Fertility

"Sharon and her team are deeply knowledgeable about the...art of acupuncture. They also bring a very practical and healthy perspective to the world of western fertility treatments. I looked to their wisdom as I was in a whirlwind of decision making, learning how to take care of myself and my body while undergoing the stress of fertility treatments with accompanied uncertainty."

"[Five Seasons] helped me to conceive when traditional doctors claimed it would be impossible for me to do so without major surgery. I am now days away from giving birth and eternally grateful to Five Seasons."

"The Five Seasons Practitioners are incredibly thoughtful, smart, empathetic and effective providers and played a key role in helping both to treat my anxiety and prepare my body for pregnancy. They bring a wealth of knowledge to their practice and I always knew that I could trust their judgement and clinical expertise. They care about their patients deeply and made me feel as though our work together was a true partnership....Through both herbs and acupuncture, they successfully helped to treat my PCOS and prepare my body to attain and sustain a pregnancy and for that I am forever thankful."

Pregnancy & Maternal Health

"Sharon has been with me throughout my entire journey to becoming a mother. I started after an early miscarriage, and through the assistance of acupuncture and herbs we achieved pregnancy quickly. She supported me through my pregnancy when I had serious hip pain. I had a very difficult postpartum period, and unfortunately, my milk supply was low and I went to Sharon for lactation support. Sharon is wise, caring, and very skilled and would recommend her for fertility treatment, pregnancy support, and lactation support."

"I started acupuncture around week 20 of my pregnancy with Suzanne Connole to address typical pregnancy symptoms including nausea, indigestion and intense back pain which started closer to the 3rd trimester. With each treatment, I noticed significant improvements in my symptoms and overall mood. Suzanne has been an amazing addition to my team and I believe the acupuncture has been a tremendous help in making it to full term with as little discomfort as possible."

"Sharon has been a true support through my journey to become pregnant and throughout my first trimester. It's been invaluable to have someone treating me holistically and keeping both my physical and emotional well being in mind, at a time when my healthcare can feel split among so many different places and people. Sharon is caring and patient (and fun!) and always leaves space to listen and discuss whatever's going on at the beginning of each session, and then thoughtfully addresses the current issues. The other staff and facilities are also great and create a simple, calming environment. I leave feeling relaxed and cared for. I would recommend Sharon and Five Seasons to anyone!"

"Sharon and the other practitioners at Five Seasons Healing are amazing. I have been seeing Sharon for 4+ years and she has helped me with so many things from colds and allergies to conception. In the last 2.5 years Sharon has supported me while trying to conceive and I ultimately think that it's thanks to her that I was able to naturally. I have had a wonderful pregnancy, feeling great with good energy and low adverse symptoms. I know that both my treatments and my herbs prescribed have made all the difference in my experience. I am very grateful to get to work with them each week."

She's been extremely helpful throughout my pregnancy navigating & combatting the usual aches and pains, while also proactively leading me down a path of overall wellness.

"I highly recommend Five Seasons Healing! Suzanne was incredibly knowledgeable and a great listener. They were a great support both physically and emotionally while I was trying to get pregnant and then during what was a difficult and considered a high risk pregnancy."

"Sharon is incredibly attentive, compassionate, empathetic, and intuitive. Sharon has helped me pre and postpartum, as I first went to see her when I was 18 months postpartum and feeling depleted from extended breastfeeding and lack of sleep. She helped me regain my strength, balance my hormones, and become pregnant again. And most recently, Chinese herbs/medicine cured an episode of mastitis for me. This was amazing and I was SO grateful not to have to take antibiotics."

Women’s Health

"The entire Five Seasons team is absolutely incredible! Sharon and Alison are extremely knowledgeable and have taken so much time to figure out a treatment plan that works for me. I was certain surgery was the only thing that was going to fix complications I was having as a result of a fibroid, [but] not only am I finally feeling like my old self again [and] they gave me my options back. I would encourage anyone having gynecological issues to go see them!"

"I had been dealing with HPV and high-risk abnormal pap-smears for 6 years. As a last resort I decided to begin treatment using acupuncture and herbs and in 5 months I had my first normal pap smear. My GYN and Oncologist were both shocked and beyond impressed."

"After a rave recommendation from a close friend, I went to Five Seasons Healing to work on my injured knees, as well as my erratic women's cycle, arthritic and digestive issues. In less than a year, I can now run - even uphill! - with my dog, where as before I could not walk without real pain. My menstrual cycle has evened out, my arthritis has decreased drastically - at least by 90%- and I've lost eight pounds. [They are] extraordinarily knowledgeable and deeply intuitive practitioners of this wonderful healing art. I would highly recommend Five Seasons Healing to anyone needing help on a wide range of medical issues. They listen to their clients and work together to provide excellent and comprehensive health care for all."

"Sharon is typically the first person I turn to for health & wellness concerns and over the years she has helped me work through issues related to my thyroid condition, hormonal shifts, general anxiety as well as plantar fasciitis, shin splints, lower back pain, etc. I have recommended tons of friends and all of them feel as fortunate as I do!"

"For years i have suffered a winter allergy that was unbearable. No doctors Western or Eastern could help me until I found Five Seasons. A combination of acupuncture and Chinese herbs actually cured me completely of this problem. It changed my life and I am so incredibly grateful. I am a lifelong fan now. Thank you, thank you, thank you…"

Pain:

"After 6 years of constant lower back pain that was severely limiting my ability to be fun and active with my kids, I gave acupuncture and cupping a try at Five Seasons Healing. It has been nothing short of a life-changing experience. The pain that used to cloud my day is largely gone and I haven't felt this good in many years. I highly recommend Five Seasons Healing to anyone who is looking to alter the way they feel about pain and their mind and body's relationship to it."

"Sharon quite literally saved my life, and changed it for the better as well. I was in such excruciating pain with a mysterious bladder ailment; doctors were stumped for NINE weeks, and I knew I couldn't go on much longer unless something drastic were done. In a last-ditch effort I found Five Seasons Healing--thank god! At my first visit, Sharon spent over an hour with me, getting to know me and learning about my medical history...and after THREE DAYS of drinking the medicine she prescribed me, I passed a massive kidney stone that had been lodged inside me that no other doctor could find with either ultrasounds or CAT scans."

"Alison has been key to my ability to function day to day with my migraines. Medication from a neurologist would not relieve the pain, nausea and irritation of light and sound. After two sessions, my migraine was gone! Alison continued to work with me to ensure that we were dealing not only with the symptoms but also the triggers. Five Seasons is truly focused on healing and improving the health (lives) of their patients!"

Pediatrics:

"My eight year old son, has had sleep issues and was always catching colds and fevers since birth. I was unable to find any solutions until we met Sharon. Sharon made my son feel immediately at ease and the acupuncture was painless and has a very relaxing effect. Since the treatments, my son is sleeping really well and it has been the longest span of time since he has not been sick."

"Sharon has been amazing treating my 5 year old son who suffers from severe seasonal allergies and eczema. Prior to meeting Sharon, we've tried different medications, creams, soaps... with not much success. She was able to heal my son completely. Her treatments were fun, my son was able to trust her with the needles and not be scared of it."

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture

"Facial acupuncture with Five Seasons Healing was one of the best things I did for myself this year. I have had discoloration around my eyes and slight acne my entire life. After only 1 session there was a noticeable difference in skin texture and smoothness. By the third session people were asking me what I had done to my skin. Since facial acupuncture works on the inside and outside, there is just a glow that you get which doesn’t come with a regular facial. I completed the 10 treatment course and am now on a maintenance schedule. Highly recommend!!"
