The days in which doctors would simply write a prescription for a new opioid or anti-depressant are fading quickly. Instead, a new and improved public health model combines conventional and alternative practices with a steadily increasing focus on holistic care.
According to a recent Mayo Clinic study, nearly 40% of adults surveyed reported using some kind of complementary alternative medicine to treat symptoms related to a wide variety of mental and physical health issues. And for many, these treatments have resulted in significant improvements to their health and quality of life.
At Ananda we offer an unparalleled range of alternative therapies, including but not limited to:
Osteopathy is a form of drug-free non-invasive manual medicine that focuses on total body health by treating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework, which includes the joints, muscles and spine. The aim is to positively affect the body’s nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems.
Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability.
Physiotherapists help people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice.
Naturopathy—also called naturopathic medicine—is a medical system that has evolved from a combination of traditional practices and health care approaches popular in Europe during the 19th century.
People visit naturopathic practitioners for various health-related purposes, including primary care, overall well-being, and treatment of illnesses.
Massage therapy is manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being. There are dozens of types of massage therapy methods (also called modalities).
Acupuncture is a technique in which practitioners stimulate specific points on the body—most often by inserting thin needles through the skin. Results from a number of studies suggest that acupuncture may help ease types of pain that are often chronic such as low-back pain, neck pain, and osteoarthritis/knee pain.
Internal Deficiency Infusions
Internal Deficiency Infusions are a method of feeding vitamins, minerals, and other natural substances directly into a patient’s bloodstream. Bypassing the digestive system is the main advantage of IV nutrition. When substances are given orally they must be processed through the stomach and the intestines. Many substances may be rendered inactive in the digestive tract, or may not be well absorbed due to poor intestinal function.
