When I called Dr. Xingning Zhao for an acupuncture appointment, I hoped she could help lower my blood pressure without medication.  She did that and so much more.  Dr. Zhao treats body, mind and spirit.  I have seen Dr. Zhao approximately twice a month for seven years and I have never felt better in my life.  I have lost over 30 pounds and I still have no need of medication for blood pressure.  I cannot say enough good things about being in the holistic health care of Dr. Xingning Zhao.

My wife and I have had acupuncture with our Chinese Medicine doctor, Dr. Xingning Zhao, for over 15 years. During those years she treated us for such conditions as sinus headaches, bronchitis, sciatica, neuropathy, arthritis,and bone injuries. Sometimes she dispenses some Chinese herbs to help our conditions. Dr. Zhao treats us with patience, honesty, and respect while she diagnoses our problems and provides the appropriate treatment. We try to have monthly maintenance sessions to help strengthen our immune systems and are grateful that we have such a practitioner that we can see for any problem that may crop up.


We have guided some of our friends to see Dr. Zhao for their health and pain problems and will continue to recommend her. Acupuncture promotes natural healing, and treats the underlying problem rather than just masking the problem. Good medical care should be a union of Western medicine with acupuncture.

I have been a patient of Dr. Zhao’s for about 11 years, and through acupuncture she has relieved many health issues for me. I became a believer in acupuncture healing when my wife, who was suffering from sciatica, and through the recommendation of a friend, visited Dr. Zhao to relieve her pain. On that afternoon, I was literally carrying my wife into the office, and about an hour latter, she was walking out on her own.


Since then, Dr. Zhao has relived me of allergy issues and sinus problems. Her treatments have strengthened my immune system to the point of no longer having to take allergy medications.


I have arthritis in several joints, most painful are my knees. Dr. Zhao has relieved the pain associated with my joints to a very tolerable level. Occasionally, I suffer from back issues, and again, she has given much relief in that area. With the arthritis, I have the double whammy, which is a skin irritation. Through acupuncture, again, Dr. Zhao has relieved the itch and burn, and presently, the irritation is gone!


I do realize that medications and physical therapy have their place in the healing process for the human body, but I highly recommend evaluating Dr. Zhao’s acupuncture as an alternative in helping your body achieve the total healing process.

Dr. Xingning Zhao has been my acupuncturist and Chinese Medicine Doctor for 10 years. Not only do I protect my immune system by monthly visits to Dr. Zhao's, but when I travel I carry with me her Chinese Medicine herb teas or pills to take care of digestive or respiratory issues that may occur. Chinese medicine does not interfere with any other Western Medicine treatment but enhances it. For me, Acupuncture has often replaced other more invasive treatments and kept me healthy, now well in my 70's. Dr. Zhao is a caring acupuncturist with a quick mind and diagnostic; she is a wonderful listener and guides you through your individual treatment with patience and an informed respect for the body's natural processes of healing.


If you are looking for Alternative Medicine, I believe Acupuncture practiced by this doctor could be a solution to unsolved physical issues. It works for me.
