I had read about benefits of QST massage on children with autism and hyperactivity. I found Jill's practice through google search and booked sessions with her.
Jill was amazing with our daughter and with us. She has a lot of knowledge, is incredibly caring and spends a lot of time training and advising you so you learn to not only give the massage but be able to read and listen to your child's needs. She helped us every step of the way and was always there to answer any question we had. The impact this massage has/had on our daughter has been the greatest achievement of this whole process. She used to get very angry and frustrated and has now become a happy, cheeky, smiley child. She still has tantrums now and then but has learnt to control them much better by soothing herself in various ways before it becomes a full blown tantrum. I cant thank Jill enough for her support, her patience and her dedication to our daughter. I would highly recommend Jill to anyone with a child that is autistic or with a sensory disorder. It’s been a little over 12 weeks and the results have been astounding. This massage has become a daily routine in our household and we all really enjoy it. We will happily keep going!
I came into contact with Ms. Jill Brown after coming to the Netherlands in the year 2020. I have two (2) boys - 9 years and 7 years who were diagnosed with autism/ADHD with sensory and Gut/Digestive issues.
We came to Jill with our 6-year-old son because of his overstimulation, anger and difficulty expressing emotions. The beginning was hard work, a child who would rather not have this massage every day. But after a few weeks we saw extraordinary jumps. He visibly relaxed after the massage, was able to express himself better, including his emotions. He managed to pull himself out of difficult situations, anger decreased and empathy increased. A moving result. We are so glad we found Qigong massage and Jill and persevered. In addition to the massage, Jill gives advice in a pleasant way so that you go through the process together. It's a shame that QST is so unknown, because it gives you something that will do your child and the whole family good.
Once you start to realise that your child has sensory processing issues it can be difficult to find people to take you seriously and to offer help, rather than simply dismissing you or suggesting that there is little that can be done. Equally difficult, is finding ways in which you can help your child beyond just taking them to occupational therapy.
Ik kwam bij Jill vanwege spijsverteringsklachten (IBS) en bekkenbodemklachten. Jill heeft me ten eerste geholpen de pijnklachten aanzienlijk te verminderen, ten tweede heeft ze me laten inzien hoe ik mijn levensstijl kon aanpassen om de problemen verder op te lossen. Behalve het fysieke gedeelte van het probleem heeft ze ook me ook op mentaal gebied enorm geholpen; haar holistische aanpak en nauwkeurige behandelplan hebben mijn kwaliteit van leven enorm verbeterd.
In a short period of 10 weeks, for 1 hour per week, Jill taught us a simple 15'-a-day technique to use at home that changed our lives! Everyone involved in the process, both parents and child, became calmer, more confident versions of themselves. I urge every parent and every therapist to try QST massage technique in general and seek the help of Jill in particular. She guided us through every step offering valuable insight.
Jill did several treatments on me over a 3-month period. These treatments included acupuncture sessions for my immune system improvement, lower back and shoulder pain relief, with combination of tuina and cupping. She also looked at my overall health and looked for body signs in order to trace the source of the symptoms. I would highly recommend Jill for her methodology, holistic approach, attention and care, as I have never experienced these with any western medicine doctor or GP who sees you for 15 minutes and prescribes paracetamol almost immediately.
I can highly recommend Jill. She has helped me tremendously in managing a severe case of tinnitus (noise exposure). She takes time to listen to you and agree on a plan. She has gone above and beyond pure acupuncture to review my life style and diet, which I have adjusted accordingly with good results. Two thumbs up.
I have known Jill for a very long time with a lot of respect and admiration to her special, very human personality.
Totally amazed at how Jill's treatment has helped with headaches that I've had on a weekly basis for many years. Following various failed prescription treatments I started acupuncture without too much expectation, but even after just a few treatments I noticed the difference. 6 headache-free weeks later I'm still astounded and on a separate note Jill has also helped with some digestion problems. Next to the clearly beneficial treatments, Jill is an extremely friendly, trustworthy and in general lovely person. I cannot give her a higher recommendation.
I’ve been forced to use painkillers each month ever since I remember (or since i stepped into womanhood) and after acupuncture with Jill I got my first pain-free period! Definitely a feeling worth holding on to…
Due to an immune deficiency that’s been bothering me throughout my entire adult life not only my health has been going up and down, so have my energy levels and my spirit.

Jill is a very warm person. She is very understanding and a great listener.
During the treatment of Jill I felt very calm and safe. Her understanding and quiet appearance is very pleasant. The acupuncture was a special experience where I sometimes felt energy flow and sometimes fell asleep. Which gave both a good feeling. Afterwards I felt more energetic and less stressed!
I was treated by Jill for PMS pain and I was also feeling stressed.
