Sarah Sanborn

Acupuncture & Massage

"I strive to educate patients about their injuries or medical conditions while also empowering them to understand their bodies. Today’s culture has taught us to look at our bodies as machines that, when defective, are taken to the doctor to be fixed. I believe that there is no such thing as a perfect body, but there is such a thing as a pain-free body. Acupuncture, moxabustion, and orthopedic bodywork are tools I use in helping patients bring their bodies, minds and spirits into a balance."

As a Doctor of Acupuncture and Asian Medicine practitioner, Sarah primarily focuses on chronic pain syndromes.  However, she regularly works with sports medicine, all aspects of women's health (menstrual disorders, fertility difficulties, pregnancy, post-partum care), psycho-emotional disorders, auto-immune disorders, and cancer care.

When not with patients, Sarah also acts as a Teaching Assistant in advanced needle technique, acupuncture channels & points, as well as clinical research classes.
