Currently the CEO and Licensed Acupuncturist at Chinese Red Acupuncture, Sharon uses a unique methodology which incorporates Eastern and Western procedures to forge a systematic relationship with her clients. Using functional medicine and an emphasis on disease prevention, she has alleviated thousands of patients’ body aches with tiny needles, along with high-quality Chinese herbs and whole-food nutritional supplements in her spa-like private practice for over 10 years. Aside from clean and effective products, she also offers food-sensitivity testing and helps purge toxins and old homework papers from her patients during detox sessions.
At Achieving Balance Creatively Acupuncture, licensed practitioner Staysea Sumner collaborates with patients to restore the energy and equilibrium of the body. Staysea combs through an extensive medical history to identify the root of health concerns, then administers a mélange of ancient Chinese therapies.

Staysea can also prescribe cupping therapy to pull toxins from the body and herbal medicine to fill in the nutritional holes created by eating a Western diet of processed food and expired greeting cards.
