Some people suffer headaches only occasionally, while for others the problem is chronic.For some 20 million Americans each year, the pain of headache is severe enough to warrant a visit for treatments. And according to government estimates, some 64 million workdays are lost due to various types of headaches.

I have had headaches for at least 15 years. Most days I would wake up with a headache and would go to sleep at night with the same pain. I have been treated by David Lee one or two times per week for the last six weeks, and my headaches are gone.
I started feeling the pressure around my eyes and around temples [few months ago]. First, I thought something was wrong with my eyes. I bought an eye drop. I was taking Tylenol every 4 hours (for almost solid 2 months!). Someone thought that I had sinus infection. I was treated with antibiotics at 2 separate times. My The first day I experienced acupuncture treatment, I noticed that I did not take Tylenol all day. (wow!). My headache was almost gone by the 3rd treatment. I am also taking herb powder mix given by Dr. Lee. I feel so much better now.
Since I was 12 years old [now age 54], I started with migraines. Over the years, my headaches worsened. For the past 11 years I’ve been getting them 3-4 times a week, without being able to control it. I’ve been to several doctors, they’ve prescribed different medications and nothing seemed to help. I thought about it for 2 weeks before having my first consultation with you. I am extremely happy to say there has been a whole new change with my life style. Now I can get up from bed and go on with my everyday duties. I still get slight headaches but not to an extreme that I can’t get up from bed. You have helped me a lot. I thought that there was no way to control my migraines.
