Mathilde Christophersen's Success Story
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!
I had been suffering for several years with pain in both knees and given Corticosteroid Injections along with anti-inflammatories & pain medication.
When I went to G&L Acupuncture I could hardly walk. After just the first treatment I got off the table & it felt like a miracle, I was able to walk with little pain. By the second treatment I arrived once again noticing a downhill spiral. After speaking with them and now with a greater understanding how Acupuncture works. I am now into my fourth treatment and feeling better than I have in years. My stress level is lower, I am sleeping better & best of all my knee pain is almost gone.
I admit I was very skeptical about acupuncture but now, I highly recommend G&L Acupuncture and would give them 10 stars.
In 2005, I underwent major back surgery. Afterwards I tried chiropractic care, physical therapy, and massage therapy but none had any last results. I met with a surgeon who told me I was an excellent candidate for a fusion of L4 and L5 discs. I was 50 years old, in excellent physical shape (I have ran 16 marathons) and hoped the surgery would get me back on the road. After the surgery and with one year of recovery my pain level did not improve, instead it got progressively worse. I went back to physical therapy, massage therapy, attended pain clinics and considered injections.
Over the years following the second surgery my pain levels for everyday activities hovered between 6-8 out of 10. I found it difficult to do basic things such as run, bend over to pick something off the floor, put socks on, get out of bed, etc. I resigned myself to a life of constant pain especially after an MRI and my doctors saying the surgery was a "success".
In October (2012), I was given a coupon to try acupuncture. So far, I have gone 12 times and I am ecstatic about the results I have had. I have moved from a pain level of 8 to about a 2, and sometimes no pain at all. This is a miracle to me. I am back running 6-8 miles per day and I am able to do the everyday things without pain. I give G&L Acupuncture my highest recommendations.
Results oriented acupuncture & massage clinic. Amazing customer service & billing to insurance provided complimentary. Always flexible with schedules too. Would highly recommend this clinic.
