“You Did An Awesome job, Back Feels MUCH Better Today.
THANK YOU!”  Jim S.
“I have had tendonitis in my elbow for years off and on. I would place the elbow brace on which gave some relief.
After researching  acupuncture and the  various personnel who perform this type of  treatment I found that you seem to be the most educated and professional who continues the study and procedures for acupuncture.
I have to say that after just after four treatments my elbow is relieved of pain and I am able to utilize my elbow with normal activities and have never felt better so quickly.
You also relieved pain in my knee which has not returned. There is not any doubt that when I have any pain again I will be returning for your treatments.
I must say I was skeptical about acupuncture at first but I am a  believer now without having to take oral medication and was relieved of pain  with natural procedures.
I also appreciate the education you informed me of with healthy  habits in daily nutrition.
I would highly recommend you to anyone for treatments of pain relief.  Thank you so much for your help and treatment, I will be a repeat patient.”  Terry M.

“When I first met Sara I was feeling very vulnerable.  I had gone through breast cancer surgery a year earlier and had been taking prescribed estrogen blocking drugs.  I had had bad reactions to those medications: extreme hot flashes, achy joints, sore muscles and depression.

The nurse oncologist who’d been working with me wanted me to try another drug and said I shouldn’t have those reactions to this new medication.  She neglected to mention that this drug can increase the risk of uterine cancer.  I didn’t want to take this medication and was looking for alternative medical treatments when I met Sara at Root to Branch Acupuncture.

I was still experiencing a great deal of pain in my left arm from the lumpectomy and the removal of a lymph node.  I couldn’t raise my arm without shooting pain.  I was also experiencing a problem with my right thumb and wrist diagnosed as tenosynovitis.  In addition I had developed pain in my tailbone.

I’ve undergone six sessions of acupuncture with Sara.  I think she’s knowledgeable, and she’s been very encouraging.  She gave me helpful suggestions regarding diet and supplements.  She also supported my following a program by Dr. Christine Horner to fight against and prevent breast cancer.

As a result of acupuncture, I can now raise my left hand with no pain.  My right thumb and wrist are better, and my tailbone has improved.  Since starting the acupuncture with Sara, I feel much more in control of my health and the decisions I’ve made to protect against breast cancer without toxic drugs. Instead of feeling vulnerable, I feel stronger.  I definitively recommend Sara’s acupuncture practice, Root to Branch Acupuncture.”  Pat

I have suffered from chronic migraines and other pain, general malaise and exhaustion, taking medications including a central nervous system blocker and (yikes!) Botox injections every 3 months. After just over two months of acupuncture and T.C.M with Sara of Root to Branch Acupuncture, I am off of the meds and functioning better than I have in a very long time. Thank you, Sara, for helping me to get my life back! Gretch

“Sara, I wanted to say thanks for yesterday, I don’t know what you did but I feel awesome today! Thanks again.” Janet

“My son woke up very sick. He was throwing up and had severe diarrhea. I called Sara at Root to Branch Acupuncture and she recommended that I start him on a specific Chinese Herbal formula. She told me what dosage to give him and how many times to administer it throughout the day. I gave him his first dose and within 20 minutes he had stopped throwing up and within an hour he had no more diarrhea. I continued to give him the Chinese Herbal formula for the rest of the day along with his brother and sister who incidentally never did get sick. Thank you Sara for your excellent herbs and advice.”  Hally

When you hear about something that is “different from western standards” especially medicine well, do I have a person for you to hear this from.  Sara Kowalik is exceptionally concerned for her clients and gives you as much time as needed to find out what you need.  There was no high pressure to work on anything you don’t want to.  After the interview, I had my first acupunture session.  I did not know what to expect but, afterwards the sense of calm really surprised me.  An amazing feeling on many levels. The calm I felt spilled over into the time I fix dinner, a time I usually “eat” my way through making dinner and then eat dinner!  I experienced something so calming I just want to have that again!  Sara is amazing, patient, caring, and she knows her way around a Chinese medicine textbook.  I would recommend Sara 100%.”  Laura

“Sara is the complete package.  Her training and technical skills are without question. She is an attentive listener and pays meticulous attention to detail.  After 2 – 3 sessions I began to notice an improvement in my health.  Once Chinese herbs were added to my treatment plan, even more improvement. In the span of 2 months, my life has been transformed.  I look forward to monthly sessions with Sara to maintain my health and well being.” Brenda
