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!
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!
[G&L] Acupuncture is a wonderful Wellness Center to get treatment. Before I had arrived to my first treatment I had already heard many positive reviews from my co-workers. They Have a great staff with many acupuncturist and a couple of massage therapist.
I regularly see Stephanie for acupuncture , she has helped me so much with pain and anxiety I had received after and auto-injury. She is always very friendly and knowledgeable. Both Morgan and Alex are really excellent massage therapist. They have a very friendly front end staff as well. I always leave so much better then I came in. I cant recommend enough.
