“Health is our greatest resource. Without our health, everything else in life is diminished. Holistic medicine is about supporting all levels of health; physical, mental/emotional and spiritual. As a holistic health practitioner, I help my clients get back on track with a healthy lifestyle and diet. Many illnesses can be prevented this way. I treat a broad variety of symptoms using acupuncture, energy work, Jin Shin Do Bodymind Acupressure, massage and herbal medicines to assist people in learning how to help themselves by adjusting their lifestyle. Qi gong is becoming central to my personal and professional practice. Qi gong is learning how to personally regulate the healing power of qi through the body in order to effect positive changes.” Dr. Gayl Hubatch, OMD

Testimonials

“I heard about Gayl on a radio talk show. My hands were in such pain I could only drive my car using my forefinger and thumb. It would kill me to shake hands with people. Months went by before I finally decided to call. Despite my fear of needles I had to give acupuncture a try. I am now able to snap my fingers easily, the pain is gone and the flexibility is back. Quite a lot of progress. “

“My last treatment helped tremendously. Within 2 days the difference was very noticeable. The redness and soreness reduced and the thickening and swelling less. I also feel like my inner stiches are dissolving. Acupuncture has made a huge difference in my mind and body. I feel better all over. I have less anxiety and are more balanced in my life.
