Dr. Xiao is incredible!

I started treatments in February of 2017. After just three treatments, he was able to correct a problem I have had for 5 years. In 2012 I developed bilateral unintentional leg spasms. They were so severe at night it felt like my lumbar region was going to crack. When I stood up or if I pulled my legs up to a knee chest position, they would go away.

For over 5 years I saw a multitude of doctors. I have had many MRI’s, CT scans and X-Rays. I started with a referral from my primary care physician to a neurologist, then to the Spine Institute. And in the meantime, I went to physical therapy for months. In 2013, I developed gastro paresis and lost 50. The GI doctor that was treating me and the movement specialist disagreed on my medication. By that time, my family and I were so disgusted that I went to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester. They did a full workup on me and treated the gastro paresis, but said they didn’t know why I had the leg spasms and sent me home on Gabapentin and Valium.

Long story short, in 2016 I could not take the pain so I went back to the orthopedic and neurologist doctors. I was referred to a pain specialist who did three epidurals that did not help at all. My next choice was an ablation or a spinal cord stimulator. After discussing the choices I decided to try acupuncture. It was unbelievable that Dr. Xiao was able to help me. He and his staff are so knowledgeable, kind and professional. I would highly recommend them.

I have suffered from headaches and neck pain for over ten years

and was trying to manage it with Chiropractic care, physical therapy, massages, medication, etc. I have been seeing Dr. Xiao for 6 months now on the recommendation of a friend who was experiencing similar issues as me and she achieved great results. I am so glad I decided to give it a try as I am so grateful that I have found him. After painting my entire house two years ago my pain and headaches became even worse and I started experiencing loss of strength and scary neurological symptoms. I was becoming unable to function, I stopped playing tennis, exercising, etc. I was missing work due to horrible headaches and I was miserable. I saw three different neurologists. They ran every kind of test….xrays, EEG, EMG, MRI of brain/spine. One neurologist told me I had seizures, restricted me from driving, and prescribed me medication that shut down my kidney function. The second neurologist gave me shots of medication in my head which caused bleeding and other symptoms. The third neurologist said I needed a spinal tap to determine whether or not I have multiple sclerosis. I was prescribed narcotic pain medication, anti-inflammatory medication, and two different muscle relaxers and yet nothing was getting to the root of the problem.

I started seeing Dr. Xiao two times a week for a month, then once a week, and now I am at every three weeks. My strength is coming back, my headaches and muscle pain have diminished about 75% and I am not taking any medication on a regular basis. I am ready to get back to regular life and the tennis court. I have lerned so much from Dr. Xiao and his staff. They really care about you and your health. Again, Thank You Dr. Xiao for helping me heal, reducing my pain and for giving me my life back.

I have been a migraine sufferer for 5 years, with my symptoms escalating to daily in 2015.

After 4 neurologists and even an evaluation at Barrow Neurological, I received diagnoses such as migraine, tension headache, trigeminal neuralgia, and even SUNCT (has no cure). And of course each diagnosis is accompanied by prescription therapy, including medicines with black label warnings.  I’ve been on it all – triptans, Topomax, Fioricet, Tramodal Seroquel, Amitriptyline, Propranolol, and Lamotrigine.  After 12 months of suffering, being unable to get out of bed and taking a medical leave from work, I was finally introduced to Dr. Xiao in January 2016.

The diagnosis and treatment that Dr. Xiao has provided me has literally changed my life.  It turned out my headaches were not primary, but rather secondary to the root cause, Cervicalgia.  With the correct diagnosis by Dr. Xiao, I was able to receive the correct treatment.  Make no mistake – treatment is painful at times, but after each session I feel renewed and ready to take on the world.  Regular treatment with Dr. Xiao combined with the functional exercises has me living my life to the fullest, completely pain and prescription free.  I am back at work, winning on the tennis court and have more positive energy.

I have been a patient for the last year. During this time Dr. Xiao has given me great relief from several acute and chronic orthopedic injuries.

His effective therapy, professional and caring attitude, as well as his practical approach has brought me good health and allowed me to continue with an active, pain free lifestyle!

I have been a patient of Dr. Xiao’s for about 12 years. Thanks to Dr. Xiao, I have been able to endure a career as a hairstylist.

I see the doctor for a massage and adjustment on a monthly basis. Over the years, I have been to chiropractors and massage therapists but there isn’t anyone that can relieve the pain and burning in my shoulders and neck area like Dr. Xiao. He is amazing and really knows the body and how to release the muscles. I really believe in Chinese medicine as opposed to Western medicine in many instances.

At one point Dr. Xiao treated me for a pinched nerve when physical therapy and medications just didn’t cure it. I was in excruciating pain and when I finally saw Dr. Xiao, he was able to release that nerve with cupping and acupuncture as well as manipulations when no one else was able to. The most important thing that I’d like to say is that if he can’t take care of your problem, he will tell you up front at the consultation. I can’t imagine life without Dr. Xiao.

Thanks Dr. Xiao, you are the best. I can always rely on you and your most professional staff to take care of me!

I have been a patient of Dr. Puquan Xiao since June 2002. I believe that I was his first patient when he moved to Arizona.

I came to Dr. Xiao with a diagnosis of degenerative disc disease in all levels of my cervical and lumbar spine, along with spinal stenosis at a few levels. I was dealing with muscle spasms, headaches and pain daily. Dr. Xiao has helped me manage the pain and avoid surgeries that I have been advised to have by other doctors. His various techniques of TuiNa, Qi Gong, cupping, massage, and acupuncture, have been very beneficial throughout the years. I trust Dr. Xiao very much and follow his advice to work on my whole body, not just the problem areas. It has been beneficial to listen and work with the doctor for longevity and to avoid surgery. I would advise anyone with a physical ailment to try to see Dr. Xiao as he has a plan to help most anyone.

Dr. Xiao and his staff have shown me alternative methods of dealing with and addressing my Sciatica and thanks to them, I am on the road to recovery.

I also have learned a lot about Traditional Chinese Medicine and have come to realize the benefits of it in my daily usage and practice.

Dr. Xiao has amazing powerful healing hands and energy. He fixed my lower back which bothered me over 20 years.

He also teaches me how to exercise in the healthy way that helped me stay away from being injured.


13 months I have been gimping around thinking my achilles tendon would be ok soon.

Finally went to Dr. Puquan Xiao.  Most of my pain is gone and most of my range of motion is back.  Not sure when I have been in his office dozens of times with my daughter that I have any rational reason for waiting a year.


I was diagnosed with a Stage 4 recurrence of breast cancer in January 2014 and went to see Dr. Xiao on the recommendation of a dear friend and healer. Since then, Dr. Xiao has been a crucial part of my journey back to good health.

As part of my multi-pronged treatment plan, which included Chinese Traditional Medicine, Western medicine and Naturopathic medicine, I have seen him regularly for acupuncture, massage, and medicinal herbal tea, all of which have benefited my immune system, as well as keeping my stress levels manageable and addressing more minor health concerns along the way.

My oncologists at the Mayo Clinic have been very supportive of my working with him, thank goodness some Western medicine physicians now have an understanding of how outstanding Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners like Dr. Xiao can provide such powerful medicine.

Thank you Dr. Xiao, and his team at YMC, for your wisdom, excellence and compassion!
