Despite what you may read from fails who talk about "pure" DPS classes as opposed to hybrids, you cannot effectively heal in any DPS spec. Whether you go TK or Balance, you only get two heals as a Sage. Both are casted, and both will drain your force so fast that you will be completely ineffective as either a healer or a DPS while using them.

You can heal an over-geared HM flashpoint group or the Heroic dailies on Ilum and Belsavis and the Black Hole, but you are never going to heal a raid or HM Lost Island as a DPS Sage.

TK Sage is great for leveling but is not nearly as popular for endgame as Balance. Balance is more mobile, and it's much easier to get the rotation down. Too much standing and casting with TK, which doesn't work that great in most of the tougher ops. Either is perfectly viable for DPS but neither will allow you to heal in the endgame. If you want to heal, spec heals. If you spec DPS, you will be a terrible healer.
