Located in Montrose, the Shi Acupuncture & Herbal Clinic is run by Dr. Shang-Jin Shi.
He uses his expertise in traditional Chinese medicine and evidence-based practices to serve the greater Houston area.
Dr. Shi is very professional and caring. I walked in with tremendous pain after going to medical doctors and to chiropractors. After a few visits with Dr. Shi I have little to no discomfort.
In the fall of 2021, I went to Dr. Shi the month prior to receiving my first embryo transfer. His thoroughness, thoughtfulness and dedication kept me going back and hopeful that I was doing everything I possibly could to prepare for pregnancy. I only wish I would have been seeing him earlier in my IVF journey. Now as I type this review 24 weeks pregnant, I owe much of the early part of this journey to Dr. Shi. I highly recommend Dr. Shi if you are looking for someone who will create a detail treatment plan to supplement your IVF treatments.
I’ve recommended him to friends and family alike and they’ve always had great experience and prompt recovery from whatever illness they present him with.
Come see the man. You will become a regular like me!
I am very grateful friend of mine refer Dr Shi to me. My middle finger in right hand was injured by a ring(damaged/ extension a tendon). Before treatments I had a bad symptoms, pain , swelling at the base of the finger, I have to use my left hand to help extend the middle finger. After about five treatments by dr Shi I have a huge improvement!
Inflammation and swelling , pain almost gone, not need anymore to use my left hand to help extend it middle finger on the right hand.
I highly recommend Dr. Shi to help improve your life!
Thanks, Docs Shi!
The facility was extremely clean and Dr. Shi was very courteous and professional. His initial evaluation and assessment of my injury was very thourough. He was also flexible on scheduling appointments and willing to stay late beyond his normal business hours to accommodate my limited availability do to my work schedule.
I started feeling relief after my first visit and was completely pain free after my second visit. He was able to fix a problem that neither my family doctor nor my chiropractor could fix.
I’m very happy with the overall experience and with the results from the acupuncture. I would definitely recommend Shi Acupuncture and Herbal Clinic!!
I first went to Dr. Shi in 2016 with severe neck and shoulder pain. After physical therapy and muscle relaxers failing to reduce pain. I had to try acupuncture and turned to it as a last resort. Within the first 2 session had pain relief and within 6 sessions was pain free. Along with acupuncture, cupping and the herbal heat patches allowed me to fully recover. I have continued to make acupuncture part of my health care routine.
Also, he was always able and willing to meet me after 5pm or on Saturday mornings.
I’ve been seeing Dr. Shi for about a month now. I have chronic shoulder/neck tension and other pain that stems from that. I had visited two other acupuncturists before finding him, and his treatments have been the most effective in alleviating pain and giving me back mobility. The first time I came in was due to a bad flare up. I couldn’t get out of bed without assistance. I had constant pulsing pain all over the left side of my body and after the first visit, it calmed radiating pain to the points of origin.
I am able to comfortable drive again.
I brought my sister in this week- who had seen another acupuncturist for a year and does intensive yoga for her chronic muscle tension and pain, numbness. She said she felt like she was “floating” with how much better she felt.
He is very thorough and caring.
This was my first time to experience acupuncture and was interested in healing my plantar fasciitis. Dr. Shi was fantastic. His clinic is extremely clean and insisted on strict discipline as it relates to current Covid protocols. Dr Shi was transparent and highly informative about the procedure, timeframe for healing, and recommended home therapies to increase blood circulation. After 5 sessions my pain was virtually eliminated. I would certainly return should I have the need for additional treatment for this or any other relevant ailment. Very impressed and can walk without pain again.
I came to Dr Shi to start a pre-pregnancy routine in order to help me become pregnant… and it worked! He was so detail oriented and really took the time to talk about the IVF process and any medications I was taking. I’m 40 so I knew it was going to be more difficult for me to get pregnant as it is. He’s so thorough and really knows his craft. Also I have to say that his COVID and sanitation protocols are the best I have yet to see. I highly recommend Dr Shi and the results I got speak for themselves.
After having steroid shots in the base of my skull for migraines, my headaches grew to be excruciating. The cycle would not break and I was at about two months. Dr. Shi was able to break the headache cycle with one treatment. Subsequent ones helped with the areas in my neck and upper back that continued to cause headaches. Dr. Shi is incredibly professional and also a really nice person. I would recommend him to anyone.
This review is long overdue, but I’m so glad I found Dr. Shi. I was in search for an acupuncturist in hopes of bettering my chances with my IVF transfer. If I did my research earlier, I would’ve visited Dr. Shi way before I started IVF. I visited Dr. Shi two weeks before my transfer and had treatment 3 times a week up until I received my pregnancy results. Dr. Shi focused on fertility and anxiety acupuncture. I have high anxiety and every time I finished my session I would feel very calm and relaxed. I’m thrilled to share that I am 25 weeks pregnant (one round of IVF and first transfer too!). Dr. Shi is very polite, attentive, and accommodating. He was thorough with my IVF schedule and built an acupuncture schedule around it. He even came in his day off to accommodate my transfer date. He would also reach out to check in after how my transfer went and how I was doing from time to time. I would highly recommend Dr. Shi! I plan on revisiting when I need acupuncture again for my anxiety and to address other issues.
Update: after 2nd session there was a huge difference in pain. Almost gone just in 2 sessions. He noticed some infection around my knee and gave a a complimentary ointment.
You cannot go wrong with Doctor.Shi
In 2021 my Mom was diagnosed with Bell Palsy. We tried everything to release the swelling from her face. We went to a traditional neurologist who said nothing could be done. The neurologist said we would have to wait for Bell Palsy to go away on it’s on. My Mom, decided to see if Dr. Shi could help. Dr. Shi made no promises, he asked question and evaluated my Moms symptoms. When my Mom started treatment she couldn’t feel one side of her face. Her cheeks were swollen and she lost her sense of taste. My Mom regained her taste buds. Dr. Shi is amazing.

He is the BEST!
I went to Dr. Shi 1 month ago with bad Sciatica pains going down my left leg after hurting my back. At my 1st session, my pain was about a 7/8 out of 10. After 5 sessions (1 month) my pain was at a 0. Last time I had a sciatica issue, it took me 6 months to heal. Just want to say, I would highly recommend Dr. Shi. Thank you very much for all you done , your professionalism and your kindness was over the top..
I never write reviews but I have to share our experience with Dr. Shi. My friend hurt her back on July 1st 2022. She couldn’t move or sleep. She was in a horrible pain, it made her cry. On July 5th we found Dr. Shi on google, he gave her an appointment that same day. She came into his office with the help of a walker with pain 10/10, and after the first session we saw improvements. We left and she was walking on her own. From 4 consecutive visits to Dr Shi, my friend’s pain went from the highest amount of pain imaginable 10/10 down to a 4/10. We visited Dr. Shi a total of 7 times and my friend’s back pain is completely gone. She was able to get back to her regular activities; she can now drive and cook all by herself. If anyone is experiencing a horrible amount of pain, please go visit Dr. Shi!! He’s seriously amazing, super professional, respectful, he gives detailed explanations, and he genuinely cares about his patients. He gives a permanent solution for the pain. I 100% recommend Dr. Shi!
BEST PLACE, VERY PROFESSIONAL 100% RECOMMENDED!! Jose morales💯 …
