Insomnia & Anxiety

Sharon is a deeply empathetic and gifted healer. I went to Sharon with acute insomnia and anxiety, accompanied by a terrible case of creepy-crawly itching. Perhaps like many people who consult an acupuncturist, I had sought help from my regular doctor, as well as a psychiatrist, and the drugs they prescribed actually made me feel worse. At my first meeting with Sharon, I was nothing short of completely overwhelmed by the symptoms I was experiencing. After listening carefully to my history of symptoms, she assured me that what I was experiencing was nothing out of the ordinary in terms of what she is used to seeing and treating. She gave me full confidence that she could help me, which she did. I felt significant relief the day after my first acupuncture session and, along with the Chinese herbs she prescribed, after a month of treatment, I felt better than I had in a long time. When you come from a place of such deep suffering and fear, and someone is able to offer you not just relief, but also a new perspective on your mind and body, it is impossible not to be affected by the healer and the healer’s tools. Sharon listens to your concerns attentively and uses her impressive wealth of knowledge to alleviate your pain, and she does so with enormous compassion. She works not only on your immediate symptoms to bring relief as soon as possible, but simultaneously works on finding and treating the source of your symptoms so that you can maintain your health. I am forever grateful to Sharon – and to TCM – for helping me to get well, and will continue to see her to maintain good health.

Welcome to Five Seasons Acupuncture and Herbs

Sharon Yeung MS, LAc and her associates at Five Seasons Healing in New York City offer acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, massage, qi gong and lifestyle and nutritional counseling to treat all your health concerns.

Traditional Chinese medicine approaches the human body as part of the natural world and thus inextricably linked to natural cycles. When we eat peas in the spring and pumpkin in the fall, when we play under the sun in the summer and cozy up to a fire in the winter, we resonate with the earth’s natural rhythms and achieve a greater sense of health and well-being.

In Chinese medicine, each year is divided into five seasons—spring, summer, late summer, autumn, and winter. Just as different seasons call for different forms of care, so do the different seasons of our lives.

At Five Seasons Healing, Sharon Yeung MS, LAc, recognizes the distinct needs of all patients young and old. She uses the tools of Chinese medicine to restore harmony and balance to their lives.

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can be especially useful in treating a whole range of women’s health conditions and promote fertility, a healthy pregnancy and childbirth. Sharon Yeung MS, LAc combines her expertise in acupuncture and Chinese medicine with her training as a labor doula to offer the best possible care for her expecting patients.

For a complimentary 20 minute phone consultation or to book an appointment, please feel free to call 917.538.5755 or email info@fiveseasonshealing.com

TCM and Prostate Health

Posted on by Sharon Yeung LAc

I have noticed recently that there has been an overwhelming amount of information in the news, in both Eastern and Western Medicine reports, on the controversial nature of PSA testing in regards to men’s health.  PSA, or prostate specific antigen, is the protein produced by prostate cells, and the main screening agent for prostate cancer. While there are reasons why PSA levels can elevate that don’t necessarily mean that a man has prostate cancer, including prostate infections (prostatitis), urinary tract [...]
