My name is Sara and I have a Master’s of Science in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, and a board-certified Diplomate of Oriental Medicine by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM. I have been practicing as a Licensed Acupuncturist in Nebraska since 2013.

My motivation for becoming an Acupuncturist and more recently an AIP Coach stems from my own battle with autoimmune disease. I have been on the Autoimmune Protocol and am grateful for the changes it has made in my health. I understand the struggles that come with an autoimmune diagnosis and how AIP can be a game changer! Having personally benefited from both Acupuncture and the Autoimmune Protocol, I am excited to combine the knowledge and skills to assist others to unblock their roadblocks to health and well-being.

With that, I want you to understand that there is hope to change your story. There is absolutely no reason for anyone to live with whatever pain or condition they are facing. Acupuncture is a body-mind-spirit medicine that treats the whole person. I will work with you as a whole person, not as a disease. I want to hear your story to find out what your specific issues are that are keeping you from flourishing. I will help you by making nutrition and lifestyle changes and suggestions while also utilizing acupuncture to help maximize your healing potential and to reduce pain and stress, giving you back the quality of life you deserve.

I am an accredited Journey Practitioner and an AIP Coach from Sydney, Australia. My passion, to improve one’s health holistically, began in my 30’s.

I was in a stressful corporate role, working long hours, sleep deprived, eating mostly fast foods and partying a lot as young professionals do. I thought I was living my best life…until my health began deteriorating and brain fog and anxiety started affecting my performance and confidence. My body was crying for help! I was diagnosed with several autoimmune diseases that affected my joints, digestive system(Coeliac Disease), skin(Lichen Planus) and hair(Alopecia Areata). This was a wake-up call! I could either take immune suppressing drugs OR empower myself and make positive changes to improve my health. My gut feeling was to honour myself and listen to my body.

My quest led me to understand that the health of our cells (the building blocks of our bodies) is affected by our emotional and mental wellbeing; nutrition; lifestyle and the environment. The philosophy of cellular healing was introduced to me by Brandon Bays (www.thejourney.com) who pioneered “The Journey Method” – a profound, introspective, guided meditation, that taps into the body’s innate wisdom, and addresses the emotional distresses of life’s challenges that could be compromising our health.

As a corporate professional I was ambitious and in control of my outcomes. I was hard on myself and my own worst critic. Failure and mistakes were unacceptable. Having the autoimmune diagnosis made me feel like I had no control. The Journey meditations enabled me to address my fears, anxieties, stresses and frustrations. By tapping into my inner resources of strength, love, compassion, self-acceptance and forgiveness for myself and others, I was able to change my perspectives and priorities in life and support my body to recover.

My journey of recovery inspired me to help others who are dealing with autoimmune challenges. With empathy, emotional support, compassion and self-honouring, it is possible to regain one’s health and vitality.

Hi, I’m Chrissy. I was diagnosed with my first autoimmune condition in 2016. A friend introduced me to the AIP diet and I was excited to try it. As I shared this with my doctor, he said, “what you eat doesn’t matter.” And that moment sparked the interest to learn about nutrition and how it impacts our health. In working with clients, I meet you where you are. I want to help you make changes that are long lasting. I look forward to being a part of your healing team. Along with my nutrition. training, I am also a certified yoga teacher. Healthy living is truly holistic; diet is important, but so is a balanced life. I will work with you on stress, sleep and relaxation along with nutrition.
