“I want to share with others the beauty and art of deep restorative healing that acupuncture offers from the energetic level to the physical level.”
I received acupuncture treatments from Shari for chronic pain due to osteoarthritis. My experience was transformative. Over time, my relationship with pain changed, as well as my overall somatic experience. My life is more integrated and joyful thanks to Shari.
I experienced noticeable physiological changes with significantly less inflammation and muscle spasms: a “new normal” that has endured. I truly would not have believed this could be possible after decades of, at times, debilitating pain. Shari is a born teacher, wise and compassionate, who affirms the wisdom of our own healing processes. I cannot possibly recommend Shari highly enough. A.Becker
