I initially was introduced to Brian by my Massage Therapist who recommended Acupuncture to treat painful menstrual cycle symptoms. I had never tried Acupuncture before and was hesitant to do so - the idea of tiny needles tapped in to my body didn't initially ignite a feeling of relief. However, she insisted that I reach out to him and at least learn more.
Brian was more than generous in his quick email responses to my million and one questions and invited me in to try a treatment. His technique was indescribably soothing and his friendly sense of humor relaxed my nervousness. I now find myself a loyal patient of Brian’s, thankful for his vast knowledge of the human anatomy and ancient healing techniques. -R.G.
So long Sciatica
A co-worker recommended Brian to me. I have been struggling with sciatic pain for close to two years. Somehow I thought that acupuncture could not help me because I have a slipped disc in my lower back.
I've tried a chiropractor, two injections and no relief. So I thought why not give this a shot. Literally! Well after listening to Brian’s story, I had hope.
Brian did suggest that 6 to 8 treatments would probably be needed. After 6 treatments, I must say the pain is very manageable. No more meds, and I've even stating to go back to the gym! I also have to say that my job requires me to be on my feet all day and breaking down loads.
Brian is a kind and wise person. I would highly recommend him. Thank you Brian

Dee Less Stress
I wasn't sure what to expect with acupuncture, but I have had a few treatments and it does make me feel much better--less stressed, calm, etc. Brian does a good job of interviewing the patient to find out how he can help.
Try it--you too will be a believer!
Brian is awesome! By far the best prices in the Naperville area, and he is fantastic. He takes the time out to really listen to you and understand your needs. I have seen him a few times now and am already hooked. He is helping my back/neck pain, and cleared my sinuses last week. I would recommend him to anybody seeking inexpensive, EFFECTIVE alternative treatment. THANK YOU BRIAN! =)
Jill and Headaches
I have suffered for years with chronic migraines. Within 3 sessions, I could tell a significant difference in both frequency and intensity of my headaches. Not only that, but I now sleep through the night and do not wake up every 2 hours. Brian has done a great job, and I would highly recommend him!

Highly Recommend! I see Brian for back pain, stomach issues, headaches and stress. He is incredible! I didn't have a whole lot of faith in acupuncture before trying it, but I was so sick and desperate to get pain relief. I noticed the benefits from the 1st appointment. I would highly recommend Brian!

I came to Brian with a "host of medical issues". We began our treatment with a focus on weight management. I have been receiving his services for 2 months and have seen a significant amount of improvement. The 1st week after treatment..... I had not urged to eat out of control. I soon discovered that the foods I have been eating have caused me to suffer with painful inflammation throughout my body. Brian educated me on what foods I should incorporate into my diet. I am now moving towards a gluten free way of life. Brian is able to answer my questions and is VERY knowledgeable in this area.
People come up to me now and say.... WOW you look great... What are you doing.... and I say "Acupuncture".
Go for it.... it really works and is so healthy for your well being.
Kept me working
I had severe back pain that would keep me from doing my work as an auto mechanic.
The doctor told me to start to look for a new profession, and I would have to take off more days.
I met Brian, he told me a similar story about his back pain, so I was a bit skeptical but I didn't have much to lose.
Treatments went very well; the progress gave me real hope felt great to be me again.
I highly recommend coming to see Brian, he has helped me out and now I am training to become a firefighter!
I'd like to thank Brian for all his work.
Ed's herniated back
My name is Ed and I herniated my back over a year ago.
I went from being bed ridden to hunched over a walker.
The Pain Doctor took the conservative approach to avoid back surgery with a series of epidural shots and physical therapy.
This provided some relief, but I was in constant pain and my hip and back were not getting better.
Eventually, I had surgery to expand the opening where the sciatic nerve goes through the spine.
Four months after surgery, the hip pain was relieved, but I had nerve pain from my left thigh to my ankle.
My leg was stiff and I had to walk hunched over to compensate for the left leg pain.
The Pain Doctor recommended a Spinal Cord Stimulation System which involved surgically implanting
a wire under the skin of the leg with a electrical plus generator attached to my hip. The pulse
generator would deliver pain-masking electrical signal to spinal cord.
I felt that I needed to try something less evasive, so I looked into acupuncture. My first visit to the Acupuncturist,
Brian Musial , I was walking stiff legged and my upper body bent over at 30 degree angle. In addition, I was on
pain medication that slurred my speech.
After a couple of treatments, I was walking straight up and I didn’t need the pain medication.
Brian has advanced to using electrically stimulation to the muscle with the acupuncture procedure.
My Pain Doctor as an advocate for using Acupuncture for pain management, so was very happy with this
approach because he felt acupuncture could stimulate deeper in the muscle than he could without surgery.
With loosening up the muscle, I am finally back exercising to build up strength in my legs.
Needless to say, I am very happy with Brian Musial, Acupuncturist, and would highly recommend his treatment for pain.
