Dana Kern's Success Story
Fantastic professional office! Have been going for years. Allows me to manage nerve and muscle pain without drugs! Highly recommend Lei and his wife Zheng!
I met Dr. Liu at a health fair at my work site, and he saw me limping and came over to talk to me about my health problem.
For 3 months, I had been experiencing lower back pain, along with numbness and electrical sensations in the back of my leg and knee. I could hardly walk when I got up in the morning, and I couldn't complete all of my job functions. Recreational activities were almost impossible. I was treated by a chiropractor and physical therapist with no success. Dr. Liu thought he might be able to help me with acupuncture.
I was fortunate to receive some immediate results from the treatments. I could sleep on my side and I could walk better. With each visit I gained more ground, and eventually I could perform all of my job functions, take part in recreational activities, go on walks and sleep better.
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 started coming to G&L acupuncture in the very beginning of 2018 and it has been nothing short of life-changing. I grew up with a mother as an acupuncturist so it has always been part of my life, even as a child. Since moving to the US, I have spent the past 6 years looking for an amazing acupuncturist and I have finally found that with Lei. He is genuine, calm, and kind. His mere presence is comforting. I have been seeing him for a variety of physical and mental issues and I have experienced great improvements in all of those areas.
As a busy nurse, I always look forward to this hour of weekly self-care and I always leave with a sense of calm and renewal. The front desk is always smiling and welcoming and knew me by name within the first couple of weeks of my coming to the clinic. I have never written a review before but felt compelled to share Lei's amazing gifts. I have recommended this clinic to everyone I know!
