I was not a fan of needles and acupuncture, but due to some back pain I was struggling with, I decided to try Lisa when she told me we would work together and take it slow. We did a thorough intake of just talking before I laid down on the table.She used only a few needles instead of the overload I had another time I tried acupuncture, and she did some cupping and heat therapy, which helped me to relax. She stayed with me the entire time in case I had another panic attack. The result lasted for 2 weeks- my back pain was much less and I was able to move more freely. I also had more energy and less headaches. Highly recommended!
Lisa is a delightful and gifted professional! From my first conversation with Lisa, I immediately felt at ease with her intelligence, knowledge, competence and keen listening skills. She has the perfect blend of skill and compassion. I trust her explicitly. I felt better after my first treatment. Lisa is such an asset to our community!
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.
After ripping my hamstring almost 13 years ago, I resided to the fact that I would always have daily pain. I initially sought treatment from Lisa for a strained muscle in my back, it was so successful we started to focus on my hamstring. Lisa’s treatment has been the only element that has alleviated me of continuous hamstring pain. I have such confidence and trust in Lisa. Her compassion, knowledge, and humor combine to holistically provide me care, physically and mentally.
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.
Lisa was part of a team that help me resolve a painful foot issue which involved not only plantar fasciitis but also my big toe joint. Her approach looked at not only the problem area but also the areas further away that were potentially creating the issue. I have resolved a painful problem without medication and it was worth it!! Lisa is insightful, knowledgeable and kind.
I started treatment with Lisa Sherman several years ago, and let me start out by saying I always feel better after being treated by her. Lisa had a strong background in Molecular Biology before she was led to acupuncture via Tai Chi. That certainly has helped her develop her encyclopedic knowledge of the human body and its afflictions. She spends a great deal of time asking questions and listening to your answers, and then bases her treatment on the information she has gained (which is, no doubt, responsible for the amazing results that she achieves). But the best thing that I can say about her is she is a True Healer.
