Sarah Chase Natan (founder of the Brooklyn Acupuncture Project) has been working side-by-side with Lev since 2014 in their unique Acupuncture Sound Bath events for health and wellbeing. We are excited to offer this combination in the workplace, for personalized attention. Acupuncture has been shown to shift the nervous system into a "rest and recover" state. From here a range of imbalances can be righted: muscle pain, digestive difficulty, insomnia, mental and emotional stress, fatigue and more. We look forward to bringing acupuncture to your team in an easy and accessible way.
Sarah began her exploration of Chinese Medicine at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in 2002 and graduated with a masters degree in 2006 after spending over one year living and studying in southern China. She is a nationally certified herbalist and shiatsu practitioner as well as NY state licensed acupuncturist. She has been fortunate to learn medicine traditions with Heiner Freuhoff, Lonny Jarret, Thea Elijah, Hua Ching Ni, the Wu Sheng’an family in Xi’an, and the good elders of the Secoya community Northeastern Ecuador. A thorough pulse diagnosis guides her acupuncture, body work, and herbal treatments as Serra hopes to encourage the highest expression of health and wellbeing in all the people she works with. Serving through community acupuncture in Brooklyn for over seven years and treating in South and Central America for the past four years, Serra has assisted thousands of people with many different needs and confidently treats everything from body pain to babesiosis to broken heart, wholeheartedly and without hesitation. She started the Brooklyn Acupuncture Project in 2007 and is grateful to the community for making it the amazing place it is! She will be beginning a new private practice in Stockbridge, MA in August of 2017.

"It was as if, by focusing on the long term legacy, I was actually free, to tend to the activities that seemed small on the surface, but that actually were part of a network...by focusing on the legacy, you'll be creating a future memory that's fun, purposeful and challenging."
Dean Adams, Documentary Film Journalist
"The space that Lev created with his presence, intuition, and flexible responsiveness allowed me to turn my attention inward and carve out a larger, freer space to navigate...I recommend Lev to anyone who is available to change, and ready to inhabit presence more fully."

“You integrate earth and nature based wisdom with very practical real-world skills. I needed the spirituality to support the practical work so that it didn’t feel boring or like homework. It deeply resonated with me. I couldn’t have taken a “business” course otherwise. It would never have occurred to me”
