What Patients Say

Spinal Meningitis


Why try Acupuncture? Quite simply, because it works.  I came to Dr. Shao because traditional medicine could not offer anything but pills with bad side effects and no helpful results. Pain and suffering from Spinal Meningitis, injuries, Rheumatoid arthritis and related conditions. But mostly insomnia.

Since the age of 2, I was comatose with 106 degree fever from spinal meningitis.  Dr. Shao told me I presented a big challenge for him. Within a few treatments, I was sleeping seven hours a night with no harmful drugs.  Every other complaint I brought to Dr. Shao has been addressed. If I have a pain he gets rid of it and my quality of life has greatly improved.

How do I thank Dr Shao for helping me with all these ills? I recommend him to everyone I know who has pain, suffering and sleeplessness, and cannot or does not want to live on drugs the rest of their lives.
