The following testimonials were
provided by patients of Dr. Peng.
"I came to Dr. Linda
Peng's Acupuncture clinic specifically for treatment of migraines,
associated difficulties with sleeping -- lots of dreams leaving me very
tired in the mornings, and digestion problems. While I had heard of
Acupuncture, I had never considered trying it. I decided to try it after
talking to my Dad who had used acupuncture to help with a back problem he
had and that it had helped him a lot. I have been treated for migraines
for about 8 years and while I have medications to treat the migraine
attack, I haven't been successful in the prevention of migraines. After a
discussion of my prior medical history and current medicines I was taking,
Rx and over-the counter, Dr Peng discussed with me how acupuncture worked
and also started me on a herbal medicine program. Initially, my treatments
were twice weekly for a month, but I now go once weekly. I have been
seeing Dr. Peng for two months.
I have found the treatments to be
relaxing and Dr. Peng's manner to be sensitive. For the most part, the
treatments are not painful other than slight sensation when the needles
enter the skin. Dr. Peng is careful to monitor the electric stimulation of
the needles so that she is able to avoid pain if the stimulation is too
high. The massages that are included in the treatment are very helpful
with stress reduction. Generally, when I leave the sessions, I am very
calm and relaxed.
So far, I have improved my sleeping and I am not
as tired in the morning as I have been I have been successful in reducing
my migraines from 10-15 months to about 4-6 months.
I would and
have recommended this treatment to others."
"I am a 2x breast cancer survivor, and underwent 10
months of chemotherapy. The treatment caused bone loss and resulted in an
early menopause. As a side effect I have developed oesteoarthritis.
My husband had bone cancer, and felt relief only from acupuncture,
which was recommended by his doctors. He also took herbal medicine for
strength throughout his battle. His experience convinced me that
alternative medicine and acupuncture for pain is very successful.
Dr. Peng's treatment has been painless with a few tiny needles
placed inside my ear. There have been no side effects only a small
sensation of pressure. This treatment has given me almost complete relief.
I danced around the house with my 5-year grandchild and felt fine.
You have been very caring and have listened carefully to my health
needs. I highly recommend your services to other cancer patients and
anyone who needs pain relief.
Thank you, we need more doctors like
you who care about their patients."
"The nature of my condition was
that I felt very tired all the time, and it was affecting my school work
and social activities. It affected my family primarily because I was never
able to function properly at home. Another condition I experienced was a
lot of stress due to the amount of school work I received and, therefore,
I became very tense. For a period of time I had a high degree of
unhappiness most of the time. I was never happy at home, and I couldn't
explain why. There was no definite reason to this state of unhappiness
My western doctor led me to try Traditional Chinese
Medicine. I went to the western doctor initially with my fatigue condition
because it was beginning to interfere with my schoolwork. I was checked
for anemia as well as all other types of blood problems such as diabetes;
however, each test came out negative to any kind of medical problem. My
western doctor recommended trying acupuncture. She did not go into a lot
of detail on how acupuncture or herbal medicine worked, but I already
My experience in receiving the treatment from Dr. Peng was
phenomenal. I had never experienced anything like it. The first time I
went, I was very apprehensive and tense about the procedure. I went into
the clinic thinking it was going to feel like multiple shots over my body,
but it wasn't like that. For someone who can't stand shots, I was very
calm and soothed by the tiny needles. Dr. Linda seemed to know
exactly what she was doing from the very start. I had gone to a
different acupuncture doctor a week prior to starting Dr. Linda's
treatment, but I felt uneasy with that doctor's method of treatment, the
treatment was rushed and without ease and there was little explanation.
Soon after as I experience my first treatment of acupuncture by Dr. Linda,
I was so thrilled and could see a dramatic comparison between her and the
doctor I had gone to before. Dr. Linda proved to be a much better doctor
and friend. As I continuously went for treatments, I noticed it to be less
painful each time and more relaxing. She talks to her patients, which is
really important because it gains the patient's trust. Her massages were
also very, very good and relaxing. It felt so good and eased every muscle
in my body.
The condition definitely improved. I could see results
appearing within the first session. It was remarkable and fantastic. My
mom was very happy and said I had become the same happy daughter she knew
I would most certainly recommend this type of treatment to
others because it is like no other. Western medical doctors can prescribe
antibiotics and perform surgeries, but Chinese medicine seems to make the
entire person feel relaxed and at ease."
"I have had knee pains for quite a
while. Soon after that, my knee joints were swollen and my left heel also
was painful. I visited several doctors, but none of them could remove
these pains 100%. So, my friend referred me to see Dr.Peng for Chinese
acupuncture. When I went to Dr Peng’s office and saw these tiny needles,
honestly speaking, I suspected whether they could relieve my pain. I just
thought to make a try. Can you believe that my pain was gone 50% after
this simple try! That was a real miracle! I was so happy that my pains
were totally removed 100% after 5 acupuncture treatments and the swollen
joints were back to normal status. This is why I am posting and sharing my
treatment experiences with you. If you have same problems like mine, don’t
hesitate to ask Dr Peng’s help. She is not only excels at acupuncture
skills but also very nice to each patient. "
"I developed peripheral
neuropathy over ~ the past 5-7 years. Peripheral neuropathy is a
non-specific disease indicated by functional disturbance or pathological
changes in the peripheral nervous system. The condition is manifest by
gradual loss of sensory perception in the extremities, with the soles and
toes of the feet generally the first to be affected. Symptoms include
“Numb Soles and Aching Toes,” which is also the title of a recent book on
the subject of “living with your peripheral neuropathy.” The condition is
often associated with changes in (degeneration of) the myelin coating
surrounding nerve bundles, and a result of immune disease, often a side
effect of diabetes and other conditions. During earlier stages, the
affected person begins to notice numbness and tingling in the toes and
soles of the feet. There are no specific cures to the condition, and
treatments are aimed at identifying and removing the causes of the
symptoms, and helping patients manage or live with their pain, which
varies from uncomfortable to unbearable. EMG tests done in 1999 revealed
my condition to be relatively advanced.
I met with a well-known
western neurologist at St. Luke’s Hospital (Houston Medical Complex)
without any positive result or further understanding. Extensive testing
ruled out all of the common causes of the condition. The doctor
recommended taking tricyclics similar to nerve blockers used by epileptics
and these were effective at reducing the pain. I brought up the idea of
trying Traditional Chinese Medicine and the doctor strongly encouraged
this as the next step (his next step was a spinal tap). Dr. Peng initially
gave me a thorough examination paying special attention to my pulse (depth
and strength, in addition to the usual measurement of rate of heart beat).
I received acupuncture and herbal medicine, which together were targeted
to balancing my system and improving circulation in the lower extremities.
The herbal medicine (a cocktail of 7-8 imported Chinese herbs) had
immediate effect – my hands and feet really warmed up and turned red
within a few minutes. The acupuncture treatments extended more than 6
months. The acupuncture treatment was not unpleasant once I got used to it
-- the idea of being needled is much scarier than the actual fact, and Dr.
Peng always communicated very well about the procedure. The treatments
resulted in short-term relief and some longer-term improvement. I
recommend TCM as an alternative treatment for this type of neurological
"I had sciatica about 25 years ago in Florida, and I
expected to be able to receive pain relief. However, I chose on
acupuncturist who misdiagnosed my problem and made it much worse. It was
the worst pain I have ever have had in my 86 years. I could not walk and
the pain was constant from shoulder blades to toenails. Sleep was
impossible except with medication.
Dr. Peng began acupuncture
treatments (early 2003) and recommended herbal pills and patches. After
the third needling the p ain was almost gone. I was pain-free after the
sixth treatment. My mental attitude became upbeat and I joined friends for
church, eating out, and entertained my bridge club 3 weeks after I met Dr.
She is caring and very professional as well as friendly and
compassionate. She was as happy as I when the pain lessened and now is
I have now recommended Dr., Peng to several of my
friends at the retirement center where I live. Acupuncture is the best
pain reliever I know.

"The nature of my condition was that I had pulled a
muscle in my lower back, and I could hardly move. Before this situation
occurred, I had used traditional Chinese medicine for other conditions in
the past, specifically herbal treatment for allergies, and I knew that it
worked for many other ailments as well. Dr. Linda Peng was very helpful
and knowledgeable. She explained everything she was doing and did a great
It’s always hard finding a good doctor you like who makes you
feel comfortable, and Dr. Peng was very good. The clinic, procedures and
doctor’s manner was very professional. Even though I’ve been treated using
herbal medicine many times before, I was a little nervous because this was
my first time actually having acupuncture. It was not painful at all.
There was not much sensation when the needles were being put in my back,
it was much less than having your finger pricked. The treatment was very
relaxing and helpful. It didn’t help right away but the next day my back
felt so much better.
The pain from the pulled muscle finally went
away after three treatments. It took a few days for the muscle to feel
completely back to normal, but it helped tremendously. The day following
each treatment was when it was very helpful. Overall it took about 2 weeks
for the problem to go away. I would definitely recommend this treatment to

Question: NATURE OF CONDITION AND RECOVERY
I had slipped and fallen all most a year ago. My MRI and X-rays revealed three herniated disks in my neck. C3-4 C4-5 and C5-6. I had been treated in many different ways. Ultra sound, physical therapy, massage therapy, medicines, the TENS therapy and even traction. I was told that it appeared as thought the only other option was surgery. I did not feel as though this was a good option for me as I had little or no confidence in this prognosis .
I have friends that have had some success with acupuncture so I decided to try it. You came with a recommendation from a very close family friend. Without this recommendation I may have gone elsewhere and may or may not still be having the same symptoms.
The treatment that I received from Dr. Peng was extremely helpful. Office visits were done in a very comfortable environment and to my surprise there was little or no discomfort or pain. As I said, I had been getting traditional treatment for this for nearly a year and was still not able to work at 100% or even close. I think that the most frustrating part was that the things that I could do before, mow the grass, exercise, work normally, all were made difficult. After only 4 (four) treatments over a two week period, things had improved greatly. I am at a point now where I may only go visit Dr. Peng once a week, and it is my feelings that very soon I will only have to see the Doctor on an as needed basis.
It is hard for me to believe that I could have such astounding results in such a short time. I wish that I had tried Dr. Peng’s acupunture/accupressure therapy long before now. It is hard for me to understand with all the achievements in modern medicine that I had to spend all most a full year in pain. Also that none of my traditional treating doctors would recommend something of this nature. Perhaps all medical insurance carriers should look into acupuncture/acupressure as a means of helping more patients as an effective and cost reducing option.
It has been nothing short of amazing the results that I have received and I have been recommending Dr. Peng and her practice to anyone that is having difficulty getting the results they may need to move forward after an injury.
Dr. Peng, my family and I would like to thank you for allowing all of us to return to a pain-free normal life.
