Acupuncture is a popular alternative treatment for many conditions. Acupuncture’s popularity is due to its effectiveness and treating the whole well-being of a person instead of using drugs to cope with the symptoms. Acupuncture is a treatment where acupuncture needles are inserted at specific points in the body to stimulate the flow of qi. This process results in the balancing of the body’s flow in qi and promotes natural healing. The process then treats the root problem in a natural way and without the side effects that other treatments have.

back pain review

Dr. Fu and his staff were very helpful, compassionate and professional when I came to their office with acute back pain. First and foremost, my back pain is gone!   I was so impressed with Dr. Fu’s throughness with my treatments. He was very attentive and responsive to my pain. My treatments were scheduled in accomodation with my work schedule. His office staff is so friendly and very helpful with insurance billing. I have been satisfied with other Acupuncturists, but now will only return to Dr. Fu for any other treatments. I highly recommend Dr. Fu to my family and friends.

back problem review

The most benefit I received from acupuncture was in the areas of my back and neck.  I used traditional methods (i.e. rest, ice, heat, rehab exercises) after the first car accident.  This was helping significantly but then the second car accident occurred.  Now these same treatments were having a reduced effect in resolving my pain.  After only a few weeks of acupuncture treatment my back pain was nearly gone and my neck pain was significantly reduced.

“Last month, my father (56) came to Dr. Fu because of a chronic back pain that persisted since he was around 30. When we finally decided to do something about his back pain instead of just letting him rest in bed for days for the pains to subside, I brought him to Dr. Fu.
