Dr. Liu has been such a gift to me and my wife. We have western medicine doctors in our family but after searching for answers that they couldn't help us find, Dr. Liu's treatment has been amazing. He is very intelligent, thoughtful and truly wants to help his patience.
I get chronic migraines - bad ones that last for days!! Today I was on day 3 of a migraine that I'd rate an 8 out of 10 on the pain scale. I did a google search for "acupuncture migraines Austin" and came across the positive reviews on Yelp for Honeysuckle Acupuncture and knew I had to give them a try immediately. I left a message before they opened and got a call back an hour and a half later and an appointment scheduled for 11:30 that morning.
I highly recommend Honeysuckle Acupuncture. Dr. Liu is an expert in his field. He uses moxa, cupping and needles to bring results. He has a gentle needling technique and he is very concerned about comfort and relief. His herb formulas work!!! I first met Dr. Liu when he was on faculty at AOMA and followed him to his centrally located private practice. I have not seen his wife but I have heard she is excellent in working with women's issues. Go see Dr. Liu or Dr. Zeng. Take your herbs and feel better....I did.
I used to suffer from weekly, if not bi-weekly, debilitating migraines. After exhausting other methods of care, I made an appointment with Dr. Liu. Both Liu and his wife, Zheng Zeng, have been treating me for four months now. They are both genuinely kind, concerned, and compassionate. For once, someone tried to get to the root of the cause of migraines instead of offering a quick fix. I have been migraine free for 3 1/2 months now and feel like I have my life back for the first time in years!

Dr. Liu is a miracle-worker! I suffered from chronic, debilitating migraines several 2-3 times per week. I had tried everything else and was on a lot of medication thanks to my neurologist. Nothing was doing much to help. Then I went to Dr. Liu, almost five years ago, and he was the only one to make a difference. I go for periodic maintenance treatments with Dr. Liu and my migraines are now down to one every month or two and are very mild (that may sound like a lot to some people, but it means I can hold a job -a lifesaver for me!). He is incredibly kind and caring. He took the time to find out my whole medical situation and always checks my current status when I come for a treatment. He is also genuinely concerned when I have a bad migraine and wants to do everything he can to help me, and when you're in pain and suffering, it's very nice to know someone cares! His wife, Zheng Zeng, runs the clinic with him and is just as kind and caring. She did a treatment for me once while Dr. Liu was in China and I was very impressed. I have nothing bad to say about them or their clinic and always recommend them to any friends or family who might need acupuncture. In fact, I am getting ready to move away from Austin and one of my first thoughts when I decided to move was "Oh no, I'll have to leave Dr. Liu!" I highly recommend Honeysuckle Acupuncture - you won't be disappointed.

Dear Dr. Zheng Zeng (Jen Jen),
Thank you so much for helping me this year! You practically saved my life. Truly. When I first met you in Janurary and I was 6 months pregnant, you helped me get centered and calm - and you did it so quickly! Honestly, I don't know when I have ever felt so horrible in my life - your acupuncture treatment combined with your bedside manner came to the rescue. THANK YOU!!
Post-partum, we worked on my breastmilk production - that was also incredibly helpful (not to mention the chicken broth you suggested!).
All this is to say that you are well-gifted in your profession - thank you for sharing your expertise, kindness, and gift with me and my baby.

Zheng Zeng was recommended to me by a co-worker when I was considering Acupuncture for pregnancy and reproductive health issues. I am so thankful for this introduction as I am proud to say that I gave birth to my first son in May of this year.
Zheng Zeng is a confident, heartwarming provider who truly listens to my concerns. She always provides positive feedback and supports my decisions. I am blessed that she entered my life and am now a firm believer in Acupuncture.
"I used to suffer from weekly, if not bi-weekly, debilitating migraines. After exhausting other methods of care, I made an appointment with Dr. Liu. Both Liu and his wife, Zheng Zeng, have been treating me since June of 2010. They are both genuinely kind, concerned, and compassionate. For once, someone tried to get to the root of the cause of migraines instead of offering a quick fix. Zheng Zeng and Dr. Liu's approach to my care validated my concerns for the first time in years. I remained migraine free for several months. If I do get a migraine now, it is not severe and can usually be avoided by adjusting my herbs or a treatment. I have my life back now thanks to Zheng Zeng and Dr. Liu. In addition to the medical care they have provided, Zheng Zeng and Liu are both incredibly personable, which makes the whole experience even more valuable. I completely owe my new found health and balance to Honeysuckle Acupuncture."

Dr. Liu has been treating me for injuries I received in a car accident. His care has made a big difference in my pain level and healing process. The herbs he has prescribed have really helped. Originally the herbs were to help with the severe bruising, bone mending and pain and now we are working on strengthing my body and helping me have energy and good memory. I know I have healed quicker because of acupuncture and herbs. Also important to me is the peaceful atmosphere of the office and treatment rooms. I really appreciate Dr Liu and his thoughtful, gentle care.

I met Dr. Liu (Le-o) a couple of years ago when a bulging disk resulted in muscle spasms and crippling leg pain. A co-worker suggested I give acupuncture a try - after all, what did I have to lose?

Dr. Zheng Zeng (Jen Jen), Dr. Wu and Dr. Liu are all wonderful. Very expertised and friendly. Thank you for making me feel much better!

After years of battling the pain from a shoulder injury I had given up on ever recovering. My pain specialist diagnosed me with complex regional pain syndrome number 2 and gave me no hope of improvement. She had me on 6 different pain medications and physical therapy was filled with horrific pain and gave me no improvement.
In just a few visits with Doctor Liu I was feeling amazing relief. I am gaining my range of motion back and I continue to improve. I was able to discontinue my pain medicine and have not had to return to them. It has only been a few months and now I am leading an active life and returning to work. Life without the pain meds is a dream come true, thanks to the caring work of Doctor Liu.
Everytime I go to see Zheng Zeng she knows what to do to fix me. I could come in for stress, shoulder pain, stomach problems or menstrual problems, and I walk out of her office feeling like a million bucks!! She is my own personal super hero which is why one day, after an incredible treatment from her, I drew this picture. Thank you Zheng Zeng for always bringing my body back into balance and making me feel so much better!! :)
I have battled endometriosis for over 15 years. My treatment was continuous birth control. When I was ready to get pregnant with my second child I had difficulties ovulating. One treatment with Zheng Zeng and I ovulated 7 days later and was pregnant within 4 months. I see Zheng Zeng for relief from my bipolar disorder as well. I am so glad I met Zheng Zeng and would recommend her to anyone with ANY ailment.
I want to again thank you for all the help you have given me with my post-menopausal symptoms. You truly have been a lifesaver to me with acupuncture and your herbal remedies. I was having such extreme symptoms that my quality of life was truly compromised, but your expert knowledge and skill has helped me feel healthy and energetic again. I am very grateful to you and I appreciate your kindness and sense of humor throughout my ordeal.
We are trying to find a good acupuncturist in Florida. There are lot acupuncturists here, but finding great ones like you and Dr Yuxing Liu is hard.
You helped us so much with our allergies, the pain in my hands, my husband’s knees, arms and other problems.
Both of you treat patients with care, with professionalism and you are great acupuncturists. After each treatment with you, we were so relaxed and feeling healthy.
Overall, we feel healthier now after all these treatments. Because of our good experience with you and Dr. Yuxing Liu, we always encourage our friends to get an acupuncturist's help. Then again, one must go to an acupuncturist who is experienced and knows how to treat patients like you.
I sought out Zheng Zeng for acupuncture because of her focus on women's health. I was trying to get pregnant and had been diagnosed with PCOS. I was also suffering from migraine headaches. Under Zheng Zeng's care I learned a lot more about my body and saw positive changes in how I felt overall. I became pregnant six weeks into my treatment and my daughter is now five months old.
I have taken acupuncture and TCM treatment for about sixteen years from a number of different practitioners. Because of serious health issues in my mid 30's, that were not treatable through ordinary western medicine, TCM was the most viable (and successful alternative). For several years I studied TCM as an amateur with the hope of one day joining the profession. Additionally, my wife is a MS degree educated physical therapist with advanced training in nursing, various types of alternative health including cranial-sacral therapy and other methods. We are pretty well informed and well qualified to offer an opinion about anyone in the field, and are quite careful about whom we work with.
In short, Dr. Zheng Zeng is the finest Oriental Medical Doctor I have ever encountered, and my wife shares that opinion. She is brilliant, technically superior, a master at herbal medicine and more over a sweet, kind woman. She is the finest type of doctor that one could imagine. I have had significant improvements in my health since working with her (even better than other very good OMD's I 've worked with in the past). Dr. Zeng is in my experience superior to anyone in her field. I would recommend her without any hesitation to anyone.
You are truly a miracle worker; I was at a point with my attempts at becoming pregnant that I felt so hopeless until I came to you at AOMA; you helped my body become more healthy and helped me in becoming more positive and less stressed;
My son is continuing to become a strong healthy little boy… he is 28 months old soon and is already at the high end of growth charts; my husband and I love him so much… I always recommend acupuncture to anyone that is having issues with fertility; I have attached a couple of pictures of him when he was an infant and also a more recent picture; thank you so much!
All my life I had irregular and infrequent menstrual cycles. Sometimes a year would pass before I would have a period again. I had been on an oral contraceptive pill to regulate my menses, but I felt like it did more harm than good with only masking my symptoms instead of truly fixing it at the root. But now, after working with Dr. Zheng Zeng, I am thrilled to say that my menstrual cycle has regulated with Chinese herbs and diet change! I cannot even express how truly awesome it feels physically and psychologically to have my body doing what it is meant to be doing. I am truly grateful and appreciative of Dr. Zheng Zeng's sincerity and expert care!
I have been receiving services from Dr. Liu since 2006 and have many visits with him. Every time he has been very professional, observant, accommodating, intuitive and present. Because of his work on me, I have been able to avoid surgery. I would recommend him to anyone needing acupuncture for any reason. I feel totally safe and cared for and I trust his judgment completely. And besides all that, he is, really, one of the nicest people I know!!! Smiling face.
I retired from Baylor College of Medicine after practicing pediatrics for over forty years. In the past ten years I have sought relief from sciatic pain from the acupuncture clinics. Dr. Liu has been able to give temporary relief of the severe pain when my traditional regimen has failed the medicine of 3000 years augments and supplements the medicine of the 21st century. This is the medicine meeting of east and west that I highly recommend.
I have been a patient of Dr. Liu for over a year now. Prior to receiving treatment I suffered from severe symptoms associated with Ulcerative Colitis for almost 10 years. No medication available could give me relief from painful symptoms that included weight loss, fatigue, bloody stool, and fever. With no other options left, save one to remove my large intestine, I came to Dr. Liu to try acupuncture. After three sessions the symptoms that I had lived with for years started to slowly go away. By the fourth session I was completely symptoms free and feeling fantastic. Dr. Liu was able accomplish something no amount of western medicine could...absolute relief. I continue to see Dr. Liu for "tune up's" and have found his mastery of acupuncture has improved my overall health and has been fantastic for stress management.
In April of this year, I developed a rash on the back of my legs that wouldn’t go away. It was very itchy and I was scratching it and damaging my skin while I slept at night. After almost three months of treatment by my medical doctor and a trip to a dermatologist, the rash had worsened and spread to all parts of my body except my face. I was prescribed a steroid shot, two rounds of oral steroid treatments, and a topical steroid cream. None of these had helped my rash. The steroids made me very sick and caused me to have insomnia. I had been weeks without a good night’s sleep from the drugs and the intense itching.
I had an appointment with Dr. Yuxing Liu. I told him that I had never been to and acupuncturist before, but I was really desperate for some relief. He assured me that he could treat me with acupuncture and herbs. I was ready to try anything. After the first treatment, I felt some relief from the "hot” rash and thought maybe I was onto something that could help. Dr. Liu took the time to "listen” and treat me as an individual and not just as another patient. I returned weekly for treatments. Each time, Dr. Liu listened to how I was doing and adjusted my herbs to what I needed the following week. After three acupuncture treatments and three weeks of herbal treatment, the rash was gone. I was sleeping 6-7 hours at a time at night. Now, I am a firm believer in these treatments. I feel great and will continue to see Dr. Liu as needed in the future.
I just wanted to thank you for helping me overcome my
digestive problems. I was having a difficult time eating because my stomach
couldn't keep food down. To make it worse I had acid reflux after meals. But now it is better and I am even returning
to my normal weight. I feel like I am
getting my life back. You are very patient and understanding. Thank you for
taking the time to help me.
For the past six months I have received treatment/care from Dr. Liu in lieu of taking methotrexate as prescribed by a Rheumatologist.
Treatment/service has included acupuncture, heat therapy, Xuan Bi herbs, use of smokeless pure moxa sticks, body work and Qi Gong/tai chi instruction and study.
Any questions I asked were answered thoughtfully.
Results have been positive both emotionally and physically.
I recommend Dr. Liu specifically.
I was diagnosed with Bell's Palsy on November 27th and immediately began acupuncture treatment at a clinic in south Austin. After 7 weeks of treatments I saw very little results and asked the acupuncturist for his recommendation. He said he had done all he could do and referred me to Dr. Liu. I was shocked that someone who was collecting almost $300 a week from me would refer me away to another doctor. I called and set up an appointment with Dr. Liu for the next week.
At the initial appointment Dr. Liu spent almost two hours working on my face. He started with an initial discussion of the Bell's and its onset, then treated the area with acupuncture and massage. I have been seeing him for almost 4 weeks and have seen drastic improvements in facial movement. He prioritized treatment by focusing on the eye area first so that I could begin to close my eye. He has moved onto the smile lines and has been able to bring back movement there as well. He is now working on the brow and forehead lines.
Dr. Liu is extremely well versed in neurological diseases and specifically Bells Palsy. He has great nurtitional advice as well. Dr. Liu teaches patients a multi-prong approach to recovery. He makes sure to spend adequate time examining tender facial muscles and treating specific areas of need during each appointment. He also taught me how to massage the muscles when I go home to encourage recovery in between appointments.
I am so thankful to have come in contact with him. My Bell's Palsy is definitely improving and I am positive his treatments are the cause. I would highly recommend visiting Dr. Liu for acupuncture treatments.
I want to say thank you so much for bringing my health back on track again the treatment that you have giving me has caused me to walk without any pain. I was having a lot of pain in my hip, it felt to me that I would not ever find the doctor, they could not heal my pain. Mr. Yuxing Liu (Le-o) has solved my problem. I feel 100% better and walking better, I have never in my life had good treatment and feel so good. I’m a mother that was having a lot of stress from kids just life in it all going to college at a late start that was stress my special son it was a lot dealing with all that; and a mother of six children, I worked hard all my life.
