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.

    Migraine Headaches & Weight Loss…

    “I first met Dr. Linda Wu when I was desperate for help to alleviate my migraine headaches. I have suffered with them for 35 years and tired everything, except acupuncture. Dr. Wu’s approach to treatment with traditional herbal medicine and acupuncture really appealed to me and we began treatments immediately. She explained how acupuncture would help me and outlined her plan for treatment.

    Today my migraines are almost non-existent, something which believed was not possible until met her. Once free of the debilitating migraines, I was able to discuss with Dr. Wu my desire to then shed my excess weight. She is obviously very knowledgeable and we discussed in detail what this would entail. We then embarked upon a weight loss programme and I did exactly as she advised. The results were dramatic; forty-five pounds lighter and four sizes smaller.

    Dr. Wu’s compassion and understanding really made a difference for me and the whole process was much easier than I anticipated. I will continue to see Dr. Wu am convinced that her acupuncture treatments and knowledge of traditional herbal medicines are much better for me than a visit to the family physician for a prescription. I highly recommend anyone interested in improving their health see Dr. Wu for treatments, the results speak for themselves. I am profoundly grateful to Dr. Wu for changing my life.”
