Wellness clinics are a hallmark of our times - one-stop shopping centers for health. Some of these innovative health facilities focus on specific diseases or ailments, while others concentrate on enhancing inner beauty as well as outer beauty. These contemporary clinics often combine traditional medical services with alternative health options.

Today’s world demands more answers and more choices. No longer is it acceptable to just deal with some of the additional physical and mental complaints associated with an ailment. People want to deal with all their issues in order to feel better. Wellness clinics fill the gaps of traditional medical services.

The goal of wellness facilities is to achieve optimal overall wellness. Whether you suffer from a debilitating disease such as cancer or are plagued with chronic pain or stress issues, these medical centers offer a variety of services to enhance quality of life. From traditionally trained physicians to a diverse pool of therapists and alternative medicine professionals, wellness clinics can help you overcome just about any health obstacle with an integrated multi-discipline approach.

Wellness clinics offer a wide range of services. From preventative care to treatment and management of health issues, these centers embrace the idea of treating the body as a whole. Many serious ailments come with an array of other complications such as increased stress, fatigue or physical weakness. Wellness clinics can help with considerable medical complications due to illness or disease while helping with coping issues to enhance overall quality of life.

Physical and mental health issues are addressed at wellness clinics through a comprehensive treatment plan. These action plans often employ traditional techniques infused with alternative methods such as chiropractics, massage therapy or acupuncture. Diets and lifestyles are often evaluated and addressed also.

Today there are a variety of wellness clinics for just about anything. Most commonly, these health facilities treat diseases or help manage pain. However, there are centers for weight loss, insomnia, allergies, infertility, chronic fatigue and menstrual cramps, just to name a few. There are even wellness clinics that focus on stress relief and beautification through things like massages, facials and hydrotherapy.

Wellness clinics offer a way for patients to get the most out of their treatment. They provide additional means to help the patient feel better and look better. Take for example, the cancer wellness clinic whose services include a massage therapist to deal with issues such as touch aversion and swelling after a mastectomy, and a wig designer to enhance outer beauty. These facilities offer unique ways to deal with unique health situations.

The Health Board is dedicated to providing accurate and trustworthy information. We carefully select reputable sources and employ a rigorous fact-checking process to maintain the highest standards. To learn more about our commitment to accuracy, read our editorial process.

There are many types of wellness centers and they can be just as effective as regular hospitals in treatment of disease if not better, given the fact that they give you good consultation time. Furthermore, do not wait to get sick for you to go to a wellness center, you can start before a major illness that requires a major operation that needs high tech equipment.

The idea of a wellness center is to create and improve disease awareness and develop health habits that prevent disease. A wellness center's aim is to keep you out of that surgical room or emergency room

@Mor - I think most of them are more relaxed because they usually aren't dealing with serious medical problems, or under-staffing or any other issues like that.

In my experience wellness clinics tend to mostly focus on things like rehabilitation and weight loss rather than serious conditions. I do like the idea that the body can heal itself if it is given a lot of support and natural healing techniques.

But, if I have a serious condition, I want the most modern, advanced technology and specialists available and I don't think they'll be working in a wellness clinic.

@irontoenail - I actually quite like the idea of wellness clinics. Particularly the ones that focus on a discipline, like the Village Wellness clinics focus on yoga.

I've never found them to be particularly intrusive when it comes to trying to sell products. They are generally quite proud of their own services, but it's good to be made aware of what's available to you. And it's kind of comforting to know that there are so many medical professionals all under one roof, just in case you need a consult with someone.

As another plus, I find the staff to be much more relaxed than the staff at a medical center. It's just a much better vibe.

Bear in mind that some of these wellness centers will have an ulterior motive. I mean, it's difficult to find a medical health professional these days who doesn't, but wellness centers can be very commercially motivated.

Often they have their own brand of products that will be hawked by everyone on the premises. They can be wonderful places to go, but just remember that you don't have to buy everything they put in front of you.
