I suffered from extreme back pain and numbness in my legs and feet for weeks, having 4 different doctors tell me to go for physical therapy. I attempted physical therapy but could not participate because it was so painful. My medical coverage Blue Cross would not approve a MRI to determine the cause of the pain. As an alternative, I found Dr. Zeng who assured me from my very first phone call that she could help me. She was able to completely stop my pain in the first three visits and had the numbness reduced to a minimum by the eighth visit. She informed me of my treatment plan the entire time and assured me the numbness would go away as long as I listen to my body and rest so it can heal. I tell you today, a month later that I no longer have pain or numbness. Dr. Zeng not only saved me from pain, she saved me from believing that I would have to live with this discomfort the rest of my life. Sincere thanks Dr. Zeng!

I'm a self employed contractor. In the last twelve years I have been treated with acupuncture for sciatic nerve and arthritic knee pain. In both cases the debilitating pain was relieved and in the case of the back pain has never returned.
Dr Zeng has treated my knee with great success and I will now see her on an as needed basis. My knee has no cartilage left and eventually will have to be replaced.. Acupuncture can not replace the knee, but it has reduced the pain and swelling to tolerable levels. My orthopedic surgeon said the knee can be replaced when the pain is unbearable. I hope to extend that point as long as possible.

I have been seeing Dr. Zeng since 2010 for lower back pain. The first year I had approximately 20 visits.  Since that time I see her when I have a problem just for a tune up.  

During the last snow storm I pulled a muscle in my back and had to have a treatment.  The pain was eliminated with one treatment.  Over time Dr. Zeng has become a good friend and totally confident with her treatment.  

I recommend her highly and all I can say it acupuncture has worked for me.

I had been taking medication for anxiety and insomnia for 10 years. Over the past two years, I noticed that the medication no longer worked well without increasing the dosage. My doctor thought the dosage was too high and prescribed new medications. The new medications did not work. I tried to stop taking the medication in its entirety and wound up with a very severe case of rebound insomnia. As a last resort, I decided to try acupuncture. 

Dr.Zeng asked many questions regarding my health, diet and life style. She made recommendations for simple diet changes. I went for 10 weeks of acupuncture and took the herbs (pill form) she recommended. During the 10 weeks she had me reduce my anxiety medication. After the first two weeks, I was sleeping through the night. 

It has been 2 weeks since my last treatment. I have stopped taking my anti-anxiety medication. I sleep 7 hrs during weeknights and 8 hrs on weekends. I feel less anxious. The results were better than I expected.

Seeing Dr. Zeng was well worth the time and money.

Dr. Zeng is an excellent practitioner. She is thorough and very caring. The needles are painless and provide good relaxation. I originally came for neck pain. Dr. Zeng took an extensive medical history and came up with a results-oriented treatment plan for my other chronic medical conditions. As a result of her treatment plan I have avoided the need for further invasive GI exams and costly medications. Dr. Zeng is wonderful.

I had chronic shoulder pain for about 4 years, specifically around the scapula. I tried medications, such as cortisone shots. Nothing worked. About 3 weeks ago, I decided to try acupuncture. I went to see Dr. Zeng. I have to tell you, she is experienced, kind, caring, compassionate, and most importantly, she knows what she is doing. A combination of acupuncture and cupping techniques is helping me. After 3 sessions, I am feeling so much better than before. I am not 100% cured yet but for the 1st time in a long time, I have hope again. With a few more sessions, I am confident Dr.Zeng will get me there.

I have had severe pinched nerve issues for over a year as a result of arthritis in, and degradation of, my C5 and C6 vertebrae, as well as rotator cuff injuries. Well over a dozen times a day, and if I sleep anywhere but on my back, my left arm goes tingling numb down to my fingertips. I have completed physical therapy sessions. I have taken anti-inflammatory medications. I have gone to bi-weekly massage therapy. I stretch daily. I use a cervical traction machine. Many of these treatments did, and continue to, overlap.

While the massage therapy at times identified pain areas, no progress was made. After a year of discomfort and terrible sleep, I finally decided to give acupuncture a shot. Within two sessions my instances of numbness decreased by 50% and I was able to sleep on my side and stomach for the first time in over a year without numbness. By my 6th session the instances decreased to 20% occurrence and the level and length of discomfort had decreased to the same level.


During my acupuncture sessions, Dr. Zeng also introduced me to traditional cupping techniques for my chronic lower back problems. I have had back issues for over 25 years. I can tell you without an ounce of exaggeration, my back has never been stronger in these last 25 years. 


I cannot recommend Dr. Zeng highly enough. Her prices were as much as 50% lower than other Rhode Island acupuncturists I researched. She is a pleasure to visit with during your appointments. She is very attentive to your questions and concerns - and most important, she is an expert in her field. Give acupuncture and Dr. Zeng a try, you will not be disappointed.

I had upper back and shoulder pain for several weeks and the pain propagated to the elbow. I was often waked up by the shooting pain at night. My family doctor suggested to me to take 3,200 mg of ibuprofen a day to kill the pain. After two weeks of heavy dosage of ibuprofen, the situation still remained. Through a search for acupuncturist in RI, Dr. Zeng's website popped up. Went to see her on a Friday, she found the problem and treated my symptom with acupuncture and cupping. Not much difference was felt immediately after treatment but I slept through the night without been waked up by the pain for the first time in weeks. Went to see her for two more treatment in the following week and she concluded that I was cured at the last treatment. It's almost a month now, the pain has never returned. Dr. Zeng has a strong background in traditional Chinese medicine plus years of trainings in western medicine. She is a dedicated and sincere doctor, always putting her patient first. Most importantly, her treatment really works! Thank you, Dr. Zeng

Dr. Lili Zeng is fantastic! She really listens to and cares about her patients. I came to her unable to beat exhaustion, achy and always cold. She was able to help regulate the circulation in my body so I am less tired, in less pain and I'm all around warmer than I have ever been. She's very considerate and I am very impressed with her. I highly recommend her. Thank you so much, Lili!

Dr. Zeng was able to relieve my shoulder and neck pain, that was controlling my life. I can now sleep through the night and do yard work and play golf again. Her warmth and understanding for her patients is only one of her great qualities. I felt welcomed at every visit. Thanks again.

In Late June I came down with Bell's Palsy......I called Dr. Zeng the next day. She came to meet with me the very same day. After a series of 11 treatments I am completely looking and feeling like my self again. Dr. Zeng is extremely professional and caring. I highly recommend her."

My experience with Dr.Zeng was positive and 
encouraging! Her initial consultation is free and I fully expected to return for treatments, however, she was able to assess my condition and offer techniques for self-care. I left with the impression that Dr.Zeng focuses on the patient's wellness far beyond 'routine' medical practices.

Dr. Lili Zeng is a critical part of my wellness strategy. I had been in pain for years with my neck. I tried everything, chiropractic care, physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medicine. Nothing was working. Acupuncture was next on the list and it works! I found real relief. Dr. Zeng really cares about her patients. I trust her with my health and well-being.

Dr. Zeng is very kind, and she was accomodating in scheduling my appointments. I went for relief from muscle pain and headaches. I'm glad I added acupuncture to my wellness tools. The location is convenient, easy access. I'll go back when I get a flare up, and in today's busy world, there's bound to be one! Thanks Dr. Zeng!

I was referred to Dr. Lili Zeng by a friend of my mother's because I have been having chronic back pain. She was very courteous and answered all my questions in her consultation, which was free by the way. I opted to have the treatment immediately after the consultation. The office is clean and comfortable and the treatment experience itself was free of discomfort. I went back for two followup treatments and in the subsequent weeks I felt better, and it definitely took the edge off the pain. If it returns, I will definitely be going back for more treatment.
