What can Traditional Chinese Medicine do for you?

Acupuncture is the insertion of fine, solid, stainless steel needles into the body at specific points that have been proven effective in the treatment of specific diseases. Herbal Therapy is it can supplement the diet, strengthen the constitution, and treat the causes of disease.

Moxibustion is the burning of herbs over an affected area and is very effective for stopping pain.

Why is acupuncture so effective?

Traditional Chinese Medicine has been successfully used on billions of people for over 4000 years. It has withstood the test of time.

Unlike modern medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine takes a holistic approach. We diagnose and treat the root of the disease, as well as its symptoms, to bring the body back to its original health.

Acupuncture is also highly safe. The clean needle technique is used with only disposable, sterile needles. The toxic side effects encountered with modern medicine are completely avoided with Traditional Chinese Medicine.

The National Institutes of Health of the U.S. Government in November 1997 announced that acupuncture is effective in treating a number of health problems.

The World Health Organization of the United Nations acknowledges that acupuncture is suitable for treating many conditions including disorders of the following:

  • Eyes, ears, nose and throat
  • Respiratory system
  • Gastro-intestinal track
  • Neurological and musculoskeletal systems
  • Mental and emotional upsets
  • Genito-urinary and reproductive systems

Over the last 30 years, millions of Americans have used Chinese medicine for curing illness. Many insurance policies now cover acupuncture. Ask your agent.

"Fantastic – my right leg is constantly hurting after strenuous activity. My doctor told me it was a chronic pain in the nerve and there is no cure but to rest and take it easy on the leg. Well let’s just say I cannot throw away all my loving activities just because of this leg. But I figured out the combination of regular Tai Chi in the morning and going to Dr. Lei’s office."

"She’s a very nice, and warm hearted person. I highly recommend her to everyone whether you are familiar with this eastern practice or not. It works wonder for me."

"Best Acupuncture for Fertility! – Dr. Lei is incredible-I went to her after two years for trying to conceive. We started to see a specialist and were almost at the end of our rope. I saw her only three times specifically for infertility and boom we became pregnant. We have had the best pregnancy and I believe it is because Dr. Lei prepared my body for conception by correcting any blockages. She is so professional and kind. I would highly recommend her to anyone for any aliment. Her office is not intimidating and you really feel the personal touch. Thank you Dr. Lei for all you have done for us.” -LM. Raleigh

"Acupuncture at it's finest – Dr. Le is amazing! I never thought acupuncture would help as much as it does. I think that Dr. Lei has that special knowledge and combined with such an incredible healing tool, she can do wonders. I highly recommend Dr. Lei Zheng for any ailment!"

"Best acupuncturist – I have gone to acupuncturists before but have not received relief. However, when we moved to Raleigh this past January, someone told me about Dr. Lei Zheng and of the tremendous progress patients have made under her care. I went to her, still not convinced and, from the first two visits received total relief from pain from osteoarthritis and from hurting myself from a fall the day before we moved here in January. I also suffer from aches from fibromyalgia, which has disappeared and from extreme fatigue, which is also gone. I cannot recommend Dr. Zheng enough. She has also helped in two visits my husband who has Parkinson's and who has had extreme discomfort from stiffness in his neck. That problem with his neck is gone. Since I have gone to her, I have met several other people who have gone to her for other problems and who all rave about her. She is truly exceptional in her work and I cannot commend her highly enough."
