About Arizona Research Institute

Arizona Research Institute of Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine was founded by Dr. Jing Liu, L.Ac., O.M.D., Ph.D. (China). The institute is located in Scottsdale, Arizona.  Dr. Liu has given lectures in elementary and middle schools as well as for organizations such as the Tourette's Association and the ADD/ADHD Association on Traditional Chinese Medicine. Dr. Liu realized that there are many children that suffer and cannot afford acupuncture treatment and have no insurance coverage. The majority of them are taking Western pharmaceuticals with some effective results, but others continue to suffer. There are also a lot of stroke victims who have been stabilized with Western medicine, however they hit a plateau even when they continue to receive physical therapy and take various forms of medication. Through the years in her practice and researching and working in China, Dr. Liu has successfully treated many children with both Tourette's and ADD/ADHD. She has helped many stroke victims who were on disability to return to work. Dr. Liu has also created a treatment protocol to educate other practitioners to help patients heal. Through the years many practitioners have received training under Dr. Liu in her office. Recently, Dr. Liu made headlines when she helped cure Miss Arizona from Tourette's. In the last few years, Dr. Liu has reached out to others such as Judge Larry King and Dr. Vajay Balan about creating a non-profit to set up many standardized protocols for patients in the United States and educate other practitioners to help these patients to heal.
