Empirical Point, LLC Launches “Healthy New Year 2011″ with Alternative Medicine

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

Philadelphia Healthy Living Events, News and Patient Information Programs and Tips & Guidance Featured as Part of Campaign for a Healthier 2011

Empirical Point, LLC, a leading Philadelphia Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine practice, located in Chestnut Hill, has launched a “Healthy New Year 2011” campaign to give patients more hands-on information and real-world tips about how to live healthier in 2011. This new program kicked off in early February and started with a series of online information and news, which can be found at www.philadelphia-acupuncture.com.

“Along with resolutions and promises to improve our health, the new year also brings a renewed commitment to living well and living healthy,” stated Sharon Sherman, M.S.O.M., D.OM., L.OM and founder of Empirical Point in Philadelphia. “At Empirical Point, we are committed to providing patients with a Chinese medicine and acupuncture practice dedicated to improving their health. I don’t just treat patients. I work together with them to get to the root of their ailments and conditions and to then map out an interactive and holistic plan to improve their overall well being. This Healthy New Year 2011 campaign is just one more way for us to interact with our patients and provide the latest news and tips on how to be well.”

Healthy New Year 2011 kicks off with “Alternative Medicine – Not So Alternative Anymore” – a program that is looking at the growing use and success of alternative medicine in the U.S. Despite the fact that Chinese Medicine and acupuncture have been used for thousands of years, they are just beginning to really take hold in many Western cultures as effective medical treatments. Empirical Point is using its website, blog, social media and events at its offices to explore and provide information about the growth of alternative medicine in the Western world – and how these “alternative” treatments may be helpful for patients who may have not yet considered them for common conditions like stress or chronic pain.

Healthy New Year 2011 campaign will also address the following topics later this year:

  • Pain – How to Address and Relieve it with Chinese Medicine
  • Building a Strong Immune System…and a Stronger You
  • Stressed? How to Relieve Anxiety and Be at your Best
