Review by Annie C. on Yelp

I started seeing Lei Liu for acupuncture for my chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (numbness, tingling, and burning in my fingers and feet following chemo). With just 3 visits so far, I've seen amazing improvement. The burning is gone and my dexterity is almost back to normal!!! This is such a huge relief. I'm so glad I've found something that helps. My oncologist is excited too, and credits the acupuncture with this improvement as this condition can take months to years to improve on its own.

Lei Liu is passionate about education, and always makes sure to address any question I have fully and gently. He's incredibly caring and wants to know the full story behind whatever issue I bring to him so that he can address it from all angles. G&L is his practice, and I'm certain that the rest of the providers in the clinic share these values.

Not only that, G&L is staffed by really nice, caring people who also clearly use critical thinking skills and aim to go the extra mile for their patients.

I have been seeing Zheng for several months now. She has helped me tremendously with my sleep problems and stress issues. I now sleep soundly and have set up a wellness plan to maintain better health. The front desk staff and Ashley are all very helpful. I highly recommend G&L. Thank you for all for the help you have been in bringing my life back into balance.

Review by Ray Bennett on Google

I have been working with G&L Acupuncture and Lei Lui at the Beaverton office for acute anxiety from chronic stress for the past 5 weeks. The experience has been amazing. Lei was recommended by my Psychologist who said she trusted him Implicitly. At this point I do as well. He has a great demeanor and is caring and concerned and varies the treatment to match my symptoms.

The treatments worked immediately to reduce my stress and anxiety. Now, I look forward to each session and come out entirely relaxed. A big differentiator at G&L is the people. I was assigned a case manager (Ashley) who takes time to discuss my situation and my progress before each session. This is a one stop shop for emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical wellness. Very highly recommended.

Marjorie's Review of G&L Acupuncture and Wellness Center

A number of years ago, I suffered from a severe backache, the result of a compression fracture of the spine. Instead of taking pain pills, I have been treated each week at G&L Acupuncture and Wellness Center. Acupuncture alleviates back pain and also treats the occasional headache or gastric upset.

This wonderful care, along with regular exercise, has enabled me to maintain as active a lifestyle as anyone my age could hope for.

Treating the Lingering Effects of Bell's Palsy

Over the past 14 months, I have had Bell's Palsy four times. I felt disabled, stressed, scared, and hopeless. I tried the medical model with medications, therapy, and a home stimulation unit. Each bout of Bell's Palsy became worse and the recovery period increased.

In November 2016, my fourth bout should have resolved after 2 months, but I remained with numbness at the left side of my face and mouth. My left eye was affected, too. My face was distorted, I had difficulty speaking and eating, and I could not play my flute in my church orchestra.

Gloria Lindell, January 26, 2017

I came to G&L Acupuncture and Wellness Center in November 2016 desperate and requesting help. My MD had told me that I would have permanent complications and to live with it. But I knew that my stress level was not manageable and because of it my immune system was compromised. I was willing to make the commitment to acupuncture.

My acupuncturist, Pam Lovall, and the staff were so receptive to me. I received education, support, and encouragement which was so instrumental in my recovery. With each visit, my acupuncturist assessed my progress and concerns.

I am so glad to report that my Bell's Palsy has resolved without complications. My life changed because of G&L Acupuncture and Wellness Center. I am much more balanced, healthy, and happy. I am now on my maintenance treatment plan to keep my life this way. Acupuncture is vital to my life! I extend my deepest gratitude to my acupuncturist and the staff who made my life so beautiful!

Chronic Pain Due to Burning Mouth Syndrome

It took my doctors four years to diagnose Burning Mouth Syndrome as my chronic pain got worse and worse.

During that time I tried 20 different herbs and prescriptions as my doctors tried to find solutions to the worsening chronic pain. They sent me to 10 "Handling Pain Classes," several pain clinics, two specialists at OHSU, many counselors, and all kinds of resources to try and minimize the pain. As we reached what I felt the end of resources we decided to try acupuncture which had been recommended by doctors over the years but we had delayed because insurance did not cover it.

I went from a 8 or 9 on the pain scale all day every day to a 1 or 2. Every week the acupuncture reduced the pain. I was amazed, and every week the pain lessened. Lei Liu and his staff have made a tremendous improvement in my pain, stress, and anxiety. I highly recommend acupuncture, Lei Liu, and his clinic to anyone looking for help and relief.

Medicines and procedures I've tried prior to acupuncture:

  • Vitamin B Complex
  • Allergy test, blood work
  • Biopsy of mouth
  • Fluconazole
  • Protopic Ointment
  • Gabapentin (tried twice)
  • Doxepin cream
  • Tacrolimus ointment
  • Mometasone
  • Ativan
  • Lyrica
  • Prednisone
  • Ketoconazole cream
  • Topiramate
  • Clonazepam
  • Duloxetine
  • Carbamazepine
  • Buspar

Review by Kristin B. on Yelp

Excellent acupuncture and very attentive to health care. It was very relaxing and easier than other acupuncture places to schedule and receive massage as well.

Review by Michael P. on Google

I have been going to G&L for both acupuncture and massage to help with back pain and sciatica from a herniated disc for a few months now. I am feeling more relief than I've felt in nearly a year of physical therapy.

The office staff and practitioners are warm and welcoming and really take the time to learn about your unique condition and what you feel you need. The office atmosphere is calming, healing, and friendly. Personally, I really enjoy the relaxing music they play during treatment.

I definitely recommend G&L for anyone looking for a holistic healing experience!

Review by Maggie C. on Yelp

I have stenosis in cervical and lumbar and after spine surgery I was still in pain. I found this place and walked in and wanted to give it a try. I am so glad I did. Staff is wonderful and so knowledgeable and they really explained all about accupunture. I started to feel better soon after my 1st treatment. I am now able to work and function my life much easier.

I have cut back on medication and finally feel hopeful. I really recommend this place to give it a try. You won't be sorry. I have recommended this clinic to many friends, family and coworkers.

Review by Shirley Y. on Yelp

This is definitely a hidden gem in Beaverton, OR. We have been receiving treatment from Dr. Lei Liu for a few years. My son has been suffering from migraine headaches since he was 10 years old, when he turned 13, he started to get more frequent headaches (every 7 to 10 days). It's heart-breaking as a parent to see such a young kid starting to take pain killers so frequently, so we started to look for other options.

Lei Liu is ever so patient and caring, my son totally trust him since day one. After a few months of treatment, his headache has been under control. He only has to have maintenance treatment every 6 weeks now, and only comes down with less than a couple of headaches per year. We cannot thank the team enough, they are courteous, polite, flexible, and professional. If you are looking for a caring team who puts your health first, I will definitely recommend G&L in a heart beat!

Review by Susan P. on Yelp

I'm so glad I found this clinic through newspaper. Everyone at the clinic are very friendly and professional.

Recently I have been experiencing neck and shoulder pain, so I searched online and read through newspapers to look for a good Acupuncturist and possible with Massage therapy as well. Now I found it and give them two thumbs up.

Just after the first acupuncture treatment, my neck pain is gone. Since the massage therapy was booked out, they arranged one for me when there were someone dropped the appointment. I really appreciated. The massage therapist is so great, I can immediately feel the relief from the tight tendon after she worked the on my shoulders.

Now I have visited them 4 times to further improve the healing effect. I'll keep seeing them to get my body totally back on track.

Thank you all so much for all your help!

Review by Mary H. on Yelp

I have been with Lei Liu for over 10 years. When I first came to him, I had asthma, reflux, frequent infections and high levels of stress.

I am now healthier than I have ever been and I am turning 60 this year! He is a compassionate man who truly listens to you. Lei is also an excellent herbalist and provides herbs that are tailored to your specific needs. You cannot go wrong with giving him a chance to help you too

Review by Lisa D. on Yelp

I've been receiving treatment from Zheng Gong for Rheumatoid Arthritis pain for 15+ years. I tried Western Acupuncture treatment prior and had given up on this alternative method as ineffective until I took a chance on Chinese Acupuncture. Through the years this treatment has aided in maintaining natural methods to continue functioning physically.

Review by Lari S. on Yelp

I cannot say enough good things about G&L Acupuncture and Wellness Center! I am a cancer patient, who recently went through chemotherapy and surgery as traditional Western medicine dictated. All through the chemotherapy, the acupuncture helped me with both nausea, diarrhea and pain, which allowed me to eat, and reduce the amount of pain medication that I required. My incision had not healed after 7 and 1/2 months. Lei Liu used acupuncture on this location. My incision was completely healed within 2 days!!

Wherever I experience pain, Lei Liu is able to find the source as if he has magic hands. He applies needles and the pain goes away like a miracle. He is now working on removing neuropathy from my feet. Neuropathy is nerve pain that sometimes results after chemotherapy. I had a double-whammy, because I am diabetic. Lei has been able to address this issue for me (I have been a long time sufferer from this nerve damage). It's really helping to relieve the feeling that my feet are on fire, with electrical shocks running through them.

I feel so fortunate to have met Lei Liu and his staff at G&L Acupuncture. They are all professional, kind and compassionate to their patients. I highly recommend going to this clinic if you are suffering from a long-term issue, or a recent one. Lei is there to work with you, support you and bring you back to health.

G&L also offers massage if you request it. Their masseuses are kind and professional and LISTEN to what you need. It's a great staff and a great place for healing. I highly recommend it!

Review by Ron S. on Yelp

My doctor's name was Zheng Gong. My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for two years via traditional medicine, hormones, and other procedures. Nothing was working for us. In our last visit concerning the matter with our physician, we were told that our only option was in vitro fertilization.

After extensive research on the internet, I discovered that acupuncture could be an option. I then made an appointment to see Zheng Gong. That was 2 1/2 months ago. I was immediately put at ease, and not only felt comfortable with the treatment, but trusted Dr. Gong. She has very positive energy that inspired me a nd gave me hope.

I am happy to say that all of my hopes and trust have resulted in the miracle of pregnancy. I believe that God gave me wisdom and guidance to choose G&L Acupuncture, and specifically Dr. Zheng Gong. Thank you for your amazing service! I will definately recommend this clinic!

Review by Angela B. on Yelp

Fantastic, amazing, G&L is a godsend!! Acupuncturist Noura is warm, sincere, and very knowledgeable. She has earned my full and complete trust in just two visits. Massage therapist Aaron is also top-notch and not only has strong, intuitive hands and a soothing voice, but also a thorough understanding of human anatomy.

The relaxation and calm that their acupuncture/massage combo brings me lasts for days. Even the office staff are exceptional at G&L. Friendly and engaging, one of them offered me a granola bar before my appointment when I told her I hadn't eaten. If I could add another star, I would!

Review by Beverly M. on Yelp

Really knowlegeable practicioners. My right arm has been hurting for 3 years and I've tried everything from physical therapy to weekly Thai massages to other acupunture centers and separate from getting steriod shots or taking pain killers.

Nora and my massage expert Lisa really do the trick! I plan on doing the bi-weekly treatment plan till my arm is 100% and then maybe reduce to weekly for maintainence. They even do facial acupunture (heard it's like a face lift) so I might try that someday. But I would recommend this place.

Chronic Pain From Old Car Accident Injury

Ten years ago, I was in a car accident and suffered pain from whiplash. I used pain medications and physical therapy to recover from my injuries but had no success. A friend suggested acupuncture and to my amazement it worked! I went from being incapacitated and depressed to feeling alive and well. As time went on, I learned that acupuncture provided successful treatment for my anxiety, insomnia, indigestion, heartburn and chronic back pain.

I am relieved there is an alternative to drugs to treat conditions that cause severe discomfort and pain. Dr. Liu always listens carefully to my concerns, and I feel that he is dedicated to my health and well being. His staff is friendly, professional and they do a great job coordinating services with your provider. I am grateful I took the risk of trying something new.

I can honestly say that at 60 years of age my quality of life has been enhanced because of acupuncture. I am active, pain free, and able to enjoy life!

When Everything Else Didn't Work

I was in a car accident 4 years ago and have been suffering from neck, arm, and shoulder pain ever since. I have been in a tremendous amount of pain. My primary care physician prescribed me pain medications like oxycodone and naproxen to cope with the pain, but even then I have not been sleeping well. I went to see a physical therapist but it only helped some. I have also tried a chiropractor but after a few treatments I started experiencing numbness in my fingers after adjustments.

Even though I am not a needle person I decided to give acupuncture a try, because I just wanted to feel better. Since starting treatments I have improved greatly. I have less pain and stiffness in my neck, arm, and shoulders to the point that I am coming off my pain medications and have been able to sleep through the night. As a bonus, acupuncture has also helped with the numbness in my fingers. Overall, I am feeling more energetic, less depressed, and have my spirits up high.

Minor Car Accidents Can Hurt Too

Last November (2015) I was rear ended by another vehicle and suffered from very bad headaches, pain in my neck, shoulder, and back, and felt very mentally foggy.

I went to see a chiropractor, but it was only after getting acupuncture treatments that I started feeling much better. My headaches improved by 70%, my neck, shoulder, and back pain reduced by 50%, and my head feels a lot more clear. Because of all this, I also feel much less stressed and happier in general.

Pain Spinal Injury From Head on Collision

A few months ago (2015) I was in a head on collision that was severe enough to send me to the ER twice, as well as having to take a lot of time off work because I could not walk. I suffered from spinal injuries and tried various forms of treatments but was not getting the results I desired. There was slow progress at the beginning, but then fell back again into the same pain and sometimes even worse pain.

The results I have had here at G&L Acupuncture and Wellness Center are short of a miracle pill. I have been coming for a couple of weeks and already I have noticed a decrease in pain, increased range of motion, and overall better mood. The service is amazing and the staff is caring and supportive. I can honestly say for my first time trying acupuncture, this place has set a high standard of excellence for a wellness center.

Bad Pain After L4-L5 Disc Fusion Operation

In 2005, I underwent major back surgery. Afterwards I tried chiropractic care, physical therapy, and massage therapy but none had any last results. I met with a surgeon who told me I was an excellent candidate for a fusion of L4 and L5 discs. I was 50 years old, in excellent physical shape (I have ran 16 marathons) and hoped the surgery would get me back on the road. After the surgery and with one year of recovery my pain level did not improve, instead it got progressively worse. I went back to physical therapy, massage therapy, attended pain clinics and considered injections.

Over the years following the second surgery my pain levels for everyday activities hovered between 6-8 out of 10. I found it difficult to do basic things such as run, bend over to pick something off the floor, put socks on, get out of bed, etc. I resigned myself to a life of constant pain especially after an MRI and my doctors saying the surgery was a "success".

In October (2012), I was given a coupon to try acupuncture. So far, I have gone 12 times and I am ecstatic about the results I have had. I have moved from a pain level of 8 to about a 2, and sometimes no pain at all. This is a miracle to me. I am back running 6-8 miles per day and I am able to do the everyday things without pain. I give G&L Acupuncture my highest recommendations.

Barely Walking, Months of Pain and Discomfort, Gone

I met Dr. Liu at a health fair at my work site, and he saw me limping and came over to talk to me about my health problem.

For 3 months, I had been experiencing lower back pain, along with numbness and electrical sensations in the back of my leg and knee. I could hardly walk when I got up in the morning, and I couldn't complete all of my job functions. Recreational activities were almost impossible. I was treated by a chiropractor and physical therapist with no success. Dr. Liu thought he might be able to help me with acupuncture.

I was fortunate to receive some immediate results from the treatments. I could sleep on my side and I could walk better. With each visit I gained more ground, and eventually I could perform all of my job functions, take part in recreational activities, go on walks and sleep better.

When Physical Therapy and Pain Killers Are Not Enough

I just wanted to thank Dr. Liu for relieving my back pain. I had suffered for years, but was in a lot of pain after a fall last summer. Physical therapy and pain killers were not working. Finally, one doctor recommended acupuncture and Chinese massage [therapy]. I was skeptical but thought it wouldn't hurt to try.

It was like a miracle! I cannot believe the difference, and the pain has never come back. The best thing is my improved quality of life. Constant and chronic pain drains your energy. Thank you Dr. Liu!

If 5 Different Allergy Medications Can't Help, What Can?

I suffered from severe asthma due to allergies for at least 2 months. The asthma was causing an awful cough which was making me lose sleep. I was spending over $200 a month on 5 different allergy medications and I was still suffering. I was at my breaking point because I was completely exhausted physically, mentally, and emotionally. Perhaps related, I was also in constant pain at the time with headaches and joint pain, especially in my knees.

Since starting treatments, I have had amazing results. My allergies and asthma improved each visit, and I saw an improvement in my energy levels within 2 weeks. After 2 months of treatments I am only on one allergy medication, I don't have headaches or join pain anymore, and I am sleeping a lot better. I am very happy to have my quality of life back!

Supportive Therapy After Cancer Surgery

I started coming to G&L Acupuncture and Wellness Center in April, 2010. I had surgery for cancer and sought acupuncture treatment to support my immune system. I had also suffered personal loss in my life and wanted to address grief and emotional stress.

I feel much healthier now and have a lot more energy. I also feel less sad and anxious. And, as an unexpected and pleasant bonus, I've lost 20 pounds since I started treatment!

Post Surgery Acupuncture Treatments Can Increase Energy

I came to G&L Acupuncture and Wellness Center 3 years ago. I have an obstructive lung condition called brochiectasis, which became complicated by a bacterial infection. I was initially treated by a pulmonary specialist and an infectious disease specialist. I had surgery resulting in the removal of 25% of my lungs. Afterward, I felt extremely run down and fatigued. None of the traditional medicines worked.

I sought acupuncture treatment in order to rebuild my immune system and alleviate the ongoing fatigue. After receiving regular acupuncture treatments, I now feel much stronger. I am able to do many more activities than I used to, and I rarely get sick.

Natural Treatments for Menopause Symptoms

Two years ago, I came to G&L Acupuncture because I had symptoms related to menopause including problems sleeping, constipation and hot flashes. I tried talking to my general physician about these issues, but I didn't receive much of a response.

I didn't want to take hormones, so I tried acupuncture. I am now sleeping much better, and the constipation and hot flashes are almost completely gone! Some of my friends get their nails done at the salon to feel better, but I do acupuncture!

Nauseated and Vomiting For 6 Weeks

I was nauseated and it had been going on for 6 weeks. It was debilitating to the point where all I did was lie in the fetal position and I didn't eat or drink anything for days at a time because I feared being more nauseated and vomiting. I went to my doctor and a gastroenterologist specialist and both gave me very inconclusive answers and told me to take a handful of pills, none of which helped.

After only 2 acupuncture treatments the nausea was gone and by the end of the 5th treatment I was back to myself 100%. No nausea, no fatigue, and I was able to keep food and water down. I looked forwarded to each and every appointment. Modern medicine told me to deal with the discomfort and take medication, but G&L Acupuncture and Wellness Center was able to treat the nausea and make it stay away.

Try Acupuncture Before Other Intensive Treatments

I had tingling and numbness in my hands, fingers and arms that had been worsening over the previous year. Eventually, my hands felt like they were constantly "asleep," and I was kept awake at night with radiating pain up both arms. I knew I needed to see a physician, but I dreaded the thought of surgery. Instead, I wanted to try acupuncture.

After two months of acupuncture treatment, the pain is gone completely, and the tingling and numbness only occurs when I hold my hands and arms in a position that restricts blood circulation. I am so appreciative to G&L for the acupuncture - my hands and arms are in the best condition!
