Dr Sally Uebergang - Who is she?
I am confident and accomplished in what I do as a Dr of Chinese medicine and I am committed to meeting your health needs. In all modesty, if you don't walk out feeling better than when you walked in YOU WON'T BE CHARGED FOR YOUR INITIAL CONSULT!!!
I offer safe, effective treatment that works for you and can treat most conditions. I love what I do and I feel inspired every day to help my patients achieve their health goals - whether this be for pain, digestion, pregnancy, sporting injuries or stress. I commit to working with you to achieve maximal results with a treatment plan tailored specifically for your needs. I also want to educate you on your condition and arm you with some things you can do at home to enhance your treatment effect. This can be very helpful when you are between visits.
I offer a unique and fantastic service and that is why my main business growth is through word of mouth. People are so happy with the results we achieve together that they tell their family and friends. I have also treated numerous celebrities. I have added much value to peoples lives by getting them back to a normal, healthy steady state of mind and body. I am determined to do this for all the patients that I see. I believe that being good at what you do is great, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't always be continuing your education. I update my knowledge constantly by going to medical seminars and conferences. I also read the latest literature in my field on a regular basis.
I am a motivated clinician and focus very much on what you can gain from a treatment. I aim to relieve you of your complaint and will strive to achieve a better outcome for your health in the future. I am also comfortable treating multiple complaints at once. Again, I work on a solution based model that aims to achieve a better outcome for your health. I can also write sickness certificates for patients that need time off work due to their condition.
I would also like to note that I am very happy to talk to you on the phone to answer any of your queries (be sure to look at my list of Frequently Asked Questions). I want to overcome some of the frustrations you may have had seeing other practitioners. Feel free to call me on my mobile and I will endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible if I'm busy with patients. Please also note that only disposable, single use high grade acupuncture needles are used at my clinic. If you have a needle phobia we can use laser acupuncture. See - there is always a solution!
My passion for acupuncture & TCM was ignited due to constant headaches and migraines when I was young.
After minimal progress with Western medicine my neurologist suggested acupuncture would be a very helpful tool. I got a treatment result after just one session and ended up having a 12 wk course. I was so happy with the results that I enrolled at RMIT and spent 11 yrs studying and also completed a medical internship in Nanjing, China.

Experience and acupuncture in practice
I have been practicing for 12 years and have a special interest in sporting injuries, lower back pain, headaches, stress and fertility. Most conditions can be treated with Chinese Medicine which is what makes it such a unique type of treatment.
I also prescribe herbal medicine. Lots of conditions cannot be treated by acupuncture alone and herbal formulas will be prescribed. Some things you may encounter throughout a treatment are acupuncture, laser acupuncture, heat lamp therapy, cupping and elecro-acupuncture. It's not nearly as scary as it sounds!
Acupuncture is very effective in treating all types of pain and is wonderful for sporting injuries.
- Acupuncture increases muscle flexibility, strength and mobility by reducing abnormal muscle tightness
- Improves the healing time of an injured muscle by increasing the blood flow and improving soft tissue alignment
- Reduces the strain, discomfort and stiffness sometimes associated with physical exercise
- Helps to reduce recurrent or chronic pain
When treating your muscular pain, tightness and restriction of movement you will have the experience, professionalism and excellence in Traditional Chinese Medicine treatment. One of the great and really interesting side benefits of acupuncture is its natural performance-enhancing ability. Acupuncture's potential is enormous and its role in the sporting arena is being tapped by countless athletes and sports people anxious to get on with the activity or game. A drug free alternative to pain you have been experiencing. Yet it's so simple, and so effective!
That is why I see so many patients for injuries, back pain, headaches, stress and fertility.
