Sherrie is profoundly aware of Acupuncture’s power as a preventative and healing modality and how it can improve the health and wellbeing of her clients. Sherrie’s diverse experience as a Registered Nurse in surgical and cardiac intensive care, oncology, and post-operative open heart surgery at various hospitals, including the Clinical Center at NIH, has led her to appreciate the benefits western diagnostics and treatment can offer. Many of her clients benefit from integrating East/West medical approaches. She wants to know how your western treatments are going, and she also wants to make sure that her treatment plan supports and facilitates the healthcare decisions you are making with other providers. She will help you understand how acupuncture, combined with dietary and lifestyle changes, and nutritional supplementation, can support your western care and, at the same time, reduce the need for as many prescription drugs. She is eager to maintain a relationship with your western medical providers, and engage in regular contact with them to optimize your health outcomes.
