I have been a patient of Dr. Zhong’s for 14 years. I originally saw her for carpel tunnel symptoms. Thanks to her treatment I avoided surgery. She addresses the root of the problem. Dr. Zhong is always expanding her knowledge of acupuncture techniques. She also makes exceptional customized herbal medicine. Her strong Qi energy is incomparable. When I get acupuncture, cupping and massage I leave feeling rejuvenated.


She and her staff are welcoming and truly care about the patient. I feel lucky to have Dr. Zhong in my life. She is the “Michelin 3 Stars” of acupuncturists.

When I first came to see Dr. Zhong I had been in a serious car accident. I had seen 14 other doctors, chiropractors, neurolgists, orthopedists and massage therapists yet she was the only one who was finally able to cure the severe and excruciating pain that I had in my neck, head, shoulders and back and arms- it was incredible! She has an innate sense and knowledge of the body. She totally restored my body. Since then I continue to see her as my only doctor as does my entire family - she is truly remarkable

I had back pain for two years. The pain was so severe that it kept me bedridden for two weeks. I chose acupuncture instead of undergoing surgery. After 5 sessions with Dr. Zhong, my pain disappeared. Dr. Zhong's acupuncture technique is wonderful!

I had foot pain for seven years. None of the many medications I took improved my condition. I spent many sleepless nights, particularly when the pain was severe. A few treatments by Dr. Zhong later, my pain is gone. Dr. Zhong and acupuncture saved my foot!
