As a person who has sought out acupuncturists where ever I've moved, I had the great good fortune of discovering Megan years ago, before she spread her wings and opened Wild Sage Acupuncture in Cottonwood Heights. A more competent, thorough acupuncturist I can truthfully say, I've never met. And the fact that she is a deeply committed, caring woman who genuinely walks her talk makes the experience all the richer. If she'd allow me a megaphone, I'd stand on the corner, shouting her praises. But she is not that sort, which makes it all the better.

I felt drawn to Megan's practice when other methods of addressing my shoulder pain had not worked. I felt so at home in Wild Sage Acupuncture and after a handful of sessions found the healing my body and mind needed. This is a powerful practice and I am grateful for how much better I feel.

Megan at Wild Sage Accupuncture is truly amazing in so many ways.  She has helped transform my life for the better over the past 2 + years in the areas of physical, emotional, spiritual, and relational well-being.  I see Megan every week as part of an on-going self-care routine.  Before working with her, I suffered from several maladies.  Her skillful, extraordinarily kind, and gentle “whole person” healing approach, with treatments beyond accupuncture, have made my body and mind healthier and have enriched my life to live more holistically free from much of the pain I once suffered.  If you want to improve your life and well-being, I would highly recommend seeing Megan and Chris at Wild Sage Accupuncture.  Your well-being and life can be transformed.

Pain Management

Back Pain

The vast majority of us will experience back pain at some point in our lives. Back pain is one of the most common causes of missed work in this country. Fortunately, acupuncture is extremely effective at treating this problem. Studies have shown that acupuncture is more effective at treating back pain than conventional methods of treatment.

Neck and Shoulder Pain

Tense and tight shoulders are a prevalent issue, often causing discomfort and impacting daily activities. Many  factors increase it’s likelihood:  prolonged desk work, stress, or poor posture. Through the strategic placement of needles, acupuncture promotes increased blood circulation to the shoulder area, releasing muscle tension and restoring a sense of ease.

Joint Pain

Joint pain, including arthritis, a prevalent condition characterized by joint inflammation, is a leading cause of pain and reduced mobility for many individuals. Living with joint pain and arthritis can significantly impact one’s quality of life, making daily activities challenging. The encouraging news is that acupuncture emerges as a valuable ally in managing these painful conditions.

Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy, a condition characterized by nerve damage often leading to tingling, numbness, and pain in the extremities, poses significant challenges to those affected. Coping with the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy can impact daily life and diminish overall well-being. Fortunately, acupuncture stands out as a promising and effective approach to managing peripheral neuropathy. 

Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia, a chronic condition characterized by widespread pain, fatigue, and tender points, can significantly impact one’s quality of life. We offer a non-pharmacological solution that targets both the physical and energetic aspects of fibromyalgia, providing relief and promoting a more balanced and comfortable life.

Migraine

Migraines, characterized by intense headaches often accompanied by nausea and sensitivity to light, can be debilitating. Whether you have identified your underlying triggers or not, we can provide relief and solutions to the root cause of your migraines.

The body’s innate ability for self-healing

Acupuncture increases blood flow, reduces inflammation, and boosts the immune system. The practitioner’s duty is to assist your body by removing obstacles to the free flow of your body’s own regenerative force. Most people find it incredibly relaxing and feel rejuvenated after a session.

Yes, we can help with that

Chances are, acupuncture is a very fitting solution whether you are struggling with acute or chronic pain, hormonal imbalances, weight gain, or stress that leads to tension, anxiety and sleep problems. Allow the strengthening effects of our treatment strategies to improve your overall health.

Dry Needling

Dry needling offers notable benefits, primarily targeting muscular pain and discomfort. By inserting thin needles into trigger points or tight muscles, it helps release tension, improve blood flow, and alleviate pain. This technique is widely recognized for its effectiveness in managing conditions such as chronic pain, muscle spasms, and myofascial tension.

Comfortable, Clean, Safe

You can trust our dedicated commitment to excellence as our facility prioritizes safety and professionalism. With patient comfort at the forefront, we’ve created a soothing and inviting atmosphere for your healing, ensuring a wonderful visit each time.

Cupping is an old, traditional treatment that helps resolve chronic muscle tightness and pain faster than massage therapy alone.  Great for back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, hip pain, IT band tightness, and calf pain.
