Tell us about Holly Shuman Acupuncture and why you started it. Holly Shuman Acupuncture is a boutique style practice that focuses on Women’s Health with a particular interest in fertility. I started as a general practitioner treating a variety of conditions ~ like pain, insomnia & digestive health for instance ~ but the demand for fertility support was so great I decided to specialize in helping families from preconception to postpartum. I adore Marblehead and was thrilled to relocate my Boston practice closer to home. As the pandemic continued on longer than anticipated, it was the perfect time to introduce myself to a new community.
What is the best piece of business advice you’ve ever received? My mentor encouraged me to “bring my whole, most authentic self” to my work. She also told me to listen without judgment and remain approachable to foster connections with patients. With clinical experience, I witness the best results with patients who feel my genuine compassion for them.
What is your favorite spot in Marblehead, and why? I have a few but I really love to sit by the water at Little Harbor. It’s the sweetest little inlet with gorgeous lighting on a late summer afternoon. It’s even better with a lobster roll!
What is something people would be surprised to learn about you? Prior to practicing acupuncture, I co-created, owned & operated award winning restaurants in Brookline and Natick. After 24 years in the food business, I was ready for a new lifetime pathway.
