Traditional Chinese Medicine including the use of acupuncture is one of the oldest forms of medicine in the world. It has been used traditionally to help promote health and to prevent and realign imbalances. Acupuncture was developed on the understanding that there are meridians that run throughout the human body where energy or qi flows.
Acupuncture is used to keep the qi flowing to promote optimal health, alleviate pain, prevent disease and overall improve balance and wellness in the body. It can work wonderfully for everything from a simple common cold to fertility and hormone regulation to chronic illness and pain.
Dr. Sarah believes strongly in the power of integrating Western and Eastern medicinal practices. She fell deeply in love with Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture which was integrated into her Naturopathic Medical Training and licensure in Canada. When she moved to California she furthered her studies in Chinese Medicine to obtain her State Board License in Acupuncture and combine her knowledge in Chinese Medicine with her Naturopathic practice. Dr. Christine is also a dually licensed Naturopathic Doctor and Acupuncturist and uses Chinese Medicine in conjunction with Naturopathic Care.
