The Clinic

“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not just the absence of disease”

- World Health Organization (WHO)
Our clinic utilizes a set of Consultations, Treatments and Therapies that allow us to approach the individual as a whole!

Unlike the Western (allopathic) approach (where symptoms are seen in isolation) the integrative practice addresses the patient in all dimensions: physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual.

Through various forms of diagnosis and treatment, our aim is to restore balance to all aspects of our patient’s lives, as we believe that health is not merely the absence of disease!

In an integrative approach, there is also a great focus on prevention and early detection of imbalances as well as on teaching and empowering the patient so that they are increasingly informed and able to take care of themselves.

Assessing the relationship between the organs and stimulating the body's curative impulse, we seek to treat the cause of the problem and not just its symptoms, as this is the only way to reach a state of full health!

 

Integrative Medicine is a complete therapeutic approach that combines the knowledge of conventional medicine (allopathic) with techniques and knowledge from other areas of complementary, functional and holistic medicine.
