Sarah is a licensed acupuncturist, board-certified herbalist, and a member of the NCCAOM, ILSA, INSA and the ASA. She received her master's degree in Science and Chinese medicine from Pacific College of Health and Science and has over a decade of experience in the healthcare field. She entered the world of holistic medicine because she was unimpressed by some of the gaps in the pharmaceutical system and was looking for something more comprehensive.
As a teenager, she began seeing an acupuncturist for symptoms that many other specialists could not explain or treat. Like many patients, she sees, she discovered acupuncture out of desperation when even exploratory surgery didn't help and still couldn't diagnose her. She was shocked when not only did Chinese medicine completely resolve her issues, but her acupuncturist could actually explain what was happening in her body better than the various doctors she had seen.
Since finishing her degree and entering clinical practice, she has shared the knowledge from both ancient Eastern and modern Western practice to best benefit each person's needs. She combines her passions for patient advocacy and education to help empower anyone to take charge of their health. She is a practitioner and clinician, writer and teacher.
Sarah became the Acupuncture Translator to bridge the gaps between Eastern and Western language and theory, showing how they can work together in harmony.
