Dear Dr. Lau,

I’m writing this letter so that I can thank you for making me pain free. I had one year of excruciating pain due to tendinitis in my left ankle. I tried two different orthopedists – one gave me a cortisone shot, and the other suggested that I “live with it”. I became frustrated and angry due to the pain and swelling and limping, trying to lead a normal active life.

I finally tried acupuncture, with much skepticism I might add, but I am now an ardent believer. I am now 100% without pain and swelling and so happy I could sing. And I have.

Again, I am so grateful and thank you.

Jean O’Leary
