Acupuncture for Fertility Support

My husband and I had been trying to conceive for 3 1/2 years, and I've tried everything. I mean everything. Fertility drugs (multiple kinds), IUI (multiple times), IVF (multiple times), acupuncture for 6+ months, multiple times a week, at another top clinic in the Bay Area, and nothing worked.  I hadn't fully given up, because I am only 32, but my hope was low.  My husband and I were going into our 3rd IVF attempt, and I thought I would give acupuncture one last shot.


Now I know I did IVF as well, but I had done IVF 2 other times without success. I've never had a more sincere intake and such true empathy. She gave me a few "not annoying" tips on my nutrition that I was so open to, because of the way she delivered them.  Whatever she did was magic.  

I'm now 16 weeks pregnant, and still seeing Shirliey on a weekly or twice monthly basis.  She continue to be a life saver through morning sickness and all.  I missed a few weeks, and never felt worse.  As soon as I went back, I felt better again. I know this might sound skeptical, or like everyone else's story, but it's not a coincidence that when I saw her I got pregnant, and when I feel badly, she makes me feel better. It's truly magic.  I love Shirliey! 



I have been seeking treatment by Shirliey Fung at Wealth Acupuncture for the last 5 years. Initially I sought treatment for back, neck, and shoulder injuries from a motor vehicle accident. After successful treatment for my injuries we began treatment for fertility. I was told that I had diminished ovarian reserve and could have trouble conceiving on my own. Shirliey was confident that we could successfully treat my potential fertility issues with great success. She was right! Within 6 months of treatment, I got my positive pregnancy test result! It has been an absolute joy working with Shirliey over the years and I look forward to each and every treatment--not just because of the quality of the treatment, but because I truly trust her as my provider, advocate, and friend.

Acupuncture for Pregnancy and post-natal support

Being a student of naturopathic medicine, I wanted to do everything possible
to ensure a healthy pregnancy. I used acupuncture from week 12 until 1
week before delivery. Thanks to Shirliey's treatments, my pregnancy was free of any complications. I maintained great energy, remained calm and free of fear, I did not suffer from varicose veins, hemorrhoids, headaches, mood swings, or edema The problems that did arise, such as insomnia, anemia, and bloating/nausea were all eliminated with my acupuncture visits. My baby is now 6 months old and is what my pediatrician calls a "trick baby." She is every mother's dream. We all wonder if the acupuncture had something to do with what an easy, well-natured infant she is. I highly recommend acupuncture for pre and postnatal care. On occasion, I still use acupuncture to help with breast milk production.

Shirliey is a special woman and a talented, compassionate practitioner.

I first got treated by Shirliey Fung for back pain from a car accident that was not getting better after other treatments (physical therapy, chiropractic, and pain management techniques).  I was impressed with how she was not only able to alleviate the pain, but help my overall health and energy. Since then, we have worked on other problems such as menstrual cramps and digestive issues.  I was recently exposed to the swine flu (H1N1) and was able to seek treatment with Shirliey within 24 hours. The horrible headache, fever, and cough were gone within two hours of the treatment.  I didn't think the acupuncture and Chinese herbs could help me so fast, but I was without any symptoms much sooner than I would have been if I didn't have Shirliey to help me.  Even if you are apprehensive, you should try to see if acupuncture can help you, and the herbs are wonderful also.

Acupuncture for Digestion and Nightmares

All my life I've suffered with digestive diseases. I've been hospitalized several times with ulcerative colitis and diverticulitis. The last five years have been miserable with bloating, constant pain, and chronic constipation. I couldn't eat a small bowl of soup without blowing up to look as if I were seven months pregnant. I saw many specialists and had many medical tests performed on me. No answers. One day my doctor suggested that I try acupuncture. When I found my way to Shirliey in February of this year, I pretty much knew that I was beyond hope. I was wrong! Acupuncture has brought me relief that I didn't think possible. For the first time in five years, I'm not suffering from abdominal pain and bloating! And, while I had been haunted each night with really bad dreams, I can even remember my last nightmare! Thank you, Shirliey, for your on-going encouragement and knowledgable practice. I'm proof that acupuncture works.


Acupuncture for Uncontrolled Uterine Bleeding

I first saw Shirliey in September of 2005. I had been having an uncontrolled menstruation for seven months straight. My OBGYN said it was stress induced and there wasn't anything she could do besides prescribe more pharmaceutical drugs. I was reluctant to take more chemicals into my body. I was also suffering from terrible constipation and poor sleep due to nightmares. After only a few sessions with Shirliey, my menstruation was regulated and for the first time in nearly a year I had a good night's sleep-the nightmares had ceased!

Shirliey is extremely knowledgeable in Chinese Medicine and how it works in the body, but I believe she also has a wonderful intuitive sense about her. I am thankful for a natural healthcare alternative and to have met such a compassionate healthcare provider.

Acupuncture for Migraines

I have suffered from migraines for more than 40 years. I have tried everything from biofeedback to daily doses of prescribed medicine. Nothing was able to break the cycle of debilitating headaches occurring one to three times a month, lasting from two to five days in duration. After only a few treatments by Shirliey, the migraine cycle was broken and I continued to be virtually headache free for the next eight months. I have seen Shirliey on a regular basis and am amazed by the powerful, restorative effects of her treatments. Her technique is performed with a gentle, confident, strength that leaves me feeling calm and rejuvenated. I am so grateful to have finally found an answer to not only my migraines, but my quest for an effective, empowering healthcare option.

Acupuncture for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

I write to recommend Shirliey Fung as an acupuncturist. The character of her work is brave a thorough, questing and careful. Under her care, the two worst symptoms of my Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, exhaustion and all-over body ache, improved a lot-and did not relapse. Japanese-style acupuncture has been my main ally against CSF for ten years. Shirliey Fung's touch with this treatment method is one of the very best of the many I've known.



Acupuncture for General Wellbeing

I had my first acupuncture treatment about 2 month ago, and I am so glad that I did it! I feel so good now. Shirliey is very knowledgeable and professional. I have referred many of my clients to her, some of them had very challenging conditions such as Fibromyalgia and migranes, etc., and they all are amazed about the results of her treatments. Thank you Shirliey!
