When we visit our family doctors, we usually present them with a set of symptoms – headaches, digestive problems, sore throats. Our doctors give us treatments, prescribe medications or refer us to specialists with a view to treating those specific symptoms. While this may be an effective approach for some conditions, there are many times when a more holistic approach is called for.
This is where holistic health care comes in. Instead of focusing solely on a set of symptoms, a holistic health practitioner looks at the person as a whole. All parts of the human body and mind are interconnected. What this means is that your headache might be caused by an imbalance in your digestive system. Your ankle might be hurting because of the way you hold your spine while you are seated at a desk.
Holistic therapy is not focused on the treatment of disease, it is focused on keeping you healthy in body and mind. The goal is to strengthen your immune system, and ensure that the different systems in your body work together harmoniously.
At HHC Centre, we believe that better physical and mental health is within everybody’s reach. Unlike your family doctor, who you only see when something is wrong, we encourage you to come and see us whether you are sick or healthy. Although our practitioners all have different specialties, we work together as a team to help you and your family accomplish optimal health.
Come and see us if you are sick or in pain. We will help you find the root cause of your symptoms, and we will treat you in a way that allows the different systems in your body to work together in the best possible way. This might include nutritional coaching, holistic medicine, a biomechanical analysis, chiropractic care and much more.
Come and see us if you are healthy. Are you trying to get fitter, faster or stronger? Are you looking for information about how you can improve the way in which your body uses the nutrients it gets? Are you and your spouse wanting to get healthier in preparation for trying to conceive a baby? Our practitioners are here to help you accomplish your wellness goals.
Come and see us if you have a chronic condition. If you have asthma, you may think you are doomed to a lifetime of inhalers. If you have Type Two diabetes, you may be concerned about strict dietary restrictions. No matter what your condition is, we can help you effectively manage it. Some individuals with asthma, allergies and other conditions find that their symptoms all but disappear when they are put onto a holistic treatment plan.
Come and see us if you are struggling with your mental health or relationships. At HHC Centre, we believe in the interconnectedness of the body and mind. People who are experiencing anxiety, depression, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and a host of other conditions can benefit greatly from a treatment approach that encourages them to care for their bodies while they are taking care of their minds. We offer a host of counselling and psychotherapy services, as well as relaxation therapies and life coaching.
At HHC Centre, one of our missions is to break the stigma surrounding mental illness. Too many people spend years struggling with depression, anxiety and other mental health conditions, because they are too ashamed or embarrassed to seek help. Everyone deserves to be healthy, not only in body, but also in mind, and our comprehensive counseling and therapy services will help you accomplish that. We are friendly and approachable, and we care about helping our clients lead full and happy lives.
The mental health services that we offer include the following:
