Sara- I just wanted to thank you for all of your help over the last week. I ended up going into labor on Monday night and delivering on Tuesday with no induction! I stayed home through the night. Labor moved a little more quickly then I expected. I made it to 7 cm before I had a working epidural. I only had to push 12 times and our sweet girl was here. Thank you again I don’t think I would have avoided the pitocin or had such a quick delivery without your help! -LR
3 years of serious plantar fasciitis issues and back/shoulder problems that were not getting any better with traditional medical approaches pushed me to look for alternative ways of managing the pain. I tried acupuncture 16 months ago and haven’t looked back. Sara has helped me to realize that there is relief out there. I just had to be open minded. My plantar fasciitis was better after 9 treatments and with follow up treatments hasn’t come back. My back is also much better. Sara is very open to questions and is always willing to explain how the treatments work. If you are worried about the needles… they are super small and you can’t feel them at all. The treatments are really relaxing! I am more than satisfied with her services and will continue to see her to ensure good health in the future. When you have an open mind anything is possible! -WD
I have used acupuncture for about 5 years now and am a firm believer in its benefits. Sara has always taken time to listen to me and treat me accordingly. I would highly recommend her to anyone. -PJ
“Highly recommended! Sara is compassionate and knowledgeable. She listens carefully, asks great questions, and uses a variety of techniques to address issues. The acupuncture is definitely making a difference in my overall health, and each session is a relaxing treat.” – KU
Hi Sara – Hope your doula training went well!! I wanted to let you know we had a beautiful healthy baby girl on Monday 4/20 at 330 in the morning! No pitocin needed- I ended up going into labor right after my dose of cytotec and had her start to finish in 3.5 hours!!! She is perfect. She weighed 5 lbs 7 oz at birth and has already gained 2 oz! Thank you so much for everything the past couple weeks and helping prepare me for a perfect birth experience!!!! – EO
