“My problems started eight years ago. I had pain in my back and left leg (L4 and L5 disc). I was taking some strong medicines which made problem with my stomach. I had so much pain that I could not move and sleep at night. At one point I didn’t know do I have more pain in my back or my stomach. I must admit that at first I didn’t believe that acupuncture can help me(or maybe it was because I am scared of needles) but my husband believes in Chinese tradition medicine so he made an appointment with Dr. Xu. I started taking treatments month and a half ago and so far I feel better,much better( without medication). I sleep good, without pain,I can walk normally and my energy is great. I drink his herbal tea and I love it (first two weeks that tea was nasty,but after that tea works good for my stomach). Dr. Xu is great doctor and he makes me laugh every time I have a treatment. I would highly recommend Dr. Mark Xu to anyone who is having any kind of problems.”

“Sixteen months after crushing a vertebra in a snowboarding mishap, I was in near constant pain, gobbling Ibuprofen like M&Ms. A veterinarian of my acquaintance, who has had good results using acupuncture on dogs (no placebo effect there!), suggested I try acupuncture. With no small degree of skepticism, I set up an appointment to see Dr. Xu. After the first treatment, the frequency and intensity of the pain was markedly reduced. After several more weeks of treatment, I feel much better; the pain is an occasional, minor annoyance. And I have even, almost, come to enjoy the taste of the herbal teas Dr. Xu prepares! As one who came to this branch of medicine with no serious expectation of positive results, I am surprised and pleased. I highly recommend Dr. Xu to anyone who suffers long-term pain that has resisted other treatments.”

I cannot begin to express the level of gratitude I have for the care and expertise of Dr. Xu. I came to Dr. Xu to see if he would be able to help with back pain. I had a painful back injury that required surgery about 8 years ago. Due to the physicality my profession, I still experience episodes of acute pain. Dr. Xu, as far as I’m concerned, works miracles! I’ll come to him in pain and within 2 or 3 sessions feel 110% better ( I leave smiling after the first visit, my back feels THAT much better). I would definitely recommend Dr. Xu, he’s a wonderful practitioner and a wonderful man.

“I have degenerative discs in the L4 and L5 area of my back. I was having terific pain. My orthopedic doctor could do nothing to improve my situation, except offer bone fusion, which they said only has a 50% chance of being successful. I started taking treatment from Mark in the early fall and started seeing gradual improvement shortly thereafter.. By that winter I was able to go snow skiing as I usually do. Since then I see Mark only if I feel a twinge. I can now engage in all activities that I was participating in before my back problems began. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone who is having back problems.”

I went to Xu Clinic when I was in severe back pain and could barely leave the bed. After I received daily treatment from Dr. Xu for one week, I started to be able to stand-up, Then I reduced to weekly treatment. Now I am having near normal life and continually receive the accupucture treatment. I highly recommend Xu Clinic.

What was your medical condition before you started treatment with Dr. Xu:

Herniated Disk, pressure on sciatic nerve. I could not walk, sit, stand or lay down to sleep without pain killers (loritabs 10 mg). I took 7 on my bad days and still could not go to sleep. There were 4 doctors and 2 of them were surgeons recommended operation that might work, but would definitely limit my mobility for the rest of my life. Without medical insurance the MRI would be $3 to $4,000 and the operation would run $ 25,000-$30,000 and might work.

Medications taken when began treatment by Dr. Xu:

10 mg Loritabs, 500 mg Naproxen, several others I can not pronounce.

Current Medications:

Less than 3 full weeks complete recovery. This in turn has raised the curiosity of a surgeon; he has scheduled me for a free MRI, CT, and scan to try to figure out what Dr. Xu has done….

Patient: Dee

What was your medical condition before you started treatment with Dr. Xu:

During this past summer I visited Dr. Xu office for nine visits. The traditional route in past years with doctors did not help. The important thing about the treatments was the how the entire body got healed. Energy imbalance ad related organ weakness as well as immune system needed to be fixed before the back could be healed. It is difficult to measure internal progress, but for the first time in a year, my hair was brilliant-very shiny. Also growth of new hair previously not possible was evident.There was no doubt the treatments went for beyond the obvious symptoms. More important, I believe it scratched off potentially more serious problems. My three months back-ache which prevailed me from during exercise and carrying groceries etc. By the end of three weeks of treatments Dr. Xu prescription for water and walking for 30 minutes a day, my body was strong enough to travel abroad. This was a great way to fix a physical problem.
