She is also certified in Constitutional Facial Acupuncture Rejuvenation.

Sandy loves to integrate the science, art, and joy of acupuncture into her practice. She has a strong intuitive and energetic sense where blockages and/or deficiencies are in each individual's body. Sandy helps each patient feel at ease, so those new to acupuncture and those with any needle fears can rest assured that they are in a safe space. As acupuncture is supposed to be painless, Sandy can explain what she is doing throughout the process to ensure the utmost relaxation. With her personal study of spiritual & consciousness practices, Sandy has the ability to facilitate and create a space where her patients are driven to empower themselves through the medicine. In the life-long learning this medicine allows, Sandy is excited to continually integrate new ideas into her practice, and generate a community where her patients can continue their path to self-awareness.
Constitutional Facial Acupuncture is a safe, painless and effective treatment for rejuvenating the face as well as the whole body. Acupuncture that focuses on the face is not separate from that which addresses the well-being of the body. If one examines meridian flow, it can be observed that "all Yang channels pass through the head, and that the 365 connecting vessels all rise to the head". It therefore makes sense that constitutional facial acupuncture does benefit the entire system.

Benefits include, but are not limited to:
improving acne, helping gyn & menopausal issues, helping headaches, edema, puffiness, toothache, benefitting eyes, ear, brain, helping insomnia, depression, self-esteem, tightening pores, brightening eyes, eliminating fine lines and diminishing larger wrinkles, reducing double chin and drooping eyelids, improving muscle tone, reducing stress, and promoting total health and well-being.
