Our Patients’ Experiences
I had a lot of lower back pain that did not respond to other treatment. My friend recommended acupuncture and I honestly didn’t think it was going to work. I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Jang and he was easy to talk, and answered all my questions in detail. My back pain level was 9 out of 10 and now 6 months later my pain lever is 0. Dr. Jang also helped me with stress and fatigue. I couldn’t be happier with my treatment; I owe it to him.
I’ve been going to see Dr. Lee weekly for three months for nerve pain. As an acupuncture newbie, Dr. Lee was able to calm any fears I may have had, and the experience has been nothing but great. Dr. Lee caught tension in my jaw before I was able to bring it up. Her knowledge, technique, and demeanor mean excellent results in a relaxed and calming atmosphere. I look forward to my visits every week.
I found acupuncture after falling at work and badly spraining my ankle. I found Dr. Jang because he has 17 years experience. As for Dr. Jang, I can’t say enough good things about him. He is warm and inviting, and makes you feel very much at ease. The intake exam didn’t only focus on my immediate ankle pain, but also explored other areas of my life where I might benefit from acupuncture. The treatment rooms are quiet and peaceful, and decorated so tastefully. During my treatment, Dr. Jang had me rotate me ankle to figure out the strongest pain point, then inserted a needle (I barely even felt!) then asked me to rotate my ankle again, I could hardly believe it, but my ankle pain on rotation had gone from a 8 to about a 3! From one needle! If you are considering acupuncture for pain of any kind, I highly recommend you this place!
This is my first time ever visiting an acupuncture clinic and definitely will be not the last one. Before I seeing Dr. Jang and Dr. Lee, I needed to see a chiropractor weekly for migraines and neck pain. I haven’t had a headache since I started seeing the, regularly and they have helped me in so many other areas. A very special place. Thank you
Pain is triggered by your nervous system; it is the way your brain alerts you that there is an energy imbalance the body. It can be constant, piercing, dull, localized, short-term, or manifest in some other way, such as mentally or emotionally. From the Chinese medicine perspective, pain can be a signal that there is blockage in an energy channel, and/or there may be an energy deficit. Pain can be very frustrating for anyone, since over-the-counter medications and other manual therapies may not provide enough relief. With acupuncture, Acupuncturists at Shanghai Chinese Medicine will unblock the energy stoppage in your body that is causing you so much pain. By carefully placing acupuncture needles along specific pathways, or meridians, on your body, your energy will begin to release and flow properly, which will begin the abatement of your pain and other symptoms. Endorphins and neurotransmitters released by acupuncture help to improve your pain from the very first visit. Ask Dr. Jang and Lee what you can expect from acupuncture based on your specific pain level and condition. Since everyone experiences pain in different ways, she will guide you through her recommended treatment plan only after meeting you and taking a detailed history of your health.

Gout & Arthritis
Acupuncture Offers Relief for Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis
Acupuncture works to relieve pain from both types of arthritis in similar ways. One thing acupuncture aims to do is it reestablish a balance of the energies, known as chi, and that runs through energy channels, known as meridians, in your body. Chinese herbs can be used to help with anti inflammatory efforts, and an overall sense of well-being can be achieved from the relaxation and the uptick in serotonin and endorphins that an acupuncture treatment can deliver.
Shanghai Chinese Medicine Center has a highly trained and experienced practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Dr. Jang and Dr. Lee. Call today to make an appointment and let them apply his healing arts to your arthritis
Acupuncture Offers Relief for Frozen Shoulder Sufferers
Acupuncture addresses energy imbalances in the meridians of energy, that are held by Chinese medicine as the channels of the life force Chi. Surgery or severe illness are sure ways for energy imbalances, and energy congestion points to occur. Acupuncture can set the Chi flowing again.
Acupuncture can relax muscles that are spamming or tight. Feel-good brain chemicals, such as serotonin and endorphins can be released by acupuncture treatment and can lead to an overall sense of well-being and an increase in energy.

What can I expect during an acupuncture session?
At Shanghai Chinese Medicine, your treatment begins with a detailed discussion regarding your pain symptoms, medical history, medications and supplements you take regularly, and other important factors related to your overall health and well-being.
Your acupuncturist then develops a treatment plan that may include acupuncture combined with detoxifying (cupping) treatments, herbal remedies, mild electrical stimulation, and other therapies known to enhance the benefits of acupuncture.
Sessions generally last about an hour. The needles used in acupuncture are very thin and cause little to no discomfort when placed by a skilled practitioner like those at Family Wellness. You can expect to feel very relaxed during and after the session or you may leave the office feeling quite energized.
Most individuals require several treatment sessions to experience optimal results from acupuncture for pain. Your acupuncturist will discuss what you can expect from your therapy before beginning your first session.
