Heart Palpitations

December 11, 2020

I have been seeing Dr. Lau at King’s Acupuncture regularly over the past couple months and I have had a great experience that I would like to share with others!

I initially came looking for a holistic treatment for heart palpitations that had no specific cause per the other medical doctors I have seen. This was my first time trying acupuncture.

The clinic itself has a relaxing atmosphere. Amy, the medical assistant, is very friendly, helpful and welcoming at the front desk every time I come in. Dr. Lau is kind, caring, and super knowledgeable. He will take the time with you to answer questions and make you feel comfortable, which can be rare in the medical field these days. He does not just treat the symptoms you present with. He does a whole head-to-toe assessment to find out where your body may be out of balance, using acupuncture and herbs (if needed) to restore your health.

The treatment itself is very calming for me. You get to relax in a dimly lit room with soft classical music for ~20 minutes or so. There are heat lamps for you to use if, like me, you tend to get cold. I will actually fall asleep half of the time during my session!

I have seen a significant improvements since coming for acupuncture. My palpitations have decreased substantially, most days I have few to none, which is amazing considering just months ago they were occurring every single day, all throughout the day. Acupuncture has also had profoundly positive benefits for my mental health. I laugh a lot more, stress a lot less, I feel less “overwhelm” at the little things that add up. I am grateful to Dr. Lau and his staff for this service provided and I feel lucky to have found acupuncture as one of my tools for healing!
