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!

Launceston acupuncture clinic now open!

My Launceston acupuncture clinic

Big news! My new, beautiful Launceston acupuncture clinic is officially open.

It’s been a little while in the making (I’ve been writing a subject on Chinese Medicine dietary therapy for an acupuncture degree program) but the clinic is now ready for patients!

This is primarily a women’s health practice in line with my professional experience and further education. I enjoy supporting women with a range of menstrual issues (including period pain), couples through preconception care, natural fertility cycles and IVF/ART, as well as assisting women throughout their pregnancies and towards birth. Additionally, research and my clinical experience indicates that acupuncture is also effective for a range of common pain conditions including osteoarthritis of the knee, chronic lower back pain, headaches and migraines (prophylaxis).

Launceston clinic bookshelf

I bring to each consultation a blend of skills and knowledge from my clinical experience and academic pursuits (formerly, Senior Lecturer of Chinese Medicine at Endeavour College of Natural Health, Gold Coast). My qualifications include a Master of Health Science (Traditional Chinese Medicine) with distinction and a Bachelor of Health Science (Acupuncture); I’m regularly staying up to date with training – so you’re in good hands. You can read my bio here.

I’m pretty excited to be bringing my compassionate style of Chinese Medicine to you with a range of  treatment techniques including acupuncture (including electro-acupuncture and laser acupuncture as required), tuina (Chinese massage), cupping, Chinese dietetics and lifestyle advice adapted to assist you as an individual with reaching your health goals.

Goodbye to the Gold Coast but what is next?

So there are big changes here at Sarah George Acupuncture & Natural Health. The clinic is moving… quite a long way away… to Launceston, Tasmania.

The reason for this is that I am taking a step away from permanent academic life to focus more on providing one on one care to my patients combined with running a few courses, doing a little teaching and writing more about Chinese Medicine for good health in a clean, green environment close to beautiful fresh produce and herb farms including Bridestowe Lavender Estate and 41º South Ginseng Farm.

To my patients, I wanted to thank you for choosing Sarah George Acupuncture Natural Health (in Brisbane, West End and Broadbeach) for your health care over the past few years. It has been an honour to be your acupuncturist in this time and I am grateful for you in trusting me to help you towards reaching your health goals.

Stay tuned… I will be setting up as an acupuncturist in Launceston, Tasmania… feel free to share this news with anyone you know living in Launie who might be looking for an acupuncturist.

My new clinic

peony red webAs you will have seen in my last post I have been offered and have decided to accept a permanent Chinese Medicine lecturing position at the Endeavour College of Natural Health. I’m excited about embracing this new challenge but as a result I will be moving on from a position I have very much enjoyed at the HealthWise Clinic.

My last day at HealthWise Clinic will be Wednesday 6th November 2013. Call (07) 3839 1077 to make an appointment.

But I’m not giving up clinical practice altogether. I can’t. I love what I do too much.

Your future health care

As a Chinese Medicine Board Registered Acupuncturist, it is important to me that you are well looked after for your health care needs and I will do my best to make sure they are met for your individual situation.

For those of you who have been seeing me at the HealthWise Clinic over the last (almost) six years I’d like to recommend the acupuncture services of my HealthWise colleagues, David McLeod and Zam Martin.

If you are a massage patient please contact me and I can refer you to a massage therapist who is convenient to you.

Or if you prefer…

New clinic contact details

Although my appointment times will be limited due to accepting a permanent lecturing position, I will continue to practice acupuncture and massage from this clinic:

Acupuncture & Natural Therapies Centre
26 Thomas Street
West End  QLD  4101
Ph: (07) 3844 2217

My first day at this clinic will be Thursday 7th November 2013.

If you wish to contact me

Please feel free to contact me to discuss your future health care options. And please know that you are always welcome to stay in touch. You can:

  • ‘like’ my facebook page
  • ‘follow’ me on twitter
  • ‘follow’ this blog by email (link close to the top of the right hand column)

Changes at the clinic

For five years and about eight months I have happily turned up to the HealthWise Clinic most days of the working week to treat my wonderful patients. This has been an absolute delight.

But change is inevitable. Many of you know that I also lecture in acupuncture at the Endeavour College of Natural Health. Well, I’ve been offered a permanent lecturing position at the college and have decided to embrace the challenge. I’ve really enjoyed my lecturing time and it keeps my acupuncture skills ‘sharp’. This in turn benefits you, my patients. I also love inspiring new acupuncture students in the medicine that I see helping my patients so well in the clinic.

So, the news is that in order to start my new permanent lecturing role I will be leaving Healthwise Clinic. This was a hard decision to make. My last day at the clinic is Wednesday 6th November. And I’ll be available on my usual days (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) until then. Call HealthWise  on 07 3839 1077 to book an appointment or to discuss your future care.

And for those who are wondering, I won’t be giving up clinical practice altogether. I will have availability for some acupuncture and massage patients at a new clinic. More on that next week so stay tuned.

I’m incredibly grateful to David, Zam and our wonderful HealthWise team over the years (Jenny, Carmen, Kathleen, Jenine, Judy, Jodie and Julia) for their kindness and support. David and Zam will still be available to provide acupuncture at HealthWise Clinic.

I am honoured to those of you who have chosen me to provide your healthcare. I’ve enjoyed helping you on your journey. You are always welcome to contact me.

Thank you.

Sarah is a practitioner of acupuncture (CMRB registered), massage therapy and natural medicine. She lectures at the Endeavour College of Natural Health.
