Sarah holds a Masters of Science and Bachelor of Nutrition from the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine, which is one of the first established schools of Asian Medicine in the United States. She is licensed by the state of Illinois and is nationally certified by the National Certification of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Sarah's interest in Chinese Medicine began while she was working in a fast-paced, high-stress corporate job. Conventional medicine did not help manage her stress and the aches and pains of working long hours at a computer. She decided to try acupuncture and herbal medicine and was astonished by the immediate and lasting effects. She made the decision to study Chinese Medicine so she could spread the powerful healing affects to others. Her treatment strategy is both individualized and holistic.
