Founder of Five Seasons Healing
Sharon has been in clinical practice helping New Yorkers for more than 15 years. She specializes in fertility, perinatal and family healthcare and all aspects of internal medicine. She has trained extensively with leading clinicians in the US and China and enjoys mentoring newer practitioners in the field. In addition to her offerings rooted in classical Chinese medicine, Sharon takes a mindfulness approach with all of her patients and draws from her extensive background in botanical and nutritional supplementation, buddhist meditation, doula care, martial arts, and yoga to provide a truly holistic approach to health and healing.
Sharon is sought out for her expertise in reading the body’s innate signs, deft execution of classical Chinese medicine diagnosis, and the ability to help patients incorporate positive self-care practices with ease.

Susan Wallmeyer, MSTOM, L.Ac.
Susan Wallmeyer has been in practice for over a decade and is passionate about treating all aspects of women’s health. With an undergraduate degree in Biology (pre-medical concentration), her style of practice is informed by both Eastern and Western medicine. She became interested in Chinese Medicine as an undergrad while simultaneously working as a pharmacy technician and taking a course exploring Eastern medical traditions. Susan felt it was the perfect answer to her desire to work with people to improve their health in a more holistic way.
While earning her Masters Degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine, she saw patients at both NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases (Initiative for Women with Disabilities) and San Diego Hospice. After graduation she treated IVF patients onsite at RMA Westside and has worked in both community and private practice settings.
She has recently completed an intensive 2 year program in Maternity Acupuncture Mentorship and Peer Support (MAMPS). This program includes certificates in both perinatal clinical practice and research literacy as well as an advanced certificate in practice and professional outreach. Susan enjoys running, travel, cooking with local produce and can always be found with a new book on women’s health.
Jessica Parks, L.Ac.
Jessica Parks is a NY state licensed and board-certified acupuncturist. She believes healing isn’t something that can be done for you but rather a path one travels, occasionally traversing difficult terrain wherein support is a helping hand. Jessica meets her patients where they are and sees her role as a support person who can help to illuminate the way in times of darkness and difficulty.
After working as a professional dancer in NYC for over a decade, Jessica’s belief in the mind-body-spirit connection, fascination with anatomy, and keen interest in helping others to navigate their journeys led her to pursue a career in Chinese Medicine. She earned her Masters of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine.
Clinical experience includes assisting women through pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period as a birth doula, and providing acupuncture support in the Labor & Delivery department at NYU’s Lutheran medical center. Jessica specializes in women’s health, perinatal support and fertility, acute and chronic pain management, digestive issues, anxiety, and facial rejuvenation techniques.
Jessica is a lifelong yogi and yoga instructor as well as an outdoors enthusiast. On her off-time you can find her online teaching anatomy to aspiring yoga instructors or in Brooklyn having dance parties with her husband and son.
Jayne is a second year student of Chinese Medicine working on her Masters degree at Pacific College of Health & Science in Manhattan. While she has always been interested in science and the human body, Jayne first found her way to the field while battling chronic Lyme Disease and realized what a lifesaver Chinese Medicine can be. Jayne is thrilled to be learning all the ins and outs of Chinese Medicine, and can’t wait to be able to help others heal. When not studying, Jayne loves to be outside, spend time with her family, read fiction, and draw.
