I’ve been an avid runner for 15years and have been fortunate enough to have very few injuries.
However, I began having a terrible pain in my hip flexor, as a result of frequent running in the late spring of 2011. After seeing a sports medicine physician in June of 2011, I was prescribed 3months of intense physical therapy with the intent to repair my hip. After 2months of physical therapy, I was not healed and still felt that I needed to pursue an alternative approach in order to continue running without pain.
I had no experience having acupuncture prior to seeing Dr. Haio Kong at her acupuncture and herbs office. I have been a patient of hers now for 2 months, coming to her office once a week. I am no longer doing any physical therapy and I am able to run 4 to 5 times a week without pain due to the successful results I am experiencing thanks to Dr. Kong’s treatment. I am close to feeling pain-free and I am confident that with time and continued acupuncture treatments, my hip will be rehabilitated. I highly recommend treatment with Dr. Haio Kong, as she listens to her patients and sets realistic goals.

Dr. Kong is so amazing! I had her in my Yelp bookmarks for a while since I suffer from inflammation in my knee. I finally decided to call her one day when I woke up with severe knee pain. She had an available appointment and I went. I didn’t feel anything the first time but I have been going consistently and have been loving the treatments. You can tell that she really cares to help... Read more »

I injured my lower back a few years ago causing severe muscle spasms and was referred to acupuncture by my primary care doctor. After some research, I chose Dr. Kong, and she ended up being really kind and knowledgeable, like the other reviews mentioned. After a few months of treatment, my back felt infinitely better, and I go back for periodic tune-ups. I highly recommend Dr. Kong to anyone who suffers from back pain. Her... Read more »

Dr. Kong is amazing. I lost my voice and after 1 session with her I saw major improvement. She is very intentional with her practice and very knowledgeable as well. Thank you Dr. Kong for saving my voice!

I haven’t lived in CA since 2012; but Dr. Kong was the first person I had to come find during my visit back to deal with my. I remember going to her with all my aches and pains that Western medicine wasn’t addressing, and she consistently solved every one of them! I was so excited to find her in the same location; and, true to form, she was able to get me back to 100%... Read more »

Dr. Kong is amazing. I am an RN for over 25 years. I have been treated for many sports injuries via the traditional Western medicine. However, I decided to try acupuncture for my recent injury (tennis elbow), which was incredibly painful and left me very debilitated. I could not straighten my arm or fully bend it. After 4 treatments in 2 weeks I am pain free and have 95% function back. Thank you Dr. Kong.... Read more »
