Patient Success Story
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 started seeing Lei Liu for acupuncture for my chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (numbness, tingling, and burning in my fingers and feet following chemo). With just 3 visits so far, I've seen amazing improvement. The burning is gone and my dexterity is almost back to normal!!! This is such a huge relief. I'm so glad I've found something that helps. My oncologist is excited too, and credits the acupuncture with this improvement as this condition can take months to years to improve on its own.
Lei Liu is passionate about education, and always makes sure to address any question I have fully and gently. He's incredibly caring and wants to know the full story behind whatever issue I bring to him so that he can address it from all angles. G&L is his practice, and I'm certain that the rest of the providers in the clinic share these values.
Not only that, G&L is staffed by really nice, caring people who also clearly use critical thinking skills and aim to go the extra mile for their patients.
I had my first ever experience with acupuncture at G&L. It was a genuinely great experience where I felt that I was attended to the highest of standards. My first visit consisted of a solid case history, which followed up with questions to narrow down my acupuncture treatment points.
I am a student in optometry school and deal with a heavy workload that is hard to manage at times, resulting in a lot of stress. Every visit I attend, I leave feeling relaxed and ready to conquer my following week of quizzes and exams. G&L acupunture focused on my stress, and I thank them for helping me.
From the very first time I walked into G&L Acupuncture I was impressed with the warmth and genuine attention from the front desk staff. That introduction set the tone for my great experiences with Lei and Joy as they introduced me to acupuncture for the first time and took excellent care of me. Everyone I have ever met here is absolutely top notch and I feel grateful to have found such a good group of professionals all under one roof. FIVE STARS!!!!!
