My daughter has received treatment from Shabnam Pourhassani on a few occasions and I consider her practice an essential health care component. The treatment I sought for my nine year old from Ms. Pourhassani was in conjunction with other prescription medication. My daughter was seen at a local urgent care for a severe cold sore outbreak, an upper respiratory infection and seasonal allergies. She was in quite a bit of pain and just miserable. She was nervous about receiving acupuncture and did not want to go anywhere after waiting for hours at the urgent care the previous day. Ms. Pourhassani’s office immediately put her at ease, the treatment center is peaceful and centered on healing. I think this is an important distinction to make because so often the experience of going to the Dr. can be stressful, especially for children.
Apart from the environment, Ms. Pourhassani has an incredible ability to relate to children, and parents. She’s calming and patient and constantly reassuring. She also allowed my daughter to have an input in her treatment. During her treatment my daughter’s congestion improved and she actually fell asleep. I highly recommend Ms. Pourhassani to my friends and their children.
Work Comp Testimonial
I have gone to bit Shabnam and Dr Mehvar both of whom were very professional and caring. They helped me with pain management after an accident and the symptoms dissipated significantly. The herbs assisted me with inflammation which prescription meds could not do. Shabnam was my primary acupuncturist and she is continuously expanding her knowledge to incorporate acupuncture with other techniques ie hypnotherapy, nutrition, mindfulness, etc. I am eternally grateful for their help, and have referred them to friends who love working with Shabnam
Fertility & Pregnancy
"I started seeing Shabnam for fertility issues and chronic migraines about 7 months ago. I have had a drastic difference in my migraines and am currently pregnant with many thanks to her! After doing a few months of fertility treatment, the benefits that came with doing acupuncture to help get pregnant was amazing. During my first 2 trimesters it was very hard to have to stay away from any headache medications, but she taught me different ways to deal with my migraines. With weekly visits plus information on triggers and breathing exercises to help, I can thankfully say migraines are very rare for me now. With pregnancy she has helped with every sort of issue I have come to her about, like leg, feet and back pain, plus over all daily stress. I highly recommend Shabnam :-)"
Infertility & Pregnancy
"My overall experience with Shabnam has been amazing. She takes the time to listen to her patients and comes up with the best treatment plan for them based on their medical history and specific needs. I feel comfortable talking with her about any problems I am having and she always is able to calm me and reassures me. I initially started seeing Shabnam in 2014 because my husband and I were have a hard time conceiving with our second child. We had suffered 1 miscarriage and 2 chemical pregnancies after conceiving my son with no problems at all. During all of the emotional ups and downs through that difficult time Shabnam was able to regulate my hormones and my emotional state. Three short months later we conceived and we are currently 6 months pregnant. I have continued my treatment with Shabnam to help regulate my hormones during pregnancy. When I was pregnant with my son I had a severe rash and chronic nosebleeds. My OBGYN and my ENT could only tell me that it was all related to hormonal changes during pregnancy. I can tell you that because I have continued my acupuncture treatment through my pregnancy and have a very slight rash on my ankle and have only had 2 nosebleeds. I know that because body being regulated from the acupuncture I have had a very comfortable pregnancy. I only positive things to say about Shabnam and her staff. Thank you for all you have done and are continuing to do for me!!!"
Neurological Condition (Palsy)
Acupuncture saves! Shabnam is the best! She is a great doctor and healer through acupuncture and expert on Chinese medicine. She cured my condition in a FRACTION of the time my neurologist said! My hand left hand was *paralyzed* due to “Saturday Night Palsy” (falling asleep on your arm and bruising your radial nerve), which was TERRIFYING as a guitar player. My hand wouldn’t lift, move, fingers had no spread or strength My neurologist said “It happens, it might take 6 weeks, it might take 6 months, we don’t know.” Luckily a friend recommended acupuncture, specifically, Shabnam! In only 1 1/2 weeks I saw improvement, and 2 1/2 weeks I was cured! The sessions were *amazingly* relaxing and professional, and the needles didn’t hurt at all. The prescription of herbs helped immensely, and I was shocked at my immediate progress! To have my hand strength back so quickly was like a miracle (as I need my hands for my profession), and Shabnam cured me quickly, compassionatly, and confidently. She also taught me relaxation techniques which I am using for the day to day, and the sessions of Acu, were *so* calming I would often find myself nodding away, feeling AMAZING during them, and hours after.
