Recently Dr. Xu was called by a patient from the hospital emergency room. She was found on her kitchen floor by her son unable to move due to immense sciatic nerve pain. Having trouble reaching Dr. Xu at the moment, her son panicked and called an ambulance to have his mom rushed to the hospital. As the patient shared from the hospital bed, it was the usual story – “drugs to treat the pain but no real solution”. She was still in pain and unable to walk. Within a couple hours of the incident Dr. Xu immediately after retrieving her voice message hurried to the hospital and with just a few minutes of acupuncture the patient was able to walk out of the hospital — the pain had been relieved.

Healers come in many forms and for this patient Dr. Xu was not just her doctor that day but her angel too!

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 l…

Over the past 7 years I have had problems controlling my drinking. I would have 3 to 4 high balls in the evening and at age 63 I would really regret it the next day. Dr Xu’s treatments have given me the will power to stop drinking completely. I feel great. Dr. Xu is now helping me with the ringing in my ears and my dependency on a prescription sleeping pill.

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 …

I have used the services here for a while now to include acupuncture, massage and cupping. The Doctor is amazing and cariing, and the staff is so kind and curtsey. 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 can not believe some of the other reviews , sound like a few winners to me.

I was diagnosed with moderate Bilateral Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. The pain in my hands had gotten so intense that I could not sleep more than an hour at a time at night, and the effected fingers in my hands were constantly numb. My Primary Care Physician (who I am very thankful for as well) was able to reduce the pain, swelling, and inflammation through prescription medications, and referred me to an Orthopedic Specialist. The Specialist determined that I would need a Carpal Tunnel Release surgery for both of my wrists. He told me that the recovery time from surgery could be anywhere from two to six weeks, possible “pillar-pain” in each wrist for up two to three months, scar tissue, and that the surgery may not eliminate all of my symptoms.

While at the Orthopedic Specialist’s office, I picked up a small informational brochure mentioning acupuncture. I had always been intrigued about this ancient form of medicine, and wondered if it could help. I found the Troy Acupuncture Center through…

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 t…

For nearly three years I had tried a combination of mental therapies, cognitive techniques, as well as, changes in diet and exercise to alleviate or eliminate an unpleasant and pervasive physical and emotional state. I suppose it can best be described as depression. Most of the time I was able to satisfy day to day functions, but without a positive state of mind or energy necessary to carry on for more than a week before succumbing to negative moods and exhaustion. Having used acupuncture some years past to end more than a decade’s worth of habitual cigarette smoking, it was one avenue I had not explored in regard to my circumstance. Given the variety of issues I was experiencing, I doubted it would be able to address them all.

I came to see Master Xu with a lengthy list of symptoms and grievances including depression, lack of mental focus, a loss of energy, weight gain, anxiety, and grief. Upon my first visit I was greeted warmly, given a diagnosis, and allowed to express concerns and…

I have had Vitiligio (a skin condition in which the skin loses its pigment) for 6 years and have seen all types of doctors only to be told them same thing time and time again, there is no cure. Frustrated with the growing irregular patches on my eyelids and hands, I came in to see Dr. Xu. I had never tried acupuncture before (as I am only 18) and knew this would be a long process. Yet, only after a month of treatment I began to see significant results! My patches are slowly getting their color back and overall I sleep better, and feel more energized and relaxed. Although I am in college and have a hectic schedule, Dr. Xu has been very understanding and flexible. She has been encouraging and caring from day one and I plan on continuing with my treatment until the pigmentation comes back in its entirety.

I came in to see Dr. Xu for infertility issues. I got off the Pill and my body wasn’t able to start ovulating on its own even after 5 months. My OBGYN recommended that I take Clomid or Femara to induce ovulaton, but I wanted to try acupuncture first. In just one month with Dr. Xu I got pregnant! Dr. Xu was so kind and worked with my schedule – there were many 6:00 am appointments I needed to have because of my job. And not only did I get pregnant, but I noticed other health improvements too. I feel more calm and less anxious now in general, and I can sleep much better. I have needed over the counter or prescribed sleep aids for over a year, and now I can fall asleep with no problem. I am going to continue to see Dr. Xu throughout my pregnancy because I know it will make me stronger and the pregnancy easier.

I came to troy acupuncture center for loosing weight. I was 162 pounds and everybody told me I seriously needed to get skinnier. I tried acupuncture and there was great results. The first session I lost 4 pounds, but gradually I lost more and more until I was 137 pounds! Also, their fire moving cupping was really relaxing and I came back for doing it. If you haven’t tried cupping, you really should. Now I look fabulous, and I would totally recommend troy acupuncture center for loosing weight(and relaxing).

I was referred to Dr. Xu Shuyun last year for tinnitus. I had been dealing with it for several months, my ENT told me that I would have to live with it. I decided that this was not what I was just going to “live with”. So after a lot of research and inquiries I was referred to Dr. Xu and with in a month / 6 visits I found relief and shortly after it has diminished almost completly. I do follow up visits to relieve stress, sinus and TMJ.

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 bought an acupuncture groupon really not knowing what to expect, but 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. (yes treatment could be explained a little better for first timers like me) 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 stim…

I’ve recently seen Dr. Xu to address a digestive issue and have noticed a dramatic improvement in just a few sessions of treatment. In the short time I’ve known her she has demonstrated a sound knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as skilled technique. On one occasion Dr. Xu made time to see me on short notice on a Sunday afternoon to treat an unexpected ear ache. Dr. Xu is a caring practitioner who has a passion for her work and a genuine concern for her patients.
