Awareness. Balance. Vitality. Joy.

About Us

Awareness. Balance. Vitality. Joy. At Sagelight Integrative Wellness Center, we embrace these words, and have woven their meaning into the spirit of our center. There is a reason why these four words are in this order. Awareness leads to balance, balance leads to vitality, vitality leads to joy. Joy can be experienced in every moment… in your kids’ sleepy faces, in the movement of the leaves in the wind, in enjoying your beautiful, amazing and healthy body. Joy in being your full potential, 100% authentic you.

When we decided to open an integrative wellness center, our intention was to create a beautiful space surrounded by nature. A place where one could walk in and begin the journey back to their deepest, authentic and vibrant self. Through many different modalities in an integrated setting, we envisioned a deeply healing space where our clients’ bodies are healed and their spirits soar. A space where miracles can happen. A space where you come back to your deepest joy.

Sagelight is an integrative wellness center where all of our practitioners meet regularly to discuss our clients, cross-pollinate and learn from each other. We have created a healing community, centered around bringing each of our clients to their greatest, most balanced and healthy potential. Located in Columbia, MD our services include acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, naturopathic medicine, nutrition counseling, reiki, massage therapy and yoga.

We all want to make the world a better place. Our wish is for all to experience a joyful, bright, wise and serene existence. At Sagelight, we have laid a foundation to this path through our services. Our goal is to guide the wisdom of the body to come into balance in order to live full of vitality with a serene mind and a soaring spirit. Our desire is for our clients’ to know the full joy in being alive. When we can reach our fullest potential, the world is a better place.

We fully invite you to enter the doors of Sagelight and begin your journey back your deepest, most joyful self.
