I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Luo. He is very patient and kind. He has helped me tremendously. After being in a car accident and having all kinds of problems with pain and broken bones, I can honestly say he helped me throughout my recovery period. I was suffering from low energy, lower back pain, inflammation, fatigue, poor circulation, stiffness, arthritis, thyroid problems, breathing problems/asthma, memory loss, and several other problems. He was very professional and sympathetic with me. He genuinely cares for his patients. He carefully listens to your health problems and treats you accordingly. He works with your schedule and does not make a fuss if you have to change your appointments. He spends a significant amount of time with you during your visit, and responds to your questions. He does not make you feel rushed like so many other doctors do, just to be able to bring in another patient. I have been treating with him for about 6 mos, and I now have good energy, I sleep well, my inflammation has improved tremendously. My asthma, blood pressure and thyroid is under control. I highly recommend him to everyone I come across....especially when they notice and comment on my big improvement. I went from a wheel chair, to a walker, to a cane, to now walking on my own. I feel rejuvenated, and I owe it all to this kind man. I only wish I had started treating with him a long time ago....I will continue to see him for maintenance purposes....I do not want to fall back to feeling how I used to feel...Give him a try and you will see the difference after a few sessions...God Bless Him for all his kindness.
DISCLAIMER: I am petrified of being stuck with needles. I have trouble with blood being drawn during annual physical exams and I pass out when donating blood.
That being said, Kevin at Texas Harmony Acupuncture is a master at inserting an acupuncture needle without me even feeling it being inserted.
I have been plagued for 3 years with muscle pain in my upper back, shoulders, and neck areas. I have spent hundreds if not thousands of dollars with myofascial massage therapists over the years with little pain relief. I would go through myofascial massage treatments in which relief would only last 3 days or so and then the muscle pain would return.
As a last resort, I decided to try acupuncture after speaking with my friend Becky who highly recommended Kevin at Texas Harmony. This was a HUGE decision for me since I HATE needles.
Kevin was instrumental in relieving my muscle pain in 6 sessions. I am currently 60 days muscle pain free in my upper back, shoulders and neck areas. I even have increased flexibility which is helping me with my workouts.
Kevin provided both muscle massage and acupuncture treatments in each session. The acupuncture treatments were both painless and very effective in treating my muscle pain relief.
If you are in pain or discomfort and have not considered acupuncture as a method of pain relief, and are tired of taking non-performing prescription pharmaceuticals, RUN TO TEXAS HARMONY so that Kevin can help you out.
The other day, I bent over trying to get something and felt a sharp pain in the center of my lower back (Yes, I'm getting old!). Not knowing what to do, I followed my good friend's advice and visited Dr. Luo's office.
He spent a long time listening to my story--where and how it happened, my general physical conditions, medical history, etc. etc. He was not only extremely knowledgeable and experienced, but also personable and kind.
I feel the patient-centered communication helps build trust between doctor and patient. To me, it is a key factor in choosing a doctor.
After just one session, my back pain was almost gone, and all pain disappeared in several days. I would definitely go back. Thank you!
I was seeking alternatives to having my gallbladder removed due to the excruciating pain my gallstones were causing. My insurance company, will not, cover any alternative medicine so my options were limited, economically.
Walking into Kevin's place, I was immediately put at ease. He asked many questions, listened attentively, and had an honest disposition. He did not promise to cure me, he simply aimed to make me feel better and, hopefully, help me pass the stones through the use of herbal medicine, massage and accupuncture.
The jury is still out on whether or not I have stones. All I know is I felt better after seeing him. I highly recommend what he has to offer.
He's funny too!
As a professional musician & pianist, I have suffered for the past 30 years with an injury to my hand known as dystonia. My fingers would involuntarily cramp up & not do their job at the keyboard. It was extremely frustrating & depressing as my livelihood consists of teaching & performing. After years of various diagnoses & treatments that were ineffective, I decided to try something other than the 'traditional western medicine" approach. That is when Kevin entered my life & saved me!
I am extremely impressed with Kevin's genuine concern, patience & honesty. At the end of our first consultation, we discussed the fact that, after 30 years of dealing with this injury, it may take many acupuncture treatments to see any significant results. I was willing to sign on!
However, after just a few treatments, I was thrilled to see miraculous results. For the first time in years, & in conjunction with piano wellness skills obtained a year earlier, I had more flexibility & dexterity in my fingers at the keyboard. My playing continues to improve!
I have & would recommend Kevin to anyone who is willing to consider acupuncture. He is the best!
After being diagnosed close to a year ago with Rheumatoid Arthritis the effects of RA has taken it's toll. I can honestly say that getting acupuncture treatments I have relief from pain and fatigue after each treatment and have more low pain & low fatigue days due to acupuncture than I do without the treatments. I have and would recommend Kevin to anyone with chronic pain who is seeking relief. On another note, Kevin's online appointment/scheduler works great and he's flexible when it comes to booked times as he has an online waiting list that will notify you if an opening becomes available during the date/time slot you requested. Absolutely give Kevin a try!
I will tell you that Kevin is my hero. I came back from vacation with a debilitating headache. I couldn't focus, couldn't work, couldn't do anything. My doctor put me in the hospital for 4 days with absolutely no relief. This went on for 2 weeks! Still in excruciating pain and very frustrated, my husband suggested acupuncture and Kevin Luo. I had never been to an acupuncturist before. Kevin was so nice and patient with me. After just one visit I was feeling a better and within a week, I was able to function again. I'm SOLD! I will always go and see Kevin before I try other treatments for any symptoms I may have. I have recommended him to all my friends and will continue to do so. I tell everyone he saved me and is my hero.
My good friend who is studying acupuncture recommended Kevin for my 4 year old who has suffered allergies with asthma. I was curious but it is always hard to start something new.
Seeing as his office is only about a 3 minute drive from my house, off of Spicewood Springs and Mesa, it is very convenient.
It took me about 6 months or so to motivate to meet with Kevin (after one asthma attack and trip to the Dell Children's ER), but was immediately pleased with him during the first visit. He is amazing with children and I could not believe that my son, aged 5 at the time of the first visit, allowed 2 needles to be administered in his legs. He went through a series of treatments in the Fall which improved his condition completely until Spring.
Of course my son is most affected by the oak pollens in the Spring, which was what caused the asthma attack last year. I started him a little later than I should have this Spring but he's doing great after over a month of treatments with Kevin. We are going every 2 weeks now. My son is responding very well to the accupuncture along with the western medicine that we still give him. He has almost no symptoms this Spring after about 2 treatments with Kevin.
Kevin is an awesome acupuncturist. I have fibromyalgia. December 2009, I was taking one anxiety pill and two antidepressants. The second antidepressant pill caused a few side effects. January 2010, I started treatments at TxHarmony. I remember going into Kevin??s office and just sitting there. We talked for a long time. I finally just said I just want to feel better. Within a few weeks, I was not taking any more anxiety or antidepressant pills. I feel Kevin brought my life back in focus.
Kevin was a great help to me. I suffered from hip pain for months, due to a lingering running injury . Physical therapy wasn't helping so I finally went for an alternative approach. I've never had a health professional take so much time to actually listen to my concerns the way that Kevin did. My first appointment lasted 90 minutes and at least half that time was just talking--he wanted the whole story and not just a summary, which was a new experience for me. He tried a couple of different treatments over the next couple of months and my pain decreased (considerably!) for the first time in nearly a year. I honestly don't know how it works but I don't really care.
I will absolutely go back to him with future health problems! Actually....I haven't been in awhile because my pain is under control but I miss the weekly chats. It was kind of like getting a bonus therapy session every week because Kevin was so concerned with my general well being. He would ask about my grad school applications, my dog, etc. Can't thank him enough!
Pros: great care, reasonable cost
This was my first experience with acupuncturist, Kevin is amazing! He helped treat a back injury in just a few sessions.
I came back a few months later for help with fertility. He was patient, thoughtful, and great at explaining his approach with me. I'm 3 months pregnant and due in September! I would highly recommend him for anyone considering acupuncture.
Pros: Skilled, caring, and great results!
I had never done acupuncture before, however, I'd already tried all sorts of pills and potions to revlieve the Austin allergies to no avail. Within a few weekly treatments - I was clear! For the first time in years I made it through the month of September without losing my voice and being a miserable mess! I now go once a month (sometimes less). The atmosphere is extremely relaxing and I look forward to it.
I travel alot for work and my schedule is always changing. Dr. Luo has an EXCELLENT online scheduler. I can go on there where ever I am at ANY time to book and cancel appointments. The system also sends auto reminders before the appointment. No annoying phone calls to remind me.
Dr. Luo is very personable, he takes the time to listen to ensure he is understanding the situation as a whole. All around I have had an excellent experience and I highly recommend using Dr. Luo if you are thinking of acupuncture.
Pros: Effective treatment, scheduling flexibility
I had never been to an accupuncturist prior to this. I had been diagnosed with a mild case of carpal tunnel syndrome, but traditional therapy had not produced any improvement. I went to Dr. Luo and he took time to fully understand my symptoms. He performed two treatments, one week apart. These treatments almost completely relieved my symptoms.
Pros: Soothing atmosphere, positive results
I can't thank Dr Luo enough for helping me with my back pain. I have used acupuncture for years, but this was my first time using it to treat my upper back pain. He made me feel at ease from the very first consultation and treatment. With his extensive knowledge of chinese medicine and his effective treatment I knew that this was the answer for my pain management. I was able to get off of my pain medication after the very first visit. And Kevin's warmth and scheduling flexibility always made my visits easy and enjoyable. I HIGHLY recommend TX Harmony for both new and experienced acupuncture patients.
Really appreciate the attention and wonderful care provided by Dr Luo (Kevin). Kevin was helpful in reducing pain in my knees and back after a single treatment. After several follow-up visits, results were felt immediately which allowed my to get back to being productive again. THANK YOU!!
Pros: Flexible in making appointment, effective treatment
I had never experienced acupuncture or chinese medicine treatment before. And because of Kevin's personal attention and sincere desire to help me with my anxiety, fatigue, headaches and smoke cessation I am becoming healthier and feeling great. After just my first treatment of accupuncture my ability to focus was 100 times better and with the combination of herbal medicine which he personalizes for me based on my symptoms it has made me feel great. My kids, my friends and my co-workers all see the difference. I have and will continue to recommend Kevin to all my friends, family and others that are tired of not getting results from Western Medicine and/or feeling that the clinical Dr's are not listening to all your concerns and issues. Give Kevin a call, he will listen and he will help and you will see results.
I highly recommend Kevin Luo of TxHarmony Acupuncture and Herbs. He treats my multiple health issues such as back pain, sciatica, insomnia, etc. Kevin is very kind and caring, and takes time to really listen to you. This is quite a change from Western medicine doctors who give you about five minutes to explain your symptoms and rush you out the door with a prescription. Kevin uses different treatments and combination of treatments such as acupuncture, massage and herbal medicine to treat each unique problem. He is a true scholar of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and I feel fortunate to have Kevin treating my health issues. I highly recommend him to all my friends and family.
Kevin is an amazing person, one who truly cares about his patients' well-being. He listens carefully to all your concerns and answers any questions you may have (however long is the list..). Whether it's a minor ailment or a more serious health problem - give acupuncture a try. For me it was struggling with acne (now gone without antibiotics! - can't remember when my skin looked so clear), menstrual pains (all gone!!), allergies (working on it) and few other minor health troubles. Kevin is so PATIENT!, knowledgeable, kind and professional with such a great sense of humor. Few more needles and several cups of herbs more (acquired taste!!!) and all I will need is an occassional "tune up". I truly believe so. I would
recommend Kevin to anyone seeking to promote their health.
A friend who I trust with advice, suggested I try acupunture/Chinese medicine for the pain in my back, and knee.The history of my issue goes back thirty some years, more recently pain and extreme muscle tightness in my knee, (which was totaly replaced) ten months ago. After learning of Dr. Luo on Citysearch, I made an appointment. From the moment I entered his office I could feel I had made the right decision. Dr. Luo listened to me , he made me feel at ease in disscussing the pain and problems I have. I also had regular general conversations with Kevin in the course of my treatments and found him to be a great human being as well. From my first treatment I discovered much relief, the immediate change is amazing. He perscribed medicine for an internal condition I've had bothering me for almost five years. The Dr.s' I have seen for this have only suggested a painful surgery and that the problem would eventually reoccur.I began taking Kevin's medicine for about five days, the condition had improved to almost gone.My recent visit to Austin of three months has ended and I'm now back in Pennsylvania. I will try to find someone in my area to continue Dr. Luo's suggested treatment for me and I will continue to return to him when I come back to Austin again. Thankyou Kevin-- see you inSeptember. Rex
Pros: appointments made are convenient, the place is clean and comfortable
I hurt my back and was hardly to move my whole body, and I went to visit Dr. Luo, he only gave me two treatments, and I recovered pretty fast. I have been very pleased with Dr. Luo as he is really a careful Dr. he is very nice and firendly. I would strongly recommand him to my friends. Thank you very much Dr. Luo.
I was recommended to Kevin Luo by someone a few months ago and I am have been very pleased with him. I have always been given excellent care by him. Kevin is very knowledgeable and friendly with a clean, inviting office environment. He helped to alleviate my migraines over the course of a few visits. I recommend him to anyone in the Austin area looking for a well educated and kind acupuncturist.
He is a gentleman and a scholar.
I have suffered from shoulder and upper back pain for years; I also had insommia. I have taken muscle relaxers, and gotten numerous massages. Nothing helped, it was just a temporary fix. I received a couple of treatments from Kevin and since then I have been pain free from my shoulder/ upper back area and sleep soundly. I was very amazed at the fast results. I have energy every day. Kevin has given me acupunture for vertigo, lower back pain and again within a couple of treatments I felt better. I always brag to my co-workers and family that acupunture works and recommend Kevin because he is gentle and caring and he takes time from his busy schedule and listens to me talk about my job, friends and family. Thanks Kevin
Pros: Great service
I strained my calf a couple of weeks back. Couldn't stand on the toe. Dr. Luo provided me effective treatment. Right now I am back to the court.
Thank you Dr. Luo!
For the past year or so I have been in moderate to severe pain around my right elbow area. I had gone to regular doctors time and time again and they all said the same. Put heat or cold on it and rest. Nothing seemed to work until I decided to give accupuncture a try. I was very skeptical at first but upon first meeting Kevin I was immediately put at ease. After four treatments my arm has not felt this good in years. I can actually shake someones hand wthout wincing in pain. Thank You Kevin!!!
Don't ask me to explain how putting needles in someones leg is supposed to heal thier arm but it does. I will never be a skeptic again and the next time I have pain anywhere, I know where I will call first.
Pros: No pain anymore with only a few visits
Wow what a relief! I had back surgery in 1987 and was rear ended in a car accident a year later. Needless to say I have been in pain for over 20 years. I had given up in 1990 deciding that if I was in pain, I must be alive! I had brain surgery in 2004, developing a tremor in my right hand, which made it difficult to eat...food would fall off of my fork before I could get it to my mouth. Depressing. A neighbor told my husband about her experience with acupuncture. I called my Insurance Company and was referred to Kevin Luo at Texas Harmony. What a blessing! After the first visit my husband and I went out to eat to celebrate our lack of pain...on the way home I suddenly realized that I had made it through the meal without a tremor! Yea! I can't tell you how excited I am to be without pain in over 20 years and to be able to eat without a tremor. I have been to countless doctors over the years; waiting in their waiting rooms forever, just to be rushed in to see the doctor for about 5 minutes, given a new pill and out you go. Not so with Kevin! He greets you with a smile and offers you hot tea or water. He is so caring; treating you as a human being, body and spirit. He listens gently for at least a half hour, answers any questions you may have, determines your treatment and then off you go to a very comforting treatment room. He is kind and professional. The needles are so small they do NOT hurt. If one is being placed in a tender spot, he'll let you know, but not to worry, it is only tender for a moment. He leaves you to relax for a half hour. My spirit has been lifted, my pain has subsided and my tremor is gone! I truly recommend Kevin and Texas Harmony! Acupuncture has been around for over 2,000 years...give it a try, I can tell you it really works!
Pros: Great location. Clean and well decorated office. Time spent, priceless!
I visited Kevin Luo after a friend receommend him to me. I had been suffering from severe nausea, dizziness, insomnia, weight loss, and general weakness and fatigue. After repeated visits to the ER and 2 different physicians, I knew I was not suffering from "a virus". In fact, 2 doctors just shrugged their shoulders and flat out told me they didnt' know what was wrong with me and sent me home. I had almost given up hope when decided to see Kevin. I felt I had more energy after just one accupuncture treatment and within 2 weeks, I was almost back to feeling normal again. I am now completely healthy and grateful I found such a wonderful Chinese medicine doctor. Kevin is very professional, very knowledgeable, kind, and focused. His off ice is in a convenient location and his office is clean and well decorated. I would definitely recommend TxHarmony to anyone looking to improve their overall health!
Pros: it works, location
When I stepped into the office of Kevin Luo I immediately felt at peace. He extended a warm welcome and gave a very thorough questionaire and exam to determine the root of suffering. His office was immaculate and the treatment room was cozy and cocooning. As I relaxed, he explained the technique of acupuncture and what it can achieve. The process was not painful at all and the result is superb. Shortly after leaving the office, the feeling of well-being overwhelmed me and my headache and pain was gone! I received a total of three treatments and look forward to others because acupuncture works and Dr. Luo is wonderful!
Thank you for your wonderful and professional treatment. After 6 visits of Acupunctures, my mother's long-time problem has been significantly improved about 90%. She is very happy with the treatment result. In fact, my mother had seen doctors in Western Medicine for years, she never had this significant improvement before. We highly recommend you to anyone who is looking for a good doctor in Chinese Medicine.
Once again, thank you very much!
Kevin at TxHarmony is very friendly and customer oriented. He made me feel very comfortable discussing my health concerns and gave me the most delicious tea after our session together. His office is beautifully decorated, quiet and in a great location. Highly recommended!
