Conditions Treated

Chinese medicine is a very comprehensive system of medicine. It works with your body to produce true healing instead of suppressing symptoms. A few of the conditions successfully treated by acupuncture and Chinese medicine:

General:

  • Women’s issues, including painful periods, menopause, and other gynecological issues. These are treated without requiring uncomfortable examinations.
  • Chronic pain, especially joint and muscle pain, arthritis, as well as headaches and other discomforts.
  • Fatigue, including chronic fatigue syndrome, or a general feeling of being down.
  • Most conditions that respond to drug treatment, respond even better to acupuncture and Chinese herbs – without side effects. However, we insist on partnering with your doctor to determine a proper course of treatment. Some medications need special care and planning.
  • Most chronic conditions such as allergies, asthma, and more respond extremely well to acupuncture.

    Acupuncture Treatment for Fertility

    My husband and I had been trying to conceive our first child for over a year. Dr. Linda Wu came highly recommended to us by a friend who had faced similar difficulties. During my first consultation, she told me stress was likely the major contributing factor to our problems. I was impressed with her overall knowledge and confidence on the topic of fertility, and began seeing her regularly for a couple months. Dr. Wu’s obvious experience and technique made me feel comfortable and relaxed. Sure enough, we were blessed with the conception of our beautiful daughter shortly after.

    We soon wanted to expand our family; however my hormones were still off-balanced from the birth of our daughter. I went to see Dr. Wu once again and explained to her my inconsistent monthly cycle, ovulation bleeding, which was all accompanied by very low energy levels. She recommended Chinese herbs, and began my treatment immediately. Within a month, my hormones were regulated, I had my first normal cycle, and my energy levels were back on track. I truly felt wonderful. To my surprise, we conceived our second child the same month!

    I will continue to see Dr. Linda Wu in the future. She helped my reproductive system without the use of invasive procedures or chemical drugs, and has improved my overall wellness. I highly recommend her acupuncture treatments.
