Annie C.'s Success Story
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.
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.
In 2005, I underwent major back surgery. Afterwards I tried chiropractic care, physical therapy, and massage therapy but none had any last results. I met with a surgeon who told me I was an excellent candidate for a fusion of L4 and L5 discs. I was 50 years old, in excellent physical shape (I have ran 16 marathons) and hoped the surgery would get me back on the road. After the surgery and with one year of recovery my pain level did not improve, instead it got progressively worse. I went back to physical therapy, massage therapy, attended pain clinics and considered injections.
Over the years following the second surgery my pain levels for everyday activities hovered between 6-8 out of 10. I found it difficult to do basic things such as run, bend over to pick something off the floor, put socks on, get out of bed, etc. I resigned myself to a life of constant pain especially after an MRI and my doctors saying the surgery was a "success".
In October (2012), I was given a coupon to try acupuncture. So far, I have gone 12 times and I am ecstatic about the results I have had. I have moved from a pain level of 8 to about a 2, and sometimes no pain at all. This is a miracle to me. I am back running 6-8 miles per day and I am able to do the everyday things without pain. I give G&L Acupuncture my highest recommendations.
They're all really great people and the facility is lovely. I came in skeptical and terrified my 1st visit but now turn to them whenever I need help.
