acupuncture houston txFrom L.D. lower back pain and a skin ulcer… 
I am a seventy year-old woman. I went to the Houston Acupuncture and Herb Clinic because of lower back pain and a skin ulcer that I've had for many years. In the past I had seen acupuncturists for over 20 years. I have seen lots of acupuncturists who only seemed to give me a black pill that only helped a little bit. 
I previously thought alternative medicine is always being slow to get result. Acupuncturist Wu, however, changed my mind. He is far more educated and really knows how to help people. Chinese medicine actually is very powerful, and the results are very fast too. It depends on who you see, how they prepare treatments, and whether or not they know what is the proper dosage and experiences, etc.  
In their clinics, every single formula comes from their knowledge. When I was in the patient room, Acupuncturist Wu discussed all my problems and medical history as he is formulating some herbs on my chart. He told me that the specific formula he made for me is a combination of individual herbs, not like the pills that are pre-made for all people. Wu explained that pre-made herbal formulae contain a lot of unnecessary ingredients that are not necessarily right for me. He obviously has a lot of training and experience. 
For many years from my past experiences, all the acupuncturists I saw previously gave me are the pre-made patterned herbs. Since I came to this clinic, I begin to realize the herb formulas have to make proper ingredients and percentage that can give tremendous effects to the body system. I have never seen any acupuncturist prepare my formula in front of me. He is the first one. 
My skin ulcer has been there for many years, with no medicine ever helping my skin to heal. It always has been an ulcer with pus and draining. Since I went to this clinic and saw Acupuncturist Wu, my ulcer is getting smaller with a lot less draining.  
It is healing up! 
I also had stomach problems. I am not able to eat anything spicy. I went to many doctors but found no help. After I went to see Acupuncturist Wu, my stomach now is 85% better. I can sleep well at night now - something that was not possible before. 
Recently my leg had been very weak, with me hardly able to stand up. After two treatments, I can walk just like a normal person. 
From S.R. having trouble with my back and my left leg… 
In 2000, I started having trouble with my back and my left leg. The pain was excruciating and rendered me a near cripple. I saw many doctors and hip specialists, back and spine specialists as well as a pain doctor. I was told there was not only nothing to be done, but that my condition of scoliosis would only get worse and more painful. The doctors were right about the pain, and I was soon taking Darvoset, Vicodin, etc. To some extent I was walking around in a daze, and was depressed as well. In desperation, I tried Jo-Mei Chiang. At first I thought the acupuncture was not working, but several treatments had me changing my mind. I still have some pain, but it is bearable and I am walking like a normal person. Hurrah!  

From E.H. severe back pain and muscle spasms… 
I came to Acupuncturist Wu with severe back pain and muscle spasms. A friend referred the clinic. The pain I was experiencing was horrible, similar to when I acupuncture houston txgave birth to my son. After just 30 minutes of treatment in the clinic, I felt immediate relief and was at least 60 % better. I am very appreciative of the treatment he provided for me.  
Additionally, I was relieved by his confidence. His smiles and his positive approach let me know that he knew what he was doing, so much so, I returned for more treatments. Knowing I needed extensive treatment; he even came into his office to help me on a Sunday morning. By the third day, my pain is now limited to a very small area. There is a dramatic decrease in pain, and at least an 80% improvement in the area. I feel so much better! Thank you very much.  

From C.C. severe back pain… 
I came to the clinic with severe back pain. The pain was so severe, I could barely walk in. Before coming to the acupuncture clinic, I went to my internist and got no relief. I then went to the chiropractor and still was limping badly. With one treatment, the pain is virtually gone and I am walking without a limp. I feel like a new person and am very grateful to the clinic for the procedures performed on me. I always feel better instantly after I have visited the Houston Acupuncture and Herb, L.P.  

I have very bad shoulder and neck pain…
I have very bad shoulder and neck pain. I also have trouble to sleep at night. When I sit up I feel dizziness and light headache. After the 30 minutes of acupuncture treatment, I feel immediately better. Two days later, I am 80% better. I am able to sleep at night. My shoulder tension is going away.

T. B. My rib, which I may have fractured…
My father is a dentist. He told me to see Dr. Wu at Houston Acupuncture and Herb Clinic. My first experience here was the first time I have ever been to an acupuncturist. I was pleasantly surprised at the result. My rib, which I may have fractured, hurt about 60% less and my overall well seeing increased as well. That means that I feel better about me.

From R.R. excruciating right hip and leg pain…
When I first came to see Jannie I was a mess. I had excruciating right hip and leg pain, which was progressively getting worse. The pain was so intense I could not sit down, bend over or drive. The only comfortable position was lying down. My wife had to help me into the clinic.  
Soon after having acupuncture and herb treatments at Houston Acupuncture and Herb Clinic, I was able to drive again. As I continue, the pain subsided and I was able to have full range of motion in my body. The care I have received and continue to receive at Houston Acupuncture and Herb, LP is exceptional.  
Jannie is a GREAT acupuncturist, very caring and knowledgeable. I have and will continue to refer others. Thank you so much for all you have done! 

B. C. I have started my menstruation at age 14, I have always had cramping.
Since I have started my menstruation at age 14, I have always had cramping. The cramping has become increasingly worse as I get older, and vary in the levels of pain – from medium to severe. The one thing I could rely on in life was that I was going to have cramping during my period. In the past, my remedy has included Ibuprofen, heating pad and sometimes bed rest. I came to Dr. Wu for an ovulation and miscarriage treatment twice a week. As the end of my first menstrual cycle drew near, I realized that I had not experienced any of the PMS cramping I always experience. The real testimony was during my menstrual cycle; I also did not experience any cramping at all. I did not take one Ibuprofen and did not use one heating pad. I am a believer in this treatment. Thank you Dr. Wu!

In an acupuncture clinic setting, pain is quite a common symptom, but it is sometimes very difficult to evaluate. Headache is found in and associated with many acute and chronic diseases. Pain can occur at every part of the body. Pain can also be caused by many different factors. When a person visits the acupuncture clinic, the doctor normally will ask the nature of pain, its onset, and duration, circumstances of its occurrence, location and radiation, severity, and any other related symptoms.
Various etiological and pathological factors may cause different natures and characters of pain during the clinical interview. The following types of pains are frequently seen in the acupuncture clinic.

Distending pain

The pain results in a bloated feeling. It indicates Qi stagnation. The up flaming of liver fire or hyperactivity of liver yang can cause the distending pain at the head and eyes. Distending pain in the chest and hypochondrium is due to the syndrome of stagnant Qi at the lungs, liver, stomach and intestines.

Stabbing pain

The pain is sharp like the feeling of a pinprick. It indicates the stasis of blood, specially appearing at the chest, hypochondrium, stomach, small abdomen, and junior abdomen.

Migrating pain

The pain is unsteady and migrates to all places. If the pain happens at the chest, hypochondrium, stomach, small abdomen, and junior abdomen, it is commonly due to stagnation of liver Qi. If the migrating pain occurs from the joints to joints, it is called the migrating arthralgia. It is often seen in the Bi syndrome.

Fixed pain

The pain is fixed and steady at one area. If the fixed pains happen at the chest, hypochondrium, stomach, small abdomen, and junior abdomen, it is due to blood stasis. If fixed pain happens at joints with steadiness, it is called fixed arthralgia.

Cold pain

The pain is accompanied with a cold feeling and can be relieved by warmth. This cold syndrome frequently occurs at the loin, abdomen, vertex of the head, and joints of the four limbs, it indicates the cold syndrome. Syndrome of excessive cold results from the cold evil, which attacks the Zang –Fu, meridians and collaterals. The syndrome of ‘deficiency-cold’ results from the deficiency of Yang Qi, which causes problems in the Zang-Fu and the body loses warmth.

Burning pain

The pain is accompanied with a burning sensation and one prefers a cold application. It indicates the heat syndrome that frequently happens at the pharynx and throat, mouth, tongue, hypochondrium, abdomen, and joints. It is due to the fire heat disturbing the meridians and collaterals. Excessive fire due to deficient Yin burns the tissues.

Colic pain

The pain is like a sharp knife twisting inside the body. It mainly lies in excessive evil blocking the Qi movement or the cold evil freezing the Qi movement.

Dull pain

The pain is mild with a lingering feeling. It is often seen in the head, abdomen, hypochondrium, and lumbar area. It indicates a deficient syndrome. It is due to the depletion of essence and blood. Or because the Zang-Fu and body suffers from malnutrition, it results in yang deficiency and a cold feeling.

Heavy pain

The pain is associated with a heavy sensation. It is felt in the head, four limbs, lower back and sometimes the whole body. It is due to obstruction of Qi movement and the damp pathogen staying in the tendons and muscles.

Aching pain

The pain is accompanied with aches and a feeling of discomfort. It is often seen in the four limbs and the lower back. It can be from the invasion of wind dampness and poor circulation of Qi and blood. Sometimes it is also caused by malnutrition, causing deficiency of Qi, blood, and kidney energy.

Hollow pain

The pain is accompanied with an empty sensation. It is seen in head, gastric, and junior abdomen areas. The pain usually corresponds to the relative organs. It indicates deficiency of Qi, blood, essence, and marrow.

Spastic pain

The pain is due to the spasm at Zang-Fu or the body. It is seen in the head and lower back, shoulder, neck, and abdomen areas. It is due to the obstruction of Qi and blood at the meridians and collaterals. It is more related to the liver organ because the liver controls the tendon.

Acupuncturists should ask the location of pain. From the location of the pain, the acupuncturist is then able to analyze and judge the location of lesions at the Zang-Fu or in the meridians and collaterals. The common locations of pain are as follows.

Lower back pain

It refers to the attack of the exopathogenic cold-dampness, exopathogenci damp-heat, trauma or kidney deficiency.
