nose was visibly red, swollen and hard, and extremely tender. Although I also had an upcoming appointment with an Otolaryngologist at Thomas Jefferson Hospital, I was near my wits end. Nothing prescribed had helped and the ENT and ID had no idea. I also did not want to take any more drugs. I was very hopeful that acupuncture may help as well.
On my first visit, Dr. Yang listened very carefully as I explained the previous year –the issue with my nose had first started in September, 2015. She immediately started me on a revised diet to help build my immune system. After six months of antibiotics, most of them very strong, my immune system was very weak. She also started treatments, and I began seeing Dr. Yang 2x per week.
On October 10th, 2016, I had my Otolaryngology appointment. The doctor wanted to perform a biopsy immediately. I was admitted to the hospital the night of the 10th and early on the 11th, a biopsy was performed. Later that morning I received the news that I had a squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) tumor. The post-operative pathology and PET scan a few weeks later confirmed I had a Stage 3, N0 tumor affecting my nose and nasal septum. Because of the staging, the only option was a total rhinectomy, essentially, the removal of my entire nose.
After hearing this diagnosis, Dr. Yang immediately focused on preparing me for surgery (scheduled for November 10, 2016) by strengthening my immune system as well as treating the tumor in hopes it may decrease in size some. Although she only had about six to seven weeks to accomplish what she could, I could feel my body growing stronger during this time. In addition, my partner noted how much better my skin looked. She said the waxen look I had had for a few months was disappearing, replaced by a glow. I know because of Dr. Yang I went into surgery prepared physically and mentally.
Recovery post-surgery was arduous, and I also had to prepare for the next stage of cancer treatment, combined radiation and chemotherapy. Although I was not able to see Dr. Yang as often as I would have liked in December, again, she focused on building my strength back up. Also, and although arduous, my healing process was noticeably fast, something my surgical oncologist and reconstructive surgeon noted at my post-op appointments. This I believe was also in part a direct result of the acupuncture treatments and thus, yet again, I know I entered radiation and chemotherapy in a stronger place than I might have been otherwise.
I was able to see Dr. Yang a few times during treatment and post-treatment as well, which helped to maintain my overall health and well-being. In addition, I did not suffer many side-affects, such as nausea and vomiting or a tremendous increase in fatigue. My appetite remained reasonably intact as well, and as a result, I was also able to maintain a healthy weight. At the end of treatment, my oncologists noted that I had “…cruised through treatment…” which gave them great hope. Dr. Yang specifically focused on helping to reduce side affects during her treatments and I believe this focus was a tremendous help in reducing their potential impact.
One other very important contribution Dr. Yang made was helping me remain confident, optimistic and brave. Facing cancer is a tremendous challenge, and opens the door to emotions and thoughts you never knew existed. Cancer also infiltrates every aspect of your life, every single aspect. It takes its toll on you, and everyone close to you. You are forever changed by it. Dr. Yang took great care in her treatments to ensure my mental and emotional state was treated as well. She also encouraged me to think and remain positive, to be brave, to be strong. In fact, “be brave” became one of my mantra’s throughout and remains so today. Her treatments, combined with positive thinking, visualization, reiki, massage therapy, prayer, and staying active (30 minutes of walking per day, no matter how awful you feel is imperative –and I
know this because my partner is one of the premier authorities on cancer and exercise) helped my mental and emotional state tremendously. Believe me, I had my moments and meltdowns and I allowed myself these times. They are necessary. Cancer is a beast. But I moved through these times and surfaced on the other end strong and confident with more ease than I believe I would have had I not been receiving acupuncture.
SCC is a rare form of head & neck cancer and I did not fit the typical profile of someone who would be diagnosed with this type of cancer, a long-time smoker, or one who’s worked in an industrial setting long-term. The only thought I have is that being an architect, and one who has surveyed many an old building / warehouse over my 25-year career to date, I may have been exposed to something that over time, caused this cancer to develop. I started this process in September 2016 as a healthy, strong 48-year old –aside from the cancer, and remain one today, although now I’m 49. I am also now cancer free and entering the next phase of my treatment –reconstructive surgery, which will create a new nose. I am indebted to Dr. Yang for all she did to aid in my journey over the past many months. Unfortunately, due to location (my partner I moved to Central PA in July 2017), I am no longer able to see Dr. Yang. But, she keeps in contact, checking up on me, making sure I remain healthy and strong. I hope to find another acupuncturist who is as caring about her patients, and as knowledgeable and practiced in acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, as Dr. Yang is. I doubt I’ll find someone as good.

Multiple Surgeries, Chemotherapy, Radiation Therapy For Breast Cancer With Severe Anxiety, Depression, Insomnia, Fatigue, Hot Flashes, Headache, Chest Wound Pain, Lower Back Pain & Foot Pain

From : Kristin L. At 9:33 PM 02/26/2017

The first time I met with Dr. Ming Yang after receiving high doses of radiation for breast cancer along with multiple back to back surgeries, I felt complete comfort, compassion and pure bliss with relief from her desire to help promote overall wellness and overall health for the mind and body which has continued each time I come to her office for acupuncture treatment.

Dr.Ming Yang has a strong passion to understand and problem solve the cause of body pain and ailments , how to manage and detox from the side effects of treatments from breast cancer such as radiation, surgeries, anesthesia and medication etc., the importance of proper nutrition for overall physical and emotional/mental health, how to regulate the body to support a healthy living while overcoming such things as unexplained pains, depression, anxiety, insomnia as a result of life style or from such a life changing diagnosis etc.

Dr. Ming Yang is a wealth of knowledge about the intrinsic and extrinsic workings of the body and how acupuncture benefits women battling breast cancer treatment and the sudden onset of side effects medication such as “Tamoxifin” needed as a preventative for breast cancer survivors. Personally, after just 5 treatments acupuncture has helped reduce fatigue suffered after aggressive radiation treatment and has increased my energy level significantly throughout the entire day.

Dr. Ming Yang’s treatments have relieved my issues with insomnia and reduced my heighted levels of anxiety and worry. My overall disposition is much calmer and I am sleeping more soundly at night with increased hours of consistent sleep without waking and without difficulty falling back to sleep.

Dr. Ming Yang truly believes in providing her patients a feeling of well being and improving a patient’s overall quality of life. Her office staff /assistants are very warm, friendly and sensitive to your needs. Dr. Ming Yang is always on time, has evening office hours and provides an atmosphere where you don’t feel rushed because of her genuine authentic kind and care personality.

Dr. Ming Yang has become another guardian angel to me amongst the many I have met along the way during my breast cancer journey! I feel so blessed to have this opportunity to have her treat me !

My 69 year old mother was diagnosed with breast cancer a little over a year ago. She was put on a medication that caused a few side effects . She began suffering from severe leg aches. She suffered terribly, and no pain medications were working to alleviate her discomfort. Her oncologist suggested acupuncture and honestly, we thought it was a long shot. Much to our surprise, it worked like a miracle. Within 2 weeks, her pain was gone. She was able to get back to her life and enjoy it, free from pain, thanks to Dr. Ming Yang. My entire family highly recommends her and we are so grateful to her for helping my mother feel like herself again.

Chemotherapy & External Radiation Therapy For Breast Cancer

From: Patricia B. 02/14/2014, 4:32:47pm

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.

Chest Tightness – Chest Tightness With Severe Short Breathe-Pulmonary Hypertention

Severe Chest Tightness With Severe Short Breathe, Raynaud’s Disease, Osteoarthritis, Osteoporosis & Gout

From: Arlene D. August 2nd.of 2016 at 10:20AM

My name is Arlene. I have been treated by Dr. Yang for 10/ treatments. When I came in for my first visit, I had severe shortness of breath and chest tightness secondary to PULMONARY HYPERTENSION. I have many health issues after receiving a diagnosis of Reynaud’s Disease. I have had many orthopedic surgeries. The latest surgery being on my right foot. Following 2 surgeries on same foot, the Pulmonary Hypertension was exacerbated. I no longer was able to breathe without severe shortness of breath. I couldn’t manage steps without feeling weak and breathless. Almost passing out. I was so limited in any activity, I was getting depressed. My husband had to help with activities of daily living. I refused to leave home for fear I couldn’t breathe. This was affecting my entire life.
Dr. Yang examined me and told me I was toxic from so much medication. She, also, said I was malnourished. I had no appetite because of meds and total fatigue. After 10 treatments, I am a new woman. Full of hope. Full of energy Full of gratitude. Dr. Yang has given me my life back.
My regular acupuncturist would not treat me. He said he never treated LUNG DISEASE. I am a retired RN with 43 years experience. I have received acupuncture for years.
Dr. Yang is my miracle. She is a TCM doctor, as well. She has helped me nourish my body with advice on proper diet- and I do listen! I am recommending MY special doctor to treat your pain, anxiety, post surgical problems, and LUNG DISEASE. Plus many, many more problems.
Thank you for this privilege of talking about Dr. Yang.

Chronic & Severe Coughing

Severe Coughing, Sinus & Respiratory Infection, Chest tightness, Extremely Exhaustion

From: Roy V. July 10th. of 2016

I am writing to express my thanks to Dr. Yang for her continuing efforts to address my health concerns. I and my wife have been patients of Dr.Yang and have received caring attention to our health concerns. I developed sinus and respiratory infections this past winter which led to severe coughing. Medical doctors addressed the infections but Dr.Yang was able to treat the severe coughing.

For several months I would lose half the night’s sleep for three hours at least two or three nights a week. The incidents would include running nose, sneezing, and necessitate continued blowing of my nose. It left me exhausted, my chest and lungs raw, and extremely tried.

Dr.Yang treated me for the condition and now after 4 months of treatment I now am not coughing, can sleep through the night without any problems. I still am receiving treatment for the condition but I’m sure the problem has been largely addressed with her help. I am thankful for her help and would recommend her treatments to anyone with similar problems.

Respectfully,

Diabetes Type II with Hypertention Tinnitus Sciatica Leg & Feet Neuropathy, Tinnitus

From: Ed L. At 12:38pm 04/06/2017

I have suffered with a lot of Pain for a number of years. Terrible headaches from a Head Injury, Diabetes II and diabetic nerve pain in both feet, neuropathy pain and numbness on arms, legs and hands, Artritis, lower back pain and sciatica nerve pain down both legs. Hypertension and a Anurysm on my Aorta. For the past 2 months I have seeing Ming Yang for acupuncture my pain has reduced. Also my A1C number has dropped 7.9 to 6.7, Since I have so many diseases I am constantly depressed and angry, but the acupuncture has also helped me to be much calmer. For many years I have taken so much medication but acupuncture is a medicine without side affects to my kidneys and liver, so now I am taking less medications, which my Doctors approved. I only wish I could have known Ming Yang years ago.

Diabetes Type I and Wrist Pain

From: Christin F. Mar 2 at 11:56 AM

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.

Dizziness

Severe Dizziness with Light Sensitive, Acid Reflux & Anxiety

From: Susan G. Apr 7 2016

Dr. Yang has helped me tremendously! I’ve been to several doctors and alternative medicine practitioners on my path back to good health.  Some of them helped me to some degree, but never enough to give me hope of feeling “normal” again.  I suffered from dizziness and light sensitivity for two years before treating with Dr. Yang.  Finally, I have found relief! She also got me off of the acid reflux medicine I’d been on for several years!  That in itself is amazing!  Dr. Yang takes a lot of time to go over your medical history and cover all the issues.  She is a very caring person and truly wants to help you get well.  I’ve been treating with Dr. Yang for seven months.  In the beginning I needed to see her twice a week.  Now I’m treating with her once a week or every nine or ten days.  My issues were chronic for a long time, and it hasn’t been a quick process to get better, but it has been a steady progression of improvement.  I am feeling 90% better, which is wonderful!  I am very grateful that I found Dr. Yang!

Fibromyalgia

Fibryomalgia, Herniated Neck Back, Multiple Discs With Stenosis, Anxiety, Depression, Restless Legs, Constipation & Over Body Weight

From: Geraldine B. 05/26/2017 at 9:31`pm

I have just had my 5th acupuncture treatment by Dr. Ming Yang. I was going to wait until I was completely finished with treatments to write a testimonial but I am so overwhelmed with the results so far that I had to submit comments now.

I am a very active 77 year old woman who just in the past year began developing overall body pain, especially in my neck, arms, knees and lower back; restless leg syndrome; insomnia because of these pains; trouble going up and down stairs and trouble getting up from a sitting position. I also had no energy and was in a state of depression.

I was diagnosed as having either fibromyalgia or polymyalgia until a cervical spine MRI showed two ruptured discs, two bulging discs and bone spurs in my neck that are pressing on my spinal cord.

My rheumatologist referred me to a spine surgeon for treatment and/or surgery.

I decided to try acupuncture for pain management which brings us to today.

After only 5 treatments by Dr. Yang, I no longer have restless leg syndrome, insomnia or depression and have more energy than I have had in a long time. I am sleeping like a baby and feel like my former self again!

I was so happy today that I asked Dr. Yang if I could hug her and had tears in my eyes when this very gentle, sweet and extremely competent doctor opened her arms wide to hug me! It was so obvious how happy she was to have helped me as much as she has in such a short period of time.

She is now concentrating on continuation of the treatment for the pain in my neck, arms, knees and lower back. I have nothing but the utmost confidence that this “miracle worker” will provide me with a much better quality of life when my treatments come to an end.

Fibryomalgia, Herniated Neck Discs, Hypertension, Insomnia, Anxiety & Withdrawing Conventional Pain Meds

From: Sharon S. 02/06/2017

I have been going to Dr. Ming since the middle of December 2016. I suffered from fibromyalgia, herniated neck discs ,fatigue, hypertension,and insomia . I was on many medications for pain for about 8 years and my pain was getting worse and worse. I took narcotics: oxycordone, tramadol, hydocordone, gabenpentin and topicaal gels to try to relief my pain but they stopped working. I was so fatigued I had to lie down most of the day. I was as anxious and at my wits end with all my symptoms. After the first few treatments I felt much more relaxed and my pain level greatly decreased from 8-9 to 2-3. My pain mow is about a 1 most of the time , I am much more relaxed and I sleep soundly every night. I also have more energy. My blood work for the most part is normal and my blood presure has decreased with less medicine. I highly recommend Dr. Ming treatment for any one with chronic conditions such as I had.

From: Darliene P. 11/11/2014

Hi Dr. Yang

I just want to say what a pleasure it was to meet with you yesterday. You were very thorough and informative, and I am hopeful that you can help me with my health problems. I am amazed to say that I am feeling significant relief from the pain in my lower back, and actually feel a bit better overall. This gives me hope that I will be able to stop taking all the medications that I have been taking for years and begin to heal my body in a more natural way.

I look forward to my next appointment on Thursday at 3:45. Thank you so much for taking on my challenging situation.

From: darliene321@comcast.net & www.ratemds.com 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: Dianne C. 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

From: Jean M. 05/2012

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 Chronic Headache With Excessive Sweat For Entire Adult Life & Anxiety With Important Maintenance Treatment<

From: Arthur M. 06/06/20167

I’ve suffered with almost daily headaches my entire adult life and have seen multiple doctors through the years hoping for relief.
My sister has been getting acupuncture therapy for several months in PA for a back problem and was told by the woman treating her that she
has had much success helping her patients.

I contacted Dr. Ming Yang after being given her name by my primary doctor and first saw her on May 13th. To my surprise and great pleasure I
have been headache free since that morning. I’ve had 3 additional treatments and have yet to get a headache. Although Dr. Ming Yang probably
will disagree with my choice of words it has been nothing short of miraculous. I am hopeful that things will continue because this ‘new’
life has been fantastic.

I can’t thank Acupuncture & Oriental Health Care & Dr. Yang enough.

Chronic Headache, Anxiety & With Important Maintenance Treatment<

From: David P. 01/15/2017

I started coming to Dr. Yang six years ago to treat severe migraine headaches and other stress-related aches. She was able to relieve me of the headaches and sleeplessness. The headaches have not returned. I have been coming for general maintenance every two weeks since then. I always feel more relaxed immediately after treatment. She treats the entire body using needles literally from head to toe. I definitely recommend Dr. Yang if you are considering acupuncture as a treatment. I find it to be refreshing without the side-effects of drugs.

Severe Migraine, Anxiety & Poor Nutrition

From: Liza N. Oct 20 at 12:42 PM

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.

Occipital Neuralgia-Headache (Under Treatment From 97 to 103 Years Old Of 2015)

From: Barbara R. Saturday, July 14, 2012 3:04 PM
Subject: Jean J.sending letter.

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!

Severe Migraines, Allergy & Withdrawing Unnecessary Pain Meds

From: April G. Thursday, March 29, 2012 3:44 PM
Subject: April G. testimonial

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!

Severe Headache & IBS

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.

I was sleeping an additional 4 – 6 hours during the day, pain in the joints, back, feet, sore throats that would last weeks, brain fog, unable to pull words from my memory while having a conversation etc. I have been seeing Dr. Yang for a few weeks, and after the first visit, I noticed a big change. Each treatment brings me closer to my recovery. Dr. Yang is an amazing doctor, and a beautiful person!

Insomnia, Chronic Fatigue, Over Body Weight & Pains

From: Barbara S. Sunday, July 29, 2007 11:52:42 AM
Subject: testimonial

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: Richard k. 1/2/2015

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 B.

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.

Gastrointestinal Disorders

Severe Chronic Irritable Bowl Syndrom (IBS) For Over 40 years, Anxiety, & Depression

From: Anna Marie V. Dec 20, 2016 At 12:53 PM

I have been attending acupuncture sessions for several years. At first, I was very hesitant and felt it wasn’t really for me. My husband was already a patient with a problem that medicine could not help or solve even after surgery. After seeing the difference it was making for my husband’s pain and quality of life, I thought I would at least try the treatment. My intestinal bowel condition was not treatable and was considered a medical problem that medicine wouldn’t be able to reach. After attending several treatments, it seemed to help me with the condition and I am doing much better with this painful condition. Dr. Yang helped me to overcome the need for sleeping pills and I am no longer experiencing insomnia. After the treatment, I feel more energy in the following days and much more relaxed and able to deal with my bowel problem. Dr. Yang has helped me with her compassion and understanding. She is a dedicated person who is truly concerned about you. After getting to know her better, I found a fine person who cares and will work to help you conquer or lessen your problem so that your quality of life is much better. I would highly recommend her. I feel that her background and experience qualify her even more to help with difficult problems that medical science cannot solve or help.

Gastroparesis – Stomach Bloating with Severe Indigestion & PMS

From: CJ.Booker Oct 23, 2015 at 8:02 AM
Testimony

When I first came to Dr. Yang as a 41 year old female,  I was bloated daily for 2 years, diagnosed with gastro-paresis from an unknown cause and not able to be cured.  I also had chronic knee pain from bone on bone arthritis.  In addition, I suffered from severe PMS symptoms including almost unbearable cramps from adenomyosis . I was taking tons of Motrin and was even prescribed  a narcotic pain medication for the really bad days.  The monthly menstrual pain was so bad that I would be up at night pacing. Just a mess.  I was very doubtful that acupuncture could help me, but at this point I felt I had nothing to lose.  I told Dr. Yang that if she could actually help me that I would be amazed.

After 3 sessions, I didn’t feel much different.  I persisted with the treatments because I decided I would do 10 sessions to give it a good, fair try.  After the 4th or 5th session, I noticed I was not bloated and did not have any pain. Needless to say, I was amazed!  However, I started paying close attention waiting for my symptoms to return thinking I was just having a good week.  Week after week being treated with acupuncture, I continued to have very little pain and no bloating at all.  When I speak of Dr. Yang to my family, I refer to her adoringly as my “magician”.  I do not know what I would do without Dr. Yang.  She has me feeling completely normal again, in perfect health.  I had forgotten what that felt like.  I have not taken any pain medication whatsoever for over 2 months now.

Acupuncture has proven to me how powerful our mind, body connection really is.  Dr. Yang’s technique is unmatched in my opinion.  She is very caring towards her patients and truly wants to help.  She has taken the time to have long conversations on more than one occasion with me to try to help me and encourage me to reduce the stress in my life which is at the root of almost all of my ailments.  I am so very thankful to have found Dr. Yang, she has me feeling fantastic! I am eternally grateful.

Acid Reflux & Constant Dry Cough

From: Dr.Lorraine I. at 6:09PM, May 30th of 2016

Dear Dr. Yang, I don’t know how to thank you for all your compassionate care. I have suffered for several years from a constant dry cough from the esophageal irritation due to GERD (reflux). I had a great deal of stomach acid every night and was often eating Tums all night. When I finally went to the gastroenterologist for help, endoscopy indeed showed that I had GERD. The doctor immediately put me on a proton pump inhibitor (Prilosec) which helped with the cough and the acid but also caused some discomfort and GI side effects. I took the drug for one year until a few months ago, research was published showing that Prilosec and drugs like it can cause early Alzheimer’s disease. I immediately sought a more holistic approach to my problems and signed up for acupuncture treatments from you . In just 6-8 treatments, I began to have a much more manageable level of acid reflux. My cough occurs only a few times a day now, usually in the morning after coffee. You also encouraged me to eat smaller meals in the evening, and not to lie down or sleep for several hours after eating. I have also tried to cut down on alcoholic drinks as you suggested. I did not think it possible that in following this advice and undergoing just 8 acupuncture treatments I could feel so much better but I am now a believer. Surely, your Western and Eastern medical education combined with your neuroscience research have helped you formulate unique solutions to common but painful health issues like reflux. Thank you again for your continued care and dedication in striving to make a real difference in your patient’s well being.

Acid Reflux, Dizziness & Anxiety

From: Susan G. Apr 7th. of 2016

Dr. Yang has helped me tremendously!   I’ve been to several doctors and alternative medicine practitioners on my path back to good health.  Some of them helped me to some degree, but never enough to give me hope of feeling “normal” again.  I suffered from dizziness and light sensitivity for two years before treating with Dr. Yang.  Finally, I have found relief! She also got me off of the acid reflux medicine I’d been on for several years!  That in itself is amazing! Dr. Yang takes a lot of time to go over your medical history and cover all the issues. She is a very caring person and truly wants to help you get well.  I’ve been treating with Dr. Yang for seven months.  In the beginning I needed to see her twice a week.  Now I’m treating with her once a week or every nine or ten days.  My issues were chronic for a long time, and it hasn’t been a quick process to get better, but it has been a steady progression of improvement.  I am feeling 90% better, which is wonderful!  I am very grateful that I found Dr. Yang!

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

IBS With Diarrhea, Lower Back Pain & Over Body Weight

From: Penny B. Monday, February 11, 2008 1:53:11 PM

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.

IBS  & Severe Headache

From: Terry M. Sunday, May 13, 2007 5:45:01 PM

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.

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

From: Cheryl K. Friday, August 15, 2008 11:13:50 AM

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 C. 02/07/2014

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: Anna R. 2:02pm 12/29/2014

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 Shannon L.

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: Marc A. 01/26/2015 12:26 PM

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.

Neck Pain, Back Pain, Abdominal Pain After Multiple Injuries & Surgeries  

From: Brian G. July 22, 6:67pm

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: Angie R.

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 W. April 27, 2014, 5:34:11 PM

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.

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:Darlene K. Thursday, August 4, 2011 6:43 PM

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 🙂

Lower Back Pain

From: Shirley L. Fri, July 30, 2010 7:12:57 PM

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

From: Sharon D. January 16, 2009 2:27:03 PM

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.

Sciatica

Sciatica Pain, Anxiety and Body Weight Control

From: Stacey A. . 11/16/2016

I highly recommend Dr. Yang. I developed sciatica on my left side. The pain was so bad, I couldn’t sleep at all for 2 straight nights, and I couldn’t stand up straight anymore. Within the first 2 visits with Dr. Yang, I felt more relaxed and the pain dulled immensely. I’ve been to her 10+ times, and I feel better and better every time. I no longer feel the pain in my leg or back. She treated my whole body, and even included nutritional advice to help with weight control and energy levels. I strongly recommend her; you won’t regret it.

Sciatica Pain and Over Body Weight Control
From: Carol P. 02/15/2015

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.

Chronic Lower Back Pain & Sciatica Pain

From: Linda K. 08/07/2013, 6:41am

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

From Hannah P. Wednesday, July 25, 2007 2:28 PM

Subject: Testimony

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.

Groin Ligament Pulling Pain & Depression

From: Linda S. Sunday, November 4, 2007 10:35:30 AM

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: John K. June 27, 2007 1:07:44 PM

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!

Lower Back Pain & Anxiety

From: MaryJane B. Sunday, June 3, 2007 10:19:03 AM

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.

I now sleep 8 hours per night soundly and again walk like a normal person. Also after 3 treatments I discovered that two tumors I had on my left hand for over 10 years had all disappeared.

Foot Pain & Withdrawing Conventional Pain Meds

From: Melisa D. 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,

Chronic Hives, Asthma, Wellbing Maintenance

From: Lynn K. 11/25/2016 At 6:03pm

Dr. Ming Yang is an outstanding and caring professional. She has assisted me with illnesses and symptoms that no other healthcare provider has been able to address and resolve. And improvement happens in record time. Dr. Yang is always responsive to my needs and concerns. She understands the human body in an amazing and unique fashion. Dr. Yang is a regular component of my ongoing health maintenance. I saw her initially for hives, but her treatment of my health conditions has now gone well beyond that. Wonderful healer!

Shingles Pain with Severe Stomach Ache

From: Gemma F. Nov.18th. 2015

Dr. Ming Yang was a great help to me.  After contacting Shingles and going to my primary care physician I took the prescribed med without it helping. I went online to find what I could do on my own and in doing that burned the lining of my stomach. I found Dr. Yang online and called her at 10 pm on a Sunday night thinking to just leave a message for Monday morning, but ten minutes later she called and I had an appointment the next day. She squeezed me into her schedule because she thought I sounded in trouble.  Because of my stomach pain I couldn’t eat and was still miserable with the Shingles.  Dr. Yang helped me very much and a few weeks later I am free of the shingle pain, and my stomach is back to normal and I am eating well. Dr. Yang is a very caring person who takes her profession very seriously, in that she wants to help you feel better. That is her focus. And her staff is as compassionate as she is. I was very lucky to have found Dr. Yang.

Skin Disorder-Psoriasis & Sciatica Pain

From: Ann Marie S. Sunday, May 12, 2013 3:37 PM
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: Rosana C.

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:Lorren W.

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!

Skin Disorder-Rash

From: Maria R. Sunday, July 22, 2007 7:41:43 AM
Subject: Testimonial

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

From: Dianna G. Wednesday, June 27, 2012 8:33 AM

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

Smoking Cessation

From: Ejaye 09/12/2006

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

Stroke

Post Stroke With Torticollis

From: Ragnhild M. 09/2012

William H. M. is a 78 year old male who sustained a CVA on May 2, 2010. He was on life support for one week. He had multiple complications after his CVA to include: dysphasia, pneumonia, feeding tube placement dense hemiplegic of his left upper and lower extremities, left field cut and neglect, painful neck and left upper extremity. PMHX includes: pacemaker, DVT, diabetes, CAD CABG, IVC Filter, a fib, bowel tumor resection and prostate cancer.

Mr. William M. had the stroke while visiting his son in Jackson, NJ, he was taken by ambulance to Centra-State Hospital in Freehold, NJ; after their evaluation he was helicopter to Capital Health in Trenton, NJ, where he stayed for two weeks. At that time, a feeding tube was inserted as well as his being place on a respirator. When he left Capital Health, he was sent to Marlton Rehabilitation Hospital in Marlton, NJ for another two weeks. During these four weeks, he was unable to eat because of his inability to swallow. He received physical, occupational and speech therapy at Marlton Rehab. He was then transferred to Wiley Mission Rehab Facility in Marlton, NJ where he stayed for 3 months. He again received physical, occupational and speech therapy, and within his three month stay he was able to slowly regain his swallowing ability and was able to eat whole food when he left. Even with all of the therapy he received Mr. Moyer still had a problem with a painful neck and tilting to the right.

After arriving back at his home he received home therapy for about two weeks and then received outpatient therapy at the Marlton Rehab Outpatient facility for another two weeks. During that time he developed a hematoma in his right groin, so his outpatient therapy ceased. During the past two years he has been admitted to the hospital with seizures, congestive heart failure and a blockage in his colon.

His pain management doctor, Trina Lisko, suggested we try Botox injections for his neck. He had the five injections at three month intervals. The first four injections helped the spascity in his neck, but the fifth injection did not help so Dr. Lisko suggested we find a good Chinese acupuncturist. We asked one of our Chinese neighbors and she suggested Dr. Ming Yang.

We have been seeing Dr. Yang since April 5, 2012, at first we saw her three times a week but then cut it down to twice a week. Dr. Yang shows a genuine interest in her patients, she not only treats his neck pain and spascity, she treats the whole body. She detoxificated his system, Mr. Moyer was on quite a few different medications, but has slowly come off of neutronten, a nerve pain medication. We are hopeful that in the future he will be able to reduce some of his other medications. Also, prior to his acupuncture he had difficulty swallowing water, but the acupuncture has helped so now he can swallow water without coughing. Dr. Yang always emphasizes how important it is to drink water and encourages him to drink more.

Since we started the acupuncture Mr. Moyer’s neck has gone from almost touching his right shoulder about a 10 degree angle to about an 85 degree angle. We plan to continue with the treatments and hopefully his neck will go to a 90 degree angle and he will be able to sustain it with less treatments.

Tinnitus, Vertigo & Motion Sickness

Tinnitus

From: Joseph K.

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.

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: Anna R. at 2:02pm 12/29/2014

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!
