Anna I.'s Success Story
Kind, attentive staff at both locations. Professional and relaxing environment. Been going to G&L for many, many years! Highly recommend their services.
I came to G&L Acupuncture and Wellness Center 3 years ago. I have an obstructive lung condition called brochiectasis, which became complicated by a bacterial infection. I was initially treated by a pulmonary specialist and an infectious disease specialist. I had surgery resulting in the removal of 25% of my lungs. Afterward, I felt extremely run down and fatigued. None of the traditional medicines worked.
I sought acupuncture treatment in order to rebuild my immune system and alleviate the ongoing fatigue. After receiving regular acupuncture treatments, I now feel much stronger. I am able to do many more activities than I used to, and I rarely get sick.
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!
The minute I walked in the door, feeling defeated, lost and in chronic pain, I was welcomed and cared for instantly. Yoshi is my acupuncturist and is wonderful. She makes me feel very comfortable and is genuinely invested in my care and recovery. I completely trust her and that is everything when seeking medical attention for chronic pain.
I take referrals very seriously and would send my fiends/family to G&L in a heartbeat. Words cannot express my gratitude for Yoshi and the team at G&L.
