"I first went to Simel with a bad headache that wouldn't go away. It didn't take long for him to recognize that I was over using alcohol, which likely led to my condition in the first place. He offered to help me with my alcohol habit, which I knew was unhealthy and unsustainable, but I didn't want to hear it, and I really just wanted my head to feel normal again. I knew he was right, and after one acupuncture session, my head felt better, so I didn't return and I kept on the path I was on. Fast forward a year later, October 2015, further down my path of alcohol abuse. I knew I was stuck in a bad habit that I just couldn't break on my own. I would not admit to myself that I had a problem. If I was a lush, so were all of my friends and so was the rest of Austin. My alcohol consumption was "normal," I justified to myself over and over again. I had managed to piss off some friends with my sharp, rude, drunken tongue. My own boyfriend said he was worried about my relationship with alcohol. I was so sick of feeling sick all the time. I was having GI issues, thyroid issues, mood issues, you name it. I tried to blame it on everything else, but in my heart I knew that my bottle of red wine a day had been the largest contributing factor to my ails - physical, emotional, and spiritual. I decided to return to Simel and take him up on his offer to help me quit my destructive habit. I visited him twice a week for a couple of months for mentorship and acupuncture, and I quit drinking cold turkey. It has been 3 months sober! I quit drinking and began nourishing healthy, life-promoting habits. I have never felt more alive, more like myself! I am losing weight, my skin has cleared up, and I don't feel sick and tired all the time. I thank Simel so much for helping me get to this place."
I hope you are doing well! Please keep in touch, especially with any more volunteer opportunities!

Simel is an incredibly intuitive and knowledgeable healer. He has a vast understanding of the medicinal properties of food, plants, and the spirit world. He offers nutritional support in his practice of Chinese Medicine as well as nurturing the uniqueness of each and every client.

Acupuncture was next level today, pretty sure I went somewhere else. Your services have truly helped me feel more like myself and aspire for everything the universe offers. Thanks very much for everything you do. I'm so grateful.

Before receiving treatment from Simel I sought treatment from conventional medicine for various issues that included severe gastro discomfort and pain. My GP couldn’t find a cure. I was then referred to a gastrointestinal specialist. After going through a battery of tests the cause and a cure still couldn’t be found. It was even suggested I undergo exploratory surgery even though they wouldn’t know what they were looking for!
That’s where I drew the line and sought an alternative approach. One of our dear friends who was at the time a current patient of Simel’s who underwent successful treatment suggested I go to him for a consultation.
From the start, Simel exhibited a very caring nature about him. What I liked the most is not only did he address the physical aspect of our well being, but also the spiritual. He stressed that hand-in-hand improving on those qualities is a key to overall health.
Today, with Simel’s direction and care given with an individualized protocol involving Chinese medicine, acupuncture and Qi Gong, I feel like a new person compared to the first day I came to his office.
My experience under Simel’s care has been amazing. My health condition has been turned around. I feel like I’m glowing. I continue to grow stronger. I’m much healthier and now live without pain. In addition, I’ve lost my dependence on pharmaceutical drugs that had caused many side effects in the past.
Simel is a true healer. He is really concerned about you as an individual and seeks to make you a whole person. I highly recommend anyone dealing with health issues, especially those that conventional medical specialists can’t resolve, to consult with him to find the path to overall health.
Thank you for everything you do Simel.

Simel has been a tremendous support to myself and my two boys, emotionally, spiritually and physically.
I had been looking for him for several years. I saw a naturopath, a homeopath, a Chinese herbalist, an acupuncturist.. I saw an acupuncturist weekly and took whatever pills and herbs I was given but know one came close to offering the amount of love , support and knowledge of herbs as Simel does.
I have more energy now, my boys are thriving and my chronic issues have been dramatically reduced , far beyond what anyone else was able to accomplish. I attribute this as much to simel's extensive knowledge of herbs, as I do towards his very presence and desire to be of the utmost support to everyone who walks through his door.
Thank you, Simel !!

I found Simel on a day when I felt desperate. I had chronic joint pain and my GP told me he could not find the source but recommended a dose of steroids. Fast forward three months and with a combination of herbs, acupuncture and QiGong I am pain free, I've lost 20 pounds, and I'm off all of the pharmaceutical meds I had been on for over 10 years (for acid reflux and herpes) . I'm also more present at my job and happier in my relationships. My life has been transformed. With Simel's guidance I am living a life that's a true reflection of my spirit. The tangible results are powerful but the intangible changes are even more profound. Thanks my friend. You are a true healer. I so grateful you came into my life.
I've lived with herpes for 12 years, struggling with chronic outbreaks that left me feeling shameful, interfering with my happy relationship and suffering the terrible pain that comes with them. For most of those years my daily routine was prescription drugs to try and ward off my symptoms. I did not believe I had a choice in this treatment, until I found Simel and began taking the Amazonian herbs he suggested.
In the 3 months I have been seeing him I have not had a single outbreak. Not one! Even with the meds I was taking I had sores all the time. Not anymore! I feel like this chronic virus is dormant in my body, maybe even gone. Blood work will hopefully affirm that soon.
Thanks Simel. You changed my life.

My work with Simel Bey has been transformational in many ways. I have noticed many enlightening aspects revealed in my life since our first session together. A heightened sense of awareness, in myself and in others, continues to reveal many blessings and wonderful surprises since my work began with Simel.
Katrina Jane P. 05/05/14
Simel is truly a sincere healer and truth-seeker. After every session with Simel I leave feeling better - both mentally and physically. My work with Simel Bey has renewed a positive perspective and instilled in me a radiant energy. I am not a berry person. At all. But I've had to become one. Special thanks and shout-out to Simel Bey, an acupuncturist and natural healer, who cured my year-long sore throat (something 9 doctors could not do) through diet and Chinese herbs. Highly recommended, local Austin folks (and he's a children's author, too, FYI).

Simel Bey is a true healer with a holistic understanding of the human body and the world it inhabits. He has healed many people I know and guided them towards living more enlightened lives.
I have never felt so connected with my own body as on Simel's acupuncture table - it is a wonderful and unforgettable experience. In most doctors offices I have felt disconnected from the procedures, but in Simel's sessions I understand everything that's going on. It is liberating and illuminating.
Beyond acupuncture and an amazing relationship to herbs from around the world, Simel knows the human heart. I have brought my fears, dreams and family issues into our sessions. The deeper I have opened up the more able Simel has been to help cure me of my ailments and help guide me to a more spiritual and fulfilling life.
With the utmost sincerity I recommend to Simel Bey to everyone I know.
Simel's appetite for the truth and appreciation for our place in the universe is contagious... He has helped me become a more grounded, spiritual and truth-seeking person. With Simel's guidance my Qigong practice has become the most fulfilling part of every day. I will always cherish the hours I spent with Simel and will never forget his sparkling, wonder-filled eyes as we journeyed together. Thanks Simel, You are an awesome guy.
I cannot express in words how grateful I am that you came into my life. When I first came to see you I thought I was coming to deal solely with my digestive disorder. Little did I know then that my entire life and outlook would change from the experience.
From the first time I spoke with you on the phone I knew I found the practitioner that was right for me. Your calm and balanced demeanor immediately put me at ease, and for someone who suffers from anxiety that means a lot. I truly appreciate your incredibly compassionate bedside manner; it made me feel more comfortable and relaxed than I have ever felt with a practitioner before.
Your guidance has helped to not only heal my body, but has helped me to reconnect with my soul. Within just one month of seeing you, my chronic fatigue has been eliminated, my anxiety has greatly decreased, and I finally have begun to feel centered again.
You have truly changed my life, and helped me to see during a time when I have felt blind. Thank you for all you have done for me Simel. I will recommend your services to everyone I meet.
*About your Planetary Herbal Medicine "The Great Eraser"
I don't know how you did it brother, but you did it! I was diagnosed with
Hepatitis C for 17 years. I am a construction worker and my health could be
better. Simel gave me a bottle of some of his formulations from the
rainforest. I took them for 30 days and went in for a routine checkup on my
Hep.C viral load. What happen next blew me away. The doctor said my Hep C.
was gone! I have the documentation to prove it, I hope Simel posts this
(testimonial) with the proof. Brother I love you!*
"Simel Bey, founder and Acupuncturist extraordinaire, is a true healer! Intuitive, kind, decisive and vastly knowledgeable about an array of useful subjects regarding spirituality and health.
My life has completely transformed thanks to his love, support, guidance and needles!! My menstrual cycles, which used to be excruciating, are now painless and shorter in duration. I have healed old wounds with my daughter's long lost father. I have more energy, a better outlook and new friends! Just after one session with him I was changed. After 6 - completely revolutionized.
Simel will adapt to your wants and needs, with precise intuition and TLC. Ready to really heal and grow in an abundant, soulful way? Go to Simel...."
I'm thankful for you all of your guidance. I'm excited for my studies. It be a long journey but well worth it.
Thank you for reminding me of my truth.
With gratitude and love,
Many blessings to you and yours.
Thank you again Simel for your help this morning. Ayotunde is doingwell and I'm doing well :) thanks to your call. You are what we call Albularyo, a healer using herbs, massage, energy, prayer and then there's the use of acupuncture. My grandfather was one and a few of the elders back in my dad's hometown or island. And I'm so happy I met you.
Good day. I would like to send my most gracious thank you. I am so thankful to have you in my life. Thank you for being there last week. I was 90% healed as of Friday.
I am so thankful you are my practitioner/teacher. I have felt so lost and alone so many years in my life. Thank you for all the guidance, overstanding, teachings, advice, as well as over all love.
There was a plan on how we were suppose to meet, and I am so blessed for the journey it took for you to enter into my life.
My first visit to Simel Bey was for chronic shoulder pain, and since that day my life has not been the same. If it weren't for Simel's gentle guidance my life would be on a path of destruction. He has provided me with the tools to live a positive and healthy life. I feel so fortunate to have crossed paths with Simel and have the utmost trust and respect for him. I highly recommend Simel's services to anyone suffering from a physical ailment or seeking guidance.
It has taken me some time to sit down and write this testimonial. I have thought long and hard about how I could possibly express my gratitude and put to words just exactly what Simel Bey has done for me. Simel Bey and his unique and thorough approach to healing has helped me to deal with a variety of health issues. Bey Acupuncture uses an array of treatments including acupuncture, herbal remedies from around the globe, and preventative medicine. Simel has helped me to find a path that is healthy, constructive, and fulfilling. He has helped me to improve my already strong bond with my wife and been a subtle guide through the beginning of my marriage. It is difficult to express, but in a word Simel Bey is more than a physician, for me he has become a mentor.
Thank you Simel for your compassion and care.
I can't say enough great things about Simel Bey Bey Acupuncture. I started being treated by him at the beginning of the year 2012 for unbelievable pain I endured because of tendinitis that was ravaging my shoulder and arms from the repetitive motion involved in being a full-time glass artist for 15 years. He has helped me with the pain through his great understanding of acupuncture, his vast knowledge of ancient Chinese healing herbs, and something I didn't expect: his keen ability to help me understand that a lot of the problems stemmed from a very unbalanced life physically, spiritually and mentally.
I introduced my 19 year old son to his practice and he has helped both of us begin to really understand each other at the deepest levels and create the kind of strong bond that you dream of when you become a parent! Because of his influence my son and I are taking Tai Chi classes together, playing basketball for the first time in 6 years(our first love) and spending quality time together doing things we really took for granted in the past.
After spending over a thousand dollars for my problems going to different medical specialists that treat you worse than just a number it is truly refreshing and amazing to find someone that treats you with respect and cares about you like your family or a good friend, not a paycheck. My son and I really look forward to seeing Simel each week. His energy, insightful words and concern for us always brightens our day!
Simel is much much more than an acupuncturist, a Chinese herbalist, or a spiritual counselor. He is a man on a mission to truly help people at the deepest levels and you can see he really found his calling.
Thank you so much Simel for helping my son and I experience a much higher quality of life.
Tim Garner, Austin Texas
You have been my "primary care" physician during the most difficult and challenging time of my life. I cannot thank the universe enough for your presence and timing. During the past few years you have assisted in restoring my mind, body and spirit. You kept me healthy, treated ailments, old wounds, current conditions and have been a consistent source of wellness and encouragement.
In short, thank you for your expertise in restoring my life.
I was looking for a noninvasive solution for a wart that I had on my finger. I was hesitant to go to a doctor that would just burn it off due to the fact that I didn't want chemicals penetrating my skin and staying in my body for long periods of time. I began using a mixture (External Rainforest Salve) that Simel Bey had given to me and with in 2 weeks the wart has subsided and my finger is back to normal. I would highly recommend Simel to anyone wanting to live a healthier life and do so in a natural way. Thank you.
