Meet Our New Acupuncturist!



Sarah Hart is a Diplomate of Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM), a California-licensed acupuncturist, and Vice President of CSOMA, a professional organization in California. Sarah comes to Dragon Rising from an integrative medical team in Oakland, CA. As part of the Functional Restoration Program, she provided Chinese medicine to help patients manage chronic pain and meet their treatment goals to improve their quality of life. 

She is currently earning a Doctorate of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine at Five Branches University with focuses in psychology, trauma, and Classical Chinese Medicine. She received her Master’s Degree from Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine College in Berkeley, CA where she also worked in the herbal medicine pharmacy. She had the honor to provide acupuncture to  MD’s, RN’s and staff at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital. Sarah also had the privilege of studying Medical QiGong with Suzannah Stason in the lineage of Suzanne Friedman. 

Sarah received her undergraduate degree in biology: ecology and pre-med from Colby College in Maine. She worked as cartographer for an agricultural land trust. She knew she wanted to be an acupuncturist when she learned that Chinese medicine looks at the body like an ecological system and combines the art of science with the spirit of healing. 

Sarah’s treatments support patients’ ability to restore balance in their life. She is very excited to join the Dragon Rising team and is looking forward to meeting you!

Welcome to Dragon Rising Chinese Medicine!

My teacher taught me that the patient will present in the clinic with a symptom that is like the tip of the tree branch.  A good physician will follow the branch to the trunk and down to the root, and thus treat the underlying cause (root), as well as the manifesting symptom (branch), thereby manifesting true health and balance for the patient.  Chinese Medicine for thousands of years has proven to be a safe, effective alternative to health and healing.

I invite you to experience the compassionate wisdom of oriental medicine.
