Finding the best answers involves asking the right questions.  Knowing which questions to ask is the basis of creating an effective therapeutic partnership.  In other words a personalised program that opens the door to a fuller, more enjoyable life experience.

Why an integrative approach is more important than ever

Resolving issues quickly and efficiently is an expectation of modern life, particularly in urban centres.  This means that quick fixes to get you back on your feet or back to work are a hot commodity – and a flawed one.  As practitioners of Integrative medicine, our firm belief is that all aspects of medical care should be evidence-based and aim to promote individual and community wellbeing.  The depth of inquiry and openness to typically less invasive treatments is what reflects a high standard of care and more effective prevention.

Joining you on the journey to better health

Pushing healthcare beyond the purely passive to a programme made more effective by a joint effort and commitment between health care provider and patient is key.  Only by involving and investing individuals in the one asset that touches every facet of their life, can we be sure that we are making a difference.   This is how we promote positive and lasting change.  Anything else feels like supervision at best.

Health Wise IM passionately pursues effective, individual care for those that see the benefits of engaging the body’s innate ability to restore equilibrium and good health.

What is Integrative Medicine (IM)? 

IM involves the appropriate use of conventional medicine in conjunction with complementary therapies to facilitate the body’s innate healing capacity.

We work holistically, taking into consideration all aspects of life that influence health, wellness and disease, performing thorough examinations of mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing, as well as our physical body.

IM is evidence-based, inquiry-driven and open to new healing paradigms. It is an approach that aims to prevent disease, but also promote health on a broader community level. Natural, effective and less invasive treatment is used wherever possible.

Patient and practitioner work together in the healing process, forming a therapeutic relationship. Our aim is to empower each client in supporting their personal health wisdom.

Care is individualised – we all have different needs, conditions, genetics and circumstances that need to be addressed.

As practitioners of integrative medicine, we aim to ‘walk our talk’ and exemplify these principles, and are committed patients of our own medicine.
