Kayaking Injury:

In July, 2007, I hurt my shoulder while kayaking. I went to my primary care physician in September, who referred me to a shoulder surgeon. Prior to the consult, I was required to have an MRI. I received the definitive diagnosis at the first consultation with the surgeon in early December 2007. He showed me the torn tendons on the images, explained the surgical procedure that would repair the injury. Before I knew it, I was scheduled for surgery for 12/21. One week prior to surgery, I ran into a friend who is a massage therapist, who I'd known for several years as someone who was progressive her holistic health. She encouraged me to postpone the surgery, and try acupuncture. I was reserved in my expectations but was open to an alternative to facing 2 weeks surgical recovery, 6 weeks with my arm in a sling and 4-6 months of physical therapy."

I started weekly acupuncture with Brad Hill in early January - June 2008. He shared several testimonials from other patients he has treated with similar and different concerns. I learned immediately that acupuncture not only treats the injury but the whole person and that he would help me by directing my own healing energy toward my shoulder. Not only did my shoulder begin to improve, but my energy, both physically and mentally was invigorated. Brad incorporated some Chinese Herbs specifically to aid in directing healing energy to my shoulder, which did enhance the healing and my overall sense of wellness. My ability to focus began to improve and the treatments also helped me address addiction issues that I had to cope with stress. I joined a health club and started spinning 2-3 times/week as well as strength training. I consulted with a trainer at the club to strengthen my shoulder, which resulted in my being able to kayak and do all the activities I love to do. I am now taking a Chinese herbal prescription by Brad to address some tolerance/behavior issues.

The entire acupuncture experience has been positive. I never experience any pain or fear. My life has been enhanced in many ways. I plan to continue seeing Brad at least once a month. I always feel physically and emotionally better and Brad always takes the time to learn what is currently going on with me. -Mary


Acid Reflux and General Wellness:

As a professional in the health-care field, I thought that taking medications for my acid reflux was the answer. But when the medications were making me ill, I had to find an alternative and Acupuncture seemed my best option. When I met Brad, I found him to be very approachable, compassionate, and understanding of all of my problems. Since my first treatment, I have been free of acid reflux and have achieved good health in other problem areas. Brad's Acupuncture seemed to be right on target for me and I was always happy to see him.

Brad Hill has been a God-send to my overall health, in particular my Acid Reflux and Fibromyalgia. He was right away a most gracious, compassionate, and personable guy who seemed to understand me beyond the words that I said. I was lucky to have found him.

Brad stands above most practitioners in the alternative health field. He is very intelligent, perceptive, and compassionate all with a smile and a kind word. My health has greatly improved with his treatments, and it's always a pleasure to receive a treatment. I'd recommend him to anyone for diagnosis and treatment without the use of drugs or surgery.

Brad cured my Acid Reflux in just a few treatments, all with a smile and kind words that were exactly what I needed to hear. He is very perceptive, intuitive and kind and was able to help me with other health problems in a non-invasive, feel-good way. -Anonymous


Allergies and General Wellness:

When I'm in pain... call Brad. I remember when my favorite dog died... my friend Harriet pulled me out of bed and brought me to your office. After spending an hour with you, I was able to function... grieve... but able to get on with my life. Also for the first time in my life (and remember I am old) not to have any allergy symptoms... Wow, that is monumental! So Brad, thank you for taking care of me and introducing me to another way of healing. I appreciate you sharing your wisdom and advice. -Ilene
