Dr. Yvonne Huang
Dr. Yvonne Y. Huang has over 10 years in the physical therapy industry. She began to pursue her health and wellness career after she moved to the United States due to her injuries from long years of professional dance training in Taiwan.
She pursued her doctorate and now has her Doctor of Physical Therapist degree from the University of St. Augustine, San Marcos, CA. She has a passion for women’s health and pelvic floor work and loves to continue her learning in this area.
Throughout her education and professional development, Dr. Huang was one of Dr. Justin Lin's most eager and promising students. She has studied and perfected his Neuromechanical Therapy techniques and treatment models. Treating chronic pain is one of the most difficult tasks a physical therapist can be asked to take on and Dr. Huang jumped at the opportunity to pursue working with the chronic pain community that usually patrons Rehab and Revive PT.

She has worked mainly in an outpatient clinic, where she received orthopedic and neurologic training and developed some of her manual therapy techniques. She is dedicated in the pursuit of life-long learning through constant continuing education in all fields of chronic pain.

She completed an extensive online learning course and intensive hands-on training course through the Norton School of Lymphedema, and becomes a certified lymphedema therapist (CLT).
She is now also assisting the Norton School lymphedema courses by teaching and sharing her experience to future lymphedema therapists. She is also a Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner (CKTP) through the Kinesio Taping Association (KTA).

I had never had a lymph massage before and was skeptical if it would work. I have always had swelling in my ankles and knees due to scar tissue. After three sessions, the swelling was gone and has not returned.
After each session, I did feel nauseous for a few hours but felt better the next day. Some people have this reaction due to toxins being released. My swelling has not returned and I no longer feel puffy in my feet and legs.
It is very hard to describe what a lymphatic drainage massage is, but I can easily attest to its effectiveness. I've gone to Yvonne several times for lymph massages, and each time, I fall asleep during the massage because it is so relaxing, but then I also feel all the toxins getting drained and released throughout my body. I typically feel revived with new energy within 24 hours. The end result is similar to getting a deep tissue massage - without any pain or discomfort...
Since I also suffer from a chronic, incurable illness, I schedule lymphatic drainage massages with Yvonne every few months. Her bedside manner is professional, yet friendly. Don't be fooled by her quiet demeanor - she really knows her science and is quite the expert in her field! I plan on being a patient for many years.
