Stephanie MacKay, DOM, AP
My passion is empowering women to feel their healthiest and happiest!
My specialty is helping women with regulating their cycles; this could be fertility issues, endometriosis, PCOS, PMS, menopause, fatigue, insomnia or anxiety. Women are special because they need focus on addressing the different hormones that are constantly fluctuating.
Located conveniently in downtown Sarasota, Dr. Stephanie MacKay, has been implementing Traditional Chinese Medicine for the health and well being of the entire family for over 15 years. She received her Masters from Atlantic Institute of Oriental Medicine, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and studied Nutrition at the University of Florida. She is also certified by the Florida Board of Medicine, NCCAOM Certified.
Dr. MacKay’s main focus is treating Women’s Health and Fertility. Helping a woman to be able to carry a baby to term is so rewarding. If the condition is endometriosis, ovulations issues, elevated FSH levels, egg quality or Male Fertility issues Chinese Medicine can help. She also, is able to help menopausal women to transition more easily; whether with weight gain, hot flashes/night sweats, or insomnia. Chinese Medicine also helps with PCOS, irregular and/or painful periods, and PMS.
Each patient is an individual and that is how you are treated. Together we come up with a plan that works for you focused on diet, lifestyle, stress levels and much more. We can also do testing of hormones and blood work to check for deficiencies.
Always keeping YOU the center of the treatment.
Although, women’s reproductive health is her focus, Dr. MacKay treats many other ailments and illnesses from allergies to tennis elbow. Just as Chinese Medicine is holistic so is her practice. Be sure to consider acupuncture, cupping or herbs the next time you or a family member has a physical or health issue. Many times Western medicine may provide a band-aid but Chinese medicine may provide a cure.
Patients coming in for treatment of a specific ailment very often comment that other issues, pains or health problems were also alleviated. Improved sleep, relaxation and clarity are frequent side effects of acupuncture. Dr. MacKay works to bring the whole body into balance allowing it to function at its optimum to promote healing, balance and holistic well-being. From infants to the aged, everyone can benefit from the care and treatment found at Sarasota Family Acupuncture and the healing touch of Dr. Stephanie MacKay.
