PUT YOUR BODY IN GOOD HANDS
Release, Relax, Relief
Hi, my name is Dr. Claudia Sandoval, owner of The Point. Prior to beginning my quest into holistic healthcare, I spent 20 years working in the medical field assisting surgeons in the operating room. My love for medicine gave me the desire to explore a different approach to traditional healthcare practices. I received my Master’s degree in Acupuncture from AOMA in Austin, TX in 2017. I then went on to receive my Doctorate in Acupuncture and Oriental medicine in July 2019.
The Point and myself are extremely passionate and driven to address the client's needs and help them achieve optimal health. The Point does not believe in a one-size fits all approach and understands each clients' needs are different. With my extensive background in this field, I am able to quickly assess the clients' needs and find the root of their issue. Here at the Point we make sure you receive an accessible, alternative approach to your body wellness.
The Point focuses on treating chronic and acute pain, women's health, including fertility issues and cosmetic acupuncture, and neurological conditions. The Point is the only practitioner in the New Braunfels, Texas area that is certified to offer Fascia Treatment with a Subcutaneous needle.

"Today I had the pleasure of meeting Claudia and enjoying one of her treatments. Initially I went in to have cupping on the back on my legs to release fascia. Then I decided to have more cupping done on my right shoulder which continually gives me pain. Not only did she eliminate my pain/tightness, she released the knots I had in my back. She's a true class act, calm and has an inviting environment.
Thank you again Claudia and I will most certainly be back for more!"
"Claudia is truly amazing, caring and very knowledgeable. Her passion and enthusiasm shows, as she works diligently to pinpoint and address your issues. What a blessing it has been for not just myself but my family as well to have connected with Claudia and the amazing work she does. And the wide range of issues we have brought with us have each been successfully addressed through
our treatments. Claudia is really really good and you will certainly get the personalized attention you deserve. If I could I would give Claudia 10 stars!"
"What a relief I received from my back pain. Claudia Sandoval at THE POINT gets results. She is knowledgeable, flexible with treatment, and dedicated to her field. She's a continuous learner and uses a variety of strategies and skills to aid in healing. I'm so glad I went to see her."

As a Board-Certified Herbalist, Dr. Sandoval has found the benefits of herbal medicine to be invaluable. Unlike pharmaceuticals, herbs are not meant to be taken long term. As the body changes, so do herbs prescribed. Herbal treatment is meant to correct any imbalance in the system. It's important to recognize that herbs also filter through your liver and kidneys, and therefore we always use caution and take into account any current Rx you are currently taking.
