After suffering (well over 2 years) from debilitating menopause symptoms - such as hot flashes, being weepy all the time and terribly moody, in addition to horrendous insomnia, I saw Dr. Shams Wesley. After only 3 treatments I have had complete relief, it is truly amazing!!!
Dr. Wesley was wonderful to work with...I cannot overstate how professional, gracious and caring everyone was, not to mention the gorgeous decor and treatment rooms. I am eternally grateful to Dr. Wesley...I finally have my life back!!!
I would not be pregnant right now if it were not for Shams. My husband and I tried to get pregnant on our own for about two years and then started seeing an infertility specialist in August 2011. I was diagnosed with PCOS appearing ovaries, but all other tests showed nothing wrong. They tried medicine regulate my cycles, then we moved into hormones, and finally we tried two unsuccessful rounds of IUIs in January and February of 2012. Although I liked the people at the office, I was tired of the hormones, blood work, and doctor's visits and decided to take a break from everything.
Then in July I decided to try acupuncture with Shams. One of the nurses had recommended acupuncture when I decided to take a break, and I liked Shams' website and approach. My first appointment was July 14, 2012 and I immediately felt comfortable and cared for. She focused not just on my body, but also on my mental and emotional roadblocks to pregnancy. I had one more appointment with her before I went on vacation - and we conceived while on vacation!!! Of course we didn't find out until weeks later, which included more treatments and support from Shams, but it was such a blessing to be able to celebrate our miracle. Like I said, I am completely convinced that we would not be pregnant without her and I am so grateful for her support - she listens, she advises, and she does not judge. I would recommend her to anyone struggling with infertility!
I came to Shams after suffering an ectopic pregnancy. I was scared and confused, not too sure of the next steps. Shams was knowledgeable, comforting, and helpful during those first few months. She let me know what was going on in my body and calmed my fears, helping me understand what my body was doing to heal and what I should and shouldn't be doing as I progressed towards trying to conceive again.
In my weekly sessions, Shams would listen and assess my progress with patience and knowledge, administering the acupuncture in various spots depending on her assessment.
Once I was able to start trying for a baby again, it took just a few months before we conceived! I am at 10 weeks, and still visiting Shams to maintain a healthy pregnancy. Her aptitude for fertility acupuncture and ability to help us get beyond the ectopic and into a healthy pregnancy will never be forgotten.
