Welcome to wellness!

Asheville Integrated Acupuncture integrates the principles of Western scientific medicine with traditional Eastern approaches to healthcare, to provide effective, patient-centered care.

Acupuncture works via the body’s natural healing systems

By inserting very fine needles into specific points on the skin, acupuncture stimulates the body’s own healing responses. It is being increasingly understood in Western medical terms and validated by clinical trials. Scientific evidence, which has been building up for the past 30 years, shows that acupuncture stimulates nerves which send messages to the spinal cord and brain, releasing feel-good chemicals, and stimulating anti-inflammatory and painkilling mechanisms in the body.

Pain Management

Acupuncture can help with most types of pain, including headaches, neck, shoulder and back pain, and is a safe, natural alternative to potentially harmful pain medications.

Women's Health

By restoring balance in the nervous and hormone systems, acupuncture can help women regulate their menstrual cycles, cultivate optimal fertility, and support a thriving pregnancy.

Stress Management

Widely accepted as an effective means of stress management, acupuncture strongly promotes calm and relaxation and regulating sleep and digestive function.

Respiratory Health

Acupuncture helps maintain the health of the respiratory and immune systems, helping prevent allergies, asthma colds and flu.

As a surgery resident, I have long hours on my feet, contort my body into uncomfortable positions in the OR, and sleep on crappy futons in the hopsital – all of these things combined with stress have taken a toll on my neck and back. My issue got so severe one day I was left crying in my bed because I couldn’t even move my neck. It wasn’t until I found Aurora that I have started to heal; after one session I was back to myself, and regular maintenance appointments have been crucial in my recovery. As a Western-trained doctor I was skeptical at first, but seeing Aurora for acupuncture literally saved my ability to have a physically demanding job. Kristy

If anyone is looking for an AMAZING Acupuncture Practitioner, I highly recommend Lisa Sherman. Lisa is brilliant in her knowledge of how the physical and energetic body systems work. She is a skillful listener and incredibly intuitive. I fully trust that she knows exactly what I need each session to experience the desired results. Lisa makes me feel safe, seen and deeply cared for. Her presence makes me feel so comfortable that I am able to completely relax, allowing me to receive the maximum benefits of the treatment. I started seeing her years ago to help with seasonal allergies. The acupuncture and Chinese herbs she recommended helped relieve the allergy symptoms after a couple visits. I continue to see her regularly for self care maintenance. I love it. She is adaptable and able to help me with whatever needs attention that day. From allergies, to heartbreak to the common cold, she knows the right approach to help you heal anything. Ananda

I’ve been seeing Aurora for over a year. I was initially referred to her for acupuncture to help with symptoms of Lyme Disease. She was able to provide treatments that not only helped with those symptoms but also helped with several other chronic conditions that I manage. Aurora has a calm presence which is so helpful with my type a fire like personality. I would trust Aurora with any of my family members. Tali

I think of myself as a fairly level headed and pragmatic sort of guy, so when it comes to my aches and pains I usually keep them to myself, chin up and move forward. Did I mention that weight training is one of my pastimes and yoga is not practiced enough? This combination led me to a recent situation that found my left arm hurting from elbow to upper tricep so badly that I considered going to an orthopedic surgeon to see if surgery might be required. Before traveling down that traditional path a friend recommended to give a less traditional method a chance. Long story short, I spent three sessions with Lisa working her cupping and acupuncture technique on my arm and I am totally blown away with the results! I have recommended Lisa and her practice to local people in Asheville and beyond. Jack
