Stiff neck

Unfortunately i started the new year with a very painful stiff neck.

It started on the right side and moved to the left. I could hardly hold my head up. Thanks to Dr Tan and her magical treatments the pain was gone in three sessions and I had full range of motion!

Varicose Veins, Low Back & Neck Pain

I came to lovely Honolulu to see my sister and she recommended me to see Dr Karen Tan.

Varicose Veins

I have had my large and small veins in my legs giving me trouble for 6 years- lots of swelling and pressure going on. Then my lower back has been giving me trouble for about 15 years. My neck has been bothering me for about 6 years. After one treatment, I felt about 90% better. The second treatment was even better. It feels so good to be pain free. I’m trying to decide whether I should stay or take the doctor home with me!

Dr Tan is a miracle worker!

I first went to see her after being told by medical doctors that I would never have a child.  They said there was nothing medical science could do to help my husband and I conceive.  I wasn’t a candidate for IVF or infertility medications.  I heard about Dr Tan from a co-worker and decided to see if she could help me.  She put me on a comprehensive program and  I got pregnant 2 months after I started on her program.   My pregnancy was healthy and uneventful as was the birth of my daughter.  Thanks to Dr Tan, I now have a healthy baby.

Refreshing approach to healthcare

I have found Dr. Karen Tan’s knowledge, energy and demeanor are unsurpassed in the health care community.

She has treated me for a variety of illnesses all with great success. She didn’t just treat an illness, but she clearly explained how and sometimes even why each illness I had was interacting with my body and provided information for how I can prevent recurrences. I found this approach to be enlightening and refreshing. I always had the utmost confidence when I had a health issue, Dr. Tan would fit me in her schedule, no matter how busy she was, and she would give me her complete and undivided attention. Further, she made me feel as if we were working on the problem together, not just her treating me; I admire and appreciate this approach in health care. Dr. Tan’s desire to continue to learn new treatments is extremely impressive. Her ability to bring new concepts for care back to her patients and clearly explain these concepts was not only of value but also encouraging in that I knew this was a person who wasn’t just “sitting back” and resting on her laurels. Dr. Karen Tan has provided me with great care and compassion which encouraged me to heal and grow as a person. I am forever indebted to the care she has provided me and highly recommend her to all of my friends, and would highly recommend her to anyone. – John H. Magnus

TMJ pain

I can’t say enough about the acupuncture and naturopathic treatment that Dr. Tan practices.

For years I suffered severe TMJ pain from 2 – 5 times per week, a definite 10+ on the pain scale. It was so debilitating that that all I could do was to sit very still and quietly to minimize excruciating pain, and hope that it would go away soon. I could not work, I could not play, I could barely function anything I did would create more pain.
After a few treatments with Dr. Tan, the TMJ pain. A combination of acupuncture, naturopathic medicine, and gentle encouragement about lifestyle changes has me a new TMJ pain-free person. No more pain. I’m positive that the treatment worked because Dr. Tan evaluated my whole body, mind, and spirit, and did not just treat the symptoms. It just does not get any better than this!
