Offering Acupuncture to Fort Saskatchewan, Strathcona County, Edmonton and Area clients. 


Acupuncture is an ancient form of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It involves the insertion of fine sterile disposable needles into selected acupuncture points of the body. These points are located along channels of energy, called meridians, which run through the body and over its surface. Meridians are like rivers flowing through the body to irrigate and nourish the tissues. An obstruction in the movement of these rivers is like a dam that backs up into others causing symptoms, pain and disease.

She is also accredited with a Physical & Occupational Therapy Assistant Diploma and specializes in fertility, women's health, and sports medicine.

Acupuncture Points

Acupuncture points are located on areas of the skin that have a lower resistance to the passage of electricity than surrounding tissue and they make up a complete network system similar to the nervous system.

Acupuncture is used to promote the body's natural healing, improve mood and energy, reduce or relieve pain and improve function of affected areas of the body. Acupuncture is a safe and effective therapy and can give relief when traditional medical therapy has failed.

Acupuncture Needles

Acupuncture needles are very fine, flexible and sharp at the tip. They are very different from a hypodermic needle (these are used for injections, etc) as they do not have a cutting edge which slices through tissue. Acupuncture needles are designed to glide through tissues and makes them unlikely to cause bleeding or damage to underlying structures.

Sarah specializes in the following:

Fort Saskatchewan, Acupuncture, fertility

Acupuncture is a very effective treatment in conjunction with fertility treatments. It can treat conditions that can interfere with getting pregnant (such as endometriosis) or increase the chances of successful assisted fertility treatments. Acupuncture can also help lower overall stress levels, which can help increase fertility hormones like progesterone. Sarah has had numerous success stories with her acupuncture treatments!
