Where Health Begins
Meet Sabrina Marie
Licensed Acupuncturist & Chinese Health Practitioner
Sabrina Marie MS LAc is a second generation acupuncturist, her grandfather was an MD and acupuncturist who practiced in Hong Kong as well as one of the first to become licensed in the United States. Sabrina has grown up with an innate sense of chinese medical philosophy and an understanding of the importance of holistic health.
It is Sabrina’s philosophy that health begins from the inside. Diet, life style choices and daily stressors all effect wellbeing. By educating and empowering her patients to make the best choices for themselves Sabrina helps people to thrive at their most optimal level. Furthermore she understands the intimate connection between the mind, body and spirit. When there is an imbalance in one area, inevitably there will be an imbalance in the others. Taking this into consideration, Sabrina assesses her patients by approaching all three perspectives to provide the most comprehensive care available. Using an integrative approach and drawing from her broad spectrum of knowledge and experience Sabrina may choose to use acupuncture, herbal remedies, stretching exercises or dietary suggestions to facilitate healing and balance.
Why Chinese Medicine?

Pregnancy & Postpartum
Acupuncture is a gentle approach to common pregnancy issues such as nausea, heartburn, swelling, breech presentation. It will also help prepare the body for labor and potentially shorten labor time.
During postpartum it can help the body recover more quickly, increase milk production and normalize the hormones.
Acupuncture is the perfect compliment to a healthy diet and exercise regimen. Helping to curb appetite and increase metabolism, while reducing cortisol and regulating insulin levels.
Acupuncture helps reduce stress hormones, increase endorphins and shift brain waves into a calmer state; thereby allowing the body to relax, reducing anxiety, improve sleep and better manage future stress.
Everything about an appointment with Sabrina is healing. She is truly a master of her craft. She works quickly and skillfully. In one session, she freed me from a debilitating muscle spasm in my mid back. I was so astounded, as it had been persistent and resistant to other treatments, that I have started seeing her weekly for anything at all.
