Dr. Janet Yu is extremely knowledgeable on a myriad of health issues. I have never had acupuncture treatments before and after two treatments, my allergies were so much so much better! She also treated my frozen shoulders and I’m happy to say I’m ready for golf season. My range of motion is so much better and improved after two treatments.
