imgI cannot thank you enough

June 26, 2008

Dear YuPing,
I can’t thank you enough for what you have done for Taylor and me. I have had acupuncture in the past and it felt wonderful, but I have never achieved the kind of results that I did after the very first treatment with you. Since developing severe asthma over 20 years ago, I have never been able to go even one day without using my rescue inhaler. After my visit with you, I was able to go more than a week without even thinking about it. The morning I came to see you I was having a terrible time with my asthma. This is a very bad time of year for me, and typically it would have only become worse throughout the summer, and inevitably ending up in the ER. Well since my treatment, I have felt wonderful.

I would also like to praise you for all of the time you took with us during our initial consultation. It was incredible. You taught us so much, and I am now so careful about the products I buy. After explaining to you about my financial issues, you were able to inform me how to eat healthy AND economically. I am now amazed when I read product labels. I’m so excited about all of my new knowledge that I have told family, friends, coworkers….. And you have made it so easy to understand and follow. So many doctors rush their explanations, and use words that “regular people” don’t really understand. They are so quick to prescribe medication, (which is what started my daughter’s intestinal problems in the first place). They don’t really care about resolving the overall problem, just as long they are able to get quick results alleviating the symptoms. (I guess if they solved the real problem, we wouldn’t have to keep going back to them and they wouldn’t make as much money).

But the time we spent in your office was REAL HEALING from beginning to end. The music and the gentle incense (which amazingly didn’t even set off my asthma) made me feel like I was at a spa. Then your kind words and caring tone really made me feel at ease, and I actually opened up to you more than I ever would have to my regular physician. You weren’t judgmental at all and I thank you so much for that. It was exciting to learn how and where you received your training, and loved how incorporated the “older and simpler” Chinese Medicine techniques with the much more sophisticated ones. You achieved 100% of my trust and I knew I was going to have a wonderful experience, but never in my wildest dreams did I expect to achieve the lasting results that I have experienced.

I was amazed that Taylor even agreed to the needles over the magnets. When she tells people, she describes the feeling as like she was floating. Her diarrhea hasn’t come back since the appointment and her pneumonia was totally gone a few days later. (I had been able to put my ear to her back and hear the crackling in her lung, but within 2 days of seeing you, she sounded clear). We have been rationing the herbs (again financial issues), but I have noticed a big difference in my health and Taylor’s energy level.

By the way, the inhaler I have been using for over 20 years is being taken of the market because of the CFC’s, but the replacement doesn’t work as well for me, and I had been panicked about that. But that is no longer a concern of mine. Thank you for that peace of mind.

If you ever need a reference for future clientele, please have them call me. They can either call 512-9x9-xxxx or they can email me at You are very gifted at what you do and I feel very lucky to have connected with you.

Very Sincerely Yours,

Jill Roberts


YuPing Wu is a treasure. She is a medicine woman of the highest regard and a credit to her profession. Her knowledge of the body and its healing systems is deep. I've had the blessing of several treatments with her and she's correcting long standing energy imbalances from a spinal cord injury that is over 25 years old.

I met YuPing ("Apple" to her friends) when she rode with my cycling group and offered insights as to how my restrictive lung disease, which gives me trouble climbing hills, might be positively affected by acupuncture to help relieve the effects of scar tissue in the area around my surgery site behind my lungs. I responded in all honestly with the story of a nightmare experience with a Chinese medicine doctor ten years early who sent me screaming from his office due to his insensitivity to neurological injuries that make me highly sensitive on one side of my body.

Apple assured me that she would take my unique needs into consideration. Because I was wiling to try anything for my lungs, and I soon developed energy surges in my body similar to a Kundalini rising experience, I was confident that it would be worth the gamble to try it.

From the first treatment, this gentle healer has listened to everything I've said, talked me through painful body memories as we treated the area right around my spinal injury, and shown sensitivity to my comfort and needs. Every step of the way she's shown insight, provided a gentle touch when needed to calm my overactive nervous system, and demonstrated her unique knowledge of what I was going through. The validation she has provided is unlike any I've received elsewhere.

I will be bringing three of my children to see Apple very soon. The way her treatments have affected my feeling more at ease, sleeping better, and overcoming the awful energy surges of three weeks ago has convinced me that I should have tried acupuncture years ago. The thing is...if I'd known Apple, I would have.

The best choice of alternative medicine for you and your family

Testimonial By:

“At 5 years old, my son Alexander had a lot of asthma attacks every month and was in a pretty bad condition. After a few visits (chinese herbs and acupressure), he started feeling better and his asthma attacks completely stopped. Now at age 7, he hasn't had a single asthma attack for 2 years, and his asthma is under control! Recently, we have started working on his allergies, and we hope that with YuPing's help, the effects will be just as good as with the asthma. Alexander is a healthier child now than he has ever been before, and YuPing is also helping our whole family using herbs and acupuncture”.

“ I strongly recommend Applecare acupuncture for everyone, no matter the magnitude of their health problem”.

I am a 60+ male and have been on traditional medication to control high blood pressure for about 10 years. While the drugs do control the hypertension, the problem is that they also have side effects that effect my quality of life, in particular they sap my energy. I have done all the recommended things, I have a good diet, my weight is fine, I exercise regularly and have tried various supplements. but any attempts I have made to reduce my medication have failed. That is until I decided to try acupuncture and visit AppleCare Acupunture. YuPing is a compassionate, thoughtful and gifted healer and teacher. In less than 2 months I have achieved my original goal of eliminating most of my daily medication while maintaining acceptable blood pressure. My energy levels are noticeably improved. I find this truly amazing! Going to a holistic healer has the added benefit that I am getting improvement in several health issues that were not my original purpose for my visit, but since most health issues are connected, you cannot effectively heal one while ignoring the others. YuPing Wu's holistic approach has clearly been beneficial to me. If you have any health concerns that more traditional treatments are not controlling to your satisfaction, I would definitely recommend a consultation with YuPing Wu

I have never had so much one on one, involved attention from any health practitioner. She spent a lot of time just really getting to know me and my situation before she even began treatment proving what an individually tailored and holistic approach she has. Acupuncture was new to me, so it was a bit intimidating when she told me that I'd be laying there for awhile with all those needles, but I didn't feel nervous for long because she checked on me often, and encouraged relaxation. I have never in my life felt that type of deep relaxation and healing. It was, and continues to be, an enlightening, spiritual and healing experience that I encourage everyone to try. My philosophy on medicine/healing has changed forever--Rumeysa V. 28 years old

I have had problems with my neck in the past that has caused me great pain. I contacted YuPing in the middle of 2011 as I woke up one morning with a horrible neck ache and could not turn my neck at all. She was nice enough to see me that day. That is where my recovery began. I have been seeing her ever since and I must say the acupuncture is a big contributor, but it isn't the only thing. She opened me up to herbs, exercises, and changing some things with my diet. I must say, this has changed my overall body. Not only am I pain free in my neck and able to move it with ease, but my overall health has vastly improved. She is very helpful with sitting down and listening to you and giving you advice of how to treat each situation. I highly recommend her for any health issues you may have. You won't be disappointed!!

I had not ever been to an acupuncture clinic before for whatever reasons I'd only heard them being for somewhat strange conditions, not your regular, everyday "aches and pains" everybody has from their regular long stressful work days. After a single appointment with Dr. Wu, however, I was sold on Chinese medicine. Back-aches, headaches, and muscle tension are all now a thing of the past after only a month. It makes me wonder why I put up with them for years and years as well as the many prescription medications and doctor visits?? I have since recommended this clinic to many of my friends and family (even my mom with fibromyalgia who is now entirely pain-free), and will continue to do so for all those I care about. I also wouldnt have thought, but the yoga offered as a supplement to the herbs and acupuncture has done wonders for my concentration and confidence. The in-house yoga instructor, Jeremiah, is an incredibly gifted individual that has the ability to help all of those who are under his care.

I'm so glad I met YuPing Wu!!! I had an old injury in my hamstring insertion point that I came to her to work on. After the first session, I immediately felt better and I'm only feeling better and better as I continue my appointments. I haven't felt any pain in my hamstring at all since, and I can feel how it is slowly opening and getting more capable of practicing yoga. She asked me questions about my sleeping, digestion, how I've been feeling emotinally lately, and gave me acupuncture even for those things. The natural herbs and medicine (thank God, I hate taking plastic medication) she's been giving me has helped me with my sleep, overall stress levels and everything. My entire quality of life has just gone up a couple of octaves. I would readily recommend her to anyone. Thank you so much YuPing!‎
