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…
The joints in my hands got stiff over the years of because of constant guitar playing so decided to try acupuncture. To my amazement, it worked and my hands are 90% less stiff. I am able now able to play for a long period of time. I am still going to Dr. Dorothy for treatment and it’s helping me a lot!
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…
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 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.
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 Pang Acupuncture is a great place to get treated for any ailment. It’s been my experience that Dorothy is a true professional. She’s punctual & her interaction with patients is personable. She really listens to your health problems & comes up with a treatment plan tailored for your own body.
As a person who’s terrified of needles, I would rather receive an acupuncture treatment by Dorothy than see my own physican. Why? Her treatments WO…
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!
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 …

Allergies, hypertension & high cholesterol, oh my!
How are you? Are you enjoying our Spring weather? I love to encourage my patients to spend time outside! It’s always great for stress relief. But, do you experience allergies? In that case, time outside may not be all good.
So what do allergies, high blood pressure and high cholesterol have in common? … (read more…)
What are the signs of an imbalanced Liver? Do you have an Angry Liver?
Hello! How are you doing lately? I hope that you are well, and that your body is adjusting well to the Spring season. We’ve recently had Spring Solstice, and so actually, around the solstice and equinox, during the seasonal change, the Spleen organ is most susceptible to damage. Now, we are pretty firmly rooted in Spring season proper, so we are in Liver time.
The Liver is the organ that correlates with the Spring season. In Chinese medicine, the Liver has more functions that in Western medicine. In Western medicine, it’s said that the liver organ functions to filter the blood of impurities. While yes, we do recognize that the liver deals with the blood in Chinese medicine, it also has many other jobs to do.
One of the most notable jobs of the Liver in the Chinese medicine viewpoint is that it handles and processes stress that the body feels. So, it is VERY common for me to see Liver imbalances in my patients. In fact, it’s almost guaranteed. It is incredibly rare for me to see people with a healthy, happy Liver and in fact, when the Liver is imbalances, we have a tendency towards feeling Anger. Anger and irritability are the emotional symptoms of an imbalanced Liver. Frustration is also another possible symptom.
To be truly healthy in Chinese medicine terms, that includes being emotionally healthy. With modern life in America tending to be fast paced, high demand and with instant demands, the Livers here tend to suffer a lot. High blood pressure and high cholesterol are other manifestations that I have seen of an imbalanced Liver. (I call this an Angry Liver.)
Do you wonder if perhaps you have an imbalanced Liver? This month, I’m including free Acu-Gprah readings with my acupuncture sessions so that you can SEE for yourself if your Liver is imbalanced. What is an Acu Graph? It’s a machine that reads your internal organs, like an X-Ray for your organs. It can show you how well or not well they are doing. If you have been a past patient, I invite you to call (650) 588-0888 to schedule an AcuGraph session free of charge, and I’ll extend this offer until May 15th. Let’s see if YOUR Liver could use some support!
To Your Health!
