Pain Management Testimonials

"I have been successfully treated by Dr. Xiao for 2 very different conditions.

1) I suffered a CTD / RSI hand/wrist injury due to my profession. Rehabilitation doctors are not trained to detect minor amounts of inflammation and use a pain scale of 1-10 to quantify a patient's condition, or use expensive and uncomfortable diagnostic tests. For a minor inflammatory condition, hand therapy and anti-inflammatory medicines were the prescribed course of action. Unfortunately, a minor onset of more inflammation from overuse is not detectable by the hand therapist either, who is also trained with the pain scale. Dr. Xiao is an expert detecting minor amounts of inflammation and could identify both where and how I sustained it. She used a combination of deep tissue diagnosis and healing massage, herbal remedies, and acupuncture to remove the inflammation.
Now, I am working with both Dr. Xiao and the hand therapist to build muscle and function. I have regained a tremendous amount of strength and am well on the way towards a full recovery.
2) I had a persistent skin irritation lasting over a year that my dermatologist could not identify and prescribed steriodal creams for. Dr. Xiao recognized it right away as an energy imbalance in the liver channel. She used a combination of herbal remedies and acupuncture and cleared it away permanently after 4 months of treatments.
She is easily one of the best diagnosticians and practitioners that I have ever met, and she truly loves her work. I cannot say enough about how she has dramatically improved my life."

"I have been practicing Emergency and Urgent care Medicine for over 15 years but yet am not interested in prescription pain medication or surgery for chronic low back pain. I discovered Dr. Xiao last year. She has been working with me and I have experienced tremendous improvement in my symptoms through acupuncture and manual therapy. I will continue to seek her treatment for ongoing care and have referred my patients to her who are interested in exploring other methods of treatment for their conditions. Thank you Dr. Xiao!"

"I recently visited GWCM for my lower back pain that was so bad it was affecting my walking, sitting and everyday life. I also was experiencing a shooting pain down my left leg that was so sharp I almost couldn't get up stairs at work. I went in was blown away by the office, there are multiple treatment rooms, a great atmospshere and the staff is so nice and helpful.

I saw Dr. Xiao first and she went through ever question you could imagine, she was very in-depth, which made me feel good knowing she cared. She recommended TuiNa massage and acupuncture. After 1 visit my pain level went from a 9 to a 1-2 and after my second visit last week it is almost completely gone.

I cannot say enough about the care given and the help that I received! I would recommend to anyone for pain relief and so much more, they truly do it all."

"Last week I could not walk because I kicked an ice bag and injured my knee.
I tried to apply my own herbs from the market but they damaged my skin. Dr Xiao gave me herbs to heal my skin first. Then she diagnosed a torn ligament of some kind and sent me for an MRI.  Two days later I returned for treatment.
The report showed ACL sprain. Once my skin recovered I saw Dr Yan for treatment.  I could not walk or put pressure on my knee. After 2 office visits, I can walk, I can stand straight and I have full range of motion! I appreciate what GWCM did for me."

"I am a prime example of complete sketisium when it comes to a natural remedy. Having acute remotory arthritis I needed help I was greeted by doctor Xiao at an event and felt compelled to give her a shot of helping me with my pain. The staff and the Dr. are extremely compassionate they made me very comfortable through the procedure.   I have now become a true believer when it comes to acupuncture.  I am now a regular at the clinic and will continue my journey for a healthier productive life. Thank you Dr Xiao. Did i mention the massages are the best ever."

"Have you ever wondered where the East meets the West? I tore my meniscus long jumping in high school. After three evaluations from different doctors, I had part of my meniscus removed. 10 years later my knee started hurting again. The doctors told me to remove the rest of my meniscus. It didn't really make sense, but I am not a doctor! I decided to visit my first Chinese acupuncturist in Chinatown, San Francisco. They connected electrodes to the needles and within 20 minutes my IT band "let go". No more knee pain. Every five years or so I need the treatment again, but only from highly experienced, Chinese medical practitioners.  At Great Wall Chinese medicine, together, Dr. Xiao and Yan have 60 years of experience in Chinese medicine, and are trained in Western practice. The Great Wall is my AZ place where the East meets the West. Dr. Xiao performs near miracle, medical massage, coupled with traditional Chinese acupuncture.  Go here first if you have pain. It may not save your life, but could save you from going under the knife!"

"The staff here is awesome and the results I have seen are amazing. I have bulging discs and back spasms but since I started coming here my pain is down, I'm sleeping better, and I'm much more relaxed. This place is great for Veterans!"

"Very quiet and relaxing environment, nice staff and caring doctors. I had sever back pain for the past two weeks, went in for treatment 3 times now and the pain is gone. The doctors were really patient during consultation, TuiNa was really helpful when it comes to relaxing my muscles and the entire body as well. They would not only provide treatment for the problem you went in with, but also they would help with other little issues you might have. Like for me, I caught flu during the sessions, Dr.Xiao was nice enough to make me feel better. Overall, I enjoyed my experiences, but the most important thing is that they fixed my back so I don't have to deal with back pain again."

"I want to thank you for the great progress that I have made since I started acupuncture treatments. When I started three weeks ago it was a real struggle and extremely painful for me to hobble into your office from my car. My cane carried most of the weight of my right leg. Yesterday I walked from my car into your office without my cane and by walking slowly the pain, I had been having, was basically gone. I still have a ways to go to be back to normal but I am getting better with each treatment. This has given my mind so much relief, that I no longer consider myself a cripple. Thanks again. You have my permission to show this letter to any of your patients. There were times when I first started my treatments that I wasn't sure they were doing any good. It was your positive assurance that kept me to continue. Then I begin to see improvement. I can't wait to tell you that I am well again"

"I started seeing Dr. Xiao in June 2012, about a year after having thyroid cancer. After the surgery and RAI treatment for the thyroid cancer through Western doctors, I had been having extreme nausea, vomiting, fatigue, muscle cramps, headaches, dizziness, muscle weakness. I began seeing Dr. Xiao once or twice a week for acupuncture and some reflexology. Within four or five treatments I felt significant improvement. After about 2 months of treatment, I felt very close to normal for the first time in more than a year! I am very thankful to Dr. Xiao and her staff for the care."

I came in this morning for neck pain. The front desk helped me book the soonest appointment with short responses time. Dr. Xiao is the magician of Acupuncture. I have neck pain, but she put acupuncture needles on my back lower leg, and them really worked!!!!! She really knows what she is doing. Come check it out if you have any type of pain or other issues. You will be surprised how Chinese medicine can do to your body the good way!

This is an awesome place. I woke up in the morning with great pain in my neck and shoulder. I thought it will go away quickly but it didn't. I have been to the Scottsdale location before and I am well aware of their services and reputation. When I felt I do need to see a doctor, and I made an urgent call around noon time and can't believe that they accept me for the same day appointment. The Chandler location is nice and spacious, and easy to find following the navigation. I checked in and waited for just 10 mins and the staff are so friendly. Dr. Xiao is very friendly, and she listened carefully to understand my problem. She is also very professional, and she has clear treatment plan for my issue. Lisa provided me very good massage to help relax my back muscles and gave me a lot of good tips for improving my muscles condition in the future. I felt much better after the treatment, and I do highly recommend this place for the professional, and good services!

Scoliosis

"I received a gift certificate to get a 30 minute massage. I've had massages before and I have to say this is the best one I've ever had. BEST MASSAGE EVER. I have scoliosis and I work out on a regular basis. I do rock climbing and TRX/Pilates. So my back muscles tend to get over worked. Beau was recommended to me and I loved how he was able to focus on my problem areas without me having to tell him where those areas were. He evaluated me and promptly began treatment. His technique is amazing, I loved that he wasn't afraid to use deep tissue pressure and adjust me accordingly."

Sciatica 

"Very clean, well run facility. People are very friendly and helpful. Was experiencing severe sciatica with pain in my left leg. After two epidurals and physical therapy, I experienced no relief. After two visits with Dr. Xiao, the pain was gone and I got off all the  western medicines I was on, just to get through the day. I am continuing treatment and feel better after each treatment. I would highly recommend Dr. Xiao."

 -Jim R. 1/5/2018

"I am very optimistic about finding different ways of healing without having to take western medicine. For the most part western medicines have become dangerous and can be addicting. I have a bad case of sciatica and have been working with Bo, the massages Dr who has been a tremendous help. I know his hands are healing hands and in time I know my symptoms will disappear. I am in the early stages of my massage plan to heal n I have to admit I feel a 75% difference each time I leave his table. I couldn't be more happy with the results and the way I feel each time I leave the office - I highly recommend this place if you want to be healed holistically. The staff is wonderful, respectful and always ready to recommend a new way to heal."
