Going Beyond Medicine

Going Beyond Medicine

Complementary Therapies

It has been long known that His Royal Highness Prince Charles is a strong advocate and champion as to the importance and benefits of the use of Complementary Therapies in maintaining holistic well- being. To increase the profile and reinforce this belief, HRH Prince Charles produced a video at the Royal College of Medicine for the

Sustainable Healthcare Conference in November 2016

The “Going Beyond Medicine”  programme focused on different ways of improving health and wellbeing from self-management, social prescribing, Complementary Therapies to innovate digital ideas to put patients at the heart of sustainable care. HRH, encourages us to embrace a more integrated approach that not only treats disease and illness, but also creates wellbeing.

Our approach at Healthy Harmony in Tenerife

At Healthy Harmony we would always advocate that anyone who has been prescribed medication by a physician continues to do so. However, we passionately believe that although this may address and hopefully elevate the condition and symptoms it will not necessarily re balance the body in regaining Homeostasis.

Homeostasis, can be described as, any self-regulating process by which biological systems tend to maintain stability while adjusting to conditions that are optimal for survival. If homeostasis is successful, life continues; if unsuccessful, disaster or death ensues.  When we are are unwell, although we may think only the area with the presenting system is being affected. However, this will not be the case as all our systems in our body are both interconnected and interdependent with some unable to function correctly without this connection and mutual reliance. This is why at Healthy Harmony Tenerife we chose our mantra to be “We see you as more than a symptom”.

Our mission at Healthy Harmony Tenerife is to assist in restoring holistic balance of physical, emotional and psychological well being through our individualised Complementary Therapies adapted to each person so they get maximum benefit.
