Sadie Minkoff L.Ac., FABORM
Sadie is the clinical director of the largest reproductive acupuncture practice in central Texas, a pioneer in the field, she is known for her intuitive and compassionate care. For nearly twenty years she has worked with her partner Mich Schreiber L.Ac. Together they opened Sage Acupuncture, Austin’s premier holistic fertility clinic. Later they founded The Cancer Wellness Center for patients, survivors, and their caregivers. Sadie and Mich dedicated their life’s work to fertility and oncology because their family has been personally touched by both. It is their mission to support others faced with these challenges by providing exceptional care in a healing environment.
Sadie has seen first hand the great benefit that an interdisciplinary approach to healing can bring. In addition to her private practice, she has worked in various clinical settings including The Texas Fertility Center, Austin Surgical Hospital, Central Family Practice, The Genetics & IVF Institute of Virginia, Tulsi Holistic Living, and the Carl Vogel Center of Washington, DC.
She is an inaugural Fellow of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM), which certifies a select group through a comprehensive board examination and ongoing continuing education in both modern and traditional medicine. She has served as the ABORM Vice President and is currently on the board of directors. She is a certified Obstetrical Acupuncture Association senior member, is licensed by the Texas State Board of Medical Examiners, nationally certified by the NCCAOM, and holds a four year Masters of Science degree from AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine. In 2019 she was highlighted as one of AOMA’s most successful alumni.
Sadie has been a guest lecturer at AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine and The Texas College of Traditional Chinese Medicine. In 2006 Sadie contributed to a peer review of “Chinese Medical Herbology and Pharmacology,” by the Art of Medicine Press, widely considered the foremost medical text on this subject.
One of the most rewarding aspects of Sadie’s work is educating patients, other acupuncturists, and healthcare professionals about integrative reproductive medicine. In 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019 Sage was honored to receive the Austin Birth Award for Best Acupuncture Clinic and Best Herbalist.

Sadie continues to be the best at what she does. I am so grateful to her and for her. -Anne B.
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.
