Anna Dunevsky, M.D., Ph.D., Director of Comprehensive Rehabilitation Medicine

I had the pleasure to know Mei Qiang as an acupuncturist for more than a year. I was impressed by her dedication to help patients. I observed an excellent result after her acupuncture treatment in many of my patients with back pain, shoulder pain, and different musculoskeletal and neurological conditions.

Vadim Goldshteyn M.D., PM&R

I worked with Mei for two years in an acute rehabilitation facility. Patients, who received acupuncture treatments from Mei, recovered faster and had better functional results.

Clinton T. Sachs, M.D. (retired)

I am a board certified M.D. in internal medicine and psychiatry. Until recently my knowledge about acupuncture was inconsistent. I know now about some difficult painful cases on which qualified physicians could not help, but the acupuncture did. Miss. Xiao Mei Qiang is classically one of the best in her acupuncture specialty.

“Mei cares more for others than for herself,” one of our mutual friends says about her. As a colleague, I trust her clinically and academically. As a trained and practicing practitioner in physical therapy in the state, she is intuitive about neurological conditions. She gets miracle results on patients with hemiplegia and spasticity. As a trained and practiced midwife in China, she gives the best support for delivering babies. As a scholar she translated the ancient text of Chinese medicine into vivid English. I cannot say enough good things about her.

Frederik Jente, L.Ac.

As an acupuncturist myself, I highly recommend Mei not only just for her commitment and compassion toward her patients, but her unique and caring style, which she provides with each treatment. Along with her two locations in New York City, she offers home supportive treatments for those unable to travel. I often find myself referring patients to her for treatment of stroke and chronic pain, which are her specialties. You are in good and caring hands here.

David Chiu, L.Ac.

I had the pleasure of working with Mei in the Acupuncture Fellowship Program at St. Vincent's Hospital. Working in the Rehab department, I was very lucky to have witnessed her skills as an acupuncturist treating many patients with various neurological disorders. From stroke victims with motor function loss and aphasia to people who had suffered spinal cord injuries, Mei demonstrated her expertise in treating these conditions using acupuncture with great results. As much as I found the opportunity to work along side Mei rewarding, the patients were even more thankful and happy to recover from their conditions after a few treatments. As an acupuncturist, Mei is incredibly knowledgeable and skilled in the conditions that she treats.

Anca Marinescu, L.Ac.

Mei is a dedicated practitioner with a real talent for working with neurological complaints like post-stroke sequela and spinal cord injuries. I've seen her get results where others haven't. I recommend her without hesitation.


I have worked with Mei for several years in the rehabilitation field and have witnessed her experienced care. Many of our patients requested to work with Mei and verbalized how good they felt after they were being treated by her. Recently, I underwent surgery and was in need of therapy for scar tissue reduction and ROM. Mei volunteered her services to me, and after several sessions, I have dramatically increased my ROM and mobility in my neck; my scar tissue was greatly reduced and prevented, thanks to Mei. I was so thrilled with my results. I recommended her to be used by other patients and to my surgeon. She is truly gifted with her healing hands and precise with her touch. I could not express enough my gratitude to Mei. Thank you.

Laura E Dunlop, OTR

I came to my sweet friend, Mei, as a “guinea pig” for my internist who had observed how Mei treated his patient whose tracheotomy had just been removed. The patient couldn't speak or swallow, which often happens because of the necessary cut that must be made for the tube, plus the length of time which the muscles have been unable to move. Mei removed her needles and asked, “How do you feel?” And then, “Now swallow.” He did both!

Mei's soft gentleness is so pronounced. Moreover, each treatment demonstrated her passion to her profession and to my 77-year-old body. I am an occupational therapist having worked primarily in psychiatry and pain management. My work has always been coupled with teaching and being a clinical supervisor for NYU's grad program in OT.

Mei found all of my secretly hidden neurological dysfunctions as well as the stress in my brain! After my first treatment I decided to try one narcotic pill instead of 5 – 6 (daily). Success!! For my long-term goal, I wanted to be able to jump off the floor as I did about 15 years ago. I tried to hopscotch on a school playground, but as hard as I tried, my feet were glued to the ground. I called Mei after my third session shouting, “Listen!” She said, “What's that noise?” I said, “My feet, I'm hopping off the floor!”

I have continued to follow up, as I know continued treatments reinforce the new neurological pathways. She didn't think her needles could help my 20-year-old trigger finger, but the first finger on my dominated hand, which was “triggered” for a month or so, was of great concern as I need it for writing and using tools. Within a short while it plateaued, still frequently triggering. She decided to attack it with multiple needles for multiple times one day. Although all those needles hurt, I saw it as “good” pain. It was bruised, but it was then not triggered the next day! Now I've experienced the difference in “old” problems versus more recent ones.

As I've written this from my “log” of my experiences with Mei, her compensation has shown through. I continue to see her, take the “ugly herbs” which I chase with my favorite cranberry juice taste, and there is never a day that my present 29-year-old body and mind don't thank her for being in my life.
