Thank you Chad for helping me stay healthy and racing at my best.
Thank you Mr. Bong for your help in getting my hamstring back strong and healthy.
Thank you for keeping me running after over 80,000 miles of running.
Chad Bong was a huge factor in helping me have a great performance, 2:11:53 and a 7th place finish, at the 2012 Olympic marathon trials. His acupuncture techniques were used often in my build up in the prior months to the big race. Chad was dedicated enough to our relationship that he flew to Houston were theOlympic trials took place and made sure my body was at my best all the way up to the start of the race. Anyone who is able to work with Chad is a lucky person, you will be in good hands.”

As a national level competitor in olympic style weightlifting, who has athletic history including collegiate tennis, triathlons, and cross fit, sports injuries are nothing new to me. After a suffering a forearm/elbow injury I spent 5 months seeing a myriad of doctors and therapists with no improvement. With 3 months to go before the American Open Weightlifting Championships I had my first appointment with Chad. He was the first person to understand the exercises that I was doing and that as a competitive athlete I could not just take the next 6 months off. I was very skeptical about acupuncture and massage, but a few week later I was lifting pain free. I was able to compete in the American Open where I finished in 13th place. Thanks Chad.

Several running related injuries prevented me from participating in the 2009 Boston Marathon. After months of physical therapy and a cortizone injection, I thought my running days were over. After starting my sessions with Chad, I have not had to cut one workout short. I credit him with keeping me healthy and injury free this year through 3 marathons and a full IRONMAN Triathlon!!!!
