Rotator Cuff Tear | Supraspinatus Muscle Injury | Spinal Disk Injury | Sleep Deprivation | Pain When Walking | Lower Back Pain | Weight Problems

I would like to tell you my story regarding the health aspects of acupuncture. A few years ago, I fell and suffered a partial ear of the rotator cuff tendon specifically the tendon that attaches the supraspinatus muscle to the head of the humerus. I was also having persistent pain due to a spinal disk injury. The pain was affecting my ability to function and sleep. After a consultation with Dr. Gong, I began a series of treatments. The recurring pain diminished quickly and I was able to sleep again. before Dr. Gong’s treatment, I was not able to sleep more than tree hour without having to get out of bed and either walk or try to find relief in sitting in a recliner. Dr. Gong’s expertise cause a cessation of pain in both my shoulder and lower back. I am back seeing Dr. Gong again. My shoulder did not heal properly, and while working out, a weight got out of my control and  I tried to “save” the exercise. The stress of that accident caused a complete tear of the tendon in my shoulder. I am now awaiting surgery, but have been plagued with pain so intense that I could sleep no more than one hour without waking. I did not want to go back to pharmaceuticals, so I again started appointments with Dr. Gong. After two treatments, I was awakened only once during the night, but that is because I am an older man. (71 years). I highly recommend acupuncture as a way of managing pain. I really appreciate that acupuncture does not require medication, but works with the body’s own resources and I am so thankful that I was fortunate to find someone with Dr. Gong’s ability and education. Thanks you, Dr. Gong

Hand Tremors (Shaking) | Diabetic Neuropathy

Let me start by saying if you’re worried about if it “hurts” getting acupuncture, STOP; a mosquito bite is more painful.

I’ve been treated by Dr. Gong for several years for several things and everything she’s done has been helpful.

  • I have a problem with a shaking right thumb and it’s all but gone because of acupuncture.
  • I have a slight problem with diabetic neuropathy and her treatments have helped. This is an ongoing process due to the nature of the problem.
  • I’ve had hip replacement surgery and acupuncture has been helpful to reduce the “ache.” Of course, I also have my own physical workout regimen.
  • Dr. Gong has implemented a weight loss program, which along with diet and exercise, has helped me lose about 9 pounds over a 30 day period.

I believe the most important thing is that Dr. Gong LISTENS to what you have to say. She discusses your problem and then does an examination using several different oriental techniques before doing any treatment.

All in all, Dr. Gong is a thorough practitioner in the field of acupuncture.

Carpal Tunnel | Numbness

I have suffered from carpal tunnel syndrome for a few years now. My wrist as well as my entire arm was getting numb and painful fro working long hours on the computer. I decided to give acupuncture a shot. I started seeing results after the second session. After about 2 months of treatment, my wrist and arm is 70-80% symptom free.

Sciatic Nerve Pain | Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms | Hot Flashes

Acupuncture Works! I was hesitant to try it, but now I am grateful that I did. My sciatic nerve started acting up about 4 months ago, and I made a appointment with Dr. Sufen Gong and started treatment. Within 5 treatments the pain was down to a low dull pain instead of a sharp shooting pain that would buckle my knee. I also asked about acupuncture for my MS symptoms she was very positive that acupuncture will also be beneficial. We will beginning treatments for that next! She also suggest a supplement that helps controlling my hot flashes, I am so happy that I made that call, thank you Dr. Gong.

Wrist Pain | Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) | Shoulder Socket Pain | Swelling | Joint Flexibility | Sinus Infection

I went to Dr. Sufen Gong when I was in extreme pain after surgery from a broken wrist. Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS previously know as Reflex Sympathetic Distrophy – RSD) had set in within two days after the placement of temporary pins and my surgeon never recognized it, although my primary care doctor saw it immediately, (when I saw her over two months later) as did the surgeon who I was sent to for the second opinion. My entire right arm and shoulder socket felt like it was on fire along being swollen to double or triple it’s normal size. Within a couple of visits she helped reduce the pain and swelling. I am off pain medication and have greatly increased flexibility even though both my primary care doctor and the surgeon I kept after getting the second option told me I’d be on gabapentin or neurontin the rest of my life. Neither of them thought I would regain the degree of flexibility I have, so I’ve been congratulated on my attitude and heard work. Dr. Gong made my recovery possible. The money involved is insignificant compared to the pain and stiffness she has rescued me from. She also treated me, and gave me immediate relief when I had a sinus infection; all in conjunction with my regular treatment. I highly recommend Dr. Sufen Gong!!

Chronic IBS | Diarrhea | Headaches & Migraines

I’ve had chronic IBS, diarrhea, headaches and trouble sleeping for twenty years. After six months of treatment, my bowel movements are normal, my headaches mostly gone. I am even sleeping better.

I was skeptical at first, but it worked so well on my chronic problems with no drugs or side effects.

Gong acupuncture has improved my life so much. Thank you.

Chronic Fatigue | Anxiety | Depression | Chronic Cough

Prior to my appointments with Dr. Gong, I was feeling chronically fatigued needing a long nap on a daily basis. I had no energy, was experiencing anxiety and depression. Was taking anti-depressant for over a year with some good results but wanting to eliminate that from my daily routine. Experienced a chronic cough and blowing my nose all throughout the spring months. For year, have had trouble sleeping which contributed my ongoing fatigue.

Since my treatments, I felt an enormous change in my energy level almost immediately… no more afternoon naps. I’m feeling more calm and have stopped taking my anti-depressant. My cough has disappeared and no more blowing my nose constantly. And, have been sleeping much better. I feel, for the first time in a long time, a renewed sense of well-being and good health. Never being one to run to a medical doctor, I truly believe in the benefits of acupuncture and will continue to include this type of treatment in my ongoing health protocol.

Lumbar Spine Pain | Stiffness | Neck Pain | Frozen Shoulder

I have had 2 surgeries on my lumbar spine. After a few yrs, pain and stiffness showed up again. I have learned to live with the pain, but quite uncomfortably. Also, for 5 yrs I have had severe, constant neck pain. This really altered my ability to function, and the chronic pain exhausted me. My neck disorder lead to a frozen shoulder. It also made sleeping difficulties due to numb fingers. Going to work was a daily, horrifying experience because I could concentrate on nothing but pain.

I went to PT, chiro tx and massage therapy, with minimal, short-lived relief. I have taken countless prescription drugs and tons of ibuprofen, all the time wondering how these drugs are damaging my organs.

Someone familiar with Dr. Gong’s expertise, strongly suggested that I see her. It took me a few weeks to convince myself to call her. I knew nothing about acupuncture, and I thought it was a bunch of hippie stuff; my imagination lead me to believe that I would be way out of my comfort zone. Being that pain had overtaken my life, I finally called Dr. Gong, and she readily saw me.

Wow, did I ever make the right decision! Dr. Gong is kind, gentle and sincere. She has an admirable, quiet confidence, and right away I knew that I was in capable hands. Oh by the way, she actually listens to me. Of course I wanted immediate relief after a couple of sessions, but Dr. Gong advised me to be patient, and she reassured me that I would get better. So after some more treatment, I am feeling more flexible, and what is more incredible, I am now noticing that I go through portions of time with no neck or back pain. This is a huge deal for me. My shoulder pain has decreased; my range of motion has increased; my finger and hand pain have lessened considerably. I have more energy. I feel like I am being cleansed of toxins.

I am still in the middle of treatment, and at this point the improvement is astonishing. It does not seem real. Dr. Gong treats multiple medical conditions, using various methods. I plan to continue with her until all of my impairments are taken care of. What an unexpected blessing it is, to have crossed paths with her. I, this former skeptic, urge everyone to call her, as she is truly superior in her field. Dr. Gong, I am forever indebted to you.
