Sarah founded WellPoint Healing Center to provide acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, and related wellness modalities to children and adults of the South Shore.
Sarah received her Master’s in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from the New England School of Acupuncture (NESA), the oldest college of Asian Medicine in the United States, where she studied both Japanese and Chinese style Acupuncture. She is licensed by the Massachusetts Board of Medicine to practice Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine, and holds a Diplomate in Oriental Medicine from the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). She is also certified in Medical Qigong Energy Healing and Auriculotherapy (ear acupuncture).
Sarah began her professional career in education. She received her undergraduate degree in History and Psychology, as well as her Master’s in Education, from the University of Rochester in upstate NY. After teaching middle school social studies for nine years, and experiencing acupuncture as a patient, Sarah felt called to change direction. She knows first-hand how acupuncture can positively transform someone’s life, and brings that passion for healing to her work with patients. Sarah also brings her past experience as an educator to help guide people along their healing journey. A lifelong learner, Sarah continues to study Asian Medicine and plans to expand her repertoire of healing modalities.
Sarah’s work stems from a deep desire to help people live healthier, happier, and more balanced lives. She is drawn to acupuncture because of her belief that everything—mind, body and spirit—is interconnected, which is also the fundamental philosophy of Asian Medicine. Seeing each patient as a unique individual, Sarah loves the fact that in Asian Medicine it is impossible to dismiss the individual in favor of the symptoms. There is no “standard” treatment since all treatments are tailored to the specific needs of each individual. Sarah works hard to establish an integrated, education based approach, which empowers patients to discover their own tremendous healing power and create wellness in their lives.
Sarah treats people of all ages with a combination of Chinese and Japanese style Acupuncture, herbal medicine, energy work, non-insertive techniques, and cupping. She regularly treats a wide range of conditions, and is experienced in treating acute and chronic pain, women’s health, infertility, mental/emotional issues, insomnia, and digestive issues.
Sarah has been practicing PanGu Shengong, a style of Qigong (energy cultivation), daily for approximately ten years which greatly enhances her personal well-being while also strengthening the power behind her treatments. Sarah is a compassionate and intuitive healer, and often incorporates Medical Qigong/Taoist Energy Healing into her treatments.
