I sought treatment for neck nerve pain and numbness in my left arm, and went to see a neurologist at the hospital. The doctor said I needed an MRI, so I had it done. Afterwards, the doctor said I also needed to have an X-ray. After undergoing the MRI and X-ray, the doctor told me that my neck required surgery and mentioned that the procedure would be quick, allowing me to go home after two hours. However, the surgery would involve placing six screws in my neck, which would limit my future neck mobility. While it could prevent arm numbness, occasional neck pain might still persist, according to the doctor.

I hesitated for a long time and decided to look for other treatment methods, as I was unwilling to undergo such surgery. So, I searched on Google for traditional Chinese medicine treatments, hoping to find non-surgical treatments through herbal medicine or acupuncture. Among many acupuncture clinics, I chose one named G&L Acupuncture, a three-and-a-half-hour drive from where I live. I chose this distant clinic because I saw a doctor named Lei Liu on the list of physicians there, who had very high online ratings and many positive reviews, which attracted me. After discussing with my husband, we decided to give Lei Liu a try.

The first time I met Lei Liu, he struck me as kind, sincere, and straightforward. Since my husband is American and was skeptical about the efficacy of acupuncture, Lei Liu suggested starting with four treatments and then deciding whether to continue. So, I began acupuncture treatments with Lei Liu. Considering our long journey, Lei Liu took great care of us, ensuring we received treatment immediately upon arrival. Sometimes we would arrive an hour early, but never had to wait, which was very comforting.

After four treatments, the pain in my neck significantly reduced. As a result, my husband also began to receive acupuncture treatments. After four trial treatments, considering the long journey my husband and I had to make each time, Dr. Liu proactively suggested reducing our visits from twice a week to once a week. After 11 acupuncture sessions, my neck condition was completely recovered. Additionally, chronic issues like back and waist pain also improved, which was amazing!

Although each round trip for the acupuncture takes about 7 hours, I feel it is very worthwhile. After each treatment, my body felt very relaxed and comfortable. I am very grateful to Lei Liu, he is truly a kind, gentle, and knowledgeable acupuncture expert.
