Patient's Heartfelt Recommendation: Family, In-Laws, Friends, and 4 Neighbors All Seek Care with Dr. Yang

"Dr Joy is the best acupuncturist I have worked with and I have experienced immediate shifts in my body as she makes adjustments through our sessions" The following is Jessic's google review Working with Dr Joy has been incredible! I am very thoughtful about the practitioners I have chosen to work with and after much research, felt as though Dr Joy could help me. I currently drive 2 hours each way for my appointments as I could not find a practitioner who could help me locally. I have dealt with Lyme and also began seeing her last Fall for recurring Shingles. I had experienced Shingles previously (I am only 32), during a time of stress, and it popped up again in the Fall with that familiar rash and nerve pain. My body was so full of toxins that I was so tired, had trouble sleeping, my emotions felt all over the place, and the rash that had initially started on my sides began extending up over my chest, covered my whole upper left arm, low back, and down onto my thighs. The rash was THE WORST, not feeling comfortable wearing clothes, always feeling like I had to manage it - like an invisible prison. I have, for the longest time, experienced low body temp (around 97) with cold hands and feet. I also had dealt with neck pain that I would manage with massage. After my first appointment with Dr Joy, my neck pain disappeared! It took some time and dedication working through Shingles, but after 4-5 months the nerve pain was gone and my rash was almost completely better. I’m going on 8/9 months working with Dr Joy now and feels as though my body is sorting through everything. I am warmer now (98 degrees!), my sleep is deeper, I feel lighter. I frequently nap during my sessions and every session can be different as she tailors her care to your needs. Appointments never feel rushed. We have incorporated cupping, acupuncture, moxibustion, herbs, ear seeds, movement, and diet change into my care. Dr Joy not only treats you at your session, but she can provide you with the tools needed to continue care at home in-between sessions which has been so helpful. Dr Joy is the best acupuncturist I have worked with and I have experienced immediate shifts in my body as she makes adjustments through our sessions. She is thoughtful, kind, & wise. I appreciate the teamwork aspect of her care as she really listens to you, believes what you are experiencing, and then moves into action to support your body with what it needs. If you have experienced a lack of support with western medicine, feel as though you are a complex case, or are just wanting to improve your quality of life, please see Dr Joy and experience the expertise she has within Chinese medicine!

"She is an extraordinary human being, a brilliant doctor and a terrific healer!"
-Dr. Patty Perillo, the former Vice President at Virginia Tech
