These are just some of the success stories from our patients submitted to us on the internet or in writing. We are blessed to have the opportunity to help so many people in so many ways.
A few months ago (2015) I was in a head on collision that was severe enough to send me to the ER twice, as well as having to take a lot of time off work because I could not walk. I suffered from spinal injuries and tried various forms of treatments but was not getting the results I desired. There was slow progress at the beginning, but then fell back again into the same pain and sometimes even worse pain.
The results I have had here at G&L Acupuncture and Wellness Center are short of a miracle pill. I have been coming for a couple of weeks and already I have noticed a decrease in pain, increased range of motion, and overall better mood. The service is amazing and the staff is caring and supportive. I can honestly say for my first time trying acupuncture, this place has set a high standard of excellence for a wellness center.
My doctor's name was Zheng Gong. My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for two years via traditional medicine, hormones, and other procedures. Nothing was working for us. In our last visit concerning the matter with our physician, we were told that our only option was in vitro fertilization.
After extensive research on the internet, I discovered that acupuncture could be an option. I then made an appointment to see Zheng Gong. That was 2 1/2 months ago. I was immediately put at ease, and not only felt comfortable with the treatment, but trusted Dr. Gong. She has very positive energy that inspired me a nd gave me hope.
I am happy to say that all of my hopes and trust have resulted in the miracle of pregnancy. I believe that God gave me wisdom and guidance to choose G&L Acupuncture, and specifically Dr. Zheng Gong. Thank you for your amazing service! I will definately recommend this clinic!
I suffered from severe asthma due to allergies for at least 2 months. The asthma was causing an awful cough which was making me lose sleep. I was spending over $200 a month on 5 different allergy medications and I was still suffering. I was at my breaking point because I was completely exhausted physically, mentally, and emotionally. Perhaps related, I was also in constant pain at the time with headaches and joint pain, especially in my knees.
Since starting treatments, I have had amazing results. My allergies and asthma improved each visit, and I saw an improvement in my energy levels within 2 weeks. After 2 months of treatments I am only on one allergy medication, I don't have headaches or join pain anymore, and I am sleeping a lot better. I am very happy to have my quality of life back!
Professional, courteous staff. Relaxing, meditative atmosphere and always on time schedule. Healing, therapeutic, absolutely amazing acupuncturists and massage therapists. G&L has taken my pain and given me back my smile... Thank you so much.
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.
Fantastic, amazing, G&L is a godsend!! Acupuncturist Noura is warm, sincere, and very knowledgeable. She has earned my full and complete trust in just two visits. Massage therapist Aaron is also top-notch and not only has strong, intuitive hands and a soothing voice, but also a thorough understanding of human anatomy.
The relaxation and calm that their acupuncture/massage combo brings me lasts for days. Even the office staff are exceptional at G&L. Friendly and engaging, one of them offered me a granola bar before my appointment when I told her I hadn't eaten. If I could add another star, I would!
Really knowlegeable practicioners. My right arm has been hurting for 3 years and I've tried everything from physical therapy to weekly Thai massages to other acupunture centers and separate from getting steriod shots or taking pain killers.
Nora and my massage expert Lisa really do the trick! I plan on doing the bi-weekly treatment plan till my arm is 100% and then maybe reduce to weekly for maintainence. They even do facial acupunture (heard it's like a face lift) so I might try that someday. But I would recommend this place.
I just wanted to thank Dr. Liu for relieving my back pain. I had suffered for years, but was in a lot of pain after a fall last summer. Physical therapy and pain killers were not working. Finally, one doctor recommended acupuncture and Chinese massage [therapy]. I was skeptical but thought it wouldn't hurt to try.
It was like a miracle! I cannot believe the difference, and the pain has never come back. The best thing is my improved quality of life. Constant and chronic pain drains your energy. Thank you Dr. Liu!
I was in a car accident 4 years ago and have been suffering from neck, arm, and shoulder pain ever since. I have been in a tremendous amount of pain. My primary care physician prescribed me pain medications like oxycodone and naproxen to cope with the pain, but even then I have not been sleeping well. I went to see a physical therapist but it only helped some. I have also tried a chiropractor but after a few treatments I started experiencing numbness in my fingers after adjustments.
Even though I am not a needle person I decided to give acupuncture a try, because I just wanted to feel better. Since starting treatments I have improved greatly. I have less pain and stiffness in my neck, arm, and shoulders to the point that I am coming off my pain medications and have been able to sleep through the night. As a bonus, acupuncture has also helped with the numbness in my fingers. Overall, I am feeling more energetic, less depressed, and have my spirits up high.
Ten years ago, I was in a car accident and suffered pain from whiplash. I used pain medications and physical therapy to recover from my injuries but had no success. A friend suggested acupuncture and to my amazement it worked! I went from being incapacitated and depressed to feeling alive and well. As time went on, I learned that acupuncture provided successful treatment for my anxiety, insomnia, indigestion, heartburn and chronic back pain.
I am relieved there is an alternative to drugs to treat conditions that cause severe discomfort and pain. Dr. Liu always listens carefully to my concerns, and I feel that he is dedicated to my health and well being. His staff is friendly, professional and they do a great job coordinating services with your provider. I am grateful I took the risk of trying something new.
I can honestly say that at 60 years of age my quality of life has been enhanced because of acupuncture. I am active, pain free, and able to enjoy life!
