Licensed Acupuncturist (L.Ac.)
Sarah Dufresne brings her affinity for introspection, attunement and empowerment to her work with patients, focusing on women’s health, anxiety & depression, chronic, and acute conditions for both young and wise. She invites her patients into conversation and advocacy for their own health.
Sarah completed her Masters in Acupuncture from Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences University. Before this, she studied Dietetics at the University of Connecticut and was involved in community nutrition programs, working with all age populations.
To continue her love of connecting with people and helping them find balance in health, Sarah attended an intensive Kripalu Yoga Teacher Training in 2012 as well as an Ayurvedic Foundations Training in 2014.
Sarah enjoys helping her patients put the pieces together to better understand their health and find balance with Traditional Chinese Medicine, Nutrition, Yoga, Meditation, Ayurvedic Medicine, and Energy Medicine.
In addition to being an acupuncturist, Sarah is a writer. She writes on the great days and the tough ones. She writes as a means to unravel an expression of joy and wisdom that is eager for the page. Sarah says, “If I stay really still, I can catch the words as they move through me. I try to write down what exists in the ethers around me. To capture a moment, a feeling, a pulse with words, feels like an honor and a gift.”
