Tune in to the Press This Point podcast and maintain your foxiness!
Sara Calabro is an acupuncturist; the founder of AcuTake, the first consumer acupuncture publication, and the host of Press This Point, a podcast about acupressure.
Sara discovered acupuncture by way of journalism. For 10 years she worked as a healthcare business journalist, covering the pharmaceutical and medical-device industries. The experience provided an up-close look at mainstream medicine’s shortcomings and inspired her to explore other perspectives on health.
Upon graduating from Tri-State College of Acupuncture in New York City, Sara practiced acupuncture privately and in community clinics throughout New York and Oregon. These clinical experiences highlighted a need for accessible resources about acupuncture. Sara created AcuTake to discuss acupuncture in a relatable way so that people can use it to improve their daily lives. Now, almost a decade after launching AcuTake, Sara is producing Press This Point in response to her patients’ and readers’ desire for acupuncture-inspired self-care tools.
In addition to her work on Press This Point and AcuTake, Sara has written about acupuncture for The Huffington Post, Acupuncture Today, GreenMedInfo, and others. She is the author of Acupuncture Matters and Heal Your Kids With Acupressure.
In each short podcast episode, Sara explores a single point — the conditions it can help with, how to find it, and instructions for performing acupressure.
She also discusses how the ancient theory behind each point can be applied to modern life. You’ll walk away from every episode with a new drug-free tool for healing your body, mind, and spirit.
