"I have been going to Dr. Li for about a year. When I first went to see her I was in pretty bad shape. I had been suffering with severe muscle spasms due to degenerative disk disease and sciatic. I originally was referred to a pain specialist by my primary care doctor however, I explained to the pain specialist that I did not want to take any narcotic pain medication and that I wanted to control my pain as holistic as possible, that's when he stated that he could refer me to an acupuncturist. As soon as I received my referral in the mail, I scheduled my appointment with Dr. Li. I was a little concerned with getting needles stuck in me because I don't like needles but I was in so much pain at that point that I really didn't even care. Dr. Li took the time to do a very thorough assessment of all my issues and she even used a diagnostic machine and explained to me what was going on. She was very comforting and I really didn't even feel the needles to much. On the days I was really in a lot of pain would also use a technique called cupping which really helped. She would also recommend certain herbs to me that helped in my recovery. Here I am a year later and I can truly say that I feel amazing. She has really helped with me being able to regain my life back with out no more pain. I would really recommend Dr. Li if you want to take control of your pain issues with a holistic approach."

"I want to say thank you for the tremendous service Dr. Li has done for me. Just a few weeks ago, I had so much pain running through my lower back that I couldn't sleep at night. With Dr. Li's Acupuncture treatment, I immediately feel into a deep slumber in their cozy clinic, and after a few treatments, my condition improved to the point that my insomnia completely disappeared. As a satisfied patient, I highly recommend you will go to see Dr Li!"

"I never imagined what acupuncture would do for me until I met Dr. Li. It was a good thing that I believed her because after only ONE treatment my headache had instantly cleared. After three treatments, my headaches completely dissipated. It was such an unbelievable experience, if you have any headache related ailments, go and give Dr. Li a try! She is the best at what she does and you’ll never regret your decision. "

"Pain relief and healing Dr. Li provided me... I have severe arthritis on the knee. I have been searching for a way to manage my severe arthritis knee pain. Three years ago, my wife found Dr. Li, a Doctor of Oriental Medicine and Licensed Acupuncturist who provides care at private practice as well as at Cedar Sinai Medical Center. She also teaches at Dongguk University of Oriental Medicine in Los Angeles. Since discovering Dr. Li three years ago, I feel I have a second lease on my knee and I am able to resume a very active lifestyle including long walk, swimming, and dancing. For the first time in years, I was able to dance the night away at a friend's wedding party. The day before I had an acupuncture treatment with Dr. Li. In addition to my knee in other instances, Dr. Li was able to effectively treat my allergy, flu, muscle strain, and back pain. Dr. Li is very knowledgable and very caring. We feel lucky to have discovered her."

"When I first met Dr. Li, I was recovering from a very difficult miscarriage. Dr. Li helped me recover physically and emotionally and she also helped restore my self-confidence. Following that, she assisted me with my fertility treatments in a complimentary capacity. Miraculously, I got pregnant, carried my baby to term, and delivered vaginally a very healthy baby girl. Throughout my pregnancy and postpartum care, Dr. Li was a wonderful calm and assuring presence. I was particularly impressed by her expertise but also her willingness to send me to my MD when she thought it was necessary. This shows real wisdom and humility. My story is nothing short of AMAZING. I recommend Dr. Li wholeheartedly."

“For years, my husband and I have been trying to conceive a baby by ourselves through the help of our physician. However, our efforts have failed because my body wouldn’t respond to infertility medication. I went to see Dr. Li exclusively for Acupuncture and Herb treatment for 8 months, I found out that I had become pregnant, with absolutely no medication! Dr. Li also helped cure my constant lower pain and Flu during my pregnancy. Now my baby girl is 11 months old, healthy, and adorably cute. My whole family is happy and thankful for Dr. Li’s acupuncture treatment.”

"Dr. Li has helped my wife tremendously while being treated at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Her helped my wife with pain relief and actually sleep when no other was effective. She is VERY good at what she does, professional and very kind and considerate. I recommend her services without any reservation and offer many thanks for all the times she has helped my wife :)"

"The short time I spend with Dr. Li every week is the most special time! She is wonderful in helping reassign my goals, re-center my thoughts, and keeping me focused. She is gentle, caring and so intuitive. Her knowledge and experience astounds me – it is expansive, diverse, and consistent. I appreciate your care and warm welcome each visit. Thanks, Dr. Li!"
Melissa L., Beverly Hills
"I started a weight-loss program again with Dr. Li due to the good results with my weight-loss, and was amazed to see the scale drop, drop, and drop to lose 22 lbs over 4 weeks. I honestly did not think I would lose much weight, maybe just a few pounds, but I was interested in at least cleaning up my digestion for my overall health. I was amazed, I mean amazed, to watch my pants loosen and the weight drop. It seems almost magical to me, but it's true: IT WORKS. Thanks for Dr. Li’s acupuncture treatment! "
Jackie M., Santa Monica
''Dr Li and her staff are very positive. Every time I call I am able to talk to someone right away or they return my call the same day. Knowing that I can reach Dr. Li or her staff and get any answer I need is important to me. The positive attitude from Dr.Li or her staff always makes me as a patient feel good... Thank you, Dr Li!"

"I had eczema on my feet, which showed broken skin and cracking. After treatment with Dr. Li, I am at least 98% better now. Thank you so much Dr. Li."
