I recently graduated from the University of Kansas with a M.D. as well as a Ph.D. in Pharmacology. Because of my training, I know that techniques such as acupuncture will never be scientifically proven in Western medicine because those who fund research do not have a commercial interest in it. I believe that there is a wealth to be uncovered in these ancient disciplines.
I recently came down with Bell\rquote s palsy and was treated with prednisone and acyclovir. A good friend, trained in Western medicine, strongly recommended that I try acupuncture and specifically referred me to Dr. Leng. She treated me using acupuncture, heat, and massage for seven session over a two-week period with excellent result. Dr. Leng\rquote s professional manner and skill impressed me, and I believe her work and equipment meet the highest standards of quality.
My personal physicians are amazed at the speed and extent of my recovery given the degree of my paralysis. I cannot prove it scientifically, but I believe that Dr. Leng\rquote s treatment played an important part in my full and speedy recovery. I enthusiastically recommend Dr. Xiaochun Leng as an acupuncturist and practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine.
