Patient Success Story
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.
I suffered long term with frequent migraine headaches before getting treatment at G&L. I was getting them at least twice a week and they were severe. I had tried many other types of treatment and home remedies over the years, but nothing worked.
After seeing Stephanie, I showed significant improvement after just a couple of months, and now after several months of treatment I'm down to 1-2 mild headaches per month. I definitely recommend acupuncture and this clinic specifically because of the experienced and compassionate acupuncturists who really care about their patients.
I started coming to G&L acupuncture in the very beginning of 2018 and it has been nothing short of life-changing. I grew up with a mother as an acupuncturist so it has always been part of my life, even as a child. Since moving to the US, I have spent the past 6 years looking for an amazing acupuncturist and I have finally found that with Lei. He is genuine, calm, and kind. His mere presence is comforting. I have been seeing him for a variety of physical and mental issues and I have experienced great improvements in all of those areas.
As a busy nurse, I always look forward to this hour of weekly self-care and I always leave with a sense of calm and renewal. The front desk is always smiling and welcoming and knew me by name within the first couple of weeks of my coming to the clinic. I have never written a review before but felt compelled to share Lei's amazing gifts. I have recommended this clinic to everyone I know!
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!
