Sage Acupuncture was created in 2003 by Sadie Minkoff, L.Ac., and Mich Schreiber, L.Ac in Austin, Texas, to provide support for people in search of overall health and integrative care, especially regarding fertility, pregnancy, and childbirth.
Naturally compassionate and warm people, Sadie and Mich were drawn to this profession because of the holistic healing they’re able to provide. As Sadie says, “We provide integration between Eastern and Western medicines. This allows us to work with our patients and their doctors to put together a total care plan – one based on holism, not reductionism.” Sage is focused on finding the root cause of problems such as unexplained infertility, poor ovarian reserve, and menopause – and then providing ways to correct the disharmony and move towards health and wellness.
Whether you’re looking for help with fertility or general wellness, Sadie and Mich have walked your path and understand what you’re going through. Trying to conceive at an advanced age, they experienced many of the same struggles as their patients. Through acupuncture and holistic health, they were able to conceive, carry to term and stay centered and balanced through labor and delivery.
Sadie and Mich have also experienced the heartbreak of family loss due to cancer and wanting to create a holistic environment focused on managing treatments and side effects associated with this disease and , in 2016 opened Sage’s sister clinic, the Cancer Wellness Center. Mich watched their father battle four cancers over 10 years and was moved to help people navigate the overwhelm that comes with trying to keep up with the treatments, diet, exercise, and nutrition recommendations. The wonderful staff at The Cancer Wellness Center help patients listen to and heal their bodies. They provide overall support for the immune system while tackling the many side effects of medication, including nausea, lymphedema, low blood counts, fatigue, neuropathy, stress, anxiety, and depression.
One of the most rewarding aspects of their work is educating patients, acupuncture students, and healthcare professionals about holistic reproductive medicine. For many years, Sage has been honored to receive the Austin Birth Award for Best Acupuncture Clinic.
Today, Sadie, Mich and the team at Sage Acupuncture are committed to being at your side through your entire journey. Whether your path is to wellness or to parenthood, Sage is devoted to supporting your emotional and physical health.
