You helped me be the healthiest version of myself!

Hi Shasta, These are our special, super hard to have babies. They required a lot of help but are worth every ounce of wait and all the effort that went into bringing them into the world. Carsen 4.5, Parker 1.5 years. In prep for getting ready to conceive Carsen I saw you 3 times a week for about a year and then all through the pregnancy. You helped me be the healthiest version of myself. Nutrition, fitness, and acupuncture. Maybe most important was the ability to disconnect and relax, to be in a better state of mind, more balanced – my life and work run at 110% most of the time. It was an incredible experience. Parker was a little different, I saw you in prep to get pregnant. Once I conceived through IVF, we had terrible news regarding her health and retracted to my home. Most of the pregnancy, it was a long journey and we didn’t know she was okay and viable until 20 weeks. She was born perfect with zero health issues. She is such an amazing blessing.

I originally came to Dr. Shasta for help with my thyroid problem and ended up becoming pregnant right around the same time. She explained how thyroid issues can lead to improper pregnancy hormone levels and potential miscarriage. With her help, I had a very easy and healthy pregnancy. Dr. Shasta is extremely professional, kind, and gentle. I’m so happy to have met her!

Shasta is very nurturing, caring and very passionate about what she does!

I went to see Shasta because I was trying to get pregnant and I needed her help and expertise due to my infertility issue. I truly believe she helped me get pregnant and she helped me maintain a healthy pregnancy (I am due any day now). Shasta was recommended to me by 2 other women who had infertility issues and shasta helped both of them to each have a beautiful, healthy child. I have found Shasta keeps the medical office clean and sterile, yet it is very calming and relaxing environment. Shasta is very nurturing, caring and very passionate about what she does. She also was a great help with the emotional side of trying to get pregnant and more confident through my pregnancy. I highly recommend Shasta to any women who is trying to get pregnant, whether you are having infertility issues or not, she is amazing and can help you get pregnant and stay healthy throughout your pregnancy.

Shasta has been a great, she has a wealth of knowledge!

I found Shasta via Groupon when I was looking for an acupuncturist to help me because I had been diagnosed with hypothyroid after years of struggle with my weight, I finally had an answer but wanted more than medication. Shasta has been a great, she has a wealth of knowledge on this and has helped me so much. I have been going to her for acupuncture for about a year now. I don’t go as often as in the beginning, but it had been worth my hard-earned money to get healthy the natural way.

For over a year my wife and I struggled with conception. We had no positive home-pregnancy tests whatsoever, & boy do we know the disappointment! We were confident we had mastered diet and nutrition, so we were particularly surprised at our struggle. The stars aligned and my wife met Dr. Shasta and she knew she had to try her acupuncture protocol. After just six sessions and one cycle later, we have our baby on the way!!!

We cannot thank enough Dr. Shasta for her professional service!

A friend of mine referred us to Dr. Shasta. Before seeing her, we worked with infertility specialist for over 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 clean my body to balance my hormones. I followed her dietary plan and supplements to nourish my body. After receiving her acupuncture services for four months, we are to go the extra mile to provide excellent care to her patients. We cannot thank enough Dr. Shasta for her professional service.

Dr. Shasta is truly God sent!

My fiancé and I had been trying to conceive for 6 months and I was diagnosed with infertility without any explanation. By fate, I found Dr. Shasta on Yelp and right away I was able to schedule a free 15 minute consultation with her the very next day. She was very informative and direct in regards to her approach, treatment, and cost. During my first appointment she gave me such hope that everything would be okay and my diagnosis wasn't final as there are many other factors (hormones, stress, diet, etc) that can be causing a delay in getting pregnant. Her words came into existence because I am now 3 months pregnant!! My one on one's with her along with acupuncture treatment twice a week made such a difference in how I felt physically and emotionally. I began treatment in February and by mid February I was pregnant. I can't say enough about Dr. Shasta. She is very knowledgeable, caring, and has a calming spirit to her. She truly cares about her patients and goes the extra mile to provide helpful advice and care. I am still treating with her now 1-2 a week as her holistic and acupuncture approach has really made a difference in my health and has dramatically brought my stress levels down! Thank you Dr. Shasta we could not have done this without your care and support.

I highly recommend Shasta for anyone who is trying to conceive!

I went to Dr. Shasta Ericson at Way of Wellness for acupuncture for a shoulder injury. I immediately felt comfortable working with Shasta as she was very personable and encouraging and had a wealth of knowledge to share with me. While I was going there, I learned that she specialized in fertility acupuncture. My husband abs I had been trying to conceive for two years before seeking help from Shasta. I found Shasta’s diet recommendation and weekly treatment to be helpful as I prepared to conceive. After receiving treatment for about six months, we were finally able to conceive a beautiful baby boy. I highly recommend Shasta for anyone who is trying to conceive. Her caring demeanor and professionalism can make a difficult situation be more bearable.

No matter what’s going on with your body, Shasta + acupuncture = results!

After one failed round of IVF, I sought the help and support of Shasta. Determined to do everything I could to make the second round of IVD work, acupuncture was a natural addition, especially with the research touting the myriad benefits of acupuncture. For about three months, before during and after the second IVF cycle, Shasta worked her magic in me regularly-up to three times per week. During each session, my focus was on the end results- being pregnant. After the treatments, I felt calm, centered, peaceful, and was in a stress-less state. On the days when I didn’t see Shasta, I continued to meditate and this helped me decompress and remain focused on becoming pregnant. The end result? Acupuncture worked! On October 20, 2009 my twins were born. I carried the babies to term-a full 39 weeks and two days and even managed to “power walk” and ride a bicycle the day before I gave birth (yes, that was crazy, I know!) Acupuncture works and Shasta Ericson L.A.c. is an incredible acupuncturist. She’s super knowledgeable, has a gentle spirit, is kind and loving and is connected to her clients. No matter what’s going on with your body, Shasta + acupuncture = results.

I highly recommend Dr. Shasta for all her services!

I have been visiting Dr. Shasta for my reflux and GI issues for over 6 months now. She has many awesome qualities of being of kind, patient and gentle that go a long way in healing illnesses and gaining good health. She is very knowledgeable and her treatment works from the get go! She is very encouraging and brings lots of positivity to the healing, which works wonders! My thyroid and GI related health issues started 5 years back and she has improved my health to a level that no other specialist has ever came close to ( and I’ve seen serval different states and countries.) I also had food sensitivities that developed a few months before and they were all resolved after Dr. Shasta’s treatment started! Dr. Shasta has helped me with my hyperthyroidism and my TSH levels are normal now! I have also been able to gain weight finally. I also had problems with a an irregular cycle. All thanks to Dr. Shasta this issue was also resolved quickly and she helped me achieve pregnancy within no time! I highly recommend Dr. Shasta for all her services!

Thank you so much for all your help Dr. Shasta!

I ghly recommend Dr. Shasta. I came here as last resort. After two miscarriages at age 38 with bad tests results (high FSA and low AMH) The western medicine had recommended IVF at this point but I wanted to try something different. Dr. Shasta has a set program for me. I followed all her recommendations and few months into the treatment, I was pregnant naturally. Thank you so much for all your help Dr. Shasta!

I would recommend her to anyone!

A bit of background before the road to acupuncture. I have been going through fertility treatments for more than 8 months. During those 8 months, I have experienced a great deal of stress and weight gain due to 3 failed ILJls as well as a failed egg retrieval during IVF. After the failed IVF cycle, I was referred to Dr. Shasta by my fertility clinic and what a difference it has made in me both emotionally and physically. I have been seeking treatment for the last 2 weeks and the majority of my stress has been reduced. Dr. Shasta also put me on a specialized diet which I have been following and I have already lost 10 pounds! I love seeing her and looking forward to working with her as I start my second IVF round later this month. Hoping for a different result and definitely feeling mentally more prepared thanks to her. I would recommend her to anyone.
