I have been a long time patient of Brian’s. I started seeing him for infertility issues in 2006. Brian addressed my hormonal imbalance, diet & lifestyle. I was pregnant within weeks and gave birth to a very healthy girl in 2007! In 2015, I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma and turned to Brian for help. He has seen me through a Stem Cell transplant, chemotherapy and remission. Brian’s expertise with knowing what one’s body needs is amazing. He stimulates my immune system and helps fight off fatigue. Brian is an extremely talented acupuncturist-5 stars for sure!!!
Finding Brian Whidden was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I really did know much about acupuncture, but I knew western medicine wasn't doing enough for me on it's own. I had been being treated for bipolar 1 disorder for over twenty years, was really sick with a stomach disease, and had been in bed for two years with fibromyalgia. I was almost out of hope, but then I started my journey towards wellness with Brian.
I felt great results from the acupuncture right away, but the most profound results came exactly six months into the process. I was out of bed and moving without the stabbing pains, my digestion was improving, my mood was leveling off, and my cystic acne was completely gone!
He has taught me so much about nutrition, my body and mind, and my everyday interactions with this crazy world we are living in. He is so down to earth, amazing to talk to, and he is incredibly knowledgeable about how to achieve health and wellness. My mind, body, and soul are so much better better off because of Brian Whidden. He is extraordinary!
I would like to relay my wholehearted shining endorsement for the therapeutic practice of the Acupuncture and Herbal Center in Kingston, MA. I am a physician (MD) who was recommended to the care of Brian Whidden at the Center following a spinal fusion surgery for intractable pain due to sciatic nerve damage. In addition to the more traditional Western medicine modalities of physical therapy, medicinal injections, and core strengthening, it was suggested to complement with acupuncture and herbal remedies.
To date, this has been the best decision I have made with respect to my personal care. I have received regular treatments under Brian’s care for the past two and a half years for my chronic pain and for stress management. Following treatment, I am a different person. Most sessions, I am able to achieve an altered state of “awareness” with the attendant tranquility that calms all systems. Brian is a tremendous listener and tailors the treatments to the needs of the “now,” such that the experience is always unique and frequently amazing. I have dabbled a bit in the herbal arena, but mostly have achieved therapeutic benefit from the acupuncture experience alone.
Having a rigorous educational background in Western medicine, I confess not to understand much of the “science” behind the practice, and I have an interest but do not have a deep academic understanding of the mind/body relationship in healing, but I can vouch for the experience. It is real and it is game changing! Andy K.MD
