I have seen Sharon professionally for the last 3-4 years - always with amazing results. I am a consultant and long distance runner with a busy schedule, and she is always accommodating for appointments, and genuinely interested in my issues. I have seen her for a variety of aches and pains over the years, including stress-related chronic pain and more run-related injuries. Quads, adductors, achilles, neck, back, shin splints - her results are genuinely incredible to me. I am usually disappointed in myself that I didn't schedule her in sooner before my other less-than-successful attempts with PT, xrays, medicating or rest. She has kept me on the road - happy & healthy - and definitely understands the athlete mentality and endurance-specific issues. I have also used her from time to time re: Chinese herbals, with great result, particularly around spring and fall allergies. Lastly, she is a great resource for referrals to other quality health professionals in the area. Client for life!

Life should be enjoyed free of pain and stress and harmful chemicals ..,... Well Sharin is my peace and happiness catalyst! Sharon is simply amazing. We have been through a lot together over the years and she has healed everything from plantar fasciitis to literally tumors in my thyroid!!! After parathyroid surgery , doctors left a mass in my thyroid bc it was " inconclusive" for cancer and felt if they removed it , they would have to take out the whole thyroid and put me on replacement Meds my whole life. After seeing Sharon, and following her eating, herbal and acupuncture treatments, my tumor was gone!!!! Every 6 months I went for follow up ultrasounds and the doctors couldn't find it! Sharon is an intelligent, genuine, kind and caring healer; her treatments are natural, non evasive and Gauranteed positive results!

You need to go here!. I first went to Sharon Sherman 8 years ago while I was experiencing knee pain. To say that I don't like needles is a understatement. Sharon soon put me at ease with a combination of professionalism, warmth, knowledge and humor. Since then she has treated me for back, stomach, sleep and general life issues with great success. Sharon will take the time to get to know you, assess the problem that you are experiencing and fix it. It's that simple. It isn't magic, it is simply someone who has the knowledge and the compassion to heal. Sharon has been a blessing in my life as well to anyone I have referred to her.

I highly recommend Sharon Sherman to anyone seeking acupuncture treatment. She's extremely professional, helpful and friendly. She has been my acupuncturist for over 2 years and she always goes above and beyond researching symptoms I have or providing alternative treatment options to help avoid the side effects of prescription treatments. She treats me for migraines related to PMS symptoms and I have not had one intense migraine since I started seeing her. Like many, I still suffer from the odd headache, but her treatment has been very effective for me.

For those who are hesitant to try acupuncture, don't! You do not feel the needles at all and it's actually quite relaxing. I always leave my treatment with renewed energy and focus. Acupuncture for life!
