This was my second visit with Sharon and I am extremely pleased with the outcome. Just like my initial visit, I received specialized individual care and an amazing acupuncture session. Today’s visit reinforces the fact of my new norm being anacupuncture appointment every two months. Traditional Chinese Medicine is absolutely amazing and having Sharon as your “go to” is icing on the cake! Thank you, Fred H.

Best pain relief I have had after several weeks of pursuing other therapies (massage, ART, PT, anti-inflammatories.) After an hour of acupuncture, I finally had a good night's sleep for the first time in a month, and the muscle seems tohave relaxed completely. Highly recommend for sports and other musculoskeletal injuries.

Sharon both asked and answered a lot of questions. She offered making my next visit so as to not be caught in rush hour traffic. She laid out her plan of treatment for the next three weeks. When I surprised herwith a couple aches and pains I forgot to put down on the application, she immediately supplemented her approach to accommodate those maladies. Very impressed.

Sharon is an complete professional. I have metastatic breast cancer and Graves disease. She will research the literature to find out everything she can about your problems so that she will provide you with the best care. She is extremelyknowledgeable about the role that Chinese medicine and acupuncture can play along with traditional allopathic or osteopathic medicine. She is a most compassionate, caring and competent health care provider.

Sharon listens carefully and elicits a thorough history. She is expertly trained and very experienced. Her manner is caring and reassuring, her hands steady and gentle, and the results are amazing. It's a bonus that Sharon has a great senseof humor too especially when you are having needles driven into your body! I cannot say enough good things.
