Acupuncture is an amazing tool used to balance the body to decrease pain, heal injury, promote relaxation, and induce labour. It can help to improve nausea, sleep, digestion, and hormone balance. It does wonders to regulate the menstrual cycle and often plays a big role in improving fertility.

From a Western medical perspective, inserting a needle into a sore or muscle or joint is thought to stimulate the nervous system, calm areas in the brain where pain is experienced, release the body's own painkillers, and release muscle trigger points.
From a Chinese medical perspective - inserting needles is thought to correct imbalances in the flow of energy, or qi, in the body, and to stimulate, calm, smooth, or build up organ systems and channels as needed.
The first insertion of the needle is usually felt with a tiny prick, but otherwise the sensation is very mild and even patients who don't like needles typically enjoy the treatment.
Our Naturopathic Doctor and Acupunturists provide the acupuncture treatments at Robin’s Nest Family Care, so the treatment is very comprehensive. If time allows, we also encourage patients to relax and listen to a guided meditation during the treatment.

What is the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA) model?
A non-verbal approach to healing that involves the gentle placement of up to five small, sterilized disposable needles into specific sites on each ear. The recipients sit quietly in a group setting for 30-45 minutes.

Bowen therapy is a gentle, hands-on therapy that allows the body to rest, relax and restore its own function. It can help to reactivate the recovery process in situations where healing from trauma, sickness or surgery has plateaued. It is a manual therapy gentle enough to be used on babies right up to the elderly or critically ill.

Bowen therapy consists of a series of “Moves” that are followed by short pauses or “Wait” times. The Bowen Move is very distinctive and is applied at very precise points on the body. The Move is a rolling-type motion using the thumbs and forefingers, and is designed to stimulate the connective tissue and nerve pathways. The Wait times allow the body to relax, thereby allowing the body to heal itself.

There are a wide variety of acute and chronic conditions for which Bowen Therapy is used. Some of these issues include, but are not limited to, improvement of mobility, reduced stress and pain, increased energy and circulation, lymphatic drainage and detoxification.

Bowen therapy can be used to decrease back pain in expectant Moms. Baby Bowen can be used to treat colic and digestive issues in young children.

Live and Dry Blood Analysis, also known as nutritional microscopy, is the science of qualitative blood analysis for the purpose of evaluating health at the cellular level. The main objective is to recognize any imbalances within the body, and to find the ideal progression towards health. Blood Analysis is a great tool for naturopaths, nutritionists and a variety of other complimentary healthcare practitioners.

LIVE BLOOD Analysis is performed by taking one drop of blood through a small finger prick. The blood sample is immediately viewed using a powerful dark field microscope and a camera that projects the image on the computer screen. It is then evaluated and explained in detail. We will work together with your health care team to assist in balancing the blood by offering dietary and lifestyle recommendations.

DRY BLOOD Analysis is performed in conjunction with the live blood analysis. A drop of blood is placed on a slide in a series of 8 layers and allowed to dry. The slide is then viewed under a microscope. The results will give additional insights into your health, and illustrates the health of the different organs in the body.

Do you know anyone who sees an osteopath? When they talk to you about it do you smile and nod and wonder what on earth they are talking about? Osteopathy is a holistic (as in whole, global) approach to treating the body which takes into account every stressful event your body has been through to date.

Osteopathy is a natural medicine with a basic philosophy that the body has an innate ability to self-regulate and self-heal. Osteopathic treatment uses a gentle “hands-on” or manual approach to identify areas of the body that are restricted and to gently release these areas in order to restore normal function. Osteopaths’ main tools are their hands and highly refined sense of palpation, which they use to assess the state of the body’s tissues and systems.

Struggling to conceive? Dealing with birth trauma or loss? Stricken with worry or fear surrounding childbirth? These are common experiences among mothers and mothers-to-be, and so many are left to deal with these emotional wounds on their own, or forced to hold them inside to fester. When we ignore our emotions and continue to carry our non-supportive stories inside of us they can manifest in our physical body. Perhaps you have unwavering heartburn, recurring UTIs, migraines, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, or fibroids. Have you ever thought about the energetic reasoning behind these?

During sessions, Reiki can promote a deep state of relaxation through a hands-on technique. Clients often drift in and out of sleep while the practitioner works with Reiki to address the emotional wounds you cannot see. Reiki is universal healing energy that can bring light to these old wounds while supporting you to release them and begin a healing process.

Reiki is a gentle service and complimentary to all other holistic and medical care. Reiki holds no doctrine and is open to anyone looking for alternative support on their healing journey.


Rhythmic Movement - Primitive Reflex Integration

This therapy uses developmental movements, gentle isometric pressure and self-awareness to integrate primitive/neo-natal reflexes with the goal to help overcome learning, sensory, emotional and behavioural challenges for everyone from infants to seniors.

This therapy uses developmental movements, gentle isometric pressure and self-awareness to integrate primitive/neo-natal reflexes with the goal to help overcome learning, sensory, emotional and behavioural challenges for everyone from infants to seniors. Retained primitive reflexes have been shown to be a factor in conditions such as ADHD, sensory processing disorder, autism, and learning disabilities. They can contribute to issues such as coordination, balance, sensory perceptions, fine motor skills, sleep, immunity, energy levels, impulse control, concentration and all levels of social, emotional, and intellectual learning.

The retention of primitive reflexes can be due to a number of factors, including skipped or short developmental milestones as an infant. The act of birth itself is a key factor in helping to integrate these reflexes, so a difficult/traumatic birth or a birth via cesarean may be a contributing factor. Infants with tongue tie and/or feeding difficulties can greatly benefit from this practice.

These primitive reflexes, even if previously integrated, may emerge at various points in one's life. Specifically, due to injuries such as falls or concussions, chronic illness, traumatic life events, etc.
