Curious, pragmatic and caring, Andrea is a Board certified acupuncturist with a Doctorate of Acupuncture from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. She is a native of New York State with a degree from SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry, and spent the earlier part of her career as a natural resource planner in the Pacific Northwest.
Andrea has a long-standing interest in wellness and integrated medicine, particularly as it relates to supporting constitutional balance and resiliency. She is certified in facial rejuvenation acupuncture and enjoys helping women look and feel their best, from the inside-out. Her experience in acupuncture is varied, including clinical work in the Labor & Delivery Department at NYU Lutheran, at Columbia University Health Medical Services, mentoring with specialists in female health, and observation of Chinese Medicine physicians at China Medical University teaching hospital in Taiwan.

Caring, intuitive, and supportive, Sarah is a board certified acupuncturist with a Doctorate from Pacific College of Health and Science, and has been a Licensed Massage Therapist for over 12 years, after graduating from Bryn Mawr College with a degree in Photography. Since receiving her degrees, she has studied with leaders in the field including Jeffrey Yuen, and Henry McCann, and received advanced certifications in Ortho-Bionomy and other manual modalities.
Sarah has long been interested in sports medicine and pain management, but after years of specializing in the treatment of female athletes, became fascinated with all aspects of women’s health. Today’s culture has taught us to look at our bodies as machines that, when defective, are taken to the doctor to be fixed. Sarah has since been engulfed in fertility and IVF acupuncture, assisting women and couples conceive healthy pregnancies. When not with patients, Sarah acts as a Teaching Assistant at Pacific College in bioscience and clinical research classes, races bikes, and competes in triathlons on the national level.
