    Comment:  Sarah treated me throughout my pregnancy. She treated me for minor complaints, such as persistent hip and coccyx pain; she also treated me for more significant issues, such as a breech baby. Sarah helped to turn my son, and kept me calm and feeling great during pregnancy. Whenever I had a question or issue with which she was unfamiliar, Sarah would also do research and follow up with me immediately. After I gave birth, she treated me for everything from incontinence to lactation issues. Sarah is indescribably professional, attentive and intuitive. Each treatment is as relaxing as it is beneficial. I have reviewed two family members to her, both for different ailments (achilles pain & addiction issues). Both enjoyed their treatment, and saw results from their treatment. To those experienced with Acpuncture/Chinese Herbs, as well as those new to the field/practice, I highly recommend Sarah. She is a great blend of East/West academia and excellence.

    Subject:  Acupuncturist for Pregnancy
    Comment:  I used Sarah Rivkin located at 488 Carroll St (near 4th Ave) starting at 34 weeks because my baby was breech and I also had low amniotic fluid. She treated both of those conditions and even some back pain. My baby stayed breech but we learned during labor that nothing, not even moxibustion, was going to turn my baby, so I wouldn't judge her on that. I thought Sarah was very professional, thoughtful, and experienced. She specializes in women's health.(July 2011)
