Acupuncture and IBS – I decided to seek help after suffering from IBS, as well as gluten intolerance, for three long years. After a stint overseas, I had developed a strong stomach sensitivity that led me to become gluten free as well as lactose free. It was at times tolerable and at other times paralyzing. I was left with little hope after going to clinical physicians who gave me no helpful advice. It was always the same story, you have an IBS and it is a chronic condition. Fortunately, after talking to a friend I decided to start investigating Eastern medicines approach to stomach woes. I found Deborah because of her many positive yelp reviews and felt that her holistic and natural approach would be beneficial.
She approached my stomach issues through two avenues, acupuncture and a special blend of herbal remedies. My stomach improved rapidly and I felt the improvement within the first six weeks. I became able to eat out (as well as try new foods as long as they were gluten free). I no longer dealt with the chronic constipation. Today I am able to eat some dairy and my stomach is completely healed of the gluten allergy!! Deborah was kind, considerate and always attentive to my stomach abnormalities. IBS is a treatable condition but not from the western give it a prescription approach. Deborah truly understands how the body functions and how things like hormones, bacteria and stress all affect the body. I would recommend her to anyone with stomach issues, anxiety or other ailments.
Deb gave me hope to keep trying – Deb treated me for about a year for infertility. Anyone who has experienced infertility knows how trying, frustrating and disappointing it is. Those were very dark days for me and I can't imagine what I would have done without Deb.
Seeing Deb on a weekly basis really helped me cope with all of these feelings. Her positive attitude and ability to really listen made me feel like I was in good hands. Making me laugh didn't hurt either! After seeing countless doctors, who made me feel pretty hopeless, it was Deb who lifted me up and made me feel like it was going to happen for me.
As I write this, I am 34 weeks pregnant and have to thank Deb's treatment for taking a big role in this. She inspired me to keep going and not to give up.
Deborah Healed My IBS – As a person who is always in control of life, I found myself utterly helpless suffering from IBS symptoms for almost 2 years. The worst of it was the panic attacks. It felt like a never ending cycle, and I longed to be normal again. Out of desperation, I tried multiple western medicines,but to no avail. I began to google acupuncture and found Sage Wellness
where I began my treatment with Deborah. I took her suggestions and instructions very seriously, I kept a color-coded food log and stayed off of certain "trigger" foods, together with weekly acupuncture sessions and
herbs she prescribed, my food log looked a lot "greener" after 2 months. I can honestly say that my life is back to normal. One of the great things
about Deborah is that she doesn't just treat your symptoms, rather, she gets to the root cause, and for me, that was stress. I highly recommend Deb, her genuineness and kindness in addition to her expertise is
definitely one of a kind!
Acupuncture For Breeched Baby – Several months ago I came in to see you with a breech baby in my belly. We got him to turn and I had a wonderful natural birth with no medical interventions needed :]

Acupuncture For Fertility – I went to Sage Wellness because my husband and I were having trouble conceiving. We tried for about a one year and went through one round of IVF which unfortunately did not work. At that point, I wanted to look at alternative routes before going through another round of IVF. That is when I contacted Deborah at Sage Wellness. I found Deborah to be extremely knowledgeable and caring. She educated me on my cycle which no other doctor had! Through acupuncture treatment and herbs, I began to see the difference in my periods and felt so much more relaxed. Four months later we got pregnant! I am thrilled beyond belief and very happy we were able to get pregnant naturally. I recommend Deborah for anyone who is looking for acupuncture and their health.
Deb Healed Me! – After suffering with Mono for 16 months I became desperate for some relief. I saw about 9 different doctors who could only prescribe rest. I felt the doctors I spoke to did not understand how debilitating this virus was and therefore did not make an effort to help me. I eventually became so ill that I was bedbound. I dropped out of school and continued to rest while my symptoms became worse. I was emotionally and physically exhausted and frustrated. Talking to my school advisor, I learned she too struggled with mono for years and did not find any relief until she tried acupuncture. I began researching holistic healing and came across Deb Valentin?s practice online. I arrived at Deb?s office barely able to walk. I was so weak that even a short walk would exude all my energy. I had body aches and migraines and a slew of respiratory problems. I had a chronic cough, shortness of breath, chest pains and congestion. I had lost my appetite and suffered from nausea resulting in a weight loss of 20 pounds.
I decided to try acupuncture as a last resort. I sat down in Deb?s office and explained all my symptoms. She looked at my tongue, took my pulse and began to explain which organs were weakened by the mono, how this was affecting my body and how to replenish my ailing body. I had been looking for these answers for nearly a year and a half and was beyond relieved to hear the problem and even better, a solution.
Within a few sessions my symptoms had improved greatly, within a few months I was completely healed. I started working again and attending school the following semester. I still see Deb nearly a year later when I feel my body becoming weak or sick again or when the stresses of life becomes overwhelming. Deb is very knowledgeable and is always giving me tips to live a healthier life. I would absolutely recommend Deb?s practice to anyone who is suffering and cannot find the relief they deserve.
Deb cleared my acne! – I had suffered from adult acne for several years. My acne was related to stress/hormone fluctuation, but I wanted to stay away from pills and a chemical approach. I had never tried acupuncture before and feel so grateful that Deb's treatment was recommended to me. I had tried everything from topical products to laser facials and was frustrated and disappointed with their inefficacy.
Deb's approach is holistic and thorough. She addressed every aspect of my symptoms, including dietary modifications, environmental changes, topical products, herbal supplements and, of course, the acupuncture itself. She is extremely competent and generous with her talents and knowledge. She was always flexible with my scheduling, our meetings were never rushed and her focus and concern made our sessions feel thorough, thoughtful and effective. The herbal treatment and acupuncture, in particular, were modified depending on my symptoms and progress from week to week.
I've seen more improvement with my skin than I'd have every imagined, and my family and friends have noticed as well. I feel more aware, confident and centered- and my skin reflects that. I'm so happy I worked with Deb and would highly recommend her to anyone interested in a more holistic approach to medicine.
Best Acupuncturist In NYC – Deb is one of the most gifted listeners I've ever met and truly cares about the well-being of her patients. Since my first treatment at Sage Wellness about a year ago, I have found no need for any other means of medicinal assistance. Deb is a wellness expert, a trusted teacher, a skilled practitioner and a caring friend. I would highly recommend Sage Wellness to anyone interested in
achieving and maintaining optimal health.
Great Listener and Very Skilled Practitioner – I first came to Deb seeking relief for a few problems, the worst of which was some stress-related acid reflux. I was taking an array of over-the-counter medications without relief. Additionally, my medical doctor put me on an expensive OTC medication, and I was also seeing a psychologist for my anxiety. Still, something seemed amiss, unbalanced, and being a medical practitioner myself, I knew it wasn?t being properly addressed by Western medicine alone. So, I decided to try Chinese medicine. Between my treatments with Deb and the herbal regimen, my symptoms began to resolve in a few weeks. I don?t use any of the other medications anymore! Deb, in addition to being a skillful practitioner, is also a great listener and always very supportive and attentive to my needs. She makes me feel so comfortable and I always look forward to my appointments with Deb. They?re the most relaxing part of my day! I?ve already recommended Deb to my family members and would recommend her to anyone else looking for some relief!
Deb's Demeanor Is Sensitive, Supportive and Very Comforting – I sought treatment as I was 38 weeks pregnant and had been suffering from severe lower back pain for over two weeks. The condition had been so debilitating that I had to finish work earlier than planned and I was mostly homebound. Not only was I in significant pain, but also I still had things to do in preparation for the baby being born!
I spoke to Deb on the phone and her confidence in her ability to help me was comforting right away. As a practitioner, Deb?s demeanor is sensitive, supportive, and very comforting. The pain started to subside a day after my first treatment and after 3 treatments, I am not in any pain and I am much more mobile! I have never received acupuncture treatment before and now I am a total believer! If I ever have any other physical issues, I won?t hesitate to go to Deb for her help and healing!
