Acupuncture safely unlocks the bodyâ??s natural healing power. Traditional Chinese Medicine techniques can help almost everyone achieve optimum health.

Tang Acupuncture Clinic
Doctor Tang uses acupuncture, Chinese Herbs, massage, exercise, and dietary and lifestyle recommendations to treat the root cause of disease, balance disharmonies and alleviate symptoms.
Sophisticated and complex system of diagnostic methods are used and Dr. Tang takes into consideration the person as a whole, discerning the body's pattern of disharmony. The aim is not only to eliminate or alleviate symptoms, but more importantly treat the underlying cause, increase the ability to function and improve the quality of life.
How Does Acupuncture Work?
Qi circulates throughout the body along specific pathways called meridians. As long as this energy flows freely, health is maintained. Once the flow of energy is blocked, the system is disrupted and pain and illness can occur. Acupuncture works to restore normal functions by stimulating the meridians with fine needles inserted into specific points in the body. TCM encourages the body to make natural changes. TCM can treat acute and chronic conditions and can help in many situations where Western medicine may have limited solutions. TCM not only treats illness, but can also prevent disease and help build the immune system.
Doctor Tang is trained in understanding natural laws and using these to diagnose and assist the body, mind and spirit to move back into full health. The goal of acupuncture is to respond to what a person is asking for on their deepest level. This examines the relationship between a person’s physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
What to Expect from a Treatment
Doctor Tang begins with an interview about your health concerns. The interview includes a pulse and tongue diagnosis. You will lie down on a comfortable treatment table while very thin acupuncture needles are inserted into specific points on your body. You may feel the energy moving it is call Qi sensation. Doctor Tang may prepare an herbal prescription aimed specifically at treating your major complaints and harmonizing your condition. Some patients come for treatments several times a week while others only once a month. Most treatments last at least one hour.
I have known Dr Tang for over a year and always found her to be professional and personable. Her treatment, from initial diagnosis to follow on sessions, was always professional, delivering benefits that were well beyond my initial expectations. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a holistic alternative that was truly effective for me.-Acupuncture Patient, Santa Clara County
