“I felt like a normal person again”

October 3, 2018

My first meeting with Dr. Herbert Lau was on Friday, July 27, 2018, for overactive-urgent bladder. The prescribed medication I had been taking neither stopped nor improved my urgency incontinence, and it had miserable side effects from dehydration. Dr. Lau explained to me that he could not guarantee a cure, but we could give acupuncture and herbal supplements a try. I was very pleasantly surprised on August 28, 2018 the day of my 6 th treatment, I had the relief I sought from overactive-urgent bladder.

NO MORE: “Gotta Go, Gotta Go, Gotta Go Right Now!”

NO MORE: “Run, Run, Run to the Bathroom!”

NO MORE: “Just Made It!”

NO MORE: Strong urges, leaks or accidents. Just a calm physical indication I should go to the bathroom. I felt like a normal person again.

I continued treatments with Dr. Lau through September 19 for a total of nine. Currently, I continue taking the herbal supplement – three per day. I am so very grateful for the relief I have from overactive-urgent bladder. I pray that it will last; if it doesn’t, I will see Dr. Lau again.


“Magic is what it felt like”

May 2018

This was my first encounter with an acupuncture specialist. I had been seeing a
medical doctor for urology related problems for the past nine years without
success. After only two visits to Dr. Herbert Lau for treatment of urology related
problems by acupuncture, my concerns were solved. I do not believe in magic but
the experience with Dr. Lau and his office staff was so positive and it worked out
so well that magic is what it felt like. I am going to continue to incorporate Dr.
Lau’s acupuncture and herbalism treatments for my medical needs and I am
recommending his practice highly to anyone in need.

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!

Most of the total pain is GONE

July 24, 2017

When I first came to Dr. Lau at Kings Acupuncture, I had been suffering from severe nerve pain as a result of a bad case of the Shingles. My attack of the Shingles started in December 2016, and after the blisters were cured, about three weeks later, I waited for the nerve pain to subside. But it never did.

My issue: after the painful blisters dried up, the nerve pain where they had been, never went away. This area covered my right thigh and around to my right buttock. The resulting pain was varied, either dull and throbbing or sharp and electric. It was often strong enough to make me cry out loud. It never went away, just moved around. All I could do was take prescribed medication. I visited neurologist’s and other doctors.

Trying to ease my pain, I tried medication and chiropractic, but with only limited improvement. This went on for seven months.

Finally, I visited Dr Lau and asked for his help. I must say, that I started getting relief after the first session. A month later, I am very pleased. Much of the pain (sharp and dull) has been relieved. The electric “jolts” are gone and I only get some occasional pains. I would say 90-95% of the total pain is GONE. I have reduced my medications considerably.

After 8 sessions, I am feeling MUCH better. I am walking and sleeping MUCH better. I used to have to LIFT my right leg to get into the car, today I found myself getting into the car normally, so things seem to be getting back to NORMAL. So, am well pleased with Dr. lau’s treatment.

Emphatical endorsement of Dr. Lau and his acupuncture practice

April 20, 2017

When I first made an appointment with Dr. Lau in July of 2013, I had been suffering intolerable back pain with sciatica nerve pain from my tailbone down both my legs. I had tried stretching, yoga, strengthening exercises, went to a chiropractor and took OTC anti-inflammatory meds. It got so bad, I had to have my husband take me to the emergency room where they diagnosed a possible herniated disc or similar issue. They prescribed opioid pain meds (oxycodone), 800 mg ibuprofen and naproxen. Nothing helped! I was desperate and finding it hard to sleep, eat or work. I had always been open to any type of alternative / holistic approaches to medicine and lifestyle but had never tried acupuncture. I researched some local acupuncture offices and chose Kings Acupuncture after visiting their site and their proximity to where I work. From the first visit with Dr. Lau I felt at ease and comfortable enough to explain all my issues. He asked me questions and got a history. He then gave me acupuncture 4 or 5 times over the next two weeks. I am not kidding when I tell you, I got relief after the first session and continued improving each time after until I was pain free and felt completely normal! I also asked Dr. Lau to treat my hemorrhoids (painful & bleeding) problem and he prescribed some Chinese herbs that made my issue go away completely after a 30 day supply.

Almost two years later I had a similar episode of back pain but did not hesitate to make an appointment right away. Again within four treatments I was pain free. Also at that time, I had been having bad wrist pain (carpet tunnel perhaps?) and tennis elbow pain and arthritis in my hands that he treated at the same time and I have not had bad pain since. Recently, I returned again to Dr. Lau, almost two years after my last treatment with similar back / sciatica pain and we are improving greatly with each treatment!

I am emphatically endorsing Dr. Lau and his acupuncture practice. I beg anyone that has issues they need help with to consider visiting Dr. Lau and King’s Acupuncture for help! Don’t suffer any longer!

Thank you for your continued service!
