Hua. You first treated me for plantar fasciitis a few years ago, and it was the only treatment that worked. Then you treated me for endometriosis during the IVF process. This is an update and huge thanks. We now have identical twin boys! This is because of you and your expertise! We owe you everything, and you will never know the joy that you have brought to us. We are now a family, something we thought we would never be. Once again, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you so very much.

NW, Erdington 

We had been trying to have children for 4.5 years. I booked with Hua Shen to have acupuncture treatments in the 2 months leading up to the IVF treatment. The unexpected benefit was that I felt alot less stressed after the first few weeks of treatment, with a more positive attitude to the IVF and less side effects from the drugs. Thankfully, the IVF worked, and we are pregnant with twins! I have carried on the treatment with Hua to have a happy pregnancy. I couldn't recommend Hua Shen enough, should you be going through something similar
HM, Edgbaston March 2016

My wife was diagnosed with intercranial hypertension. We heard about Hua Shen, and after 5 of her treatments, my wife felt 90% better. I would recommend Hua Shen, she is a genuine, caring and professional person. Thank you very much Hua!
LP, Birmingham Feb 2016 

I've been suffering from poor sleep and insomnia for several months and acupuncture from Hua Shen has really helped me improve my sleep and relax. I'd highly recommend Dr Shen to anyone suffering anxiety and sleeping disorder.
JG, Edgbaston Feb 2016
I would like to thank you for seeing me yesterday at your clinic and its was a great experience for me as I felt so much better soon after and currently after my first session.  It sure has relaxed me. Please let me know if you can arrange a treatment session for my wife too? Once again thanks for your treatment

Hua, We have success!. We got a positive pregnancy result this morning! I am sure your acupuncture treatment over the 2 months I came to you helped prepare my body for pregnancy and helped me to relax. Thank you so much. I will be coming to you for your pregnancy treatment program!.
LF Sutton Coldfield 

I first came to you, as my periods had stopped since coming off the Pill. After 6 sessions of your wonderful treatment ,my periods started again, and now, after continuing fertility treatment with you, I am delighted to tell you  I am  pregnant, thanks to your treatment.
RM, Erdington

Before coming for treatment, I could only lift my arms 40-50 degrees, and simple tasks like washing my hair were difficult. After only 2 weeks of treatment, I can lift my arms freely, and simple tasks are easy. AlI can say is thank you very much for all you have done, I wish I had found you sooner

I had always wanted to conceive naturally. However after a year of trying, I was not pregnant, and had booked a first round of IVF at the Women's. In December 2015, i started treatment at your specialist fertility clinic to help prepare my body for the IVF. I was amazed and so happy to find out I was pregnant in January 2016, even before the IVF had started. Thank you so much!  
CT, Kidderminster

I started treatment with you for stress and poor sleep in November 2015, after my first round of IVF failed. I was booked in for a 2nd round of IVF at the Priory, but I am happy to tell you I am now pregnant naturally, all down to your fertility acupuncture treatment.
EB, Birmingham 

Hua,I came to your clinic in November 2015 after suffering a miscarriage, and was feeling despondent about my chances of getting pregnant again. However, after less than 3 months of your relaxing treatment and dietary advice, I am so pleased to tell you I am pregnant again!
LD, Wolverhampton 

I came to your clinic on 4th of March 2015, I am pregnant using only your acupuncture! Thank you for helping me and supporting my pregnancy at the moment. I find I have more energy and feel more relaxed after visiting your specialist clinic.
DT Birmingham

Hi Dr.Shen,I have some very good news to share with you. I am pregnant! We found out on our holiday in Venice for my birthday .It is the best ever present. I first came to your specialist Clinic on Valentine's Day, and we are pleased and surprised how soon I can get pregnant after years trying for a baby. As a bonus, I found I can sleep much better and relax since the first session with you. I can't recommend you enough to my friends and family. Thank you.
CH Sutton Coldfield 

I came to you in March 2015 after trying for a number of years to get pregnant. I found out I am pregnant just before I am about to start Clomet. Thank you for helping me get pregnant in a natural way.
SH Harborne

I am 12 weeks pregnant now! I came to your Edgbaston Clinic on the recommendation of a workmate you had helped. At the moment you are seeing my 2 sisters. As a dental nurse, I find it helps my menstruation, ovulation and relaxation with your technique of acupuncture.
SK Birmingham

Hi Dr. Shen, hope all well with you. Just to let you know my pregnancy test was positive today(14/11/2014). I was very upset when my IVF scan showed my left ovary was positioned too high to do egg collection and the follicles were not growing as well as expected. However, incredibly, everything became normal straight after a session of treatment at your clinic. Thank you for everything. I find treatment with you so relaxing, so I would still like to carry on having acupuncture regularly.
FB, Hollywood

Dear Dr. Shen,I hope this email finds you well. I just wanted to let you know that my pregnancy test was positive yesterday(08/11/14):) I think I am still in shock. After suffering years of irregular periods or no periods for a long time, I came to your specialist clinic. After your treatment, my periods returned regularly very quickly and I am overjoyed to be pregnant. Thanks again for everything!
AW, Birmingham 

Just a little message to say how thankful I am for your help. I felt better yesterday and today than I have in years with ME. I feel lifted and am very grateful.

I do miss our chats and relaxing moments at your clinic full of positive energy. 
CT, Birmingham 

In July 2014, I first visited Hua, and I'm delighted to learn I am pregnant NATURALLY ahead of my IVF schedule! No words can express my joy and appreciation towards Hua. At her clinic I feel all the positive energy and relaxed with Hua's session. Thank you our sunshine!

SJ, Edgbaston

I came to Hua's specialist fertility clinic in the middle of March 2014, after recommendation from a close work colleague, who got pregnant with Hua's help. We had been trying to conceive for 2 years, with a blocked tube on 1 side. I fell pregnant less than 1 month after starting treatment with Hua before my IVF schedule. Incredible! Thank you Hua!  SK, Birmingham, 

I came to Hua Shen on 13th Dec 2013, as I had irregular periods and I was unable to get pregnant for 20 months. Less than 1 month after my first appointment, I am pregnant. I couldn’t believe it could happen so quickly, I took 2 pregnancy tests to make sure.  We are so happy! I believe it is all thanks to Hua and her acupuncture expertise! MC, Smethwick

 After trying for a baby for years,I was recommended by the Birmingham Women's Hospital to Hua's clinic. My first appointment with Hua Shen was 22nd January 2014. After only 5 visits, I fell pregnant at the end of February. I can't tell you how grateful we are to Hua's fertility treatment techniques. Thank you for your positive energy and expertise! AK, Birmingham 

"Thank you for your last session. I slept 10.5 hours and I woke with a smile and felt like I returned from holiday." Dr VT,QE Hospital

"It's been great getting to know you. I don't think we would be expecting our second daughter if it wasn't for you. Thank you." KK, Bournville

"I had struggled for some years with irregular sleep patterns, low energy, migraine headaches and had become depressed. The quality of my life improved  week by week due to Hua Shen's treatment. She explained everything to me so I had a better understanding of my body.  She is professional and committed yet gentle and understanding. Thank you Hua" - Jacqueline Goode, Coventry

"Hua, We are writing to share one of life’s most exciting moments with you. Thanks to your support, knowledge and acupuncture treatment, our baby daughter Emily was born 2 months ago! We still remember how desperate we felt, after trying for a baby for 2 years and being diagnosed with unexplained infertility. We came to your practice after being recommended to you by a friend, and we found your moral support and advice so helpful and comforting during our acupuncture treatment. Thank you again for making our dream come true!" - Mr and Mrs G, Birmingham

"I wanted to drop you a brief note just to say how wonderful I felt following the past few sessions of Acupuncture for my wine drinking habit every night and back pain . It is really quite extraordinary how good I now feel, far more positive and with an abundance of energy and more importantly free of back pain.
As you know I was really quite a pessimist, never having tried "alternative" medicines before, however I am now a TOTAL convert.
Admittedly it helps that you are such a positive person with a sunny personality, you "bring" people along with your enthusiasm.
I am very happy to recommend your Acupuncture to any prospective clients" - CM, Dorridge

"My son suffered from painful Plantar Fasciitis in both feet. Hua treated him with a combination of acupressure massage followed by acupuncture. He felt no pain or discomfort and within just a couple of sessions was already benefitting from the treatment. He could physically feel the area of pain caused by the Plantar Fasciitis reduce as the treatment continued.  This has been a great relief and means he is now back playing rugby, hockey and PE. We are extremely grateful to Hua, whose caring professionalism and charming manner really put him at ease" - SM, Edgbaston

"I cannot recommend Hua Shen and her acupuncture enough. I have been going to her over a three year period to have treatment for an underlying health condition and in the run up to, and during, pregnancy. Hua has always been clear and honest in her dealings with me giving me realistic time scales for recovery (that are scarily accurate) and reducing the frequency of my appointments in line with my progress. That said, I will never forget how amazing I felt after my first appointment where after a thorough consultation Hua used acupuncture and acupressure to begin my treatment.  It was the most amazing release of pressure that left me buzzing as I walked home and unable to wait for my next session. Indeed my progress was so marked that my husband, a former sceptic, had treatment with Hua for a sports injury, again with great results.  She is an authoritative practitioner with experience and knowledge that make her a valuable contact to have." - Letty (South Birmingham)

"I received acupuncture for stress after the death of my father. Hua really put me at ease from the minute we met. I'd never had acupuncture before, and found it so good I went on to have it for over two years. She really helped with problems associated with stress such as sleep disruption and a lowered immune system. I don't think I could have got through such a difficult time without having the treatment from Hua. 

 As a nurse myself I have been trained in modern medicine, however through having acupuncture I now have a strong belief in alternative therapies. I strongly feel that no form of modern medicine could have helped with what I was experiencing.

I would highly recommend Hua to all. She listens, is kind and extremely knowledgeable. Clearly a very talented acupuncturist."  - AF,Birmingham

" I have been receiving treatment from Hua for 4 years following a diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis. She has been a key part in my battle with pain over this time and I can honestly say that her delivery of acupuncture has changed my life. As soon as I started the treatment I no longer needed pain killers and haven't taken them since. Hua is understanding and professional, she clearly knows her stuff! She makes me feel comfortable and the treatment is a collaborative process as she really listens to how I have been feeling and which areas of my body I need her to concentrate on. When I fell pregnant, she adjusted the treatment accordingly and was very reassuring as to what was appropriate for the condition whilst being pregnant. Prior to trying to conceive, I combined western medicine and acupuncture. Acupuncture has allowed me to come off my medication and try for a baby- successfully! I know I will continue to have treatment for many years to come with Hua as I will always live with rheumatoid arthritis, but I know my life will be easier with her in it. I am grateful for the life she somehow brings back into my joints and her unwavering support." - LH, Birmingham

"I found my treatment was very effective in reducing my leg pains. I had satisfactory answers to all my questions during my sessions. I found Hua to be a good mentor on all aspects of body and mind"  - Roy, Nuneaton

I first visited Hua when I suffered from IBS. Following 2-3 sessions and some dietary advice from her, my IBS cleared up and has not returned. I also went to see her when I had a lower back pain. Again, Hua treated me for 3 sessions and the pain was gone.She is such a good listener with healing hands, which makes me really look forward to my regular Health MOT with Hua.She is so helpful, some of my family members are very happy to see her as well  AP, Birmingham

"I first saw Hua Shen in September 2009. Her treatment helped me to relieve stress and fatigue. She was also very effective in eliminating my chronic sinus infection. Whenever I have any medical conditions which western medicine can't help with, she always fixes me with just a couple of sessions. She is very helpful, friendly, reliable and competent" - KP, Edgbaston
