“I suffered a major ischemic stroke on November 16, 2016. As a result, I lost use of my left arm and hand. I began seeing Dr. Hsu on July 5, 2019 for acupuncture. I have seen her twice each week since I started. She has used Traditional Chinese Medicine – moxibustion, herbs, acupuncture and cupping to treat my condition.
I have recovered the recognition by my brain of my arm and hand! This is incredible progress. First, I noticed the sense that I could use my hand to dress. This happened immediately after my first or second treatment. Next, I had a daydream that was frequent in my childhood. As a child, I often imagined doing handstands and would do so. As an adult, I stopped acting on the urge so I was surprised when one morning after about a month of treatment, I had the urge to do a handstand! I had completely lost this “memory/daydream” after my stroke without even realizing it. I continue to gain use of my hand – naturally washing both hands, instead of thinking about washing my left, too, as an afterthought. Most recently I pulled on a sock with both hands before I realize what I was doing. After my stroke, my husband has nagged me (a lot!) to use my left hand. It never made sense until now, when my brain recognizes my hand and my hand recognizes my brain. I am now using my left hand more and more.
I highly recommend Dr. Hsu. She is extremely well educated and intelligent, as well as honest and friendly. She successfully treats a wide range of medical conditions.”
“I have been a patient of Dr. Hsu’s for over two years. Mu profession as registered nurse has left me with numerous musculoskeletal as well as nerve impingement issues. I searched for a long time to find a physician who was traditionally trained in Chinese Medicine and also in Naturopathic Medicine, and I was delighted to finally learn about Dr. Hsu.
I find Dr. Hsu to be very knowledgeable, professional, and caring. She listens to her patient’s issues and is a good problem solver. Dr. Hsu’s background in nutrition is invaluable to helping prevent flare-ups; and under her guidance I am learning to think about food differently and make wiser choices. I have found some of the food I once thought were healthy are actually unhealthy for me and I am now adjusting to a gluten free diet as well.
I had already been benefiting from Dr. Hsu’s skills as an acupuncturist for about six months – but these skills were put to the test when over a year ago I fell and sustained bilateral fractures of my sacrum. I had mobility and pain issues. I obtained a lot of pain relief from Dr. Hsu’s acupuncture treatments; she also spent time helping me identify the different types of pain I was experiencing and how I could handle it. The pain relief I received from Dr. Hsu enabled me to reap the benefits of my physical therapy.
I recommend Dr. Hsu without hesitation. She is a valuable member of my healthcare team of physicians, specialist and therapists, an is a great addition to our local healthcare community. We are very lucky to have Dr. Hsu working here in Northern Kentucky, and it is my sincere hope that she is able to continue her practice here.“
“I started seeing Dr. Hsu in March of 2019, for prostate health, because my Father had prostate cancer. When I arrived, Dr. Hsu conducted an extensive interview about my physical, mental and emotional health. We started working on all my issues, and almost 1 year later, my prostate health has improved, my anxiety drastically reduced, and also my digestion has improved. I have been able to eliminate several OTC medications such as Omeprazole, prostate supplements, baby aspirin, fish oil, etc. In a year’s time, she has improved my overall health and quality of life. I would recommend her to anyone without hesitation. She is a valued member of our community.”
“Three and a half years ago I became a first time patient of Dr. Monica Hsu. Having a long history of digestive inflammation, I came to her very weak and unable to absorb nutrients properly. After taking an extensive medical and personal history, she brought a completely new insight into my situation like I had never heard before. As a result, I had many questions and she took the time to answer each one wisely and in a way I could easily understand. That day I had my first acupuncture session. As sick as I was, that evening I could tell my body was already working to heal!
Today I continue to see Dr. Hsu. My gut inflammation has improved dramatically. One of the unexpected benefits has been the clarity of thought and calm to my nervous system I have experienced with regular sessions. Her skillful acupuncture worked for me when nothing else could.
Dr. Hsu has a wealth of knowledge that she enjoys teaching me and I continue to value her wisdom and discernment. She is compassionate and eager to see her patients thrive and get well. I am very thankful God led me to her!”
“I’m happy with the treatment I’m receiving from Dr. Hsu. She is very nice and caring. I have been to see her once a week for four weeks now. She is working on a number of problems; migraine, pinched nerve, restless legs, insomnia and hormone imbalance.”
“Acupuncture was a good experience”
“I like that they have a quality doctor doing the acupuncture. I believe she really cares about the person.“
“Dr Hsu is a great doctor to do my acupuncture, she heals my knee pain and teaches me how to take care of my body well. I love Dr Hsu.”
“All of the people at Go Beyond are very friendly and helpful. The acupuncture is great I highly recommend it. All of my arthritis pain is gone as well as my lower back pain. Acupuncture has helped with so many of my problems that many of my friends and family have now tried it also and are happy with the results.”
“My acupuncture sessions are starting to show improvements in my health! I’ve been suffering from an hormonal imbalance and chronic digestive issues. The doctor is super knowledgeable and friendly. I absolutely love going to this place!”
“Dr. Hsu really took her time and did a great job. She is very nice, knowledgeable and gave me lots of great health advice besides the actual acupuncture session. The acupuncture session itself was amazing. I could feel it right away and know I will benefit greatly from this. I’m looking forward to going back soon.”
“I have seen many doctors this year and even had surgery. This was the first place that a doctor has listened to my concerns. Our conversation about my body made sense to a lot of my issues. This was the first day and it won’t be my last. My sciatica is at bay for now. I will most definitely return to help with more issues that I have. Thank you, Go Beyond Medicine, you made my day”
“Talk about thorough! I went through a Groupon for acupuncture. Dr Hsu (pronounced “Shu”) was fantastic. She spent an unbelievable amount of time with me, going over my health background and goals for treatment. She was friendly and personable, yet completely professional. The procedure was not painful…just a little bit of discomfort to be expected. I was left comfortable, with heating lamps and soothing music. I was given an emergency call button if I needed it. When I was finished, the assistant, Louisa explained how to make the most of my treatment, with suggestions how to awaken parts of my body throughout the day. I have some significant health problems, but am very interested in alternative and Eastern medicine combined with traditional treatments. I highly recommend Go Beyond Medicine!”
“The service is undeniable and efficient. My acupuncturist fantastic. First place I’ve been treated for a long list of complaints and can measure positive results.”
