    David Haynes
    Acupuncturist & Manager

    Passion, healing and individual care. These are the fundamentals to David’s work as a Registered Acupuncturist. Throughout his time in the industry, David has worked with countless patients to improve their quality of life. With a particular focus on fertility, pain and stress.  David’s clinic, Coastal Natural Therapies and Haynes Acupuncture, proudly holds the standard as a leader in the field, with patients travelling both near and far to be treated by David and his team.

    First assisting, then practicing since 2008, David made a commitment to continued education early on. He believes that to pave the way as a leader in the field, learning new techniques, expanding your skills, and researching new ways of achieving outstanding results, is essential. This means regularly travelling to conventions, exhibitions, and workshops with international leaders in Chinese Medicine. Including a three-month internship at a Chinese Hospital in 2009, where he gained certification in Advanced Practice (Guangxi Traditional Chinese Medical University, Nanning, China).

    David’s commitment to continued education results in comprehensive acupuncture treatments, that can be tailored 100% to the individual’s needs.

    David’s passion for acupuncture and holistic living is unwavering, which is obvious to his patients at each and every treatment.

    Rather than resting on the usual diagnosis, David comprehensively treats his patients every time, to ensure that nothing is ever missed. This attention to detail, and commitment to his clients, is what sets David apart from the rest.

    Ségolène Prats
    Acupuncturist

    My passion for this medicine began years ago when I was suffering from chronic pain for a very long time. After experiencing acupuncture my sleepless nights transformed into peaceful rest.
    Being a Mum of three, I understand how difficult and sometimes complicated looking after your own health can be and I am dedicated to help others to find energy and balance to a busy life. What Eastern Medicine offers is a philosophy that empowers us, it teaches us to listen to emotions, to pay attention to the changes in our body and cultivates our mind.
    The body has this amazing ability to heal, always seeking for the perfect balance; acupuncture acts as a guide to help bring the body back to homeostasis. I am passionate about assisting others find the keys to unlock their fullest potential through reconnection with their body and mind.

    Qualifications;

    Mark Sargeant
    Acupuncturist

    Mark moved to Australia from England in 2012, and in 2013 began his formal training in Chinese Medicine at Endeavour College of Natural Health. Mark achieved a Bachelor in Health Sciences (BHSc) with distinction. During the course of his degree, Mark learnt from a variety of teachers and has spent time in different acupuncture clinics to further advance his understanding of Chinese Medicine. Mark has been assisting David at Coastal Natural Therapies since 2016, further developing his skills and knowledge.

    Mark first became interested in acupuncture 25 years ago, after successfully being treated by an English acupuncturist. He subsequently developed a deep passion for Chinese Medicine, reading widely on the subject and having regular treatment with the intention to eventually train to be acupuncturist. Mark has always held a desire to help people and worked first as a disability support worker, then as a social worker for many years.

    Mark has a deep commitment to helping patients reach and maintain wellness with a gentle and empathic approach. Mark has a particular interest in treating chronic disease, autoimmune disorders, mental and emotional health, digestive issues and fertility.


    Raisa Yap
    Acupuncturist

    Raisa first encountered East Asian Medicine while pursuing a Bachelor of Physical Therapy in Spain. This interest led her to earn a diploma in Shiatsu and Oriental Therapies (Japanese Remedial Massage) and to further her education with a Bachelor of Health Science in Acupuncture.

    Starting a family while living far from her home country was a challenging period in her life. During her fertility journey, she noticed the overwhelming focus on the egg and the disproportionate emphasis on women’s roles in conception difficulties. This experience sparked her special interest in understanding, educating, and treating Male Reproductive Health. Additionally, she is passionate about supporting families and individuals dealing with “Expat Grief.”

    Now a mother of two, Raisa enjoys assisting women through all stages of pregnancy, labor preparation, and postpartum.

    She is also a foodie and often shares recipes and talks about her favourite dishes during a session.
