My name is Maryann Pomegranate...
My name is Maryann Pomegranate. After 7 years of using my right arm to do repetitive eye exercises for symptoms of vertigo, I developed severe carpal tunnel in my right shoulder, arm and hand. The pain was severe and the range of motion was limited making it difficult to work at the computer.
I went to Dr. Liu at her El Cerrito office. I explained the situation to Dr. Liu. She examined me then treated me with acupuncture. After this first treatment, I experience some relief. I decided to stop the eye exercises for as long as I could in order to allow my shoulder, arm and hand to heal. The next morning I did not have the symptoms of vertigo. I continued the treatments for carpal tunnel. After several treatments my shoulder, arm and hand were completely healed. The vertigo symptoms never returned.
I did not know that the acupuncture treatments could or would alleviate the symptoms of vertigo. This was a great gift. This was the beginning of 2011 and I remain symptom free from the vertigo and my right shoulder, arm and hand remain pain free and with complete range of motion.
Early this year, 2012, my right inner ear was blocked and infected. One morning I awoke with sever dizziness. I went to my VA medical clinic. Despite the sever dizziness the medical practitioner said they could not see any problem in my ear.
I called Dr. Liu; she said to come immediately to her office. After examining me, she said yes, my ear was infected. She gave me one acupuncture treatment. I got off the table, the block and dizziness were cleared. The dizziness has not returned.
Dr. Liu is a gifted diagnostician. This guides her acupuncture treatments. I have and will continue to recommend her. Especially to people that have not been helped by western medicine.
