Anxiety

January 2018

I began seeing Dr. Lau for acupuncture for a diagnosed anxiety disorder. I was taking medication daily for anxiety and approximately every 3-4 months, I would need to have the dose increased as it stopped working. I decided to try acupuncture instead to see if I could work my way off of the medication. I visited Dr. Lau for my initial evaluation. After several treatments I spoke with my primary doctor and came up with a plan to ween myself off of the anxiety medications. This took 2 weeks to complete. In the meantime, I was continuing with acupuncture 2 times a week for 5 weeks. I am currently no longer taking any medications and feeling wonderful. I am not having any symptoms of anxiety (example: feeling like there is a lump in my throat, anxious, etc.). I would highly recommend Dr. Lau to treat this disorder. He was kind, caring, compassionate, and thorough during my exams. I would like to thank him and his office staff for a great, life changing experience!
