David Ballantyne

David is a practitioner of the gentle Japanese style of Acupuncture & of firm deep tissue massage incorporating Chinese Tuina, Shiatsu, Trigger Point and Sports massage. He also utilises Craniosacral Osteopathic techniques to realign the whole musculoskeletal system and correct spinal vertebrae displacement without the unsettling “cracking” of joints.


David holds a Bachelor of Health Science in Acupuncture, a Bachelor degree in Biomedical Science and certification in Remedial Massage. He is currently training in Craniosacral Osteopathy and is constantly expanding his studies in Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine.


His belief in the relationship of a body’s well balanced structure to reaching it’s optimal function is apparent in his treatments. By easing muscular tension, mobilizing joints and correcting vertebrae to free blood supply & nerve impulses, the vital organs are best able to respond to Acupuncture stimulation and the system perform in concert.


When every part of the machine is correctly adjusted and in perfect harmony, health will hold dominion over the human organism by laws as natural and immutable as the laws of gravity.  A. T. Still
