Yuli Lo's Success Story
I have been going to G&L since 2007 and have been very happy with my acupuncturist and masseuse. Due to work, I moved away for a few years and tried many other acupuncturists, but had never felt confident and/or comfortable with them. When I returned to the Portland area, I returned to G&L and have been referring them to my coworkers and friends.
The reason I like them is because my acupuncturist, Zheng, got her training at the Traditional Medicine school in China, and have tons and years experience in a hospital setting. As a native Taiwanese, that means a lot to me. Also I like how she always pay attention to my wellness and alway shine her warming light on me so I don't get chills during the treatment :)
My masseuse, Morgan, has been wonderful as well. I have very tight shoulders, and she goes in and does whatever it takes to adjust the alignments. Also, the staff are always friendly and helpful. I constantly email them for detail recipes for my insurance purpose. They alway respond promptly and deliver whatever I need. I have been introducing my friends to the clinic and my friends have good things to say about other acupuncturists as well.
As long as I am in the Portland area, I will probably never switch to another clinic. I'd recommend this practice!
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 have been a patient here since 2008.
November 2015, I was in a traffic accident, hit from behind and had nerve damage. Acupuncture is a treatment that the state of Oregon covers at the patient's choosing. Dr. Liu and I focused on the car accident damage, suspending my regular treatments for a while until the car accident treatment was complete. The treatments were remarkable and did wonders to heal me. He used acupuncture massage in addition to needles. It's the best recovery treatment I've ever had and I continued the massage after returning to regular treatments.
LAC Danielle and LAC Sarah also do excellent treatments in both acupuncture and massage at the West Linn office. I have had acupuncture in two other states where I've lived and G&L is the best.
I had been suffering for several years with pain in both knees and given Corticosteroid Injections along with anti-inflammatories & pain medication.
When I went to G&L Acupuncture I could hardly walk. After just the first treatment I got off the table & it felt like a miracle, I was able to walk with little pain. By the second treatment I arrived once again noticing a downhill spiral. After speaking with them and now with a greater understanding how Acupuncture works. I am now into my fourth treatment and feeling better than I have in years. My stress level is lower, I am sleeping better & best of all my knee pain is almost gone.
I admit I was very skeptical about acupuncture but now, I highly recommend G&L Acupuncture and would give them 10 stars.
