Gaya Bariao-Arce's Success Story
Dr. Lei Lui and his staff are great. I have been seeing them for over 10 years with back pain and anything else that comes up. They take the time to understand what ails you and apply the appropriate treatment to get you better. I believe in acupuncture and it has helped in the long term. The massage therapists are a great complement to the acupuncture.
Give them a try... destress, exhale, and get yourself better, you'll be glad you did.
Two years ago, I came to G&L Acupuncture because I had symptoms related to menopause including problems sleeping, constipation and hot flashes. I tried talking to my general physician about these issues, but I didn't receive much of a response.
I didn't want to take hormones, so I tried acupuncture. I am now sleeping much better, and the constipation and hot flashes are almost completely gone! Some of my friends get their nails done at the salon to feel better, but I do acupuncture!
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!
I have been a patient here since 2008.
November 2015, I was in a traffic accident, hit from behind and had nerve damage. Acupuncture is a treatment that the state of Oregon covers at the patient's choosing. Dr. Liu and I focused on the car accident damage, suspending my regular treatments for a while until the car accident treatment was complete. The treatments were remarkable and did wonders to heal me. He used acupuncture massage in addition to needles. It's the best recovery treatment I've ever had and I continued the massage after returning to regular treatments.
LAC Danielle and LAC Sarah also do excellent treatments in both acupuncture and massage at the West Linn office. I have had acupuncture in two other states where I've lived and G&L is the best.
