Long Beach, CA - June 21, 2018


I work a fairly stressful job as well as have had quite a few bodily injuries from 40+ year of hard work, cycling, and surfing. Over the years I went through acupuncturists / chiropractors like Skittles in my search for one that could treat my body to my satisfaction.

Than in late 2016 I had an old neck/shoulder injury flair up on Thanksgiving. Over the course of the next week I lost almost 50% of the strength in my left arm and was freaking out (I went from doing 200 push-ups every morning to not even able to do 20). At that point my regular doctor and their specialists all recommended surgery. I wanted some other solution to their recommendations because I knew if I could just get that neck/shoulder area some relief I could beat the odds again and go back to doing the things in life that I enjoy. So I immediately went online and to my surprise found out there was an acupuncturist a ½ mile from my house.

When I contacted Ping Chao her receptionist was very understanding but said the schedule was heavily booked. However, when Ping was informed of my situation she worked to fit me into her schedule the very next day and relief was almost instant. Within 2 weeks almost all of my strength had returned and the pain had subsided. I was back in the water and on my bike daily. Since those initial treatments with her, the majority of that particular issue has gone away.

Following our initial introductions in 2016, Ping has continued to help me treat; several other new and old injuries, stress headaches, sleep issues, intestinal and digestion issues, overall body circulation / balance, cold / flu symptoms, as well as gotten me completely off of over the counter and prescription medications with her herbal medicines.

Overall, I feel better now than I have for quite a number of years. In fact, I didn’t realize how much discomfort I had adjusted to living with. I always suffered from bodily injuries because of the lifestyle I chose but I now believe Ping is absolutely the best at keeping me going. She is amazing and her overall knowledge is unrivaled. It’s not just her knowledge though as it’s her friendly, calming bedside manner and genuine caring that sets her above all the rest. She has gone above and beyond to help me feel right again and that kind of service money can’t buy. I don’t hesitate to recommend her to others when they have issues because I truly believe in her and her practices. I usually get treated weekly, always look forward to my sessions with her, and am honored to call myself one of her regular patients.

Oh and by the way, her deep tissue massage girl, there on Monday’s only, is absolutely amazing.

As an individual with Cerebral Palsy I often have severe muscle tension and pain related to repetitive trauma in various joints. My experience w/ Dr Chao has been greatly successful in relieving pain, restoring range of motion and full function. Her skills knowledge and abilities in the practice of CM is extensive and she has a comprehensive approach to treatment that certainly benefitted my recovery. She is a very nice person and maintains a serene comfortable and friendly office environment. If you choose Ping Chao as your provider you have made the correct choice.

Just wanted to update you on my successful hip surgery. After 12 days, I went back to work. Yesterday was my first time walking without a cane. All Physical Therapists stated I was ahead of normal recovery. My hands and feet are cured of the psoriasis since no pain and no more drugs!! I am so happy and feel like I have a new leaf in life. Thank you for helping me when I was in such bad shape. Kisses to you all!!

Long Beach, CA - September 7, 2012

I was first diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in early 2003 and have been suffering from quite a few visible and non-visible symptoms. The main ones being spasticity down my right side of my body and chronic pain caused by it and chronic nerve pain in my lumbar area and a slight spastic gait.
I have gone to countless physiotherapy sessions and taken all available pain medication regimes and I was still in pain and discomfort. Muscle relaxing medication doesn't work too well for me either.

I have been going to see Dr. Chao for just a few sessions and there has already been a significant change in the spasticity and pain especially in my upper back where the pain and tightness has driven me mad for years. At last the muscles have started to relax and the pain is getting less and less.
I have also noticed an improvement in my walking speed and in the muscle tone in my lower leg.

The nerve pain in my lumbar area is getting to a more tolerable level and a few muscle tremors and twitches have calmed down too.

The combination of acupuncture, herbs and of course the hands (and elbows) of Dr. Chao are what my body has been needing and I look forward to every visit.

I can't thank you enough, Dr.Chao,for what you have already achieved with me.

J’ai été chanceux de trouver Mme Chao une acupunctrice accomplie. Mme Chao tiens plusieurs degrés Universitaire; en Californie et dans trois pays de l’Orient. Avec un accueil chaleureux Mme Choa écoute avec attention ce que vous avez à dire. La raison est de donner le traitement le plus effectif pour améliorer votre bien être. Aussi tôt que Mme Chao commence le traitement, son attention est porté à placer les aiguilles aux points nécessaires pour le traitement du jour. J’ai profité des traitements. Je suis actuellement plus actif, social, et énergétique.

Merci Beaucoup Mme Chao.
