Combining the best of both worlds
While Western and Eastern medicine share the common goal of healing, their philosophies and approaches are very different.
Western medicine emphasises the treating of disease within the body by way of specific drugs and surgery.
Eastern medicine focuses on disease prevention through maintaining balance and harmony within ourselves and the environment. Both approaches have their individual advantages and validity. Used in tandem they form a powerful combination.
The Four Lenses
At Desana, we believe that achieving life-long wellness requires an integrated approach. We also feel that our health can be viewed through four distinct but overlapping lenses and that personal wellness strategies should account for all four views.
The most traditional lens is perhaps the most obvious. The physical structure and appearance of our bodies is often the first indicator of a problem. However, a true analysis of the body’s structure requires more than a skin-deep approach. We are marvels of nature, with intricate and inter-related systems of a complexity that is still to be fully comprehended.
Integrated systems require more than a cursory inspection. We must go deeper; to the root causes of issues and apply treatments that promote overall wellness.
At Desana we provide a range of therapies and approaches to provide the kind of personalised care that your body requires.
“A healthy mind means a healthy body”.
The positive energy that comes from emotional strength and balance feeds the physical body and boosts vitality.
However, the power within our minds can become blocked by events, habits and unresolved feelings. We may just lack the basic life-skills necessary to lead a full and happy life.
At Desana the connection between Body and Mind is revered and celebrated and we help you unlock that positive energy within.
Our world is cluttered with ever-changing notions of health, nutrition and vitality.
What was good for you last week is this week’s “bad food”.
However, we believe that the human body’s subtle and intricate relationship with foods and toxins should not be subject to fads and gimmicks. At Desana, we analyse your needs and lifestyle and make recommendations based on proven medical research.
Perhaps the least understood (at least by traditional western medicine) of the four lenses concerns the electro-magnetic forces that course through our bodies.
Just like the cars that we drive, an un-tuned body can be sluggish, uncomfortable and can lead to physical problems. Yet so often, we find it difficult to put our finger on exactly what it is that is out of balance.
At Desana, we use a range of techniques to diagnose properly and accurately, and with the use of plain language and a caring spirit we ensure that you have a clear picture of what needs to be done.
Our care and treatments improve flow, remove blockages and calibrate the body’s electro-magnetic system, leaving you feeling cleansed, calm and full of vitality.
