Patient Success Story
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!
I have been a patient here since 2008.
November 2015, I was in a traffic accident, hit from behind and had nerve damage. Acupuncture is a treatment that the state of Oregon covers at the patient's choosing. Dr. Liu and I focused on the car accident damage, suspending my regular treatments for a while until the car accident treatment was complete. The treatments were remarkable and did wonders to heal me. He used acupuncture massage in addition to needles. It's the best recovery treatment I've ever had and I continued the massage after returning to regular treatments.
LAC Danielle and LAC Sarah also do excellent treatments in both acupuncture and massage at the West Linn office. I have had acupuncture in two other states where I've lived and G&L is the best.
They're all really great people and the facility is lovely. I came in skeptical and terrified my 1st visit but now turn to them whenever I need help.
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.
