I highly recommend Dr. Yang to anyone suffering from dizziness and/or vertigo who has first been checked out thoroughly by his or her physician to rule out systemic illness yet cannot find specific causes or relief.

Although I am generally a very healthy person, several years ago I began to experience unexplained bouts of intermittent dizziness. After being examined thoroughly by various doctors and blood labwork and diagnostic tests performed to rule out systemic illness, I was told that dizziness is unfortunately a very common chronic condition without definitive answers as to the causation. Since in a majority of cases the cause cannot be determined, a cure is not possible and people are just told to learn to live with it. Vestibular rehabilitation exercises were recommended to cope with the symptoms. I followed this recommendation and felt that the vestibular rehabilitation exercises are helpful but by no means a cure - they merely help you cope so as to minimize the impact of the dizziness or vertigo during one's daily activities. Anti-nausea drugs are often suggested but I did not want to go the drug route.

After exhausting the limited possibilities offered by conventional Western medicine, I thought of acupuncture. I had tried acupuncture with different practioners over the years quite successfully for bursitis and tendonitis from sports and overuse injuries. Most recently, I had seen a different acupuncturist for gynecological issues and mentioned the dizziness. This particular acupuncturist's specialty was gynecology and she thought my dizziness could be caused by a possible hormone imbalance.. She tried several times to help the dizziness, but I found no relief. I continued to research and found Dr. Yang's web site.

I realized that while Dr. Yang treats many conditions, she had developed a special interest and expertise in treating dizziness and vertigo. I decided to give Dr. Yang a try but remained quite skeptical because I did not find relief with the previous acupuncturist. During my initial exam with Dr. Yang, I told her that the previous acupuncturist thought my dizziness was caused by hormonal imbalance. Dr. Yang explained that hormonal imbalance is a frequent cause of dizziness but in my particular case, she had other ideas. Dr. Yang felt that in my particular case, the problem was likely caused by an issue relating to the combination of my ear, jaw, neck and upper back. Hence her needle placement was in entirely different spots than the previous acupuncturist had used. Dr. Yang also suggested a few simple dietary recommendations which are good ideas for everyone -- avoid excessive salt and sugar -- which she felt could exacerbate vestibular problems by causing water retention.

I was shocked that after my third session with Dr. Yang, I felt a real improvement. I continued for a few more sessions and the dizziness steadily abated until it was completely gone. I was shocked because I really had not expected positive results at all given that my previous acupuncturist was unable to help. Therefore, Dr. Yang's success could not be the result of a placebo effect.

As I write this testimonial, I have been free of dizziness for months. Thanks to Dr. Yang, I have been able to resume my normal exercise routine and daily activities. I urge anyone with dizziness to of course first rule out systemic illness with their physician, and then try acupuncture with Dr. Yang who is a tremendously skilled practitioner with a special interest in treating dizziness and vertigo. Even if one has tried acupuncture before for their dizziness to no avail, it is worth trying again with Dr. Yang. Dizziness and vertigo can have many causes -- so after disease has been ruled out by one's physician -- it is imperative to try acupuncture with a highly skilled practitioner such as Dr. Yang who has specific and extensive experience with this particular problem.

46 years old, Natural Pregnancy.????

I want to thank Dr. Yang and Dr. Liu for their wonderful works on my natural pregnancy! I am 46 years old; I was off the pills for about 2 years and tried to conceive since then. I always skip my period with irregular menses because of my high FSH level. None of my doctors wanted to try IVF or IUI with my own eggs. After 15 sessions of acupuncture and herbal treatment with Dr. Yang, I became pregnant by myself naturally! Acupuncture really works and it's miracle! I am now already 15 weeks pregnant.
