Your first visit

  1. Acupuncture treats more than pain
  2. Acupuncture heals patients by restoring patients' own body balance, improving their circulation, enhancing the immune system, releasing stress and tensions in their bodies. So, it is helpful for a wide variety of problems including colitis, neuropathy, skin diseases, women disease, infertility, cancer, infection, gout, common cold, emotional stress, to name a few.

  3. Don't go in with empty stomach
  4. Acupuncture could move your internal energy quite a bit and restore your body balance. If you don't eat beforehand, you might experience lightheadedness, dizziness or even fainting. It isn't necessary to have a full meal, but at least a snack to help your body have enough energy to maximize the treatment's potential.

  5. Wear loose clothes
  6. Acupuncturist may need to access areas under your clothes. So wear loose clothes for easy rolling up above elbows and knees. If necessary, you may need to remove your clothes to access your back. But they will properly drape you so that only small portions of your skin are exposed.

  7. Acupuncture needles are thinner than hypodermic needles
  8. Acupunctures are about the width of two to three strands of hair. You normally barely feel the needle insertion or just like a pinch. It is very common that the patients fall asleep snoring and wake up very relaxed.

  9. Acupuncturists do not reuse needles
  10. All needles are only used once and then disposed. This means there is a virtually no chance you will contract a disease from receiving acupuncture.

  11. One treatment is often not enough to cure what ails you
  12. A lot of times, acupuncture can greatly improve your symptoms for the very first time treatment. But don't expect acupuncture to miracally solve all the problems with a single visit. Thus is why acupuncture often recommend subsequent treatments.

Services

  • Core service: Acupuncture
  • Acupuncture is the insertion of thin, disposable stainless steel needles through the skin at specific sites to regulate the body´s qi, i.e. oxygen, blood circulation, nerve impulses, hormones, etc. According to Traditional Chinese Medical Theory, qi flows throughout the body in a network of channels and vessels.

    Acupuncture serves to harmonize and distribute the qi to areas of the body that contain blockages or deficiencies in order to facilitate the healing process. Recently, the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the World Health Organizations (WHO) recognized the effectiveness of acupuncture in treating many conditions.

  • Auxiliary services: Herbs, Cupping, Scraping, Infrared Heating, Electroacupuncture, Blood letting, Acupressure etc.
  • Herbal medicine, also known as herbalism or botanical medicine, is a medical system based on the use of plants or plant extracts that may be eaten or applied to the skin. Since ancient times, herbal medicine has been used by many different cultures throughout the world to treat illness and to assist bodily functions. While herbal medicine is not licensed profession in the United States,herbal remedies in the form of extracts, tinctures, capsules and tablets as well as teas may be recommended by healthcare practitioners of many different disciplines as a practical way to address a wide variety of medical conditions.

    Scrapping, also known as Gua Sha, is a healing technique used in Asia by practitioners of Traditional Medicine, in both the clinical setting and in homes, but little known in the West. It involve palpation and cultaneous stimulation where the skin is pressured, in strokes, by a round-edged instrument; that results in the appearance of small red petechiae called 'sha', that will fade in 2 to 3 days.

    Raising Sha removes blood stagnation considered pathogenic, promoting normal circulation and metabolic processes.The patient experiences immediate relief from pain, stiffness, fever, chill, cough, nausea, and so on. Gua Sha is valuable in the prevention and treatment of acute infectious illness, upper respiratory and digestive problems, and may other acute or chronic disorders.

    Cupping is one of the oldest methods of traditional Chinese medicine. The earliest recorded use of cupping dates to the early fourth century, when the noted herbalist Ge Hong wrote about a form of cupping in A Handbook of Prescriptions. Later books written during the Tang and Qing dynasties described cupping in a great detail; one textbook included an entire chapter on "fire jar qi", a type of cupping that could alleviate headaches, dizziness and abdominal pain. Originally, practitioners would use hollowed animal horns for cups, and place them over particular points or meridians. Today, most acupuncturist use cups made of thick glass or plastic, although bamboo, iron and pottery cups are still used in other coutries. Glass cups are the preferred method of delivery, because they do not break as easily as pottery or deteriorate like bamboo, and they allow the acupuncturist to see the skin and evaluate the effects of treatment.

    All services are provided in private treatment rooms.

    Besides acupuncture, acupuncturists will determine whether the patients need auxiliary services and which auxiliary service(s) are needed.

Testimonials

  • Carlene Harwood ---06/20/2016
  • Peter Moore (from google review)
  • Being at my wits end with my joint problems due to small autoimmune disease that causes my joints to scar and freeze; life was getting to be difficult with my inability to bend to tie my shoes and put on shirts without shoulder pain. As a last resort I finally decided to give Acupuncture a try.

    I am so fortunate to have found Wendy and her services. On the first treatment she helped me regain movement in my left hip that had frozen due to injury for 15 years. She also started treatment on my right frozen shoulder and an area in my back that was permanently spasm protecting a fracture from when I was a child. My shoulder responded in 3 treatments and has me thinking of going back to professional tennis coaching. It took a little longer to get "The Brick" as she calls it out of my back. My back was so stiff she did not think she could be of any help. But she did it...She got the permanent back spasm to subside.

    Eternally grateful for finding Wendy and her clinic. I recommend if you have pains, do not wait to find Wendy. She can seriously change your life.

  • Joe Inocando (from google review)
  • I would highly recommend Acupuncture Herbs and Beyond. Facility is clean and enough parking. Wendy really knows how what she’s doing, I was skeptical at first, during first session, but after I told her about my back pain issues. I feel so much better after I was treated. I will come back again for my next acupuncture .

  • Dennis Chan (from google review)
  • I was curious about the effects of acupuncture. Before I went I had chronic neck and back pain. After one session, she was able to get rid off these problems. After I described the problems to her, she was able to identify it and immediately fix it. The relief that I felt was immense. I felt like a 100-pound weight just came off my shoulders. Overall she is very kind, helpful and approachable. This acupuncture clinic is one that I would definitely recommend.

  • Tatyana Shulman (from google review)
  • I am 72 years old. I used to have very painful joint. Doctors recommended me to take steroids.I decided to come to Wendy in acupuncture herbs and beyond for acupuncture treatment. Since then, I don't have pain at all and I don't take any medication. I also took thyroid medication for the past 3 years. Since I have acupuncture with Wendy, my thyroid is normal and my physician is surprised and took me away from medication. I used to have sleeping problem. My sleep is way better than before as well since acupuncture. I highly recommend people who have problems that traditional medicine cannot solve to try acupunature.

  • Xujing D. (from Yelp review)
  • My 83 years old Mom got shingles last December, though she was able to take anti-virus prescription medicine within 48 hours after the rash developed, the rash expanded very fast to her entire legs and bottoms, and the severer nerve pain she suffered got worse each day. It was very scary to us and the doctor said it could take a few weeks before it gets better, for many patients, especially for the elderly, the lingering pain could last for months or even years. So we decided to try acupuncture with Dr. Li, as we heard/learned that's probably the most effective treatment to stop shingle nerve pain. We prepared for a lengthy treatment when we started acupuncture with Dr. Li. At the first treatment, in addition to acupuncture, Dr. Li also applied some external medicine on the rashes. The rash blisters quickly dried in the next couple of days. My mom said the pain eased a little it and the burning pain stroke less frequently. On the third day, we had the second treatment with Dr. Li. It was UNBELIEAVABLE that my Mom said that though she still felt pain on the way home, the pain was almost gone at the night! The next day she woke up pain free!!! That's a miracle!! We didn't expect that acupuncture could work so fast and I talked to some friends who have family members treated shingles with other acupuncture doctors, none of them totally got rid of shingles pain in just TWO treatments! Even a high school friend of mine in China, whose mother also got shingles earlier last year, told me that her mother was treated with the very experienced acupuncture doctor in China and was recovered after a few month. Thank you so much Dr. Li for your highly skilled, precise acupuncture treatment! I could not imagine otherwise how much my 83-year-old Mom would suffer. For anyone who seeks treatment on shingles or other areas with acupuncture, I highly recommend Dr. Li.---1/28/2018
