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…
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 …
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 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 …
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.
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 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.
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.
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 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.
Latest from the Fountain of Youth
The lastest news from Dorothy Pang's blog and eZine "The Fountain of Youth"
- Hi there! How are you doing? I hope that you are feeling healthy and vibrant! Unfortunately, recently my little Benjamin came down with a case of the common cold. He had what he called, “The Biggest Goobers in the World”. If you find yourself with a case of the common cold, there are some foods that it is helpful to avoid, at least while you have excessive mucous. In the office, I use acupuncture to treat the common cold; this has a great efficacy rate as long as the cold has just started – it’s best when you get acupuncture when you’re just a little bit sniffly or feeling a little bit off.
However, once you have definitely caught a cold, acupuncture can help to relieve the symptoms and get you feeling better faster, letting you regain your normal level of energy and productivity faster. If the cold has taken hold, herbs can also be used to knock it out quickly. However… good luck getting a toddler to take yuck herbs! Haha. So Ben got needle-less acupuncture but it was a bit late. He caught the cold and so while he was suffering I modified his diet to minimize the following three mucous encouraging foods: Cold Foods, Dairy, and Sugar.
- Hello there! How are you? I hope that you are feeling healthy and well. It’s now late May, and soon swimsuit season will be upon us. Usually this isn’t something that I’m super concerned about, but I did have a baby last August, so I’ve seen that my body looks different now. For me personally, at this point, my weight is the same as pre-baby (yay, breastfeeding!), but the shape of my body is a little bit different.
Summer is also… wedding season! And, while that is wonderful, if you have a wedding to attend, that is a little extra pressure to look good, because you know there will be lots of people taking pictures! But anyhow, I recently had a very interesting question from a patient, and I think that it is worth discussing. He is a bit older, in his late 60’s, and I was suggesting that he start exercising in a very small way: 10 minutes of slow paced walking a day. He was perfectly willing to try it, as I had been able to help him manage some back, hip, and foot pain that had been keeping him from moving around much. The next week, he was really surprised at how much better he felt in general. He was surprised about the change from only ten minutes of exercise! (read more…)
Hello! How are you? I hope that you are doing well physically, emotionally, and psychologically! Did you know, it’s my goal to bring my patients to not only physical, but also emotional and psychological balance and wellness? I would define wellness in all three areas as perfect health.
Yes, sometimes it’s quite a task. For example, often someone will come in for neck pain, and after talking to them I find out that they also have lower back pain, anxiety, insomnia, frequent urination, and indigestion. Sometimes, there is a really long laundry list of symptoms that their body is complaining with.
So what do I do? I ask the patient to choose their #1 complaint, and then I try to see how many other complaints I can also treat in their session, along with the #1 complaint. Usually I can treat 3 complaints at once, sometimes more if they are related in a Chinese medicine way.
- Hello! How are you? I hope that you are feeling happy and healthy on this fine Spring day. I thought I’d do something a little different today and throw in a little personal information this week. You probably know by now that I carry Chinese herbal medicine in my acupuncture clinic. You might even know that I use them to treat a variety of physical and emotional complaints.
You might also wonder: Dorothy, when do you, the acupuncturist and herbalist, decide personally to take herbs yourself?
I thought this might be a really interesting answer for you to hear. I take herbs when I feel that it’s necessary. But – that might not be when YOU may think. I would like to be really real here with you and let you know that I am not perfectly healthy. J I have dry skin, not matter how much water I drink or lotion I use. I also have vision that is slightly less than 20/20. But you know what my MOST COMMON complaint that I treat with herbal medicine in myself is? Drumroll please….
- Hello! I hope that things are going smoothly for you lately. I like to explore seasonal wellness topics and lately I’ve been noticing that the sun is coming up earlier than before. Of course that happens every year in the Spring. So maybe it’s the inconsistent sleep schedule of taking care of little ones, but this year I’m feeling it. (I hate to blame anything on again. Yes, our organs slow down a bit but that’s why we should take good care of our selves!)
Sometimes I get this question: How much sleep do I need? The answer is not universal, it definitely depends. Some people DO need more sleep than others. However, most people need about 8-9 hours of sleep a night. Sleep is essential to healing and fertility. It’s essential to good health. A body in disrepair cannot function at it’s best.
But here’s something else to consider – that your sleep needs may vary with the season. It’s very possible that in the Winter time, your body wants more sleep than in the Summer time. I think it’s normal to feel more sluggish in the Winter, and then once Spring is really in the air, to generally feel more peppy. It’s nature. We have more sunshine. There is more food to eat, and it’s easier to find. These things make it easier to do more, and give us more reason to be awake.
