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!
It took my doctors four years to diagnose Burning Mouth Syndrome as my chronic pain got worse and worse.
During that time I tried 20 different herbs and prescriptions as my doctors tried to find solutions to the worsening chronic pain. They sent me to 10 "Handling Pain Classes," several pain clinics, two specialists at OHSU, many counselors, and all kinds of resources to try and minimize the pain. As we reached what I felt the end of resources we decided to try acupuncture which had been recommended by doctors over the years but we had delayed because insurance did not cover it.
I went from a 8 or 9 on the pain scale all day every day to a 1 or 2. Every week the acupuncture reduced the pain. I was amazed, and every week the pain lessened. Lei Liu and his staff have made a tremendous improvement in my pain, stress, and anxiety. I highly recommend acupuncture, Lei Liu, and his clinic to anyone looking for help and relief.
Medicines and procedures I've tried prior to acupuncture:
- Vitamin B Complex
- Allergy test, blood work
- Biopsy of mouth
- Protopic Ointment
- Gabapentin (tried twice)
- Doxepin cream
- Tacrolimus ointment
- Ketoconazole cream
I just wanted to thank Dr. Liu for relieving my back pain. I had suffered for years, but was in a lot of pain after a fall last summer. Physical therapy and pain killers were not working. Finally, one doctor recommended acupuncture and Chinese massage [therapy]. I was skeptical but thought it wouldn't hurt to try.
It was like a miracle! I cannot believe the difference, and the pain has never come back. The best thing is my improved quality of life. Constant and chronic pain drains your energy. Thank you Dr. Liu!
Was a wonderfully relaxing experience.
