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!
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 was nauseated and it had been going on for 6 weeks. It was debilitating to the point where all I did was lie in the fetal position and I didn't eat or drink anything for days at a time because I feared being more nauseated and vomiting. I went to my doctor and a gastroenterologist specialist and both gave me very inconclusive answers and told me to take a handful of pills, none of which helped.
After only 2 acupuncture treatments the nausea was gone and by the end of the 5th treatment I was back to myself 100%. No nausea, no fatigue, and I was able to keep food and water down. I looked forwarded to each and every appointment. Modern medicine told me to deal with the discomfort and take medication, but G&L Acupuncture and Wellness Center was able to treat the nausea and make it stay away.
I met Dr. Liu at a health fair at my work site, and he saw me limping and came over to talk to me about my health problem.
For 3 months, I had been experiencing lower back pain, along with numbness and electrical sensations in the back of my leg and knee. I could hardly walk when I got up in the morning, and I couldn't complete all of my job functions. Recreational activities were almost impossible. I was treated by a chiropractor and physical therapist with no success. Dr. Liu thought he might be able to help me with acupuncture.
I was fortunate to receive some immediate results from the treatments. I could sleep on my side and I could walk better. With each visit I gained more ground, and eventually I could perform all of my job functions, take part in recreational activities, go on walks and sleep better.
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 had tingling and numbness in my hands, fingers and arms that had been worsening over the previous year. Eventually, my hands felt like they were constantly "asleep," and I was kept awake at night with radiating pain up both arms. I knew I needed to see a physician, but I dreaded the thought of surgery. Instead, I wanted to try acupuncture.
After two months of acupuncture treatment, the pain is gone completely, and the tingling and numbness only occurs when I hold my hands and arms in a position that restricts blood circulation. I am so appreciative to G&L for the acupuncture - my hands and arms are in the best condition!
I started coming to G&L Acupuncture and Wellness Center in April, 2010. I had surgery for cancer and sought acupuncture treatment to support my immune system. I had also suffered personal loss in my life and wanted to address grief and emotional stress.
I feel much healthier now and have a lot more energy. I also feel less sad and anxious. And, as an unexpected and pleasant bonus, I've lost 20 pounds since I started treatment!
