Infertility

twins circle“I met Master Shuyun Xu in June 2013.  I went with my husband out of curiosity. We went and had a great experience. I was able to relax and sleep in the afternoon for two hours. Because of the immediate results we decided to go back about another problem we had. After four years of trying to get pregnant and my fertility doctor recommending that I start considering in vitro fertilization, I wanted to try another way. My fertility also doctor recommended I try acupuncture, he said  it helps and he has seen great results the past. I was diagnosed with unexplained infertility and I was losing hope to have a baby. So I returned to doctor Xu and explained our situation. She consulted us and she said she would help us but we have to follow her advice, come to the acupuncture sessions and take the tea and the pills. She also said to hold on to the in vitro fertilization, because she will help us within a month or so to get pregnant. No other doctor made a similar statement before and I was little bit hesitant.
She not only administered acupuncture treatments, and acupressure massages , but also suggested foods to eat and avoid as well as herbs/teas to consume.  Within 2 months I was pregnant with triplets. I did combined the acupuncture sessions with fertility medications but this time it worked after so many years of no results. Also I went to visit her two months into the pregnancy and she took my pulse and advised me to stay in bed until I was at least 3-4 month pregnant  because she saw I was not looking good. I was a little bit upset because I was feeling good and I had no problems. Next day at work I started bleeding and went to see my doctor and he also advised bed rest. I stayed in bed for two months, lost one of the babies, but my other two girls are developing great. Dr Xu is amazingly talented, a lot of knowledge, she has a great heart and never tries to recommend unnecessary services. She even came to my house (i live close by) on a Saturday night, no charge to help me out while I was in bed rest. So I am forever grateful to her because she helped us out  so much. I also recommended her to three of my friends and they had a great experience and results. Master Xu is wonderful, caring and compassionate and I highly recommend her.”

Bells Palsy

I’ve been diagnosed with Bells Palsy (facial nerve paralysis on left side of face). It’s my second occurrence and the medical doctors warned that it may be a very slow recovery (at least 6 months to a year and in some cases could be permanent) and that there is no medication for it other than the steroids and viral medicine for the first week. I then decided to try Acupuncture and Physical Therapy. After going to acupuncture doctors in Las Vegas, Ann Arbor and a private doctor along with countless visits to two Physical Therapists, without much improvement the first 3 months, I then tried Dr. Xu’s Troy Acupuncture Center. The very first visit was very intense, an hour of needles placed in strategic places with electrical stimulation on the face followed by an hour massage that was very intense but relaxing of the face, neck and shoulder muscles, trying to invigorate the muscle and nerves. I then had a session of cupping where they apply small glass suction cups on strategic places on the face to help draw fresh blood to the area. I could see that Dr. Xu was totally committed to trying everything she could do get me better quicker. After each session I could feel a difference in my facial muscles. After about a dozen sessions, I now have about 75% recovery and it’s been only about 3 months with Dr. Xu. I often wonder what if I had gone to Dr. Xu from the very beginning. Also while Dr. Xu was treating me for Bells Palsy she was also working on getting my entire body well. I would highly recommend Dr. Xu’s services and her staff was very friendly.

Migraines

I went here as a last resort for migraine headaches and IBS. I can’t believe I waited so long. The results have been incredible. I was a little leery at all the additional therapies, but when I thought about it, I never questioned my primary care physician when he gave me prescriptions or shots,  so why would I question any of the therapies recommended here?  I committed to following their therapy and have been very happy with the results. Headaches are all but a thing of the past and I can take my Wife out to dinner without fear of racing to the bathroom. Is it different…..yes. Does it work…..YES.

Sciatica

“I’m a 47 year male with a sciatica problem on my right side. From my lower back, through my backside, hamstring, calf and outer two toes were constantly going numb. Just standing was a problem. As someone who really enjoys to be active, gym, basketball, yoga it was disheartening to deal with such a problem. Over the last 3 months I saw a chiropractor 3 times a week a total of 36 visits. And really not much relief. I was desperate enough to try anything. Upon my visit I spoke with the Doctor and explained what my problem was, she took my pulse and looked at my tongue. Then I was led to a room . I was a little nervous because I was unsure what would happen next. Well I stripped down to my boxers and laid face down on a massage table, the Doctor came in and started inserting the needles, hurt a little really not to bad. Then the electronic stimulus was applied to the needles . WOW, this was a strange sensation for me to say the least! My muscles started to quiver and pulse on there own. And I was then asked to take as much “pain” as possible. Well I’m little unnerved about this new experience but went with the program. After a few minutes I was able to relax and get through the 30 minutes. The staff did check on me often. After the 30 minutes of electronic acupuncture, I did have the Chinese Fire Cupping, followed by a deep tissue 15 minute massage. For me there was at least a 60% improvement immediately. I felt like crying. After the many chiropractor visits and other deep tissue massages this was amazing to have such improvement and after searching for treatments finally find one with tangible results! I’ve been twice so far and had at least a another 20% improvement from my second visit.”

Pregnancy

I have gone to Troy Acupuncture multiple times over the past 5 years and have found it helpful each time.
The first time I went because I had not had a normal period for the past two years.  I always had cramping, it was never regular and sometimes I skipped it completely.  I asked my doctor about it and she said it was normal.  Well, it really isn’t normal when your body stops doing what it is supposed to do so I went to Troy Acupuncture.  Within three sessions I had a normal period and have not had one single problem with it since…..that was 5 years ago.
After that, I had been trying for over a year to get pregnant with no results.  Again went to consult Dr. Xu.  Within two sessions (about 1 month apart) I was pregnant.
This past month I went back to her for terrible neck pain I was having.  I had been in a car accident and was having numbness down my arm, dizziness, and I was taking time off of work because I was in so much pain.  I had been to urgent care and the emergency room and all anyone could recommend was rest, and NSAIDS.
Finally I went to Dr. Xu and after one treatment the dizziness was gone and the pain had diminished about 80%.  It was truly amazing.
I think Dr. Xu does a fantastic job and I have always gotten great results.  I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat.  Needles are never fun, but you will get great results.

A-Fib

Going to the Troy Acupuncture Center was my first experience with acupuncture and I had excellent results. I decided to try acupuncture to complement drug therapy for treating atrial fibrillation (aka A-Fib). I first met with the director of the center to discuss how acupuncture might help and to give her summaries of recent studies that suggested acupuncture could reduce the number and severity of A-Fib episodes. After listening to her reactions and suggestions, I decided to go once-a-week for two months followed by bi-weekly or monthly treatments only if the initial acupuncture program was effective which it was. I’m now going every other week and the results have been dramatic–many fewer and less severe A-Fib episodes than in the past. In contrast to another reviewer’s comments about difficulties communicating with the director and her staff, I haven’t had any problems. Yes, Chinese is their native language and at times it’s a challenge to be understood or understand. However, I’ve found the director willing to listen as well as express herself differently if repetition is needed. FYI I can hardly feel when the very acupuncture needles are inserted or removed. And when I do, a second or two later, there is absolutely no discomfort at all.

Aches & Pains

I went into Troy Acupuncture Center to get a massage to help my left knee. I had 2 prior surgeries and was told that a knee replacement was in my near future. After mentioning this to Doctor Xu she asked if I had decided on this course of action. I replied no but I didn’t have much choice. She recommended acupuncture. After having the first treatment session I was walking pain free for the first time in 45 years. Now I am able to do things like go up and down stairs with no pain or difficulties. This has been a miracle for me since my work sometimes requires me to be on my feet for 16 hours a day. Some of my fellow workers having heard my story are planning to go for treatment. I cannot thank Doctor Xu enough for this miracle.

Back Pain

I will be returning soon for my third visit to Troy Acupuncture. 5 stars doesn’t give enough credit to this facility or the staff. Dr. Xu is friendly, compassionate as well as very skilled in what she does.. I have had more than one back surgery but still remained in pain almost daily. I was skeptical about acupuncture but decided I had nothing to lose at this point. After the first visit I left feeling energized and more comfortable than I had in a long time. Second visit was even better and this time the electrical stimulation was used with the needles. For the first time in several years I am hopeful that I can start to feel better. My walking was from a car to store being slouched over and sometimes using a cane. My friends can’t believe the improvement and were as skeptical about this technique as I was. I now have a friend that is going this week to try it for pain in her legs. If you have ever thought about it please keep an open mind and give it a try. I really feel it has worked for me so far and hope it continues. Dr Xu and Thank You for the help you have given me. You have a great staff and I would highly recommend you for acupuncture!!

Before I came to Troy Acupuncture Center, I had severe pains in my lower back and both of my knees. I had been to the medical doctor many times now, but was unable to cure the pain. Eventually it got so bad that I couldn’t take it. I decided to try acupuncture, I was very desperate.
When I got there, the Doctor greeted me nicely, and she listened to my condition thoroughly. Then she explained to me what she could do. I was a bit afraid of needles, but she assured me that her needles were painless. I wasn’t sure, but when she started inserting them, I did not feel anything. Then she attached a little device that made tingles along the needles, however, the feeling was very pleasant.
I didn’t know what to expect out my first session, but after 2 weeks of treatment, I can truthfully say that my pains in my knees are 80% better, and my back pains are completely gone. It felt pretty good having less pain, and I will continue and hope for no pain at all! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who has pain of any sort!

I went to see Dr. Xu for back pain, anxiety, and sleep disorders in May 2013. It was my first time trying acupuncture, and I found the establishment clean, comfortable, and inviting. I also found Dr. Xu to be patient, caring, attentive, and very knowledgeable. After my first session, I immediately began to see a noticeable improvement in my back pain and anxiety–something I have suffered from tremendously for years. Within a week, my pain was gone, and it stayed gone for 5 months! I recently went back for a second acupuncture session with Dr. Xu on Saturday, October 26, 2013, and my back pain was almost instantly gone. Dr. Xu has helped me tremendously, and I firmly believe in her practice and ability to heal. Give Troy Acupuncture Center a try!

I have used the services here for a while now to include acupuncture, massage and cupping. The Doctor is amazing and caring, and the staff is so kind and curtesy. I can not speak highly enough about this establishment .  I have recommended many of my family and friends and they love the services. My treatments here have contributed to my major change to my health and I  would  not think of going elsewhere .

I have been a migraine sufferer for almost 4 years now and to make things worse the botox injections that supposed to help them went terribly wrong and I developed  botulism like symptoms.I went from cleveland clinic to mayo clinic looking for some relief from this torture with no success and the just kept telling  me that that’s nothing they could do but I had to wait it out and hope that t doesn’t go for years on end.Since i was not getting help from medical community and the severity of my symptoms was still going strong I decided to try alternative medicine to check  if it would calm my muscles and nervous system down.and help my with muscle weakness and breathing problems.
I meet with the doc Xu in mid august and I was almost in tears explaining to her how much i am suffering and how long this thing has been going.She understood and explained to me what my muscles and nerves are going thru due to the paralyzing effect of the toxin and in top of some  diet changes she recomended that I try fire cupping and acupuncture later when my muscles would gain some strength.
Fast forward 6 months later thanks to her I am doing much better ,my muscles are getting their tone back,I am able to do more activities and i was finally able to sleep a good 8 hours.I been doing cupping every week and acupuncture when I have some small relapse and that I believe and the knowledge of the doctor has made my pain much more bearable and has calmed my anxiety a lot.
I truly recommend her to anyone that is looking for some relief cause she is very good at what she does and extremely  knowledgeable at nerve and muscle pain causes and treatments.

Back Pain

After a week of severe back pain, two urgent care visits and four different types of pills my wife finally got the acupuncture treatment. She walked in with pain and walked out with no pain, in less than an hour, just like flipping a switch. Thank you Dr. Xu.

 Sciatica Nerve Pain

I suffered from sciatica nerve pain and numbness down my right side. The acupuncture with electrical stimulus gave me at least 50% relief on the first visit, and another 15- 20 % relief on the second visit. The two visits changed the way I feel, live, and function.

I have been to 2 other acupuncture clinics. Troy Acupuncture and Dr. Xu are the best by far.

Pain from Cancer Treatments

I went for Acupuncture to help with my cancer treatments. I had pain in my right arm due to lymphedemia. After my first Acupuncture treatment, my pain went away. So I went back for another session and feel that it helps me deal with the chemo and feel better!

Knots & Tension

The acupuncture and massage I received following provided much needed relief from the knots/tension I have been experiencing in my neck/shoulders and back. I would definitely recommend both

 Three weeks ago I was resigned to life with out exercise and golf. Bad legs from poor circulation and to much surgery. My friend John Holliday suggested many time to dry Troy Accupiuncture, and three Tuesdays ago I did. Wonderful results. Better range of motion in both knees. Exercising, no golf yet,only up 3 times a night to the bath room. Appetite down., losing weight. the combination of Accupuncture, Massage & Cupping is wonderful. I have had acupuncture since 1988, and she it the best!

 Cervical Disk Herniation

The therapists at this center are very competent and dedicated. I recently had cervical disk herniation. They were able to accelerate my recovery significantly through electro-acupuncture + massage + cupping therapy. I bought packages of ten sessions from them.While their premises may not be as posh as many of the fancy, but expensive, setups, they are very clean and very well maintained. The staff is very friendly.While language is still a small barrier with some of their employees, what met my approval was the fact that they are trying hard to eliminate the same. Highly recommended!

Severe Back Pain

After a week of severe back pain, two urgent care visits, four different pills, including acetaminophen and steroids, my wife finally got the acupuncture treatment.
