Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western Herbalism

The acupuncture and herbal medicine practice of Sage Staggs, L.Ac.


Are you seeking a more balanced life? Would you like more ease and vitality?
I offer a calm sanctuary; a space to pause, rest and heal from the stress of everyday life.

About me

I harmonize my knowledge of traditional Chinese medicine with wisdom from my studies in western herbal medicine, massage therapy, nutrition, yoga, qigong, and mindfulness practices.  My treatment style is calm and gentle, yet focused and effective.  I offer pain-free acupuncture and trauma-informed care.

Practice focus

Like all acupuncturists, I treat pain of all types.  My specialty is in women's health, fertility, pregnancy, postpartum, menstrual health, PMS, and menopause.  I have expertise in supporting LGBTQI wellness, specifically for queer and trans families and individuals who are trying to conceive via insemination, IVF, IUI, and other assisted reproductive therapy. I also treat insomnia, allergies, IBS, stress, muscle tension, neck pain, low back pain, sciatica, headaches, anxiety, depression, emotional issues, and mental health.

Communities served

I am proud to support the health of the LGBTQI community and have a passion for providing care to those who have experienced trauma or marginalization.  I am honored to provide care with cultural humility to queer and trans folks as well as other populations that are underserved by conventional medicine.

Techniques employed

I treat a variety of conditions utilizing TCM and integrative holistic medicine: acupuncture, Chinese herbs, western herbs, nutritional counseling, supplements, health coaching, cupping therapy, and moxibustion.  In addition to hands on techniques, I counsel all of my patients in dietary and lifestyle modifications, and prescribe supportive herbal formulas and supplements.
I devise a personalized care plan for each patient that supports the individual’s goals for wellness, with specific recommendations  and resources that will help to implement the changes.
