“The acupuncture treatments I’ve received from Ruben have literally given me my life back! I forgot what it was like to not be in pain until I started receiving acupuncture treatments with Ruben. Now, I cannot tell people enough how amazing he is!
For almost 3 years now, I’ve been suffering from Postherpetic Neuralgia, which is nerve damage caused by shingles, all over the left side of my face and head. It’s extremely painful & the only thing the doctors can do is prescribe different kinds of pain medications or perform “nerve block” surgical procedures. I’ve had around 10 of these Nerve Block procedures, with no success of them relieving pain. I have been on up to 6 different pain medications at one time. Most of which make me tired or mean or like a zombie, etc.
I’m a mother and a wife and I’m the Executive leader at my full-time job, so it’s been near impossible for me to not be in pain, and function in all those areas of my life. Ruben was a referral from my brother & it was one of the biggest blessings ever! Since I’ve had shingles & now postherpetic neuralgia, Ruben’s acupuncture is the ONLY thing that has provided any kind of pain relief! After 2 treatments, I woke up without pain for the first time in 3 years!
I can enjoy the little things again! I remember what my fun, outgoing and positive personality was like & I can be that person again. My husband has his wife back, my boys have their mom back. I’ll never take another day with them for granted. There’s nothing I can do at this point to show my thanks and gratitude to Ruben for giving me my life back! To say he’s highly recommended is an understatement.” -D.G.
“One word: AMAZING. Ruben got rid of my pain completely! I had plantar fasciitis on my foot, and I was in terrible pain where I had difficulty walking. It was so bad that I went to the doctor and got a cortisone shot. The relief only lasted for about a week, and the pain came back. I went to see Ruben, and soon as he put the needles in, I felt a BIG difference. I couldn’t believe it, I was walking normally after the session. Highly recommended." -L.F.
"Ruben's calm demeanor and excellent beside manner made a huge difference in the way I felt during the sessions. I was having anxiety episodes every other day due to some personal issues. At the time I was on prescription alprazolam which was helping. But I just knew that I needed help for my sleep problems too. Ruben was very understanding and supportive throughout, and he made sure I was comfortable. I started to feel much better after a few treatments, likely due to the fact that I was sleeping better as well. I can't thank him enough and would 100% recommend him to anyone." - D.R.
"I’ve been going to chiropractors for muscle spasms for many years, and I was amazed at how much quicker I get relief with Acupuncture. Dr Ruben can work magic! I was barely able to turn my head when I walked in, and after just 30 minutes I had most of my mobility back. In my recent session, I explained to him that I’ve been feeling like I’m bringing other people’s negativity home with me, and he preformed the Outer Dragons technique shown here. It was so incredibly relaxing, and I slept better that night than I have in weeks!” - S.L.
“For several years, I have dealt with reoccurring skin and digestive issues that the specialist doctors have been unable to diagnose. I wanted to address the root of these issues, not just mask the symptoms with corticosteroids and acid-blockers. Ruben Hong had relieved my mother’s lower back pain with acupuncture, so I was willing to give the Eastern medicine approach a try. At the initial visit, Ruben took time to understand my needs and asked many questions to develop a holistic picture of my health. He noticed a pattern of inflammation, which he would rebalance in my body. Ruben was empathetic about my frustrations with my health as well as fear of needles (minor initial sting and leaves no marks), guiding me through deep breathing during the treatment, or even staying and swapping stories if his scheduled allowed because he noticed talking relaxed me! I appreciated his professional, caring demeanor and great sense of humor. Ruben is well-trained in acupuncture and very knowledgeable about health in general, continuing to learn to provide the best care for his patients. He emphasizes treatments that are comfortable for his patients, and in subsequent visits, I tried electrical current stimulation at key points. So far, I have had six treatments, have not had a reoccurrence of either skin or digestive issues, and feel like I have more energy these days. I highly recommend Ruben!” -L.K.
“My first treatment with Ruben Hong was for chronic insomnia. I’ve had this condition for over 20 years, the only thing that would help were sleeping aids. I started to notice that the sleeping aids were becoming less and less effective over time, and I would be miserable the next day. My sister-in-law recommended that I try acupuncture. The first treatment I had with him, I slept like a baby that night. The treatments have helped me sleep better and feel more rested. Thank you!”. -L.R.
“I started treatment with Ruben Hong prior to a knee replacement. I was experiencing hip pain from chronic bursitis, knee pain, and foot pain. Ruben assessed my condition judiciously and proceeded on a course which has contributed to allaying my pain in some situations and completely eliminating it in others. After my knee replacement, I saw Ruben weekly. He played a vital and valuable part in my recovery. He carefully treated me in this challenging situation, always mindful of my extreme pain and limited mobility. I feel certain that Ruben’s treatments contributed greatly to my quick recovery. The extreme swelling of my knee was reduced in a pronounced way and my pain lessened with each treatment. My orthopedic surgeon was surprised and impressed by the results of the acupuncture. I placed my trust in Ruben. He took on the challenge and exceeded my expectations.” -C.V.
