It is a rare privilege to work with clients, to be a catalyst for healing, and to see people heal and grow.  Because my training in Chinese Medicine and Herbalism emphasizes the unique qualities of each individual patient my practice is continually refreshed with new insights and surprises.  I am finding that our bodies (and, on a larger scale, our whole ecosystem) has a remarkable capacity for self-healing.  The treatments I use start my clients on a path to self-healing and work to gently remove the obstructions that hinder their progress.  To my teachers and to my clients (who continue to teach me every day) I want to say: “thank you for this opportunity to practice this subtle, amazing medicine.”

Our abilities as acupuncturists and herbalists are founded on the great teachers from whom we have learned Chinese Medicine

David and Dr. Richard Tan in Tianjin, China

When David graduated from Acupuncture school in 1999 a friend  who had been practicing  acupuncture for 12 years, took him aside and introduced David to a style of acupuncture called the Balance Method. This style of treatment is able to instantly reduce or eliminate pain with reliable and predictable results. David has traveled and taken numerous classes with Dr. Richard Tan, the Chinese acupuncturist who brought this style of acupuncture to America. Thank you Dr. Tan.  Your work lives on and our patients benefit from your teachings every day we practice. 

Susan Johnson

 Shari and David were both able to study a style of acupuncture introduced to the world by Master Tung Ching-Chang. We learned Master Tung's style of practice in a series of classes with Susan Johnson in Madison, WI.  Master Tung's style is closely related to Dr. Tan's and can be applied to functional issues like allergies, fertility, menopause, and digestive problems. Susan Johnson continues to teach at: http://tungspoints.com/

Shari and David have continued to study Chinese Herbal Medicine with Sharon Weizenbaum since 2009. Sharon's ability to clarify the complexities of Chinese Herbal Theory has given us the insights we need to successfully diagnose and formulate custom herbal compounds for our clients.  Sharon teaches the Graduate Mentorship Program and practices Chinese Medicine in her clinic at 86 Henry St, Amherst, MA 01002  http://whitepinehealingarts.org/
