At Alpha Acupuncture & Herbs, Inc., our philosophy is to treat patients the way we like to be treated. We believe the integration of Western and Eastern medicine is an effective approach to enhancing the benefits of modalities used in both medicines. Therefore, we devote our practice in building interdisciplinary awareness and relationships with other doctors for the delivery of the best possible care.

Acupuncture is a time-tested, safe, effective, natural, and drug-free way to eliminate pain. Unlike other methods for handling pain, there are no side effects.

Our acupuncturist, John Wong, L.Ac., is passionate about striving to provide the highest quality of holistic patient care. He deeply enjoys spreading an understanding of well being, while taking part in each patient’s journey in attaining true health and happiness.

Here are some experiences from our patients:

"I had shoulder pain for about 2 months and had tried other acupuncturists, a chiropractor, and a sports specialist. I was unable to dance, or perform day to day activities such as dressing myself normally. After acupuncture treatments by John Wong, L.Ac., I have no more pain and my arm flexibility is back to 95%. I feel happy with my current conditions and am very grateful to find a doctor like John. I would definitely recommend John to everyone who needs help."

-K. Mann

"Amazing! Truly a blessing and it works! I suffered from constant pain day and night for over two years. Not only did I have pain in several parts of the body, including my shoulder blades and lower back, but I also suffered from depression and anxiety. The pain was so severe that I was unable to perform daily activities for about four months due to carpel tunnel and tendonitis (bilateral). With Dr. Wong’s help, my pain is now completely gone and I have also improved, requiring less and less needles during regular treatments. In addition, my anxiety and depression have improved as well. I am very grateful for Dr. Wong’s knowledge and compassion. I trust that I am in experienced hands, not with someone who is not familiar with acupuncture. Thank you Dr. Wong."

-M. Nuno

“I suffered from a relatively painful Sciatic nerve problem for about 6 weeks and had taken prescription medication. I was unable to stand, walk, or sometimes lie down without being in pain; however, I am now relatively pain free after John Wong, L.Ac.’s wonderful treatment. I would and already have recommended him, who provides a very professional service, to anyone in need of acupuncture treatment."

-N. Sheets

“I was referred to Dr. Wong by my husband to treat my neck injury. At that time I was having tremendous pain. After the very first treatment, I noticed my pain and symptoms decreased dramatically. After a week, my pain had almost completely resolved. During a family visit, I injured my ankle and foot. My ankle and foot were swollen and bruised and I had to be in a wheelchair. I went to see Dr. Wong as soon as I was back in town. He treated me and the next day the swelling went down tremendously. After a few more treatments, I was back on my feet. I will always be grateful to Dr. Wong for his help and kindness in our lives.”
-N. Thao

"Before I came to see Dr. Wong, I suffered from a constant stiff neck due to degenerative disks for a long time. This problem limited my abilities to work on the computer for a long period of time. I have previously taken pain medications to control the pain and a surgery was also recommended from my previous doctor for permanent pain relief; however, I was able to turn my head back and forth, up and down without pain after Dr. Wong treated me. I think Dr. Wong is wonderful and I've already been recommending this acupuncture procedure to friends."

-B. Abraham

“My elderly mother suffered from many ailments including lupus, irritable bowel syndrome and depression during the past two decades. She had sought help from many Western and Eastern doctors during this time. To her good fortune, she found Dr. Wong two and a half years ago and finally found true relief. She and I both can attest that Dr. Wong has not only extended her life, but improved the quality of her life. Her lupus is largely in remission. Her depression has lessened. Her irritable bowel syndrome – gone! My family and I are grateful that my mother is doing so well. On behalf of my mother and my family, thank you, Dr. Wong.”
