Welcome to our practice! We are a small group practice dedicated to optimizing women’s health and fertility. Together we have been almost 50 years of experience in this field. We work closely together and collaborate to make sure you receive the best possible care.
Sara specializes in women’s health issues. She has a special focus on fertility and is dedicated to helping her patients conceive using acupuncture and herbal medicine alone or in conjunction with IVF or other assisted reproductive protocols. Every treatment is focused on the specific patterns for each individual. Sara strives to create a healthy balance of Eastern and Western practices for her patient’s lives. She is also trained as a labor doula and enjoys working with women throughout their pregnancies as well as postpartum.
Her first child was born via emergency C-section, which was not what she had planned! She set out to attempt a VBAC for her second, and in doing so, spent many hours researching and doing everything she could to make that happen. She had a successful VBAC in 2013, and is deeply committed to helping other moms who desire the same, where possible. Acupuncture can help prepare the body for labor in many ways, and she feels strongly that it is helpful both for labor and the postpartum period as well. Sara is nationally certified in acupuncture and herbal medicine (NCCAOM). She received her Masters of Science from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in New York, and completed post-graduate studies in China. She has treated patients at St.Vincent’s Cancer Center and the Initiative for Women with Disabilities at the Hospital for Joint Diseases.
In addition to women’s health, she treats a wide range of conditions ranging from digestive issues to back pain, and enjoys working with and educating patients who are new to acupuncture and Chinese medicine.
