Truly effective health care must balance all the unique concerns and dimensions of each person’s life, whether targeting a specific affliction such as chronic pain or trying to be more proactive about long-term wellness. At Xiaolan Health Centre, we provide that necessary balance – in the subtle interplay between nutrition and emotion, fitness and self-awareness, body and spirit. It begins with bringing together two medical traditions to complement, support and learn from one another. The East offers us pathways to understanding and treatment that have stood the test of 5,000 years. It’s a tradition that believes in treating the whole person, not isolated symptoms – because it sees symptoms simply as signs, as a language by which the body expresses its need to be whole again.
From the West, on the other hand, we take proven approaches to diagnosis and care and weave them together with the best of alternative therapies. We appreciate that there are insights to be gained from science, that technologies can help reveal problems and repair what is damaged. But again, never in isolation, only as part of an overall assessment of how you are living your life. Above all, we focus not just on treatment but, far more important, on prevention. We want to help you take control of your personal health, to begin a journey toward living a fuller, happier life. In doing so we hope to make Xiaolan Health Centre both a welcome alternative and an inspiring model for a more humane, holistic, multi-faceted approach to wellness. A place where you can find balance.
