…I began seeing Dr. Leng on April 23 (2002)…for severe pain in my upper neck, back and arm..resulting from a large osteophyte from arthritis pressing on a nerve in my upper spine. The arthritis was diagnosed nine years ago, when I was in my early thirties. The number of flare-ups has been increasing in the last few years…I had been taking anti-inflammatory drugs since February along with physiotherapy twice a week Regardless of these treatments my pain was not decreasing and it was getting increasingly difficult to raise my arm or move without severe pain. Several months of this chronic pain was very debilitating and started to affect my outlook on life. I asked the physiotherapist to do acupuncture to try and help alleviate the pain. However, the experience was both stressful and painful

In desperation, and with my family physician\rquote s suggestion, I sought a Chinese trained acupuncturist and was fortunate enough to find Dr. Leng. After six acupuncture treatments over a three-week period, I was completely pain free in both my back and arm. Dr. Leng was both proficient and professional at performing her services. In addition, her kind mannerism helped allay my fears.

Friends who are familiar with how debilitating my pain has been are amazed at the change and how quickly it occurred. I am truly grateful for the pain relief provided by Dr. Leng. I generally lead a fairly active life that was truly disrupted for the last four months. Thanks to Dr. Leng, I have begun enjoying the things I like to do
