“Dr. Sally has played a key part in the maintenance of my health and vitality for at least fifteen years.  What do I love about working with Sally? Where do I start? She is not only vastly knowledgeable in the healing arts, but intuitive and wise. Sally holds safe space and meets me where I’m at. Her strategies towards my health are made with me and address my body and being as a whole. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve come to her with a set of symptoms, a diagnosis or even a chronic issue and had them resolved——  sometimes in just a session or two.  

I especially recommend Dr. Sally if you are new to acupuncture treatments. For years, I had a deep fear of needles, but Sally put me at ease and I began to enjoy deep relaxation as a bonus to the sessions I received. If your body seems to react to certain foods or other elements, Her NAET sessions are incredibly effective at honing in on the culprits and eliminating allergies and sensitivities. And her long distance Qi Gong sessions have cleared my spirit and rid my body of symptoms I’ve lived with for years. 

If you are looking for resolution to dis-ease and desire balance and flow in your body, connect with Dr. Sally!”

“When I came to Dr. Sally I was in extreme condition and nothing else had helped.  She took me quickly and saw that immediate help was needed. She has what I call comprehensive compassion, which is rare, because it means understanding the depth and complexity of the health issue (crisis in my case) and trusting her creative intuition to improvise if necessary.  Average doctors are often formulaic and inflexible, but extraordinary doctors never are, and this is true regardless of which medical approach is used. When doctors transcend their education they become healers.  Dr. Sally is a healer working from heart and without ego.  She saved my life. Santa Cruz is lucky to have her and my only regret is that I didn’t find her sooner.”

“Sally Sherriff is a master in the healing arts! She has helped support and strengthen my health in so many ways over the last 2 years. I began seeing her to help with digestive problems that have been eluding western medicine for years. Seeing her weekly and sometimes twice a week for the last several months has greatly alleviated my symptoms! I highly recommend Sally as an acupuncturist and especially for anyone struggling with allergies or food sensitivities. She has extensive training in traditional Japanese and Chinese Medicine and honors each persons unique needs. Her compassionate touch and loving energy always leaves me feeling nurtured and nourished.”


“I brought my daughter in for an unexplained rash when she was 3. Dr. Sally was wonderful at putting her at ease—my daughter really enjoyed her treatment and her rash completely went away after just a couple of sessions.”


“Dr Sally is the best! I originally came to see Sally for my 2 year old son’s asthma. Western medicine, Albuterol and Pulmicort, were making him irritable, gave him stomach aches and dark circles under him eyes. I was witnessing his health deteriorate. She was able to treat him and help us manage his asthma. We completely stopped using Pulmicort and only occasionally used Albuterol when absolutely necessary. Years later I came to her for side pain which I believe was from a cyst that was discovered on an ultra sound. She treated me with acupuncture and herbs and the cyst resolved. I was amazed when I had a follow up ultra sound and was told the cyst was gone! She has also helped with back pain and mood enhancement. She is kind, caring and extremely knowledgeable.”


“I’m not sure on all the names of the treatments I have received. But I believe I have received NAET, moxa, ear beads, magnets, cupping, herbs, supplements and vitamins and acupuncture. I recently hit the 100 treatments mark, and I can’t say enough about how much her treatments have helped me. I have had them immediately following surgeries and for my health challenges, as I strive to be well with the intention of having longevity and vitality. It’s an investment in myself, and the best thing I’ve done for myself health-wise. I have recommended her to friends and family. She has been instrumental in my healing journey, and has helped me to learn how to take better care of myself. I sought her out years ago when I learned about her journey to her Healthy Dragon practice, training in various countries and modalities, with mentor healers. It was clear then that this work was a calling for her and it’s clear this is so every time I have a treatment.”


“My daughter loves her sessions with Dr. Sally! She takes time to connect and makes her treatments fun. My daughter has had treatment for an egg sensitivity and Dr. Sally used “kitty whiskers” which help with sleep issues she has from time to time. Her treatments and herbs have been very effective. Dr. Sally is great with kids.”


“I love Dr Sally! She always makes me feel like I’m the most important person in the world. I receive the best care , ALWAYS!!!”
