Eduardo Saldivar's Success Story
[G&L] Acupuncture is a wonderful Wellness Center to get treatment. Before I had arrived to my first treatment I had already heard many positive reviews from my co-workers. They Have a great staff with many acupuncturist and a couple of massage therapist.
I regularly see Stephanie for acupuncture , she has helped me so much with pain and anxiety I had received after and auto-injury. She is always very friendly and knowledgeable. Both Morgan and Alex are really excellent massage therapist. They have a very friendly front end staff as well. I always leave so much better then I came in. I cant recommend enough.
A number of years ago, I suffered from a severe backache, the result of a compression fracture of the spine. Instead of taking pain pills, I have been treated each week at G&L Acupuncture and Wellness Center. Acupuncture alleviates back pain and also treats the occasional headache or gastric upset.
This wonderful care, along with regular exercise, has enabled me to maintain as active a lifestyle as anyone my age could hope for.
I've been receiving treatment from Zheng Gong for Rheumatoid Arthritis pain for 15+ years. I tried Western Acupuncture treatment prior and had given up on this alternative method as ineffective until I took a chance on Chinese Acupuncture. Through the years this treatment has aided in maintaining natural methods to continue functioning physically.
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.
