Today we’d like to introduce you to Haz Adiguzel.
Haz, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
We are nearing our 100 day mark as a brand new, holistic wellness clinic. This business represents over a decade of combined study, certification and licensure in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Asian Bodywork and Kundalini Yoga. Through my education in human physiology and psychology, I bring unique interpersonal skills and valuable anatomical and self-care knowledge as it pertains to healing. In addition to having just completed Level 2 Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training, I have imminent plans to transition onward from my Master of Science of TCM toward a Doctorates.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Fortunately it has been a smooth road so far. I have relocated to be closer to the practice and now have a 5 minute walk.
Sagency Wellness – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
Sagency Wellness is known for providing attention to each client’s unique needs. The idea is not so much to “heal” the patient, as much as it is to help that person tap into their healing potential through the application of systematized knowledge compiled over thousands of years. The patient’s challenges are viewed through the lens of millennia of wisdom in acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, Kundalini Yoga and traditional Eastern bodywork.
I am very proud to have such a wide perspective on the human mind, body and spirit as a licensed acupuncturist, licensed massage therapist, Level 2 Kundalini Yoga teacher and BA in Psychology. I consider the integration of these ancient technologies with the here and now as vital to our collective understanding of where we are as a society, both technologically and humanistically. When you get a massage at Sagency, your body thanks you for days and your spirit thanks you longer, if you’re listening to it.
What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
So far in the last 100 days, the most memorable moment was when I ran into a patient I had worked with extensively during my internship, right outside the building on the day I picked up my keys!
It is always very gratifying as well as privilege to be a facilitator of a healing experience, where for example, a patient who could hardly walk up the stairs to the suite is waltzing out by the treatment’s end. I tuck these into a little mental drawer to call upon when working through difficult transitions and decisions as a business. It helps me remember the fact that my patients’ health and my business’ health are interwoven.
