How acupuncture can help you age gracefully

“Now in my mid-fifties, I came to the Tao Clinic of Acupuncture because I wanted to do something more for my health and well-being than just my regular gym workouts and annual physical, and I had heard wonderful things about Dr. Yang. I had recently finished an exciting but stressful four-year film project, and Dr. Yang first suggested that we focus on reducing my anxiety and stress level; following his proposal of dietary changes and supplements, I felt much calmer. I also started a series of acupuncture treatments that immediately alleviate a sinus problem, and gave me more energy. And I discovered an unexpected “bonus” when friends began telling me my skin was glowing and I looked younger. I’m so pleased with how the acupuncture treatments with Dr. Yang and Jaesun Yoo have improved my facial skin tone that I’ve discontinued my usual quarterly visits to the dermatologist for botox and fillers. It has been a wonderful, mind-opening experience and an important step towards healthy aging.”
