Read about holistic health care online and you can become easily confused. One site will tell you it is practised by a select few medical doctors. Another site might focus on nurses who use aspects of holistic health care in their work. Another site may focus on holistic mental health care while another might delve into the spiritual side of holistic healing.

The definition of holistic is “characterized by the belief that the parts of something are intimately interconnected and explicable only by reference to the whole.” In medicine, it is “characterized by the treatment of the whole person, taking into account mental and social factors, rather than just the symptoms of a disease.”

As effective as modern medicine can be, it largely treats the symptoms of a disease rather than looking into other factors that may have allowed the disease to occur or spread. Holistic health care takes a broader look and seeks to find the causes of dis-ease and help us live healthier,  happier lives without having to rely on medical intervention.

Leichhardt Holistic Health Care Centre

Holistic health care honours the contribution of medical science, but goes beyond it to consider the effects of diet, emotions, lifestyle and one’s general outlook on life as contributing factors to physical, mental and spiritual well being (ease) or dis-ease. That’s why you’ll find more than just one or two treatment modalities at Petrozzi Wellness Centre. If you want to experience natural, non-invasive treatment, you can find the following services at PWC:

  • Chiropractic
  • Wellness Psychology
  • Dietary Advice
  • Massage
  • Life Coaching

We also host seminars and retreats. Our speakers come from a variety of fields, but share one thing in common: they care about your health.

We take a holistic approach to health care and will help you find the best treatment or treatment for your condition.
