The following photos show a before/after result after just a few treatments for a patient diagnosed with Blethraspasm, an abnormal contraction or twitch of the eyelid, and Hemifacial Spasm, where the muscles on one side of your face twitch involuntarily.
Testimonial from Patient:
It began 11 years ago with a simple little flutter, and it did it for quite a while on and off. I went to my regular eye doctor we tried a bunch of things, but nothing helped.
Over time the spasms then migrated into my cheek, lip and chin area and my face muscles would pull to the left. At this time I decided to get a second opinion and was referred to a neurological ophthalmologist at Yale who gave me Botox injections in my eye area. That helped but the injections last only 8 weeks and I would have to keep going back for more injections.
We decided to stop the Botox after 9 years mainly because the condition continued to get worse. My eyelid began to twitch uncontrollably then droop as a side effect of the Botox injections. I also wasn’t feeling too good about having Botox continually injected into my face either. I’ve also been on oral medications since May 2018 and those don’t work either.
I went to see Dr. Gao at Oriental Healing a week ago out of desperation and ‘holy cow’ it has definitely lessened my symptoms. Dr. Gao is an acupuncturist from China who practices traditional Chinese medicine. Within a few treatments my spasms began to stabilize.
The photos above is results after 3 or 4 treatments.
Dr. Gao is a wonderful man.
