She has been practicing in the holistic health care field since 1997, including eighteen years in Austin.

Currently, Michelle is working toward her PhD in Classical Chinese Medicine at the American University of Complementary Medicine.
A passion for food and nutrition, rooted in a lifetime of study, led Michelle to complete training in “Food as Medicine” through the Center for Mind Body Medicine and Georgetown University Medical School. She is also certified by the American Association of Nutritional Consultants.
Michelle is a graduate of The Shiatsu Institute and Therapy Center in San Francisco, The Lauterstein-Conway School of Massage in Austin, and the Asian bodywork program at the Academy of Oriental Medicine at Austin, where she went on to assist in the Tuina department.

I was recommended to Sage Acupuncture by my team at Texas Fertility Center... they not only helped increase my fertility, but worked on other related issues like my digestion and anxiety as well as periodic headaches and allergy symptoms. - Meg H.
Sage Acupuncture is simply wonderful! I've been a client for over two years, before, during and after pregnancy. - Shannon H.
These ladies are great-- very knowledgeable, kind and gentle. I started a year ago to help with fertility, my progesterone was extremely low. Within a few months it was within normal range and I was pregnant. I then continued all throughout my pregnancy for maintenance and comfort.

Sage provided the ultimate support I needed in my fertility journey. I couldn't have asked for a better team and now my daughter just turned 1! I first came to Sage filled with pessimism, frustration, sadness, anger and ultimately because of their support felt hopeful again, empowered, healthier and happier. Other than the actual baby... working with you ladies was the best part of my fertility journey! - Anne M.
