Category: Energy and Balance
I was, once, one of these people afraid of acupuncture... until I met Klaudia!
Klaudia has transformed my life and got me back into shape (treating me
for low-energy and overall balancing) in just a few sessions.
The following story illustrates perfectly this statement: I was in
Mexico for business at the beginning of the year. During my trip, I met
with a doctor specializing in bio-energy resonance. Contrary to what he
was experiencing with every single one of his clients, he could not
find anything wrong with me. The only question he asked was whether I
had received acupuncture treatment recently because all my meridians
were so perfectly balanced! This was in January and my treatment
(acupuncture and herbs) lasted four weeks in November.
Klaudia pours her heart and science into your well-being: no two
sessions are alike and you always end up feeling better and
re-energized. She is very thorough during the intake and never forgets
anything you tell her. She has excellent follow-up and shows true
concern for your health. She is patient and listens to you with
intensity. She is bright and fun and shares her knowledge as both an
acupuncturist and herbalist with grace and humility. She is sweet and
generous and makes you feel important and taken care of.
If you are concerned about your health, happiness and general
well-being, Klaudia Bae is the acupuncturist you do not want to miss

Category: Sinusitis - Impacted Sinus
I have suffered from chronic
sinusitis for 10 years and can attest to the difficulty in alleviating
not only the causes but also the symptoms of this condition. I have lived with
congestion and inflammation of my left sinus and all the ensuing health
problems. Yes, a netty pot has provided some relief, but only a few hours after
use. When the sinus is seriously aggravated my whole system was affected and I
was vulnerable to a range of illnesses. In desperation I have taken prescribed
antibiotics with minimal or no results.
I have finally found relief! Klaudia determined a regimen of herbs for
the sinusitis. For six weeks I have been
taking a combination of herbal formulas, and the results have been most
satisfying. I can breathe deeply through the nostril that was impacted, and the
pressure of inflammation is gone. Occasionally congestion has returned but my
system is able to purge the sinus within a few hours.
I have dreaded hay fever
season and was concerned that allergies would once again contribute to my
sinus problem. Klaudia added another formula to my daily regimen
and the 'running faucet' has been turned off without the negative side effects of over-the-counter decongestants. Herbal
treatment has me breathing the the Spring air deeply.

Klaudia is amazing. I started going to her in 2008 to ease the discomfort from
chemotherapy side effects. I continue to rely heavily on her to rebuild my
immunity. Whether its needles in my ears, taking herbs or receiving cupping on
my back, she gets the health results I desperately want. And she absolutely is
the nicest person I've ever met.

I truly believe that Klaudia can heal anything. She has healed me on so many

Category: Men's Health - Prostate, elevated PSA
Klaudia's thorough knowledge of traditional Asian medicine, her gentle and
caring nature, and her experience and dedication to her patients make her an
invaluable doctor and healer. I first started treatments with Klaudia at a time
when I was in-between acupuncturists for several months. My acupuncturist of
more than 20 years had retired and a colleague referred me to her. Initially, I
was reluctant to see anybody because I had been under the care of a
phenomenal healer for decades and was not confident of finding another. But after meeting Klaudia and starting
treatments with her, it soon became apparent to me that I was under excellent care.
At the time of my first treatment with Klaudia, my PSA level had become
elevated from 4, my normal, to 5. Considering my retirement age, I was
concerned about the possibility of developing prostate cancer. Klaudia treated
me with acupuncture and herbs and three months later my PSA level dropped to
4.6. Now, six months into my treatments with her, my PSA level continues to
drop and is currently 4.2. I continue to see Klaudia regularly to benefit my
overall health as well as my prostate health, and I highly recommend Klaudia Bae
to all who are seeking healing.

Category: Women's Health - Menstrual Irregularities, Ovarian Cysts
For most of my adult life I would catch 5 or 6 colds a year. I was constantly
worn down and always on the verge of getting sick. In addition to always
fighting off a cold, my menstrual
was extremely unpredictable and my cramping and mood swings were
almost unbearable. Western doctors just kept trying to put me on birth control,
which just masked a much larger issue. In my very first session with Klaudia,
she was able to detect exactly what was going on--that I had ovarian cysts
(a fact confirmed by ultra-sounds). Once
again, Western doctors merely wanted to put me on birth control and call it a
day. I refused and instead continued to get treatments from Klaudia. My periods
are now regular and my cramping and mood swings have considerably decreased.
Also, I haven't had a cold in 6 months--truly miraculous. These are just two of
the innumerable ways in which Klaudia has healed me. She's also healed my torn
hamstring, my insomnia, my low energy levels, my sprained knee, headaches, etc,
etc, etc. She’s helped me in so many ways. I am happy to recommend her to
my family and all my friends.

Category: Women's Health - Postpartum
After having a wonderful baby boy I found myself in an
unexpected situation. I had heard about the baby blues and had heard stories of
post partum depression. The furthest from my mind was that this could ever
affect me personally. I had always prided myself to rationalize in times of
distress and counter by getting immersed in my job or pick up my workout
routine. None of the strategies took. No balance, no center. For the first time
in my life I experienced panic attacks and I could not find rest although I was
increasingly sleep deprived.
I met Klaudia for my first acupuncture treatment
in my entire life during that time. My anxiousness and panic clearly radiated
from my middle and as soon as the first needles touched my ear I felt energy
zoom through my body trying to untie knots and break barriers inside. I will
not attempt to describe my physical experience but that night I slept as deeply
and restfully as I hadn’t in months.
continued to see Klaudia on a weekly basis for four months and still see her regularly
to this day. Her treatment through acupuncture, massage and herbs was
instrumental in helping me clear through the fog. Our conversations, together
with my families support helped me to face the circumstances that had brought
me to my breaking point. Step by step I gained my balance back, back to a newly
organized and focused self.
Last week my son started walking, a happy, content
and unbelievably beautiful little man. I am extremely thankful to Klaudia for taking
on the role that she has throughout this journey of mine.
Her knowledge, skill
and unbelievably caring personality has influenced my life healingly and

I was diagnosed with kidney problems and heart disease and was put on
medications for high blood pressure, abdominal swelling and leg
swelling from water retention. After a couple of years of taking
medication every day and feeling physically terrible from the side
effects I tried Chinese medicine with Klaudia. Before this my doctor
prescribed more medications for the heart and for the side effects.
Within 6 months of taking Klaudia's herbal tea twice a day I was able
to stop taking the diuretics and get off the heart medication
completely. I am continuing to take the herbs as if my life depended on
them because it does. It is not tasty but I am grateful for the natural
medicine she gives me and for helping me to live a much healthier life
than I would on the drugs. I don't have migraines and sinus pressure
anymore. I don't have to wake up 4 or 5 times a night to urinate and my
urine is no longer a milky color. I had not realized it was not normal
to have milky color urine because it had been that way for as long as I
can remember. Klaudia gets on my case a lot about my bad sleeping
habits and not exercising enough and not keeping up with my qi gong but
she has a heart of gold and she genuinely cares. She spent a huge
amount of time getting to know my situation. She also seems to be very
knowledgeable about the western medical side. I have tried one other
Chinese medicine doctor before, a well-known one, but the herbs were
not quite right for me and his acupuncture and herbs fees were more
than double for far less results. I highly recommend her.

Category: Neurology and Cardiovascular
I have been going to Healing & Image for more than a year for
massage from Klaudia's mother who is a shiatsu pain treatment
specialist, but always got my acupuncture from my acupuncturist of
eight years in the San Gabriel Valley until something happened. I
developed an illness I had never seen before. Numbness in my hands and
face, plus a strange sort of congestion in my head. My head's
circulation had been mediocre for years as well, not to mention having
chronic low energy. Klaudia was able to quickly and correctly diagnose
my condition. After a few visits with Klaudia, my numbness and head
congestion was permanently cured, and after about two months my facial
circulation and general energy went from terrible to normal. I am
looking forward to seeing the results from future regular treatments
with Klaudia. Klaudia is the most conscientious and careful
acupuncturist I have ever seen. She takes a lot of extra time and care
for all of her patients. She definitely goes that extra mile and many
more. I am in India for a month where I can't find a single reliable
acupuncturist, so I bet you know the first thing I am going to do when
I put my feet on American soil...

Category: Esophageal Stenosis secondary to Esophageal Cancer
After being diagnosed with esophageal cancer my wife encouraged me to
try acupuncture with Klaudia. I was very skeptical, but continued
treatments because I couldn't swallow most solid foods. The laser
treatment that I received at Johns Hopkins Hospital removed the cancer
but left scarring in the lower esophagus causing stricture at the
junction between the stomach and esophagus. Klaudia gave me some
special herbs that worked to shrink the inflammation in that area, and
treated me with acupuncture to increase the natural flow to the trauma
During the same time my medical doctor was mechanically trying to
dilate my esophagus by putting me under anesthesia every eight days to
two weeks to do an endoscopy with a series of dilation balloons. After
12 treatments of that my condition did not improve. Klaudia gave me
more herbs and treatments and asked me to hold off on the dilations to
give her treatments a chance to work. I am happy to say that I have not
been back for Dilations and can eat everything I want. Klaudia has made
me a believer in her abilities as a healer. I will go to her first with
my medical problems as she researches all aspects then makes
recommendations. I would recommend her to anyone looking to improve

Category: Musculoskeletal - Acute Lumbar Sprain (Back Pain)
I woke up with severe lower back pain one morning which I didn't think
would be a problem until the next day - I couldn't walk. I rested
and did all the things we are told to do: hot bath, heat, icing and
stretching. After all that I was still in pain and still couldn't walk.
Then a friend referred me to Klaudia for acupuncture so I went. After
my session I felt a lot better and went again for deep healing massage
from Klaudia's mother (Jong) and more acupuncture from
Klaudia. And I gotta tell ya, on a scale of 1 to 10, I felt
at a low level below 3. Afterwards I was able to walk again and now I
do not feel any pain whatsoever. I will continue to see Klaudia to keep
my back in shape and I highly recommend going to Klaudia for
acupuncture and her mom for deep healing massage. They're simply the
best - better than any massage I ever received. And for all who are
skeptical of acupuncture, don't be! It is well worth it if you
are serious about your health and well being. It makes me feel
great knowing Klaudia cared so much for my well being. Klaudia:
thank you for all your help.

Category: Musculoskeletal - Sciatica
Several years ago I made a very conscious decision to exercise and get
in shape. Had I trusted myself and officiated my own program, at my own
pace, I would have been fine. Instead, I hired a physical trainer.
After extensive sessions and dedication, I started to question my
trainer in regard to certain areas of discomfort: the outer right
thigh, both left and right calves, and left and right biceps. When I
questioned my trainer, the answer I got was a question: "Who is
your trainer? You must trust your trainer!" Finally I quit and thank
God I did! The problem was, he had too much weight on every machine I
was working on. It destroyed my outer right leg muscles and tendons,
which eventually caused a sciatic condition from the hip to the ankle.
I experienced many sleepless nights with pain because the pain
increases when the body lies horizontal. With the calves, I had many
many charlie horses (three tiered), and very, unbelievably painful!!
Klaudia has started to treat me and after only 4 or 5 acupuncture
sessions on my right sciatic nerve, I have had no sleepless nights and
all pain on that side has subsided. Now, I am looking forward to her
treatment on my biceps and my calves. I shall keep you updated.

I FINISHED! Thanks so much Klaudia. Without your help, this picture
would not have been. Who would have thought that three weeks ago when I
injured my left ankle tripping on an uneven sidewalk while training at
night... (not too smart, huh?) that I would be crossing the finish line
at the Honolulu Marathon. That's 26 miles of running, jogging, walking
and laboring with only one thought in my mind... "Must Finish".
Klaudia, thanks to your incredible treatment and caring, I was able to
cross the finish line in 6 hours. Not my best time, but I made it! With
utmost gratitude, Herb Tasaka.

Category: Women's Health - Hysterectomy secondary to Uterine Cancer
Last year I had a hysterectomy after being diagnosed with uterine
cancer. About 6 weeks before the surgery I walked into Klaudia Bae's
clinic to find out if there was anything that Chinese medicine could
offer. I was told by Klaudia that in America, acupuncturists are not
allowed to treat cancer except as supportive therapy. She explained
that the services she could offer was to boost my immune system before
the surgery, prepare my body for the traumatic experience, and prevent
the spread of the cancer before the surgery, and after the surgery to
help with the recovery and prevent a relapse of the cancer. I followed
her advice and began acupuncture and herbs during that time and for
four months following the surgery. She put me on a healthy diet that
I'm still following today. It was a difficult time physically, mentally
and emotionally but Klaudia's caring and gentle ways put my mind at
ease and the acupuncture helped to calm my anxiety. My surgery was a
success and no radiation or chemotherapy was needed. My recovery was
miraculously fast with a minimum amount of pain. I strongly believe
that the acupuncture and herbs helped with all of this, including the
complete resolution of the cancer. Now I am back for more treatments
for other aspects of my health. Klaudia is truly one of a kind.

For many years I have had terrible PMS, low energy, digestion problems
and back pains. I had been seeing an acupuncturist from China for herbs
and acupuncture for over 7 months. My energy seemed to get better but
most of my hormonal problems continued. Then a friend recommended that
I go see Klaudia. After just 3 months of treatments there were great
improvements in all areas including the mental, emotional and physical
symptoms. She had me chart my body temperature and used it to interpret
the problems related to my monthly hormone imbalance. Based on this she
gave me 2 different herbal teas to take at different times of the month
to adjust different aspects of my hormones. The other acupuncturist
only gave me the one type of tea. From what I have read about the
different types of hormones being active at different times of the
month, Klaudia's technique made sense. If she can help me, I'm sure she
can help almost anybody. But in addition to her talents and skills as
an acupuncturist, Klaudia is a sincere and caring person. She listens
and always makes me feel as if I matter as a person and goes out of her
way to take good care of me.
