Dr Hu is AMAZING, I threw out my neck Saturday morning and could barely move it when I went in to see him. By the time I left his office my pain and mobility had already improved tremendously. I followed his instructions when I went home and by the next afternoon I was almost completely back to my old self. This is the 4th time I've had this injury and I have never experienced such a short recovery time. Even better, he also identified what was causing my problem and hopefully I won't need to come back again!
Dr. Hu is the BEST! My son, Hassan, plays football for Harvard-Westlake. A few weeks ago, he had a high ankle sprain. A friend of mine, whose son and daughter attend the same school, recommended Dr. Hu to me. Hassan saw him 3 times and by the fourth treatment, my son was running again. This type of recover was a miracle and I owe all to Dr. Hu.
I have been dealing with degenerative discs for the past 7 years with very little result. I started to do acupuncture with Dr. Hu and I am feeling much better. Dr. Yaofeng Hu genuinely takes the time to understand me and help me understand my symptoms and treatment. I am now understanding that I have some pinched never root that need to be released. Dr. Hu empowers me and guides me to start helping myself. His tui-na and acupuncture are very effective. After two weeks I can overcome my health problem and feel better. Being treated by Dr. Hu has been a wonderful experience! I really recommend.
Dr. Hu is fantastic! I have suffered from migraines for many years, and I have never taken well to traditional migraine medication. I decided to try acupuncture after hearing about how it helped people that I know with their migraines. I decided to try Dr. Hu based on the high recommendations that I've seen online, and I am so glad that I did. I was impressed from the start. Using his wealth of experience and expertise, he immediately pinpointed areas of my neck, shoulders and head that were incredibly stiff and painful that he suggested were exacerbating my migraines. I guess I had been living so long with the stiffness and stress that I didn't even know that they were in such bad shape. After he did tuina(Which is traditional Chinese therapeutic massage) and needle, I felt the endorphins kicking in, and I felt very relaxed. When I first started treatment, I still got 2 migraines, but each time that I did, Dr. Hu made time in his schedule to see me, and each time that I came in with a migraine, by the time the acupuncture treatment was over, the migraine was gone! I went twice a week for about 3 weeks or so, until my stiffness started to loosen up, which resulted in my migraines seeming to completely stop. Since then, I've been going about once a week, and I haven't had a single migraine in almost two months. Importantly, Dr. Hu has impressed me by always saying that his job is to heal you as opposed to just keeping you there for no reason. In fact, he says that I'm now well enough to stop going to treatment, and that the only reason to come back would be if I start feeling terribly stressed again. With his professionalism, his fantastic expertise, his calm demeanor (which is especially helpful the first couple of times you go, when you're still pretty nervous), his very clean acupuncture technique (disposable needles, sterile technique, and overall cleanliness), and his general approach (his focus on your overall health), he has made a lifetime customer out of me. If stress, pain, or migraines ever get me down, I know I have someone nearby that I can trust to help me get back to normal!
Never had a massage like this – I cannot fathom how much Dr. Hu has fixed my family physically. My father was suffering from severe neck pain which made even simple everyday activities unbearable. However, after going to Dr. Hu for several weeks his neck pain is virtually gone. He feels so much better he even compares himself to feeling like Superman. Dr. Hu has also helped me regain stability and motion in my shoulders, which were dislocated in the past. His magical needles and amazing massages always brighten my family's week! We could never wait for the next visit. I highly recommend Dr. Hu to anyone.
Saved my career! – In my line of work , I am consistently slaving away in front of a computer for almost all of my waking hours. When I began to feel a recurring tingling and numbness through my fingers, I checked it out and was diagnosed with carpal tunnel. My doctor told me that the only course of recovery without sacrificing my career is to perform surgery. At that point, I decided to seek out alternatives to avoid surgery and one of my colleagues recommended me to try acupuncture and see what Dr. Hu can do. After undergoing 10 treatments with him, my carpal tunnel symptoms disappeared! I still choose to see Dr. Hu once a month now just for maintenance and I'm reminded to write this review because today marks my 6-month anniversary of not exhibiting anymore carpal tunnel syndromes anymore! Thanks to his expertise, I'm able to avoid surgery and still continue to do my job without problems.
Tennis injury gone – A few years back, I injured my wrist during tennis at SC. Had to take the remaining of the season off, but never have I experienced such fast healing. Recently I went back due to back pains and once again the problem was gone quick and easy. I already recommend Dr. Hu to all my friends and family.
Recommended! – Good acupuncture, good candy in the waiting room. What else can you ask for?
Definately worth a visit! – If you're in the market for a great acupuncturist in the LA area, Chinese Acu-therapy Center is the one. He's friendly, intuitive, thorough, funny, and his treatments are simply the best I've ever experienced (with a track record of no less than 6 other acupuncturists). Not to mention the place is wonderfully clean. he also accepts many kinds of insurance which is another plus.
