When I first saw Amy, I had been sick for nine months with back pain and nerve pain. I was unable to sit, lie on my back or walk for more than five minutes. I had three MRIs, one CT-scan, ultrasounds, physiotherapy and chiropractic treatments, and special pelvic physiotherapy.. All the tests said that there was nothing remarkable. The nerve pain was, and is still, a mystery. I was taking three medications - one for nerve pain, one for depression and anxiety, and one for pure pain. After three acupuncture treatments with Amy, I started sitting. It felt extraordinary after being under "house arrest" for so long. I can now walk, sit and lie on my back. I continue to see Amy, who is extremely knowledgeable and is a real miracle worker. The friend who referred me has been seeing Amy for over 20 years. So do several members of her family. Amy is focused, caring and really remarkable. I have eliminated almost all my medication and I am getting my life back. Thank you!
I have sciatica pain in my back, and for years it has completely stopped my life. After seeing several doctors, physiotherapists, and going through tremendous amounts of pain medication, there was no relief. A friend recommended that I see Dr. Lao, and gave me her number. She listens to everything you have to say and is supportive, which is what I felt I didn't get from my doctors. Since seeing Amy, my life has changed! I am now off medication and on the road to recovery.
I started acupuncture sessions with Dr. Amy Lao on February 6, 2012 to help with my menopause symptoms. I was experiencing "hot flashes" every half-hour… Sleep was out of the question. After five weeks of these symptoms, I was mentally and physically exhausted. I googled "acupuncture clinics", found Dr. Amy Lao's contact information and began acupuncture treatments. After the first treatment, I noticed a difference immediately. The hot flashes were reduced to 5 or 6 a day, with only a couple during the night and the sweats were minimal. Now after six treatments, I might experience a hot flash first thing in the morning, but it is so mild that I barely notice the effect. For the first time in years, I can actually make it through the night without experiencing hot flashes and the accompanying night sweats. I am very pleased with my results, and have recommended Dr. Lao to my friends and colleagues.
On January 2nd 2011, I developed such a severe pain in my sciatic nerve that it reduced my mobility to about 5% of what it was previously. I could not sit in a chair, I could barely walk, and when I tried to lie down the pain was so severe that sleep was next to impossible… I called Ms. Lao and discovered she was willing to take me for treatment that same day… The day after my first treatment I was amazed at the improvement. I was not at full mobility yet but the improvement was remarkable. I went back the next day for another treatment. The day following that second treatment, I felt as though there was nothing wrong with me in the first place. My pain had been eliminated after only two treatments. Amy Lao saved me from countless missed days of work and made me a believer in her abilities. I am so grateful that she was willing to take me in for treatment with such short notice and grateful for her knowledge of her profession. Thank you again Amy. You have made such a difference.
The clinic was recommended to me by my sports physiotherapist for pain relief since the sports physiotherapist could no longer help me with chronic back and leg pain. I have been receiving acupuncture treatments and it really helps reduce my pain. I have more energy during the day because I can sleep much better now. I also have better range of motion and stamina after a treatment. I would really recommend!
I had so much pain I could not sleep. I received acupuncture and my pain decreased a lot. I would definitely recommend Dr. Lao.
I saw Amy (Dr. Amy Lao) and it was wonderful. It was the first time I ever had acupuncture and I was so relaxed I fell asleep. She gave me some herbal lotion to take home and it really helped too. My shoulder felt much better afterward!
I had an ongoing sinus infection for almost six months that was causing severe facial pressure, congestion, and impacting my sleep. Antibiotics, nasal sprays, and other remedies were not working. After only one session with Amy, I felt immediate relief from the pressure. After a couple of sessions, I could feel the blockage in my nasal passageway beginning to break for the first time in six months! I am sleeping better and am finally getting back to normal. Thank you so much, Amy.
