Holistic Medicine

Clinic-Pine-TreeOur holistic clinic offers effective and versatile complementary treatments that can help with a wide range of ailments. Complementary therapies not only help with health issues but can provide profound relaxation and a natural way to recharge in the rush of modern life.

Complementary medicine recognizes we are all unique individuals and that the body and mind function as an integrated whole. Just as stress will affect the body, so will poor functioning of the body affect the clarity of thought and the emotions.  Holistic treatment aims not only to address specific issues but also their underlying causes, providing a long lasting solution, not just symptomatic relief.  However, it is important to stress that it is not necessary to have a specific health concern before considering treatment. Many people choose complementary therapies as a powerful and proactive way to help them stay well and take control of their health as part of their health conscious lifestyle.

Holistic treatment is gentle and non invasive and side effects are rare. Therapists take a thorough health history at the initial consultation so that all relevant factors can be taken into account when treating. This will include any medical history as well as more general questions about the systems of the body, diet, exercise and stress levels. Depending on the therapy there may be specific physical diagnoses such as pulse taking. All of these different aspects enable the therapist to build a complete holistic picture of the person..

Holistic treatments can be used either on their own or in combination with conventional medicine. This may be particularly important in the case of serious illness or injury where a person may be undergoing conventional treatment but would like extra help with things like wellbeing, low energy and poor sleep. Complementary treatment can also help facilitate recovery from serious illness.

Like all medicine some holistic treatments may be more suited to some conditions than others or indeed some people may respond better to certain treatments rather than others.  Even a combination of treatments may be the most effective.
