|Full Circle is a nurturing, healing environment where practitioners from both conventional and alternative medicines are dedicated to serving the whole person – body, mind and spirit.Integrative medicine incorporates elements of complementary and alternative medicine alongside conventional, mainstream methods of diagnosis and treatment. It couples the latest scientific advances with the most profound insights of ancient healing systems, offering you and your family the best ways to preserve health, increase longevity and speed recovery from illness.At its heart, however, it aims to do more than just add new tools to the medicine bag. Integrative medicine aims to enhance current medical practice and, although perceived as a new movement, it in fact re-focuses medicine on its ancient roots and values:
Whole person care
Attending not only to the physical but also to the psychological, emotional, social, spiritual and cultural dimensions of each person
Relationship and patient-centered care
Recognizing the fundamental importance of the relationship between the patient and the health care provider, deeply respecting the wishes and experience of the individual patient, and valuing the patient as an active partner in his or her own care
Believing that health care providers should be teachers, facilitating patients in caring for themselves in order to both prevent and alleviate illness
Supporting informed decision-making based on the best available evidence on the safety and effectiveness of all treatment options
In a world influenced by political, economic and self promoting causes, it can be difficult to sift through the profusion of health care providers, modalities and miraculous cures. At Full Circle, we have created a setting where health practitioners can provide comprehensive and individualized health and healing for the mind, body and spirit in a nurturing environment designed to empower families and individuals of all ages.
