Low Back and Hip Pain: "I couldn't step up on a sidewalk without pain in my right hip. i went to the Orthopedics and I was told I had sciatic and should wear a back belt and take Aleve twice a day. Wei Wei was recommended by some friends and she said you have one leg longer than the other. She did some physical therapy and acupuncture. After 2 sessions the sharp pain was gone. She is very good!"

Shoulder Pain: "Dr. Guan is such a caring person and has helped relieve my severe shoulder pain. I had never tried acupuncture, but before undergoing surgery, thought I would give it a chance. It is not painful and she explains what she is doing and how it is helping. Highly recommend!"

Neck and Upper Back Pain: I’ve had a wonderful experience as a new patient of Dr. Guan’s. During my initial two sessions in her beautiful new facility, Dr. Guan has spent adequate time assessing and discussing my symptoms and developing a holistic treatment plan that combines her comprehensive expertise in the areas of physical therapy, acupuncture and herbal medicine. It’s impressive to get my first acupuncture treatments (which were not painful at all and very relaxing) from a 5th generation Chinese medicine expert – what a heritage! Her practice is equipped with state of the art equipment that is used in her treatment approach, which has proven to be unique and highly effect. For my neck and upper back problems, the neck stretching machine is outstanding! Her treatments have made a huge difference! I highly recommend Dr. Guan!”

Knee pain and gastrointestinal reflux: “I recently had a total knee replacement and suffered with gastrointestinal reflux for many years. Under her care with both needles and herbs, I am happy to report that my reflux has disappeared, and I no longer take the herbs. Also, the needles were instrumental in relieving pains associated with arthritis and post knee surgery. Dr Guan is very amiable but professional. I felt very comfortable in her presence and looked forward to our sessions, anticipating relief from my pains. I will continue to seek her help and have recommended her to several friends who now share my high opinion of her. “

Constipation: “Hi Weiwei, I am Tia’s very happy mother! I appreciate what you have done for me! Over thirty years of constipation and after trying countless remedies from high fiber diet, magnesium, prunes, beets, Vit C powder, many practitioners with many herbs, fibers, probiotics, prebiotics , cleanses, colonics, chiropractors, all of no avail. The only thing left to try was the prescribed medication from my doctor. The possible side effects were not worth the risk so I was feeling discouraged. I was hesitant to try one more thing, but my daughter spoke so highly of you. With a cabinet full of expensive jars and bottles of products, I stepped out and ordered the herbs that you formulated just for me. This was my last ditch effort before having to live on prescription medication. It worked!!!! I don’t know how to describe how wonderful it is to feel like a normal human being! My digestion has never been so good. I can eat things that I wouldn’t dare touch like cheese, bread, and I even tried a little meat and I cannot believe the transit time! 24 hours! Most days I am going 1-3 times in the morning for a complete evacuation. Wow! It’s been 21/2 weeks and I never felt better! When I finish these herbs, please let me know what to order for maintenance. I’ve actually learned to enjoy having my ‘special tea’! “

Shoulder Pain: "I highly recommend Dr. Guan as a knowledgeable, skilled and caring doctor of Physical Therapy and Acupuncture. Her one on one, hands on approach to patient care has greatly aided in the process of healing my shoulder. Our community is fortunate to have her practicing here."

Hip and Knee Pain: “I love the comprehensive approach that Dr. Guan takes to treating muscle and joint issues. I’ve never met someone who has her unique background with training and degrees in both acupuncture and physical therapy. Because of this, she is able to integrate acupuncture, as well as light and heat therapy, with more traditional physical therapy treatment approaches. Based on my experience during the past six weeks, this comprehensive treatment approach is truly effective and has helped me regain mobility in my knees and hips. As an added benefit, Dr. Guan has a great personality, which makes the whole experience fun as well.”
I returned to Weiwei with a new ailment today. She had sucessfully treated my pain in the past and she quickly diagnosed my painful shoulder as an impingment from poor posture. I was given a massage, acupuncture with electrical stimulation, heat therapy and neck traction. In addition, she taught me a couple of exercises to do with resistance bands to help correct my rounded shoulders. I left her office feeling fabulous, relieved that my pain wasnt a rotator cuff tear and confident that the regimen and future visits will cure my problem.
Outstanding professional and and highly sympathetic Doctor, that I can fully recommend to anyone seeking non-Western medical treatment.
I came to Guan’s physical therapy a few weeks ago and could barely walk. I suffer from neck injuries that cause a severe dizziness. I am back on my feet and functioning normal!!! Thank you so much you’ve given me my life back!!
My experience at GPT and Acupuncture has gone above and beyond my expectations. After my first appointment I had so much improvement addressing several issues from vertigo to shoulder and neck pain. Dr. Guan is one of the most personable doctors I have ever met. The time and detail she provides to each of her patients shows how much she cares for you and will continue to address your needs during your treatment.
It is with great pleasure I write this review for Dr. Guan, who is treating my leg DVT. Modern medicine or conventional medicine has no solutions for permanently addressing a DVT. Their solutions are take blood thinners and wear a compression stocking. I drive 2 hours ONE WAY 3 times per week to see this very kind, very gentle and very compassionate medical professional, Dr. Weiwei Guan. Dr. Guan made me no promises. Dr. Guan stated she would try to help with the DVT. I am making excellent progress under her medical care and expertise. My previous Acupuncturist of 20 years was Dr. Robert Chin, who passed in 2016. I thought it impossible to find a Doctor of Acupuncture as knowledgeable and with the expertise of Dr. Chin. Dr. Guan’s family ancestors started this particular school of Acupuncture. Her father began teaching her Acupuncture as a child and always held Dr. Guan to a higher standard than any other student. If you are considering acupuncture, there is no one better. I highly recommend Dr. Guan for consultation and treatment to determine if she can help you.
I am so glad I made the decision to become a new patient of Dr. Guan’s. I absolutely feel confident in her expertise as I have experienced first hand significant relief from my chronic pain! My sessions with Dr. Guan have proven to be especially helpful for me and she has an exceptional bedside manner! The facility is top notch and I couldn’t recommend her more! Thank you Dr. Guan:)
I am so thankful that I found Weiwei Guan. I have seen tremendous improvement with the issues I've been having. She is the best at what she does. The environment is comfortable, professional, and very clean. She also takes the time to explain things to you. I would highly recommend her and Guan Physical Therapy and Acupuncture.
Dr Guan is a true healer in every sense. I had tried other Acupuncturists for my fibromyalgia, IBS and anxiety, but they never worked. Until Dr Guan. She has not only helped my pain dramatically, but she does it with a kind, joyful, and generous spirit. I can always expect a warm hug, a lot of laughter, and a tasty cup of her personal tea she selflessly shares with me at the end of my visit. She is not only my Dr, she is my friend and treats me with so much love and determination. I am seeing major progress in my condition since going to her. As I get better And better after each visit, she has given me hope that my illness won’t continue to take over my life. Thank Dr Guan.
Weiwei is very knowledgeable and very caring. Invested in treating the whole patient. Spends an extraordinary amount of time with you during the treatment time. She is a lovely person and excellent clinician. Totally fixed my shouder pain and restored complete of motion. I absolutely recommend her!!
Dr Weiwei Guan is the most caring doctor I have ever had. Her understanding of Physical Therapy and Acupuncture is beyond the scope of other places I’ve been. Dr Guan cares for her patients and is always seeking to insure a good outcome for them in her practice. Dr. Guan has helped me immensely in my own physical needs and I will miss her warm, caring persona when I move north this winter. I wish I could take her with me!
I have been going to Dr. Guan for my back and sciatic nerve. I was also told that I have neuropathy in my right foot. I have tried everything that I know to try. I had heard good things about acupuncture and decided to give it a try. I read Dr. Guan’s reviews and decided that I would give her a chance. I am so glad that I did, her office is very clean and she has up-to-date equipment. She is the nicest person that I’ve met in a long time and in tune to your pain and works very hard to make you feel better. I feel very lucky to have found her and that she is in our community. If you’ve tried everything you know to try why not give her a chance I don’t think she will disappoint. I am certainly glad that I did.
Dr Guan is excellent in her work both in acupuncture and physical Therapy. I have shown steady improvement with my shoulder injury since working with her. Her office is clean, neat and tranquil and she is the nicest person ever. This has been an amazing experience. I highly recommend Dr Guan.
I have tried physical therapy in two different health systems with limited success. I have found true assistance with Guan Physical Therapy and Acupuncture. Dr. Guan made incremental adjustments to my exercises so that I was truly making progress. Through additional acupuncture treatments I found even further flexibility improvements and less pain. Dr. Guan has been a supportive and encouraging partner in my physical rehabilitation. The office is lovely, clean and calm.
I had neck tension and stress. It is amazing that I feel better after serval acupunctures by Dr. Guan. Excellent service and highly recommend!
Dr.Guan is extremely personable, knowledgeable, compassionate, patient and attentive. She nailed my problem immediately and gave me the relief In my back I was looking for. The clinic is also clean, comfortable, and it is safe to be treated with no risk of COVID-19.
I am so glad I found this clinic. I have had so much pain and lack of mobility that chiropractic care was no longer helping. I have had 3 treatments full acupuncture and neck traction and I can already tell the difference. My pain level and numbness in limbs have improved and my neck feels better and has more mobility. I highly recommend the clinic as the care you receive is outstanding. Dr. Guan is very caring and is excellent at what she does.
A few weeks ago, I asked Dr Guan to treat my right thumb. I had had a bone removed in 2007 for osteoarthritis. The surgery was initially successful but in recent years had required steroid shots. When they also stopped helping I turned to Dr Guan for acupuncture and skilled manipulation. This weekend I could use hand cutters to trim bushes for the first time in years! Thanks to Dr Guan, 90 percent of my pain is gone, and we are not yet finished!
Dr Guan is both knowledgeable and compassionate! After spending a month trying massage and chiropractic care for sciatic nerve pain, I made an appointment with Dr Guan. She was the only one to realize my pain was coming from a back problem and treat me for that. After 5 acupuncture appointments, I am pain free 90% of the time. She works on things from the PT side of things also in order to heal the original problem.
Dr. Guan gets to the root of whatever health issue a patient is facing. For me, it was a serious case of lock jaw. I was dealing with pain and an inability to open my mouth properly to eat. Dr. Guan not only eased the discomfort through acupuncture treatments but did so quickly. I am amazed by her abilities and very grateful I found her!
