I had severe dysmenorrhea (painful menses) and irregular menses for 20 years. I tried every possible option including medicine and exercises to alleviate the pain and nothing worked. My ob-gyn had me on birth control pills (on and off) to help regulate my period and aid me in pain management. However, it only worked moderately and every time I got off the pill, the pain always came back. I suffered from vomiting, diarrhea and nausea during my menses each month. When I came to see Robert, he was very thorough and detailed when asking about my health history. He reassured me and made me feel comfortable during my first visit; being poked with a needle wasn’t easy to absorb. He followed up attentively with my progress. I am now an advocate of acupuncture because of Robert. Within two menstrual cycles, I no longer had any pain, vomiting or diarrhea. I have been taking my Chinese Herbs regularly and have had no pain ever since!
I saw Robert primarily for foot pain prior to surgery and osteoarthritis of the knees. During those hours, I was treated like a VIP. He was careful to make the treatment and room as comfortable as possible. He adjusted the lights, the heat and music as needed. He was very in tune with my well being. He never missed a detail -if I had a bruise, he put arnica gel on it. Robert remembered what was going on in my life and asked me about those things. He recommend a Veterinarian to do acupuncture for my dog, which prolonged his life. Robert shared similar experiences with pain and what he had done to decrease pain and promote healing. He also put me in touch with a Pilates instructor and other professionals that have been most beneficial to me.
Robert Youngs has been more to me than just my Physician in the past few years. I have turned to him more times that I can count, and each time he has helped me through anything that I could not solve elsewhere. He is more than an Acupuncturist... He goes above and beyond in every way possible. He actually takes the time to listen and understand what is ailing me and fixes it. He works WITH his clients in every aspect of their lives not just when it come to a single session.My job as an actress and model is very stressful at times. Keeping my body, mind, and spirit in the right state is extremely important. My body responds to acupuncture better than anything I have ever tried and believe me I have tried many things, from gurus to doctors, I’ve tried them all! Without Dr. Youngs’ guidance I would not be the woman I am today. He is a healer. He has helped me with life lessons, even tweaking my dietary needs to help me with anything that I could not solve. I have recommended him to everyone I know, and trust him with everything. With his help, I am able to maintain a healthy vibrant life. Thank you for always being there for me, and keeping my life stress free! Love to you!
When I started getting treatments with Robert, I had been having peri-menopausal hot flashes at least 15-20 times a day. After Robert treated me with acupuncture and Chinese herbs, my symptoms started to decrease immediatly until I had only one or two per day within two months. A year later, I have only the occasional, mild hot flash, I sleep well, and have great energy. I would highly recommend seeing him for acupuncture and herbal medicine.
I had acupuncture and cupping performed for the first time in my life by Dr. Youngs and I was blown away by the experience. Dr. Robert Youngs helped me formulate an individualized plan to help me with stress relief and to help me lower my blood pressure and cholesterol. As a physician trained in Western medicine, I was admittedly a bit skeptical about acupuncture or any Eastern medicine. After doing my own independent research I have come to understand the power of acupuncture and Eastern medicine and believe that it deserves a greater role in health care. Now that I have experienced it first-hand, I have seen a glimpse of the power of these therapies.
After the birth of my daughter, I never got my period back. After five years of Amenorrhea (no menstrual flow), a friend told me about an Acupuncturist, Robert Youngs, who had helped her get her period back. I saw Robert for one acupuncture treatment and took an herbal formula he prescribed for two weeks. I got my menses back the following month! Robert is really great to work with. He’s kind, has a gentle touch and is a great listener –I really felt like he got me and knew exactly what to do.
