Founder and acupuncturist

Deb Valentin, M.S., L.Ac

Deb Valentin is the founder of Sage Wellness. With over 17 years in clinical practice, she is dedicated, intuitive, and compassionate in helping others in their quest for health. Deb brings an extensive knowledge and skill set in multiple modalities to provide whole body healthcare rooted in Eastern medicine, while working side by side with Western doctors and practices. She is a licensed acupuncturist with a Masters in Health Science and Traditional Chinese Medicine, as well as a Chinese Herbalist who tailors treatment to target immediate goals, while listening and fully understanding symptoms — when and why they show up — that nourish the whole body.

Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Nutrition, and Lifestyle Support help rebalance the body, supporting the natural healing effect to take place. After starting the first wellness curriculum for an international school in Dubai, Deb decided to bring her global experience to New York City where she is highly respected as a leading integrative healthcare expert on family planning, enhancing fertility, and women’s wellness.

She has been a frequent speaker in Washington D.C., New York, and Dubai, as well as a contributor for Rave Sq. magazine and Dannon Facebook. She also served on the Board of Resolve, a non-profit organization that supports the advocacy of infertility. Deb is also highly sought after for, not only, utilizing both Eastern and Western medicines to empower her patients, but for her incredible commitment and intuition as a trusted partner, guide, and constant support for her patient’s optimal and lasting health journey.
