I’m 55 yrs old and not the healthiest woman around. The one thing I do know is I know when I am feeling poorly and my life is way too busy to take and day here and a day there to see one specialist after another. I’ve had issues with lower extremity swelling especially in my left leg since 2003 after my knee replacement. Swelling has gotten worse since that time which 4 yrs ago led me to having vein closure and wearing compression stockings. The intervention did help for a while but never really resolved anything. Two years ago, I found a fabulous interventional radiologist who found I needed stents in my iliac veins (groin area) to enhanced blood flow. The results were good with that as well.

Approx 3 1/2 months ago, the swelling became extreme. Leg pain and cramps, swelling over my shoes, night time burning and restless movement. Starting the day with 4 Advil just to get out of bed and dressed. Exhausted and dragging especially if my day was exceptionally long unexpectedly. So, thinking a stent may be blocked, I went to back to the vascular Doc and his studies all revealed perfectly patent stents. He too was concerned with the excessive swelling this time. With my blood pressure elevated, he recommended I have a cardiac workup fearing left side heart failure. Cardiology kindly fit me into their schedule within a day and after a million dollar workup, thankfully all is good with no heart failure noted. So now what. My boss had mentioned looking into acupuncture as she has had friends with positive results for a myriad of issues. So I hit the net. I looked for a little bit before finding Ming Yang. Fully reviewed her impressive resume and dialed the office. 5pm on a Friday evening, she answered the phone herself and began to do a mini assessment. I was so impressed with her and how she made me feel stating, “I know I will be able to help”. I received all of the new patient paperwork via email and my first appointment was the following morning!!! She explained the assessment and discussion would last at least an hour followed by treatment.

This woman is over the top amazing. Being a healthcare professional for almost 35 yrs myself, I thought I was a very well informed person. I was taught so much regarding nutrition, the basis for acupuncture and Chinese medicine and I honestly can’t even write everything. Dr Yang is such a wonderful clinician who has brought such a positive sense of self back to me that I lost long ago. The first treatment went very well. She reviewed her expectations and encouraged me to truly make the dietary changes she had spoken about. I left the office invigorated and very hopeful that I would begin to see results.

Treatment #2. Results are beginning to become noticeable. I just completed treatment #5 over two weeks time and I have lost 12 lbs. and the swelling has decreased over 10 cm in circumference at my ankle alone. A mass that had formed in the upper part of my calf is gone. I made the Dietary Changes recommended which have allowed me to already come off of my Reflux medication. My energy level is insane now. My leg, though still unattractive and somewhat deformed from several episodes of cellulitis over the years, is looking so much better. I feel so much better and have Ming Yang to whole heartedly thank!!! She has made my legs and my life so much better in so many ways! I wish I could give her 20 stars instead of 5. I can’t wait to see what the futures holds!!!

Thank you so much !!!!!

I am a 64-year-old male who has suffered from migraines since childhood.

Throughout most of my life my headaches have been intense with a frequency of two or three a month. However, in the last five years they started to increase in frequency. I resorted to taking more and more pain relievers and I began to notice they were less effective. I, then, sought out the help of a neurologist who prescribed Eletriptan. At first, this was like a miracle drug as I responded to the drug quite well and I was able to get through my migraines. However, over time my use of the Eletriptan per month started to increase. It seemed like on was hooked on it for any relieve since the traditional pain relievers didn’t help at all. Unfortunately, my insurance company had a cap on the number of pills it allowed. Initially, it was 8, but over time this was not enough.

Eventually, my doctor was able to get them to approve 12 per month. I was constantly counting how many pills were left and worrying whether I would make through the monthly allotment. At this point I was getting up with daily headaches and because of the amount of pills I was allowed I had to suffer through the less intense episodes. I started to focus my life around my daily headaches. It affected my work and social life. We were planning for the wedding of my daughter and while everyone was enjoying the process I was stressing out for fear of a migraine the day of the wedding. I did get through that day with a combination of Eletriptan and Excedrin Migraine. However, I knew I had to do something since I was suffering from classical medication overuse.

Upon my wife’s advice I decided to try acupuncture. After much research I chose Dr. Ming Yang. I decided to see her based on her comments to me that she treated the whole body and not just the migraines. My first appointment with her was January 13, 2018. She spent over an hour evaluating my situation and assured me that she could help me. However, she did request that I try to stop all medications. Although this was frightening, I knew I had to give it a shot. I was hoping that acupuncture would help me get through it. Since that day I stopped taking any medications for my migraines. At first, it was extremely difficult. Besides all the pain, it also impacted my work life. What encouraged me is that after my acupuncture treatments my headaches subsided. I went from daily headaches to two or three per week, to two or three per month. Although, I am not headache free, when you consider where I was with the daily headaches this was life changing. I highly recommend Dr. Yang for her compassionate care and her holistic approach to health through her acupuncture services and helpful advice on diet and stress management. Thank you, Dr. Yang!

I’ve suffered with almost daily headaches my entire adult life and have seen multiple doctors through the years hoping for relief.
My sister has been getting acupuncture therapy for several months in PA for a back problem and was told by the woman treating her that she has had much success helping her patients.

I contacted Dr. Ming Yang after being given her name by my primary doctor and first saw her on May 13th. To my surprise and great pleasure I have been headache free since that morning. I’ve had 3 additional treatments and have yet to get a headache. Although Dr. Ming Yang probably will disagree with my choice of words it has been nothing short of miraculous. I am hopeful that things will continue because this ‘new’ life has been fantastic.

I can’t thank Acupuncture & Oriental Health Care & Dr. Yang enough.

I started coming to Dr. Yang six years ago to treat severe migraine headaches and other stress-related aches. She was able to relieve me of the headaches and sleeplessness. The headaches have not returned. I have been coming for general maintenance every two weeks since then. I always feel more relaxed immediately after treatment. She treats the entire body using needles literally from head to toe. I definitely recommend Dr. Yang if you are considering acupuncture as a treatment. I find it to be refreshing without the side-effects of drugs.

I have been dealing with migraines for more than 10 years. Dr.Ming Yang has helped me decrease the amount of migraines and I no longer take medication that I used to take everyday of my life. She has helped me get my life back and I am extremely grateful for all that she has done to help me. She truly cares about her patients and wants to help them anyway she can. I highly recommend Dr. Ming Yang.
