Welcome to Kurrajong Natural Medicine Centre

At Kurrajong Natural Medicine Centre, our senior practitioners cover all of the listed services. Danny Siegenthaler is a doctor of traditional Chinese medicine, while Susan O’Neill-Siegenthaler is a traditional naturopath and medical herbalist, she is also a medical aromatherapist, remedial massage therapist and much more.

Here’s a little insight into the services we offer:

  1. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM): TCM is an ancient medical system. It is deeply rooted in Chinese philosophy, and it’s more than 2,500 years old. In our practice, Danny uses various methods, including acupuncture, herbal medicine, and dietary therapy, to balance your body’s energy, or Qi. It’s great for treating a wide range of conditions, from chronic pain to digestive issues.

  2. Traditional Acupuncture: This is a core part of TCM. It utilises single use, fine stainless steel needles at specific points on your body to help balance your energy flow. It’s really effective for pain relief and can also help with stress, anxiety, migraines, insomnia and many, many other health issues.

  3. Chinese Herbal Medicine: In our clinic, we use patent herbal formulas to address your unique health needs. These herbal formulae help restore balance and boost your body’s natural healing abilities. They come in various forms, like teas, pills, capsules, and powders.

  4. Moxibustion: Is often used in combination with Acupuncture. It involves burning a dried herb called mugwort, which is a small, spongy herb, to facilitate healing. The heat stimulates your Qi flow and blood circulation, helping with conditions like arthritis and gynaecological disorders.

  5. Western Herbal Medicine: Similar to Chinese Herbal Medicine, but based on Western traditions. Susan uses herbs from around the world to prevent and treat health issues, creating treatments tailored just for you.

  6. Body Re-alignment Therapy, Exercise Therapy & Remedial Massage Therapy: This is about correcting your postural imbalances and improving your physical function. Susan combines massage, stretches, and exercises to improve your alignment, relieve pain, and enhance your mobility.

  7. Aromatherapy & Medical Aromatherapy: Uses essential oils from plants to promote your health and well-being. Essential oils can be applied through massage, inhalation, or baths. In medical aromatherapy, Susan uses these oils more clinically to address specific health issues.

  8. Bach Flower Therapy: Developed in the 1930s, this therapy uses plant and flower-based remedies to manage your emotional states, which are crucial for your physical health. I select remedies based on your emotional needs and personality traits.

  9. Natural, Herbal Skincare Range: We also offer our own range of 100% natural skincare products, which was created by Susan back in the 70’s. Our products are made from 100% natural, plant-based ingredients. These are designed to nourish and rejuvenate your skin, addressing specific concerns like ageing, acne, or sensitivity, without harsh chemicals.

Our approach is all about treating you as a whole person, not just your symptoms. We’re here to help you find natural, integrative solutions for your health and well-being. Let’s work together to find the best path to your optimal health.”

What We Do At Kurrajong Natural Medicine Centre

Our practitioners, Danny and Susan, understand that every patient has their own unique health concerns and needs, and we are committed to providing personalised care to address those specific requirements.

Our primary objective is to assist you in achieving and maintaining your optimal level of good health and overall well-being. We are committed to providing comprehensive and personalised care to address your specific health needs. We achieve this by offering:

    • Comprehensive Health Assessments: We conduct thorough assessments to gain a comprehensive understanding of your current health status. This includes reviewing your medical history, discussing your symptoms, and exploring potential underlying factors that may be contributing to your health issues. By taking this holistic approach, we can develop a personalised treatment plan tailored to your unique needs.
    • Holistic Treatment Plans: Based on the information gathered during the assessment, we design holistic treatment plans that consider all aspects of your well-being. These plans may incorporate a combination of natural therapies, lifestyle modifications, dietary recommendations and stress management techniques. Our goal is to address the root causes of your health concerns, rather than simply managing symptoms.
    • Education and Empowerment: We believe that education plays a vital role in your journey towards optimal health. We take the time to educate you about your health condition, the underlying factors contributing to it and the treatment options available. By empowering you with knowledge and understanding, we enable you to make informed decisions and actively participate in your own healing process.
    • Supportive and Collaborative Environment: We strive to create a warm, supportive, and collaborative environment where you feel comfortable discussing your health concerns openly. Our practitioners are compassionate listeners who value your input and actively involve you in the decision-making process.

What to Expect During a Consultation?

At Kurrajong Natural Medicine Centre, the emphasis is placed on offering a diverse range of treatments to address a variety of health conditions. When patients consult with either Danny or Susan, they can expect a thorough examination of their current health issue. This examination includes asking questions that may initially seem unrelated or unexpected. However, these questions serve a crucial purpose: to view the body as a holistic and integrated system.

The aim of the questions during the consultation is to identify the root cause of your health concern and to establish a treatment protocol. Once this has been achieved, depending on the type of treatment you’re having with either Danny or Susan, you will usually receive your first treatment at your initial consultation. Irrespective of whether this is acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, Western herbal medicine or Remedial massage.

The duration of your initial consultation is usually about 1 hour, however, this can vary depending on the type and complexity of your condition and the type of treatment you are having.

At the end of your initial consultation and treatment Danny or Susan will create a treatment plan together with you that aims, over time, to re-establish your optimal level of health and wellbeing. This plan will outline milestones that help in gaging the progress and helps to identify any areas that may need additional focus or emphasis.

Danny and Susan understand that the human body is a complex network of interconnected systems, and they recognise that one health issue can have multiple effects on the body as a whole. By asking questions which are seemingly “out of left field”, they aim to uncover potential underlying factors or connections that might contribute to their patient’s condition.

By gathering comprehensive information, Danny and Susan can identify potential root causes or triggers that may have a cascading effect on their patient’s overall health. This holistic approach enables them to develop a treatment plan that not only alleviates the immediate symptoms, but also addresses the underlying imbalances or dysfunctions contributing to the issue.

The “body as a whole” perspective acknowledges that various systems within the body are interconnected and influence each other. For instance, digestive health can impact immune function, hormonal balance can affect mood and energy levels, and emotional well-being can manifest as physical symptoms. By considering the interplay between these different aspects, Danny and Susan can offer a more comprehensive and effective treatment approach.

This holistic perspective aligns with the principles of natural medicine, which emphasise the body’s inherent ability to heal itself when provided with the right support and conditions. By considering the body as an integrated system, Danny and Susan strive to support the body’s innate healing mechanisms and promote overall well-being.
