EYE PAIN

“I am currently 35 years old.  During my early teens, I began to develop a horrible pain in my right eye.  It would come and go, yet I never pursued any type of help.  Once I hit my 20's, not only did my pain become constant, but from time to time, I would have a "glossed over" look in my right eye.  I had mentioned this pain to my ophthalmologist time and time again.  Yet I'd always get the same response, "I don't see anything wrong."  A few years later, after constant complaints to my Dr., he then referred me to a specialist, who in return, referred me to have an MRI.  Yet again, same response.  At that stage in my life, I had come to accept  the fact that I was to live with this pain for the rest of my life.  I had done all I could, had seen the best doctors, and had no other options.   Years went by, and then I thought about trying acupuncture.  I immediately booked an appointment with Hung-yuan Cheng.  And to my surprise, I had someone that would actually listen, unlike all the specialists I had previously seen.  After seeing Mr. Cheng for less than a year, I am COMPLETELY pain free in my eye!   Mr. Cheng, in my opinion, did more for me than any Dr. could have ever done.  His professionalism, his honesty, and his passion for helping others is something that is hard to find in a Dr.'s office these days.  Now, anytime an issue comes up with my body, I immediately book my appt with Mr. Cheng, eliminate the pain, and move on with my life.”  ~T.H.

WOMEN'S HEALTH/DIGESTIVE ISSUES/PAIN

“I started going to Timeless Acupuncture as a last resort.  I was suffering from Lymphocytic Colitis, Fructose Intolerance, SIBO and severe back pain.  I truly thought "what do I have to lose?"  Well, I feel better than I have in years.  Not only have my digestive and back problems eased, but my night sweats and hot flashes, insomnia and anxiety issues have disappeared even though I've come off hormone replacement therapy and anxiety meds!   I'm amazed. 
            Hung-yuan is truly an "honest" gentleman and really wants to help.  If he doesn't think he can help, he'll tell you.  He also has a way of making you feel very comfortable, even when you have to stick out your tongue, weird right. 
Thanks Hung-yuan.”           ~K.Y.

WOMEN'S HEALTH/ENDOMETRIOSIS

“I initially came to Timeless Acupuncture for pain management and treatment of endometriosis.  Since starting the treatments, I have mostly pain-free.  I have also noticed more energy and an improved sense of well-being.  This has been such a positive experience, and I have recommended Timeless Acupuncture to clients as well as family and friends.  I have also returned for treatment in other areas (allergies and chronic cough).  I will continue to seek care at this office.  I have been so happy with both Hung-yuan and Wendy.  They take the time to listen and truly care about their clients.”  ~J.H.

INFERTILITY WITH UNKNOWN CAUSE

“My husband and I had spent a year trying to start our family.  We'd been tested for infertility and were diagnosed as “cause unknown.”  This was frustrating because we didn't have any condition to “fix.”  After 2 failed IUIs we regrouped and decided to approach other methods.
We both began seeing Wendy in January for regular acupuncture treatments to increase fertility.  Wendy is a gifted acupuncturist, but also a kind person who is easy to talk to and can help you work through the emotional roller coaster and stress that comes with being unable to conceive.  
After 4 months of treatment she felt that our bodies were ready to move forward with another assisted reproductive treatment - this time IVF.  And, it was successful on the first try.  In fact, I became pregnant with twins.  Wendy was very supportive and made time to fit us in for treatments at critical junctures.  I truly believe that without her guidance and treatments we could still be trying for our family.  I just wish I'd met her sooner!”     ~C.P.

INFERTILITY/IVF

“The major issue I was experiencing was implantation failure in what was in all other regards to be considered good IVF cycles, and after suffering through several IVF cycles I was not a strangers to the benefits of acupuncture. I switched to Timeless Acupuncture because they accepted my medical plan and they were close to my home, and from that unassuming beginning I could not have expected a more auspicious ending.
            During the initial consultation, I was pleasantly surprised that Wendy seemed to understand the pain I was going through, it did not feel like a typical "doctor patient" relationship. Even better were the results, after so so results from the other clinic. The initial treatments at Timeless noticeably increasing the circulation to my womb, they also helped on the transfer day. In the past, I always used acupuncture to stop or at least minimize the cramping involved with the egg transfer, imagine my shock when after the initial insertion I experienced absolutely no cramping. In addition to all these physical aspects the treatments also assisted with the emotional aspects of an IVF cycle by helping me maintain a positive attitude.
            I can now attest that the acupuncture treatments played a key role in this endeavor, and I can now say that I have a beautiful baby girl. I highly recommend acupuncture for anyone going through IVF, more specifically I recommend that they get their treatments at Timeless Acupuncture. Not all acupuncturists are the same and Wendy is by far one of the best.”  ~VCF

INFERTILITY/PREGNANCY

“I was referred to Wendy by a friend of mine.  She also went to Wendy for infertility and had great success.  My husband and I tried for the last year and were getting frustrated.  I came to Wendy in April 2009 and after 5 months of weekly treatments I was pregnant!  My husband and I cannot thank Wendy more for her caring manner and professionalism.  We are now proud parents of a wonderful daughter.  Thank you Timeless Acupuncture!”         ~C.C.

INFERTILITY/IBS

“In Dec. of 2008 I was referred to Wendy and Hung-yuan at Timeless Acupuncture by a close friend.  I was suffering from IBS and anovulation and read that acupuncture was a safe and natural way to deal with these issues. I had never done anything like this before so I was a little nervous at my first appointment. I was pleasantly surprised with my first experience with acupuncture.  Hung-yuan and Wendy were so kind and understanding.  They made me feel comfortable with my decision and were very supportive! I looked forward to coming back and working towards balancing my body.
            Throughout the next six months I visited Wendy quite frequently.  My IBS did improve but I had to be more patient with my ovaries.  I had been on birth control for many years so balancing this part of my body was a little more difficult.  Wendy continued to be supportive and tried several different approaches through acupuncture.  I always left feeling less stressed and relaxed. In July of 2009 I found out I was pregnant! My doctor even seemed surprised since I had shown no sign of ovulating. I really believe that by going to acupuncture my stress levels were reduced and I was able to let my body get back to its normal and working state.  Acupuncture is definitely a better option than medication and it does wonderful things for the mind and body!  I highly recommend it to everyone I know! I am very thankful for the effort, support, and friendship at Timeless Acupuncture!”           ~M.D.

TENNIS ELBOW/TENDONITIS

“I'm a fairly active 58 year old man in good health.  Before last fall, I had heard of tendonitis but never experienced it.  I always thought it was just a minor inconvenience to those who had it so when my elbow started getting really tender I ignored it.  As I continued working out at the gym, doing yard work, bowling, and anything else I felt like doing, my arm got much worse.  The pain traveled down to my wrist, hand, and even to my fingers.  By the time I went to see my family doctor it had gotten so bad that I couldn’t pick up a coffee cup.  I even had to switch hands to use the mouse on my computer.  My doctor diagnosed it as tendonitis.  He advised me rest the arm, take Advil, wear one of those elbow bands, and gave me some exercises to do.  He said that there was nothing else to do for it and that it could take a year or more to heal.  After a month of doing this nothing had changed and I was getting concerned about taking large doses of Advil for so long.  A trainer at the gym recommended Mr. Cheng for acupuncture.  She had been successfully seeing him for sports injuries and highly regarded him.  At this point I was ready to try most anything.    
            Since I’ve never been a big fan of needles, I was very nervous on my first trip.  However, Mr. Cheng was very attentive and considerate.  He put me at ease the moment I met him.  After listening to my story and examining my arm, he said that he could likely fix me up in eight to ten sessions.  He informed me that it was good that I had come so soon because the longer I waited the more acupuncture sessions I would have needed.  Despite my nervousness, the first session went really well.  I was so relaxed that I actually fell asleep on the table.  After three sessions I was having significantly less pain and the arm was feeling much better.  This was surprising in itself because Mr. Cheng had not yet needled the right elbow.  It was during the fourth and fifth sessions (when he started needling the right elbow) that I saw the biggest improvement.  My arm was probably eighty percent restored after the fifth session.  By the end of the seventh session I had improved to the point that Mr. Cheng left it up to me on whether or not to come back.  In two months my arm was restored to almost normal.  It was fantastic!
            Both Mr. Cheng and his wife are friendly and courteous people. I felt like a friend rather than a patient.  Most of all they are highly proficient professionals in their field.  In the future, I plan to use them as my first choice of doctors whenever I need medical attention. I would highly recommend Timeless Acupuncture to anyone else suffering from pain.”        ~S.C.

TENNIS ELBOW/ARM PAIN

“In September 2008, I got a new puppy.  After a month or so, I began to notice that my right arm was hurting.  I figured it was from the excitable young puppy jerking on the lease when I took her outside and figured I had a pulled muscle.
By January 2009, my arm was hurting really bad. I started wondering if it was my workstation in the office.   Our Ergonomic Specialist evaluated my desk and computer.  She brought me a wrist brace and had our Engineering Department remove the arms on my chair.  I ordered a new keyboard and made some height adjustments.  This seemed to help for a while.
            After another month or so, the pain returned with a vengeance.  I decided to go to a local Hand Specialist.  After evaluation and an MRI, I was told I had tennis elbow and that the tendons in the elbow were inflamed.  I was eventually given an injection and some exercises to do at home.  Everything seemed to be fine for about 3 months.
            I babysat my three year old grandson who had a temper tantrum during his visit.  When I picked him up to calm him, the pain returned immediately the next day.  I was in so much pain just like before.
            A co-worker told me she had gone to Timeless Acupuncture and had gotten excellent results.  I was ready to do anything and made an appointment…the rest is history.
            My experience with Timeless has been the best thing I have ever done.  I was very anxious at first but ready to get some relief from the pain.
            Mr. Cheng is a very caring professional who listens to your concerns and works very diligently in helping to alleviate your pain.  I began my treatments the second week of August and immediately notice a difference in the pain.  I finished my treatments the second week of November.  My tendon is no longer inflamed and the pain in the surrounding muscles is gone.
            Mr. Cheng has given me my life back.  I know that I will have to make a commitment to exercise my arm and take breaks away from the desk because of the type of work I do, but I can certainly do that.
            I have no more pain and that is the most important thing.  I would recommend Mr. Cheng to anyone who is experiencing chronic pain.  Acupuncture really does work.”           ~A.A.

FROZEN SHOULDER

“My husband used to say I had a dead arm.  He would say that every time we visited the medical doctor.  It was to express the extent of injury and level of frustration we've been feeling due to a prolonged injury with my "cold shoulder."  We are not sure what initiated this painful injury.  I can only speak of the extreme pain and limitations to my left arm/shoulder.  I endured a lengthy therapeutic treatment plan for 6 months with no signs of healing or improvement.  I encountered many sleepless nights and chronic pain and reached the end of my rope when the insurance company decided they knew better and declined the doctor’s prescription for a medical stretching chair.  The insurance company's consultant thought an operation would be more beneficial.  My doctor knew otherwise.  I gave up on the medical science when the insurance company thought they knew how to treat someone they've never met.
I came to Timeless Acupuncture at the request of my sister.  She had experience with this type of treatment and thought it would benefit me.  I've never considered acupuncture treatment as a legitimate means of medical treatment.  Probably due to fear of the unknown and being accustomed to the more common medical methods practiced in the eastern United States.  I decided to visit as a last resort.  I had no other alternatives.
Hung-yuan greeted me and made me feel at ease the moment I met him.  I explained why I was there and he listened with earnest attention.  He explained to me what was happening with my body and indicated he could treat me with immediate results.  I explained I was very afraid of needles and he quickly removed the fear with his sincerity and calm presence.  
The first treatment was just shy of miraculous.  The pain immediately left my arm.  I followed through with the remaining 8 treatments.  It was not just the acupuncture that made the difference.  Hung-yuan also treated me while I was there.  He massaged my shoulder and adjoining muscles/tissues.  I began to regain freedom of movement and the pain was gone.  I could once again sleep through the night.  After the 9 treatments Hung-yuan explained he could no longer treat the cold shoulder.  The rest of the journey was up to me - exercise and stretching. 
I'm so thankful to Hung-yuan for his treatment and excellent care.  My quality of life is restored.  His calm and presence made me feel at ease and he was so respectful to me during the treatment.  My first choice for future care is with Timeless Acupuncture.  Our national healthcare can run its own course.”        ~Sincerely, D.B. 

FROZEN SHOULDER

“I came to Timeless Acupuncture due to a frozen shoulder that was unresponsive to physical therapy and chiropractic, along with other alternative therapies.   Mr. Hung-yuan Cheng is very knowledgeable, and with his expertise, my shoulder began to move more easily and release the muscles and tendons, as he opened the energy channels where there was inhibition in my range of motion.  After about 6 sessions, I  showed significant improvement, and after 8 sessions I was doing push-ups pain free!  I  refer  whenever I have the opportunity anyone who may have need of assistance and would like to try acupuncture.   Mr. Cheng has excellent skills and is always seeking alternative strategies for the optimum results.  Out  of four acupuncturists I have seen over the years, he has the best combination of both experience and easy communication with clients to ensure successful treatment.  I highly recommend this acupuncturist!”     ~MP.T

FROZEN SHOULDER

“I told a friend about my frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis) condition and that I was in a lot of pain.  Timeless Acupuncture was recommended to me.  I decided to try acupuncture as an adjunct to the physical therapy I was already receiving elsewhere.  Since starting acupuncture treatments, I am progressing extremely well in physical therapy and with less pain.   Hung-yuan and Wendy provide a professional yet caring and relaxing environment at Timeless Acupuncture.  I am extremely pleased with the treatment and I have, and will continue to, recommend them to others.”           ~P.P.

NECK PAIN

“Dear Hung-yuan, To say that you made a difference in My Wife’s life would be an egregious understatement. Prior to meeting with you she had been going to doctors and practitioners, ---most of them very good by the way, ---since February of 2009. She was in constant 24/7 pain during that time interval.
            Well, her big break came when one of her orthopedic doctors referred her to you. Because of your knowledge, expertise, professionalism, and concern for patients, she successfully traveled back to health. We are both deeply indebted to you.
            Perhaps someday My Wife and I can meet you at a place for a delicious cup of coffee, -----no, strike that---- for a delicious cup of Asian tea. Of course, the meeting would not be complete without Wendy.  She and I had some pleasant conversations as I waited for Susan to be finished each week.
            We pray that the Lord continues to bless you both and, of course, your child as well.”     ~J.P.

TORTICOLLIS/DYSTONIA

“Hung-yuan and Wendy at Timeless Acupuncture have been a true gift from God.  Their extensive knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Occupational Therapy, and Psychology has enabled them to be used by my Lord, Jesus Christ, to bring healing to my body. In conjunction with other health professionals, they have helped me to see dramatic improvements in my overall health. Several years ago, I was diagnosed with Spasmodic Torticollis or Dystonia. I was suffering from constant severe pain. I received Botox injections every five to six months. The Botox injections helped reduce the level of pain and increased mobility. Unfortunately, the effectiveness of the injections wore off after only three months. My husband met Wendy at an Eisai health fair at work. He suggested that I give it a try. After the first acupuncture treatment, my physical therapist asked with amazement what had I done? She said in her best New York accent,"It feels like butta(butter)! The muscles in my neck and shoulder were now workable and no longer felt like a slab of concrete! I highly recommend Timeless Acupuncture to anyone. I currently have very little pain, greater mobility, and the disability is undetectable to most people. My range of motion is greatly improved. I thank the Lord for Wendy and Hung-yuan and for the gifts of healing, kindness, and compassion that He has blessed them with. I pray for God's showers of blessings upon them and you as you seek healing.”   ~L.C.

BACK PAIN

“I started going to Timeless Acupuncture because of back issues. I was skeptical at first. However, when starting acupuncture I had no feelings in my toes and now I have full feeling back. Acupuncture is relaxing and very stress relieving. I personally would recommend acupuncture to anyone because of my results it really does help. The staff at Timeless Acupuncture are very professional and take the time to go through the whole process completely.”        ~G.M.

BACK PAIN

“After having lower back pain for many years and trying everything from neurosurgery to chiropractic treatments to alleviate the pain in my back and legs. I was referred to your clinic. I was skeptical since nothing else had worked for me. I was treated once a week and within a month my pain was alleviated and I was able to walk much longer distances. Since the initial treatments I have came back for maintenance visits and my back and legs are so much better than before. I thank you for your special concern about my well being.  I have recommended your clinic to several people and even my wife (who hates needles). All have expressed satisfaction with the treatment they have received from your clinic.  I thank you again for restoring my ability to walk and to be pain free.”            ~D.B.

LUMBAR DEGENEARTION/SCIATICA PAIN

“To all out there in pain, I strongly recommend giving Mr. Cheng a practitioner of acupuncture the opportunity to improve the quality of your life by using acupuncture as a method of treating pain affecting your body. I came to Timeless Acupuncture as a first time experience of the acupuncture method of medicine with lower back problems affecting me for the last 13 years with a diagnosis of tissue deteriorating between my L4 and L5 on my lower back and as a result came to Mr. Cheng with my left side Sciatic Nerve causing me burning sensation, numbness, tingling radiating from my lower back down the back of my thigh to the back and side of my left leg. I had just gone through 6 months of chiropractic care with no solution to my pain. I felt that my body was deteriorating at a young age of 34 years old. By my 3rd visit from experiencing Mr. Cheng’s treatments, he was able to get a handle of my Sciatic Nerve problems to the point where there is NO MORE PAIN and now we are into our 4th month of working together to improve my overall quality of my physical condition. I strongly recommend Timeless Acupuncture to improve your physical well being just like it has for me.”            ~W.S.

SCOLIOSIS/BACK PAIN/SHOULDER PAIN

“When I was thirteen years old, I underwent scoliosis back surgery and have had lower back discomfort and shoulder pain ever since. Over the next few years, the pain would come and go, but as time passed, the pain got worse and came more frequently until it wouldn't go away anymore. I tried many different treatments such as massages and chiropractic visits, but the pain relief only lasted about two or three days at most. When I first came to Timeless, my left shoulder was hurting very badly and I couldn't stand or sit for very long without constant lower back pain. Now, after about six months of treatment, my lower back rarely hurts and I am able to remain shoulder-pain free for a little over two weeks at a time. Thank you, Timeless, for helping me manage my pain!”          ~V.C.

CHRONIC BACK PAIN

“I had originally hurt my back over a decade ago as a child in a freak accident falling on concrete. It slowly got worse with age, sports abuse, and countless mishaps until I decided that I really needed medical attention. My back was in pain 24/7. I couldn't sleep, sit, stand, walk, or hold any type of position for any extended period of time without a lot of uncomfortable feelings and muscle tension which ran from my lower back up through my middle back and sometimes even as high as my neck and shoulders. I generally felt very weak, fatigued, and frustrated to be in that much pain at 24 years of age. My friends said that "I looked like a fish out of water" because I was squirming around wherever I was like a worm all the time. That type of chronic ailment was really beginning to substantially eat away at productivity, a social life, and a general sense of well being.
            The first thing I did was see the family doctor. The doctor sent me to a back specialist and we did MRI scans and the conclusion was that there were some disc issues in the lumbar region and consequently some arthritis as a result of it. He claimed there was no surgical operation worth doing at this point and I was then prescribed some painkillers, relaxants, and anti-inflammatory pills in conjunction with a course of physical therapy. I went ahead and did what the doctor said, however, my back was only getting worse. The painkillers, of course, never felt like a good thing, and my back muscles were just getting tighter and tighter as physical therapy didn't seem to soothe it at all. This stage of treatment lasted for about a year and was a complete failure.
            Then one day, in some sort of last stand, I decided to try out acupuncture. Some of my Chinese classmates had recommended it and I heard a great program on NPR about it a few days later (for the "scientifically" skeptic there has been found some very substantial proof that acupuncture triggers some type of chemical process in the body associated with pain reduction - I read it on the WSJ online and I'm sure you can google it). I went into treatment not knowing what to expect but hoped for the best. 
            During the first treatment I felt some general relief. The whole process was relaxing, personal, and professional. The feeling of the needles is hard to describe but here is my best shot: imagine someone massaging your back and pushing down hard on a muscle with their knuckle on a pressure point. Now take the surface area of the knuckle and concentrate it by 10,000 times and then take the knuckle and put it inside of the muscle instead of on top of it - kind of feels like you are getting massaged in a place that no man's hands can possibly reach. It did a great deal to loosen me up and I decided to start coming in more frequently. Acupuncture does not try to save the day like a big surgery does, but over time, my back would slowly begin to strengthen and experience less pain between visits. Hung-yuan and I began to see a noticeable improvement in my back. "It looks like a different back" is what he told me and it was clearly noticeable on both ends. It had softened from a brick to something that felt more like usual muscle and at that point I decided to pursue physical therapy again. For 2 more months, I continued both acupuncture and physical therapy and they complimented each other extremely well. Acupuncture would alleviate the stresses of therapy and therapy would enforce pain resilience being gained from acupuncture. I finally started to enter a healing cycle. I now work long hours sitting in an office chair with relatively little pain. I'm still in the healing process and can with confidence look at myself in the mirror and think "Thank you Hung-yuan - I don't think I could have ever imagined being this healthy from where I was 4 months ago without you." ~R.F.

DEBILITATING MIGRAINES

“Hung-yuan and the acupuncture treatments have given my life back. I feel better than I have in years. I have suffered from debilitating migraines for over 15 years that have gotten worse as I get older. I have tried countless drugs that either did not work or left me with horrible side effects. The drug that I took when I got a migraine would leave me tired with no energy. I was getting so many headaches that it was a never ending vicious cycle of 5 day long migraines with a few days in between with no headache but the "migraine hangover." Thanks to Hung-yuan and the acupuncture treatments, we have broken that cycle. Right now I am at 17 days migraine free and the one migraine that I have had since beginning acupuncture was definitely hormonally based.
            Thank you Hung-yuan for giving me my life back! I am having fun and enjoying life again!”         ~L.K.

MIGRAINE HEADACHE/DIGESTIVE ISSUES

“Timeless Acupuncture was there for me when I felt there was no remedy for the headaches I have been suffering from for several years. These  headaches related to hormone imbalance (we think) have gotten progressively more debilitating over the past several years, but the first day I visited the Cheng's I had had an especially bad headache, that just wouldn't go away for 5 weeks. I couldn't shake it. I was amazed to feel so much relief after my first visit! I had anticipated that it would take at least 3 visits to get this headache unlocked.
            Prior to seeing Hung-yuan I had visited my primary care physician several times and worked with a neurologist who gave me all kinds of medicines that I feel were poisoning my system. I felt worse and worse and needed some help.
            For my headaches, I have found that I need a treatment at least every 2 to 3 weeks to stay balanced and occasionally when I have a really bad pain if I catch it quickly enough I can get relief rather quickly.  Before I visited Timeless Acupuncture I was getting 3 or 4 headaches a week and now I can go for a week or more without pain.
            In addition, I was treated after I returned from a trip outside the country and had picked up a bad stomach bug, nothing over the counter was working and I lost 12 pounds. I was back to my old self by the next day and my system was entirely healed by the end of that week with no traditional meds. I didn't need anything but acupuncture and herbs.
            I have recommended the Cheng's clinic to many friends and have been very pleased with the care I have received there. Thank you Timeless Acupuncture!”         ~M.P.

ONE-SIDED HEADACHE/KNEE PAIN

 “I first came to Timeless Acupuncture for my severe daily one-sided headaches.  These headaches affected my everyday living. After a few treatments my headaches dramatically improved.  I no longer suffer from these severe headaches.  I later mentioned my chronic knee pain to my acupuncturist which he began to treat.  Due to structural abnormality we were able to minimize pain level and I no longer have knee pain on most days and am able to tolerate more exercise.  I have referred my clients to Wendy and Hung-yuan.  I am very satisfied at the results that I received from Timeless Acupuncture.”  ~A.M.

MIGRAINES/PELVIC PAIN DURING PREGNANCY

 “I wanted to write to tell of my experience with acupuncture at Timeless Acupuncture.  I have been coming to Hung-yuan Cheng for acupuncture for about the last 6 months.  I am currently in my last few weeks of pregnancy, during that time acupuncture has made a huge difference to my state of health.  I am a chronic migraine sufferer and was having 3-4 migraines a week prior to coming to receive acupuncture.  Once I began treatment here, my migraines went down in level of pain as well as frequency.  While being treated here, I also began having sciatic pain, due to pregnancy, that Hung-yuan Cheng was able to completely relieve after one or two visits.  I find that acupuncture works great combined with Western Medicine.  I would definitely recommend Timeless Acupuncture to anyone that is unhappy with their current health situation or needs a medication/surgery free way to treat a particular illness.  I have referred several people including family members that are also very happy with the treatment that they have received.”          ~B.P.

SHOULDER PAIN

“I first came to Timeless Acupuncture in May 2011 to seek treatment for nagging shoulder pain.  The pain had been around for at least two years and was affecting my daily activities--I couldn't reach with my left arm, or move it suddenly or sharply.  Even sleeping on my left side was painful. 
I had been curious about acupuncture for several years, and I also had heard horror stories about painful recuperation from shoulder surgery.  Luckily, soon after my pain was getting too bad to ignore, I saw a recommendation for Timeless Acupuncture in the reader comments section of an article on the News and Observer's website (can't even remember what the article was about!), and I also overheard a woman at my church talking about how good her experience had been there.  I decided to at least try this method first, before submitting to the usual xrays and Western medicine.  And I am so glad I did.  Hung-yuan treated me once a week for 4 weeks, and I saw significant improvement in my range of motion after just one appointment.  The treatment is not painful at all--I could barely feel the needles going in--and also includes some time to just lie there and relax.
On the morning of my fourth appointment, I woke up with body aches and a 100 degree fever.  I wanted to stay in bed, but I forced myself to keep my appointment with Hung-yuan because I had a feeling he could help me.  He treated me and I was back to normal after two days--probably much sooner than I would have been. 
My shoulder is much better now and I'm back to doing my normal activities, including swimming laps.  Thank you, Hung-yuan, for showing me firsthand how effective this type of medicine is!”                        ~A.M.

SHOULDER PAIN

“I was experiencing moderate to severe shoulder pain and loss of mobility for about five months when my wife suggested acupuncture.  We were about to take a vacation that included some kayaking and considered cancelling that part of the trip.  My first visit to Timeless Acupuncture was productive, resulting in some improved mobility and range of motion.  I also experience lower back pain and that was addressed as well.  After four sessions, I had significant improvement in both the shoulder and back pain.  We kept the plans for the kayak trip and I enjoyed a relatively pain free day despite the movement.  It has now been about six months and the range of motion is greatly improved and there is much less pain.  My level of patient satisfaction is high and I would recommend Timeless Acupuncture without reservation.  I have already encouraged several people to pursue this form of treatment.”            ~G.A.

ROTATOR CUFF TEAR

“A simple thank you is just not enough for what Hung-yuan has done for me.  I had a torn rotator cuff in my right shoulder and the pain was constant and severe.  My surgeon would not operate because he said I was too old and it would not work.  A friend told me about her experience at Timeless Acupuncture and I decided, what can I lose?  I contacted them and Hung-yuan told me he could help me with the pain.  After five treatments, I am pain free.  That's bordering on being a miracle.  One of the best things that happened to me during my visits, Hung-yuan and Wendy became my friends.  I am recommending them to all my friends who need help.”    ~J.B. 

SPORTS INJURY (SHOULDER)

“Coming from a family that has a background in western medicine, I was looking to find an alternative approach to help heal some of my problems.  Having been to another acupuncturist originally who was very pushy and made it seem that It would take 5 to 10 appointments to find relief I was refreshed to have found Timeless Acupuncture.  Hung-yuan and Wendy were very friendly and honest in the approach to help me with my problems.  They answered all of my questions directly and were very upfront about what they could offer.  The help I was seeking was relief and help in the rehab of my shoulder.  Having 2 slap tears and a nagging cyst in my shoulder I was told that I would either need surgery or an arduous rehabilitation program.  I had already had dealt with the knife in a previous injury and was very reluctant to do so knowing that it was potentially a hit or miss chance of success for my shoulder with the surgery.
            Taking the long road to naturally rehabilitate my shoulder was difficult at first.  Acupuncture was a great aid in allowing my shoulder to heal faster.  I had to do many exercises and my shoulder would get tight and the rehab became frustrating due to the overcompensation of some of the muscles and tendons were doing to stabilize my shoulder.  With the help of acupuncture, I was able to get the pain relief and the opening of blood flow to my shoulder so that it could heal.  As of now I am back to 90% activeness with the potential to only get stronger.  I would have to say without acupuncture I may have ended up possibly taking surgery eventually. With the success and friendships that I have developed at Timeless Acupuncture I have recommended my friends and family to find relief for some of the aches and pains of their lives.  It is great to know that acupuncture and the knowledge of the people at Timeless can help you actually find the causes of your problems instead of going to a doctor who just recommends a medicine that covers up the symptoms.”          ~D.M.

SCOLIOSIS/BACK PAIN/SHOULDER PAIN

“When I was thirteen years old, I underwent scoliosis back surgery and have had lower back discomfort and shoulder pain ever since. Over the next few years, the pain would come and go, but as time passed, the pain got worse and came more frequently until it wouldn't go away anymore. I tried many different treatments such as massages and chiropractic visits, but the pain relief only lasted about two or three days at most. When I first came to Timeless, my left shoulder was hurting very badly and I couldn't stand or sit for very long without constant lower back pain. Now, after about six months of treatment, my lower back rarely hurts and I am able to remain shoulder-pain free for a little over two weeks at a time. Thank you, Timeless, for helping me manage my pain!”          ~V.C.

TOE PAIN

“I was referred to Timeless Acupuncture by my physician.  I was experiencing toe pain that wasn't structural, and my internist thought I would benefit from acupuncture.  I had never had acupuncture before, but Hung-yuan explained the process to me and put me at ease.  I started going once a week for a couple of months, and then went every other week.  I experienced a definite improvement after about three weeks.  My appointments were an hour each time and I felt relaxed and calm during the procedure.  The acupuncture made a definite difference in my life and I'm practically pain-free!  I would definitely consider acupuncture again, and I would definitely go back to Timeless Acupuncture.  Thank you so much!”           ~M.R.

SPORTS ENHANCEMENT/MORTON'S NEUROMA/FOOT PAIN

“In 2007, I began to have severe foot pain aggravated by running.  At that time, I saw an orthopedic doctor who made me stop ALL exercise for 6 weeks and spend a great deal of money on orthotics.  My foot was better for less than one year, so when the problem began again I decided to try Timeless Acupuncture. The day I entered for the first treatment, my foot hurt to simply press on the gas pedal of the car.  After a little more than one hour of treatment, I was walking barefoot around the office.  I was told that I should not run the following day, but could go back to my normal schedule the day after that.  I jokingly asked if the doctor could make me run fast enough to win races.  Unbeknownst to me, he began to treat me for endurance and speed. Less than 2 months later, I won first place overall for 2 different 5K races!  My pain is completely gone and my speed has increased.  Not only does Timeless Acupuncture do an excellent job treating ailments, they also show sincere interest in the well-being of patients. They consistently go the extra mile to meet the needs of patients. They have even given me recommendations for other family members who live too far away to visit here. I have and will continue to recommend Timeless Acupuncture to all of my friends for their superior care and concern for patients.”        ~K.C.

INSOMNIA

“After months of sleepless nights Timeless Acupuncture has given me the gift of a full night’s rest.  While my sessions over the last few months have been focused on sleep, other health issues have improved as an additional benefit.
            My life has been improved significantly since having acupuncture.  I am able to fall asleep, stay asleep and have had increased quality of life.  My husband is also very happy with the results since he was being kept up because of my poor sleeping.
            The professionalism and expertise of Hung-yuan and Wendy have made me very comfortable in referring family and friends to Timeless Acupuncture.  I highly recommend Timeless Acupuncture to anyone who is considering acupuncture treatments.
            Timeless Acupuncture has been a wonderful support for my overall well-being.  The environment is inviting and relaxing.  Even though I was already a healthy person, Timeless Acupuncture has helped me feel the very best that I can: balanced, peaceful and generally the best I have in a while. I feel very comfortable going to either practitioner with any problem or concern.”         ~S.I.

PROSTATITIS/SPORTS INJURY/PLANTAR FASCIITIS

“About two years ago I was diagnosed with a prostate condition called Prostatitis. My P.S.A. was high and getting higher and the urologist what talking about various drugs and even surgery to control the problem. I did not like the way things were going and so I decided to try acupuncture and Chinese medicine. After six months of treatment at two week intervals, all my symptoms were greatly reduced and my P.S.A. was cut in half. Even the urologist thought that this was a remarkable turn-around.
            Additionally, over the course of treatment I began to suffer with a sports injury called Plantar Fasciitis. Some of my tennis friends have had this problem and had undergone surgery. One guy suffered with it for 13 months. After three acupuncture treatments I was totally pain free.”  ~M.K.

PREGNANCY

“I wanted to share some thoughts about my experience with you:  We were interested in having a second child and decided to utilize acupuncture as an additional approach to conceiving.  Wendy was wonderful to work with.  She was extremely professional and caring and really strived to understand me as a whole person and not just a particular ailment.  As a result, we are about to have our second child any day.  I also felt a sense of extreme relaxation after each acupuncture session with Wendy.  Since my sessions, I have continued to feel good inside and out and plan to utilize acupuncture for future needs.  I would highly recommend Timeless Acupuncture to all my friends and family as I think they are excellent.
            Wendy, thank you again for everything!”            ~C.Z.C.

PREGNANCY/PREVENT MISCARRIAGE/ANXIETY/DEPRESSION

“I came to the clinic after experiencing a miscarriage at about 10 weeks of pregnancy. A friend suggested acupuncture in order to prepare my body to try to get pregnant again. Even though I am 39 and have fibroids and abnormal cycles, I was able to get pregnant again within a few months. I believe that is in large part to the acupuncture, which also helped me with anxiety and depression during that period. I continued to see Wendy to help with preventing a second miscarriage. I am now 8 ½ months pregnant and looking forward to meeting my first child. In my third trimester, acupuncture is helping me relieve indigestion and back pain. 
            Wendy has been wonderful and has also helped me with joint pain in my hip from exercise. I recommend Timeless Acupuncture highly.”       ~K.P.

PREGNANCY/MORNING SICKNESS

“I tried acupuncture for the first time at Timeless Acupuncture during my first trimester of pregnancy.  I was experiencing a lot of nausea which lasted all day, everyday.  I found the experience overall to be better than I had expected.  The ambiance was very peaceful and soothing.  I was not expecting to be able to lie down for 30 minutes as music played and a heating lamp kept me warm.  I was so relaxed once that I ended up falling asleep.  I never felt uncomfortable during any of the sessions.  After each session, my nausea and vomiting decreased.  I was vomiting every morning the week before acupuncture, and after the first session the frequency of vomiting decreased dramatically.  I felt more energized and rejuvenated after my sessions.  I would absolutely refer friends and family to timeless acupuncture.  The professionalism and kindness shown to me was enough to keep me going back for more sessions, even if I was not seeing any results from the acupuncture.  Thanks so much!”  ~J.S.

MIGRAINES/PELVIC PAIN DURING PREGNANCY

 “I wanted to write to tell of my experience with acupuncture at Timeless Acupuncture.  I have been coming to Hung-yuan Cheng for acupuncture for about the last 6 months.  I am currently in my last few weeks of pregnancy, during that time acupuncture has made a huge difference to my state of health.  I am a chronic migraine sufferer and was having 3-4 migraines a week prior to coming to receive acupuncture.  Once I began treatment here, my migraines went down in level of pain as well as frequency.  While being treated here, I also began having sciatic pain, due to pregnancy, that Hung-yuan Cheng was able to completely relieve after one or two visits.  I find that acupuncture works great combined with Western Medicine.  I would definitely recommend Timeless Acupuncture to anyone that is unhappy with their current health situation or needs a medication/surgery free way to treat a particular illness.  I have referred several people including family members that are also very happy with the treatment that they have received.”          ~B.P.

INFERTILITY/PREGNANCY

“I was referred to Wendy by a friend of mine.  She also went to Wendy for infertility and had great success.  My husband and I tried for the last year and were getting frustrated.  I came to Wendy in April 2009 and after 5 months of weekly treatments I was pregnant!  My husband and I cannot thank Wendy more for her caring manner and professionalism.  We are now proud parents of a wonderful daughter.  Thank you Timeless Acupuncture!”         ~C.C.

ONE-SIDED HEADACHE/KNEE PAIN

 “I first came to Timeless Acupuncture for my severe daily one-sided headaches.  These headaches affected my everyday living. After a few treatments my headaches dramatically improved.  I no longer suffer from these severe headaches.  I later mentioned my chronic knee pain to my acupuncturist which he began to treat.  Due to structural abnormality we were able to minimize pain level and I no longer have knee pain on most days and am able to tolerate more exercise.  I have referred my clients to Wendy and Hung-yuan.  I am very satisfied at the results that I received from Timeless Acupuncture.”  ~A.M.

TMJ/KIDNEY CANCER/DIABETES/KNEE PAIN

“I have been seeing Wendy for about 1½ years now.  When I started with her, I had several different issues going on.  I had sinus surgery, and was experiencing a lot of complications, including migraines, facial pain, and chronic fatigue, and I now have a definite diagnosis of TMJ.  Wendy has been fantastic.  She has listened to me, when no other doctor would take the time to.  She understands the pain I have been in and continues to go above and beyond helping me.  Since starting, I have most of my energy restored, I sleep better at night, and we are continuing making progress with the TMJ.  A few months ago, my husband, who had kidney cancer surgery last year, started seeing Hung-yuan.  My husband also had mono and was diagnosed with diabetes.  Hung-yuan has helped him tremendously.  His energy is so much better and his blood sugar has been staying regulated with no medication.  He has also helped him with his knee problem.  We are both extremely pleased with both Hung-yuan and Wendy and would recommend them to all our friends and family.  They are truly caring and dedicated to helping their clients.”                      ~P.R.

LUNG CANCER

“I was recommended to Timeless Acupuncture by my oncologist. After a year of living with Lung Cancer I started having pain in my legs. I was reluctant to start narcotic pain therapy as I needed to remain alert to function at work. After the first visit, I found relief. Hung-yuan listened respectfully to my symptoms and discomforts and then addressed them. Even after starting medicinal pain therapy, his treatments were the only ones to provide me with any relief or comfort. Hung-yuan was the first to mention issues that may be present in my spine. The doctors and hospital concurred with his diagnosis every time. Timeless Acupuncture has provided a very professional experience while making my visits personal and warm. I never felt any pain or discomfort. The relief was immediate. Family and coworkers noticed a distinct difference in my step as soon as I left the Timeless office. I would recommend Timeless Acupuncture to others looking for alternative methods of pain relief.”   ~T.S.

INFERTILITY/IBS

“In Dec. of 2008 I was referred to Wendy and Hung-yuan at Timeless Acupuncture by a close friend.  I was suffering from IBS and anovulation and read that acupuncture was a safe and natural way to deal with these issues. I had never done anything like this before so I was a little nervous at my first appointment. I was pleasantly surprised with my first experience with acupuncture.  Hung-yuan and Wendy were so kind and understanding.  They made me feel comfortable with my decision and were very supportive! I looked forward to coming back and working towards balancing my body.
            Throughout the next six months I visited Wendy quite frequently.  My IBS did improve but I had to be more patient with my ovaries.  I had been on birth control for many years so balancing this part of my body was a little more difficult.  Wendy continued to be supportive and tried several different approaches through acupuncture.  I always left feeling less stressed and relaxed. In July of 2009 I found out I was pregnant! My doctor even seemed surprised since I had shown no sign of ovulating. I really believe that by going to acupuncture my stress levels were reduced and I was able to let my body get back to its normal and working state.  Acupuncture is definitely a better option than medication and it does wonderful things for the mind and body!  I highly recommend it to everyone I know! I am very thankful for the effort, support, and friendship at Timeless Acupuncture!”           ~M.D.

WOMEN'S HEALTH/DIGESTIVE ISSUES/PAIN

“I started going to Timeless Acupuncture as a last resort.  I was suffering from Lymphocytic Colitis, Fructose Intolerance, SIBO and severe back pain.  I truly thought "what do I have to lose?"  Well, I feel better than I have in years.  Not only have my digestive and back problems eased, but my night sweats and hot flashes, insomnia and anxiety issues have disappeared even though I've come off hormone replacement therapy and anxiety meds!   I'm amazed. 
            Hung-yuan is truly an "honest" gentleman and really wants to help.  If he doesn't think he can help, he'll tell you.  He also has a way of making you feel very comfortable, even when you have to stick out your tongue, weird right. 
Thanks Hung-yuan.”           ~K.Y.
