You may have also enjoyed a cup of Chinese tea at the new In-Balance allied health hub (on my first week there) to celebrate World Acupuncture Day.

Or joined me for the Yin Yang Balance Workshop at House of Prana that weekend.

Or even come and said hi at Woolmer’s Rose Festival or heard me on stage.

It was a big, exciting week of acupuncture related events. More exciting events are coming for next year so stay tuned!

Acupuncture comes to In-Balance on Tuesdays and Thursdays!

Wow! What a big month it has been! Sarah George Acupuncture & Natural Health is now up and running at House of Prana (on George St at the Old Roman Baths). It’s been wonderful to practice from this lovely space amongst the yoga classes, Liquid Zen float centre and the rest of the practitioner team. One of the many great things about this move is that the herbal dispensary is up and running, with new additions to be coming in all the time.

Watch this quick video of the way in to House of Prana, past the Liquid Zen float rooms to the chilled out waiting area for a cuppa while you wait for your acupuncture appointment…

The next big news is that on Tuesday I move into Launceston’s brand new allied health hub, In-Balance. You may already know In-Balance as a compassionate, innovative and above-and-beyond team of physiotherapists, exercise physiologists and pilates instructors – in fact so many of you were seeing them already at their old Patterson St address and gave me glowing reports of your treatment there. I had a sneak peek of the newly renovated, heritage-listed building last Friday and can tell you that it is a beautiful, warm space with lots of natural light and beautiful high ceilings. I’ll be joining their existing team with a few other new allied health practitioners too. Check them out as they’re doing great things here!

Acupuncture in Launceston: 2 new clinics and more appointments available

Hello!

It’s been a busy few months here at Sarah George Acupuncture & Natural Health. In August we had the buzz of the Cook Healthy Japanese Food workshop that I presented with the wonderful Sam Seghers from Mindful Menus. There are more seminars in the pipeline so stay tuned.

And this month the big news is my clinic is leaving its humble location to make its new home in not one but two great central Launceston locationseffective 1st October!

  • In Balance* The In Balance Physio & Pilates team are creating a fantastic, new allied health hub at their beautiful new location of 1st Floor, 233B Charles Street, Launceston

*As the exact opening date of the new In Balance clinic is still not definite, I’ll be operating only from House of Prana until I can work from both clinics. I’ll keep you updated.

There are some great benefits to moving to these new locations, including:

  • HICAPS for onsite private health fund claims
  • New herbal dispensary (better access to herbs and no more ordering from the mainland)
  • Greater availability of appointments – 4 days!
  • Easy walk from town
  • Benefit of other practitioner services and team approach where you require it – eg. pilates, yoga, floatation rooms, physio, hypnotherapy, art therapy and remedial massage.

As always my treatments remain holistic and individualised to you, including additional therapies as required such as cupping, gua sha (scraping), moxa, acupressure, tuina (Chinese Medicine massage), herbal medicine, Chinese Medicine dietary advice and lifestyle modifications. And you’ll be benefiting from the knowledge and skills I’ve gained in over 10 years’ clinical experience, several years’ of lecturing and supervising acupuncture students and qualifications at bachelor and masters degree levels in acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

To keep up to date with the new clinic developments and news you can follow me on Facebook and Instagram too.
