Sarah Pulliam is their second FNP on site at Sundara. She has been in the medical field for over a decade now. She became a certified FNP through the AANP in 2016 and worked in urgent care for a short while before beginning a career in endocrinology. In her eight years of endocrinology, Sarah developed a passion for treating PCOS, managing women’s hormones, treating thyroid conditions – as well as overall health. Sarah has a love for finding the root cause of health issues and treating patients holistically. 

Functional Nutrition and Health Coaching

As you might have noticed, a well-rounded and full length approach is used for all services at Sundara. This includes health coaching as well. Sundara’s dietician takes a functional approach to treatment and works to find root causes, optimize gut health, and uses small manageable steps that lead to lasting changes. The focus is more on helping you build a healthy relationship with food so that habits can be more easily formed. In addition, you will walk away with skills such as grocery shopping, recipe development, and meal planning.

Sundara’s team understands that each individual’s skin is unique and desires specialized care. Therefore, all of their esthetic services take the same unique approach of providing personalized solutions. Not to mention, they value clean beauty – as in using the cleanest and most natural products on the market. Your safety is a top priority for the team, so they utilize products that are free of harmful toxins and chemicals. 


Within the skin care and esthetics services, Sundara has some pretty unique offerings. For example, they provide PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma Facial) which is the process of taking your own blood, and concentrating the platelets in the plasma. This is then used for a facial that helps to reduce wrinkles, heal scar tissue, and promote healing.

Additionally, Sundara offers Microneedling services. Microneedling uses small, sterilized needles to create controlled micro-punctures to the skin, which in turn causes the body to create new collagen. It is effective in treating acne scars and stretch marks and leaves you with brighter, firmer skin. 

Microneedling can also be paired with PRP for an even more beneficial effect. It’s a potent combination that can help accelerate your treatment. 

Massage Therapy

There are also multiple options for Massage Therapy at Sundara. Whether you’re looking to relax, reduce soreness, or really loosen up your body, they have a service to match. Sessions can range from an hour and all the way up to two hours. Sundara additionally offers therapeutic massage, deep tissue, prenatal, hot stone, and ashiatsu. 

Ashiatsu, also known as barefoot massage, is where the practitioner uses overhead support beams and is able to “walk” on the body to stretch and apply pressure in very unique and therapeutic ways.

Reiki and Pilates

Sundara does an amazing job of working with the body to help activate natural healing pathways that rejuvenate and restore. One of these unique processes is through Japanese energy work called Reiki. Reiki cleanses and balances the energy system in the body. As a result, the body’s natural self-healing mechanisms strengthen, helping to establish optimum health.

Movement is also medicine, and Sundara has a Pilates studio to do just that. It’s a full body workout that improves flexibility, strength, and balance. They offer classes for people of all experiences, whether you’re a beginner or advanced. Even better is that all of the mats or equipment are provided for you at the studio! The studio also has private sessions available with their dedicated instructor. To book your class, click here.
