Acupuncture involves the precise insertion of extremely fine, single-use sterile needles into various points on the body in order to regulate the flow and function of qi, blood, and body fluids, thereby treating identified patterns of disharmony that are present in disease.
Patients typically find treatment painless, and often experience a sense of deep relaxation and well-being.
As a holistic modality, acupuncture is able to treat a wide range of ailments including all types of pain, psycho-emotional disorders such as stress, anxiety, and insomnia, digestive system dysfunction including IBS, and reproductive and menstrual irregularities.
Massage therapy involves the use of a wide range of manual therapeutic techniques by registered massage therapists to treat the soft tissues of the body, including the muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia in order to improve health and well-being.
Massage therapy is a safe and effective treatment option for people experiencing chronic or acute pain, physical dysfunction, or reduced mobility. Additionally, massage therapy is known to relieve stress and tension and improve circulation.
Craniosacral therapy, or CST, is a gentle hands-on treatment modality that involves very soft touch to detect and release restrictions in the body’s craniosacral system, which is comprised of the cerebrospinal fluid and membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord. By improving the function of the central nervous system, as well as the other major systems of the body (digestive, musculoskeletal, circulatory, and respiratory), CST has been shown to be effective in treating many conditions associated with physical pain and dysfunction, as well as depression, anxiety, and Post Traumatic Stress.
I have had several treatments at Haultain Health, and they have all been fantastic. The clinic is cozy and unpretentious, and the practitioners are excellent. I have seen David for several acupuncture treatments for gut troubles and sleep, and have always felt better afterward. David is thoughtful and compassionate in his approach and really listens to his clients. I have also seen Laura and Lin for massage treatments which were very relaxing. I would highly recommend this clinic.
I saw David for a course of treatment designed to help me with some digestive issues and overall wellness. He was thorough and careful in his assessments, professional and grounded in his demeanor, efficient with my time and the treatment really helped me. I think he has a gift for this work that comes from extensive knowledge/training, combined with exceptional listening skills, intuition, and a deep desire to help. ***** Highly recommend!!!
David is an excellent practitioner and the kind, informed and gentle care he provides is unmatched. I highly recommend this centre for straightforward and helpful acupuncture.
