I am a confirmed believer in the effectiveness of acupuncture

Dear Dr. Lau,

When I paid my first visit to your office last Wednesday, I was fairly certain that acupuncture would alleviate the problem I was experiencing because I had successfully undergone acupuncture for other ailments with a doctor in another state a few years ago. I decided to visit your office because I had felt pains in my lower back that radiated down the backside of my left leg for roughly the preceding two weeks, and they showed no signs of abating. The pains were sometimes severe enough to awaken me at night while I was asleep. Based on internet research I suspected it might be sciatica, which I had never had before, and I did not know what might have caused it in me.

On my first visit to your office you listened to my explanation of the symptoms and you determined that it was the piriformis muscle that was causing irritation of the sciatic nerve. You very accurately diagnosed the problem, and after the very first acupuncture session, the pain in my left leg vanished. I still had a bit of soreness deep inside the left hip, and after the second acupuncture session two days later on Friday, that discomfort also vanished. My final session was on Tuesday, less than a week later, and by the completion of that acupuncture session all pain had disappeared from my back and my left leg.

As I said, I was fairly certain acupuncture could correct the pain I was having, but I did not think it would happen so quickly. I want to thank you for zeroing in on the cause of the problem and for accurately applying excellent acupuncture techniques. I am a confirmed believer in the effectiveness of acupuncture, and I will certainly return to you for help should I again experience persistent pains or other health problems.
