Getting to know Dr. Sarah Woolever

Dr. Sarah Woolever of Bloomington, Minnesota earned her Bachelor of Science degree and Doctorate in Chiropractic at Northwestern Health Sciences University College of Chiropractic. She comes from a family of health care providers, and she wanted to become a chiropractor like her father from a young age. Her passion for natural health care was influenced by research and watching people frustrated with the allopathic paradigm. Dr. Sarah is married and has 3 girls, 13, 8 and 6. Her youngest girls were born at home with the help of local midwives.

Dr. Sarah specializes in keeping families happy and healthy by facilitating the body’s ability to heal itself. She enjoys working with local midwives and birth professionals for easier, more comfortable pregnancies and births. She has spent over 100 hours of additional training for treating pregnant women and children with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association of which she has been a member since she was a student. Dr. Sarah is certified in the Webster technique from the ICPA “The Webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/ SI joint dysfunction. In so doing neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is improved.” See for more information on pediatric and pregnancy care.

Dr. Sarah has been serving the Lake Elsinore community for the past 7 years. She loves the area and has enjoyed forming relationships with local people and businesses. She is an active member of Crossway Menifee and enjoys working with the children's ministry and youth.

She interned for a year at 50th and France Chiropractic in Edina, Minnesota alongside Minnesota Chiropractors of the year Dr. Carrie Clark and Dr. Christopher Jo. She had the opportunity to be a volunteer at La Clinica de la Mariposa treating underserved populations in Costa Rica as a student which motivated to share chiropractic even more. After that phenomenal experience, she did her externship with Drs. Jeremy and Nick Schembri, and she joined the West Coast Chiropractic team shortly after.

In her undergraduate years, Dr. Sarah studied abroad in both Costa Rica and Nicaragua learning about Latin American culture and increasing her knowledge of the Spanish language. She spent 3 months volunteering in Ghana, West Africa at the base of Adaklu Mountain doing capacity building for the Adaklu Mountain Ecotourism Committee. She worked on computer literacy, transparency, and goal setting with the members.

Daniel Nam AcupuncturistDaniel Nam, L.Ac., Ph.D., Dipl. O.M. (NCCAOM)


My name is Dr. Daniel Nam, a licensed acupuncturist and the founder of the Union Acupuncture Clinic in Lake Elsinore, California. I have a Ph.D. in Oriental Medicine and Acupuncture.

Acupuncture is an alternative medicine methodology that treats patients by manipulating thin, solid needles that have been inserted into acupuncture points in the skin. Stimulating these points can correct imbalances in the flow of Qi (energy) through channels known as meridians. Acupuncture can safely treat various pain problems by releasing natural endorphin in a patient.

It is beneficial for patients whose conditions do not respond well with the conventional medicine and therapies, especially for those patients with difficult neuro-muscular pain syndromes. Since the benefit of acupuncture is now recognized by insurances, patients should try acupuncture.

I practice both traditional Chinese and innovative styles. My techniques include a gentle auricular acupuncture for detox/diet and emotional well- being, Korean Four-Constitution treatments, Cupping, Acupressure, and a full line of Chinese herbs for various ailments. My specialties are spinal back problems, sports injuries, drug addiction, and emotional well-being.

Some of the other problems that can be treated by both acupuncture and Chinese herbs are: allergies, arthritis, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), colds, cough and flu, anxiety and depression, diabetes, digestion, feet pain, fibromyalgia, fatigue, headache/migraine, immune diseases/disorders, muscle aches, sprains and strains, neck and shoulder pain, sleep/insomnia, smoking, and weight loss.

Our clinic takes Workman's Comp and Auto Accidents injury cases, and we accept most HMO and PPO health insurances. We also offer an affordable cash program for those who do not have eligible acupuncture insurance. "Personalized Care" is my practice motto. Personal attention is provided for your patients' best clinical results.

Union Acupuncture Clinic is affiliated with Lake Elsinore Chiropractic, we provide all of your acupuncture, and Chinese herb needs. Please call for a free 30-minutes office consultation for all new patients today.

Thank you.
