Each acupuncturist at White Pine is licensed through the state of North Carolina and is nationally certified as a Diplomate of Oriental Medicine through the National Certification Commission of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM.) Sally graduated from Five Branches, a traditional Chinese medicine school in Santa Cruz, California. She also loves the Japanese acupuncture tradition and has studied with Miki Shima. Heather graduated from Daoist Traditions, a classical Chinese medicine school in Asheville, NC.

Though we  have different backgrounds and professional interests, each White Pine acupuncturist practices classical Chinese medicine as taught by Jeffrey Yuen, a leader in the dissemination of classical studies in Oriental medicine. Master Yuen’s vast knowledge combined with his inspiring spirit serve as a touchstone for us in our lives, practices, and continuing studies.

Having practiced acupuncture and herbal medicine for over ten years now, I am so happy to convey that I absolutely love what I do.  I am continually inspired by the simultaneously delicate and powerful essence of acupuncture and all it entails.  It is with great honor that I meet people in the sacred space of a treatment.  As a dedication to the ultimate effectiveness of the medicine, I cultivate my own inner peace, clarity, and ability to love so that I may provide a warm, stable, and strong environment in which people can do their own transformational work.

Practicing acupuncture is what I do; it is who I am.  I love being an orchestrator in the treatment room, where I consciously activate people’s acupoints so that they do their healing work themselves. I empower people to engage with their own energy.  With patients, my position is one of loving support, encouraging people to thrive at their optimal potential.

I have been practicing massage and bodywork since 2005.  I believe that one can achieve optimal health and well-being by maintaining the health of the body and mind equally.  My background includes extensive training and studies in Eastern philosophies, shiatsu, massage, and bodywork.  The sessions I provide incorporate a blend of therapeutic, deep tissue, lomi lomi, shiatsu, and myofascial techniques.  I also incorporate essential oils and hot stones as desired.

My work is fulfilling to me as I truly love facilitating and witnessing my clients move through their healing journeys.
