I have been a patient of Dr Park for approximately 5 weeks and I cannot be more please with the results. I original came to Acupuncture Park for what I thought was Carpel Tunnel Syndrome but was quickly diagnoses as having a pinched nerve in my back. My hands were burning and numb and after one treatment I immediately felt significant results. Also, the treatments have also helped with my anxiety as I no longer need to take daily meds! I was very skeptical in the beginning but this alternative medicine definitely works. Thank you Dr. Park

I am so happy to have found Mr. Park. I have had irregular menses for 17 years and menorrhagia for the past 8 years... My periods normally last 1-3 months and are super heavy, ... I no longer have a heavy cycles. Conventional treatment was not working for me and made it worse.The length of my cycles are shorter as well.
I am so happy to have found Mr. Park. I have had irregular menses for 17 years and menorrhagia for the past 8 years. It was so bad that I could not leave the house for months. So me working in my professions as a Surgical Technician and Massage Therapist was hard to do. I would have to leave jobs because my period was starting. I started seeing Mr. Park summer of 2014 and in the Fall of 2014, I was offered a traveling surgical contract. I took the job and my cycle came on. I was so paranoid and thought I would have to end my contract. Excited to say, it was a shorter, lighter, and more manageable cycle. I didn't need to stay home, because of a profusely heavy and extended cycle. My periods normally last 1-3 months and are super heavy, to the point I once had to get a blood transfusion. I no longer have a heavy cycles. Conventional treatment was not working for me and made it worse.The length of my cycles are shorter as well. I am ecstatic about this.
I began acupuncture ... had seven treatments. The pain disappeared, and the condition resolved.... My physician prescribed a muscle relaxant and stretching exercises. This helped some, but the pain was not resolved.Park has performed 4 acupuncture treatments, and the leg is better. There is no pain.
Park Acupuncture requested a testimonial about the services provided to me.Park has performed acupuncture successfully for two conditions since 2014.I first went to Park last year to address a severe case of tennis elbow, aka lateral epicondilitis. This condition first appeared in September of 2013 and was treated by an orthopedic surgeon with cortisone and anti-inflammatory medication (Celebrex), along with occupational therapy. There was minimal improvement, and in fact the pain reappeared in February of 2014. This is a common problem, afflicting athletes and people in occupations with a lot of repetitive use of the arm. In February 2014 an MRI was performed, with a diagnosis of "severe lateral epicondilitis". I began acupuncture in late February or early March of 2014, and had seven treatments. The pain disappeared, and the condition resolved. I played tennis three times a week last summer and fall, and also have lots of activity including gardening and house projects. There has been no pain to speak of.This year Park has treated me for pain of the thigh and lower leg. It was an unusual problem, in which most of the pain occurred during the middle of the night. My physician prescribed a muscle relaxant and stretching exercises. This helped some, but the pain was not resolved. Park has performed 4 acupuncture treatments, and the leg is better. There is no pain.I will consider acupuncture again if other problems appear, and have full confidence that Park can help me if standard medical therapy does not work. Park has always been honest with me about the chance for a successful outcome, which he will not promise. His acupuncture has worked for me. In the case of the tennis elbow, it was so bad that I was considering surgery. This was avoided. My insurance does not pay for acupuncture, but I consider it a worthwhile investment. Not only is there relief (which doctors had not been able to provide), but I have avoided the high cost of deductible and copayments that would have been required for surgery. Not to mention the discomfort, inconvenience, and expense.
Acupuncture treatments with you for my Plantar Fasciitis in both feet have given me the best and fastest results. I highly recommend you to anyone suffering with this very painful condition.
Dr. Park,Thank you for all of your help with my painful Plantar Fasciitis in both feet. I was under the care of a foot & ankle doctor for several months in 2014 and was given shoe inserts, exercises, shin splints, and cortisone shots. My pain never fully went away and eventually it fully returned.When I contacted you, my Plantar Fasciitis was so bad that I could not get up from bed and walk in the morning. The pain had caused me to limp around if I had to frequently walk or stand. Especially at work. At night the pain would bother me when I tried to sleep.Since I began acupuncture treatments with you on October 5, 2014 my pain has significantly decreased. I can get up from bed and immediately walk without thinking about it. I am able to walk and stand longer without any significant pain. At night when I try to sleep there is no significant pain for me to deal with. On November 7, 2014 I attended my cousins wedding and was able to dance in high heels for the first time in years without any pain. It was amazing!Acupuncture treatments with you for my Plantar Fasciitis in both feet have given me the best and fastest results. I highly recommend you to anyone suffering with this very painful condition.

Had a high degree of pain in the right side of my neck.. After, several visits, I am able to turn to the right and I have no pain in both my neck and knees. Plus, I am sleeping much better.
Had a high degree of pain in the right side of my neck, which prevented me from turning to my right without discomfort and caused headaches and sleepiness; also, I had discomfort in both knees. After, receiving acupuncture from Dr. Park, I noticed the pain has subsided both in my neck and knees. After, several visits, I am able to turn to the right and I have no pain in both my neck and knees. Plus, I am sleeping much better. I would highly recommend Dr. Parks to anyone who is experiencing pain anywhere in the body.
Thank you, Dr. Park
My eyes are less red, some days they are white, no more headaches, a lot less eye pressure...
I was diagnosed with severe Glaucoma. My eyes were very red, I had painful pressure in my eyes. I would have to put ice on my eyes some nights. I had frequent headaches as well.
Since I have been getting Acupuncture at Acupuncture Park, I feel a lot better. My eyes are less red, some days they are white, no more headaches, a lot less eye pressure. I haven?t had to use ice. I feel much better. My goal is to keep my eyes from getting any worse without a lot of harmful medications and surgery. And hopefully improve my vision as well.
Insung Park is a very knowledgeable and professional Acupuncturist. I am glad my wife found him and we switched acupuncturists. I am having better results and my sessions are very relaxing. Thanks for your help.
... ganglion cyst on the outside of my ankle for over a year...Thanks to Insung it is almost gone.. I also suffer from amenorrhea and after going to acupuncture ... my period has returned!
I?ve had a ganglion cyst on the outside of my ankle for over a year from putting too much stress on it during my distance running training. The cyst was about the size of a golf ball. Thanks to Insung it is almost gone and down to the size of a pea! The only other way to get rid of it was by having it drained or getting surgery with the risk of it returning. I?m glad the acupuncture has worked! I also suffer from amenorrhea and after going to acupuncture and taking herbal medication my period has returned! Insung is very patient, caring, and knowledgeable. I would recommend acupuncture and the expertise of Insung to anyone who is having these same problems. Thanks Insung!
My headaches used to be about 8/10-10/10
on a pain and now
they are a 1/10..
I have had three acupuncture treatments so far with Mr. Park. I came for acupuncture as an alternative form of treatment for my headaches and eye strain primarily. I found it hard to concentrate, read, and it was affecting my emotional well being - I became anxious and depressed over it. I was worried that the process would hurt, and I am a nurse so I am good with needles but nonetheless, I was apprehensive - but it really doesn't hurt! At times I feel a little pinch and then it goes away, and Mr. Park checks in on my during my treatment and asks how I am feeling and if any needle is bothering me - he taught me that a heavy pressure if normal and good because it indicates that the energy is flowing and becoming unblocked (and if it feels sharp, then he removes the needle). The entire experience is actually very relaxing, nice music is playing in the background, you can place a sand bag over your eyes and fall asleep and forget about your worries. Regarding my headaches and eye pain, I already feel SIGNIFICANTLY better - and with that - my eye pain/strain has gotten much better as well. I can study and read again with hardly any issue. I do still continue to be treated by Mr. Park, so I am sure by the completion of all my sessions, I will feel completely better, physically and emotionally. Mr. Park is very kind, attentive, and really listens and cares for his patients, I would highly recommend him.
After 2 visits to Mr. Park I felt significant relief and after the third visit I was able to walk almost without discomfort.
Mr Park was highly recommended to me through a family member. My problem is chronic lower back pain and Sciatica. I have visited several doctors of various specialties who handed me scripts for multiple types of pain pills that clouded my brain but did nothing for the pain. After 2 visits to Mr. Park I felt significant relief and after the third visit I was able to walk almost without discomfort. This is incredible results since I have been suffering for almost seven years. I have been to other acupuncturists in the past with much poorer results. Also, Mr. Park has a very light hand with the needles which was a welcome relief for me since I'm not very brave in that department. His prices are competitive with a discount for seniors.
... after just 2 visits i can feel the difference in my body . My back and shoulder muscles are much more relaxed and the pain is not as intense or frequent as it used to be.
I have had chronic back problems for the past 3 years, and have exhausted every mean i had to relieve the pain without getting surgery. I tried stretching, massage, weight training. nothing really seemed to work. i decided to try acupuncture therapy seeing it was the one thing i had not tried consistently. I had it done once about 8 years ago. So i called Dr.Park and set up an appointment. I can honestly say that after just 2 visits i can feel the difference in my body . My back and shoulder muscles are much more relaxed and the pain is not as intense or frequent as it used to be. I would most definitely refer Dr.Park and his talents to help relieve your pain.
... joint pains, extreme fatigue to swelling and numbness to most of my extremities ... developed extreme anxiety
(I'm very happy to say that after only two weeks of treatments I am experiencing great improvement.)
I am a 42 year old woman dealing with multiple autoimmune ailments. I have battled with ulcerative colitis for the past 21 years and as of a year ago I was diagnosed with mixed connective tissue disorder. (MCTD) involves symptoms that range from joint pains, extreme fatigue to swelling and numbness to most of my extremities. The last year was particularly difficult physically but most of all mentally. I developed extreme anxiety which led to a fear of driving and thus really interfered with my every day life. I am already on lots of medications and I really did no want to add anymore to my daily regimen, so it was then that I decided on acupuncture as an alternative medicine to help with all of my problems.
I'm very happy to say that after only two weeks of treatments I am experiencing great improvement. My lower back pain is almost non existing, the numbness and pain on my arms has decreased by 50% and most important my anxiety has really improved tremendously. I'm proud to say that after only 4 treatments with Mr. Park, I'm now driving again and I feel much calmer in general.
I look forward to my treatments, I feel that the combination of acupuncture and the herbs that he recommended are having a positive impact and I am liking the outcome. Hopefully I will attain my goal of weaning off all meds very soon. I recommend this painless and most relaxing alternative medicine to everyone.
Suffering from Migraine
headaches, Sinus infections,
Allergies, & severe back pain
(After my first two visits I no longer experienced the migraines and have barely had a headache since then)
Patient since Winter 2012
Suffering from Migraine headaches, Sinus infections, Allergies, and severe back pain.
I am a twenty eight year old girl and I started going to Dr. Park because I was suffering from extreme migraines.
I had tried going to a chiropractor, general doctor and physical therapy. The migraines had not gone away at all and the back pain was marginally better but still an issue. After my first two visits I no longer experienced the migraines and have barely had a headache since then.
I have been going to Dr. Park about a 3 months already and I see a huge improvement in my health mentally and physically.
My back pain has decreased significantly and he has been helping me with my allergy symptoms, which have been severely extreme this year. I look forward to seeing how I will feel after my treatment is completed. I recommend Dr. Park to everyone he is very professional and caring to all his patients. I know many people are initially scared of experiencing pain with acupuncture but I haven't never experienced any pain and if fact I have two tattoos which hurt much worse than acupuncture ever has. On a scale of 1-10 pain with acupuncture is less than a 2 and my tattoos were about 8. The tiny bit of pain is nothing compared to the vast improvement I have seen in my health since beginning treatment with Dr. Park.

Back and shoulder pain
I just need to say that the acupuncture treatment from Dr. Park has made my shoulder n back pain disappear with only about 5 or 6 visits. I believe this treatment is much better than any doctors drugs that were prescribed in the past. And currently Doctor Park is working on another issue that seems to be working also. There is something to be said for the medical treatment of acupuncture, I only wish I found it much sooner :) ............Carolyn M.

Low Back and Hip pain
Reduced 10 to 1 in one session
Would like to thank very much so Dr.Park for helping me with my lower back and hip pain. I had pain number 10 and has been lowered to 1 just after one session. His sessions are painless, very relaxing and truly balancing. Than you so much for your expertise as is much needed :)
I'm doing so well -you gave me back my quality of life. Than you!!
I'm sure I'll be coming back for a "tune up" in the near future.
I tried to write a testimonial, but I guess I have to be on Facebook
in order to do it, and I'm not on Facebook, and I really don't want to
be. If someone else can post it for me if I write it, well that would
work for me.
I think I'm boring everyone telling them what a wonderful, caring
healer you are. You are awesome!!
A painful swollen finger
that began after I had surgery..
Depression and anxiety,
I have been able to reduce gradually the amount of medication I take and eventually stop it completely
Earlier this year I started seeing Insung Park for a painful swollen finger that began after I had surgery. After getting significant relief using acupuncture, I asked Mr. Park if he could help with my depression and anxiety. With only a few visits, the condition improved markedly - farm more than I got from years of psychiatric medications. I have been able to reduce gradually the amount of medication I take and eventually stop it completely. I am feeling better than any time I can remember. My expectation is to maintain my well-being with continued treatment.
Mr. Park always takes time to listen to my troubles and ensures that the area being treated feels better. Acupuncture is an amazing, painless technique that truly works and Mr. Park is a natural healer. I highly recommend him to everyone, who just like me, is looking for real healing.
I have been suffering from too much fatigue, lower-back pain, body pain, headache, stress and sleeping problems.
My chronic lower back pain have always been severe.
Being a massage therapist is tough, I have been suffering from too much fatigue, body pain, headache, stress and sleeping problems. For many years, all I did to ease my pain is to take several kinds of pain killers and because of this, I feel like my body is getting immuned from the chemicals so now it's not effecting on my body like it used to. I tried taking over 5 different brands of pain killer but in the end, I still have to not double the dose i intake but triple it just to take effect. That's when I decided to give Dr. Park's acupuncture a try.
In just three sessions of his acupuncture, my chronic lower back and body pain have been better. My headaches became tolerable and now I feel like my body is able to recuperate my energy faster than before. Before, I used to sleep at 3-4am in the morning because of my sleeping problem, but now, I can manage to sleep before 11pm.
Dr. Park's acupuncture is really amazing. Now I don't have to drown myself with different kinds of painkillers, just his acupuncture once a week is enough for me:)
I was amazed that it didn't hurt at all!
For 6 years, I have been in so much pain every time my period comes.
At first I was hesitating on doing acupuncture because I am a little afraid of needles but when my mother took me to Dr. Park for the first time, I was amazed that it didn't hurt at all!
I'm an 18 y/o student suffering from an irregular menstruation cycle, severe dysmenorreah and many other PMS symptoms such as headaches, stress, anxiety, fatigue since the first time I've gotten my period. For 6 years, I have been in so much pain every time my period comes. There are countless of times where I have to be absent in school for 3 straight days just because of my situation. It really is very inconvenient and depressing that I have to miss many school activities which have put me into so much pressure to catch up the next few days I return school.
Thanks to Dr. Park that now, my menstruation is regular, my abdominal cramps are now tolerable and other PMS symptoms are gone! On top of that, my problem with constipation is now getting better.
My senior year of High School have been very busy but it wasn't as stressful as my Junior year because of the acupuncture Dr. Park had given me. Dr. Park's needles are really incredible, besides the fact that it makes my body healthy, his acupuncture let's my mind and body relax (which I was never able to do because of too much school activities) at the same time.
I recommend his herbal medicines too, they are very effective and they helped me ease my headaches and constipation.
I started the treatment with Mr. Park after watching the rapid progress my wife was experiencing.
One by one my symptoms was
vanishing after just a few sessions: anxiety, fatigue, poor sleep, my allergy and even a low back pain that was bothering me for the last
I recommend acupuncture for everyone, even for those that are afraid of needles, because it doesn't hurt at all. Mr. Park really masters his craft.
I chose a course in Acupuncture after a diagnosis of Lipo Sarcoma resulting in three surgeries which left me with a number of issues in which western medicine did not seem to help. As a result of beginning a course of acupuncture at Acupuncture Park to address pain, digressive problems and mental discouragement, I quickly saw the results. My mental attitude got much better, my digestive issues lessened, but most important the physical and mental pain began to mitigate. All this happens, because during your first visit Mr. Park takes the time to listen and evaluate your individual needs.
Postpartum problems, Breast infection, Beadaches and Chills.
2 weeks after giving birth to my 3rd child I developed very painful infection mastitis. I was put on antibiotics and pain medication and on day 3 I was still in so much pain I simply could not tolerate it anymore. This is when I decided to try acupuncture.
I was truly amazed how the soreness and pain has decreased. I felt a huge relief and the very first treatment made me very calm. In addition to acupuncture, I was given herbs for pain and for recovery after giving birth. I would highly recommend Insung Park as his acupuncture expertise can do wonders.

Headaches and Migraines
I sought out acupuncture treatment from Dr. Park because of chronic headaches and migraines and realized a huge improvement after only one session. Dr. Park is very thorough and professional and I highly recommend him.
Low back pain, Allergies, Cyst, Neuropathy in Legs and Sinus Headache
"I do not pretend to understand the method of acupuncture nor it's mystical
and wonderful results. I do know that it works and it has changed my life.
The pain I was experiencing, prior to going to Insung Park, was beyond explanation.
The 3 surgeries I had did nothing but increase the pain. The injections, that once gave me some relief, were no longer effective.
My life was limited to sitting in my recliner watching television.
I remember having tears in my eyes, from the pain in my back and the
shooting pains of neuropathy in my legs.
Within a few weeks of receiving acupuncture treatments from Insung, I experienced dramatic pain relief.
In addition to the relief of my back and leg pain he has also:
* Reduced a large cyst on my back.
* Cured the symptoms of allergies and post nasal drip.
* Cured my sinus headaches.
If you are in pain you owe it to yourself to try acupuncture.
I wish someone told me before going through the agony of surgery.
Thank you Insung,
Mr. C of Hazlet"
Low Back Pain & Sciatica
Segundo tomaba la medicina que son 3 veces al dia para el dolor y adormecimiento de la cintura para abajo y se quejaba con frecuencia , inclusive no podia dormir de las molestias que sentia. Cuando se trataba de caminar no podia caminar mas de 10 o 20 metros entonces buscaba con emergencia donde sentarse para no caerse.
Cuando empezo el tratamiento de acupuntura el 23 de Diciembre del 2011 como en la segunda o tercera terapia empezo a sentir alivio, con decirle que hasta puede caminar sin mucha dificultad y en cada terapia que continua hay un cambio y se siente mas relajado.
En esta ultima semana esta tomando una sola pastilla al dia, entonces es un prueba que esta mejorando la bendicion de dios y del Dr que lo atiende.
English translation by Yaima Orta.
Segundo (72 years old) had pain in his lower back and felt his legs numb. He also took a painkiller 3 times a day; he couldn't sleep due his pain and when he tried to walk, he could barely move 10 or 20 meters forward, he had to sit down immediately trying not falling down.
When he began the Acupuncture treatment in December 23, 2011, we saw the results by the second or third session, he felt relief and he can walk much better. He feels changes in each treatment and more relaxed.
The last week he's only taking one pill a day, those are proofs that he's getting better, with the favor of God and the Dr who's taking care of him.

testimonial by his wife Theresa
Low Back Pain
MY EXPERIENCE WITH ACUPUNCTURE WAS A POSITIVE
AND PAIN RELEIVING EXPERIENCE. THERE WAS NO DISCOMFORT IN THE PROCEDURE AND IT PROVIDED THE PAIN RELIEF I EXPECTED IN A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME.
Sciatica and Lower back Pain
"In less then one month
Mr. Insung Park has accomplished
what the medical field has tried to accomplish
during the past 20 years
He has relieved my pain by 80-90 % with 4 times treatments.
Since 1990 I have suffered from Osteoarthritis and Neuropathy and have received treatments from Chiropractors, Surgeons and Pain Management Doctors.
I have had Lumber Larenectomy, Lumbar Fusion and Total Knee Replacement surgeries and lost count of the Epidural Injections I have received.
This all resulted in minimum to no relief from my pain.
I hope this testimonial is read by someone, who has suffered as I have, and encourages them to reach out to Insung.
End your pain & suffering.
Acupuncture treatments are painless and the results can be life-changing as in my case."
Trigeminal Neuralgia (very severe condition)
My mother has been suffering from Trigeminal neuralgia, and this condition was so severe sometimes that she can not even eat and speak that is why she was losing weight. She felt like she was going to be in pain forever because she went to a neurologist and he prescribe her pills but it did not help my mother. Fortunately we find Mr. Park and after a couple of sessions she started feeling better and now she can eat and speak and do her regular activities without problems. Thank you so much Dr. Park.
I would recommend anyone with any kind of health problem to try this treatment.

Back, Knee & Heel Pain
"Feel better in many things.."
I appreciate the procedure I'm free of anxiety & have clearer thinking in dealing with the various challenges of life, the pain in my back,knee,heel have significantly subsided also less acid reflux pain I really appreciate Mr. Park & this thousand years old procedure.
Neuropathy: Extremely pain in both legs and feet
From the time that I arrived at Acu Park I felt that a had made the right choice in seeking relief from acupuncture. It has been a short time since I started Acupuncture treatment and the results has been astonishing. Very little no pain by the needles & the pain that I had has diminished drastically. If You want to stop suffering for agonizing pain I would recommended Acu Park to anyone seeking safe & painless treatment.
Continual positive results leading up to our pregnancy
"Migraines have decreased in frequency.."
Dear Dr. Park,
I wanted to give you my sincerest thanks for helping my husband and I conceive our first child. It has meant so much to us & wanted to share with you our experiences that led us up to this point.
Our journey to start a family began about 4 ½ years ago. We had initially tried on our own without success and eventually turned to a reproductive endocrinologist. We underwent 3 clomid cycles, 2 intrauterine insemination (IUI) cycles which resulted in negative pregnancy results. We then underwent 2 in-vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles which resulted in 2 miscarriages.
With no clear understanding as to why we were not able to conceive I researched acupuncture and made decision to try. In March 2011, I made my first appointment with your office, was apprehensive at first but quickly overcame my fear of needles, and have continued since then. I realized after my initial appointment that my fear of the needles was unfounded, there was no pain, and overall was very relaxed at the end of the session.
Last month we tried one additional IVF transfer in combination with acupuncture treatment every week. The acupuncture treatment aided us during this cycle and had continual positive results leading up to our pregnancy. Results included increased and healthier follicle growth, uterine lining, and stable hormone levels.
Although my initial reason for acupuncture was to conceive I experienced several additional changes in the process. My migraines have decreased in frequency from 3 per month to 1 every two months. Also my menstrual cycle, which was irregular, became more regular over the course of a few months.
We are so grateful for what you have done for us. You are both knowledgeable and skilled in your practice but are also truly sincere, patient, and compassionate.

Low back pain, Sciatica, Depression and Anxiety
I suffered from severe back pain and sciatica for nearly 5 years on daily basis.
After a couple of long-term and unsuccessful chiropractic treatments I
got reminded of the ancient practice of acupuncture.
I did my on-line search on all acupuncturists in Montclair area.
Dr Insung Park's resume striked my immediately. Extensive educational
background, a couple of University diplomas and many years of practice
Dr Park's acupuncture treatment twice a week had results in three
months. I am now pain free and much happier.
At this point I've addressed another issue. I've been taking
antidepressants and anti-anxiety prescription drugs for ten years.
I finally decided to take charge of my life. I did not want to deal with
side effects of such drugs anymore. Namely mainly drowsiness. I
stopped taking these prescription drugs and am going for the natural
I'm looking forward to putting my body back to balance.
Dr Park's practice and treatment makes me leave relaxed and happy.
I must say I also appreciate Dr Park's kind approach to people.
In terms of payments Dr Park files all my claims directly.
Thank you Dr. Park.
I'm forever grateful.
After a month of acupuncture twice a week
pain level went from a 10 to a 1
My left foot started to hurt in February. I went to an orthopedic doctor in April and he looked at it, took x-rays and said that it would get better on its own and did not recommend physical therapy, orthodics or anything. In July my foot was still hurting and seemed to be getting worse so I talked to my general practitioner about it. She referred me to physical therapy and a podiatrist. I went to physical therapy 2-3 times a week for 3 weeks and it actually exacerbated the problem so my therapist advocated for an MRI. My podiatrist, after trying prescription anti-inflammatories for a few weeks and more x-rays ordered the MRI and it revealed that I had tendonitis. At her recommendation I wore a moon boot to take all weight off my foot for 3 weeks but it didn’t seem to improve the pain. The next step she recommended was getting a cortisone injection in my foot. At this point (7 months after the pain started) I decided to try acupuncture. I had torn a ligament in my ankle when I was in high school and wearing a moon boot for 3 months had not healed it so I went to acupuncture then and it was the reason I was able to exercise again. After a month of acupuncture twice a week for my foot my pain level went from a 10 to a 1. I’m starting to be able to walk around more without pain and look forward to slowly introducing exercise. I decided not to get the cortisone injection because my pain was significantly reduced by acupuncture. When I tell people about getting acupuncture they are usually wary of the needles. I try to explain that the needles are very thin, about 10 of them can fit into a regular needle. Sometimes I can’t feel the needles when they go in, other times there is a little pressure or it feels like a little prick. If someone is dealing with a nagging injury that western medicine has not been able to heal I would highly recommend trying acupuncture. It has been very helpful for me.
Back neck and scapula zone pinching nerve paincame back to normal without surgery!
First let me say thank you to Insung Park for all his help and helping me become pain free again. In April 2010 I had a four level fusion of my neck and after 9 months of physical therapy I was able to return to work as a Firefighter. In July 2011 I somehow pinched a nerve in my neck at work and was back in pain again. Surgeon said I might need surgery again but I refused. I was then sent back to therapy. At this point I decided to see an acupuncturist. After five weeks of treatment I can say that the pain is 90% gone and that I can see a full recovery in my future. Thank you for all your help.
Back Neck Pain
(I look forward everyday to my next session)
I am writing to express my gratitude and appreciation for your treatment.
For a few years I have been dealing with pain in my neck and my shoulders. I had seen my doctor a couple of years ago, whom referred me to a neurologist. In turn, the neurologist explained to me that the paid was caused by one or more pinched nerves on my neck and prescribed me some medications. Unfortunately, that did not help. Instead, the problem increased and, for about a year now, the pain has gone to radiate down to my left hand. It has also affected my ability to rotate or elevate my left arm since the shoulder joint seems to be fusing, apparently due to the impairment in mobility.
I have been treating with a chiropractor since February of this year, and even though it seemed to help a little at the beginning, the condition only worsen to the point that I could not sleep because of the pain despite the pain killers and anti-inflammatory medication.
I have to say I was a little skeptical when they suggested that I treated with acupuncture. Yet, I was so desperate that I decided to give it a shot.
Amazingly, even though you explained to me that it would take quite a few treatments to see some results, I started noticing a difference after the third treatment. I was pleasantly surprised to see that I was able to sleep without the pain and without the need of pain killers. I am glad to see that I do not need to take pain killers day and night, and still am able to go on with my day and sleep without pain.
I look forward everyday to my next session with the certainty that I am going to come out of it feeling much better. And most importantly, knowing that I am not harming my organs with any more pills and that regardless how long it may take, I will be able to recuperate completely.

Low Back Pain
which is also bothering sleeping
(After second treatment there was a noticeable improvement)
Before seeing Mr. Park I had never received acupuncture treatments before. I had been suffering from severe lower back pain. The pain was so bad that I had to take twice the dosage of pain medication my doctor prescribed in order to sleep and even then I would wake up in the middle of the night from the pain and have to take more pain killers. I started acupuncture treatments once a week. After my second treatment there was a noticeable improvement in the pain I was feeling and I no longer woke up in the middle of the night. I then decided to see Mr. Park twice a week. After three treatments I was able to take the prescribed dosage of pain medication to sleep through the night which was 75% less than I was taking before acupuncture treatments. I have been told that this is a long road to getting better and I am still on that road, however, it has been shortened and made much more bearable because of Mr. Park and acupuncture. I have been going to Mr. Park for less than a month now and I continue to see improvement after every visit.
Thank you Insung Park.

Neuropathy and Swollen Ankle
(I was told by my medical doctor that there was nothing
that could be done)
Dear Dr. Park:
Thank you so much. Your acupuncture treatment to my swollen often painful ankles for more than 5 years, has been a miracle after 3 times of treatments. I no longer need to walk around with unattractive ankle supports. The pain and swell are gone. I was told by my medical doctor that there was nothing that could be done for my chronic ankle sprains. I was not able to wear sandals or any other flat shoe that did not lace up. The summer or warm weather was the worst. I am so happy. I know a lot of people are afraid of needles, but those thin tiny needles work like magic and without pain. I am so glad I found a treatment that really works.

Arthritis and Floaters in Eyes
I suffer from Arthritis in my knees, more than 20 years and was told I would have to do a knee replacement on my left knee. April 29th, 2011, I went to Dr. Park’s office and the treat I received was remarkable. I look forward to my weekly visits; my knee does not hurt as before. On my last visit I told him about floaters in my eyes and after one treatment the floaters had subsided quite a bit and I will continue to see him. He is a blessing and I highly recommend him. I walk much better and feel great!
Lower back/ Forearm Pain
(Years of Pain Gone in 2 times of treatments)
I was referred to Acupuncture Park to undergo acupuncture treatment with Insung Park.
I had been trying for years to get rid of the lower back/ forearm pain that I was suffering from but to no avail.
I have to say that I am very happy with my results.
My back has really improved and I am feeling much better in general.
I’m also a Graphic Designer which means I’m always on the computer.
I explained to Insung Park my problem on my forearms when typing and he said he can help.
After 2 treatments, I can honestly say I’m pain free, I’m really amazed.
I would highly recommend Acupuncturist Insung Park to anyone suffering from back
or any other pain. Thank you Insung.
Chronic Neck and Back Stiffness
(Painless Relief from Pain)
I suffer from chronic neck and back stiffness. Working in a global environment and finishing a graduate degree took a toll on my neck and back. After years of sitting in inappropriate chairs for long periods of time only worsened my conditions and made me seek HELP!
I have attended ten sessions under Dr. Park's care and I can state that I feel a 70 percent improvement with the treatment. I can now bear to sit in long 3 hour meetings without having to get up and leave the room to stretch and take a pain reducer. Prior to the acupuncture, I only had a tolerance of sitting in one place no longer than thirty minutes at most and now I can endure at least a two hour meeting without feeling extremely stiff. In the morning upon waking up I no longer have heavy stiffness in my neck area and lower back.
If you have a fear of "needles" do not, because Dr. Park is very sensitive to your fears as a new patient and he takes the time to explain the procedure and tell you what to expect. The procedure is well worth getting over any fears in order to bring you back to a pain free life.

Low Back, Shoulder & Hip pain
(What I don’t understand today is why alternative approaches aren’t encourage before surgery & pain pills!)
I have been seeing Dr. Park since March of 2011 for my hip & shoulder pain from a fall I took in 2005. The pain was present when completing everyday tasks and work was becoming increasingly difficult for me. I saw many doctors for many years for this problem & completed physical therapy, chiropractor ‘adjustments’, multiple X-rays, & a Cortisone shot. During a visit with a specialist, he advised me to get a Cortisone shot in my hip & that surgery & pain pills were my options. I am only 47 years old and a very active person so this was not the option I wanted to hear. After that doctor’s visit, I started to look at other alternatives & did my research on acupuncture...this led me to Dr. Park. My first visit was scary since I do not like needles but I was hopeful & tried to remain open minded. Now I can’t begin to tell you how much better I am doing after my treatments with him. I am able to get out of bead in the morning & do all the activity's that I use to do with much less pain now. I was able to start adding exercising into my routine again. What I don’t understand today is why alternative approaches aren’t encourage before surgery & pain pills! Right now I am grateful for the relief that Dr. Park has been able to give me that I desperately needed. I want to thank Dr. Park for all he has done for me to control my pain & put me back on the path to myself again.

Carpal Tunnel, Constipation,
Acid Reflux and Sciatica
(I was going to have carpal tunnel surgery again but
not necessary any more now)
I had Carpal Tunnel in my left hand 10 yrs ago and had to have surgery on it. A few months ago I started having symptoms of Carpal Tunnel in my right hand too. It would tingle and get numb whenever I used it, especially at work when working at my computer. It also would wake me up several times at night. I didn’t want to get the surgery again so tried acupuncture at Acupuncture Park. Almost immediately I started sleeping through the night. After continuing with twice weekly sessions for several weeks, I no longer have any symptoms of Carpal Tunnel. No more numbness tingling or pain ever when I use the computer. I was also relived of bowl movement, acid reflux and sciatica. I am so glad I tried acupuncture instead of resorting to surgery again.

Anxiety, Stress, Panic Attack and Stomach Pain
Until a few weeks ago I never had Acupuncture performed on me, and also had never even considered going. And now, I'm very glad that I did.
For the past 5 years I have had problems with stress and toll it was taking on my body. The stress had manifested years ago as panic attacks that at first seemed like an actual illness. I became violently ill, unable to keep any food in my system for days, even a week, at a time and I wound up admitted to the hospital three times over two years.
The last attack was last month. After trying doctors and hospitals and having no luck, I took the advice of my cousin, and decided to try Acupuncture. Within hours of making that decision, I was in the doctor's waiting room for my first acupuncture session. I never have had any fear of needles, but this was still something new to me, and I was slightly anxious.
The doctor, Insung Park, immediately had put me at ease with his demeanor, and I felt very calm about trying this out. First, it is absolutely true that you barely feel the needles. I had heard that from people and did not believe it, but now, I know from experience that it is true. Second, it only takes a minute for the needles to be set, and then, you feel instantly relaxed. I mean, right away. Time and everything else seems to stand still, and your body just melts into a state of calm. All the noise and thoughts that run around in my head had slowed or stopped, and I felt clear in my mind for the first time in my years.
When the doctor Park came back to remove the needles I felt better than I had in days. My stomach was no longer a ball of knots, and I could think clear and focused when before I felt overwhelmed. I remember telling my father that I instantly felt a change. Even the day after, I was still feeling ill, but I felt I could handle it. I didn't feel the weight of stress on my shoulder.
As I said, for years I tried different medications and forms of meditation. Meditation had worked better than anything a doctor had prescribed, but the Acupuncture really made a dramatic improvement in a amazingly short time. And I could not wait for my next appointment. Looking back now, a month later, I feel great. I haven't had any problems with my stomach or stress. I feel better emotionally and physically.
Everyone that I come across I recommend it to. Now that I have gone and seen the effects of Acupuncture, I know it is something I will continue with for the rest of my life.
Lower Back Pain and Shoulder Pain/ Excess Underarm Sweating for years.
I have been a patient of on Parks for almost six months.
In that time Dr. Park has helped me in so many ways.
I initially started for Low Back Pain and Shoulder Pain. I'm pleased to say I no longer suffer with thanks to Dr. Park.
I happened to mention to Dr. Park that I had a problem with Excess Underarm Sweating for years. The problem really affected my life. I tried everything for years Rx deodorants, special teas, you name it.
I was at the point of considering surgery. Dr. Park asked me to give him some time to try to help with herbs and Acupuncture for a while before had surgery. After suffering 10 years I thought sure whats a few more sessions.
Within 6-8 weeks of Acupuncture and Herbs my sweating was almost completely gone!
I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT!
I had no idea Acupuncture could help so many conditions!
I am so greateful to Dr. Park. He has really changed my life.
He is a wonderful & gifted healer.
I will be forever greateful to him.
Thank you Dr. Park.
Natural Red Bull & Energizer
I have started acupuncture treatment with doctor park two weeks ago and can't wait until next session! I was trying to deal with my pain problems, being tired and losing energy. I was sceptical about non-traditional medicine and was afraid of needles. But to my surprise, I did not experience any pain and felt very energetic after the first treatment. Tomorrow my husband will join me. He has knee problems and is constantly in pain. I hope this acupuncture will help him too.

Relief of lower back pain & Better Bowel movement
I originally began visiting Dr. Park after having chiropractic treatment to my neck and lower back which gave me pain. After several weeks of chiropractic treatment I didn't have much long-term improvement, I was resistant to the adjustments because they would work initially but eventually I would have the stiffness and pain. After a few acupuncture treatments with Dr. Park I had relief of the pain. Once that problem was addressed, we moved onto another problem, my lack of daily bowel movements. I would go to the bathroom every 2-3 days (sometimes longer), after one or two sessions with Dr. Park I am on a regular bowel movement schedule, I go faithfully twice a day! I am a new acupuncture patient but I look forward to it every time I have an appointment.
Ear pain & Sinus Issue
Oct. 25th 2010
I have had chronic allergies and sinus infections for the past 15 years.
2 years ago I suffered from a double ear infection which was difficult to treat.
Ever since then I have had a significant amount of ear pain.
I have had numerous causes for this pain suggested to me by various Drs.- TMJ, upper back strain, deviated septum, seasonal allergies, etc.
I purchased a night guard for the TMJ, visited chiropractors and physical therapists for the back pain and consulted with numerous ear/nose/throat doctors.
One day I realized that I had been priscribed 12 different medications from the ENT Drs but nothing helped and not one of the Drs. could find anything wrong with me!
That is when I decided to try Acupuncture.
Since I started seeing Dr. Park I have noticed quite a bit of improvement.
My ear pain has substantially subsided and my sleep has improved drastically.
The Acupuncture has been much more comfotable and effective than I ever expected it to be.
Not only do I find it to be beneficial but it is also relaxing. I truely look forward to my sessions and my continued improvement.
Thanks Dr. Park
Pain in the ear after surgery
September 1st 2010
I started acupuncture as a last resort.
I had had surgery in October to remove a tumor from my face.
The surgery involved disrupting many major nerves in my face and head.
I was in a lot of pain as a result of the surgery.
I was put on a drug called Gabapentin 300 MG 3 times a day for pain relief with no change, then it was increased to 4 times a day, then 5 times a day.
The drug had many side effect including sever depression and disorientation. I was having a hard time putting words and thoughts together.
My surgeon in Philadelphia suggested I try acupuncture.
He suggested one in Philadelphia which is an hour from my home.
I knew I would not drive there a few times a week if I needed continuing treatment.
I was luck enough to find Insung Park. He was local and was willing to see me immediately.
After the first treatment I had some relief so I stopped the medicine.
After the second treatment I was nearly pain free and feeling much more myself.
I have had several visits with Insung Park and now visit him only once a week to maintain the results he has achieved.
He has helped me so much. I feeling so much better and would recommend him to anyone.
He has taught me many things. I think I may have chosen a different path with the surgery if I had met him first.
Thank you Insung for the relief you have given me.
If anyone would like to speak to me about my experience please call me directly on my cell 732-740-3085.
If you prefer you can text me at that number.
Respectfully yours Carolyn Shen
Migraines and severe Neck Pain
August 25th 2010
I was experiencing excruciating migraines several times a month along with neck pain so bad I could no longer perform everyday tasks comfortably. I could not sit at the computer anymore and I could no loner sleep on my side.
I saw a pain management doctor, a chiropractor and physical therapists but months went by with no relief.
I finally decided to give acupuncture a try so I met with Dr. Insung Park. After just a few visits the migraines stopped and neck pain was much better. I have had 6 or 7 treatments so far and I am feeling great. I am able to sleep on my side again and I am able to get my work done on the computer with no discomfort.
Dr. Park also provide me a natural herbs that were specifically for neck pain and it worked great. I would recommened him to anyone looking for relief from any ailment. He is a wonderful person who really cares his patients.
Low Back & Shoulder Pain and Anxiety
July 28 2010
I started Acupuncture a few month ago with Insung Park for treatment of Lower Back pain & Shoulder pain.
After my first Acupuncture treatment I was feeling improvement both mentally & physically.
It made me feel very relaxed & less anxious.
I have not felt this good and balanced in years.
Acupuncture has really changed my life!
I searched & researched far and wide for the right acupuncturist.
I’m so grateful I found the Best!!!
Thank you so much Dr. Park, You are a blessing.Kelly W.
Low Back Pain
I have been suffering from Low Back Pain for a few years, so severe sometimes I felt like I was going to be in pain forever but I discovered Mr. park and his technique.
Within several treatments, I felt a difference. My Low back pain has lessened.
I would recommend anyone in my condition to try this treatment.

Before beginning acupuncture treatment at Acupuncture Park, I experienced severe headaches 2-3 times per week, over the course of many years.
The headaches were often accompanied by nausea and sometimes vomiting. Pain medication offered no relief and I was often bedridden until the pain subsided. Understandably, the headaches were negatively impacting both my professional and personal life.
After only a couple sessions of acupuncture treatment the debilitating headaches are gone. The treatments are pleasant and relaxing. Contrary to my fears, there is virtually NO pain associated with the needles, and I generally fall asleep during the treatment!

I used to have serious migraines every 2-3 months. Since I have been seeing Insung not only have my headaches decreased in frequency and strength, I have had NO migraines! My results were immediate. I really don't understand how it works, but so far it works for me!
Low Back Pain
I was a little reluctant about trying acupuncture at first but I was in so much pain that I could not walk with right posture. I was willing to try anything to relieve the crushing pain in my back. I have to say that it really worked for me and had me feeling like my old self again just in five sessions.
The needles Dr. Park use aren’t what you might think. They are very small and pinch for only about a second, and in some place you don’t feel them at all. Best part about it no side effects. Thanks Dr. Park!
I have been going to see Dr. Park since mid-October of 2009 for the extreme pain that I was experiencing in my right shoulder area.
From the beginning of 2009, my shoulder pain was so intense that it made me everyday activities difficult like carrying a bag or raising my arm in the air. So I decided to visit my primary doctor, where he took an x-ray and couldn’t find anything wrong. I continued to see my primary doctor and took multiple x-rays, yet there was nothing found. In addition to these doctor visits, I was taking over- the-counter medications to help ease the pain and rubbing my shoulder nearly every night. After several visits, my doctor suggested that I should see a bone specialist. At that point, I decided to take matters into my own hands. I never went to see a bone specialist; instead I went to see Dr. Insung Park. I was always interested in acupuncture, so I decided to try it. After the first session, I could already see results in the movement of my arm and the pain was getting reduced. I continued to go once a week for about six weeks. The results were amazing! The pain continued to decline and everyday tasks were not such a hassle anymore. Dr. Park was able to help me with my issue in a way that no medication or doctor could. God only knows what would have happened if I went to see a bone specialist, but what I know is that I would still be in pain and unable to use most of my arm. I haven’t fully recovered yet form my shoulder pain, but I know that my progress with Dr. Park will lead me in that direction.

Low Back Pain (Spinal Senosis and Compressed Discs)I have recently started to receive treatment from Insung for my lower back pain caused spinal stenosis and compressed discs. The condition that I’m experiencing has caused nerve damage and the pain can be severe at times. I’ve been treated by a chiropractor and physical therapist for the past 3 months and my symptoms have improved but not completely. After my first session with Insung, my pain has almost gone away completely. I am very grateful that acupuncture seems to work for my condition since the alternative would be to have cortisone injections and/or take oral medications.

A Nonspecific Neuropathy
My name is Brian Saez, I first came to see Dr. Park about two months ago. I was previously diagnosed with a nonspecific neuropathy. For three months my feet were in horrible pain. I had terrible burning and stabbing pain in my feet 24 hours a day. I had to quit my job, and I had to stop my martial arts training which I loved. I saw many different doctors and I got no relief. My life was a living hell; i couldn't walk, i couldn't even leave the house because of the pain. At night the pain and burning kept me awake. The only relief i got was from dipping my feet in ice water, and from swallowing handfuls of painkillers. When i finally considered acupuncture I was completely disabled and very depressed. When I first met Dr. Park he was very friendly and professional, and his prices very reasonable. At first I was very skeptical but after a few sessions I noticed significant relief in my feet. After ten sessions I feel about 90 percent better. And now I don't need a cane anymore. I feel eternally grateful to Dr Park.

Vertigo/Dizziness and Anxiety
Before visiting Mr. Insung Park for acupuncture treatment, I’ve suffered from frequent episodes of vertigo, which would also trigger anxiety. I visited several specialists of Western medicine and none could not find a cure to the vertigo. Each and every one just prescribed medication that would help alleviate the symptoms of vertigo, but did not prevent the episodes from happening.
After just one session of acupuncture with Mr. Park, I immediately felt changes – physically, emotionally and mentally. For one, the normal time a vertigo episode would occur during the month (which happened to be a week after my 1st session) did not occur! I was very pleased with this, in addition to the fact that my emotions and thoughts were distinctively calmer than prior to the treatment. I continue to see Mr. Park for acupuncture on a regular basis, and have noticed that not only has my vertigo and anxiety disappeared, but I also have more energy, more happiness and a great sense of health, wellness and overall! I was a little skeptical to the effects before I actually tried a session, but now I am a firm believer that this works and Mr. Park is great at what he does! He takes his time and gives individual attention to each person. In addition, acupuncture does not hurt one bit. I actually feel very peaceful and relaxed during each session, and I really enjoy the benefits and effects of acupuncture.
Thank you so much, Mr. Insung Park!

Gout :Swollen knee and ankle
(No needs crutches after two weeks of treatments)
As a patient of Dr. Insung Park since April 7, 2011, I highly recommend him. I suffer from Gout for more than 10 years and had been to several doctors who were unable to help me even with medication. On April 7th 2011 on crutches I went to Doctor Park’s office, he said I can help you, with acupuncture and herbs and I was able to walk on my own without crutches after two weeks. I am so happy with my progress and will continue with Dr. Park.
Sciatica and Lower back pain
Two years ago, I had injured my back, and gotten a slipped disc. This caused shooting pains in my lower back, down my left leg, and into my foot which would become numb. I had the disc repaired with surgery, and everything was fine, until the disc slipped again a few months ago. The pain was so bad, that most of the time, I could not stand up or sit down for very long, the only thing I could do was lie flat on my back, and this time, I was told that it would be impossible to do the same kind of surgery again, the only thing they could do this time would be spinal fusion.
Desperate to avoid this, I got a cortisone injection, started losing weight, and doing physical therapy. This made the pain much better, and I could do most tasks again, but still I had a bit of a limp, and it was always there in the background. It was at this point that my physical therapist suggested Acupuncture, with Insung Park. I was skeptical of this at first, but I figured what could it hurt, you never know, may as well give it a try.
In my first session with Insung, I filled out a questionnaire, and told him about the history of my problems. I was a little worried about the needles at first, but they only pinched a little bit going in, and then I didn’t feel them at all. He definitely did seem to zero in on all the areas which had been causing me problems, apart from just the direct area affected by my slipped disc. And the day after, I really did feel like everything was a little better. I came to look forward to my sessions.
It’s now been a few weeks, and amazingly, my pain is completely gone. I don’t even think about my leg or foot at all anymore, all day long. This is such a huge relief, compared to how it was before! I have no limp, and I am again doing all of the activities that I used to do before my injury. This may sound like a cliché, but it’s true, I was once a skeptic, but now I believe, acupuncture really can help people, and I would recommend anyone to give it a try. Thank you, Mr. Park!

Herniated and Bulging disks, Lower back and Hamstring pain, Sinus problems with a Post-Nasal Drip
My mom and I have been coming for acupuncture for a month and already have seen and felt a big difference in the way we feel. My neck has always caused me a lot of pain due to herniated and bulging disks, also suffering lower back pain and hamstring pain too. I have seen many types of doctors, but have not had consistent relief. My neck and lower back are now pain free and it feels great. My mother has also had relief with neck pain. She had very bad sinus problems with a post nasal drip. Treatment has helped her tremendously with the assistance of herbs that Dr. Park recommended for her. No medication has ever been able to help her with this horrible drip. Dr. Park is also a very kind, caring and happy man. We have all the time fun joking and laughing with him! This our first experience with acupuncture and we have recommended this to our friends and family. We would recommend that you give it a try since it has helped us in many ways! Good luck!
Christine & Elizabeth
I am a 49 year old male. I’ve had a pain that initially started in my early 20’s. The pain usually occurs early in the morning or about the time I get up (it occasionally occurs in the evening as well). The joint area becomes swollen and reddish. The pain slowly escalates and reaches its peak in about three days. The pain then regresses and disappears about a week after it started. I experience this pain once every two or three months. In particular, the pain always occurs if I have been very concerned about something, if I have been under great stress or if I have been drinking because of the stress. The pain is approximately 100 times the pain one feels when touching a bruise, or when a tiger has bitten you. If the pain was in a finger, a wrist or an elbow, I can tolerate it. However, if the pain is in the lower half of the body, such as an ankle or a knee, I can only crawl or barely move at all. Therefore, if I had pain in my knees, I would have to take time off from work and lie still all day. I suffered for almost 20 years until the pain was diagnosed as rheumatic arthritis. About two years ago, I started taking herbal medicine as prescribed by InSung Park. I took the medicine for about 3 – 4 months and the pain basically disappeared. It has reappeared only two or three times since then, and even then, the pain lasted only two or three days. Also, the severity of the pain has decreased to the level of a bruise. Had I received acupuncture along with the herbal medicine, I believe the results would have been even better, but I was afraid to receive acupuncture at the time.
Thanks InSung Park.Charly B.
Low back pain, Sciatica and Allergies
I know what it’s like to live with pain and to take medication one after another for the pain in order to function with everyday activities, only to have the pain come back once the medicine runs the time span that it is designed to perform.
I suffered from severe low back pain and sciatica together for long time and I prayed everyday for something that would alleviate this dreadful disabling illness. I have gone to countless doctors and have taken different medications, but nothing seems to work until a friend suggested that I should try Acupuncture- I was skeptical. However, after six months of acupuncture treatment, I can honestly say that I have never felt better, and I now intend to include acupuncture as part of my overall healthcare needs.
Another happening is for pollen allergies, all those symptoms, itching eyes, running eyes and nose, and sneezing are also relieved, so I don’t feel any now.
This, Acupuncture, works really good! Depending on the severity of your condition, you will start to feel good again in as much as little as two weeks. I’m living proof that this alternative holistic care treatment will change your whole life- you do not have to live with pain any longer.
And thanks again for Dr. Park
Constant Headaches, Anxiety,
Choking Sensation in the Throat
and Seasonal allergies
Back in 2006 after seeing at least 8 different specialists of western medicine for the past 3 years with no improvement to my conditions, my son's pediatrician recommended to try natural medicine. Since I have already heard a lot of good things about acupuncture, I decided to do some research and I found Mr. Insung Park thru the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine.
My symptoms included headaches, anxiety, postpartum depression, choking sensation in the throat, sinus problems, seasonal allergies, and other very unpleasant symptoms I just could not handle anymore. After just one consultation and one session of acupuncture I felt 50 percent improvement.
Mr. Park's knowledge of oriental medicine, great expertise and overall ability connect all of the symptoms I was having was simply amazing. He was always very flexible with scheduling sessions to meet patient's needs. After 12 sessions of acupuncture and some herbal treatments, I was completely cured. I have been recommending Mr. Insung Park to everyone since then.
Right after I was cured, my husband received acupuncture treatment from Mr. Park for seasonal allergies. Before he started he was on Zyrtec or Allegra every single day during allergy seasons. That was back in 2007 and he has been fine since that time and he never needed to take another allergy pill.
Insomnia, Autoimmune disease
I have been Insung Park’s acupuncture patient for 10 years of insomnia with the symptoms of shallow sleeping, 7-8 times wake up during every night and very tired all-day long. The improvement started 2 months later and now, after 8months of treatment, I sleep much better, wake up only 1-2 time each night, more deep sleeping and feel rested most of the time.
Another benefit I have received from acupuncture relates to an autoimmune disease I have, Sjogren’s. This disease causes body fluids to dry up- I have very dry eyes, very little saliva, and little joint lubrication. I also have Purpura, blood disorder. Since getting acupuncture, my blood work has improved by over 75%. I have much more saliva (I can now eat without drinking after every bite), and I have more tear production. My western doctors have advised me to continue the acupuncture treatments.
Thank you Insung Park

Swollen feet and knees
I have been treated by Mr. Park for 2 months. I came for a foot problem and severe swelling in my both knees. After a very bad car accident, I suffered severe back spasms. Mr. Park treated this problem as well. I felt some immediate relief and after few weeks of treatment my back spasms are gone. My back also feels more relaxed and flexible. I don’t need a cane anymore.
Low back pain and Sciatica
Prior to receiving acupuncture from you, my left lower hip would ache if I got up from a seat too swiftly and sometimes ached continuously. Since receiving acupuncture, I had realized that 90% of the disabling ache has disappeared. Only the slightest trace of an ache, not pain, remains.
Additionally, my right groin is now without tightness or pain.
I thank you very much for your experience and philosophical approach.
I am expecting a lower blood pressure from now on.

This document is a brief history of my personal encounter with acupuncture.
During December 2008 I started getting severe headaches. The cause most likely was related to posture while utilizing my computer.
As the headaches became more severe I started to worry whether or not I was suffering some sort of brain ailment. I had never had this type of headache before and I was beginning to worry quite a bit.
Various headache pills didn’t calm this throbbing pain much or my worries. I was getting more worried and desperate.
I had heard about acupuncture before but never really had any interest and didn’t know too much about it.
When I asked my medical MDs about acupuncture they all said similar remarks.
“ I can’t recommend acupuncture myself, but many people say that it helps them a lot”
I guess for me the real deciding factor was I found out my medical insurance covers acupuncture. Why not try it – I was hurting. I needed some relief.
I started to investigate acupuncture. A fairly prominent businessman gave me a recommendation for Insung Park. This was just what I needed. I wasn’t apprehensive about needles or the acupuncture process because I really didn’t know anything about it.
During my first visit, Insung Park proceeded to ask me many questions relating to myself. My likes and dislikes, my tastes preferences and how I related to temperature hot and cold and how I slept at night. Many of the question made no sense to me at the time because I was there for headaches.
I became very interested in this whole process. Even though I started acupuncture for bad headaches, my other body aches or malfunctions were included with each session.
After my first and second session I no longer had headaches. To my surprise I had more energy than I had in years. I’m feeling good and I became a real believer of acupuncture.
To date I still have aches and pains that need to be unblocked but the process seems to be working. I now know that if I ever have a serious problem or simply any mental or physical abnormal condition, I will ask Insung Park about possible a treatment.
I believe that the treatment I receive from Insung Park relieves exactly what his business card states.

I would be happy to discuss my experience to date with acupuncture and Insung Park if asked.
Dizziness, lightheadedness, upset stomach, tingling sensation of the limbs (parathesia), irregular blood pressure.
On June 15th 2008, I went to my western medical practitioner regarding symptoms that were making me very uncomfortable and ill. These were dizziness, lightheadedness, upset stomach, tingling sensation of the limbs (parathesia), irregular blood pressure, symptoms compatible with acute labrintitis or vertigo. After extensive tests, using monitoring devices, such as, scans, sonograms, and blood test, none of eight physicians I saw were able to detect the root cause and treat my illness.
I then took it on my own research the symptoms and treatment and came upon Dr. Insung Park, Acupuncturist and Herbalist. At this time the symptoms were so severe I was not able to walk even one block street or go to Acupuncturist's office, so he came to my house to admininster acupuncture and herbal medicine. Today I can walk over two miles in 15 minutes, without dizziness, so thanks to the wonderful works of Dr. Park of Acupuncture Park. His Eastern medicine technique has helped me and is continuing to maintain me get to that 100% that I was before I became ill. Acupuncturist and Herbalist Park in my opinion has showed me that he is knowledgeable about his craft and takes the time to identify problems and correct them based on the each patients' symptoms. He is the one of the best in my book so far, and I have recommended him to all of my friends and family.Dexter O. Chance
