  • Screen shot 2015-11-02 at 5.26.19 PMBrian helped me heal from an injury I feared I would never understand or overcome. When  I first came to Catch A Fish for treatment, I was barely able to perform even every day tasks due to a severely  immobilized spine. I was terrified - other practitioners (including  spine specialists, chiropractors, physical therapists, and other alternatives) had given up on how to help me.   Brian saw my case as a puzzle and was determined to  try to solve it. Not only did his acupuncture and shiatsu treatments offer direct and dramatic relief from pain with lasting effect, but he helped me recognize and understand the root causes of the problem as well as strategies for self-care. Now I am back to being able to do all the things I love to do – including dancing and hiking!. Brian is a true healer, and I am so thankful for his treatment and care. I cannot recommend his services highly enough.

  • I came to Brian with several longstanding issues: a bad back, tendinitis in my arm, and some deep, unrelenting feelings of sadness. Although previous treatments–massage and psychotherapy specifically–had offered some relief, nothing seemed to get to the heart of the matter. After working with Brian for several months, my back and tendinitis dissipated and the source of my sadness became clear. The combination of Brian’s extraordinary spirit and Catch a Fish’s Wellness plan  (which I had never done before) did the job. For this–and for Brian–I feel enormous gratitude.

  • Brian is a wonderful listener on all levels, both in hearing what I am experiencing and in taking pulses as a Chinese medicine practitioner. When he shares insights about my energy and suggestions for healing, I never feel criticized. Rather, I feel his kindness and generosity. Also, Brian is considerate and organized in tracking treatment progress and in scheduling appointments. -- Longtime Baltimore Client

  • I’ve been seeing Brian for over five years now, and he’s helped to improve my health–both mental and physical– in countless ways. While his work is something most westerners aren’t necessarily accustomed to, anyone from any background could benefit from his treatment. He’s one of the nicest, down to earth people I’ve met, and has become a good friend to me. Even after I moved across the country and stopped treatment, he still takes the time to write to me and give great advice, and help me along my way.

    My recommendation for Brian can’t come highly enough. His work is for anyone who’s interested in learning more about their body and mind, and coming into a place of better understanding of their health.
