“In summer 2018, I began suffering from a facial pain that, after I saw three doctors and a dentist, was finally correctly diagnosed on October 1, 2018, as trigeminal neuralgia, a nerve pain that became constant and varied only between bad and excruciating.
A neurologist placed me on medication but that wasn’t helping. On November 8, 2018, I came to Dr. Sharon Weng at Oriental Art of Healing Acupuncuter clinic to begin acupuncture treatments. Sharon told me that she was familiar with trigeminal nerve pain and had successfully treated it before. With acupuncture I saw relief as the excruciating pain subsided. However, some pain endured for several months, during which time Sharon was always helpful and encouraging. In January 2019 I began having a few pain-free days, until (finally!) on March 9, 2019, the pain ended. I want to thank Sharon for her treatment and support during the many weeks needed to overcome this persistent pain.” — John, Engineer
