They do such a great job of never overbooking appointments, even though they are extremely popular. I know for a fact that they have lots of business, but I've never had to wait a long time in a crowded waiting room like other places I've been too. I couldn't believe how knowledgeable and well-informed the staff was. They were able to answer all my questions, except the ones they needed to have their boss's input on. It was great to be able to talk to such a skilled staff. Their office was the absolute perfect temperature. It was so nice to be able to get out of the weather outside and sit in a relaxing, comfortable office. I felt that they really valued my health and happiness because they followed up even after my appointment just to check up on me. It was such a nice gesture that made a huge difference. They went out of their way to make me feel special and respected, and were very sympathetic to my situation. I've never been treated with more kindness and empathy.
When I came to East West Wellness Center on Friday, I could barely lift my right arm; I had excruciating pain in my right shoulder. After one acupuncture treatment, I could lift my arm straight out as well as straight up. I had very little pain in my shoulder. Dr. Ji identified where my pain was coming from. She put the needles in the right place. (By the way, the needles do not hurt). and after the treatment, I felt so much better.
The restrooms were very well-stocked at this provider's office. They always have toilet seat covers, paper towels and toilet paper and never run out. 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. I couldn't believe how great the clinic looked. It was very obvious that they took pride in the appearance. It was one of the best looking clinics I've ever seen. I will absolutely return. I had an amazing experience, and they were by far the best I've ever seen. I couldn't believe how much of a difference my appointment with them made. When I left I felt the best I ever have.
I began acupuncture 8+ years ago with Hong Ji with the interest of attaining better overall health. I did not realize at the time how important an investment it was going to be for me and my overall health. I also did not appreciate the depth of study and history behind the practice of Acupuncture. Hong Ji has proven her knowledge with a special focus to individual treatment. Throughout these years, Hong Ji has successfully treated stress, anxiety, insomnia, sugar cravings. Her treatment was pivotal to the healing process of a neck injury and a complex knee injury. Hong Ji has allowed me to become more focused and given me great insight to how I can attain good health, energy and confidence while she continues to treat and cure. 5 stars for Hong Ji !
I have suffered from hayfever and seasonal allergies for over 30 years. During this time I have tried allergy shots and numerous allergy medications, all with minimal results. After coming down with an allergy attack last month, I asked Dr Ji if there was anything she can do to help me. Incredibly she was able to relieve all my symptoms (stuffy nose, sinus congestion, etc) in just one acupuncture visit. I feel so much better now, even with all the pollen in the air! And I can now sleep with the windows open. Thank you Dr. Ji!!!!

This letter is to thank you and express my total confidence in your healing processes at your clinic East West Wellness. We are feeling a lot better. With your treatments of acupuncture, and herbs, I am on the road to better health. For my acid reflex condition, I tried everything, doctors just want to "mask" symptoms. They do not want to find the cause.
Hong Ji Listens to her patients concerns and responds with kindness. I feel it says a great deal that I have traveled 600 miles from South Carolina to visit her clinic. I also feel better emotionally, as I am aware it is a body, mind connection. I was tired of being tired.
East West Wellness Center realizes each patient has individual concerns and problems. Many doctors apply a "one size fits all" approach to their patients.
I will continue treatment with East West Wellness Center. I appreciate the honesty and kindness I have experienced.
Because of my high blood pressure, I had been looking for alternative medicine (vitamins, minerals, herbs, etc) for about a year. I never considered acupuncture because of the culture. A lady at work was telling me about her results after going to acupuncture, so I decided to try it. After only seven acupuncture treatments, my doctor reduced my blood pressure and diuretic medicine. I am very pleased with the treatment Hong Ji has provided. I only wish I had know Hong Ji sooner.
I am a 60 year old female who had taken HRT for 10 years. After consulting my breast surgeon (12 breast biopsies, all benign, thankfully) and my general practitioner, I decided to stop the hormones. My mother died of breast cancer, and I feared the risk of continuing that therapy. However, without the hormones I began experiencing severe hot flashes, something that had not occurred before HRT. The intense flashes would happen 10 - 12 times a day, my face and upper body would turn bright red (quite embarrassing when you're in mid-conversation with someone), and I would drip with sweat. At night I'd often have to change night clothes and bed sheets. This pattern persisted for 3 years. A friend mentioned someone she knew who had been cured of hot flashes through acupuncture treatment. My general practitioner was willing to refer me to a qualified, Chinese acupuncturist. I located Hong Ji and East-West Wellness Center on the Blue Cross Blue Shield website, her office is only a few miles from my home.
After 9 prescribed sessions I had some relief in the number of daily occurrences, and the flashes were less intense. 9 more treatments were prescribed, and there was more relief. I rarely have them at night anymore, usually only 3-5 per day, and they are shorter in duration than ever before.
I would definitely recommend Hong Ji as an acupuncturist, she is very thorough in gleaning your background information, and she had a calming effect on me. She taught me so much about organ 'chi', I truly enjoyed each of the visits (especially the foot massages!!). I highly recommend her technique.
When I went to see Hong Ji in June. First I had so many problems that if somebody will ask me what my problems were. It would be easy to say what I did not have than what I had since there were they were so many.
Cervical disc problems in the neck, my shoulder and the whole back hurt. I could not close my Left hand. My stomached always felt distended. I was allergic to a lot of food, such as sulfate, chemicals, wheat, milk, soy and even banana. Whatever I eat, I had rash. I almost came to a point that there was nothing I could eat, which worried me most. I felt depressed too. Besides, I was very bad tempered.
All these years I went to different doctors and they kept giving me cortisone, Allegro etc, none of these helped me. I was getting worse and worse. Then I developed rashes in all my body from what I eat, and my stomach had the acid reflux, pain, gas etc.
HongJi started working on me in June. By now Nov 18, 02 my reflux is little. My pain from my back is gone, my hand can be closed and I can eat more variety of foods. My anxiety is totally gone and I feel very good. My allergies to sulfate, chemicals, wheat, milk, soy and even banana are much better. Right now I feel my quality of life has improved at lease a 90%. And I feel great.
Acupuncture is one of the best natural systems that I have ever had to treat diseases. I recommended Acupuncture and Hong Ji highly. And I warn people no medications because it has so many side effects.
