Acupuncture is a collection of procedures which involves the stimulation of points on the body using a variety of techniques, such as penetrating the skin with needles that are then manipulated manually or by electrical stimulation. It is one of the key components of traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and is among the oldest healing practices in the world.

Ayurveda is an ancient philosophy founded on a deep understanding of Vedic principles about the human body, mind and spirit. The aim of Ayurveda is to achieve optimum health based on permanent eternal principles of living. These principles are harnessed by an armoury of physical treatments and psychological tools including: nutrition, massage, natural herbal remedies, yoga, meditation and detoxification. Ayurveda is a complete system of healthcare that can support wellness and treat specific ailments and conditions.

Bio-Resonance therapy is an innovative holistic medicine technique that combines holistic principles with electrical technology. The device is used for both diagnostic and treatment purposes.

Massage is a universal therapy that is practiced through many different modalities. Essentially, massage employs soft tissue manipulation to achieve physical (anatomical), functional (physiological), and psychological results.

Massage is a systemic therapy that improves blood lymph and general fluid circulation, bringing oxygen and nutrients to every single cell. Specific techniques help relieve muscle tension and pain; increase flexibility and mobility; regulate and improve the function of internal systems such as the endocrine and immune systems; and integrate mind and body.

Focusing on your children’s health, early on in their life can act as a preventive measure for future health problems in the future, strengthening their physical, emotional and mental health.

Colon Hydrotherapy is a gentle therapy, which involves the slow introduction of warm, filtered water into the colon via the rectum. The water is introduced at a very low and carefully controlled pressure. The water, combined with gentle abdominal massage, helps to soften faecal matter and hardened deposits so that they can be expelled naturally by your colon and piped away with the waste water. The therapy is completely hygienic as all equipment is disposable and sterile. Also rest assured that your modesty is preserved at all times.

 

Oral health and dentistry have their place in the overall health of patients. The Hale Clinic has established a dental service based on treating periodontal gum disease, that represents the most direct connection between oral and general health.

Modern periodontal treatment starts by determining which bacteria are present in a periodontal gum infection. The Hale Clinic has chosen the BOST treatment system, which is supported by dental research.

Our bodies detoxify naturally every day which supports us to maintain vitality and wellbeing. A slow detoxification system and a multitude of internal and external toxic exposure cause the body to gradually become overloaded and will prevent us from achieving optimum health.

All treatments aim to optimise and encourage natural detoxification and elimination pathways.

Healing involves the channelling of universal energy through the hands of the practitioner to the recipient. Healing is a natural, non-invasive holistic approach that has the intention of promoting self healing, to bring a sense of well being and peace to the recipient. Healing is carried out in the presence of the client and may involve the laying of hands on the body, or the hands may be held off the body. Healing does not involve massage or manipulation.

Healing is not associated with any particular denomination or belief system. There are various branches of healing including: “Spiritual Healing”, “Reiki Healing” and various forms of “Energy Healing”. All treatments aim to utilise one’s own resources to restore balance: physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Healing can be used as a preventative measure or as a complementary treatment in any healing process.

Homeopathy is a holistic healing system that focuses on the individual, and treats specific physical, mental and emotional symptoms to achieve long lasting benefits by stimulating the body’s self healing mechanisms. Homeopathic remedies are a unique, potency fused energy medicine, drawn from the plant, mineral and animal worlds. These highly diluted substances are given in mainly tablet form, and the selected homeopathic remedy then acts as a trigger to the body’s natural healing process.

Homeopathy works on the principle that “like cures like” – that is, a substance that would cause symptoms in a healthy person is used to cure those same symptoms in illness. Homeopathy has a wide application and understands that good health involves treating both mind and body.

Hypnotherapy is a natural and powerful therapy that is able to create effective change for resolving a variety of problems such as phobias, panic attacks, obsessive behaviour, trauma, emotional concerns, certain allergies, skin problems, lack of motivation, smoking and weight control.

The essence of meditation is to find an anchor of peace and calm within. It is self evident that nothing in our life remains permanent. Meditation creates our own inner oasis untouched by constant change and uncertainty.

Western Science has been focused on understanding our outer world through the medium of the five senses. The Ancient Yogis took a different approach; they wanted to understand their inner world - our mind and consciousness. By sitting still they were able to calm the mind and access a deep inner peace. Like scientists, they were able to develop “scientific laws/techniques” of how this peace could be accessed, thus the ancient science of meditation was created. Thousands of years later, Western scientists are able to quantify and measure many of the physiological, mental, emotional and spiritual benefits of the ancient yogis “inner science”.

In the past, Meditation was practiced in the high peaks of the Himalayas, separated from the material world. This is now not the case, meditation techniques can be practiced in combination with your daily life.

The musculoskeletal system provides structure, protection, balance and movement to the human body. Good alignment and proper functioning promotes general physical and mental wellbeing, and aids self awareness so as to encourage empowerment and ownership of health.

Connective tissue is everywhere in the human body. It is a complex matrix that supports, contains and connects cells in different forms such as cartilage, bone, muscles, lymph, blood, ligaments, tendons and fascia. Musculoskeletal and Bodywork practitioners are facilitators of normalizing structural and mechanical health by treating the connective tissue of the body. Connective tissue in general can be considered a fluid structure, responsive to touch and space, that has the potential for transformation.

There are a variety of different approaches to Nutritional therapy. At the core of each modality is the application of nutrition and health science to optimise each individual’s health potential. Nutritional therapy can be used to help alleviate a wide range of conditions, and provide advice on disease prevention and control.

The Hale Clinic provides various modalities of Psychotherapy. Each therapy deals with different types of psychological and emotional issues. Psychotherapy is essentially a “talking treatment” in which the client talks with their therapist to help overcome issues including; stress, emotional problems and relationship problems. The client is recognised as an active participant in their treatment progress, and both client and therapist work together to address the client’s thought processes, feelings and behaviour; to understand inner conflicts, and find new ways to deal with, and alleviate distress.

Skin is a dynamic, changeable structure that interacts with, and reflects every part of our being - physical, mental and emotional; and our relationship with the external environment.

Good skin care is rooted in lifestyle choices and awareness of one's health. Being aware of how you breathe can make the difference between a glowing and dull complexion. Choosing to have less sugar in your diet can prevent your skin prematurely aging.Being conscious of what effects your skin empowers you to take control of the way your skin looks and feels. Choosing natural products can enhance the skin's complexion to look more supple, radiant and fresh.

Yoga refers to traditional physical and mental disciplines originating in India. The word is associated with meditative practices in the east. The Sanskrit word yoga has many meanings, and is derived from the Sanskrit root "yuj", meaning union or to unite. Yoga is thought to have originated in 3300BC in the Indus Valley. Ancient Vedic texts have been found in the region from this date, depicting figures in positions resembling a common yoga or meditation pose, showing "a form of ritual discipline", suggesting a precursor of yoga.
