Acupuncture is a healing technique that people are constantly curious over. Though, very few people know where to find quality service. Those interested, absolutely must see the masterful Sharon Sherman, owner of Empirical Point acupuncture, our top pick for Philadelphia’s Best in Acupuncture! Sherman has been working as an acupuncturist for 11 years and takes pride in her extensive knowledge of pain management and Oriental Medicine. Sherman offers services in two convenient locations, Center City and Chestnut Hill; two offices with one goal in mind: to heal.
Feeling taken care of is an understatement after a visit at Empirical Point, as Sherman is gracious and calming—not only caring for my pain points in acupuncture, but for my well-being in general. Her comprehensive approach to learning about new clients includes an in depth questionnaire which helps provide important details into how Sherman will heal each client. I thoroughly enjoyed our in-depth consultation, allowing me to express my points of discomfort. Sharon wanted to help loosen my stress knots and relieve knee pain I had been having, in just one session. Being a baby when it comes to needles was a fear quickly overcome when Sharon tried one on my hand just as an example, letting me know what I was in for. During the session, Sharon popped in a few times just to make sure I was feeling ok; I was floating in relaxation land. After painless needle insertion, the calm of meditative music softly playing, I feel into a comfortable ease and drifted off while the magic of healing happened. I left feeling lighter and overall in a state of rejuvenation. Ultimately, Empirical Point offers excellent results in just one hour-long session in peaceful surroundings. It doesn’t hurt that, after visiting Sharon’s Chestnut Hill location, I learned that Empirical Point is one of the cleanest, more comforting acupuncture locations in Philadelphia.
