Dr. Wu helped me go back to work
(I am very thankful for Dr. Wu helping me recover from breast cancer treatment and support me going back to work. She is kind, caring and truly passionate about her profession and really takes the time to get to know his patients holistically. I highly recommended her to all my friends.)
Thank you so much for all your patience and caring, Dr. Wu!
Much thanks to Dr. Wu’s highly skillful treatment
It happened one Sunday, late August 2015.
I came home from church and was backing the car up the driveway. But before putting the car into the garage I wanted to take out some things from the trunk so I stepped out of the car and went to the trunk. As soon as I put the items on the back porch step, I was suddenly pushed forward by the car and was pinned between the car and the steps. I tried to twist my body around but found that I had at least a gash of about 6 inches long on my leg and it was bleeding profusely.
I was rushed to the hospital by ambulance and had surgery the next day. Both of my legs were heavily bandaged and my left leg was in a knee immobilizer to prevent it from bending.
Everything happened so fast that it took a while for me to think straight. Just lying on the bed was uncomfortable and boring and I was restless. But I kept praying, “Dear God, am I going to be able to walk again? Are you going to help me so?” After six weeks in the hospital and in rehabilitation, I was released and went home to be under home health care. Physical therapy started right away twice a week. Through their help my boot and bandages were eventually removed but I still had very visible scars. Both of my feet were terribly swollen, puffy like infants’ feet.
During this stage, my son-in-law heard about Dr. Wu, an acupuncturist and chiropractor. His friend who is also Dr. Wu’s friend and patient recommended her highly and so he suggested that I visit Dr. Wu.
I was scared at first about getting acupuncture so it took a few days to make up my mind. But later I realized this was a waste of time. When I first visited the health center and met Dr. Wu, I felt very relaxed because of her warm smile.
Later I heard she was a Christian and that she prays for her patients every morning before coming to the office. When I heard that I thought I found the secret to why people visit her with warm feelings and hope. Of course, I am one of them too.
My visits to the health center started with a twice a week plan, then to once a week and then to once in two weeks.
Yes, my feet are getting stronger and there is no more swelling. The scar is nearly gone. And I don’t need a cane anymore. Most of all, I could walk again.
I cannot jump or run like an athlete, but I don’t need to because my prayers are answered. Praise the Lord! Much thanks to Dr. Wu’s highly skillful treatment, heartfelt encouragement with many personal suggestions, and lots of prayer.
I wonder if Dr. Wu will tell me one day, “Flora, you’re well now so you don’t need to come anymore.” Do you know what my answer would be? It will probably be like this. “Thank you very much Dr. Wu for your sincere help. I don’t know how to pay you back. But truly I don’t want to miss the time I have visiting you.”
By the way, I am 92 years young
Thank you again,
I became a believer in acupuncture
I have suffered from migraine headaches for approximately 30 years. Six years ago I decided to get treatment from Dr. Manli Wu because the four medications that the neurologist prescribed were not helping. Also my personal physician recommended that I try acupuncture as Western medicine was not healing me.
When I first consulted Dr. Wu, my migraines were occurring on a daily basis. And I had severe scalp pain sensitive to touch that never went away despite using various pain medications. Although I continued working, I had stopped exercising, as it made the pain worse.
On my first treatment by Dr. Wu, I was curious about whether or not the needles were painful. They were not, as they are as thin as one strand of hair.
After a half hour, Dr. Wu removed the needles. I sat up from the examination table and felt my scalp. I was shocked to discover I had no scalp pain. I became a believer in acupuncture from that moment forward.
Although the scalp pain returned, my continued treatment for it and my migraines actually helped to eliminate both conditions within three months. And I no longer had to take medication.
However after I had a head injury in May 2016, I suffer from occasional migraines and scalp pain. Dr. Wu’s acupuncture is my only treatment since medications do not work.
I believe that Dr. Wu has the gift of healing due to her extensive training and natural talent. She is also a compassionate and caring doctor. I am so blessed that I found her, as my physical health has only gotten better since her treatments.
I couldn’t see my life without my Dr. Wu!
I have known Dr. Manli Wu for about 13 years. I first met Dr. Wu when she was a clinician in SCUHS-University Health Center. She treated me for anxiety, panic attacks and digestive system. She was amazing! For my wedding, she put beads on my ears for my anxiety. (see photo)
When Dr. Wu informed of her departure from the health center to start she own private practice, I told her would follow her wherever she went ….and so I did.
Since then, Dr. Wu has treated me for other issues, such as sprained ankle, sore back, shoulders and even hormones. Every time I see her… I feel great!
I couldn’t see my life without my Dr. Wu! She is always there for me when I need her. She can diagnose me by the look on my face. She knows exactly how to make me feel better. And now that I am married with 2 children, I bring them to Dr. Wu too.
Dr. Wu first treated my daughter when my daughter was 8 months old, after I found out that she had eczema, asthma, and allergies. After my son was born, she treated him for his bad coughs. Now, I bring them to Dr. Wu to maintain annual acupoint treatments and herbs, to build their immune system for the flu season, allergies, etc.. (see photo) She also helps my husband with his sore shoulders and lungs.
My kids love Dr. Wu and only know her as, “Our Dr. Wu”. She is not only a doctor, she has become our friend. I am so honored to be one of her long lasting patients and proud of her 10 year anniversary of her practice. She is not only kind, caring, smart and amazing! She will help you feel better!

My irregular heartbeat is normal now
Have you ever experienced your heart beating so fast or pumping so slow that you can’t even breathe? I have. It’s scary. Have you ever woken up in the morning and found all ten of your finger tips swollen like red balls? I have. It’s not fun. In the spring of 2010, I experienced all these episodess with no clue what was happening to me or what I should do to fix it. So I visited the emergency room in the hospital and got strapped to a heart monitor for hours but still got sent home without any answers. Even after seeking help from heart specialists and going through numerous tests, all they were able to tell me was that my heart will sometimes skip a beat. And because there isn’t any sort of medicine that can cure a fast and slow running heart, they said they could give me a pacemaker. When I heard that, I started to feel helpless. Throughout this all, I even tried Eastern herbs but it wasn’t helping quickly enough since taking herbs usually takes more time. Thankfully, my sister Shelley Ying told me about Dr. Manli Wu at the Walnut Health Center. I won’t lie, at first I was scared. Needles? Acupuncture? I’ve never tried it before! Plus, it was so far from my home and since it’s hard to drive on the freeway with my heart condition, I didn’t make the phone call Dr. Wu yet. But things got worse and there were some nights when I couldn’t sleep laying down so I would have to sit up and wait until I exhausted myself and felt so tired that I would fall asleep sitting up. I know I needed help
So on 5/26/2010, I went to see Dr. Wu for the first time and her diagnosis was the same as my heart specialist: my heart will skip beats. But instead of suggesting a pacemaker, she calmly told me that I will need ten treatments of acupuncture from her to get better. But amazingly, after two treatments, my irregular heartbeat was already getting better. And after finishing the ten treatments, I felt completely normal!
After those sessions, Dr. Wu told me that I didn’t have to come regularly any more but I insisted on doing another ten treatments. Dr. Wu has previously suggested that losing weight and getting in better overall health would help my heart condition, so I wanted these next ten treatments to focus on losing weight. And after going through those treatments and eating a healthy diet suggested by Dr. Wu, I lost about 18 pounds and felt even better!
With Dr. Wu’s help and care, I honestly have become a brand new person. I’m able to live a better quality of life and am able to travel all over the world knowing that no matter how far I go, I can always come back to Dr. Wu and be taken care of with any issues that might develop.
This is my story. I am so thankful that I have met Dr. Wu, and I am so thankful that because of her treatment, I can now live a better life for many many more years to come ?

Amazing herb from Dr. Wu!
I used to be afraid of acupuncture and don’t like the taste of herbs. Last year, I suffered coughing for more than half a year. I tried everything I could, took every medicine given by my family doctor but no luck 🙁 I was still coughing everyday.
I then came to see Dr. Wu with low expectation, just a try I thought. But you know what? Just 2 acupuncture treatments and 5 days herb, I barely cough anymore. Thank you so much, Dr. Wu! That was really amazing!
Wonderful Dr. Wu
I can’t imagine going through menopause without Dr. Wu and Acupuncture! I had been suffering from frequent hot flashes, sweating, insomnia and headaches last year when I turned age of 49. Dr. Wu gave me acupuncture treatments and herbal medicines with only a few diet changes. Wow! No more hot flashes and sweating! I am so grateful to Dr. Wu!
Dr. Wu & Dr. Yi
My doctors at Walnut Natural Health Center have helped me to manage pain and regain mobility from injury the natural way without medication. I have recommended acupuncture to others. The staff at this office is very helpful.
Their Herbal Medicine Helped Me Very Much
One day coming back from school, I started breaking out with rashes all over my body. At night I would have to put an ice pack over my skin because it burned so much. I had to take Claritin pills that only lasted up to 24 hours. Every night it would come back again. Luckily, Dr. Wu made me some special Chinese herb. After the first time taking the herb, I did not have to take the pills anymore. After 2 days, all my rashes were gone. Thanks to Dr. Wu’s herb, I can sleep peacefully again.
