WELLNESS

We believe wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices towards a more successful existence.

HEALTH

Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease. (World Health Organization)

COMPLEMENTARY HEALTH

is a “broad range of healing philosophies, approaches, and therapies that mainstream Western (conventional) medicine does not commonly use, accept, study, understand, or make available”.
(US National Institutes of Health)

Complementary health resources provide an additional layer of support to the support you already receive from your primary healthcare providers.
