When I first came in I had severe sciatica and herniated discs, (which the M.D.’s wanted to fuse together), I was in so much pain that I could hardly walk. I was also forty five pounds overweight.
When Shasta asked me how do you think this happened? I said I thought that driving from Santa Cruz to San Jose for work everyday was literally “a pain in my rear” and went on to say how much I really hated the drive and wished I could work at home. I also mentioned that being in Kauai really seemed to help my back and if I could have anything I’d wish for a job where I could work at home, and a home in Kauai where I could work also.
I made a deliberate commitment to delve into my own personal healing, whatever it took – mind, body, and spirit. With Shasta’s advice I altered my diet to the appropriate foods for my constitution and symptoms, got regular bodywork – acupuncture, massage, chiropractic, and exercise, little by little my body began to heal. Within ten months I’ve lost forty five pounds, the pain is gone, I run for up to one hour on the beach and surf like I did when I was twenty. This in itself is amazing, but out of my commitment to listen to my body I applied for a new job ($15,000 more then previous job) and got it with free range to work out of my home in Santa Cruz or Kauai. I then set out to find a house in Kauai where I really wanted to live, bought it and now work in both place!
I truly believe that when we do what’s good for the body, and stop what’s bad, the body will heal itself. We just have to get out of it’s way.


A friend of mine referrred us to Dr. Shasta.  Before seeing her, we worked with infertility specialist for ovr a year and they were unable to find the problem.  Infertility treatments imbalanced my hormones and worsen my health.  Dr. Shasta worked with me using acupuncture to cleanse my body to balance my hormones.  I followed her dietary [lan and supplements to nourish my body.  After receiving her acupuncture services for four months, we are expecting our first baby.  Dr. Shasta is very knowledgeable, cordial, compassionate and always willing to go the extra mile to provide excellent care to her patients.  We cannot thank Dr. Shasta enough for her professional services. -Kiran K.
