I have received only the best service and treatment at King's Acupuncture and would recommend Dr. Lau to anyone interested in acupuncture and herbal medicine. I visited him 2 years ago after trying to conceive for 8 months and became pregnant on my first cycle using acupuncture.

I am again under Dr. Lau's care and hoping for similar results! The hours are convenient (morning, afternoon and evening appointments) and the prices are reasonable. Everyone in the office is very professional and caring and it is always a pleasure to visit King's Acupuncture.

I highly recommend acupuncture to anyone suffering with migraines. Dr. Lau is competent, gentle, caring and committed. He listens to your individual needs, offers many suggestions and dietary changes as well as herbs. His office is immaculate, too. The staff are accommodating in scheduling appointments, helpful in answering questions and very friendly. He was referred to me by a friend who heard wonderful results from her own patients and I testify too, in having tremendous results. I am grateful for his knowledge and skill. He is an asset to our community.

To Whom It May Concern:

I heard many positive results within the community regarding Dr. Lau's treatments and a friend and physician assistant had referred me to him. My initial visit to his office began with an in depth consultation and a brief medical history. I first began experiencing migraines postpartum and after six months when I completed breastfeeding it became an everyday occurrence. Migraine disease was predictable in my life and interfered and disrupted the joys of motherhood. The medication for my migraine illness debilitated and paused any goals or daily activities I had and consequently altered my personality negatively. I succumbed to the notion I had to deal with the pain. However, a prayer was answered when I met Dr. Lau and his knowledge and precise technique with acupuncture. I had 2 months of weekly and bi-weekly treatments and have had a drastic reduction in the frequency and intensity of my migraines. I used to carry my medicine in my purse and now because they are infrequent it is in the medicine cabinet. I am very grateful that I met Dr. Lau and his lovely wife and helpful staff. If you are considering acupuncture, my advice to you is to have patience if you want good results and referrals are the best way to find a competent acupuncturist and Dr. Lau is highly recommended in the medical community. Thank you, Dr. Lau, for everything.

I became a patient of Dr. Herbert Lau after reading the scores of rave referrals on his website and receipt of personal positive referrals from two of my friends.

This is to acknowledge and recommend Dr. Lau as an outstanding practitioner of Acupuncture. Dr. Lau has been instrumental in improving my quality of life. He has made me a true believer in Acupuncture.


Note from Dr. Lau: This patient had trigeminal neuralgia that kept him awake with pain and many sleepless nights in the last 40 plus years during episodes of pain exacerbations.

Comes the night

When sleep eludes every try

And thoughts rack the brain

Until you’d like to die

With every muscle

Tight in strain

So very tired

From mental pain

Tossing turning

Waiting for dawn

In this game

You are the pawn

Who calls this tune

Whose melody makes me cry

Who keeps the time

Which rhythm lets me try

With the light of day

The questions all heard

From sleepless nights

The mind is blurred

Dear Dr. Lau and Andrea~

I just wanted to take the time to thank you for helping me to overcome infertility! As you know, my husband and I tried to get pregnant for almost four years. We went through two years of fertility treatments with a specialist. We eventually turned to IVF and supported those procedures with acupuncture in your office. Our second IVF attempt was successful and we are now expecting a baby girl in February 2013! We are thrilled and feel so blessed.

Thank you again for your wonderful treatment and for the miracle of our baby.

For many years I have experienced the discomfort of "restless leg syndrome" but found little relief with medication. A friend suggested that I try acupuncture with Dr. Lau for both the restless legs and for back and hip pain that at times leaves me unable to move in the morning. I was skeptical about the effectiveness of acupuncture but was willing to try anything that might help. After my first treatment, the restless legs had all but disappeared. For the first time in years I was able to relax in the evening to read or watch TV without the need to constantly move my legs. I am on my sixth treatment for my back and it is improving. I am able to get out of bed in the morning and walk with a lot less pain and am looking forward to being completely pain free. I am sold on acupuncture.

To Whom It may Concern: I have been a patient of Dr. Lau's since he opened his practice in Buffalo. His keen insight, knowledge and talent to treat physical and mental problems is of utmost importance. He has helped me with high blood pressure, thyroid problems, emotional well being, pain in different parts of the body and more thru the years. We are most fortunate to have his expertise in this area. A most appreciated patient. L.W.

I have been suffering from trigeminal neuralgia for two years. It was because of the medication I am taking for Multiple Sclerosis. I was put on two different pain medications to help with the pain. It was getting to the point where it was very difficult to walk. My sister and I went on the internet and found that Dr. Lau had success with treating people with this type of pain. I called his office and made an appointment. After the first treatment the pain I was having was gone. One of the medications I was on I was able to stop right away. My other pain medication was cut in half. When I spoke with my neurologist she put Dr. Lau's name on her (referral) list for pain therapy. King's Acupuncture has done wonders for me. Dave N.

I am a 51yr. old african american women. I came to the office with lower back pain. After one treatment my back was 90% better. Dr. Lau sat down with me and explained that eating healthy is also a major factor in maintaining good health. He went back to basics and showed me the food pyramid.

Thank you Dr. Lau and staff - Sherlynn K.

Bell’s Palsy Treatment

I am writing to express my gratitude to King’s Acupuncture. Andrea and Dr. Lau have made a positive impact on my overall health. I suffered from Bells Palsy in Sept 2010. The right side of my face was affected: low muscle tone, eye wouldn’t blink, pain on right side of my face and head. My overall facial features appeared disfigured. I tried facial exercises and massage and had little change in muscle tone or appearance. I was looking for a natural approach to feeling and looking well. After a year and five months I came across testimony from people who experience relief from their Bells Palsy through acupuncture.

An extended family member had a great experience at King’s Acupuncture and recommended Dr. Lau. I called to set up an appointment and was able to get in within 48 hours. Dr. Lau was very professional and took down my concerns and we started the treatment that day. He recommended six sessions and felt he could help. After the first day I felt some relief of the facial pain I experienced over the last 29 months. Andrea continued my treatment due to her personal experience treating Bells Palsy & stroke patients in China. She was friendly and explained things as she went along. Andrea was easy to talk to and answered many questions I have had throughout my treatment. My facial tone has improved dramatically and I am no longer experiencing facial pain. I look better and feel better. Many friends and family have complimented me on how well my face looks. I am thrilled with the results.

My experience with acupuncture is twofold – both times seeking pain management. When physical therapy and oral pain meds had failed to bring relief to a painful arthritic knee and annoying sciatica I came to King's Acupuncture. After the recommended series of six treatments, the knee was completely pain free and the sciatica seemed to disappear. That was six years ago and the pain is still nonexistent.

I had been coping with mid back pain for a lengthy period recently which brought me to King's Acupuncture for a second time. Another series of six treatments has eased this discomfort almost magically. I know Kings Acupuncture is there for a few more treatments if I need them. I do not wish to invade my body with oral pain medication. When a pain free lifestyle can result from a holistic approach, I am much more in favor of this process.

Several points to consider when pondering acupuncture. The treatment is painless. The needles are extremely tiny and painlessly inserted. Gentle muscle stem patches are relaxing. Quiet music filters into each treatment room. Dr. Lau is gentle and reassuring and will eagerly answer questions and share interesting information about the Chinese culture or just about any topic. The rooms and procedure are hygienically sound. Clients can also purchase herbal supplements and pain patches if interested, but these products are not pushed or presented.

It is unfortunate that insurance companies do not recognize the value of acupuncture and cover the cost. Dr. Lau assures me this is a process that acupuncturists are encouraging and striving for. Since medical doctors are recommending and referring patients to a cupuncture and veterinarians are using this form of pain management on animals, we can only hope that, at some pint into the near future, insurance companies will get on board, too.

Pain free is within reach. I am a true believer in acupuncture. In my case, final results have been positive and long lasting.

I am 35 years old and have been trying to get pregnant for seven years. My husband and I have been through fertility treatments and two unsuccessful cycles of IVF. Before the third round of IVF in the fall of 2011, I decided to try acupuncture treatments at King's Acupuncture, to try to increase my chances of getting pregnant during the upcoming IVF cycle. I received weekly treatments for approximately 2 months prior to the IVF cycle. According to Dr. Lau, the most important days to receive the acupuncture treatment is the day before and after the embryo transfer during the IVF cycle, which I did. Approximately two weeks later, I had a positive pregnancy test!! My husband and I were shocked and completely elated with the wonderful news! We thought, it must have been the acupuncture treatments I received that truly made the IVF cycle work this time. And one week later, we found out we were having TWINS!! Again, we were overjoyed, extremely thankful and we feel truly blessed. In addition, Dr. Lau personally called me two weeks after the transfer to see if I was pregnant. I couldn't believe he took time out of his busy day to call me! He truly went above and beyond! My husband and I were pleasantly surprised to get the call and it made us even more grateful to Dr. Lau. So, thank you Dr. Lau and Andrea for the acupuncture treatments and providing such a warm, welcoming and comfortable atmosphere. Your work is truly invaluable. I have recommended your services to a friend and will continue to give positive recommendations for King's Acupuncture. Thank you so much.

Dr. Lau,

Approximately six months ago I had surgery on my neck for a two level cervical discectomy* and fusion with a titanium plate attached to my spine. I have been experiencing some residual effects from the surgery in the form of a stabbing pain at the base of my skull that, at times, feels like it shoots through the left side of my face, problems with my esophagus that give me this uncomfortable feeling as though something is stuck in my throat along with discomfort that runs the entire length of my esophagus through to my stomach and finally, significant depression.

I originally saw you about two years ago for treatment of other issues and remembered how kind, gentle and caring you were so I decided to try acupuncture once again for these current problems I've been experiencing. At my first appointment, I explained to you what the three issues were that I was wrestling with and had my first treatment. The following day I was thrilled to discover that my depression had lifted. I actually felt giddy with relief of no longer having that awful persistent feeling of helplessness and sadness. Plus, I even felt some improvement already with my other two problems as well! I had gone through the exasperation of bounding back and forth between several doctors and specialists and got nowhere; I came to you, got one treatment and already feel a difference! I am confident that acupuncture will resolve all three of my problems.

Thank you to you and your wonderful, helpful staff!
