I've been coming here for over a year and a half and it's worth the short drive to Brookfield. I had been dealing with a stressful job and aging parents and found that I was unable to get quality sleep. With just the first treatment (which was completely painless, and I hate needles) I felt as relaxed as if I'd had a 90 minute massage, but at considerably less expense and I slept like a baby that night. Regular treatments have greatly helped with stress and sleeping which had a side benefit of overall better health this year. I'm still surprised how much it calms me. Ed is a great practitioner - very knowledgeable and caring.

I started going to Brookfield Acupuncture Center to take my life back from my weekly migraines. They were very debilitating and I heard that acupuncture could help get rid of them. Ed Herrera was very helpful and started me on acupuncture treatments but also herbal supplements. The combination of these two things has really helped to keep my migraines down to having only one a month or even less. Ed Herrera is very kind and has a great bedside manner. I would highly recommend Brookfield Acupuncture Center. The care I have received is exemplary.

I highly recommend the services of Brookfield Acupuncture and certified practitioner Eduardo Herrera. While the location is convenient, the reception area welcoming, and the patient rooms clean and comfortable, the best reward is getting a true expert in both acupuncture and tuina, the Chinese massage or acupressure equivalent of acupuncture. Eduardo is very attentive in listening to your concerns and assessing your body’s conditions, and he is comforting and gentile in application of the techniques targeted to address them. In my case, that was sinus/allergy, cardio vascular, back, and dealing with general anxiety. After an initial assessment, Eduardo applies his in-depth knowledge, and alternates or adjusts procedures over time in order to align with short or long-term goals. There is a wonderful feeling of relief and calm after a session, in addition to getting the targeted benefits. I am most happy that I found a such a personable, cheerful, positive, caring, and knowledgeable individual to enhance my general health.

I have been going to see Edwardo Herrera MS, Dipl. L AC for about two years. Initially, I had gone to see him for severe back pain that I was having. Not receiving any relief from pain medications I had received from my personal physician, I decided to try a more natural approach. My first visit to Brookfield Acupuncture was a great experience. Edwardo was very professional and knowledgeable. His combination of treatments eased the pain to a point where I could stop the pain medication given to me by my physician. What I found extremely helpful was a form of gentle massage therapy he did, and continues to do, called tunia. Having had both shiatsu and acupressure at various times, tunia seemed to be a combination of them both. I felt as if the treatment was healing both on a physical and energetic level.My chronic back issues are basically gone! Edwardo is very friendly and is great at what he does! If pain relief is what you seek, I would strongly recommend visiting Brookfield Acupuncture Center for any acute or chronic condition you are having.

I originally visited Brookfield Acupuncture because it was recommended that I go to help me stop smoking. My experience has been excellent! I stop smoking immediately after my first visit and I have been smoke free ever since. Also I have received acupuncture therapy for other issues. Ed is a great!

Ed at Brookfield Acupuncture is fantastic. He is incredibly knowledgeable and he has helped me tremendously. I have never done acupuncture before and I was a little nervous at our first meeting, but he put me immediately at ease. I have had 2 sessions with him and I am feeling great! Whether your goal is to reduce your stress, lose weight, quit a habit like smoking or drinking, etc., Ed can help you! I highly recommend Brookfield Acupuncture!

Mr. Herrerra was more than thorough. I expected for him to put in the needles and be gone. Much of my experience with other acupuncturist. But he asked questions, made note of the points and why he was putting needles there. He finally applied a heating lamp and electric laser to enhance the therapy. He applied K-tapes to keep the muscles wrapped. I came in hobbling and left feeling no pain. It was the exact remedy I had been seeking. I will think of going to no other acupuncturist ever again after that experience.

Ed has been treating my husband's tendonitis in his shoulders for a couple of months. After just a couple sessions, he showed dramatic improvement! Ed was able to help where the primary doctor and over the counter stuff couldn't. Highly recommend!!

After years of chronic neck and shoulder pain from a spinal condition, I had enough pain pills and muscle relaxers for a life time. Even physical therapy wasn't working very well. I consider myself a pretty practical guy and I didn't believe in non-western medicine. Then I went to Ed on a recommendation and it really helped. He helped me a lot! I have only one regret and that's that I didn't go to him sooner I could have saved myself a lot of pain and aggravation. Go to Ed he can help!

I have been a patient of acupuncture for the last seven years in Austin TX and Illinois, which has allowed me to compare services and care. Brookfield Acupuncture Center, has been among one of the best services. Eduardo Herrera, always attentive to both my discomforts, as well as his courteous and professional manner to give service. Allergies and other muscular ailments have been improved thanks to the attention and patience of Mr. Herrera, who always attends with courtesy and dedication to each of his patients. In addition the location of the place in the center of Brookfield, Illinois makes the place accessible from all points of the city. Liz Quan

This is a convenient location with a confortable and friendly atmosphere. Licenced acupuncturist Ed Herrera is personable, taking great care to listen to his patients. Should you be interested in using supplements in addition to acupuncture or other treatments offered here, Ed is able to advise and provide suggestions and the products. Having received acupuncture here (and previously in Japan) over time, I understand the many benefits. I would certainly recommend contacting the center to discuss options and schedule an appointment.

Ed is very talented in his craft and takes the time to understand exactly what you need. I started seeing him for something else. When we discussed my essential tremors I asked if he could help. He did his research and when I came back we started treatment. The improvement is amazing. Nice clean office and soothing music. I would highly recommend Brookfield Acupuncture to all of my friends.

Ed is a wonderful acupuncturist. He cured my neck pain. Now I’m on to curing my leg pain. I’ve known Ed for over 10 years. He is very smart and very knowledgeable. I would recommend Brookfield acupuncture. Ed is a lifesaver. I give five stars!!

I tried Brookfield acupuncture after my acupuncturist moved too far away. I was looking for somebody that could help me with a pinched nerve. The minute I talked to Ed Herrera I felt that he had my best interest at heart. . At the first visit I was impressed at how much he cared about all my other health issues as well as my back problem. He also keeps in contact with you to make sure that you are doing well. He has solved a few of my back problems and a couple other problems that I did not even mention to him . He is very thorough and professional and cares about your overall health. I am so happy that I finally found an acupuncturist that can help me like my old one did. I would highly recommend him.

I highly recommend an acupuncture session with Ed. He has been able to help out with my back pain. I'm glad I found this place and of course I have been back for follow-up sessions to keep the back in check. He was very thorough with me regarding my pain. Keep up the good work Ed.
