I have been seeing Dr. Zhou during the COVID pandemic after I was referred to him by a neurologist. Dr. Zhou and his staff keep the office very clean by having clients sanitize hands before entering his office - the bathroom is also very clean as well. In the treatment rooms, the acupuncture tables also have disposable tissue to prevent contamination. In terms of Dr. Zhou, he is very knowledgeable, and is both a licensed acupuncturist and MD. Unfortunately insurance companies do not recognize his medical degree of MD because he obtained it in China, which is absurd. He definitely has more expertise than just a licensed acupuncturist. In addition to other medical professionals I have seen, Dr. Zhou believes I have a pinched nerve and not a more serious nerve related issue like fibromyalgia, which is encouraging. He is very thorough and takes notes to check in on what kind of pain I have experienced in the past week. He is very conscientious, polite, and professional. If anyone I know seeks acupuncture, I will not hesitate to recommend Dr. Zhou. He also performs acupuncture on pregnant women, which is a plus.

I saw Dr. Zhou in 2018 for a pain in my right temple. Convinced I had some sort of brain tumor after enduring this pain for months along with a handful of panic attacks that led me to ER visits and many scans that came up clear, at least two physicians recommended acupuncture. As I started searching for an acupuncturist, I came across a review of Dr. Zhou's clinic where the patient described something similar to what I was experiencing, so I booked an appointment. This ended being what felt like a life saver. During my first visit, Dr. Zhou began addressing stress points and then addressed the area surrounding my right temple. By the end of the appointment, I was more calm and the pain had subsided for the first time in months. Within the days that followed, my right arm and shoulder were sore, which felt insane, since those areas weren't even touched! I returned for a single follow up visit, where we addressed the right shoulder soreness. It's been two years, and the pain I had has yet to return. Dr. Zhou helped to relieve the pain and identify the source of my issue. I highly recommend this treatment option for pain relief.

Dr. Zhou is amazing! I have had the pleasure of seeing him for several years now and I truly believe his work has helped to heal me. I would recommend him over and over to anyone because he is fantastic and exceptionally talented in his work. It also helps that he is a joy, kind and patient, which ultimately makes the healing process a little easier when working with him. I highly recommend!

After being on medication for nearly a year without results, I came to Dr. Zhou to treat migraine and post-concussion symptoms. Within just a few sessions, I saw improvement for the first time. And now, five months later, I am back to full health. His care and compassion guides his practice, and he goes above and beyond to show it. I recommend him to anyone in the Austin area.

I have been a patient of Dr Zhou's for 20+ years, seeking out his treatment pre-op, post-op, and for everything from allergy to joint issues! As an RN, I really appreciate and seek out the best practitioners I can find. If there is a way to free up my body to do its own healing naturally, that is my preference. I have referred Dr Zhou to many of my friends. Make that first visit and you too will appreciate his excellent care! Your body will thank you.

I saw Dr Zhou for two conditions - plantar fasciitis and bursitis in the hip. Both conditions lasted for about one year. Pain from both conditions gone after treatments with Dr Zhou.

I learned about Dr. Zhou years ago upon visiting Austin, long before moving here. Over the years, he has consistently helped me recover from a wide range of medical conditions. Today, I can say he is one reason I feel good about living in Austin. He is kind, efficient, effective.

Dr. Zhou is compassionate and works miracles! He listens to the patient, evaluates, and comes up with a plan for treatment. I recommend seeing Dr. Zhou for anything from allergies to pain. He is a huge advocate for natural medicine.

Insurance & Pricing

Our clinic participates in most major insurance programs and networks. However, insurance plans vary in coverage so acupuncture is not a guaranteed benefit, even when Dr. Ziyang Zhou is an in-network provider. Please call your insurance company to verify or our office can verify it for you. We are proud to now be covered by Veterans Affairs Patient Centered Community Care (VAPC3). See our "Before Your Visit" page in Patient Information for more information. Currently Medicare covers acupuncture for lower-back pain only when it is performed by medical doctors or in their offices. Licensed acupuncturists are not covered because we’re not in-network with Medicare. Without insurance coverage, we offer a discounted rate of $120 for the first treatment and $100 for each additional treatment. Or we offer a prepaid package of 5 treatments for $90 each for a total of $450 ($70 in savings).
