"All of a sudden, I started seeing rashes in my legs and it started itching. I went to urgent care and they said it could be due to some insect bites and gave me some cream to apply. But the rashes and itching eventually started spreading to my abdomen, forearms, wrists, biceps and the itch was unbearable during night time. I visited a dermatologist and I was diagnosed with Lichen Planus and I was asked to apply steroids and was also told that there was no cure for it. I did apply steroids for 3 weeks but i noticed no improvement. I've had sleepless nights during these days. Then one of my friends suggested to meet Stanley. When I visited him for the first time, he noted down my everyday activities mainly focusing on diet. He explained me in detail how when body has toxins, these skin issues could erupt. He suggested me 2 acupuncture sessions every week and gave me some bitter herbs to drink twice everyday. Also I was asked to follow a strict diet and lifestyle. First few days was tough as I could feel my body was detoxing and I felt very tired and i slept for around 10 hours everyday. After the 4th day, gradually my rashes and itch started fading and I'm extremely grateful to Stanley that I'm having peaceful nights again. My skin is becoming smoother everyday and i can see I'm getting back to normal within 3 weeks. I'm always thankful to him for his amazing talent to diagnose the root cause and treat the root cause instead of the symptom."

I SOUGHT OUT TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE TO AVOID SURGERY THANKFULLY TCM HAS TREATMENT.... I highly recommend this place Sik Chi Stanley Chan has been my practitioner for 7 sessions, I feel that he is a very good practitioner I have had acupuncture done along with taking herbs and trying to follow suggestions. I feel great and getting better everyday. I have had acupuncture / traditional Chinese medicine from 4 different acupuncturist and have started receiving TCM 8 years ago along with taking herbs, trying to follow dietary suggestions, moderate exercise, balanced daily activities (work, sleep, play). My first and longest running TCM practitioner is part of an TCM lineage ( hand selected by a master to be part of ) unfortunately I chose to move, so I have experienced good TCM along with receiving work that I was not happy with from other practitioners. Traditional Chinese medicine has proven itself to me so much that I view TCM as true healers and western medicine more like witch doctors/hokey medicine,etc. Don't get me wrong western medicine has it's place. Don't delay go see what TCM can do for you!

I have been seeing Stanley for 4 years for acupuncture for chronic headaches. Stanley is amazing and has helped me so much with the pain. He is a great practitioner who is patient, kind and very knowledgeable. When Stanley informed me that he was starting his own office in Federal Way, I knew that I would move with him to his new practice as Stanley's skills are not easy to find. I highly recommend Stanley for acupuncture."
"The practitioner: I saw Stanley Chan and WOW what a GREAT HEALER! Insomnia, anxiety, fatigue, runny nose, back pain....all quickly faded away or disappeared overnight within 5 visits. I now sleep soundly, my energy is back, no more going through boxes of tissues.....And what I surely like is that he truly has GENTLE HANDS when performing acupuncture, I hardly feel anything when he inserts or handles the needles. No pain. And I am normally sensitive to the slightest thing on my skin, not to mention my "needle in the eye" phobia that makes me a little nervous! My eyes are always tightly shut.... Anyhow I am so grateful to have met Stanley and can only recommend him highly. He is not only experienced and super skilled but has an easygoing and genuine personality. My overall impression is that the practitioners here surely know what they are doing and are focused on doing it well."

"I wanted to get a preventative wet cupping done. I was driving two hours to another specialist so I thought I would try here for convenience. Very satisfied. I do the 'wet cupping,' or hijama as I call it, on the 15th, 17th, 19th or 21st of the lunar month. I got the thumbs up from work and came for a morning appointment. I left feeling light, everything seemed a little brighter, and I looked thinner. I would hypothesize that the wet cupping not only removes dead blood, but also removes pressure from the body. I consider it a transmission flush for the body. Thanks Stanley. I hope to see you again soon."

“I am so blessed to see Stanley Chan who has helped to regulate my menses. I did not have menses for 6 months prior to seeing Stanley, and I did not want to resort to birth control pills. After two acupuncture sessions and a week of herbal tea, my menses came back! I continued to see Stanley and take the tea for a month. Now, my period is back to normal and I no longer need further treatments! ”

“I was a patient suffering from PMS. I felt very uncomfortable before and during my menstruation for 6 months, and my menses reduced during those months. I saw doctors and took some western medicine, but it was useless. Later, I met Stanley Chan. he treated me 6 times with acupuncture, and my symptoms reduced significantly. Later, I developed hemorrhoid during my pregnancy. I could hardly walk with excruciating pain. Thank to Stanley's treatments, my hemorrhoid subsided! I was able to labor without complications! Stanley has helped me to avoid hemorrhoid surgery after the labor. ”

“I have been a patient of Stanley’s for over a year. I initially came in for treatment of migraine headaches, which I had been dealing with for years without any improvement. Thanks to Stanley, my headaches went away without medication and I have not had one for several months! Stanley also helped me with fertility, and most recently the induction of my overdue baby. I cannot say enough about how much Stanley has helped me, and I highly recommend him.”

"I first started seeing Stanley Chan for severe pain from arthritis in my hands, feet and shoulders. In addition, I experience the unpleasant aspects of menopause including hot flashes and night sweats. Mr Chan’s treatments have significantly reduced my arthritis pain. In addition, the advice and herbs he has given me have eased my menopausal symptoms. Mr Chan has helped me a great deal and I am grateful to him for his assistance.

“I would highly recommend Stanley’s treatments to anyone, because Keenan is doing so much better since he came to Stanley for help with Acupuncture. For over a year, he suffered from allergies with a constant stuffy nose, and also had a couple of sinus infections that were so painful. But, Stanley’s treatment has really truly been a blessing and helped heal his allergies. He hasn’t had any issues since we have seen Stanley.”

“I met Stanley back in 2002. I had gotten into a car accident around that time and a friend had referred me to him for massage therapy. He helped me a lot over the years. He’s great with communicating with people. Overall, Stanley’s wonderful healer and I know that it all comes from the heart. he helped relieve my pain and aches. If anyone has back pains or body aches, I recommend that you see Stanley Chan and I couldn’t refer you to a better person.”
