Holistic Health is a key component of Chiva-Som’s Health & Wellness concept. Holistic Health maintains a staff of doctors, nurses, naturopaths and therapists as well as specialist consultants, all of whom have a commitment to providing a holistic approach to your health needs. In this sense, Chiva-Som is one of the pioneers of integrative medicine and continues to develop this as a core function.
Your path begins with a Health & Wellness consultation. Here your health status, short term goals and long term needs are addressed, and appropriate activities are recommended. Whether you require advice on known health problems, choose a detoxification program, want to embark on a preventative health kick or even deal with emotional issues, our Health & Wellness consultants will guide you to the appropriate services and therapists.
Chiva-Som does not consider itself a primary care facility and we don’t promise radical cures, though we have our fair share of success. We do offer to take the time to consider your health carefully and give you informed options and recommend treatments based on the best that modern and complementary medicine have to offer.
Education is a primary function of our Holistic Health team dedicated to teaching you about your health, and showing you how using different treatment strategies can enhance the quality of your life.
Our team believes in communication between therapists who work together to optimize your progress. Our fitness team, physiotherapy team and spa therapists are integral to offering complete care for your mind, body and spirit.
Unique to Chiva-Som is our use of Complementary Diagnostic Techniques. Additional insight is gained into your health through methods such as Iridology, Live Blood Analysis. Issues skipped over by orthodox testing such as toxicity, digestive function, essential fatty acid balances and food intolerances may be identified through these methods.
Finally, we believe in the concept of your health span: your measure of years of good health, vitality and activity. Although its debatable how much we can influence our lifespan, our quest is to assist you in ensuring your health span is as close as possible to your lifespan.
