Angela B.'s Success Story
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!

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.
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!
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.
