Lei Liu, LAc
Lei Liu is an acupuncturist and graduated in 1987 from the Shan Xi College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in China. Afterwards, he worked in a 500 bed traditional Chinese medicine hospital as a faculty practitioner before moving to the United States. In the United States, Lei has been practicing for over 20 years, including 6 years as a Clinic Supervisor at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in Portland, OR.
He is currently a licensed acupuncturist in the state of Oregon, a Master Chinese Herbalist, and has extensive experience treating many different conditions with great success. He specializes in acute and chronic pain relief and treating and rehabilitating car accident injuries. His many devoted patients that have been with him for the last 5, 10, or 15 years are testaments to his skill and compassion.
When not treating patients Lei truly enjoys playing with his grandson, tending to his flourishing gardening, and cheering on his favorite basketball team the Portland Trailblazers! Ask him about any of those things and he will be more than happy to share.
From Lei's Patients:
I like this clinic, and staff. Great service, easy to reach, nice organized practice. Lei Liu one of the best practitioner I've met. Very knowledgeable, good listener, and has great manual skills. I feel improvement from the first visit!!!
I'm truly grateful to have the pleasure and opportunity to be his patient. Thanks again!!
I was very worried and a bit skeptical about acupuncture before going to G&L after a few other experiences. However, I gave them a try and am very pleased with the results and they have opened my mind to acupuncture.
First of all, the office is very clean and professional, which is a big thing for me, especially if getting acupuncture or any procedure done. The staff is also very professional, energetic, and positive - they take the effort to know your name, greet you, and make you feel welcome.
Most impressive is Liu and his staff. They took the time to understand my hesitation with acupuncture, the problems I'm having, and make sure that I was comfortable with the treatment. They even have buzzers to call them if I was at all uneasy during the treatment.
I also was treated by another doctor who covered while Dr Liu was out and the same very high bar was maintained. Thus far, a 4-5 month recovery, as told to me by my PCP, is trending to 1 month after seeing G&L.
Overall, this is an amazing business and I'd recommend it to anyone who has done acupuncture before or is considering it for the first time.
Lei is a phenomenal acupuncturist. I went in for issues with chronic jaw and sinus pain in addition to headaches and anxiety. I felt that he really listened to my concerns and came up with a solid plan to address them. I had never had acupuncture, so I didn’t know what to expect.
I felt very comfortable and for the first time, hopeful. Five treatments in, and my pain is subsiding and is very manageable at this time. My anxiety has lessened in that I am better able to handle daily life stressors. I can’t wait to see what continued treatments will do. I definitely plan to make acupuncture part of my regular self care routine.
I met Lei Liu last June in 2021 after my sister had been discharged from the hospital for a brain surgery. My sister was on tube feeding and in wheelchair.
Lei Liu is a very thoughtful and considerate doctor. He had confidence that he could improve my sister's situation. It was very comforting for both me and my sister. After 6 months of treatment, my sister can swallow food, and walk with walker.
I recommended a friend to see Lei Liu and she is also satisfied with the result. I highly recommend Lei Liu.
I recently had hernia surgery followed by urinary retention complications for the next 4 weeks and had to use a catheter to pee. It was suggested by my doctor that I take Flomax for my issue (no thanks). I went to see Lei and 2 days after my first treatment I was able to go on my own. G&L is a life saver!
