Traditional Chinese Medicine accounts for specific balancing treatments in preparation for each season of the year. In Yellow Empero’s Canon Internal Medicine (tr. by Nelson Liansheng Wu and Andrew Qi Wu, China Science & Technology Press, 1997), Chapter 1 entitled “On Human Preserving Health Energy in Ancient Times”, the Yellow Emperor asked of Qibo, the Taoist Master, “…people in ancient times could all survive to more than one hundred years old…What is the reason?” The Master answered: “Those who knew the way of keeping a good health in ancient times always kept in their behavior in daily life in accordance with the nature….They were able to modulate their daily life in harmony with the way of recuperating the essence and vital energy, thus they could master and practices the way of preserving good health.” This is further discussed in Chapter 2 “On Preserving Health in Accordance with the Four Seasons.” Therefore, each of the four seasons is a preparation for the coming seasonal period. For example, ten days before or after December 21, 2012 would be ideal for patients to receive an acupuncture treatment, in order to balance their vital energy for the fall season. This is especially important for those who were born in Dragon year, Dog year, Ox year and Sheep year. Even if you are feeling very healthy, it is a good practice to routinely maintain your health

Tai Chi has been a long time on-and-off source of exercise for me over the last twenty years. As I approached my early seventies and faced my osteoporosis issues along with several fractures resulting from trip-and-fall events, I started taking it more seriously. Among several medically integrative strategies to deal with my condition, I sought out Dr. Che’s help with acupuncture for my general well being and energy balancing. She also added TaiChi to my healing home practice regimen. More specifically, she demonstrated the medically-developed tai chi form that she learned from Dr. Mei, her Tai Chi Master in China. In my case, she insisted that I start practicing it in stages with the steps and foot work first. She used the analogy that a tree grows from the seed, to its roots, to its trunk, branches then leaves and not vice versa. Later, as I became more versed in... Read more »
I was infected with COVID-19 and diagnosed in mid-March, 2020. After two weeks of hard struggle [in quarantine], I finally passed the dangerous period. However, both lungs had been infected and it felt rather hard to recover. Every day I was very weak, often with chest tightness and difficult breathing; my back was especially painful. In the meantime, my friend recommended me to use Dr. Che’s Eight Acupoint prescription. I do not know anything about traditional Chinese medicine, and I know nothing about acupoints. So, I did not have any trust and confidence in this. On the other hand, during my difficult period of illness, I was willing to try anything. I thought that anyway just me doing the pressing should not make it worse. Even if I did not do it correctly, at least it will not make it worse. So I took a “try” attitude; every day I...

I had shoulder pain that wouldn’t go away. The third needle into my first session my sinses cleared up. I have had a lifetime issue with my breathing. I am now able to breathe through my nose and actually get a good breathe of air. The other positives is that during the session energy runs through my entire body and when I am finished my body feels lighter, stronger, cleaner and more balanced.
Shoulder pain, chronic sinus with lifetime breathing issue(Everett, Washington) was last modified: February 28th, 2014 by xiaI have a voice again! While I still sounds a bit like Kermit, the fact that I can talk above a whisper is awesome. I’m also enjoying being able to actually eat without crying for the first time in 3 days. Thank you for the acupuncture treatment today! Thank you to PBN member Dr. Xia Che who managed to fit me into her busy schedule today and provide some relief from my tonsillitis! Such compassion and knowledge! I walked in having not been able to talk above a whisper, eat or drink without massive pain for 3 days. She treated me (I got a little nap during that) and I now have a voice and can eat and drink without wanting to cry. Great job!!!! Heather Johnson

I was diagnosed with frozen shoulder I had constant severe pain with any movement of my left arm. I was not able to sleep due to pain. I don’t tolerate pain medication due to nausea and frankly they make me feel worse. I had physical therapy, a cortisone injection with no relief. On my first visit with Dr. Che and her assistant practitioner here in Torrance I had pain relief. After my first visit I was able to sleep and had more movement in my arm. First time in 4 months. My shoulder is getting better after my second treatment. Although my shoulder is still recovering and still a little achy at times during the day after my recommended exercises I feel much better. I feel so fortunate to have found such a wonderful caring doctor. This acupuncture was very different from what I received in the past, she also... Read more »
My daughter who is 12 years old and has been suffering from chronic pain from swelling of the joints for 10 years. She has had many anti-inflamatories from western medicine doctors. It help with the swelling but then my daughter would have the fatigue and not feeling well from the Remicade infusions and the Methletrixate shots. I would try and find non invasive treatments to help with the side effects. My daughter, said she didn’t want to do the medications anymore. I met Dr. Che and she explained her methods. Just knowing her birthday she was able to tell where her pain was and some the issues that were present in the body without us telling her anything else. At the first visit, my daughter was having a lot of pain in her jaw. With one needle, my daughter said pain was gone. The 2nd visit my daughter had knee... Read more »
In ONE visit with Dr. Che, the neck pain was completely Prior to starting my acupuncture treatment with Dr. Che, I had chronic neck pain that 2 chiropractors, spine specialists, physical therapists and massage for over 10 years with no significant relief. eliminated. Even after taking a 2 week break shortly after starting treatment, my neck pain has not returned.
I also have developed a significant pain around the psoas/Quadratus lumborum region that no one has been able to “fix” and although acupuncture has not fully relieved the pain, it is greatly lessened.
Dr. Che has taken the time to teach exercises, explaining time of day for exercise, and how to manage my specific body type based on Asian principles.
At the midpoint of my treatment, my lower back went into massive spasms to the point of not being able to walk. The pain was at a level to cause... Read more »
I am a person who suffers from extreme IBS and nausea, when i first started working with Dr. Che i was hardly able to eat, my stomach was hurting 24/7, everything i ate (100% of food) made me sick, even just the smell. my quality of life was at a all time low. on our first meeting she sat me down and explained to me why i was having these problems, and what we were going to do to treat it. after 10 sessions, she has guided me into a healthier way of life, I’m able to eat breakfast (which i hadn’t been able to eat in over 15 years), and my level of nausea has dropped to a manageable level, but most importantly I’m happier and more positive about my future. i owe her a great thanks!

钟丽华， 女， 55岁。自2009年始，晚上睡觉至夜半时，被手指头末端发痒弄醒，以后日渐严重。起初以为是皮肤感染所致，于是自行用杀菌消炎的外用药膏涂抹治疗。涂药前期，还能有清凉止痒的功效，到后期，效果越来越差，病情越来越严重，经常由于严重瘙痒，以致无法入睡。后又怀疑是皮肤过敏，用抗过敏药治疗，仍然没效果。之后发展成十指末端都瘙痒，掉皮屑，表皮变硬，开裂，出血，新皮长出，又发痒。如此周而复始的循环。曾先后在深圳和广州的医院诊治，被诊断为洗涤剂过敏，采用激光治疗，中药汤药浸泡疗法及外用药膏涂敷等，均没有疗效。后来又找广州五代中医世家的传人求治，他也认为是洗涤剂过敏，并要求使用他自制的秘方膏药，每晚临睡前涂敷，并要戴手套保持药性。经用完他的秘制膏药后，还是没有效果。同时，钟丽华还长期有便秘及不规律周期性口腔溃疡的问题。在接受车霞医师的诊疗处方后，经服用中成药一个疗程（三个月）后，手指瘙痒的病情已经明显好转，表现在手指头瘙痒的数量及部位和面积在减少，瘙痒的时间间隔也在延长，瘙痒的程度也在减轻，已完全没有因手指头瘙痒而影响睡眠的情况发生。便秘问题和口腔溃疡问题也大大好转，疗效显著。现正进入第二个疗程治疗。由网上查询得知，患有此种所谓洗涤剂过敏症的患者不在少数，很多人都无法根治，精神和肢体都饱受痛苦折磨。如今，经车霞医师的诊疗，钟丽华的手指瘙痒症已得到很大的好转和改善。在此，衷 心感谢车霞医师及她的天人合一诊疗法，为广大疑难杂症病患者带来了康复的希望和信心！
