Integrative Doctors in Australia and New Zealand
In Australia and New Zealand there is a wonderful organisation of medical professionals who practice integrative medicine. It's known as AIMA (Australasian Integrative Medicine Association)
Integrative medicine is a philosophy of healthcare with a focus on individual patient care and combining the best of conventional western medicine and evidence- based complementary medicine and therapies within current mainstream medical practice.
Integrative medicine reaffirms the importance of the relationship between the practitioner and patient, focuses on the whole person, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapeutic approaches, health care professionals and disciplines to achieve optimal health and healing.
It takes into account the physical, psychological, social and spiritual wellbeing of the person with the aim of using the most appropriate, safe and evidence-based treatments available.

Epsom Salt Bath
After strenous exercise or at any time when the muscles are crying out there is nothing better than an Epsom Salt Bath. Great just before bed to ensure a great sleep.
