What Patients are Saying

This testimony is from the heart. I had severe vision loss overnight due to macular degeneration. The acupuncture treatments that I have received from Gail Brent, L.Ac., have been a blessing.

I woke up on January 30, 2004, and could not see my face in the mirror, nor see the time, nor see the numbers or settings on the kitchen appliances, nor make a phone call, nor read my Bible. I could hardly see many other things.

The acupuncture treatments have been a very big help in every category ranging from seeing pretty well to being able to make things out. I can even see TV well from 2 feet away. With more treatments, I will see even better. To see is everything.
