Meet our practitioners


Sar Friedman

Principal Therapist & Director


We learn through story and live as story until our story lives through us as service to others.

Initiated through her musical and creative quests, Sar spent 8 years of her early adulthood based in London, walking to the beat of her own drum and fulfilling her dreams of touring the world in a Rock & Roll band.

In 2010 at the age of 28, Sar, always the seeker, followed her hearts calling to return home to Sydney to begin a deeper journey of self discovery.

Sar's voice became a medicine that guided her path toward a greater and more fulfilling purpose – sharing the healing power of massage, yoga, creativity and embodied feminine wisdom.

Sar has spent the past decade developing and deepening her skills by learning from the world’s best in the ways of bodywork and healing the wild feminine.

She has completed extensive work and training with her teacher and mentor Jane Hardwicke Collings, is a graduate of and apprentice with The School of Shamanic Womancraft and is also the first Australian Yoga Teacher to be certified and trained by Uma Dinsmore-Tuli – to guide women in the practices of Womb Yoga and Well Woman Yoga Therapy.

Sar has completed Levels 1 and 2 of Holistic Pelvic Care with Tami Kent and Fertility Massage Therapy with Clare Spink.

She has also released her solo album as Medicine Voice, to much critical acclaim. Singing and voice work is an essential part of Sar’s life and she continues to evolve this creative practice into her repertoire of healing offerings.

An advocate of women’s wellness, Sar presents and performs at festivals, workshops and conferences. She is an innovator with a special interest in teaching consent principles and body autonomy.

Over time Sar has cultivated a deep literacy and knowledge in the ways of her own body. Operating from this place of self-wisdom, she shares a fierce and gentle healing tonic of presence and safety; of being seen, heard, known, nurtured and welcomed home.


*Sar is available Monday-Thursdays weekly and the first Sunday of every month

We call the Divine Feminine
The inner knowing within each of us
Feminine wisdom, courage, strength.
We call the women who have gone before us, mothers, midwives, wise women be with us.  Remind us to trust our bodies. Remind us to trust the process and to surrender our fears and worries. Remind us to be with what is, our awesome selves. Powerful, creative, yielding and wielding.

– Jane Hardwicke Collings


I welcome all who identify as women into this space. This includes non-binary and gender non-conforming people. Self-definition is at the discretion of the individual.

‘I saw Sar weekly from my second trimester and I don’t think I could have survived my pregnancy without her! Sar has a wonderful energy and her passion and commitment shines through her practice. I would highly recommend her to all pregnant mamas in need of body and soul rejuvenation during pregnancy’


'Sar is intuitive and highly skilled in knowing what you need. The postnatal massage was incredible. I felt deep relaxation, but also so much more. Her bodywork took me back to the labour and helped me release things I wasn't even aware I was holding onto. Sar is deeply respectful and passionate about women's health, so I always feel incredible safe and able to fully let go in her presence. Her bodywork is essential for any pregnant woman and an absolute must after birth. I can't recommend Sar highly enough to any woman who needs some relaxation, downtime or to de-stress.'


'Sar is an incredible space holder. She provides a warm, nurturing and loving space – welcoming you home to your body and the inherent wisdom stored within. Expertly inviting you to a deeper self-awareness through her treatments. Sar has helped me reconnect with my fertility, recover from pregnancy loss and supported my physical and emotional body to be healthy and well. Thank you!'


‘After trying many other practitioners, I have been a client of Sar's for two years and every treatment has been highly beneficial and really pleasurable. I suffer from serious disc problems, so I don't just want a relaxing massage. She has an excellent knowledge of the human body and is very professional. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a special massage therapist.’


'Sar helped me reconnect with my body and helped me discover what self care is really about. She was treating me for fertility issues, digestive issues, stress and anxiety. Sar helped me reconnect with my body, accept it with its imperfections and love my body and myself. After a little more than 6 months of treatment, I got my first period in 6 years. Then, a few months later I got another one, and before I knew it I fell pregnant with a second baby. A miracle baby who is about to come out, despite having been told by many doctors that I would never be able to have a baby without IVF. I am so grateful for having crossed paths with Sar.'
