Chinese medicine is versatile, and many are unaware of the range of conditions it can treat, both as a primary and an adjunct therapy. The World Health Organization recognizes its efficacy for treating more than 100 symptoms and diseases. Some of the conditions treated by acupuncture and herbal medicine include:


Pain       »Back to Top

Despite the use of anti-inflammatory drugs, pain killers, cortisone shots and surgery, pain continues to afflict millions of Americans, preventing us from living life to the fullest and costing billions of dollars each year. Recent studies have provided convincing evidence that acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment for pain without the side effects of medications and the trauma of surgery (1). Scientific research indicates that acupuncture and herbal therapy not only alter the brain’s perception of pain signals, but also reduce inflammation, improve blood circulation and accelerate tissue repair. Whether your pain is acute or chronic, we will help you achieve a pain-less state through an individualized treatment plan.

Testimonials

"I live four months a year in Tucson, but if I ever needed a reason to move there permanently, it would be to enjoy, as I do every week while there, the pain relief and the body comfort I get from Dr. Zhang's gentle acupuncture and her extraordinary knowledge of oriental herb mixtures."
 --Anthony, Cape Cod and Tucson

I am happy to report that I have had some excellent results from acupuncture treatments and herbals prescribed by Dr. Zhang. My quality of life has improved beyond anything I thought would result from these ancient eastern regimens. For example, Relief of foot pain from Horton's Neuroma. I can now wear shoes more comfortably, and I will not need surgery. Relief also from pain from arthritic shoulder and ongoing allergy symptoms.” (This is an excerpt from a longer testimonial.)

"Dr. Zhang has been treating me now for several months. She has been focusing on the fatigue that has plagued me for months as well as pain from an ankle that I broke over 20 years ago. I have to say that I have experienced HUGE improvements in both issues so I would highly recommend Dr. Zhang to anyone who wants to see results!"
--Sue, in Tucson

"After years of cortisone injections, my back pain was so severe that I could not walk without pain. And then only a few steps at a time and I had to sit down. Then 16 months ago, I developed diarrhea so severe that it limited my life to home. In 2012, after many tests by two gastroenterologists, treatment with pills that did not even slow down the diarrhea, not to mention back pain, I asked my PCP for a referral to an acupuncturist. How lucky was I that she referred me to Dr. Clare Zhang.

Dr. Clare listened to my problems, treated me with acupuncture and herbal mixtures. At the beginning, I had great difficulty in climbing onto the treatment table. Since the course of treatments, I no longer have pain when I walk. I can get in and out of bed and turn in bed without pain..... and I can access the treatment table with no problem. To my amazement, my diarrhea stopped after my first acupuncture treatment and cup of herbal mix.

I am so grateful for Dr. Clare. She is not only well-educated in her fields but she is a brilliant healer. I am now a sincere believer in Oriental Medicine. Dr. Clare has made my life livable again and I am sincerely grateful."

Cardiovascular and Respiratory Issues »Back to Top

Many chronic cardiovascular and respiratory diseases are silent killers, showing minimum symptoms in daily life while turning deadly in acute events. Acupuncture and herbal medicine are very effective in treating these chronic recurrent issues (1, 2). For example, for seasonal allergies and allergic asthma, we focus on symptoms during the allergy seasons and work on root problems during the non-allergy seasons. After one to two years of therapy, most patients become allergy-free or only experience mild allergy symptoms occasionally. Another example is that acupuncture and herbs can lower blood pressure to the same extent as single-drug therapy and aggressive lifestyle changes. Feel free to ask us about natural therapies for your cardiopulmonary problems. We will also work with your medical doctors to manage your conditions in a natural and integrative way.

Testimonials

"My husband suffered a hemorrhagic stroke four years ago. Since then, the right side of his body has paralyzed. He also lost most of his speech. It is sad, because he was the best storyteller I know. Through our daughter, we heard about Dr. Zhang and what acupuncture may do for stroke recovery. With just a few treatments, he had better range of motion in his shoulder and ankle. His right hand was much softer. To our surprise, he also spoke more clearly, and began to try words he was not able to say before. We were very encouraged. However, four years after the stroke, he has missed the optimal time window for full recovery. How I wish we had known about acupuncture 4 years ago! If acupuncture is integrated into the medical system for stroke recovery and covered by health insurances, many people will benefit."

Metabolic Diseases »Back to Top

Metabolic syndrome has become a leading cause of serious medical complications leading to greater morbidity and mortality. While lifestyle changes and medications are important for managing metabolic diseases, acupuncture and herbal medicine have been shown to enhance the effects of these therapies through a number of mechanisms including stimulating fat metabolism, reducing blood pressure, improving insulin sensitivity and preserving renal functions (1-3).

General Conditions »Back to Top

Chinese medicine has always emphasized health maintenance and disease prevention. Chinese culture holds in the highest regard those clinicians capable of “treating prior to diseases”. Therefore, for thousands of years cumulative efforts in this direction have led to sophisticated and successful therapies for treating various conditions that are crucial for general well-being but lack effective treatments in conventional medicine.

Testimonials

I am happy to report that I have had some excellent results from acupuncture treatments and herbals prescribed by Dr. Zhang. My quality of life has improved beyond anything I thought would result from these ancient eastern regimens. Some treatments resolve problems, some are ongoing and the herbals are wonderful - Dr. Zhang continues to review and adjust her herbal "recipes" as needed. Some specifics are as follows:

* Most notable, is the overall relief I now have from digestive issues (Irritable Bowel Syndrome and GERD) and chronic bladder (Interstitial Cystitis) problems. Response to acupuncture and herbals made unbelievable improvements.

* Earlier this year (2011), I experienced alarming episodes of hand, wrist, and arm numbness that radiated to my mouth and face. After only the first two or three acupuncture treatments to my scalp and face, I have not had a return of symptoms. This was a truly dramatic result.

* Relief of foot pain from Horton's Neuroma. I can now wear shoes more comfortably, and I will not need surgery. Relief also from pain from arthritic shoulder and ongoing allergy symptoms.

* Another overall benefit - increased energy, so welcomed at age 83.

* It's important to know that over many years, and from time to time, I've been treated for my above concerns by traditional medicine with varying results from time-to-time, but never with the long term success and with trust and hope as I have with Dr. Zhang.”

I have been going to Clare since she was a student at the Arizona School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Clare has reduced the pain in my hip by using traditional oriental medicine and acupuncture. She has also helped with my diabetes; before going to her I had major swings in my blood sugar levels. She also helped with my menopausal symptoms, and digestive issues that I have had for many years. I trust Clare to keep me healthy.”
--Judy, Tucson

"Amazing relief for my chronic insomnia! I visited Dr. Zhang for my long-standing inability to obtain a full night of sleep. I was very impressed when I learned that Dr. Zhang has a PhD in Physiology/Pharmacology from the University of Florida and worked as a biomedical researcher before earning a degree in Chinese Medicine. She combined both types of knowledge in assessing my problem and arriving at a treatment. Dr. Zhang's needle therapy and herbs worded wonders, greatly improving the rest that I receive."

--PA, Tucson

"Dear Clare,

I want to give you a very heartfelt 'thank you' once again for our treatment in January. Things were stressful during the past few months as I tried to break old habits, and form new ones and accept weight gain. Overall, though, I’ve experienced definite improvement. I’m happy to say that in April, I felt a consistent state of emotional and physical stability that I have not had in a few years.. all because of a change in my diet. I now eat red meat and grains more regularly, and I love goji berries! Your dietary suggestions and upfront feedback about changing my habits were exactly what I needed. Thank you so much for your help.

Sincerely, Amy"

"As a veteran from 2 wars (Viet Nam and Iraqi Freedom), I had been suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) for over 8 years before I went to see Dr. Zhang. I originally went to see her for a bruised tailbone. But after a couple of acupuncture sessions, my tailbone pain was gone. However, to my biggest surprise and as a side effect of the treatments, I was able to sleep through the night (more than 6 hours) for the first time in almost 7 years. I also felt calmer and had a lot more energy. I now get continued regular acupuncture treatments for maintenance and take the Chinese herbs Dr. Zhang has prescribed. We have worked together now for over eighteen months. I feel much better overall (Super-fantastic), because I sleep well and have sustained energy. I am no longer anxious or stressed out. My heart arrhythmia has also lessened. I am very happy with my experience."

Gastrointestinal Issues      »Back to Top

Acupuncture is effective in a wide range of gastrointestinal disorders, in particular, conditions for which conventional medicine finds no satisfactory remedy (1). Because Western medicine deals with specific causative agents of diseases, medications are often unable to treat the problem at its root. Chinese medicine treats the body as a whole, with the understanding how gastrointestinal issues interact with other areas of your life, such as sleep, energy, emotions etc. Within several weeks of treatment, you will notice improvement in not only your digestion but also your general well-being. Numerous studies have shown that acupuncture relaxes the intestines and regulates gastric motility (2). With our combination of acupuncture, Chinese herbs and nutritional counseling, your digestive system will be transformed with long-lasting relief.

Testimonials

Acupuncture, herbal teas and special potions that Dr. Clare Zhang administered to me for about a year helped me with my stomach problems, a lazy stomach. Clare researched all my medications I was taking and adjusted them.  She truly is a caring, loving person with a great understanding of the body’s function and rather than going for more medication, she uses natural approaches. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr. Clare Zhang, in her ability of combining Chinese and Western medicine.”

“I have suffered from stomach ulcer for several years. I have taken antibiotic regimens three times, and it only got worse. I often had stomachache and cramps, and sometimes loose stools. Strangely, during the course, I gained weight.

After I stopped antibiotics and started taking Dr. Zhang's Chinese medicine, and following her recommended dietary adjustments, my stomachache and cramps stopped, my bowel movement returned normal, and my weight also dropped back to my normal level.

I think Chinese traditional medicine is a good complement to modern medicine, and may be a last resort sometimes when the latter fails. I would recommend Dr. Zhang for those suffering from chronic diseases that do not respond to regular medicine. Give it a try and you might be pleasantly surprised. I was.”

Genitourinary »Back to Top

Genitourinary problems can be annoying and persistent. Standard medical treatments often emphasize the microbial and mechanical aspects of these conditions, offering short-term relief but not long-lasting results. Utilizing the tools of natural medicine, including acupuncture, herbal therapy and nutritional supplements, our practitioners will first help relieve the discomfort while also treating the patient as a whole, bringing the physiological and emotional being into harmony to ensure sustained results. As every case is unique, we will treat your case individually. Feel free to discuss with us your personalized treatment plan and possible outcomes.


Children's Health »Back to Top

Many are not aware that Chinese medicine has treated children's diseases for hundreds of years. Dr. Qian Yi (1035-1117 AD), the greatest pediatrician in the Chinese medicine history, designed many herbal formulas for children that are still widely used today. Children are not jaded. They have pure spirits and respond extremely well to natural therapies such as acupressure, craniosacral therapy, Tui Na massage, ear seeds, herbs and nutritional supplements. We have helped many children overcome emotional stress, behavioral issues, allergy and digestive problems.

Testimonials

Clare,

You have given me hope. Over the past four years I have taken Jacob to numerous health care practitioners in search of treatment for his anxieties and sensitivities. These specialists have included: Osteopaths, Psychologists, Chiropractors, and MDs specializing in holistic medicine. They prescribed the following treatments: neurofeedback; behavioral therapy (CBT); nutritional supplements; homeopathy; counseling; osteopathic manipulation and as a last resort, prescription medication. All of these interventions met with limited success.

It wasn't until he started seeing you that I began to see positive and lasting changes in his behavior and attitude. In just a few short months your skillful integration of Craniosacral therapy, Chinese herbal medicine, ear acupuncture, Gua Sha, relaxation techniques, and visual imagery has been extremely effective in reducing Jacob?s anxiety. Your comprehensive TCM approach has had a positive impact on his sleep health, digestion, and other interrelated issues stemming from his anxiety disorder.

You are an intuitive and brilliant healer. Your extensive knowledge of both Eastern and Western medicine, passion to help people feel better, and loving heart has nourished Jacob's nervous system, promoted self healing, and strengthened his spirit. Your compassionate listening skills and timely words of wisdom allow Jacob to feel well understood and heard. This has transformed him into a happy, healthy, confident, and well balanced child. This makes my heart smile and gives me continued hope. For this, I am extremely grateful.”

With much love, respect & admiration,
--Amy (Jacob is 10 years old. He and his mother Amy live in Tucson.)

“My son is a fifth grader and has been experiencing high levels of anxiety and emotional instability. Hearing Dr. Zhang's practice, we brought him to the clinic. We couldn't have made a better choice! Going through cranio-sacral therapy, ear seeds and herbal medicine that Dr. Zhang provided, my son has exhibited much higher level of self control and comfort. On top of these, Dr. Zhang is such a nice, gentle and patient caregiver! she spent hours counseling my son in personal conversation. My son told me that this was the first time he enjoyed talking to a doctor!”
--A grateful parent from Tucson

“My son was born premature. Since he was little, he caught cold or flu easily, usually starting with fever, sore throat and ended with a hacking cough that would linger for a long time even on antibiotics. As Dr. Zhang has been our long-term friend, we decided to try Chinese medicine. She gave my son Chinese herbs that strengthen his immunity and improve his digestion (interestingly, she said that upper respiratory function is closely related to digestive function in Chinese medicine). After a few month of herbal remedy, I can tell a big difference in my boy. He has been fine this winter while many people around him were sick. A couple of times he seemed to come down with something, but got over pretty fast without full blown symptoms. By the way, he is no longer constipated and has not complained about stomachache for a long time. The herbs really worked!?”

Women’s Health »Back to Top

Women experience unique physical, emotional and hormonal changes during menstrual cycles and in different phases throughout the life. Treatment of women’s health issues, therefore, should respect and facilitate the natural flow of the female energy. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine are very effective in treating a wide range of gynecological and obstetrical conditions. For example, acupuncture combined with herbs has been widely used to improve fertility. The mechanisms appear to involve regulation of ovulation, elevation in the uterine blood flow and increase in chances of implantation. Every woman is different and will be treated with gentle sensitivity to suit your needs. Please discuss with us how Chinese medicine can help with your concerns.

“Dear Clare, I don't think I ever thanked you for all your help. I took me a full 6 months to recover from my (hysterectomy) surgery, but now, finally, I feel so much better. No more pain, which is just amazing. But at the time, you were the only one who was able to help me manage it (uterine fibroid), and the only one who really listened and cared, and the only one who was willing to work with me to manage the pain, and for that I'm really and forever grateful.”

Neurological Conditions »Back to Top

Neurological disorders are a medical field for which acupuncture and herbal medicine have shown impressive efficacy for improving recovery from acute events as well as slowing down disease progression. For instance, acupuncture has been widely used for post-stroke recovery in China. (1) Numerous clinical reports indicated that if ischemic stroke patients receive an acupuncture treatment protocol entitled “Awaken Brain & Open Orifice” invented by Dr. Xue-Ming Shi, member of Chinese Academy of Science, within 3 months of stroke, more than 90% of patients have significant improvement in motor function and speech. The earlier they receive acupuncture, the better the clinical outcome (2). Another example is our success in treating a case of drug-induced mandibular dystonia for which conventional medicine has yet to offer effective treatment.

“ I am very glad to be able to recommend Dr. Clare Zhang.  Due to a neurological disorder, mandibular dystonia, I suffer with involuntary movement of my tongue.  Through good fortune I became a patient at an acupuncture clinic in Tucson and Dr. Zhang worked twice a week with me.  I had acupuncture twice a week with Clare and what a difference!  My tongue movement slowed down and lessened my daily pain. I feel so much better and my thanks go to Dr. Clare Zhang.”

Case discussions

"In early 2013, a patient with radial nerve palsy sought acupuncture. His right wrist was "dropped", and he could not extend any fingers of his right hand. This problem was caused by edema compressing the radial nerve after a trauma injury to his right humerus bone. Four months after the initial injury, the functional improvement was still minimal in spite of surgery and physical therapy he received. However, based on his young age, physical fitness and strong willpower, I was optimistic in his full recovery. I designed a comprehensive approach that involved weekly acupuncture (body, ear and scalp), electro-stimulation, low level laser therapy and daily intake of Chinese herbs. After four acupuncture sessions, he began to notice some improvement. After six sessions, the wrist extension was comparable to the healthy hand. After eleven sessions, he regained nearly full range of motion and strength in his right hand. He was happily discharged after twelve sessions. Looking back now, 3 months and 12 sessions are not slow for recovery of a damaged nerve. However, during the process, the healing felt slow. It was often two steps forward, one step backward. A period of plateau followed each leap before the next leap took place. Therefore, as a practitioner, helping the patients understand the healing process is not linear and providing them with continuous encouragement was very important."

Cancer Support »Back to Top

Conventional cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy can be effective in reducing or eradicating some cancers; however, they produce numerous side effects. Chinese medicine is increasingly used as an adjunctive therapy for reducing or managing these side effects with marked success (1-2). Many patients report significant improvement in quality of life and ability to function with Chinese medicine. These benefits generally include improved immune function as well as reduced fatigue, pain, nausea and vomiting, stress and weakness.

Autoimmune Diseases »Back to Top

Autoimmune diseases benefit greatly from the proper combination of conventional medicine and Chinese medicine. Main methods in conventional medicine include non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), steroids, immunosuppressants, and anti-malaria drugs. They play a critical and irreplaceable role in rescuing patients from acute phases and severe complication of autoimmune diseases, but long-term use carry numerous and often serious adverse effects. Chinese herbal medicine has a proven track record in treating autoimmune conditions, in terms of relieving pain, modulating immune system, reducing steroid dependency and restoring health, and is safe for long-term use. However, the effects of Chinese medicine are often too slow or too weak for acute flare-ups and critical organ damage. Therefore, the success of integrative medicine depends on proper use and timing of different approaches. For mild cases and during remission, Chinese medicine can be used alone to manage symptoms and maintain functions; for severe conditions and acute flare-ups, conventional medicine should be used to stabilize symptoms first, followed by addition of Chinese medicine, in order to gradually reduce or discontinue steroids without rebound effects.

Testimonials

" Before I met Dr. Zhang, I had suffered from rheumatoid arthritis and Sjogren’s syndrome for several years. I had lots of pain in hands and feet. My eyes and throat were always dry. Nothing could quench my thirst. The fatigue was so bad that I didn’t have energy to do much of anything. But all these changed since I met Dr. Zhang in 2008. She listened to me and reviewed my case carefully. She designed herbal formulas to treat me in a holistic way. She made regular phone calls to listen to my feedback and make sure no side effects with the herbs. Very soon, my health began to improve. Most of my symptoms have relieved. My energy and quality of life have improved so much that I was able to go back to work. I am very grateful to Dr. Zhang. What impresses me most is that she truly cares about her patients. She goes extra length to make sure they are taken care of. She is not only a good doctor, but has become a friend who I trust and respect."

A case of sarcoidosis

"In September 2014, a 66-year old woman with sarcoidosis came to see me. She was referred by her dermatologist. She presented sarcoidal granulomas consistent with sarcoidosis, anemia, muscle pain and weakness, insomnia and fatigue. Her autoimmune and inflammatory markers, e.g. erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), CRP and homocysteine, were abnormally high. I prescribed DHEA and Pregnenolone sublingual drops, vitamin B complex sublingual, natural progesterone cream, and Chinese herbal medicine. Within a month, her sleep and energy level started to improve. She felt better and began walking and meditation. In January 2015, body scan by her dermatologist showed diminished sarcoidosis. In March 2015, blood test showed that ESR, CRP and homocysteine levels were in the normal range, and she was not anemic anymore. She said in her email to me, 'I am so so happy and grateful, the first blood work in 3 years with good results!!! Oh am I smiling and in gratitude!!! I am on my journey to total healing :-)' "
