Acupuncture is the insertion of hair-thin needles at specific points on the body to help regulate the nervous system and restore balance to the organ system-- helping your body heal itself from many issues including acute and chronic pain, anxiety, infertility, insomnia, headaches and more. 

Chinese Herbs Stamford


Chinese herbal formulas are a safe and effective complement to acupuncture treatments. Unlike pharmaceuticals, Chinese herb formulas work to address the underlying cause of disease, not just to alleviate symptoms. We use only the highest quality herbs available, and our herbal prescriptions are customized to your specific needs.

Just one of many adjunct therapies used in Chinese Medicine, cupping is the use of glass or plastic globes, applied to the skin with suction to stimulate healing. It is effective in treating a range of concerns, from common cold to pain, muscle soreness and more. 


"Sarah is A GEM. She has the ability to calm me down but also make me laugh, explain Chinese medicine in a way that makes sense to someone with no knowledge, and makes me feel like she genuinely cares about my health. I look forward to every session!" -BH

"Sarah is incredibly knowledgeable and intuitive as an acupuncturist.  As someone who suffers from anxiety and back pain, acupuncture has helped tremendously and Sarah provides wonderful treatment and care.  Acupuncture provides relief in many areas and Sarah clearly knows how the human body works and how Chinese medicine correlates to our emotional well being.  She is highly recommended!!" -LB

“Sarah is an incredibly kind, compassionate and knowledgeable practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine. I am always impressed with her tendency to go above and beyond, following up after our treatments and offering advice and support. I highly recommend her to anyone who is in search of a solution for whatever ails them.”- JR

“Can't say enough about how wonderful Sarah is. I've been struggling with a host of issues that I didn't realize may be interconnected. Sarah took a thorough intake and helped me understand the process. I walked out of my first treatment floating, feeling better than I had in weeks. If you're considering acupuncture for the first time, or looking for a wonderfully smart, caring provider, go see Sarah @ FFA!!” -KB

“Sarah has taught me so much about the great benefits of acupuncture! It really gets to the source of the problem. She is amazing! Highly recommend!”- KM

Sarah has changed my whole life with acupuncture and cupping treatments!  From physical pain to emotional stress and PMS to having a head cold, Sarah has helped me in so many areas of life. She is professional and explains the how's and why's to an acupuncture newbie and can make even the most needle-phobic love and crave treatments. Couldn't recommend Sarah more to adults AND kids too!

"Sarah! I am pain free and slept for 7 hours last night! It's been years since I've felt this good! Is this magic?! I don't care what it is, I feel great. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! I can't wait till my next appointment."-CJ

"I  cannot recommend sarah highly enough. I have seen her for a wide variety of issues and she always finds a way to see the big picture and to go above and beyond to help me. Her intake consultation is so thorough and comprehensive and she follows up with the same attention to detail and personal connection. She is kind and caring and extremely knowledgeable and professional. I just started took my newborn daughter to sarah for chronic congestion and I saw an immediate change in my baby. Sarah was so gentle with her and really explained her process and why certain things help. My 4 year old watched our session and now she wants to come back for acupuncture! Go visit Sarah at FFA, you will not be disappointed!" SW

"I worked with Sarah to help combat my son's chronic congestion. Sarah has such a gentle and calming nature that she immediately put my 14 month old at ease. She listened patiently as I described my concerns about my toddler's health and worked with me to help relieve him from his symptoms. I highly recommend Fairfield Family Acupuncture!" AJ
