My husband Louis Gonzales was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and Arthritis. He was taking medication for both the arthritis in his back and hip was so painful that he was home bound. He could not enjoy any activity that takes more than 7 steps. After about 8 acupuncture treatment he could walk without pain and now we can travel to visit our grandchildren.

I was taking Acyclovir for 1st week, then about 6 Vicodin a day, also with some Motrin for pain caused by shingles. I also tried Aspirin with Codine but that did not work on pain as well as Vicodin. I received acupuncture treatment and drank herbal tea formulated by Dr. Shin. The pain lessened each week. At first I came 3 times a week, then twice a week to control the pain. I’m still coming but I have very little pain now.
I have been treated at Shins Healing for a number of maladies and injuries including severe back pain, hair loss (diagnosed as alopecia), Rosacea, and joint pain. In every case, the problem was reversed and I remain symptom free. The most astounding treatment was for a severe injury relating to a fall where I barely had time to stop the full impact with my hands. I was coming in for a regular back pain treatment 2 days after the fall. I was bruised from my wrists to my elbows and had suffered trauma to both knees. Dr. Shin, Kay and June immediately jumped into action and my recovery time was minimal… bruises were minimized with a week and the pain decreased immediately. I’m sure it was the one-two-three punch of acupuncture, chiropractic and massage therapy that contributed to my rapid recovery. I would have never thought to go to Dr. Shin for this type of injury, and now I would never consider going to anyone else. I recommend Shin Acupuncture to all my friends without hesitation.
A dear friend recommended me to to Shin Acupuncture and Herbs clinic when I was having trouble with my joints. I immediately felt their interest and concern.
Between Dr. Kay Chang’s probing curiosity to get to the source of my condition, Dr. Shin’s precise, compassionate skill as one of the very finest acupuncturists, and June’s intricate detailed understanding of the human form, I am now considerably better. They make it look easy, but that is just the modesty of truly gifted practicioners.
The atmosphere at Shin Acupuncture and Herbs is friendly and if you’re lucky to spend a few minutes in their comfy waiting room, take advantage of the fascinating books on health that adorn their shelves.
Have a cold, a cough, low energy – want to really know why you’re running on two cylinders instead of eight, check yourself into into Shin Acupuncture and Herbs clinic for a hour and you will see, as I have, how lucky we are to have them here in Glendale when we need help.
I am a martial artist and injured my hamstring while practicing. I had only limited range of motion and flexibility for months. I had four acupuncture treatments including rehab exercises specifically designed for my condition. I felt the change in my leg almost immediately. During these treatments I did not train but when I returned to training my leg was smooth and easy-it felt great! I also received a Body Composition Analysis and was surprised and happy to confirm the status of my well-being status in terms of BMI, fat, body cell mass, total body water, integrity of cell membrane as well as its communication.

I was prescribed muscle relaxants and anti-inflammatory medications for my bruised neck, back and ribs from mountain biking injuries I also had x-rays taken of my neck and ribs. Nothing was broken but I had massive swelling on my upper back and shoulders as well as same swelling on my left temple. My ribs on the right side of my body were also bruised. In addition to all my upper body pain, I started experiencing pain shooting down my left leg. I am very happy with the treatments I received. The treatment included acupuncture, meridian massage, herbal formula, and detox and weight management program. Most noticeable was the rapid reduction in swelling in my upper body and face. I also tried the detox program. I ended up losing almost 10 pounds(8 pounds from fat) and this was during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. Due to my injuries I wasn’t able to exercise as much as I would have liked. Body Composition Analysis before and after detox revealed significant improvement in every body component: BMI, BMR, total body water, body mass, phase angle, and capacitance.

My sinusitis started 3 years ago with a series of acute infections that never cleared up. For 2 ½ years it was treated with every sinus spray, allergy pill, asthma medication and 12 courses of various antibiotics. Finally in February 2005 I had to have endoscopic sinus surgery but in immune system was so low I was not able to recover correctly. It triggered severe migraine, fatigue and caused my Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) to got of control so that I could not digest nutrition. Since coming to the Dr. Shin I felt better than I have in years! My sinus problems and IBS were treated together and I learned that, since my sinusitis was not allergy related (confirmed previously b 2 allergists) it was most likely being caused by my IBS, which had also grown worse over the years. Dr. Chang corrected my cervical spine, my eating and provided the right supplements to help calm the IBS and Dr. Shin treated my sinuses and migraines and also worked to alleviate the IBS. My headaches are gone. My old energy is back and most side effects from surgery are now gone.
I have been suffering from chronic fatigue and insomnia. For the last several years I have made regular visits to my HMO+PPO doctors and have been told that I have a viral condition that will pass in a few days (it never did), been offered sleep aids like Ambien, been referred to sleep specialist to have my sleep monitored, had blood tests, EKG’s, CT Scans, none of which produced any relief or results. I was desperate when I called Shin Acupuncture & Natural Healing because my condition was affecting my work and family life. On my first visit they diagnosed that my problems were related to stomach and digestion. Within 3 treatments I was sleeping and feeling better. After 6 acupuncture treatments with meridian massage and customized herbal tea I was getting a normal night’s sleep and had great energy throughout the day. I also followed 21 day-detox program. It seemed like a miracle after so many years of fatigue and insomnia that I was actually able to feel rested and energetic each day. Once more, rather than feeling like I was being “processed” on the HMO/PPO assembly line, the doctors at Shin Acupuncture & Herbs (Dr. Shin, Dr. Chang, and June) are always friendly in nature and truly concerned with helping me. I cannot speak enough about their caring nature and approach to medicine. And though I was treated for fatigue and insomnia, I also got the residual benefits of relief from sinusitis (no more Claritin, Allergra, Nasonex…etc.) and relief from stomach problems (no more Tums, Rolaids, bloated stomach + gas). Thanks to the doctors at Shin Acupuncture and Herbs being “processed” on the HMO/PPO assembly line, the doctors at Shin Acupuncture & Herbs my health is coming back to Normal and my life is balanced.
