Women's Health Program at Sage

At Sage, our Women's Health program provides holistic, specialized support for all women, wherever they're at in their journey. The program is 3 months long and tailored to each individual, providing support for hormonal imbalances, fertility, pregnancy, postpartum concerns, menopause, and everything in between.

The program is designed for women and those across the gender spectrum who feel like they would benefit from the program, including nonbinary, gender fluid, and trans people.

What can I expect from the Women's Health Program at Sage?
The Sage Women's Health Program takes a tailored, integrative approach to health and wellness. It is designed as a structured 3 month program where you'll meet with multiple Sage providers to support and address your individual needs and concerns.

The first step is the intake process. You will start by completing an assessment in which we will collect information about your concerns, medical history, nutrition and lifestyle habits. You will then meet with our naturopathic doctor who will review this information, and take time with you to better understand the full story. She will determine whether lab testing is needed to fill out the picture, and conduct a nutrition assessment to get a sense of whether any aspect of your eating patterns may be impacting your health. We find that nutrition is a key part of overall health, and sometimes small changes can have a big impact on your sense of wellbeing.

You'll then meet with our doctor of acupuncture, who will review the information collected thus far and investigate further from a Chinese Medicine perspective. You'll have your first acupuncture treatment as part of this initial meeting.

Our team will work together to put together an individualized treatment plan that incorporates acupuncture, herbal medicine, supplements, nutrition, and lifestyle recommendations as appropriate to your unique situation and treatment goals.

Once the intake process is complete, you'll meet with our team on a weekly rotating basis to address your concerns and make progress towards your goals. Sessions will include a monthly check in with our naturopathic doctor, bi-weekly sessions with our doctor of acupuncture and bi-weekly nutrition sessions. Most of the appointments will happen in person at our center in Berkeley, CA, but virtual visits will be available for components of the program as well.

Designed by women, for women
The Women's Health program at Sage was born out of a desire to support the unique, mysterious, and sometimes complex needs of the female reproductive system. Not only is Sage owned by women, but the Women's Health Program was designed by women on our team who are deeply passionate about providing support to other women. Our women's health providers have extensive training in addressing women's health concerns through the lenses of the modalities they practice.
Who should consider Women's Health at Sage?
Our Women's Health Program is designed for all women at any stage of life.

We find that there are certain concerns and needs that many women encounter at some point along their journey. These include:

Hormonal imbalances: Transitioning off hormonal or other forms of birth control, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), cyclical depression or anxiety, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), acne, insomnia, digestive disturbances. Symptoms might include irregular periods, heavy or light bleeding.

Fertility and pre-pregnancy: Preparing the body & psyche for pregnancy, difficulty getting pregnant, recurrent miscarriage, irregular cycles, lack of a period (amenorrhea), lack of ovulation.

Pregnancy support: Symptom management (heartburn, muscle cramping, hot flashes, insomnia, mood shifts, headaches), mental emotional support for the transition into motherhood, nutritional counseling and supplement management.

Postpartum support: In other cultures the postpartum period is considered the "Fourth Trimester". This is a vital time for women to recover from the intensive process of creating, carrying, and birthing a new life. Nourishment protocols, support with bonding with the infant, and supporting any issues like postpartum depression and adjustment to the new lifestyle as a mother.

Menopause support: Support with symptoms such as overheating, night sweats, vaginal dryness & atrophy, depression or anxiety related to this transition.

Support with a range of additional gynecological diagnoses, including: Endometriosis, PCOS, PMS, fibroids, interstitial cystitis, chronic unrinary tract infections (UTI's), chronic yeast infections, yin deficiency, and human papillomavirus (HPV).

General womb health

We welcome people across the gender spectrum who feel like they would benefit from the program including gender fluid, non-binary and trans people as well. While we do not specialize in trans health or hormone replacement therapy, we welcome trans people and are also happy to provide more appropriate referrals.
How much does the Women's Health Program cost?
Our Women's Health Program is $525 a month over the three month program duration. Should your provider recommend it, there's a one time optional Dutch Test add on for $320. Over the duration of the program, this is a savings of over $250 if services were booked separately.
