Sarah Norvilas, LAc, is a licensed Acupuncturist and certified Chinese Herbalist. Her interest in herbal medicine began during her clinical residency, where she was able to study under some of the foremost experts in Chinese formula writing. She found that being able to design formulas tailored to each patient’s needs not only improved the rate at which they recovered, but could simultaneously protect and rebuild their bodies from the wear-and-tear of daily life, stress and aging. It has since become an integral part of her practice.
She has worked treating general medicine at UCLA’s Arthur Ashe Center, and the Simms/Mann Wellness Center, with a focus on pain management. Although she maitains a general practice, she has found great success and interest in treating orthopedic conditions, infertility and emotional imbalances. She holds a Master’s Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine and is a member of the American Association of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine.
