Uthrive Calgary acupuncturist TCM Dr. Sarah Martins


Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture

Dr. Sarah Martins graduated from the Alberta College of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine in December 2015. Before studying acupuncture, she worked as a Registered Massage Therapist for 6 years and specialized in Western Herbal Medicine and Yoga Therapy. As an acupuncturist, Dr. Martins specializes in Sports Medicine and Abdominal Acupuncture. 


Acupuncture Sports Medicine is used for the treatment of common injuries and pain. This technique uses electrostimulation to isolate and activate weak muscles of the shoulder and hip girdle, relieving tension in the neck, arms, lower back, and legs. This modality is also very successful in treating plantar fasciosis. 


Abdominal Acupuncture is used for the treatment of infertility, anxiety, digestive discomfort, and sleep disturbances. This technique uses the brain's connection to the stomach to harmonize hormones and balance body fluids. When used, this modality calms the nervous system and resets harmful fight-or-flight responses. 


Dr. Sarah Martins was born and raised in Calgary and competed in several marching band competitions as a youth. She enjoys working with individuals in search of better body awareness for the goal of optimal health and physical achievement.
