My name is Huang, I live in NY Chinatown. I am 32 years old and the mother of two boys. I have been suffering from dizziness for over 3 years, with difficulty walking, and not even able to consider working. My husband’s family thinks that I am only pretending dizziness as a way of avoiding work, but I have really been trying hard to find the cause, seeing a lot of doctors, and trying a treatment clinic for more than one year. However, not only did my condition not improve, but it got worse, and when walking I could not even lift my head up. Fortunately, a kind-hearted patient introduced me to Dr. Li, who determined that I have a cervical spinal problem – something which previous doctors did not identify, despite my complaining of neck stiffness and pain. After only two treatments from Dr. Li, I felt marked improvement in the dizziness, and after another three treatments I was able to hold my younger son for a prolonged period without feeling the intense shoulder pain I previously felt any time I held him for more than 10 minutes. Thus, with Dr. Li’s help, I recovered from all of these pains and disabilities, overcame the prejudices of my husband’s family, and resumed full-time employment. I highly recommend him to anyone.
My name is Ran. I am a 60-year old male, living in Virginia Beach, and working as a long-haul truck driver. I had lower back pain and sciatica for more than 6 months, was unable to work, and sometimes confined to a wheelchair. I tried a few acupuncture sessions with another practitioner, but my condition still did not improve. Then, I made a long drive to see Dr. Li, and after just one treatment I experienced a full recovery. Then two years after that, my wife accidently hurt her knee. She failed to realize any improvement after seeing a lot of doctors, so I took her to see Dr. Li. He immediately remembered me. I then I explained to him how I totally recovered from that one initial treatment, even without the added benefit of Chinese herbal medicine, which he had also recommended. Dr. Li’s needle technique is so much nicer than that of other acupuncturists who have treated me. Since my recovery, I have been driving long-haul trucks as usual. Dr. Li’s treatments are amazing !
My name is Li, I am 45 years old, and I live in Washington DC. I had been having chronic, severe headaches for three weeks, and initially sought treatment through massage and traditional Chinese medicine from a local Chinese herbalist. Then, when my condition did not improve, I found tried Western medicine from a family doctor. He prescribed drugs for me that relieved the pain, but each time as they wore off, the headaches fully returned. Later, when I asked that doctor about this, he just asked me how much supply of those drugs I wanted: a week’s supply, or a month’s supply. I was shocked, to learn that those drugs were just pain killers, and not even intended to solve the root cause of my headaches. Later, a friend introduced me to Dr. Li, who carefully diagnosed my cervical problems, and administered several acupuncture treatments that completely eliminated my headaches. Now, more than a year later, the headaches have not recurred.
I am Lin, a 52 year-old, living in Brooklyn NY. I started having very uncomfortable feelings, including chills, on the outside of my left thigh. Later, this feeling progressed to the soles of my feet, with my right foot feeling especially “thick”, with numbness of the middle two toes. At the suggestion of friends, I went to see Dr. Li. He evaluated that I had lumbar problems, and then after several of Dr. Li’s acupuncture treatments my symptoms disappeared completely.
I am Lin, a 34 year-old female living in Brooklyn NY. I had been unable to move due to lower back pain, and lying in bed for 3 days without even the energy to get up to go to the bathroom. I was very depressed. Then, through a chance conversation with one of our tenants, we learned that Dr. Li might be able to help. After my husband contacted Dr. Li, he agreed to make a house visit to evaluate my condition. That was followed by three acupuncture treatments, after the first of which I was able to get up from the bed. Then after two more sessions, I was totally recovered and able to take long walks without any pain. He is not only an excellent therapist, but also such a considerate human being. I only hope that every suffering, anxious patient can be so fortunate to find a doctor as good as Dr. Li.
My name is Chen. I am a 55 year-old female living in Brooklyn, NY. I have been suffering from a combination of symptoms, including dry eye syndrome, a burning feeling inside my chest, great difficulty breathing, very serious insomnia, and uterine prolapse. My daughter, who is an American doctor, told me that my dry eye syndrome can be managed, but not cured with Western medicine. With regard to my uterine prolapse, the Western medical approach would be surgery for severe cases. For these reasons, I felt that I needed to look for help from Chinese medicine, but I was afraid to consume traditional Chinese herbal products, and my previous experience with an acupuncture clinic was expensive and unsuccessful. Finally, on the recommendation of a friend, I saw Dr. Li, who suggested that due to the history and severity of my symptoms, I should receive acupuncture treatments every other day. After a week of these acupuncture treatments, my symptoms improved significantly, and after three more weeks of treatments, they were gone completely. Later, even my daughter began seeking treatment from Dr. Li for her cervical problem.
My name is Zhang. I am a 60 year-old female, living in Washington DC, and suffering from periarthritis. I have seen many doctors, but their treatments have all failed to improve my condition. It became difficult for me to even raise my hand to comb my hair, and I have had trouble sleeping at night. The pastor at my church urged me to pray for improvement, but my feeling was that in addition to prayer, I had to try to get better medical treatment. Then, I happened to meet Dr. Li’s wife at my church, and learned of his ability to help patients with my condition. I followed up by going to Dr. Li’s clinic and beginning daily acupuncture treatments. The first treatment brought some immediate improvement, then after one week my symptoms improved completely, and I was able to resume my normal work.
My name is Chen. I am a 30 year-old male living in Boston. I was a renovations worker, but my lower back pain led to my seeing many doctors, none of whom were able to help my symptoms improve. Then, upon hearing of Dr. Li’s ability to help others with my condition, I made specific arrangements to enable me to be treated regularly with acupuncture by Dr. Li. My symptoms improved significantly after the third treatment, and after one week they disappeared completely. I continued with an additional week of treatment to ensure there was no recurrence.
My name is Lin. I am a 42 year-old male living in Brooklyn NY. I am originally from Fujian Province in China, where my work as a merchant seaman led to injury to my waist and severe back pain. Afterward, I worked as a bus driver in Chinatown-Brooklyn, and my lower back pain persisted. I sought treatment from over 15 Chinese and Western medical doctors, but nothing helped. Then, after two months of twice-weekly acupuncture treatments from Dr. Li I fully recovered, and now – 5 years later – there has been no recurrence of lower back pain. I have not met any doctor with such superb medical skills as Dr. Li, combined with his patient and careful attention to my treatment.
Testimonial #10 Nick (click on video below this narrative)
I would like to share my story of recovering from severe injuries due to a bus accident over 2 years ago, with the help of Dr. Rusong Li. Afterward, the medical diagnosis determined that I had sustained multiple disk ruptures and herniations in my lower back and neck. The severity and location of these injuries would make surgical treatment extremely risky, and I was told that any such attempt would carry a 90 percent chance that I would never feel my legs again. As it was, I was having great difficulty walking even with a walker, because I could not lift my feet, and I was being recommended for a wheelchair. Matters were made worse by the fact that I have hypertension and diabetes, for which I have been receiving treatment for over 25 years. I had been taking 120 units of insulin per day, and even that was insufficient to bring my blood sugar under control. My medical doctor told me that my case was one of the toughest cases of diabetes he had ever tried to manage. I was being given multiple pain medications, including morphine and oxycontin, but I still had considerable residual pain. Besides dealing with the pain, I had persistent joint swelling, tightness in the chest and abdomen, loss of appetite, constipation, frequent insomnia, and no feeling in my toes. If my wife pinched one of them, I could not tell which one she was pinching. I was on total work disability, and those who knew me, such as my pastor and close friends, all thought that I would be gone within a year.
Then, several months ago, my wife heard about Dr. Li through a friend, and in desperation we decided to make the long trip to see what he could do for me. My first acupuncture session with him lasted about 4 hours, and incredibly, at the end of that session I was able to walk down the stairs on my own. Since then, my condition continued to improve. I received treatments from Dr. Li approximately twice a week over the next 2-3 months. At the present time, I can walk normally and have been able to eliminate most of my pain medications, except for a lower dose of oxycontin. I have also been able to bring my glucose under control with half the previous dosage of insulin, and now have full sensation in my toes. This all seems like a miracle to me, which is all the more impressive since my priest feels the same ! I realize that my story may be hard to believe, which is why I am offering to share my contact information and medical records with anyone who is seriously considering acupuncture. I am truly indebted to Dr. Li for his unique expertise, and compassionate manner. I do not want to downplay the importance of traditional Western medicine, since I continue to benefit from it. However if you have reached the limits of what it can do, as I did, I hope that you might take heart from my experience, and seek out an alternative practitioner as kind and effective as Dr. Rusong Li. If you want to contact me, just leave a note on the feedback page of this website, and it will be forwarded to me. I will then be happy to call you or to receive your call.
