Nancy Sherman

Licensed Acupuncturist

Nancy graduated from the UW with a BA in East Asian Studies then enjoyed a 20-year career as a travel professional. She traveled to destinations in Europe, South Asia, East Asia, Africa and the South Pacific as a tour host and passenger sales agent for an airline, a cruise line, and tour companies. Nancy then decided to return to and delve deeper into her lifelong interest in Chinese culture by studying thehealing art of acupuncture, earning her Master of Acupuncture from Northwest Institute of Acupuncture& Oriental Medicine in 2001. Since then she has practiced this ancient traditional medicine in a wide variety of settings including integrated clinics, public health, community clinics and as a volunteer provider.

Nancy loves to use her acupuncture skills and techniques to help people along a path of self-healing and

wellness. Remedies that promote health from within and that focus on the entire person are her

passion. Often a state of good health can come from simple little changes that are natural and inherent

in a person if we can provide in our treatment guidance to the body, mind and spirit to move toward

energetic balance and harmony. Being able to assist people in feeling better and moving toward a

healthy life makes her job a joy.

Nancy is an experienced practitioner who has successfully treated many patients for conditions such as

headaches, insomnia, musculoskeletal problems, digestive disorders, sinusitis, arthritis, pain syndromes,

fatigue, menstrual disorders, pregnancy care and adjunctive care for cancer patients during traditional

medical treatment. She has a special interest in helping people with mental health issues such as

depression and anxiety and has worked both as staff provider and volunteer in clinics and agencies that

treat people coping with addiction and emotional health problems.

A little more about Nancy:

Personally, Nancy has recently moved to the Tacoma area (her childhood home) from Seattle to enjoy a

quieter lifestyle. She is very happy to be here and loves her new home with her semi-retired musician

husband, standard poodle and nearby family. She is thrilled to join Erin and Blue Peacock in extending

the healing services of this wonderful and compassionate acupuncture clinic to more in the community.

Outside of her acupuncture practice, Nancy’s interests include music, art, travel, day-hiking. She is an

avid believer in the physical, mental and spiritual benefits of yoga, has practiced for over 20 years,

studies with Richard Schactel in the Iyengar tradition and is a Registered Yoga Trainer. She can often

suggest poses for people to help with alignment, relaxation and self-care for pain issues.
