I experienced a major stroke six months ago, causing paralyses of my left side. I could not use my left hand and had drop foot on the left side; everything on the left side of my body was paralyzed. I could not do daily activities. I was desperate and I felt hopeless. I was thinking I would have to live the rest of my life in a wheelchair. One of my friends recommended I see Dr. Liu. I saw him because I was willing to try anything to get my life back to normal. When I first went to Dr. Liu’s office, I was seated in wheelchair. After my first treatment, I saw the light. After Dr. Liu finished needling, he asked me to move my fingers and toes on the left side. I did. Amazingly, I found I could move my toes a little bit. After more treatments, I could move my left ankle. Gradually I could move my fingers, leg and arm of the left side, and I could feel strength again in my left side. After about 10 treatments, I could stand up on both feet, though my left leg was weak. Gradually I was able to lift up my left foot and put it down. After about 20 treatments, I could walk a few steps and I could move my left arm around. You can imagine how happy I was by then. I continued my acupuncture treatments for a few months. Now I walk normally, no longer need a wheelchair and can take care of myself without any difficulties. No words can express my gratitude. You gave me a new life. Thank you, Dr. Liu.
