Meet the practitioner
Sachi Shirota, L.Ac.
Owner, Acupuncturist, Herbalist
Sachi is a National and California State Board Licensed Acupuncturist. She is a focused, compassionate and professional practitioner who takes patients’ trust very seriously. She employs every modality available to provide the optimal treatment for each patient. She believes in looking at people as a whole, not just a combination of symptoms that are presented at the moment.
Having been in a fast-paced and demanding corporate world for over a decade, she has experienced stress first-hand. She knows what it can do to your physical and mental health and what it takes to juggle work-family-life balance, especially when the children require a lot of time and attention. She has been there and she has done that.
Sachi decided to become a Chinese Medicine practitioner after having an awe-inspiring experience with her own body when she received an acupuncture treatment for the first time. She also has first-hand experience in overcoming fertility challenges with acupuncture and herbal medicine. She has always wanted to share her experiences with other women struggling with infertility.
She is a marathon runner and experienced yoga practitioner, who also enjoys mountain biking, climbing and hiking. She has a strong belief in nourishing the mind and body with the right nutrition and maintaining an healthy and active lifestyle and meditation.
