Jilla Piroozmandi's Success Story
I have been treated by Sarah Wickstrom since August 2017. I had a stroke in December 2016 and Sara saved me from my left (weak side) hip pain. My doctors say that the weakness due to stroke caused my arthritis to flame up, but Sarah helped me and the pain is gone. The lucky thing is that the Care Oregon insurance does not have any limits on acupuncture and you miss the wonderful result of these treatments if you don't take advantage of it. G&L acupuncture is authorized to take Care Oregon patients.
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 started having migraines/tension headache and since I never experience one before, I relied on medications to relieve the symptoms for weeks. After medications were not effective (started having rebound headaches on medication), my husband recommended acupuncture. I was primarily treated bu Dr. Lei Liu and he's fantastic. On my first appointment with him, he confidently assured me that I will be migraine free after several weeks. The needles did not hurt at all and there is a warming lamp and relaxing music to soothe.
For my headache treatments, he placed the needles in both foot, ankles, legs, arms, one between the eyes and head (of course!). I started out with acupuncture twice a week and now that the migraines are resolved, I go twice a month and will eventually wean off slowly since I want to monitor for rebound. So far, I do not have the horrific migraines, only headaches that are tolerable. The front staff is very friendly and everyone is sincere, office functions efficiently. I am a believer in acupuncture!
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.
