John Rhodes's Success Story
G&L Acupuncture has the best staff with the best knowledge. I highly highly recommend G&L Acupuncture, they also have excellent massage therapists.
I started seeing Joy at G&L Acupuncture in December 2018 to help with my carpal tunnel pain until my scheduled appointment with the hand surgeon that was two months away. It took about 3 weeks with 2 sessions a week before I started seeing results and I'm glad I stayed with it. The pain is gone and the numbness is very rare now. I still went and saw the surgeon who was great and he agreed that if it's working I should continue with that and use surgery as a last resort.
I now see Joy once a week for my hands and she has been helping me with allergies, neck and shoulder pain, stress and depression. She is so nice and really listens to me. She incorporates stretching of my arms and fingers and acupressure as well as the needles.
I had never tried acupuncture before and deep down thought it probably wouldn't work. I am a believer now! The front office staff is great and helpful. They remember me by name and always appear happy to see me.
Clean rooms, friendly staff, I highly recommend.
G&L Acupuncture and Wellness is an excellent center to heal the body and mind. With having Multiple Sclerosis, it is a great pain reliever and gave me the ability to be more active than I am and rest better. The staff there is great and very friendly.
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.
