“I came to Dr. Hu because I had anxiety. After my fourth treatment I began to feel an improvement. Dr. Hu is very friendly and professional. I have learned that it is a natural way of healing; it will not be hard for me to encourage anyone to seek for acupuncture.
“I had never even thought about acupuncture before. I knew nothing about the medical aspects or about the philosophy behind it, but I couldn't see how having needles stuck in me would have be so prescriptive for me. Then I was diagnosed with breast cancer and my friends James and Sabine Owens insisted I see Dr Cathryn Hu. They served as a messenger between the doctor and I. James contacted me everyday to see if I'd called her yet. At the time I had just been through breast cancer surgery and starting chemotherapy and I was already over whelmed. I did not even want to do chemotherapy! I was to sceduled to have weeks of radiation therapy along with additional drug therapies. I had already had enough on my hands without the complications of adding another doctor. But James kept insisting that acupuncture could help me, and finally, I called Dr. Hu.
By the time my friend Sabine took me to the Advanced Acupuncture office, I was in pretty bad shape. I wasn't sleeping, I was barely eating, the lining of my mouth had been painfully affected by the chemotherapy, and what I did eat immediately went through me without time to retain nutrients. My tongue had a thick white coating. I was dropping weight and getting weaker.
Dr. Hu had thoroughly examined me, looked over the medical reports I brought her, and told me I needed to continue the chemotherapy which gave me the best chance, but that acupuncture would help reduce the side effects. I was skeptical. However, that first treatment made me a believer. I returned home able to instantly sleep better, eat better, and I began retaining the nutrients from what I ate. I started having regular acupuncture treatments throughout difficult weeks of chemotherapy and radiation with far fewer side effects and far more energy.
Because of this experience, I want to share what I am learning about breast cancer and acupuncture with you. I want you to know that you don’t have to suffer alone.
I want to be the friend to you that James and Sabine were to me.
Dr.Hu has been instrumental in my survival and ultimate well being after a breast cancer diagnosis in 1997. Twelve days after surgery, I began regular acupuncture treatments with Dr.Hu that continued through chemotherapy and radiation. In addition, Dr.Hu prescribed packages of assorted herbs that I used to prepare medicinal tea. I am convinced that acupuncture and herbs helped me feel stronger throughout cancer treatment. In the years following chemotherapy and radiation, I have often dealt with a below-normal white blood cell count and fatigue. As a result, I need to focus on reducing stress as much as possible, pay attention to diet and exercise, and see Dr.Hu for acupuncture. With the addition of regular acupuncture treatment, blood tests have shown that my WBC count moved into the normal range. With regular acupuncture, I have more energy. Dr. Hu’s excellent care has made such a difference in my life.

Going in for acupuncture for the first time, I was very skeptical. I went in to attempt to treat neuropathy (nerve damage) in my hands and feet as a result of cancer treatments. However, after receiving two treatments (and with more to come) I've already seen a noticeable improvement in my condition. I can walk much much greater distances nearly pain-free and can already use my hands a bit more. And what is a man without his hands!? These hands put us on top of the food chain!
The facilities are very clean and very accommodating. You get a private room for treatment - the rooms are pleasantly lit and relaxing while you receive treatments. The waiting area is warmly lit and comfortable.. The staff so far have been incredibly friendly, including the doctors.
When I looked up acupuncturists in my 10-mile area, I got over 100 results (I suppose what do you expect in Arcadia?). Advanced Acupuncture treats a huge variety of problems, many, or possibly all of which are detailed on their site. I chose them based on what appeared to be a scientific, professional approach to acupuncture and was not disappointed.
So far, Advanced acupuncture has helped me deal with a crippling condition and made a believer out of a skeptic.
“I think their techniques are wonderful and amazing. It’s the only thing that has helped my ankle to heal all the way.

If I could only share my personal story and success, I would show people how happy and amazed I was with my results.”
