Brian is so comfortable to talk to about things that I have not been able to talk to others about before, that are now plaguing my health. He understands & is very insightful! He has fantastic perspective & is well educated in his field. His skills are AMAZING & well worth the out of pocket expense

Brian is a true professional and master in his work. He spends the time to get to know you as an individual and his work is tailored to your specific needs. His work is gentle and powerful at the same time. I felt the positive affects of his work for days after and highly recommend him!

I find Brian a miracle worker. For someone like me who is cynical about alternative therapies, I have been totally transformed with his work. I highly recommend him. Jon Sass

I've been seeing Brian for a few years now and have never been so happy that we met. My visits are of the wellness type. Brian has kept me on an even keel and well balanced.
