About Us

Caring For Your Health

We understand that you are not living your best life possible unless your mind and body are completely healthy. That's why we take a holistic approach to preventing and reversing disease. 

Natural Healing

Our goal is to provide care that will reverse and prevent disease using the fundamental healing principles of mind-body harmony. Chinese medicine is an ancient art that has served humankind for more than two thousand years.

Our Promise to You

Sara Pamela Star, L.Ac. cares about your well being and will provide you with guidance, knowledge, and tools so you can achieve optimal wellness. 

Our Services

Women's Health

Acupuncture helps women live balanced and empowered lives.  At Star Acupuncture Clinic, we specialize in the treatment of menstrual symptoms, infertility, pregnancy and postpartum support, and menopause.  


Natural Pain Relief

We specialize in healing pain such as headaches, chronic pain, joint pain, and back pain. We use an array of methods ranging from acupuncture, acupressure, essential oils, and herbal medicinals. Our goal is to treat root cause rather than temporary relief of your symptoms.


Herbal Remedies & Aromatherapy

Chinese herbal formulas and individual herbs have been used in traditional Eastern practices for thousands of years. Available in many forms, herbal remedies are often found as dried herbs, tinctures, and essential oils. Treating and preventing your conditions with herbs is naturally safe.
