As a college professor and a martial artist, I'm on my feet a lot and I push myself quite a bit physically. When Western medicine wasn't working to alleviate my recurring ankle tendonitis, I was lucky to find Eastern Light Acupuncture. Dr. Ma was able to treat me over the course of a couple of months and get me to a point where I could continue with my training without any pain medication, and not be concerned about being on my feet for a three-hour lecture. This was my first time receiving acupuncture and she explained everything that the treatment involved in a clear and concise manner. She also gave me suggestions on what to do on my own to facilitate healing. Dr. Ma also had a very personable manner which helped put me at ease. I would recommend her to anyone who would be able to benefit from acupuncture.

Liver Dysfunction, Sinisitus, Joint Pain
I began treatment under Eastern Light Acupuncture in late March of 2016. My issues and health concerns ranged from liver dysfunction, emotional / anger management, seasonal allergies, sinusitis, and joint pain / discomfort. I am happy to report that under Dr. Li’s care all of these conditions have been successfully improved with no side effect, thus improving my overall quality of life. Dr. Li’s approach of empathic listening, individualized treatment plans, and extensive knowledge of Acupuncture and Chinese herbal remedies is incredible. Her caring demeanor and pleasant disposition make Doctor visits a comforting and welcoming experience. I highly recommend Dr. Li’s practice to anyone seeking an alternative solution to their health concerns.
Headache, Pain Management
I highly recommend Eastern Light Acupuncture. I started going to Dr Li over 10 years ago when I had terrible migraine headaches two and three times a week and she broke the cycle and I hardly get them anymore. Over the years, she has helped relieve me of so many different ailments besides the migraines -- so numerous to mention but I will try -- back, ankle, and knee pain, shoulder and neck pain, digestion issues, ear aches and TMJ issues, viruses, colds, sinus congestion and low immunity, relief from dry eye syndrome and right now Dr. Li has treated me two times for a very painful condition in which I sprained and inflamed my chest muscles and although initially it was extremely painful, I am feeling relief after two treatments within 3 days. Dr. Li is able to help with so many different areas of the body. She will do her best to try to fit you into her schedule when an emergency arises. She is the one I go to when I'm not sure what to do when something is feeling not right with my body and has helped me countless times -- without the side effects of medicines and drugs. There are no bad side effects from her treatments and her treatments are not painful -- they take away your pain and help you to relax and feel centered after the treatment.
I have been a believer in, and beneficiary of, Traditional Chinese Medicine for some time. My introduction was in 1975 when I was treated in China with acupuncture for sciatica. Since then I have been treated with acupuncture, tea, soups and herbs by practitioners of TCM: Sometimes as a total solution; others as complementary to western practice. I am so fortunate to have found you. Your knowledge, experience, compassion and concern always makes me feel that I am in the right place when I visit your office; and especially when I leave. You are a great complement to my health regimen that includes Qigong and Taiji. Thank you.
I have received a relatively long term of acupuncture treatment at Eastern Light Acupuncture. The treatment covers the periods of pre-IVF, IVF and early stage of pregnancy. Based on my own research and my own experience, acupuncture treatment does help prepare my body ready for the IVF and also ready for the pregnancy. I feel extremely lucky to have Dr. Hui Li with me to go through this long and stressful procedure. She is very experienced and knowledgeable. Her acupuncture skill is fantastic. To tell you the truth, I started the treatment with fear and ended up with enjoying every 30 min. treatment. It is so relaxing and soothing. And the best thing is I delivered a healthy baby girl of 9 lbs. 8 oz..
I can't say enough good things about Dr. Li and about Acupuncture. I went to Dr. Li with knee pain and with arthritis in my shoulder. My shoulder pain was so severe that I couldn't sleep at night, and I had difficulty raising my arm while reaching to open a door. An American medical doctor told me that I am arthritic, that I just have to learn to live with the aches and pains of arthritis, that it's part of growing older. But when I walked out of Dr. Li's office after the very first acupuncture treatment, the pain in my knee and shoulder was gone, and my full range of motion was restored. I resumed playing rugby, which, at age 56, is no small task. I could never have accomplished this without Dr. Li's expertise. She is skilled, compassionate, and knowledgeable. She is a consummate professional. She sincerely cares about each and every patient. She takes the time to not only treat each patient, but also to get to know them. I cannot recommend Dr. Li highly enough. She has restored my health, my outlook, and and my quality of life, without prescriptions or physical therapy. I highly recommend acupuncture for anyone suffering from joint pain or from limited range of motion, and I know that the absolute best person to treat you and the best place to go, is to make an appointment to see Dr. Li in White Plains.

My friend refered me to Dr. Li due to miscarriage, infertility issues and uterine fibroids. I have been seeing her every week for almost 10 months. She is knowledgeable and professional. No doubt she has a busy schedule; however, she spends time to answer your question and assists with any concern. The acupuncture and herbal pills are working for me that I don't even mind to driving an hour to see her. I was pregnant again after seeing her and have a beautiful baby now. I am very pleased with Dr. Li's service and would recommend.
Chronic Hives, IBS
I have been suffering with chronic hives since I was 16, as I got older the problem worsened I am now 63. I have very serious medication allergies especially to antibiotics. I have an extremely volatile system that will often react to things that I never had a problem with, the reactions are always hives and skin rashes that are very itchy and burn. I was having a very serious flare up of hives, and nothing was helping to get them under control. The latest flare up started in 2009, I was on a combination of very high doses of antihistamines and medications; but nothing was working. The very high doses of clemastin,chlorpheniramine and benadryl were causing a serious swallowing problems and I was unable to keep food down could only eat and drink very small amounts of food and liquid. I used the antihistamines to treat the hives and asthma. When the coughing fits were really bad I would add cough medicine. The other issue that was going on was that I was getting one respiratory infection after another. Sometimes it was very difficult to figure out what was allergy, viral or a respiratory infection. I was sick every other week. After about two months the hives finally started to calm down, within the next 4-5 months gradually the reflux, gastritis, IBS and asthma also had major improvements. Most important with the hives calming down that I was able to seriously cut down on the high doses of antihistamines and medications, with that change the swallowing started to improve and I was able to keep food and liquids down. I have been doing acupuncture every week or every other week for over 2 years and it has made an incredible difference in the quality of my life.

Through her application of a highly effective combination of acupuncture and herbs, Dr. Li has brought under control (and in some cases completely alleviated) long-standing problems that would not be resolved through medication and/or surgery. I no longer need my inhalers for my chronic asthma, and my sciatica pain is well-managed. Under Dr. Li’s immediate attention and preventative care, any new medical issues are nipped in the bud before they have a chance to develop into big problems. I am now enjoying good health!
