When I first came to Dr. Liu, I had been struggling with a left sided frozen shoulder which took 1-1/2 years to resolve and a right sided frozen shoulder which had started eight months before I arrived at HanLing Clinic. I had tried all modalities; my regular physician who referred me to an orthopedic surgeon, injections, physical therapy, massage, cold and hot packs, Ibuprofen … I still struggled with pain day night and now a second frozen shoulder. When I came to Dr. Liu, he told me that he could cure my shoulder in 4-5 weeks. I followed his regime, came twice a week for 4 weeks and sure enough in 4 weeks my arm had freedom of movement, the pain was minimal and I am on the road to recovery. Dr. Liu also cured my hip pain, a terrible headache and other maladies with acupuncture and put me on a special diet. When I came in the first time, I could hardly walk up the stairs, was in constant pain in my entire body and fatigued all the time. Today, I am mostly energetic, only slightly achy and am several pounds lighter. This is miraculous to me. I am so happy I followed the recommendations of another friend cured by Dr. Liu of an old whiplash and constant neck pain. Also, upon a visit to Phoenix, another acupuncture clinic there highly recommended Dr. Liu as “the best acupuncturist in Tucson”. I have to say I am in total agreement with these persons as well as recommending Dr. Liu to my close personal friends. Dr. Liu and his staff are kind, friendly, professional and highly effective. With Sincere Gratitude

The most amazing experience. I did not expect to feel the way I did when I left there. My friends even asked me what I had done that day because I was abnormally relaxed and glowing.

— YM

Genuine improvement in my medical condition. Generous time spent with me and no rushing. Great patient education offered.

— Pavan

I am fortunate to have very good health. However, I was experiencing a low level of energy. HanLing Acupuncture combines old world techniques with state of the art equipment including an EMAS. The EMAS identified the problems causing the low energy and the acupuncture brought my energy back up to normal. I feel the difference.

— S.G

Pleasant and not the least bit painful. I have sent many of my Splendido friends to HanLing with very good results.

— Jo C

Everyone is gentle and capable.

— Jonathan B

Very pleasant. Feet feel better.

— Caroline

My experience over the past five years is a high quality health care, caring and professional. A vast improvement of my health condition far exceeding western medical experiences of being just a number among other people and a try this prescription and see what happens.

They made sure every single question I had was answered, and are always available if I think of any more questions I want answered. Their staff is the most friendly, welcoming staff I’ve ever dealt with. They are so warm and professional, and make the whole experience that much better. I was so impressed with the progress I was able to make after visiting them. All my questions were answered, and I feel a lot more confident and hopeful about the future. The office was very easy to locate. I didn’t have any trouble finding it at all.

They were friendly and made me feel at home. I really appreciated their hospitality. They always make an extra effort to make me feel respected and attended to. They always listen to every question or concern I may have. Not only did they thoroughly review my medical history before I started treatment, they sat down and discussed it with me too. They asked me questions, and made sure they had all the information they needed before treatment. I knew that the treatment I received would be more accurate and effective because they took the time to review my medical history. I’ve been to other acupuncture clinics that left me unattended for quite a while in the treatment room, but not here. They would never leave me unattended, and they always go the extra mile to make me feel cared for. They truly go out of their way to make everyone feel equally respected and cared for. I’ve seen client favoritism at tons of places, and I really appreciate the extra effort they make to avoid that here.

Very positive. Steve takes the time to listen to your concerns. He is very knowledgeable and has the ability to direct that knowledge to focus on the issues you are dealing with. He is much more than just an acupuncturist. He deals with all aspects of health including nutrition, exercise, and purpose.

HanLing got me back on my feet! : When I ruptured a disk in my back, I looked everywhere for pain relief and a return to normal activity. I was contemplating surgery when someone suggested I try acupuncture. They gave me HanLing’s information and I set up an appointment. After the first appointment I didn’t feel much difference but I slept better. After the second and third visit, I was almost back to normal. Acupuncture really does work. The HanLing clinic was professional and very clean. Since going to HanLing I have been to other acupuncture clinics and so far HanLing has been the best.

Chronic Back Pain: More than twenty years ago I was diagnosed with spondylolisthesis, resulting from an injury in early childhood when I had been hit by a car. Due to the fracture of the L4 transverse process, that vertebra has a tendency to slip forward against the spinal cord, a debilitating and indescribably painful condition. In adulthood, the slippages became more frequent with each passing year. The quality of my life was severely degraded during a three-year period when I had pain more often than not. That’s when I decided to try acupuncture for the first time and made my first appointment with you. I told myself I would have to give acupuncture a fair chance, since I thought it would probably take months of treatment to alleviate such long-term pain. Incredibly, however, the very first treatment took away all of the pain. That is not an exaggeration — it was amazing to me! That was eight years ago. Since then, I have had several appointments with HanLing — sometimes for maintenance and sometimes because I severely threw out my back. Each visit has produced the same positive results — a painless, relaxed state (in which the spine is able to realign) and the sense of well-being. Steve and everyone at HanLing Acupuncture Healing Center, I just want you to know how much I appreciate the efficacy of your treatments, as well as your gentle and compassionate approach. Thank you for being a person who sincerely strives to help people. You have helped to make my physical condition far more manageable than I thought would be possible.

Hand Injury & Asthma: I came for help and became a patient at the HanLing Acupuncture Center in Tucson Arizona about two years ago. My right hand had curled fingers which were frequently in spasm, and I could not open or close my fist. It was impossible for me to hold a cup of tea or a spoon in my hand. I had no grip or mobility in my fingers. I was diagnosed by an orthopedist, a hand specialist, with the Dupuytren contracture. I was told that my condition could only be remedied by undercutting my tendons, making them longer, and “cleaning” the thickened tissue around them. There were no guarantees about the outcome of the surgery. I was really scared of surgery. For many years I have practiced tai-chi and used my right hand for holding weapons such as swords. When I came for an interview with Dr. Liu he has told me that he has little experience with Dupuytren contracture, but that he will try to use acupuncture, laser beam and infrared light. After several treatments I was able to hold the steering wheel, and I was able to open and close my fist. I continue this treatment weekly with excellent results and no surgery has been necessary. I am also an asthma patient with occasional flares of difficulties in breathing and severe cough. Since I have been treated for asthma with acupuncture by Dr. Liu, my episodes have decreased, and I have not needed steroids or antibiotics, which were depleting my immune system. There is no way to express my gratitude to Dr. Liu. He has given me mobility in my right hand and a normal style of life and my immune system has grown stronger. I highly recommend Dr. Liu’s treatments. I have total trust in his diagnosis and his procedures. I hope that his review will help the other patients with such conditions.

Chronic Pain: Acupuncturist Steve Liu at the HanLing Acupuncture Healing Center has been providing an alternative to treating pain using acupuncture versus the continuing dependency on narcotics that unfortunately many veterans chose. …Steve has treated me using needle and laser acupuncture, heat lamp and soft tissue massage of scaring along my spine. On the very first visit, he found soft tissue scaring along my spine during an examination of my back for pain. That is, after decades of seeing many orthopedists who never conducted such a hands-on extensive examination. Steve is very thorough and on your first visit he will explore with your medical history to come up with a treatment plan tailored just for you. Mr. Liu also has a prior background in electrical engineering so he is able to use that knowledge, expertise and talent especially using laser acupuncture

Plantar Fasciitis : After suffering from plantar fasciitis for over four months, I went to the HanLing Acupuncture Healing Center for some relief. I had tried traditional methods for dealing with this condition including daily physical therapy, ice, anti-inflammatory medications, insoles, and eventually an injection and nothing alleviated the pain. After six sessions with Steve Liu, which included the FAST technique, all of the plantar fasciitis was gone. The sessions included cross-fiber massage, electro-acupuncture, far-infrared heat, and low level laser therapy. This therapy worked well to restore my foot and relieve my symptoms. Steve Liu and Wen Ting and their staff were outstanding in meeting my needs and I highly recommend this procedure for anyone suffering from plantar fasciitis.

Knee Pain : I am writing to express my gratitude for relieving me of a painful knee injury which I had sustained in December. While I was home visiting in Minnesota, I fell on a patch of ice, and twisted my leg. My knee hurt when I walked, and I had to put a pillow between my legs while I slept because it was very sensitive. I returned to Arizona thinking it would improve. However, the pain continued to bother me. I saw an orthopedic specialist, who authorized an MRI. The MRI results showed a tear of the ligament. I believe the doctor would have recommended surgery. I saw the ad for HanLing Acupuncture in the yellow pages, and decided I would seek your help. Dr. Liu educated me about my knee and where it was injured, and how he would be able to help me. We set up a series of sessions, which I was told might be six-ten appointments. After my first session, I did not have to put a pillow between my knees while I slept because it was no longer sensitive. After each treatment, the pain level continued to decrease. At my sixth session, I had no pain, and continue to have no pain. I want to thank Dr. Liu and everyone at HanLing Acupuncture Healing Center.

Back and Ankle Chronic Pain: Having suffered several years pain through a trapped sciatic nerve, my family recommended that I should look for relief with acupuncture and that Steve Liu at the HanLing Acupuncture Healing Center, in their opinion, was the best man to carry out the treatment. Incidentally, I was also suffering from a damaged ligament in my ankle following a fall. After an initial consultation and ten one-hour treatments, both pain problems have now disappeared. Treatments included acupuncture, friction massage, stretching, and laser heat. Throughout my visits to HanLing Acupuncture Center, I have found Steve to be friendly, enthusiastic, and informative regarding recovery treatments and methods, and thoroughly recommend him and his staff at the acupuncture center, to others looking for pain relief.

Chronic Leg Pain : Last year I fell down and hurt my leg. The pain was so acute that it paralyzed me. I would scream from the pain and cry wishing to die. Throughout the year I saw four neurologists, an orthopedic doctor, a chiropractor, a physical therapist, and have had around six visits to urgent care, and two to the emergency room. They all told me I have no cure and prescribed pain medication to ease the pain. From Gabapentin to Naproxen, to Ibuprofen, etc. Eight months passed by with daily pain, and I was getting worse, to the point where I was immobilized. I was even told I needed surgery, but the doctors were not sure if this would heal my problem. My torture continued until one day a friend came to visit and told me about HanLing Acupuncture Healing Center here in Tucson and how they healed his mother and father. So, without a doubt, I made an appointment to see Steve Liu. After the third visit and with your acupuncture and laser treatments I was able to stand up and walk. The killing pain was gone, and thanks to God and to HanLing Acupuncture I was able to start living again. HanLing Acupuncture is like no other in town. They truly show care and concern for your patients, no matter their condition. I have not seen such kindhearted people like them, and I recommend anyone who is in pain to come to HanLing. Also, the herbal medicine they prescribed is of great help. Thank you so much and God Bless you, Steve and Wen, and give you a long and good life to be able to help people like you have helped me.

Back Pain: After three trips to Europe, which entailed a great deal of walking, I found myself to be in a great deal of pain. The diagnosis was not encouraging — arthritis and bulging discs — with not much effective advice/medications from doctors. A friend, who had a broken back, suggested acupuncture with Dr. Liu, as she had success with his acupuncture treatments. It was a happy day for my lower back and hips when Dr. Liu began acupuncture treatments. I started with three times a week and then, after a while, the pain was ameliorated by two acupuncture treatments and one laser treatment. The pain was relieved after just a few treatments. My pain has subsided by 85% and the improvement has allowed me to resume a more active lifestyle and exercise regime. Happy days!

— DB

This was a most informative and illuminating diagnostic experience. Thank you for helping me identify the source (or possible source) of my pain problem. I will try and follow the path you directed me towards.

— Steve

I came in with acute back pain that woke me up at night and was unlike anything I had ever experienced. I couldn’t stand up. In two treatments, Wen Ting had my back “back” to normal. For the first time in three nights, I slept comfortably and woke up and could stand up without passing out! Amazing!

— Cathleen M

I came in with five fractured ribs and prayers for a miracle. I was treated with laser three times per week for nearly three weeks. I’ve always believed in alternative medicine. My experience with the laser was amazingly successful. Great folks at HanLing!

— Alice O

I have been coming to HanLing Acupuncture for about a year for treatment of neck pain and lower back pain. I now have much less pain and greater range of motion. Steve Liu always explains what he is doing and why it will help me. He recommends exercises to do at home that will help me.

— Diane

I have had treatment two times per week for three weeks so far. I appreciate that Dr. Liu examined me carefully, rather than relying on x-rays and other tests. I have less pain and more flexibility already and sleeping better.

Back and Ankle Pain: I could not be more pleased with my experience with Dr. Liu. I suffered two separate health issues with a strained back and ankle over the past six months. I was tired of taking pain pills and got no results from a chiropractor and my internist. On the recommendation of my son, I visited Dr. Liu for a diagnosis. This was my first experience with acupuncture, so I was somewhat apprehensive. Dr. Liu was very attentive to my issues and provided me with good advice on my diet and eliminating the pain medication. He provided me with a combination of treatments for both my back and ankle that included acupuncture, infrared heat and light. Within a few weeks, I was feeling much better and am now fully recovered with new principles of how to take better care of myself. I could not be more pleased. Thank you Dr. Liu.

— Larry

Chronic Pain: I want to thank Steve and the staff at HanLing Acupuncture for making it possible for me to enjoy life again. When I came to Steve seven or eight months ago, I only “hoped” to reduce the pain enough to get off the pain medication. I never dared hope to resume my former life with the exception of no more horseback riding in the Tucson desert. My life is no longer just pain as we’re making changes in my life. How great it was to be able to celebrate my anniversary last September in the Newport coast. Your acupuncture pain treatment changed my life.

— Michele

I want to thank you Steve Liu and your staff at HanLing Acupuncture Health Care for the excellent care I received. After almost five months of constant pain without relief from physical therapy or medical doctors, I came for a treatment of acupuncture. Steve Liu explained to me not only could he help, but was almost certain I would be pain free in about a month. Since as a former R.N. I was skeptical about acupuncture, but now I am aware that it works. This was my first experience with acupuncture, and finally I am pain free and able to resume my active life.

— Terry

Best Pain Treatment In Town: “I have been coming to this facility for over three months, and I must say Steve and his staff have been amazing. The treatments received, acupuncture, laser, and heat combined is ingenious. I would recommend this location to anyone who needs acupuncture treatment.

— Dorthy J

Much pain relief: Steve does a great job explaining the process and what he is going to do. Expert at needling. Much relief was given to my chronic knee issues and overall wellness.

— Suzanne J

I had tried intense physical therapy, pain management and was turned down for surgery by a neurosurgeon, so I welcomed the hope and with following Steve’s regime and exercises – I have a life!

TESTIMONIALS – Sports Injuries

Back Pain: My son is 17 and does competitive gymnastics. For the past 2 years, he has experienced regular back pain that was getting progressively worse. Using ice, heat, and 6 to 9 ibuprofen caplets per day did not help. Our orthopedic doctor offered no suggestions other than rest, which we tried. The MRI showed no abnormalities to treat. Nothing we tried seemed to make much difference or help. In the summer of 2013, we started with Dr. Liu, doing a twice weekly treatment of deep tissue massage, acupuncture, and heat/light for about a month and a half. Nathan stopped taking ibuprofen immediately. Within 4 weeks, he was improving, and now 4 months later he is virtually pain free with no medications. He now enjoys his 5 day per week gymnastics practices/training sessions.

Low Vision & Stroke: I would like to share my wonderful experience I had with my acupuncturist at HanLing Acupuncture Healing Center, Inc. for the following: 1) I had a stroke in 1993 and life was never the same after. My right side from head down to my toes was tingling, numb or painful. It was a lot of discomfort. Last year I tried acupuncture with the hope that something would happen. Sure enough, after a few sessions of acupuncture, and with Dr. Steve Liu’s expert, knowledgeable, and compassionate treatment, I now feel much better. 2) for the past seven years I have been undergoing eye treatment for my glaucoma, but there is no improvement. Last February, I started my low-vision acupuncture with Ms. Wen Ting, who is also knowledgeable, compassionate, and also an expert. After two weeks of treatment, I can now see clearly; no more glare when I drive at night. Indeed I am very thankful to these two wonderful persons who have helped me a lot. My sincere and heartfelt appreciation for a great job!!! Many, many thanks and my highest recommendations.

Many needles in my lower extremities to treat neuropathy. Kindness and attention to the treatment at every visit.

TESTIMONIALS – Headache/Migraine

I visited the HanLing Acupuncture Healing Center for help with migraine headaches, and found exactly what I needed. I’d spent several years taking prescription medication that I needed more and more frequently, but after following Dr. Steve Liu’s recommendations and having acupuncture treatments by both Dr. Liu and Dr. Wen Ting, I’m completely off the medication and have only infrequent minor headaches that are easily treated with herbal remedies. It truly feels like a miracle. Steve’s enthusiasm and interest in his work is almost contagious, and his knowledge and understanding coupled with Wen’s expertise and concern for patients, plus the friendly and caring staff makes a visit to HanLing Acupuncture Healing Center a great experience. I highly recommend them.

— DB

I would like to highly recommend Steve Liu. Steve helped me with migraine headaches that I had been suffering with on a daily basis for 10 years. I had been to many different Drs. Including the mayo clinic, various neurologists, chiropractors, pain specialists, migraine specialists, homeopathic Drs., etc., etc. No one had been able to help me. Steve agreed to treat me but he strongly recommended that I read the book “Heal your Headache-The 1-2-3 Program” by Dr. David Buchholz (a John Hopkins Dr.) I promptly picked up the book and started to follow the program. It was difficult at first because the book recommends you to stay off all medicine. It was tough sledding for about 4 weeks but I started to see improvement. During that time, I saw Steve for treatment twice a week and I believe that helped speed up the process. I have Steve to thank for getting me on the right track. I am happy to report that I no longer have the migraines! Life takes on a new meaning when you are not suffering with pain.
