Our mission is to provide our guests with the following:

Integrated medical practitioner

We look at the immediate health concern in the context of all other physical and emotional symptoms, unique body type, and life circumstances. Relief of symptoms is provided in a way that is least invasive and as natural as possible. This may involve the use of herbal or nutritional supplements, neuromuscular stimulation techniques, breathwork, and mindfulness training. Western medicine is prescribed if absolutely necessary. Relevant blood tests or other investigations are ordered as appropriate. A long term strategy is then designed to maintain and support optimum health and a more conscious lifestyle.
