We are all part of the web of life. Our thoughts, actions, and the way we show up in the world are intrinsically connected to the way the web either supports or inhibits life itself. Supporting individuals through thorough health care supports their positive, creative, and constructive influences and is therefor part of the healing of the planet.

-I have had the pleasure to study with, work with, and be treated by Jen in the past six years. In classes I attended that she helped facilitate, her presence brought a beautiful sense of safety and care. Working with her was inspiring as she brought a vast perspective and grounded confidence to the clinic and everyone who came in on her shifts spoke of feeling very well heard and understood. I can attest to that sentiment as I was also a patient at times. Jen helped me so much through a very tough passage of my life and helped me to hold a perspective that allowed much healing. Whoever comes into Jen’s presence has much to be grateful for!

-I've been a patient of Sarah's for over 5 years for both routine visits and specific health maladies of the mind and body. Her approach involves listening to me intently, taking my pulse, then intuitively assessing what treatment is beneficial for that particular visit. I have the utmost confidence Sarah knows exactly what my body/mind needs as I always leave each visit both relieved and relaxed. She's a very genuine, caring person who provides great care. I could not recommend her highly enough.
-I started receiving acupuncture treatments from Sarah four years ago, after major abdominal surgery. I had never experienced the level of deep relaxation I felt during our sessions. Repeated treatments provided me with the ability to tap into that state of mind during stressful experiences. Sarah treated my scars and they diminished. She treated my grief at the death of my father and terminal illness of my mother. Moreover, Sarah has consistently identified where in my body I am storing the stress, and helped me to release it. She has introduced me to sound therapies, binaural beats, mantra chanting, and sound baths, which work on brain neuroplasticity to recover from trauma. In short, Sarah’s education and experience in Eastern and indigenous medicine practices creates in her an extraordinary healer. I am grateful to have had her in my life these last few years, and look forward to continuing to receive her healing touch.
