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’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…
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…
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…
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 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…
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 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 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 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.

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…)
