“Gigi has been able to treat a rare eye disorder I have (Addis Pupil) which I had been told there was nothing to do for it.  I had been suffering with eye pain and strain and frequent headaches.  But regular visits with her have eliminated those symptoms!  Friends & family have also noticed a difference, they can’t tell anymore which eye is affected!  If I could come in every day, I would!  She first gave me hope that there was something to help a chronic condition.  Then she made a big difference in a condition that impacts my everyday life.  Her work has really honestly changed my life.  I could say so much more… Gigi has been fabulous!”

–Charis Stiles

–Maria Balme

“Georjana is GREAT.  Both knowledgeable and intuitive.  She listens.  She responds.”


“All of my treatments with Georjana Shames have been fantastic. In two months of pain literally the only time I was symptom-free was when I was lying on her acupuncture table. She has found the perfect niche within the field of Acupuncture and is an excellent practitioner. Thank you Georjana for helping me so much.”

–Jesse Ryan

“Before receiving Acupuncture I had symptoms of blurry eyes; my left eye tends to become blurry. During the treatment I was lying on the table as the needles were being inserted and I noticed the ceiling light above me could be used as a gauge for my eyesight. I began testing it by closing my eyes and opening them a moment later. Within minutes of receiving Acupuncture the contours of the light became sharper. Also the treatment was pain-free, and felt very good.”

–Iden Warnock

“Georjana treated me for a couple of months for a climbing injury (carpi ulnaris tendonosis), not to mention every other minor injury I managed to incur during that time. She was tender, attentive, and thorough. Beyond Acupuncture, she advised me on what to include in my diet to aid in the healing process. When we concluded the treatments, I felt stronger and more balanced.”

–Adam Butler

“I attended Preventive Medical Center’s open house and was really happy to say hello to Dr. Rich Shames and talk to some of the other practitioners.  Dr. Rich recommended that I make an appointment with Georjana and I did that.  I always wanted to get some Acupuncture treatment because I heard about the good results from it.  My experience with the treatment was wonderful and I wanted to pass this along to Dr. Rich and to Georjana.  During the treatment I began to feel the release of a great amount of tension and the lifting of troublesome thoughts.  And, I have had better concentration and focus since.”

–Barbara Bilsky

“Georjana, since my last Acupuncture session I have been doing very well and have lost weight!  Feeling good with your recommendation to cut out gluten and I definitely think you hit the nail on the head with that one.  The herbal formula you made for me is kicking in; with it I’m losing weight and I can’t believe how well I’m sleeping.”
