Oliver's approach to addressing health is to consider the whole self and help decipher how the emotional and spiritual tie into physical infirmities. Through my acupuncture sessions with him I have noticed marked improvement where visiting two different physical therapists over the course of a year had seen minimal results. He listens to the symptoms as much as he listens to ascertain the root cause and snuff out the infirmity there through acupuncture and Chinese herbs. Menhong really has made a difference in my life.

have seen several Dr's of Traditional Chinese Medicine in my life but never a practitioner of Classical Chinese Medicine. Oliver is truly a master of his craft and has studied under some of the most intelligent and inspiring masters of not only the Martial Arts but also of Chinese Medicine in all it's facets both in this country and the Far East.

I have had severe head/nerve pain for almost ten years and in one session he significantly decreased my pain to the point where I would say I have the honor of benefiting from one of Oliver's small miracles. He also worked on my spine and in one session I was walking better, didn't know such a thing was possible !

Oliver is also an extremely kind and gentle man, a very gifted healer and visionary, he is amazing !

I have been going to Oliver for over 6 years. He is caring, compassionate, funny, and has a vast knowledge of chinese medicine, tai chi, massage, and chi gong. If you want an acupuncturist that does five element acupuncture then you should see Oliver. He sees the whole person and not just the symptoms.

He sees his role as a partnership with western medicine. He doesn't tell you that western medicine is bad. When I first started seeing him, I told him I had severe degenerative discs in my low back. He was honest and told me that he could help relieve my pain somewhat, but not actually make my discs better again. When I decided to have back surgery, he was supportive and treated me before and after. I think part of the reason why I made a full recovery is from going to Oliver. I saw Oliver through my first pregnancy. He helped relieve my morning sickness and even correctly guessed the sex! If he feels that he cannot help you with a specific problem, he will refer you to someone else. He doesn't tell you that you need to come every week. He isn't pushy about buying herbs from him. He is definitely not in it for the money. I hardly ever get sick. I attribute this to acupuncture.

Effective, professional, knowledgeable, informative, and kind - Oliver Chu is a rare and wonderful practitioner. I have been receiving treatments for 4 years for stress, pulled muscles, emotional distress, and basic maintenance.

His treatments are pain free and lasting. His rates are great, very affordable. If you are new to acupuncture or been to other practitioners and are looking for a change, I would, without hesitation, encourage you to visit the Menhong Clinic.

Over the last 3-4 years triathlons have become a big part in my life. Since I putting in a lot of hrs of training (20-25 hrs a week), muscle aches and other pains are not that uncommon. Shoulder injuries, legs, Achilles, muscle pulls, the mental drain and so on.

Oliver has been working on me in the beginning phase (we call maintenance), the peak phase of training and then pre-race, race period and post race. Thru acupuncture, Oliver has helped me overcome these obstacles. It is not just the acupuncture he has helped me with; it is also his wisdom of life in general. Oliver has helped me get mentally prepared for the races and helped me overcome some of the pre-race jitters I get, the fear of failing or not doing well.

It seems like every time I go to him, Oliver inherently knows already what I need. At times it not just the training, it is also life in general. It is a real pleasure talking with Oliver as well as working with him, and receiving work by him.

I had a bike crash last year. With that comes the fear of crashing again or you start to ??slow?? down. A week after the crash, I saw Oliver and he started to work on me. I need to say that I have never healed so fast before. Not just physically, also mentally. I have a long season ahead of me this year in 2009. I am looking forward to seeing Oliver again.

Oliver is part of my training and my life. Chinese Medicine does work wonders? Quality over quantity. Thank you Oliver for helping me!! For helping me, being who I am and helping me find my purpose in life!!

Running has been a part of my life for nearly 30 years, so I was very distraught when a hip injury forced me to stop. I consulted a sports medicine physician who advised me to stop running. For many reasons, this advice was unacceptable to me.

With a combination of Tuina bodywork, acupuncture and rest, Oliver had me back to my usual running schedule in about six months. I was so impressed by the results of treatment, that I continue to see Oliver for ongoing health maintenance.

Oliver is a holistic healer drawing on his knowledge of Chinese Medicine, acupuncture, Tuina bodywork and nutrition. He is passionate about his work as a healer and continues to explore new knowledge to apply in his practice.

I am a registered nurse and I am trained in Western medicine. However, from my experience, Western medicine is limited in terms of its ability to treat musculo-skeletal injuries. I have seen Oliver over the past couple of years for several complaints including pulled muscles in my shoulder and groin and a repetitive stress injury to my thumb.

Within 48 hours of each visit, the problem has completely or almost completely resolved, thanks to Oliver's knowledge and expertise. I refer all of my friends with similar complaints to him and all have been extremely satisfied with the results. From my perspective, he is truly a ??miracle worker??! Thanks, Oliver!!

Oliver is our resident acupuncturist and accomplished teacher of bodywork, tai chi, and Chinese medicine. He has been a positive force here in the OMI (Oceanview, Merced, and Ingleside) district of San Francisco since 2000 with the inception of the tai chi classes primarily for seniors that are given for no cost to its?? participants. These classes began as a need to promote ??healthy aging?? for seniors in high-risk neighborhoods like the OMI.

He has opened his clinic on Ocean Avenue ??Menhong Clinic? in 2000 as an Eastern approach to injury and healing. I have referred my family and friends to Oliver, and he always work very positively and personably with everyone.

His knowledge and applications of Eastern medicine have made him very popular and the first person I engage when I have questions about personal injuries or general medical conditions. I highly recommend Oliver for his hard work, dedication, and pride to service for others!

I began seeing Dr Oliver Chu for my on-going migraines. Let me start off by saying that I was very skeptical and reluctant as to the benefits acupuncture may provide for my long-standing problem. From the start, he was honest in telling me that he could not cure my migraines, but that he could possibly decrease my pain level. When I started seeing Oliver, my migraines reduced to 1 time a month. Now, they occur even less frequently averaging from 1 time a month to 1 time every 3 months. (It depends on my stress level.)
Not only has the frequency decreased, but also the intensity of the pain. I no longer have to waste a whole day ??sleeping off? my migraine. Now, I sleep for approximately the day and then can continue with the rest of my day including going to work. Oliver has also helped with various muscle aches such as my low back and neck/shoulder region. I have recommended Oliver to my friends and family.

Dr Oliver Chu has been seeing my mom since 1998 when she had her stroke. From the very beginning to present day, Oliver has not wavered in his dedication and compassion working with my mom. Utilizing a diverse approach, he treats her by incorporating different perspectives as an acupuncturist to his vast knowledge in body/balance work.
He often suggests exercises to improve her balance and speech. When we have special concerns, he addresses them promptly. His warm and gentle demeanor makes one feel as if you can ask him anything. He is very professional and honest with what his services entail. My mom and my family have been very pleased with him.
