You could be experiencing results like these . . .
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’ve had nothing but success while being treated at AcuSpa. Dorothy is amazing. She is professional, extremely knowledgeable with a very caring disposition. Dorothy treated me throughout my pregnancy; everything from morning sickness to preparing my body for birth/delivery. I was amazed after every session I always felt great and noticed a difference. This was my first experience with acupuncture. With these treatments my pregnancy was very easy…
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…
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 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.
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!
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!
My first adventure in Traditional Chinese Medicine and it is good so far. Dorothy is very professional and pleasant and knows exactly what to say and when. I met her at a community health fair and what went from an informational interest in acupuncture has transpired into a healing experience. I am looking forward to what happens next on this journey.
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…
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…

Gratitude for Good Health & Bone Broth Recipe
Hello there, and Happy Thanksgiving to you! I hope that you are taking a bit of time over this glorious four day weekend to rest and reconnect with yourself and your loved ones. Can I confess that once upon a time I wondered if maybe I should work on the Friday after Thanksgiving. And then I realized… this is one of the few four day weekends of the year. Just take a few days off!
So, I hope that you are doing the same, and spending some time relaxing this long weekend. (read more…)
- Fountain of Youth: Champagne Turkey
This year, I finally got smart and shared my champagne turkey recipe early, in case you wanted to try it for Thanksgiving. My tradition is to cook the turkey for Thanksgiving for my family. This really isn’t as big a deal as it is in other families because in my family, we not only have turkey, we usually also have prime rib, or honey ham in addition to turkey.
But in any case, Champagne Turkey because an instant family favorite. It’s fun to say, it’s a great moist bird, and lucky for me and you, it’s easy to make. Turkey is a pretty healthy meat, because it’s low in fat. But it’s important to keep balance in mind. As an energetic property, turkey is very warm. Chicken is warm in nature; it’s relatively balanced. But turkey is warmer than that, so too much can throw a body off balance, into too-warm territory. Also, baking is a warming way to cook things, so a roasted turkey skews pretty warm overall. So, I think it’s a good balance to have your turkey with some (boiled) mashed potatoes, and maybe a bit of side salad.
My recipe for champagne turkey has evolved over the years, (read more…)
- Fountain of Youth: Does Travel Make You Irregular?
I hope that you are doing well. With the holidays coming up, I’m guessing that some of you will have travel plans in your near future. I’m sorry if you got my ezine a bit early – last Friday. You see, as I was preparing for some travel, I hit the wrong button what was was supposed to go out today went out Friday for some folks. So I thought I would send out an extra issue, so that things are still on regular schedule.
Travel made my ezine irregular. Does it make you irregular too? I often hear about this and it’s in important thing to think about. Many body functions can go awry if you have constipation. So why does the body do that? I think there are three main reasons, and they all get wrapped together when we travel… (read more…)
Healthy Fall Traditions: Healthy Soups
Hello there! So what are some of your fall traditions? One of my favorite things about fall is homemade butternut squash soup. I just love it so much. I can’t really explain the obsession. Fall is squash season, and squashes benefit the Spleen in Chinese medicine.
I have to say that my body is built with a weak Spleen. I don’t naturally have the best digestion, so maybe that’s why I love butternut squash soup. It’s very easy to digest in Chinese medicine, and it benefits the digestive system. Now, of course there are different recipes. Generally I omit cream, because that makes it more difficult to digest. I love adding other spices that benefit the digestive system like cardamom, cinnamon and nutmeg. I’ll roast the squash and blend it in a blender with these spices and some water or chicken stock. It makes a wonderfully satisfying meal.
Orange foods generally benefit the Spleen, (read more…)
How to Prevent Sciatica and…
Does Acupuncture Treat Sciatica?
Hello there! I hope that you are feeling healthy, vibrant and well. Today I want to discuss sciatica and how to prevent it. Of course, acupuncture is a very effective treatment for sciatica. But prevention is of course, the best kind of medicine.
Let’s start with the basics: What is sciatica? Sciatica is an irritation of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve begins in the low back, travels through the booty (the gluts) and down the leg. The sciatic nerve has two branches – one goes down the back of the leg, and another branch goes down the side of the leg. Sciatica can result in different symptoms, pain is the most common but it can also cause numbness, tingling, or lack of sensation in the back, booty, hip or leg. (read more…)
