Deborah Valentin, M.S., L.AC.
Board Certified Acupuncturist & Herbalist
Deborah is founder of Sage Wellness, a holistic health center based in Traditional Chinese Medicine in New York City. She believes in helping her patients resolve their health issues as well as educating them on how to prevent their health issues from recurring. As the daughter of a doctor, Deborah was always interested in the healing effects of the body. After suffering from a severe back injury 15 years ago, she began her search into "alternatives" to surgery, which was the only solution to her back pain that she had been offered. This is where she discovered the amazing effects of acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine. Being a patient and experiencing how Chinese Medicine dramatically helped heal her own back injury led her to a career in the field. She left her career as a staffing manager at a Fortune 500 company to pursue a Masters in Science and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Deborah is a licensed acupuncturist as well as board certified in Chinese Herbal Medicine. She has both clinical and hospital training in acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine.
Deborah has been active in the community in sharing her knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine on a variety of health topics. She served on the board of Resolve, a non-profit organization that promotes advocacy in infertility, and has done speaking events on the Treatment of Infertility with Chinese Medicine. She has done speaking events both nationally and internationally in New York, Washington D.C. and Dubai in holistic health topics. Deborah has published articles in RaveSQ Magazine and Living in the Gulf on holistic health topics. As a believer in healthy habits starting in childhood, she started the first wellness curriculum in the UAE at Scholars International Academy. She has been interviewed in Gulf News and has been a guest on holistic health topics on radio shows. She was asked to serve as a contributing editor on wellness tips to Dannon's Fit and Light Facebook Page. She maintains a private practice in New York City where she is devoted to helping others with their health, and believes in continuous learning and rigor in order to serve her patients in the highest way possible.
"I am very grateful to be in a position to serve others in helping them with their health issues, building a partnership with my patients and giving them good care is what I strive for everyday."
