Acute Knee Pain:
One day in September 2008, as I was seeking relief from acute pain in my right knee, I knocked at Brad's door. This tall, gentle, courteous, welcoming gentleman, my future acupuncturist, invited me in.
Actually, during this initial visit, which lasted 2 hours, we engaged in a long detailed conversation concerning my physical symptoms, as well as my emotional and psychological state, my work and other lifestyle information. From this first encounter with Mr. Brad Hill, I sensed I was accepted for who I am, never felt judged. Then, as he unleashed the Chinese techniques to help my body heal itself, did I realize I had found a great treasure in this genuine "American Healer," this unforgettable person with a heart of compassion and understanding. And so I did not hesitate to request some advice on how to help some of my friends with their ailments. Mr. Hill is one who forgets himself and shows regard for the worth of others.
Moreover, he is a well-educated, calm, stable practitioner, always diligent, trying to do all tasks well and on time. Without exception he provides quality health care in a kind, tranquil manner. If you ever have a chance to deal with Mr. Hill, you will soon learn that he is one who is courteous, benevolent, and considerate. He has a distinct quality of being.
ONE LAST NOTE. My pain is gone. My right knee has been restored, is back in balance without side effects or surgery. I feel I have a new lease on life. -T.B.
Pain and Stress:
Curiosity was the reason I first decided to try acupuncture and it was results that kept me coming back for over two years. I am an Osteopathic Physician who appreciates the concept of mind, body and spirit medicine. The results that have occurred give me a great trust in Brad and his application of the therapy. I have experienced resolution of many middle-aged male aches and pains and no longer need to use Advil on a daily basis. Most importantly, I am a calmer person and don't feel like I am going to die anymore.
I have a professionally stressful life and during the past five years I have seen my marriage dissolving. The despair I felt was as if I was dying. After a few months of treatment with brad, I regained my balance of mind-body-spirit and the feelings dissipated. I am now receiving maintenance therapy and life is much richer. - Dr. J.R.
When we came to Brad my then 9 year old son had disciform keratitis (a corneal lesion) that had caused his blue eye to turn white like a marble. The specialist had told us he would be blind in that eye until adulthood when he would be a candidate for a corneal transplant. When Brad first saw J. he received him with such a gentleness and lovingness that I wept. We had been in so many sterile doctors offices. In those places fast paced physicians shuffled us from room to room, test to test and only spoke to me, the parent.
The minute Brad spoke to J. I felt he was finally receiving care. Non-phased by the dramatic look of my son's eye Brad looked at him. He was relaxed and calm. After a silent moment he said, 'Well, perhaps you will have one that looks out into the world and one that looks inward.' He was the first person to see things as they were... physician, family member or friend. His acceptance was a blessing. Working from there was a beautiful place to start.
Within two weeks J's eye was showing dramatic improvement, much to the surprise of his two corneal specialists. Over the first months his vision improved from 20/400 to 20/60 where it has remained for over a year.
The treatments Brad has given my son have not only been productive and successful but also are relaxed, pleasant visits with someone who cares about us. He always looks at J., asks him general and specific questions about his well being, but also about his baseball season and the like. I love Brad's holistic approach to health issues. I shudder to think what would have happened had J. not received his care. Loss of vision is one thing but loss of depth perception is not to be underestimated. This had already been the cause of a broken rib and bike accident. With restored vision and depth perception Jansen leads a full academic and athletic life. Brad is earnest yet lighthearted, pleasant company. I can't emphasize enough the value of having someone who puts the "care" in healthcare (and the health too for that matter). -Kate
