Biography

In 1995 I was like many people in their early 20's: I went out with my friends frequently and had a really good time. I had a job that I enjoyed but didn't love. I felt somewhat lost in myself and I didn't know how to articulate that, even to myself. I didn't know why I was here.

Then, my cousin, who is one year younger than me, almost died in a car accident. This event sparked a huge wake-up call--I realized that I could die at any time. I became startlingly aware that life is short and precious. The epiphany that followed contained a vision of a different kind of life. A life where I did something that really made a difference--that really helped the world. I had been interested in holistic healing for several years and decided that I would pursue a career in helping others through alternative medicine. 

My love affair with Chinese medicine began in 1996 when I entered 5 Element Shiatsu school and continues today. I am so grateful to be part of a healing tradition and lineage of healers that extends back thousands of years and is so beautiful. Helping others is my passion and has brought the deepest fulfillment to my life. 

I've had my own private practice since 2005 and have served the Athens, GA, Atlanta, GA, Decatur, GA, and now Palm Beach County areas. I taught for a semester at the GCU School of Oriental Medicine and have taught acupressure courses to couples and individuals over the years at local colleges. Teaching and lecturing is fun for me and I am always looking for this type of opportunity.

My name, Shams (rhymes with Brahms), is unusual here in America. It literally means "the sun." My spiritual teacher gave it to me and said, "Shams is the one who gives the healing and the love to all the people." This is my call to action and has provided inspiration and healing for me in many ways. It is my touchstone and every day I do my best to live up to it.

I pray that my healing practice in Jupiter FL, North Palm Beach FL, Boca Raton, and Palm Beach County benefits everyone it touches.

Shams Wesley says...

I've been practicing acupuncture since 2000 and have helped thousands of people find relief from infertility, women's health issues, pain, chronic illness, stress, depression, anxiety, and more. Thankfully, I've been blessed to study with top practitioners in my field, and over time I have developed my own synergistic style of acupuncture.

Pain has always been a main focus in my practice and years of experience has taught me how to relieve it quickly and effectively. 

My practice supports women of all ages in finding balance, including with the menstrual cycle, fertility, pregnancy, post-partum, menopause, and beyond. Hundreds of patients now have beautiful babies. Male infertility is also a specialty I offer, and men always enjoy the treatment more than they think they will.

For people struggling with fertility, I often incorporate emotional and spiritual healing methods for what can be a highly emotional journey. These same methods help patients with depression, anxiety, and stress.
