My experience with Empirical Point Acupuncture has met and then exceeded my initial hopes and expectations. The office, conveniently located in Chestnut Hill, is lovely and relaxing. Sharon Sherman has a unique personality blend of sensitivity, humor, and the ability to give informed practical lifestyle advice to enhance health. My initial concerns are already resolving themselves, and I intend to continue going for health maintenance. I couldn't be more delighted to have found Empirical Point Acupuncture, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sharon.
When I walk into Sharon Sherman's office my body immediately relaxes in the surrounding colors, calm, quiet...a quiet only interrupted by Sharon's occasional burst of laughter. Sharon has an infectious sense of humor which immediately places a seemingly impossible pain or situation in the background of priorities. The combination of her education, ongoing training and innate understanding is reflected in treatments for an array of symptoms and on-going conditions. Treatments always result in a more balanced state of body and mind (and a kind of giggly spaciness for a bit). Within the context of her healing art,
Sharon manages to maintain very healthy boundaries and a well-organized, efficient business. I have the highest recommendation for Empirical Point Acupuncture.
Great acupuncturist! Would certainly recommend! Truly cares about clients, even came in on a day off when I needed her.
Excellent acupuncturist!! I can not recommend Empirical Point highly enough. I have had several experiences with acupuncture in my past, some good and some bad, but I have never had someone that I feel has helped me (and is currently helping me!) as much as Sharon Sherman has.
My sister did research for me when I found out I had lymphoma (she's a better researcher than me), and she found Empirical on recommendations alone on the internet, and they were exactly right, Sharon is the best! She has helped me through the side effects of chemo therapy, and now moving beyond it into remission. Her knowledge, humor, attentiveness make it a truly unique and wonderful healing experience. It is rare to have such a skilled person make you feel like you are their only patient- I have to say I am always a little surprised to see any one else in the office, b/c I always feel like she is there just for me! But this is truly her gift, and I would never go anywhere else.
Sharon does amazing work – I came to Sharon two years ago with a sports related injury. The injury was evaluated by my family physician as well as by a physician specialized in sports medicine. I was told that I needed to meet with a surgeon. Having had two surgeries in my live it was clear to me that an invasive procedure would be my last resort and I needed to try something more holistic before going down that route. That's when I was referred to Sharon and introduced to acupuncture. My experience was great, not only did Sharon helped me fully recover from my sports injury but in the process I learned a lot more about acupuncture and what it can do for you in terms of stress relief, immune support and many other things. Today I use acupuncture regularly and can only recommend Sharon. She has a wonderful practice, in great locations and delivers an extraordinary service in a very professional environment.
Awesome Experience – I first went to see Sharon about 10 months ago for help with some running injuries that were nagging and not getting any better. With the help of acupuncture and herbs, my recovery time was much faster than my docs expected and helped me get back to running really quickly. She's also been working with herbs to treat my Raynaud's--which I haven't found ANY good treatments for besides what we've got going (I had a doctor write a prescription saying "Move to CA" before). I'm amazed to see the effects and feel my fingers and toes all winter! She's one of the first medical professionals I've ever worked with who I feel like listens to what I'm saying and cares about finding answers and solutions. Her genuine, candid approach is comforting and makes me look forward to treatments. Highly recommended!
Thank you isnâ??t enough: – I want to take this opportunity to both thank Sharon, and to let as many people know what a wonderful Oriental Medicine practitioner Sharon is. I began being treated by Sharon in September of 2011 for a 15 year problem. I had utilized Western Medicine in the past with minimal and temporary results. After a few months in Sharon’s care that long standing problem is just an unpleasant memory. I enjoy going for treatment as Sharon takes the time to listen to me, and I truly feel that I am understood . The other amazing thing is that along the course of treatments my other physical problems have improved as well! My energy level has never been better, and I no longer catch every cold and flu I am exposed to. Most days I feel like “Super woman”.
Highly Recommend – I have been a client of Sharon's for over 8 years. I am forever indebted to Sharon for her invaluable help and support over the years. She has not only helped me to improve my physical health immeasurably (with specific health issues), she has also helped me to keep my body in balance (despite the fact that I seem to constantly work to push it out of balance with my busy lifestyle and "go go go" attitude...). Sharon does not rest until she has the answers that she is looking for and takes it upon herself to constantly expand her knowledge base in order to best serve the needs of her patients. This has clearly shown itself in the treatment plans that she has established for me over the years. Her innate caring and concern however has not stopped there. Sharon always provided a listening ear whenever I arrive for an appointment and has also provided the perfect resources for whatever I might possibly need outside of her office (ie. a massages therapist, physical therapist, and yoga instructor, just to name a few...). Sharon consistently goes above and beyond to provide the highest level of support for her clients and I cannot recommend her services highly enough. She is truly the best!
If you need acupuncture and herbal treatment, go see Sharon! – I met a woman (then 3 months pregnant) who was speaking of her journey towards motherhood. She had tried for some years to conceive, but with no luck b/c her cycle was very irregular and never knew when she was ovulating. She had tried a lot: diets, lifestyle changes, etc, and had seen several healers. When she moved to the Mount Airy neighborhood of Philadelphia, she heard about Sharon and began to see her. Within two months of treatments and taking herbs, her cycles were regular and she and her husband were able to conceive. When I heard her story, and the confidence with which she spoke about Sharon, I knew I had to see her. I had been battling with chronic diarrhea, which the western docs (who after many months of trying alternative therapies, herbs, taking parasite tests, etc. I finally decided to visit) had dubbed 'IBS', for more than a year. It was ruling my life, draining my energy, and leaving me feeling pretty miserable. I knew the western doc's diagnosis was I "BS" alright...I just wasn't sure what to do about it (IBS, by the way, is thought to be 'incurable'...not an illness, just a situation. anyone out there suffering, PLEASE consider eastern medicine for treatment). After the first treatment with Sharon, I felt complete confidence in her. Her down to earth nature felt really good to me (in fact, she can be quite the comedian sometimes, which I totally appreciate. she's not airy-fairy in the least!:). She, upon just looking at me and asking a few questions, had a good idea of what was at the root of the issue. After feeling my pulses and giving treatment, she realized that the issue was a bit more complicated than the textbook case for the situation at hand. For the last two months, she has been working the complexity of the body's issues like a work of art. She seems to be a master of herbs...(well, she has a master's in herbs after all;), constantly 'tweaking' my dosage based on her intuition and knowledge, and my feedback. In just two months, my symptoms are SO much better and nearly gone. AND, perhaps more importantly, the underlying cause of this dis-ease, which is stress, is so much less a part of my life. Through the power of treatment with Sharon, as well as the power of herbs, I have had a clearer vision of the mind's stress response in a whole new way. I have been able to feel more consistently peaceful and to make changes and decisions which support a more peaceful existence; to know what best serves me and my health, and to act in accordance with that. SO, I am extremely grateful to Sharon for her help, and highly encourage anyone to go see this amazing woman and gift to our community :)
Excellent Acupuncture Practice – Sharon is professional, highly knowledgeable and has an intuitive sense when practicing. I started seeing her a few years ago for a whip lash injury that would not settle down. Other treatments did not help. My first treatment with Sharon made me feel much better and after several treatments, the injury eventually healed. I continue to see her on a regular basis because Sharon's treatments help me with everything from physical ailments to emotional stress and they work to keep my body in balance. Sharon is straight-forward, listens well, has a good sense of humor and she has great respect for my concerns. I would highly recommend Sharon if you are looking for a first rate, high quality acupuncture experience.
