Beverly M.'s Success Story
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.
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.
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!
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.
Dr. Lei Lui and his staff are great. I have been seeing them for over 10 years with back pain and anything else that comes up. They take the time to understand what ails you and apply the appropriate treatment to get you better. I believe in acupuncture and it has helped in the long term. The massage therapists are a great complement to the acupuncture.
Give them a try... destress, exhale, and get yourself better, you'll be glad you did.
