In April of this year, I developed a rash on the back of my legs that wouldn’t go away. It was very itchy and I was scratching it and damaging my skin while I slept at night. After almost three months of treatment by my medical doctor and a trip to a dermatologist, the rash had worsened and spread to all parts of my body except my face. I was prescribed a steroid shot, two rounds of oral steroid treatments, and a topical steroid cream. None of these had helped my rash. The steroids made me very sick and caused me to have insomnia. I had been weeks without a good night’s sleep from the drugs and the intense itching.

I had an appointment with Dr. Yuxing Liu. I told him that I had never been to and acupuncturist before, but I was really desperate for some relief. He assured me that he could treat me with acupuncture and herbs. I was ready to try anything. After the first treatment, I felt some relief from the "hot” rash and thought maybe I was onto something that could help. Dr. Liu took the time to "listen” and treat me as an individual and not just as another patient. I returned weekly for treatments. Each time, Dr. Liu listened to how I was doing and adjusted my herbs to what I needed the following week. After three acupuncture treatments and three weeks of herbal treatment, the rash was gone. I was sleeping 6-7 hours at a time at night. Now, I am a firm believer in these treatments. I feel great and will continue to see Dr. Liu as needed in the future.
