first met Lei Shaw in 1999. I had been suffering from migraine
and cluster headaches for many years and my wife suggested
we attend a lecture about acupuncture at one of the local
libraries in Indianapolis. After listening to Lei's presentation,
I decided that I would give acupuncture a try. At that point,
I was willing to try just about anything to ease the pain.
I wasn't very familiar with the procedure, but thought that
there must be something to it for it to have been around for
such a long time.
began weekly treatments and noticed after a few weeks that
the frequency and severity of my headaches was starting to
lessen. In addition to the acupuncture treatments, Lei also
gave me some herbal mixtures to take, which would help with
the symptoms. She has a vast knowledge of Chinese herbs and
their usage and always knows just what helps with what symptom
Lei continued to treat me and eventually we reached the point
that there were several months between treatments. If I happen
to get a headache now I just go visit Lei for a "tune tip"
and that takes care of it.
addition to the excellent results I experienced with headache
pain, Lei has helped with other injuries and concerns along
the way. I have allergies and have found that acupuncture
is excellent for opening up my sinuses and helping my breathing.
Lei is currently treating me for a recurring problem with
tendonitis in my elbow. The original injury came from martial
arts practice and I have reinstated it at work, I called Lei
a few months ago and asked if she was able to do something
for tendonitis. After just one treatment the pain noticeably
decreased and I am continuing to receive treatments at this
time. I am very pleased with the results. I had similar positive
results with a minor ankle sprain.
has been a pleasure to get to know. She is a very pleasant
person and is eager to bring relief to my aches and pains.
Her knowledge of acupuncture and herbal treatments is excellent
and she always has a professional and positive attitude. My
work schedule changes on a weekly basis and Lei has always
gone out of her way to accommodate me. I consider myself very
fortunate to have attended that lecture at the library in
1999. Acupuncture has definitely helped me and I will continue
to seek Lei's help with any future injuries or health concerns.
