I was diagnosed with Bell's Palsy on November 27th and immediately began acupuncture treatment at a clinic in south Austin. After 7 weeks of treatments I saw very little results and asked the acupuncturist for his recommendation. He said he had done all he could do and referred me to Dr. Liu. I was shocked that someone who was collecting almost $300 a week from me would refer me away to another doctor. I called and set up an appointment with Dr. Liu for the next week.

At the initial appointment Dr. Liu spent almost two hours working on my face. He started with an initial discussion of the Bell's and its onset, then treated the area with acupuncture and massage. I have been seeing him for almost 4 weeks and have seen drastic improvements in facial movement. He prioritized treatment by focusing on the eye area first so that I could begin to close my eye. He has moved onto the smile lines and has been able to bring back movement there as well. He is now working on the brow and forehead lines.

Dr. Liu is extremely well versed in neurological diseases and specifically Bells Palsy. He has great nurtitional advice as well. Dr. Liu teaches patients a multi-prong approach to recovery. He makes sure to spend adequate time examining tender facial muscles and treating specific areas of need during each appointment. He also taught me how to massage the muscles when I go home to encourage recovery in between appointments.

I am so thankful to have come in contact with him. My Bell's Palsy is definitely improving and I am positive his treatments are the cause. I would highly recommend visiting Dr. Liu for acupuncture treatments.
