Excerpt from the
Enjoying optimal health, happiness and longevity are the goals of most individuals. Health, however, is not something that can be “picked-up” on the way home from work, packaged and marketed in the latest, trendiest marketing promotion, or achieved by popping pills or relying on supplements.
For a person to be healthy, he or she must gain clarity, motivate and work at health. This poses a challenge to many of our earth’s contemporary Westernized inhabitants. The Path to Total Health, therefore, is one that must encourage people to reconnect with themselves and find balance. For us, we believe this can be achieved by blending the wisdom and philosophy of the 2,500-year-old complete medical system of Traditional Chinese Medicine with contemporary knowledge and approaches to health, diet, and exercise. This is the essence of lifestyle change. . .
Remember the tortoise and the hare? . . . This story is the underlying principle that guides our program to health behavior change on the course to total health. The Tortoise ApproachTM allows the person to slow down, proceed at an individualized pace, take time to relax, enjoy and practice living.
By blending the most practical and useful aspects of ancient traditions of TCM theory and healthcare with contemporary perspectives on nutrition and exercise, we can bring this approach to the next level, one that is appropriate for the reality that we live and breathe in today. We incorporate these three major ingredients in our approach to total health.
