“I have been a patient a West Berkeley Wellness for the last 3 months, and in that time I have seen both Miero and Jean-Louis. I began treatment for stress and anxiety that was causing me to have issues with insomnia and tense muscle aches throughout my body. I was dealing with a crisis in my life and had tried talking to a therapist, but it did not seem to resolve my actual health issues.
My friend told me about West Berkeley Wellness, so I called and made an appointment with Miero as a last ditch effort for help. I AM LUCKY I DID! I am not new to acupuncture, but I had never sought treatment during life changing circumstances. Miero’s care that first visit turned me into a long-term patient at Berkeley Wellness. Within that first week, all my symptoms seemed to disappear. I slept a full 8-hours, and when I would wake up in the middle of the night, I was able to fall back asleep.
Miero also recommended some herbs for me to take throughout the week that have helped tremendously during the weeks that I cannot come in for treatment. I also tried cupping with Miero and had a much more pleasant experience than I have had with other practitioners in the past. All in all, I am so happy that I found Miero and will continue to recommend her to anyone facing health issues or who just want to try out acupuncture!”

“I’ve always lived a relatively healthy life. Lots of exercise, a good balanced diet, no fast foods or sodas and enjoyed life to the fullest. So, I never imagined getting sick, but, I did.
I’ve used acupuncture off and on since 2002. When my 70 year old acupuncturist began to have less time and wanted to focus more on her grandchildren, I put acupuncture aside. I would go to see Aimee at West Berkeley Wellness, from time to time, just as she opened her practice.
When I got sick, I was ready to return for treatment. Aimee’s schedule was limited as she had just had a baby, but recommended I see Jean Louis. A man… I wasn’t sure I was comfortable with this, but, since I’d had some recent, negative experiences with men, I thought it would be a good idea for me.
What I did receive I never expected. A kind, warm, compassionate healer, who was not only giving me great treatments, he was also LISTENING. Several months without diagnosis or explanation, he diligently kept my body running to get me from appointment to appointment.
Being diagnosed with a rare, complicated, autoimmune disease has been challenging for all my doctors. They treat me like I’m crazy, a hypochondriac, ask me if I’m seeing a therapist. Despite the fact they’ve seen me get very ill, when things don’t “add up” in their categories, I clearly must be a hysteric.
Luckily, I have Jean Louis in my corner, giving me the care I need. With much care and compassion. I couldn’t survive this without him. A chronically ill person needs a caregiver who sees the individual, not the category.
He is always respectful, kind and generous. If you need a good practitioner, whether you’re sick or not, we all deserve good treatment, care and time dedicated to caring for ourselves. Jean Louis is an amazing person to get you where you need to go.”

“I’ve been a patient at West Berkeley Wellness for over 6 years. The progress in my health has been remarkable and the lifestyle adjustments have been enormously beneficial. I’ve seen huge improvements with insomnia, heavy menstrual cycles, digestive issues, and anxiety levels. Everyone there is caring and compassionate which for me counts for a lot. They even did consults and sent me herbs both times I lived abroad. Highly recommended.”

“I’ve been getting treatments with Jean-Louis for several months and I couldn’t be happier with the care. He is an AMAZING practitioner. One thing that jumped out at me the first time I saw him was his keen intuition and sense for what a patient needs to recover health. I had multiple health issues which stemmed from emotional trauma. He really understood what I was saying and gave me a powerful treatment which helped me enormously. He is very knowledgeable and thorough. I’ve been getting treatments for other issues as well and I always feel better when I step out of the treatment room. I feel grateful to have a knowledgeable, caring practitioner who is committed to my well being and overall health.”

“I injured my lower back jumping off tires during a bootcamp. After six weeks of very little improvement, while merely picking up a pen, pain suddenly increased to the point where I could barely breathe, I couldn’t walk (I felt an intolerable burning numbness in my knee and foot), and I reached a level 10 in terms of pain. It was a scary experience because it was a new kind of pain and I had no idea when it would cease.
Fortunately, I was already familiar with WBW. I received services from Jean-Louis and Sage, and each was amazing in their own way. Within two weeks, the pain reduced tremendously, and I was finally able to engage in the simple acts I had previously taken for granted. Everyone at WBW is a healer and is indeed worthy of recognition. They excel at specifically targeted treatment plans related to pain and emotional release.”

“My experience at the West Berkeley Wellness Center is like none other, I love Miero who is always very flexible with her schedule and caring to my worries, aches and pains. I am always telling my patients about it and suggesting to them to try it. The feeling after my sessions are great, and I find myself feeling so much better and the points that we hit with each session, well I can just say they are always on point.”

“I’ve had a fantastic experience working with Aimee this last year. She is very conscious about making everything as ideal as possible for her patients and the beauty of the center is an expression of that. I’m sure it’s the most beautiful health and wellness office I’ve been to.
Aimee has tuned me up several times this year–relieving various aches and pains and helping me relax overall. She is through in her questioning and planning of a treatment. She also checks in before, during and after a treatment. She offers heat lamps and keeps one comfortable. Having received quite a few acupuncture treatments, I can say Aimee has exceptional skills.”
