It is not Miracle but a Fact


Double Happiness


“For 30 years I suffered from springtime allergies and tried numerous remedies to no avail. A friend recommended acupuncture. After several treatments I experienced complete relief. For the last 2 years I have been symptom free. Thank you for the care and expertise that has dramatically improved my health."
-F.S., Union


“My story is like many. I was originally a skeptic and did not believe in acupuncture. I have had allergies since I was born. While some have subsided they still plague me, even now in my 30s. I was taking medicine regularly and received shots. Furthermore, I have had significant acne since adolescence. This prompted my change in attitude as I was taking an antibiotic daily and I knew this was not good for long term health. My internist suggested acupuncture. I have been receiving treatments for 8 months now and I have not taken any medicine for allergies or acne in that time. I have experienced next to no problems with my allergies (including the spring season which is typically bad for me). My face has been relatively clear and my family frequently comments that it looks better than it ever has. I am very pleased with how I have responded to the treatment. The needles don't hurt, but you do feel them. I like to think of it as a sensation similar to a good workout. And like any good workout, no pain no gain. It's hard to argue with results."                                                                                 -D.M., Flemington


"The newspapers have had lots of reports recently that this is the worst year for seasonal allergies.  Wherever you go you hear people complaining to each other that they feel miserable because their allergies are so bad.   In the past, I was always one of those people, loading up on allergy medicine, staying inside and away from the grasses and trees on “high pollen” days, and running inside to take a shower as soon as I finished any gardening work before the sneezing got too bad.

I have suffered from seasonal allergies almost my entire life and can not believe the difference that a few acupuncture treatments have made for me.  I’ve always had “bad allergies” and received weekly allergy injections during my early teen years to help with seasonal allergies, but the allergy doctor’s conclusion was that I just had to learn to live with allergies and take allergy medicine every summer.  When I first went to see Roger Qian, the allergy season had already begun and I had started on my allergy medicine, but I still developed a continuous sinus headache.  The morning after my first treatment the headache was gone.  After about two more treatments, I decided to stop taking my allergy medicine and see how I felt.  I could not believe the results.  After years of needing allergy medicine, I was “medicine free” and feeling great.   It’s wonderful to be able to go outside and sit on the grass under a tree and not to worry that I’m going to start sneezing in a minute.

My three children (ages 11, 10 and 3 years old) have also had acupuncture for allergies and the results are unbelievable.  After years of carrying around tissues for everyone wherever we went for the never ending runny noses, yelling at the kids “...don’t touch the car, it’s covered with pollen and you are going to start sneezing…”, and constantly bugging my kids to wash their hands and face as soon as they come in the house to wash off the pollen after they finished playing outside, we are allergy-free.  My 11 and 10 year olds were a little nervous about getting their first treatments, but they have been really great about going.  Roger showed them during the first treatment that the needles don’t hurt and Roger works with them to decide how much stimulation of the needle he will do once the needles are in place.  Although my kids still hate the idea of getting a “shot” at the doctors, they know that the acupuncture needles are very small and don’t hurt when they are inserted and they don’t mind going for treatments.

Of my three children, I was the most resistant about starting treatments on my 3 year old.  However, she was very brave and told me that she wanted to give it a try like her brothers.  I was amazed that after only a single treatment her nose seemed to clear right up.  I really prefer, and I think my children do also, a few acupuncture treatments to cure their allergy problem, rather than an entire summer of medicine which can still leave you feeling groggy with a runny and itchy eyes."                                                                                                      -B.E., Raritan


"My 11 year old son has been diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome.  As a result, he suffers from stress, anxiety and has frequent meltdowns (i.e. intense temper tantrums) when he is agitated.  The traditional way to treat my son’s disorder involves visits with a therapist and various medications to deal with his stress/anxiety.  Although we experienced some success with my son’s medications, they always seemed to be short lived.  First, you need to try varying doses of different medications to see what works best, then when you find something that works, it only works for a short period of time.  The dose of the medicine has to be modified often as your child grows and as your child’s tolerance to the medicine changes.  You also need to deal with the side effects from these medications which can range from fatigue and weight gain (from the “safer medicines”) to serious organ damage and many others problems (from some of the older more traditional medications).  Even with my son on various medications, we still went through “bad” cycles where it seemed like everything frustrated my son and he would have meltdowns lasting an hour or more almost every day.  We were always happy when a bad cycle ended, but even during the “good” periods my son would have meltdowns at least 2 or 3 times a month.  Our therapist told us that this was probably “as good as it’s going to get”.

When I was telling a friend about one of my son’s “bad” cycles, she asked me if I ever considered acupuncture.  Although I thought that it sounded like it might be helpful, I told her that I would never be able to get my son to go because he REALLY hates needles.  I told her that I have to physically drag my son into the doctor’s office to get a yearly blood test that he needs because of his medication and that I didn’t think I would ever get him into an office for acupuncture.  My friend encouraged me to at least give it a try and to call Roger Qian.

My son was nervous about his first treatment, but he was willing to give it a try.  Roger spent a lot of time talking to my son about acupuncture and how much he could help him before starting the first treatment.  My son really surprised me on the way home that night when he said that the needles really weren’t that bad and he wanted to go back and try it again the following week.

My son has been getting acupuncture treatments for about 6 months and the results are unbelievable.   He is much happier and walks around with a smile on his face all day.  Although we still have a few “grumpy” moments, they are nothing like what we have experienced in the past with my son.  As a result of the acupuncture treatments, we have also been able to reduce my son’s medication to a very low “maintenance” dose.   We continue to see improvement in my son’s behavior and overall attitude since we started the acupuncture treatments.  He has a more positive attitude about himself and has a new confidence about himself that we had never seen before."                   -B.E., Raritan


"For over 20 years I have used prescribed medicines to manage my asthma.  Proventil, Advair, Singulair and the use of an at home nebulizer were all parts of my prevention program, as was Allegra, which seemed to be the only prescription which prevented me from getting sore throats and allergies.  

I used to consider myself a high energy person.  However, with age, it seemed my energy, especially over the past 4 or 5 years, was more than waning. I was feeling  completely exhausted a good deal of my time, and I felt it wasn’t right for me.

Yes, I have had pinched nerves on my neck and in my back and this year I was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease.  I am aware, at age 56, that we cannot stay young forever.  However, I kept feeling an urge to look for something to help me get my energy back, and that came in the form of Dr. Antonia Mattei of Hunterdon Family Practice and Obstetrics.  Dr. Mattei was so sweet to suggest to me, when I sat and cried in her office,  that although modern medicine has been around for over 200 years, that acupuncture has been around for over 2000, and she gave me Roger Qian’s card and suggested I call him.

I went to Roger with an aching shoulder and complaints of no energy, and he suggested we work on my asthma and allergies as well.  In short order, I stopped all my allergy and asthma medicines.  My energy rebounded and immediately I felt ten years younger.  After a few visits I asked if he could treat me for weight loss and in no time acupuncture has turned my life around.  I was 150 lbs. when I started eight weeks ago.  Now I am 132.  I walk every day and exercise regularly with light weights.  The stunning reality is that I had not felt the energy to do this before acupuncture.  The exercise is not a chore; it is a delightful part of every day.  I have changed the way I eat because along with acupuncture I have realized the need to eat better, to make better choices, and to stand by them.   I cannot thank Mr. Qian enough or say enough good things about him and his practice.  It is a wonderful thing when modern medicine and an ancient practice have the opportunity to work together and I am so thankful to both Roger Qian and Dr. Mattei, for what they know, what they believe in, and how they practice."            -J.L., Milford


 "I am a high school senior now but started showing signs of Irritable Bowel Syndrome when I was in middle school. I suffered terrible stomach pain, broke out in sweats, had sleepless nights and was getting very depressed. When my mom started bringing me to doctors and specialists, I had tests after more tests and it was confirmed that I had irritable bowel syndrome. It was brought on by a traumatic stressful event or events in my life. What stress did I have as a young teen- keeping up my grades, fitting in with my peers, having to get braces and eye glasses, and having a parent come down with a life threatening illness? All those pressures combined were internalized and it reared itself as IBS, (which only added more stress in my life).

I took many medications prescribed and over the counter to hide what was happening to me - no one was to know and my family was sworn to secrecy. My mom and I tried everything- talking to therapists, reading articles, going to all sorts of doctors and I was at my wits end. Here it is four years later and I was barely enjoying my high school years because this disease ruled my life.

My mom suggested one more option - go see an acupuncturist- we had nothing to lose. We went to see Roger Qian L. AC. - an acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist. Initially I was uneasy about having needles poked into me treatment after treatment as many are although Mr. Qian assured me that the needles were harmless and eventually would feel normal. On my first visit, I flinched when the first needle was inserted. But I was surprised that needles were painless while little pins are gently tapped into the skin and felt that they weren’t even there. Many people, including me are afraid to try acupuncture because they have a fear of the needles, although I can assure anyone that acupuncture is harmless and is a miracle without any pain.

In six months Mr. Qian changed my life. In the beginning I was seeing him twice a week and felt the benefits immediately but the results only lasted a few days until I would see him again. As time went on the benefits were longer lasting so our appointments went from once a week to once every two weeks to once a month. I recently stopped taking all my medications, (which I relied on daily) and I am a new person today because of Roger Qian. Finally I can begin to enjoy my high school days I have left and now look forward to going away to college and start living again.

I highly recommend acupuncture. I know many did not try it yet because it’s not covered or only partially covered under some health insurance plans. This is a major issue with acupuncture but it is so crucial to change many people’s quality of life.

If anyone suffers with IBS or other medical issues, I just want to get the word out to do them a favor and change their life- Recommend Roger Qian, I know they will thank you."   -B.H., Ringoes


“As a result of the acupuncture treatment for weight loss, I am 25 lbs lighter and have loss 4 inches of my waist.”     -N.B., Ringoes


"For all who want to lose weight but never seem to be able to I am here to let you know how well Roger’s weight loss program really works. I have always exercised and thought of myself as a pretty good eater, but yet I was getting heavier and heavier. I was convinced that because of being hypothyroid I wouldn’t be able to lose the weight. Wrong!

I have joined his weight loss program and have lost a total of 23 lbs from the second week in October till the last day of 09’. He puts ticks in my ears which reduce my hunger and also takes away the want for sweets. Furthermore, this program has changed my whole attitude. In the past, I would have normally just picked up some food and ate it without any thought, now I think to myself am I hungry or just eating. The majority of the time I have not been hungry. With my appetite shrinking and feeling full quicker I am now more aware of portion control. When I start to feel full I just push the food away. This has helped me to maintain my new weight. Exercise is another key factor in maintaining the loss too. I walk 3-4 days a week for about 3 miles. It is not a lot but enough to keep my metabolism going.

It’s nice for me to go into my closet every day and pick out whatever I want to wear without dreading how it will look on me. I am thrilled at my accomplishments and grateful to Roger for his support. I would encourage anyone who wants to drop their body weight to try this program.    -D.R., Flemington


"I had been a smoker (a pack a day) for over 40 years. I heard about acupuncture as a treatment for smoking cessation from a friend. My friend knows someone who went to Roger Qian for smoking cessation using acupuncture, and he had wonderful success. I decided to give it a try. Roger is a wonderful person who only wishes to help his patients with whatever ailment they may have. His treatment is painless and it works. After only 7 days, I stopped smoking after 40 years! I would highly recommend it to anyone who has a desire to stop smoking. While I was in treatment, he also “fixed” my shoulder that has been bothering me for several years."                                               -G.D., Flemington


"To all hard core smokers on the fence about trying to quit, this REALLY works. I got Roger's number from a friend of a friend. I went into it a 2 pack a day 20 year veteran and non believer. I came out still not sure how I stopped. But somehow it’s been a 7 weeks or so and I don’t miss it enough to start again."                                                                             -A.C., Newtown


"I woke up one morning and was shocked that the right side of my face was paralyzed. After being rushed to the emergency room, I was diagnosed with Bell's Palsy. A coworker suggested acupuncture and that is when I met Roger. After only 6 sessions, I was symptom free. It’s nice to smile again in confidence."                                                                                -N.E., High Bridge


"I met Roger Qian several years ago after I had tried everything available to me in Western medicine to alleviate post surgical lower back pain. After only a few Acupuncture treatments that were in combination with some Chinese herbal medicines, my lower back pain disappeared.  I went about my life as a healthy person again! 

During the past year and a half, I became sick with many illnesses and pains following knee replacement surgery.  It seemed as if my entire immune system had shut down! I found myself going from one "Specialist" to another for a large variety of problems.  None of these were corrected, even with high doses of strong new medicines that brought uncomfortable side effects along with them.  I became very depressed and regularly experienced anxiety and panic attacks.

I have worked as an EMT (emergency rescue with an ambulance squad) for seven years, so naturally, I have only used an understood Western medicine. My complete frustration with the inability of all of the doctors that I was seeing for my many ailments led me to read Dr. Weil's books. Spontaneous Healing, a New York Times Bestseller, repeatedly mentions Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine as a means of helping your body to heal itself.

Then, I thought of my past successful experience with Roger! I was able to make an appointment with him right away; this time the "problems" being treated by one person and all at once!  I had been suffering from a nighttime cough for over a year.  Also, for over seven months I had experienced an extremely painful sinus infection that failed to respond to antibiotics, and even treatment by an ENT "Specialist".  This seemed to cause my debilitating headaches.  My knee replacement surgery resulted in unbearable knee pain and swelling.  I became hopeless and housebound.

On the way home from my first treatment from Roger, my sinuses opened and began draining!  Later that evening, a spot on my knee appeared and also drained fluid.  This relieved a lot of the pain and swelling in my knee! The surgeon had told me that the swelling was probably scar tissue!  I was not surprised at the quickness with which my body was getting rid of the toxins in it!  After a few more visits, the other problems ended as well and I was able to continue all of the medicines that the M.D.'s had prescribed for me.  Now, about five weeks later, Roger is treating me only for low back pain caused by a recent fall from a chair. I expect that it will be totally gone soon."                                                  -C.L., Ringoes


“I’ve am 48 years old and have experienced low back pain of varying degrees for nearly 20 years. At the worst stage I was unable stand without the use of cane and at best I experienced a daily chronic pain that would not go away. For years I sought relief through more traditional methods and eventually surgery before I was referred to Roger Qian to relieve the pain from two lumbar disc herniations. After my first few visits to Roger Qian I was honestly able to say that I had not felt this type of relief in years. The pain gradually subsided with each treatment and I have had a noticeable improvement in my daily quality of life. I continue to visit Roger as I write this to further relieve the modest pain I still experience but coming from someone who was initially skeptical about acupuncture I am now convinced that this method of treatment was the right choice based upon the real life results I have achieved.”           -D.M. Flemington


"I met Roger Qian just over two years ago when I was having an attack of severe back pain.  The pain was to the point that I hadn’t worked in over two weeks and I was going to an orthopedist looking for help with the pain and the only thing that they were doing at the time was giving me pain pills and sending me for an MRI.  The trouble was that it took three tries and 3-4 pain pills in order to stay on the table long enough for the test.  I had reached the point of looking for alternative methods and had called Roger on a Sunday and he returned my call and came to my home to help.  I had three treatments that week and enough relief from the pain to return to work.  I continued my treatments for a couple of weeks and now see Roger every 4-6 weeks for maintenance.  I still get back pain but it is under control and drug free.  He has helped with other problems on occasion such as knee and shoulder pain.  I have to thank him for helping me."                           -M.L., Annandale


"I am so happy that I took Dr. C. Mattei’s referral for the treatment of my pain on my back, hip and left knee.  I went to different doctors had cortisone shots, went to a pain management clinic, and other acupuncturists, but none of them worked.  Until I came to you in July 2008.  After seven treatments, my pain was gone.  I was pain free for 2 months, until the cold weather came.  I know that I can count on you to relieve my suffering.  I am so grateful that there is an alternative method to control the suffering of pain rather than to take medications.  They give you nothing but lots of side effects.

I would recommend anyone to come to you for treatment of pain.  You have no idea how you have given me my freedom back for my daily life.  Thank you so much."  -L. L., Clinton


“Dear Mr. Qian,

I just want to express an absolute thank you from the bottom of my heart, as well as my uncut belly!  Acupuncture was able to turn my transverse breech baby around so that I could have a normal delivery and avoid a C-section.

Three weeks prior to my due date, I found out that my baby had turned her head into my right ribs, her rear end into my left ribs and her legs were over the top of my stomach, so she was laying on her back. This position is impossible to birth naturally.

I have two other children that will be 2 and 7 in the next month, so I have a very busy life and could not afford to take time out to heal from such a surgery. As a certified massage therapist, I started working on my acupressure points on my own. After a week, the baby still had not turned, so I started acupuncture and within 2 visits to you, Jessica was able to turn into the correct birthing position. While I was using acupuncture, I was still lying upside down on an ironing board, burning the moxi-stick, doing pelvic tilts and was praying a lot!

On March 14th, 2010, I gave birth vaginally to a beautiful baby girl. She weighed 8.10lbs and was 21” long. Her cord was around her shoulder, which may have been part of the problem, but we will never know for sure. All I know is that I am now a mom of three healthy children and have recovered wonderfully thanks to you and the acupuncture that you are so talented at.

Thank you again!”

(This letter was published at Hunterdon County Democrat, Dec.6, 2007)

"I have been treated by a Chinese acupuncturist, Roger Qian, in Hunterdon County since August of 2006.  My initial reason for seeking acupuncture treatment was to help my low back pain.  I was in pain for about 10 years and tried many types of therapy.  With acupuncture, I felt relief from the pain in only 5 treatments.  This was a phenomenal improvement from my previous therapies.

My second reason in seeking acupuncture treatment was for infertility.  I am 39 years old and after much testing was told that my Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) was high - 18.9.  Doctors also informed me that this could mean that I am possibly near the end of my fertility.  I began one cycle of IVF that was cancelled after 5 days because my body was not responding to the medications. Frustrated with failed injections, I began treatment with Chinese acupuncture.  After about 2 months of treatment, my FSH level dropped to 8.5.  The month afterward I found out that I was pregnant!  I am now 32 weeks pregnant.  I continue to receive maintenance acupuncture treatments and have not had one day of morning sickness.

Mr. Editor, I am sharing my personal story so that many more may be helped with acupuncture.  My only regret is that my health insurance does not cover these treatments.  I believe that more people would try acupuncture if it were accessible through health insurance.  Acupuncture helps the body heal using its own power to achieve balance.  To me, Chinese acupuncture is a true miracle."                                                                              -S. T.,  Flemington


"I want to thank you Roger for helping me get through a severe bout of bronchitis. I first saw Roger Qian two and a half years ago while he was treating my husband for back pain at that time I was on my third case of bronchitis for that winter season and coughing severely. My regular doctor treated me with antibiotics, cough syrup and even an inhaler and still no relief. Roger mentioned that he could help with maintenance treatment I might be able to prevent getting that sick again. I told him we could try but I was skeptical since I had never had a winter without bronchitis. Roger started treating me in April of 2003 and I haven’t had bronchitis since. There have been times that I thought a cold might be coming on but a call for an acupuncture treatment and along with herbal remedies that he recommended I have made it through. There have been other benefits to the acupuncture treatments. I had also been treated for Irritable Bowel Syndrome by a gastroenterologist for the past eight years with three prescriptions but I still had attacks. There were times that the attacks were so bad that I had to go to the emergency room. At the ER all I was given was pain medication and something to settle my stomach then told to see my regular gastroenterologist. Since seeing Roger I haven’t been to the emergency room for IBS attack and only have to take one prescription on occasion. When people tell me of chronic illness that they have I have told them of my experience with acupuncture and told them to give it a chance since it can’t hurt them to try but they can have some great benefits."                                                                -L.P., Annandale


"After 6 months of chronic insomnia, I was desperate to find a solution to my sleeping problems.  I visited a sleep disorder center, tried prescription medication, listened to self help tapes, tried various herbs from the organic health food stores and even tried "brain wave" therapy.  All to no avail.  My sister in law recommended acupuncture as a solution that she had heard worked for helping insomnia problems.  I thought "why not, I've tried everything else".  I began looking for acupuncturists and found Roger who had no reservations that he would be able to help me with my sleeping issues.  Never experiencing acupuncture before, I was a little nervous during my first experience.  My first session was interesting.  Roger explained my body imbalance and treated me in various points throughout my hands, feet, legs, abdomen, chest, head and ears.  No pain, just an interesting sensation.  After just one session I was actually sleeping at night.  So far I've been to six treatments over the course of 3 1/2 weeks and I have only had two bad nights of sleep.  That is such a start contrast to my usual 2 good nights in the same timeframe.  Roger is confident that if I continue with my treatments and maintain my good sleep cycle for two months, my body will be back on track and my sleep issues will be resolved.  I'm confident in Roger and I am happy to have found him.  I truly believe that the body has the ability to heal itself without the use of dangerous drugs, but it needs to be balanced - and Roger is helping me with that.  I'm looking forward to better health all around and I'm feeling it already."    -K.C.,  Readington 


"After being on chemo and radiation therapy 5 yrs. ago, I wanted to do whatever it took to keep my body functioning healthily. I contacted Roger about 2yrs. later to treat me for various reasons. 

My first reason was to prevent blockages that your body can produce causing toxins to get trapped which could lead to more serious problems. Roger treats me for that using acupuncture to keep the energy flowing throughout my body for better health. 

Other reasons involves stress management, digestion issues, sleeplessness, body pains and as much as nose bleeds! I am easily stressed and we manage it with acupuncture. It is incredible, but Roger is able to tell whether you are sleeping well or not, having an issue with an organ, or having digestive problems without you even telling him what is going on with you!

He has amazed me several times and I am a huge believer in the powers of my acupuncturist. You cannot make these things up and the results are not all in your head. 

Last year I kept getting unexplained nose bleeds. I didn't bother telling Roger about it because I didn't think that he would be able to do anything about something like that, but I happen to mention it to him and he gave me one treatment and the nose bleeds stopped. I also suffer from seasonal allergies from the months of August thru September. We made a plan to start treating it at the end of July for several visits before the symptoms began and I had a much better allergy season this year. I used to suffer everyday for the two months, but with just this series of treatment, I was able to function for weeks at a time allergy free and only for a day or two in between of the symptoms bothering me. That was the first time in many years of experiencing that.

I am not going to try and make believers out of anyone. My experiences are real. My body responds well to acupuncture and I get amazing results that are fairly immediate. I get treated once a month and whatever is ailing me Roger has been able to help me with it. I personally prefer staying away from the Western synthetic drugs and I highly believe that with acupuncture you can do that by having it assist you in letting your own body heal itself."                     -S.D.,  Flemington 


"I had severe pain from my cervical neck area. I have a herniated disc in the C-5, C-6, and bulging disc in C-4. The pain traveled from my neck to the shoulder blades down my arm, wrist, and to two fingers. I had it for 9 months. I had seen several medical specialists and had an epidural shot to relieve pain but it did not help. I went to see Roger Qian for acupuncture treatment as a last resort before selecting surgery. After three acupuncture treatments with Roger Qian, 98% of my nerve pain was eliminated / disappeared. I would recommend acupuncture treatment by Roger Qian to anyone that is experiencing cervical pain."
