Dorothy and I met years ago. Her maturity, focus, passion and kindness came through. I am more than confident in saying these attributes carry over into her very well established acupuncture office. In short, she rocks!
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.
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 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.
Dorothy took the time to ask me about my overall health from head to toe and helped to consult me on what would help me with several other ailments that have been on going for the past few years. After multiple treatments today I can move my shoulders now more than I’ve been able to since I can remember.
Dorothy is extremely knowledgeable about how to optimize health in the human body. She also really cares about her patients and takes the time to listen to what is happening in her client’s lives. Her surprisingly gentle touch coupled with the soothing eye pillows and calming music she provides all blend together to create an environment of relaxation and healing. I have had more energy, overall health, and gained more knowledge about my body and…
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 am a frequent traveler to the South Bay Area on business and tend to be very active. On a recent trip out I injured my wrist while snowboarding and had a nagging pain that wasn’t well treated by over the counter medication. A friend directed me towards Dorothy Pang after being previously treated by her. Giving acupuncture a chance was the best move I have made in a long time. Upon meeting her I was struck by her professionalism and knowledge. S…
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…
I was treated for about 3 months and feel great. I was petrified of needles and was very nervous for my first session. She explained the process and made me feel comfortable from the beginning. Office and rooms are clean and welcoming. Atmosphere is relaxing. She is friendly, observant, caring, thorough and understanding.
Latest from the Fountain of Youth
The lastest news from Dorothy Pang's blog and eZine "The Fountain of Youth"
- Hello! How are you doing? I hope that things are going well for you. Can you feel the energy of spring in the air? This is one of my favorite times of the year. Personally, I feel like Spring energy is the easiest to sense. It’s invigorating, and inspiring. In March, I really feel the need to BEGIN projects. I feel myself waking up again after my body has gone through the wind down process that it goes through every Winter. I feel like energy and health feel a renewal in the Spring, along with a possible boost in fertility!
What do I mean by, Spring time is Liver time? Well, according to our ancient Chinese medicine sages, there is an organ that resonates with each season. So, the organ that resonates, or makes itself most known in the Spring time, is the Liver organ. Spring is the time for growth. Spring energy is like a seed sprouting, it bursts outwards and upwards with bing intention.
- Hello! How is this week treating you? I hope that you are well.
This time of year can be a bit treacherous… what do I mean by that? Well, the cold and flu viruses are going around and it’s a common time for people to wonder: What can I do to boost my immune system? I don’t want to fall victim to those pesky viruses!
What I personally find to be most effective is Chinese herbal medicine. For thousands of years, people have been using it to treat viruses that are “just about” to take hold. If you feel those tell tale symptoms of an oncoming cold… you know what I mean… That’s the best time to get an acupuncture session and Chinese herbal medicine combination to make sure your immune system beats that pesky virus.
What symptoms are those that refer to an oncoming cold? Well, they will vary but generally I would say that they are… (read more…)
Gong hay fat choy to you! Happy New Year!
Today is Lunar new year, and it’s the beginning of the year of the Goat/Sheep/Ram. (It’s the same character in Chinese.) This particular year of the Ram is supposed to be a good one – there should be prosperity in general, isn’t that great news!
I also wanted to talk about a few traditions for Chinese New Year. Let’s dive on in!
1 – Eating/Displaying Mandarin Oranges
I love this tradition – I love Mandarins! I love the smell and the fact that they are easy to peel, and I love their bright color. The name in Chinese is loosely translated to “Golden Citrus”, so these are usually on display to symbolize the prosperity (incoming GOLD) that we would like to see come in the coming year.
2 – New Clothes/Red Clothes (read more…)
- Hello! Are you like me and still trudging through the winter months? Last week, I talked about the Kidneys in Chinese medicine and what they do and why they are so important. Are you ready for some simple, real life ways you can do something to help out your Kidneys during the rough winter? Here are three simple ideas that I suggest exploring that can help to preserve your long-term health, aid in retaining sexual health, and preserve fertility as well!
1. Have warm water, not ice water. There are different opinions about water and it’s temperature. However, the Chinese medicine model holds it to be very important to drink water that is not ice cold. Pretty much, never do that unless it’s really, really warm weather that you are sitting in. But in the winter, that is unlikely to happen. So, especially in the morning, it’s encouraged to drink warm or hot water. Sometimes I’ll have plain water. Sometimes I’ll add a bit of lemon. Sometimes I’ll have tea, and that’s a great way to add some antioxidants to your day. But, don’t drink cold water, especially in the morning. Choose a warm drink. (read more…)
- Hello! I hope that you are staying warm despite the winter cold. I think personally that winter is my least favorite season. I love the warmth. Do you know people that get bodily complaints when the weather is cold? Well, I’m taking good care of myself so that I don’t experience that, but I SO experience just plain old dislike of cold weather.
Winter is a really important season to take extra-good care of yourself? Why? … Well in Chinese medicine the winter season relates to our Kidney organs. The kidneys have a really important function in Chinese medicine, very different that in Western medicine. It’s arguably our most important organ in Chinese medicine, and one that I pay a lot of attention too, especially since I see a lot of infertility patients! Why? Well, in Chinese medicine our Kidneys are in charge of our sexual wellness and our long-term health! And who doesn’t want to take care of that???
