Mei Lu is a wonder worker. I have seen her many times and always been impressed with the results. Most recently, she was able to treat an enormous hematoma and orange- sized dried blood mass deep in my abdomen when the doctors at USC could do nothing. In 3 treatments, she had shrunk it by 75%. When I was reeling and shaking with chemotherapy side effects, she helped tremendously with the symptoms. I have gone in to see her in agonizing pain and left 2 hours later substantially better. If you are considering acupuncture, she is the one you want to see.

I had good experience with Mei Acupuncture in December 2011. Mei was both delightful and skilful for what she??s doing. It??s miracle to use little silver needles to stop the pain. I also appreciate that Mei takes insurance and she submits to insurance on my behalf. Thank you Mei!

I have had acupuncture off and on most of my life. For a long time I stopped. Then 3 years ago I developed really severe case of 'Tennis elbow'. I found Mei on a referral. After a series of treatments over a couple of months my elbow was restored to better shape than I had expierienced in years! It was so bad before the treatments, I couldn't hold a cup of coffee at arms length.

Recently (over the past year) I have been doing a lot of lifting
of heavy weighted objects and without maintaining a maintainence regime with Mei I was back in the same boat.
I'm a hammerhead, what can I tell you. Over the past two weeks Mei has stopped the deterioration and rapid improvement has begun. She has saved me from Mr. Needle and the dreaded cortisone shots!!!!!

Mei has also started treating my sinus condition. Any sharp change in humidity (whether from dry to damp or vice versa)
my sinuses shut down completly. I can'y breath through my nose at all. At night, this means I wake up 10 times or more because I'm forced to breath through my mouth. With the few treaments I've had for this the sinuses are not shutting down and I'm sleeping super well!!!!!!!!!! Thanks Mei, your the Best!!!!!!!!!

I had Mei's service in October 2009 for my shoulder pain. I felt a great relief of the pain after about an hour of the service. I deeply appreciate Mei's curing power of her acupuncture. Thank you, Mei!

Mei Lu disclosed other patients info to me while I was in her office, she belittled my health concerns, told me I was a spoiled white girl, could not read or speak or comprehend English above a second grade level, and has a dirty, messy, darkly lit place of business. She also tried to co-erce me into buying five treatments before even giving me one, and asked inappropriate questions about money and my life. Additionally, she talked a lot about Chinese vs. America. I did not feel welcome or safe in her office and was glad to leave. I do not recommend her to anyone. Maybe if you are Chinese and can speak Chinese she is the right doctor for you. I have been to other acupuncturists and never experienced anything negative like this.

I went to see Mei because I was having chronic upper respiratory infections. Every month after my menstrual cycle, I would develop a chest cold/sinus infection. This went on for almost a year and was obviously very inconvenient. I saw several doctors who kept giving me cough syrup and antibiotics that were not helpful. When I went to see Mei, she listened to my symptoms and put me on a treatment of herbal tea to drink several times a day. In about a week, my health was restored. The colds went away and I have returned to my normal, healthy, active self. I have since moved to Santa Barbara, but I would certainly make the drive back to Pasadena for her treatment if I needed to.

After being pushed around my MD's office in a wheelchair, I felt useless and terrified. My entire back felt like it was made of wood, and I couldn't use my left leg to walk. My MD diagnosed me with muscle spasms, gave me meds, and told me I'd be out for three weeks.

My friend convinced me to try acupuncture and recommended Mei. After 4 treatments in 6 days, I have very little pain and am able to walk normally again. I don't understand why Western medicine disregards acupuncture and massage as viable treatments. Mei's English is a little hard to understand at times, but her caring manner is enough to overcome that minor barrier. After my back recovers, we're going to work on my circulation issues (my extremities are often very cold). I'm sure my well-spoken MD has a pill for that too, but I'd rather have Mei work with me and help me get to my best health.

I first went to see Mei (of Mei Acupuncture) in the spring of 2006. I was recovering from two surgeries. In March, I had a horizontal laparotomy for the removal of an ovarian cyst (7cm in size) due to endometriosis. Two weeks later, I had another laparotomy (this one was vertical) to remove infected blood from a staph infection that had grown inside my original surgical opening. Normally an active person, I was forced to recover for several weeks in bed. I was anxious, depressed, and terrified of becoming sick again.
I literally went to see Mei because I had nowhere else to turn. I was terrified of doctors, hospitals and Western medicine as a whole. A friend suggested I try acupuncture. At first I was apprehensive (looking back now I cannot conceive why!) but upon my husband??s urging I made an appointment. At my first session, Mei looked at my scars and shook her head, sadly. As an acupuncturist she had been treating women with endometriosis for years and was shocked by my doctor??s decision to surgically remove the cyst. I had no feeling on my entire abdomen. My nerve endings had been severed by the surgical lacerations. She immediately began to try to give me feeling again. The scar tissue was so tough the first few times I went to see her that she could barely insert the needles.
Over the next few sessions, Mei used acupuncture to help calm my anxiety, dissolve my insomnia and fight my depression. I began biking to her office instead of driving and I felt a renewed sense of energy. To compliment the acupuncture, Mei also gave me herbs to drink to help clear out scar tissue and boost my digestive system again.
At my tenth session with Mei I mentioned to her that my husband and I were trying to conceive a child. Since I had just had an ovarian cyst removed and was vulnerable to having endometriosis again (a condition that breeds infertility in women) I was anxious to start a family before my chances diminished. Mei told me she could help. That month we began plotting a fertility chart for me. She asked that I take my BBT (basal body temperature) everyday, count the days in my cycle and look for a spike in temperature to mark the approximant day of ovulation. After I had gathered all the information she gave me three bottles of herbs to take. One set was for when I was menstruating, the next for the days leading up to ovulation, and the last set for after I had ovulated. The first month I took the herbs I became pregnant with my son, Patik who is now a year old.
I have returned to visit Mei for back pain, neck pain and nerve pain. But it is not Mei??s ability to soothe the normal aches and pains of my daily life that make her truly special to me It is that she helped me solve my infertility problems without drugs, or surgery or any other invasive kind of medical care. Instead, she used my body??s cycle and system of functioning to help determine when I would be ready to conceive. In fact, as I write this testimony I am pregnant with my second child, due in November. Again, the first month I took the herbs she prescribed I became pregnant.
Mei is an incredible healer and doctor because she offers not one system of cure but three. She is an acupuncturist, a masseuse and an herbalist. She has used a combination of these methods to help me, all the while comforting me with her gentle, soothing bedside manner. She is humble, compassionate and focused. I hope other women who struggle with fertility as I have will consider confiding in her. I cannot convey the gratitude and respect I feel for her every time I hold my child.

We were looking for some herbs we got from another center. The person here, has very limited to almost no English capability at all. Apparently, there is noone there that speaks English. And apparantly, even though it says Herb Center, they carry no herbs. From what I understand they order over the internet, which you can just do.

Mei has been treating me for a few years now since I had my very first acupuncture treatment from her. And wow, when she massages my feet, I am in HEAVEN!! She is so gentle with her acupuncture yet quite powerful in her massages. I love her!!! Her pain patches really work too! One more thing--Mei is always accommodating to my busy schedule and I really appreciate that!

I have seen 4 acupuncturists, and many alternative medicine practitioners. Mei was great- felt what I needed. Not routine. I recommend her very strongly.

When my neck freezes up, this is the only thing that helps. It kind of feels like you've been transported to China with the shelves of jars lining the walls filled with herbs. Mei does a fantasic job. I have a MAJOR adversion to needles (I faint getting them aor seeing them given!) and this doesn't bother me a bit. She does a variety of things to get you feeling better - theraputic massage, herbal remedies.
