"On August 27, 2009 I came down with what is known as Bell's Palsy. A condition that affects the 7th cranial nerve and leaves one side of your face paralyzed. This happened two days after the birth of my third child. I was not only overwhelmed with the uncertainties of a newborn baby (& two other children) but was terrified that I was going to be permanently paralyzed.
When one is diagnosed with this illness the doctors can only tell you to be patient. It could be weeks or even years before you are back to normal. For myself, this was terrifying. What if I could never smile again?
So, I decided to research acupuncture. I heard many people finding success with it. A friend of mine recommended Brigette and told me she was wonderful. I gave her a call. She was so kind and agreed to see me right away. I was relieved that she knew about this condition and had success in healing people who had had it for many years.
Well, to my amazement my cheek began to move just three days after the first procedure. My husband was shocked! I was beyond amazed!
I did several more visits with Brigette until I had full functioning back with my face.
I firmly believe that Brigette healed me. I do not know what I would do if I hadn't met her (as I was at the lowest place that I have ever been.) She not only healed my face, she healed my spirit as well.
I would recommend anyone who has an ailment to seek out acupuncture with Brigette. She is a true healer and is an awesome gift to our community."
