I am terrified of needles. I have been told that I should go to an acupuncture clinic for 4 years, and ignored all advice because of my fear of needles. I finally mustered up the nerve to go and it was the best thing I could have done for myself. I can’t wait to go back for another treatment next week. Dorothy was professional and I didn’t feel a thing when she was doing the treatment, which was my biggest fear. She sat and talked with me about t…
Dorothy is a life saver! I have had problems with sleeping and stress and after just a few treatments I was feeling like myself again. Dorothy is very professional and her office is very comfortable. She is organized and gives you lots of personal attention.
I went to AcuSpa for hand pain and she ended up treating my IBS as well! The experience was calm and peaceful. I loved how each treatment room had a different elemental feel. She was very professional and knowledgeable of how the body heals itself. I would definitely recommend her to others.
Dr. Pang is so wonderful. Not only does she make you feel at ease and comfortable, but she really is sincere in her concern and willingness to help you to feel better. Not only that, but she listens to you. She doesn’t rush me like I’ve had Doctors do before and I already feel like I can trust her. So far, I’ve gone twice and am already feeling better than I was from a potential pinched nerve I had, which caused numbing, tingling and pain in my …
I’ve had several treatments for acid reflux from Ms. Pang and I’m a very satisfied customer. At first I was skeptical of the benefits of acupuncture however Ms. Pang provided me with acid reflux relief as effective as medication. The whole process was very relaxing (quite a surprise as I am really not fond of needles) and Ms. Pang was happy to answer all of my questions about the treatment, acupuncture, and the philosophy of traditional Chinese m…
I went to see Dorothy because of knee pains (I refused to take any medication for it). At the rate my knees were hurting I figured I’d be able to run only for 3-4 more months which would have been disastrous as I am battling osteoporosis and need to do weight bearing exercises (not to mention that I walk up and down 3 flights of stairs daily). After over a month of treatment, my knees are about 90% painless and it looks like I will be able to con…
Dr. Pang has been part of my team of alternative health providers. I fell in love with the princess crown treatment. I always said that that’s the main reason why I can deal with difficult situations in my life. I have refer my friends and clients to her because her knowledge and professionalism.
I have had the privilege of having Dorothy as my acupuncturist for a couple years now. I have been under Dorothy’s care for several different conditions, including migraines, stress, a thyroid condition, and low energy. The treatments really help, and my migraines have gotten so much better. She is extremely knowledgeable in her field. As a caregiver, Dorothy is very conscientious, competent, and efficient. She is dedicated to every task she unde…
I have been complaining to Kaiser about pain in my right knee and right shoulder for the last 6 months. It was an off and on pain at first, but after my back spasm in April, the pain was constant.
I’ve done it all—Advil, Tiger Balm, massages and physical therapy. I was still in pain. Then I saw Dorothy on Yelp and I had to try it.
After experiencing it, I am now a firm believer of acupuncture. Who would have known that sticking needles in …
I am basking now in the afterglow of treatment number two. I feel light and tingly and energized. I am truly frightened of needles, but Dorothy’s touch is gentle, and the space she’s created is serene. After my first treatment, my partner and I could already see a difference in my face.

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope that you have blocked out some time to slow down and enjoy a little quiet time. For me, Thanksgiving Thursday is the day I get up and roast the champagne turkey. And that’s all I do. But I do make sure to save the turkey bits that are not eaten to make turkey bone broth, and I usually do this on Thanksgiving Saturday.
I have to admit, especially since I’ve started making champagne turkey, I think that bone broth is my favorite part of Thanksgiving. The flavor is amazing, and it is especially amazing when there is a bottle of champagne in there! So here’s my easy post-Thanksgiving easy bone broth recipe:
How are you doing today? I’m preparing for some Thanksgiving traditions this week. I traditionally make two champagne turkeys: one for friends’ Thanksgiving and one for family on actual Thanksgiving. Everyone is always intrigued by this phrase “Champagne Turkey”. Well let me tell you it’s delicious. The champagne keeps the turkey moist and it also makes for delicious soup from the carcass later on. Also you’re not wasting anything this way!
I hate to be a tease by leaving out the recipe, but there are a few recipes for champagne turkey out there if you just to a quick web search. I tend to do a search and create my own hybrid recipe from the top 2-3 that I like. Making a champagne turkey is no more trouble than making a regular bird and the leftover soup is a LOT more tasty. Basically you pour a bottle of champagne into the cavity and the pan and then roast the bird. (This is in addition to some chopped veggies and spices.) It does mean that dressing is cooked separately. I think it would make for really soggy stuffing.
I hope that you are doing well. How are you feeling about September coming back around again? Traditionally, for me, I like to do some goal setting in September. I know that most people do that in January, but with the cold winter weather, I find it tough to find the energy to devote to a new project. But with September, I think about the beginning of a new school year, and the weather is nice enough to be pleasant and accommodating.
I hope that you are doing well. And if you aren’t… we need to talk! ☺ Ok, pardon me for being a little cheeky, maybe I’m feeling a bit cocky now that I’m a part of the grown up world again. It feels so good to be able to get out of the house and put my clinical skills to good work again. And, I said it before, but I’ll say it again, I MISSED YOU!!! You know I love my clients and look forward to hearing how you are doing, in health but also in life in general. It’s been nice to catch up.
So, I thought I would write about something I encountered while on maternity leave – blood deficiency. One of the possible Western medicine diagnoses for blood deficiency (but by far, NOT the only one) is anemia.
You see, one day,a couple of days after having Katerina, I looked in the mirror and noticed how incredibly pale my lips were. I remember thinking to myself, hmm… I have never seen my lips so pale! And low and behold, a few days later, my doctor tells me that I am very anemic from the birth, even more anemic than I was after the last time. (Oh, those babies, they can really take it out of you!)
So, one of the signs of what we call blood deficiency in Chinese medicine is pale lips. This is a possible symptom, along with many others like pale nail beds, pale tongue, scanty periods, all the way up to infertility. Actually, blood deficiency is a really common background for infertility in my practice. Women tend to overwork and not eat right (“Eat right” has a very different definition in Chinese medicine if you have blood deficiency, vs. the typical things we think about when we say “eat right”.) And slowly, blood deficiency develops.
So, you may wonder what I did about that. Well, definitely dietary modifications. And I did follow the Western doctor’s recommendation of taking more iron along with my prenatal vitamins. I follow advice as long as it makes sense to me, whether it’s Traditional Chinese medicine or Western medical advice. But the best way to build blood? Hands down, it’s Chinese herbal medicine. I don’t think it’s a problem to take while breastfeeding, but I let my clients know what my opinion is on that matter, then I let them choose. Also, breastmilk in Chinese Medicine is said to be made of “blood”, so it’s still a good idea to keep your blood stores up even if you don’t have anemia or a diagnosis of blood deficiency.
And lastly, blood deficiency usually took a long time to happen and it takes a long time to rebuild the lost blood. Sometimes blood deficiency can come on quickly, but that’s usually because of a major accident or surgery, something that causes a lot of bleeding all at once.
So if you need some inspiration to take better care of yourself, please know that I’m there with you right now. I’m working on getting rest, eating to rebuild myself, and taking supplements so that I can not only feel back to my old self soon, but also safeguard my future health.

I’ve had the month of August off, because of this little girl! Katerina was born on August 3, and weighed 8 lbs, 13 oz. She was a BIG newborn! It’s been really nice to have a month to bond with her, but I’m missing all of YOU, my grown up clients!
