The Holistic Healing Center
Multiple Practioners & Therapies Under One Roof
Lisa Wong, L.Ac., Dipl.Ac,. began her acupuncture practice in Ventura California
in January, 2000. After seeing patients with needs for more than acupuncture,
she soon found that there was no established base of other alternative
healthcare practitioners to refer her patients to. Knowing that many of her
acupuncture patients would benefit from other types of holistic care, her
objective became to organize multiple practitioners under one roof.
The Holistic Healing Center was founded by Lisa Wong in February 2003
to teach the benefits of alternative medicine and to provide patients with
convenient access to a broad spectrum of therapies and healthcare
practitioners. Patients are given information on each practitioners skill
and an explanation of all services available. The option of alternative
medicine is clearly presented, and the choice becomes an educated one
made by the patient.
The Holistic Healing Center offers patients the most appropriate and expedient
care for their condition. All therapies are optional, and all suggestions are
gently made. The convenience and familiarity of having varied treatments
and care-givers in one place, creates a comfort level for patients and lends
itself to an easy atmosphere at the HHC. Close proximity also encourages
immediate communication and sharing of information between practitioners
for the betterment of the patient. Lisa hopes her patients will "understand the
body in a different way so that cause and effect is more obvious and the
patients will then know what to do for their own health."
Because of the relationship established between the community and the
practitioners, the HHC has relied mostly on "word of mouth" advertising.
The positive feedback from clients and patients has been very generous.
The HHC also utilizes its Classroom, a studio and teaching facility that was created to give classes and lectures to the public and spread awareness about the alternatives of Holistic Health and Healing. It is also a place to practice these things holding exercise, Yoga and other group classes regularly.
