Univera Health Care
Dear Dr. R.:
This lady found significant improvement through acupuncture treatments. Her neck feels better than when I saw her on 8/2/00. She does stand with her head jutted forward about 1cm from the trunk. She can forward flex the chin to the chest and extend 16cm. Rotation is allowed 70 degrees bilaterally. She can abduct bilaterally 180 degrees with troubles. There is tenderness over both lateral epicondytes of the elbows, in addiction to ongoing pain in her heel.
It has now been ten full months since this lady was involved in a motor vehicle crash. This lady has not worked full-time since the accident, however, was working on a part time basis throughout the spring, however, couldn't perform her duties as a hairdresser.
She continues to have troubles. At this point I would not recommend surgical intervention. She is going to need ongoing non-operative care with the acupuncturist. My major concern is that the job as a hairdresser is that of a profession in which the hairdresser needs to stand for long periods of time, in addition to keeping their arms abducted and being able to support themselves with their trunk, thorax and neck musculature. I don't believe that this lady is going to be able to return to this kind of work, particularly if she unable to tolerate her present symptoms at ten months after injury

Thank you for the presentation to our Tuesday night, Fibromyalgia support Group. Your presentation was very well prepared and filled with quality information.
I know the group found the demonstration helpful and informative.
Once again, thank you for sharing your knowledge and time.

Dear Dr. Lau,
Thank you very much for the top-notch treatment you have given me. It is miraculous the way you eliminated the severe pain that I have been suffering.
First of all, I had such severe pain in my neck that I could not even turn my head enough to drive a car safely and my fiance', James, had to drive me all over. Now I have no pain whatsoever in my neck. The little acupuncture needles in my neck hardly caused me any discomfort, but they were effective in restoring the full range of movement to my neck.
Secondly, my upper back was causing me terrible pain. Your skillful hands stopped this pain in my upper back that had me in agony for fifteen years.
In addition, my lower back caused me such crippling pain that I could not walk well or far. For six years I suffered such pain in my lower back. Also, I had pain in my feet, wrists and fingers. My medical doctor tells me that I suffer from fibromyalgia. Dr. Lau, your acupuncture helped these conditions tremendously.
Unlike the time before I saw you, Dr. Lau, now I can walk and exercise without pain. Thank you for your acumen which is nothing short of miraculous. God bless you and I'll see you again if I get any more injuries.
Dear Dr. Lau,
I would like to express my
sincere appreciation for your hard work and compassion throughout the
acupuncture sessions. Over this time, I am relieved of 85% of the chronic
sciatica. I haven't felt this good for many years.

Dear Dr. Lau:
I am writing this letter in an attempt to express my never ending gratitude to you (and your wonderful staff) in helping me to overcome the debilitating bonds of "chronic obstruction pulmonary disease (COPD).
As you know my health has been somewhat compromised for many years due to constant allergies and consequent respiratory and bronchial infections. But, the true nightmare did not begin until February 1998 when I contracted an especially virulent strain of influenza which immediately compromised my entire respiratory system. Since that time I have been hospitalized on six separate occasions and have been on 24 hour (supplemental) oxygen for almost fifteen months. Even with the aid of constant oxygen therapy my physical capabilities were extremely limited due to the severe shortness of breath and very low energy reserves.
Over the past 27 months I have been prescribed a broad range of therapies in an attempt to improve my serious condition. Included was extremely large does of steroids, low dose chemotherapy and anti organ rejection drugs. Sadly, all of these treatments left me to deal with various and (often) serious, negative side effects.
It was not until I began treatment with you in mid-April 2000 did I begin to feel any significant relief. I am now able to breathe on my own on May 5, 2000 after only four visits to your office. Since then I have continued to receive two visits per week (totally ten visits thus far). I feel as if I have been liberated from a prison of physical incapability's. It is as if I am living a miracle.
I can now walk at a reasonable pace and not become short of breathe. I am able to perform non-aerobic physical tasks and do not become totally exhausted. I feel so blessed to be part of the "miracle" that God is performing through your healing knowledge and practice.
Thank you will never adequately express my gratitude to you (and God) for helping me to renew the physical part of my life. My eternal hope is that you are able to help as many people as possible with your amazing ability.
Please know that I will be more than happy to speak to anyone who may have questions regarding my acupuncture treatments. Thank you for sharing your gifts, compassion and eagerness with anyone in need.
May God bless you and your family, always.
Dr. Herbert K. Y. Lau
I came to your office and
walked in with a cane, 1/2 hour later I didn't need the cane. I made 3
more visits and my lower back felt good and I can bend.

Dear Dr. Lau:
I wanted to write to express
my thanks for your treatment and guidance in dealing with my ear problem.
As you are aware, I was diagnosed with Tinnitis by an Ear, Nose and Throat
specialist. I was hopeful that there would be an effective treatment for
me. The specialist basically told me that there was not treatment and
that I would have "to live with it."
After discussing this situation
with my sister, who has successfully
I wish you continued success in your field of treatment.
