Some of you asked me to share my experience with Dr Amy Sun. It is an honor.
Keep in mind that each person recovers in his / her own path. What applied to me may not apply to you.
I was introduced to Dr Amy Sun by Neil Yu, my friend whose recovery owed a tremendous deal to Dr Sun's treatment.

Dr Sun's Everglory Acupuncture Clinic in Rosemead
My first visit to Dr Sun's clinic was in Nov 2012, 7 weeks after the stroke. My wife Hong pushed me in on a wheelchair. We did not know what to expect. In the hospital, doctors warned my wife that I might never stand up or talk normal again. On my first visit, Dr Sun's said, let's give it a try.
The first thing Dr Sun tried to control was my phlegm. After stroke, I had difficulty controlling my saliva, which turned into constant overflow of Phlegm. I was either coughing or drooling.
I remember the first night home, my mom pulled a plastic sheet under my bed, and left me a brand new box of Kleenex. The next morning, she found the plastic sheet was littered with crumpled Kleenex. The box was empty- I used up all 500 sheets in one night.
A few sessions later, we were surprised to find that my phlegm is largely gone. I hardly need any Kleenex during night ever since. That was the first sign of hope.
My left leg and arm were very ataxic at the beginning. In about 6 weeks. the ataxia began to fade significantly. I could walk by myself, albeit slowly. When I was discharged home, the hospital set up a permanent rental on wheelchair for me. We returned the wheelchair in 3 months.
Dr Sun made me go 3-4 times a week. "The initial few months are critical" she insisted. I am very glad I followed her advice.
To any stroke survivor, depression is a major problem. We fell off the cliff by surprise. It is really scary. The memory of the past will make us mourn.
When I showed up in Dr Sun's clinic, looking depressed, she would chat with me to relax my mind.
18 months into the treatment, despite amazing progress, I still had quite a bit of residual. I got worried. "Have faith in yourself." she said "Your recovery will continue. Things will be fine." Today, I can not tell you how thankful I am to her words. The progress we achieve since that point has been no less remarkable.
Like said, each person's case is different. But if you wanted to give her a try, call Dr Sun at 626-280-9268. Her clinic address is 9143 Valley, Rosemead, CA 91770. She is semi-retired spending a lot more time with her very cute grandson.
