SIMPLY TRADITIONAL, CLINICALLY EFFECTIVE.
AMERICA’S PREMIERE CHINESE MEDICINE HOSPITAL & CLINIC
20 YEARS OF SUSTAINING, SUPPORTING AND INCREASING VITALITY
YAO clinic has been in business since 1997 and continues to bring to its patients new and creative ways of practicing traditional Chinese Medicine backed with western internal medical analyses allowing for truth in diagnosis and purity in treatment.
We know that many of you have been to countless professionals looking for answers, yet no one seems to really understand what’s going on. YAO Practitioners are consistently the ones who see patients who are at their wits’ end. YAO also sees many who are new to Chinese Medicine and are simply looking to improve one or two aspects of their overall health.
Our doctors manage flux in your human embodiment using herbal pharmacology, acupuncture, functional medicine, homeopathy, naturopathy, Chinese astrology, and feng shui. Additionally, our doctors are well studied in reading western medical blood chemistry and fuse the information of blood chemistry analysis with their Chinese Medical background. Due to our breadth of study and experience, our practitioners are quickly able to not only know and see what is imbalanced but to also understand and hear what will realistically work with each person both in circumstance and budget. YAO truly offers the very best in personalized medicine.
YAO’s Medicine Department works hand in hand with YAO Bodywork and YAO Beauty creating a wonderful space to sustain, support & increase vitality. Our Medicine Department works as follows:
YAO Hospital Appointments
Much like a visit that one would have as an out-patient at a Western Medical Hospital, patients are here for an extended visit lasting usually 1.5 – 2 hours. In these visits, patients are often watched over by multiple practitioners consulting on the case and are continually monitored in their response to acupuncture and/or Chinese internal medicine formulations. These type of appointments are designed to accommodate more challenging cases. If you know already that you will need this type of appointment, you would book either an Initial Physician Visit $289 (for your first time at YAO) or a Standard Follow Up appointment $129 (for established patients.)
YAO Flash Clinic Visits
These are strictly acupuncture visits and are designed to be utilized with regularity. Flash visits last 45 minutes and are a wonderful way to enter YAO under our Medicine Department umbrella and see if YAO is, indeed, a good fit for you. All visits take place in luxurious private rooms even though Flash visits reflect a Community Style Acupuncture price starting at $60. Flash Clinic offers both a package and membership option to bring that price down even MORE – as low as $45! If your case is more complicated or becomes more complicated, we can streamline you into the Hospital visits by applying your Flash Visit cost to your Initial Physician Visit.
Prenatal Near Term Visit
We often are used as a resource for pregnant Moms looking to accommodate several late-term situations: induction (which is really more preparing the mother’s body to open easily when labor begins), flipping a breach baby with acupuncture, or simply late-term discomfort or other. These are part of our Hospital appointments and can last anywhere from 1.5-2 hours. The cost for these are $129 as we are not doing a full new intake since the appointment is very specified. However, should the Mom want to return and participate in our YAO New Mommies Membership plan we would still need to do a full Initial Physician Visit at a later date.
15 Minute Consults are available for both Established patients receiving Hospital Visits and those coming into Flash Clinic; however, if the Flash patient’s case is more complex, they will be referred to set up an Initial Physician Visit. 30 Minute – 60 Minute Consults are only available for those being seen for Hospital visits.

APPOINTMENTS & CONSULTATIONS
SAVE 10% off this visit if you are already a Bodywork, Beauty, Flash Clinic or New Mommy Member OR are the added family/friend or colleague on an existing member’s account!
Structured as a YAO Chinese Medicine Hospital Visit – this two hour appointment is where our new patients come in to meet with YAO’s Chief Clinician, Daniel Hudson, LAc, for the first time. During this appointment we encourage the patient to bring any other lab work or paperwork that they may have from any other doctor. Additionally, each patient will complete some initial patient paperwork that will help our doctors understand what their personal complaints and challenges are. During the appointment there will be a thorough nutritional consult, more than likely an acupuncture treatment and a plan of action on how to move forward. Each visit is very individual and tailored to the patient. Like an out-patient hospital visit, patients are monitored by more than one physician and are carefully watched over the duration of the visit for their response to acupuncture and sometimes also to Chinese medicinal formulations. Lastly, the patient may need to receive a very carefully constructed Chinese Herbal formula developed in our pharmacy by one of our doctors; however, this doesn’t happen for each person. Follow-ups to this visit can be short 15 minute consults up to a full Standard Physician Visit (see below for descriptions).

This is a one to one and a half hour appointment that includes a checkup and an acupuncture treatment. This type of visit again falls under our YAO Chinese Medicine Hospital category as a response to acupuncture and herbs is monitored over the duration of the visit often with multiple practitioners assessing the patient’s condition.
PRENATAL NEAR TERM VISIT – $140
We often are used as a resource for pregnant Moms looking to accommodate several late term situations: induction (which is really more preparing the mother’s body to open easily when labor begins), flipping a breach baby with acupuncture, or simply late term discomfort or other.

The 15-minute consult is designed for established patients under YAO Hospital visits or Flash Clinic visits. During these appointments, YAO Clinicians check the patient’s pulse and tongue and discuss either the acute condition at hand or progress/symptoms being monitored for chronic conditions or even hormonal cycles etc. Additionally, this consult offers the clinician time to formulate a compound of Chinese Herbs or re-formulate a current compound. (Herbs are charged separately).REQUEST 15 MINUTE PHYSICIAN CONSULT
We offer a variety of lab tests to our patients depending on what is recommended by their YAO Physicians. These tests can range from routine blood work to food sensitivity testing.REQUEST 15 MINUTE PHYSICIAN CONSULT
