Shasta Tierra and Way of Wellness are awesome! I have been a patient of Shasta’s at Way of Wellness since 6/2008. I was referred to her by a friend then and have never left her since. My original 1st ever acupuncture treatment was for relief of symptoms from Cancer treatment, and I have continued going to keep my body in balance overall. As of 1/2011 our insurance has changed certain coverage and providers, but I chose to stay on with Shasta at Way of Wellness. We worked out a great deal, not much more than my original co-pay, and I continue to come to her even more than the traditional medical doctor’s The treatment I receive from her is like no other. She is an inspiration and a provider that really cares for her patients.
“I came in with aching joints all over (fibromyalgia), numbness in hands, fatigue, uncontrollable appetite, chronic constipation, stuffy nose, burning dry eyes, and low energy. I was treated for about 13 weeks, pretty much once a week. I lost an excess seven pounds, feel much warmer, and most of the other symptoms are greatly dissipated or gone. Acupuncture has been the best treatment for me that I could imagine. The information I have gained will remain important forever.
“I had had chronic constipation since college, sometimes I would go for weeks at a time without a good movement. I also had candida, bloating, sore legs, and susceptibility to lots of flu’s and colds. I was also 20 pounds over weight. I had eaten fast foods most of my life and really was ready to make a change, especially because I wanted to get pregnant and be healthy for that. I came in to see Shasta once a week for about 11 weeks, during which time I changed my diet, lost 15 pounds, and regulated my bowel movements. I feel stronger and healthier for the first time in a long time. Then, to my surprise I discovered I was PREGNANT which really surprised me because I had tried for a year or so before with no avail, and wasn’t sure if I would ever be able to get pregnant! Now I’m dealing with a new problem, morning sickness, but I’m very, very happy. Thanks for everything”
Before & After
After drinking a power drink at the club, I had a severe allergic reaction. I had hives that would get worse after eating. I had heart palpitations, twisting pains in the intestines, stabbing pains over the liver, and difficulty in having bowel movements. During the acupuncture treatment I felt the itchiness and burning calm down and a sense of well being that I hadn’t experienced for days, and within a few days the hives were completely gone.
