Dr Sarah Hennessey (TCM) BA.HSc., MAcOM
Sarah is a doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and an AHPRA registered acupuncturist and herbalist. She has an academic background in modern Western biomedicine, traditional East Asian medicine, psychology, and endocrinology.
Her clinic, South East Natural Health, began calling Summer Healing Yoga its home in August, 2019.
While her experience is broad, she has special interests in:
- Women’s health
- Postnatal recovery
- Pain management
Her treatments go well beyond acupuncture and herbal medicine, to include:
- Cupping therapy
- Gua sha, including facial gua sha
- Tui Na massage
- Other bodywork therapies
- Stress relief techniques
- Clinical supplementation
Her acupuncture style ranges from traditional, to distal, to esoteric, to targeted muscle release (sometimes called dry needling) therapy.
This means that her treatments are completely flexible and customizable, to give you EXACTLY what you need on the day.
Start off with a FREE 20-minute consult (online consults offered) to get an idea of what you need and map out a treatment plan. This is also a great time to get your questions answered.
At your first treatment session, you will have a more in-depth consult to get a clear, holistic picture of your physical and emotional health, and to assess what you need on the day.
You will then enjoy your relaxing, relieving, and nourishing treatment which could incorporate any of the above modalities, as appropriate.
Sarah strives to always create a safe and inviting healing space, free from judgment.
Sarah also runs the Total Alignment Meditation & Pins sessions at Summer Healing Yoga Studio (Carnegie) on Mondays, from 12:30pm - 1:30pm.
Total Alignment is a perfect blend of Qi cultivating techniques, esoteric acupuncture, and guided meditation.
These sessions will take you on a journey to meet with your inner self and to take steps towards processing and resolving stuck emotions. This is done in a way that is gentle, nurturing, and with your experience at the heart of it.
Acupuncture is always optional.
