My mother had a very severe hemorrhagic stroke on Friday 6th February, 2015 and was left in a coma for about three weeks. She slowly started to wake up but she was very paralysed on the left side of her body, including the left side of her face. After she was cleared of being critically ill, she was moved to a rehabilitation centre and started acupuncture with Jenny Li.
Jenny has been coming in to treat my mother with acupuncture three times a week for the last a few months, and my mother has had a dramatic improvement in her recovery. In the beginning, she was not about to sit herself up in bed, nor stand up alone without full support. However she was able to sit up on her own, could stand up with minimal aid and now she can walk again. She has regained function for some of the muscles in her leg and her facial paralysis is hardly noticeable at all which has made her speech much clearer and easier to understand.
The stroke has left my mother with some depression and obvious frustration that she has lost a lot of her independence. Most of my mother’s intellect has returned to its normal state, but Jenny has provided my mother with some traditional herbs to take to aid re-absorbing all the bleeding she had from the stroke. Jenny has been patient and understanding throughout this difficult situation and is always willing to give encouragement. She is flexible with the times she gives treatment which has been of great assistance for my mother’s recovery.
