What is Holistic Medicine

Holistic Medicine is defined by the Canadian Holistic Medical Association as follows: it is a system of health care which fosters a cooperative relationship among all those involved, leading towards optimal attainment of the physical, mental and emotional aspects of health.

It emphasizes the need to look at the whole person. It encompasses all stated modalities of diagnosis and treatment including drugs and surgery if no safe alternative exists. Holistic medicine focuses on education and responsibility for personal efforts to achieve balance and well being.

Suzan Walter, President of the American Holistic Health Association (AHHA), put together an excellent summary of the principles of Holistic Health. The summary can be found on the AHHA Web Page.

At Juntendo Clinic, we strongly advocate a holistic approach to your health and we believe acupuncture is an integral part of Holistic Medicine; we focus on the physical, mental and emotional aspects of your health. We treat each patient as an individual who presents unique challenges and opportunities. We perform a thorough initial examination and consultation session, and devise a unique treatment plan with each patient.

Testimonials

  • "Earlier this year, I woke up one day with extreme pain in my right shoulder. After a trip to the emergency room and an orthopedic surgeon appointment, it was discovered that I had calcific tendinopathy. The diagnosis was that I would need to be in a shoulder immobilizer for 3-4 months for painful rehab and months of harsh prescription medications. This is when I consulted with Dr. Kari and Kimberley. After the first treatment, I was able to remover the shoulder immobilizer. By the third treatment, I was back at full strength. I owe my ability to enjoy my summer to Juntendo Clinic and recommend Dr. Kari and Kimberly to everyone I speak with."
