I couldn’t believe that TCM could deal with my symptoms so quickly. By the end of the day my ear infection and headache were completely gone.

"I started seeing Dr. Ruth Lee for acupuncture about 3 months ago for my back and a pulled muscle in my arm that wouldn’t get any better despite constant physio visits. I have done acupuncture before with good result but I was amazed at how quickly my injuries got better with Dr. Ruth. Two nights ago I got an ear infection which left me with a terrible headache as well as fever. I had an appointment already scheduled with Dr. Ruth for my back so I went to see her. She decided to deal with the ear infection and headache which I did not realize was even a possibility with acupuncture. I was certain I would have to visit a GP and need antibiotics. She decided to give me acupuncture, cupping, as well as wet cupping which is like bloodletting. I went along with it as I have grown to trust her completely. She is incredibly knowledgeable and has helped me through a lot already. She told me that I would sleep like a baby, which is something I hadn’t done for over a week since first noticing the ear and headache. I slept, just like she said, like a baby and unbelievably I woke up with hardly any symptoms. I couldn’t believe that TCM could deal with my symptoms so quickly. By the end of the day my ear infection and headache were completely gone. I have grown to love acupuncture as the results I have received have been wonderful. Dr. Ruth is an amazing TCM doctor and I highly recommend her."

She put some needles in those areas and I hardly feel the soreness now. Thank you again!

"Both my daughter with eczema and I see Ruth. Ruth does facial acupuncture for me. I've had 4 or 5 sessions already and my skin began to get firmer after the 2nd session (even my facialist told me so). When I went for my last session yesterday, I told her that I got some muscle soreness in some joint areas due to dragging my work suitcase up and down Central for the last month. She put some needles in those areas and I hardly feel the soreness now. Thank you again!"

After one month, my period pain was lessened and my CA125 level actually dropped to 7 and that’s back to the normal range!

"Dr. Lee is a very experienced doctor and she’s a great person. I have Endometriosis, and when I had my period I got really bad cramps. It would hurt so much that I would start sweating. Before I saw Dr. Lee my CA125 level raised to 189. Western doctors told me that if I have a baby the pain might go away, but that was not my plan. So I went to see Dr. Lee and she treated me with Chinese medicine and acupuncture. After one month, my period pain was lessened and my CA125 level actually dropped to 7 and that’s back to the normal range! I’m so grateful that I met Dr. Lee and I have recommended her to my friends. But I am sad that she’s left Shanghai and went back to Hong Kong. I will definitely miss her."

She was very profressional & caring. She took the time needed to listen to my needs and story and found the best ways to address them

"I strongly recommend Dr Ruth Lee. Being 40 week pregnant, I went for a consultation to help get things / labor going thanks to accunpunture treatment. She was very profressional & caring. She took the time needed to listen to my needs and story and found the best ways to address them. The outcome of the consultation was great since the day after (less than 24 hours after the treatment), my labor kicked off naturally and I welcomed my baby 2 hours after!"

She helped me to reduce my chronic pains and migraines

"After a few stressful years at work, I started to have a serious blood pressure, neck and lower back problem. That’s was the time when I decided to try a Chinese traditional medicine. I first met Dr. Ruth during my treatment in Shanghai, she was my acupuncture doctor, she also recommended a traditional cupping and herbs to treat my health problems. I want to thank Dr Ruth for being such a great specialist, she helped me to reduce my chronic pains and migraines. Thank you Dr Ruth for everything you did to help."

After 2 months’ treatment, I had no more discomforts

"I’ve always trusted Chinese medicine more than Western medicine. I started seeing Dr. Lee every week because the stress from work put a huge toll on my body. I was unable to sleep, had irregular periods, and was experiencing back and shoulder pain, stomachache and headaches. Dr. Lee treated me with acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping or herbal medicine according to my body needs. After 2 months’ treatment, I had no more discomforts. My period was back to normal and my stomach was feeling a lot better. Dr. lee also taught me how to combine nutritional diet with the treatments, the results were great!"

I can see my boy’s body conditions improved and he is now much healthier than before

"My son (7 years old) was a feeble child. He would easily contract a flu and get a fever when season changes. Moreover, he had allergies and was afflicted by eczema for years. I took him to visit Dr. Lee and I was impressed. She is a great doctor with high standard of professional ethics. She strongly opposed to the abusive use of medications on children. That’s why she would always employ natural therapy such as tuina massage, cupping, umbilical therapy as much as possible. And the results were great. I can see my boy’s body conditions improved and he is now much healthier than before."
Cindy

Elsa really likes Dr. Lee, especially when Dr. Lee sings children songs to her when she’s getting Tuina

"The first time my daughter (6 years old), Elsa, saw Dr. Lee she was a little shy. However, Dr Lee’s smile and kindness eventually won my daughter over and she started becoming more comfortable and relaxed when she was receiving Tuina massage treatments. Elsa really likes Dr. Lee, especially when Dr. Lee sings children songs to her when she’s getting Tuina, and she actually think it’s very comfortable and relaxing! When Elsa gets a cold, or a fever we would always use Tuina techniques that Dr. Lee taught us. We all love Dr. Lee!"

I didn’t even notice the needles go in, only the flow of energy

"My first ever cupping and acupuncture was with Ruth Lee- Thank you for the explanation of why cupping automatically puts the body into healing state. Helping the limphatic system and the metabolism to flow. Ruth used the Acupunture to boast the flow of qui, this I felt straight away. Did any of it hurt, my anticipation was it was going to hurt more than it did. In fact once the cups were on my back, I felt relaxed. I didn’t even notice the needles go in, only the flow of energy. The cupping removed excess moisture from my body, which eased my chest cold. I will definitely repeat this therapy again. Thank you Ruth."
