I recently brought my daughter for sessions with Sharon Heller 2-3 times per week for 4 weeks in a row. My daughter has been in physical therapy 2 times per week, occupational therapy 3 times per week, and speech therapy 3 times per week, for the past 18 months. I have seen much more physical and cognitive progression from 4 weeks of sessions with Sharon than I have in 18 months of traditional therapies. The changes that have occurred so far since beginning the intensive with Sharon are incredible. Within 1 or 2 sessions my daughter started tolerating being on her tummy for extended periods of time. She has also begun eating regularly, as well as vocalizing much more than before.
My 23 month old has a very rare genetic condition, which has resulted in several different challenges to her health and development. She struggles with severe muscle weakness, seizures, global developmental delays, and other issues. Her head is in the 100% percentile of the growth chart. One of the bones on her forehead seemed to be protruding in a very noticeable way on one side of her forehead, and because of this we were referred to a cranial surgeon for a consult, which took place 2 days after our last session with Sharon.
After examining my daughter, the surgeon said that her head shape looked “pretty normal” to him. This is completely different from the shape her head was before our sessions with Sharon. About 2 weeks into our sessions I noticed the boney protrusion was significantly less obvious than it had been, so much so that it was no longer noticeable to others.
From our very first session, Sharon spoke about the importance of freeing the sacrum and the atlas bone in her neck, and suggested that I speak with our chiropractor about adjustments. During a couple of our sessions Sharon also mentioned some very specific things regarding the pre-birth formation and development of my daughter’s neural tube, brain, nose and palate during first few weeks as an embryo.
These were things that I had been aware of because they were discovered by a neurologist through an MRI a year earlier and also with a functional medicine doctor. I had never mentioned these things to her, and the only possible way to know about them would have been to see the MRI pictures, which, of course, she didn’t see. Funny enough, we’ve been seeing our chiropractor for nearly a year, and Sharon also did not know that at EVERY SINGLE appointment he adjusts her atlas and her sacrum.
In addition Sharon suggested that there were possible issues with my daughter’s thyroid and liver that needed to be addressed. At her suggestion I also consulted our clinical pharmacists who said the same thing. My daughter had some bloodwork done which confirmed slightly abnormal liver and thyroid levels.
I am lucky to have had Sharon in my life as a young adult. After spending time with Sharon, I had clarity on where to focus my energy and how to make the right decision when it all seemed too much. This support benefited me in High School, with college decisions, with job decisions, and in many other areas. Sharon’s support was critical when I lost my best friend at 17. With Sharon’s care, wisdom, humor, and compassion, I was able to move through the pain and anger to a place of love and acceptance. Sharon was instrumental in guiding me through the various stages of grief and becoming thankful for the time I did have with him.
Thanks, Sharon, for the amazing work with our son!! I’m not sure if we can give enough gratitude for all the healing, especially walking after the injury.
Thanks again for everything we achieved with your work!! You are a blessing for our family and we are grateful to you!
16 years ago I took my youngest daughter to work with Sharon Heller. My daughter was 11 years old at the time. She could neither read nor write due to a brain injury. 9 months later my daughter was reading on almost grade-level. In the 15 years ensuing, Sharon has continued working with my daughter, myself and to a lesser extent, my immediate family. I am a very practical person. If an approach is not working, I do not stick around. The fact that Sharon has been working with our family for 16 years speaks for itself. Sharon’s work is holistic, intuitive and multi-dimensional. The results are phenomenal.

I have had the privilege to co-treat with Sharon on numerous occasions all across the globe. These experiences are some of the best in my life. Sharon’s depth of knowledge, effectiveness in treatments, heart-centered approach, humor, and her never-ending thirst for learning make her a top-ranked therapist. In addition, assisting her in classes has been an absolute delight. These classes are impactful, filled with knowledge, laughter, and love. She is absolutely one of the best teachers I’ve had the honor of working with in my entire career as a therapist.
