Karen M.'s Success Story
I have had a great experience at G&L Acupuncture. Have been going for several weeks now and am getting relief from my symptoms for the first time in years!
Dr. Lei Liu and the whole staff are wonderful. Very welcoming and made me feel really comfortable with the whole process since I was new to acupuncture. I love that they offer all the services you need in one place. My massage therapists have been amazing!

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.
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 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!
