To Whom It May Concern
I am a Western trained physician in practice for sixty-four years, and in Chinese medicine as a practitioner, student, teacher and writer for forty-five years.
My personal experience with Dr. Xiong as a patient includes her literally having saved my life, relieved debilitation pain and arthritis in my hands and improved my gastro-intestinal and urinary function with Tui Na [Chinese massage] and acupuncture.
I am witness to her having successfully treated musculo-skeletal conditions and tension with acupuncture and Chinese massage, as well as severe diabetes with herbs. She is an empathetic healer with a gentle, comforting presence.
Dr. Xiong, apart from her degree from a licensed acupuncture college has apprenticed herself with Chinese masters from a variety of lineages and never ceases to seek instruction in a medicine to which there is no end.
It gives me great pleasure to recommend her as an acupuncturist and Chinese medical physician for a wide variety of medical conditions.
