It has been 2 months since I first saw Dr. Cong. I can clearly feel that my body is getting healthier and healthier, and my blood pressure has also increased from 150-160 at the beginning to 120-130 now. Dr. Cong is a very gentle and patient person who makes people feel very warm. Her medical skills make me feel the profoundness of traditional Chinese medicine.

They saved my life!I recently visited Huatuo Clinic and had an exceptional experience with Dr. Marco Feng. I suffered a severe back injury during a soccer game, leaving me unable to move or breathe properly. Dr. Feng and his team acted swiftly, providing me with immediate care and relief. Within just one hour, I was able to talk, breathe, and walk without assistance. Their prompt attention and expertise truly saved my life. If you're ever in need of treatment for muscle or nerve injuries, I highly recommend this clinic.

100% Super friendly staff. Everything from booking to insurance processing was perfectly smooth for my every trip there. I love how they have a parking space on the second level of the building and there's no need to pay for street parking. Shout out to Dr. Helen Wang, I went in to see her on a weekly basis. She's wonderful! Upon initial assessment, she pointed out the root causes to my issue and also mentioned a few more conditions which I had but didn't mention as I thought they were unrelated to the issue I wanted to fix, which was a pretty cool thing. And by following her instructions after treatments, I saw actual improvement to my conditions within weeks. I also like how she tells you, before her accupuncture treatment begins, about how your body will feel during the treatment; it might not seem much, but for someone who's a bit scared of needles, that really helps. Highly recommend(P.S. If you find this review helpful, please tell them Anna sent you. 😉

My wife has been recovering from a lot of issues than regular Doctors couldn’t figure it out What was wrong with her, they did answer our questions properly if her condition was asma or allergies. Then tired of their non sense explains. We did several trips to see the specialist, doctors visits. With no answer. On top of several prescriptions….Sick and tired of these non sense, we visit Huanto clinic. We are blessed to see Dr Helen, she is knowledgeable, passionate and thieving her best to heal every patient

I have been going to the NW location for many years now. I have seen many different students and each one has helped with many different things from moments anxiety, pain in the body and helped heal from injuries. Coming to see a student helps them put their learnings to hands on practice. And are highly qualified. They have a doctor to guide them or answer any questions. The front staff is friendly& helpful. This is a great place to come from any type of treatments. You’re in great hands when coming here 🙂

Dr Amanda was able to really help my insomnia through acupuncture. After a few treatments, I have been sleeping more solidly and waking up less during the night. I would recommend this place if you have sleeping problems. They will be able to help.

Can’t recommend this place enough. Being going here for acupuncture and moxibustion and it has been greatly improving my organ functionality. Especially the liver. I initially came in here due to frequently abdominal pain that could not be diagnosed with western medicine. Ever since receiving frequent treatments I no longer have abdominal pain, increase energy with more restful nights (with eliminations of night sweats), and decreased stress. Would recommend anyone to Dr. Yingying Cong.

Our Approach

Untreated pain can lead to various issues, including reduced mobility, loss of function, and increased risk of developing chronic pain. It can also contribute to the development or exacerbation of mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, and insomnia.

At the Huatuo Clinic Pain Clinic, we recognize the connection between pain and mental health, as well as the potential consequences of untreated pain. Our comprehensive approach to pain management includes:

    1. In-depth consultations and assessments to understand your pain history, physical health, emotional well-being, and the impact of pain on your mental health.
    2. Addressing the psychological aspects of pain through counseling, stress management techniques, and mindfulness practices, fostering resilience and improved emotional well-being.
    3. Acupuncture treatments to balance the body’s energy (Qi), reduce inflammation, and promote natural pain relief.
    4. Herbal medicine to support the body’s healing processes and provide relief from pain symptoms.
    5. Nutritional and lifestyle counseling to help you make choices that support pain management, overall health, and mental well-being.
    6. Complementary therapies, such as massage and exercise, to improve mobility, strengthen the body, and reduce the risk of complications from untreated pain.

How Does It Work

Studies have suggested that acupuncture and other Traditional Chinese Medicine techniques can help alleviate pain and improve function in patients by:

  1. Reducing inflammation: Acupuncture may help decrease inflammation in the affected tendons and promote healing.
  2. Stimulating blood flow: By increasing blood circulation in the area, acupuncture can facilitate healing and reduce pain.
  3. Modulating pain perception: Acupuncture may help modulate the perception of pain by influencing the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain-relieving chemicals, and other neurotransmitters.
