Dear Dr. Lau,

I just wanted to send you this note of thanks for having helped me with both my stress levels and sleeping problems which I have had for the past 4 years. As a business owner, husband, father of two daughters (one is a type 1 diabetic), not to mention I have a father who has Parkinson’s disease, you could say my stress level is considerable.

I had problems both falling asleep and staying asleep. I had tried both natural and prescription sleeping pills with limited success. Oh, sure they would work for about a week and then back to the same old routine of maybe getting 2-3 hours of sleep a night. I was getting very frustrated and could hardly stay awake while driving, which was starting to scare me. Imagine if I had fallen asleep at the wheel, gotten into an accident and something happened to me. What would become of my family? What if I seriously injured someone else? This, I could not live with, so after reading some news articles about how acupuncture could help with stress and sleeping problems, I decided to give it a try.

I pass your office daily and decided to give you a call. The phone was answered by your office staff, and they gladly answered a few questions I had, so I made an appointment. After arriving for my consultation and meeting with you, I was told that you could help me but, it would take more than one treatment. This was understandable, and I tried what you suggested and started off with 4 treatments and some herbs, which you, also, suggested. I was amazed. After the first treatment, I went home that night and went about my daily routine. Well, I started to get tired by 11:00 PM. This has not happened to me in such a long time. After going to bed, I slept until about 5:30 AM. I could not believe it; I had slept for over 6 hours. I had not only slept for such a long period of time, but I, also, felt rested for the first time in a long while. After a few more sessions, sleep had returned to me on a regular basis, and my stress level is nowhere near what is has been in the past.

I had, also, expressed to you that I have a problem with sinusitis. You, then, proceeded to treat this. Well, all I can say is thank you. You have done what my regular doctor could not do with all the prescriptions he has given me. Sure, they would work for a few months, but then, the sinusitis would hit me again. Even after all the prescription medication I took, I still had one major problem. My left sinus would never open up, but after ten minutes of the first treatment, it opened right up and has been clear for over a month now.

I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate every thing you have done for me. You have a new patient for life in me, and I would not hesitate to ask you for help in the future.
