What is holistic medicine?
Holistic medicine is a whole-person approach to wellness that addresses the mind, body, and spirit of an individual.
As we often say at PALM, you are more than the sum of your parts. Instead of focusing exclusively on a single aspect of a person’s well-being, a holistic approach encourages wellness in all areas of health: mental, physical, and spiritual.
In addition, holistic medicine recognizes that these areas are interdependent and seeks to restore healing and balance between them.
A holistic medicine approach may incorporate preventive services, treatments, and wellness therapies such as:
- fitness classes, cryotherapy sessions, and nutrition consults for physical health
- biofeedback and well-being coaching for mental health
- meditation classes, massages, and salt room sessions for spiritual health
At PALM Health, we recognize that each individual is a unique being with a distinct physiology and a singular set of thoughts, emotions, and feelings.
Taking this into account, our providers — personal trainers, dietitians, chefs, massage therapists, estheticians, well-being coaches, counselors, physicians, nurses, and class instructors — personalize their services to your goals and preferences in order to help you reach sustainable well-being in mind, body, and spirit.
Why take this approach?
We have found that an integrative and holistic approach to wellness that considers the whole person — mind, body, and spirit — is the most effective. Our clinic features multispecialty physicians who combine the best of conventional medicine, lifestyle medicine, and wellness therapies to help you achieve your health goals.
Our specialists in functional medicine use an advanced diagnostic approach to uncover the root cause of illness, based on the understanding that lifestyle, environmental, and genetic factors influence long-term well-being.
Using a concierge medicine model that allows us to offer more personalized care, our medical care team offers proactive, highly personalized preventive care and treatment for both physical and mental health.

“The staff and facilities are simply fantastic, the spa is truly amazing, and the place has such a welcoming atmosphere.

“Finally, an approach to wellness that embraces and cares for the whole person, in a beautiful environment with a dedicated and compassionate staff. Thank you, PALM!”
“There are no words to convey the love and appreciation I have for this healing place. We drive four hours to be seen by the doctors and it is totally worth it! My daughter has a chronic health condition that has not been triggered since we started our PALM protocol. Life-changing for her!”
“Every time I visit PALM — for a workout, a class, or just lunch with my friends — I leave feeling so happy! It is so refreshing! Thanks to the encouraging staff and a relaxed atmosphere, I am feeling half my age!”
