Patient Testimonials

“I would like to take this time to thank my acupuncturist Mei Li at Oahu Acupuncture and Herbs for being one of the professionals that are currently using their expertise in medicine to save my life. Acupuncture has never been a part of my life and after seeing Mei for 6 months I can’t ever see my life without acupuncture. Mei Li is extremely caring and knowledgeable about Chinese Medicine and her treatment plans derive from her sincerity to heal her patients. Mei Li has been able to release stress and anxiety built up in my body over time that no other doctor could do; just by knowing the exact areas to treat and finding areas in my body that need attention like my kidneys or other organs affected by my stressful situation. I highly recommend Mei Li to anyone in need of a caring acupuncturist that will do exactly what you need to better your long term health and possibly save your life as she has mine. Thank you.”

“Mei is the best acupuncturist I have seen! I agree with her, that you must treat the whole body to cure any issue! For the last few weeks I could not raise my right arm to comb my hair. Mei, with a few needles reduced the pain in the shoulder and I could swing my arm freely. She has helped my constipation. I go 2 times a day now. I used to only go 1 time a day and some days not at all. Overall I feel better!”

A Case of Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy

An 88-year-old man came to see me for the first time in June 2017 for pain and tingling in his ankles and feet when lying down, so he could not sleep lying down — he had to sleep sitting up in a chair, which was extremely uncomfortable and deprived him of sleep. He was diagnosed by his doctor with diabetic peripheral neuropathy with gangrene in the toes, and was scheduled to have double amputation of his feet. He just wanted relief from the pain and tingling so that he could sleep lying down. I advised him to receive acupuncture 3 times a week until there is significant improvement, and then we would reduce the frequency of treatments. After two session of acupuncture, his symptoms were reduced by 50% and he was able to sleep lying down. After eight sessions, the pain and tingling vanished, and the gangrene in the toes also improved dramatically. His blood sugar levels also improved. He continued to see me regularly until eventually he was able to cancel his double amputation surgery. See pictures below for the timeline of treatment progress for the gangrene.
