Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Yu "The essence of Jing River Acupuncture awakens your self-awareness, allowing you to act from your center of truth. I have practiced both Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western medicine in China for more than 20 years. For my MS, MD and PHD degrees I focused on the neurology and gerontology, conducting research, treating patients, and teaching. I am proud that my research projects have been beneficial to many stroke victims and Parkinson's disease patients in China. I also treat many common health conditions such as joint pain, chronic neck and back pain and injuries, headaches, migraines, fibromyalgia, TMJ, insomnia, restless leg syndrome, digestive distress, women's health concerns, etc."

Patient Comments (1)

After returning from the Iraq War with a spinal injury that Western medicine could mend no more, I was fortunate to find Dr. Yu. He is the reason I walk without a walker or cane. Although my posture is not like that of a ballerina, it is now upright and I am pain free. Very kind and gentle man. ...more
