Our Holistic Approach

Treatment Philosophy

Akeso firmly believes that the path to vibrant health is unique to each client. Although each client is treated individually, an integrative and holistic approach to complete body wellness is always at the core of our approach. Holistic health and holistic medicine cover a wide variety of areas and takes many different factors into account. Functional medicine addresses the whole person, not solely the symptoms. We firmly believe that only by approaching all aspects of an individual’s lifestyle, health and spiritual trajectories can maximum wellness be achieved for each individual. The philosophy is rooted in a holistic framework with a holistic approach but not without regard to proven and specific targeted therapies best suited for the presented conditions. Treatments are oriented toward symbiotic relationships, not only with respect to various body functions, but in terms of the core, complete mind and body restoration. Our primary goal is to offer the highest quality integrative medicine in Los Angeles.

Patient Communication

Colette’s philosophy is reliant on successful communication with her clients. The best diagnostic tool is the voice of the patient. When taking a holistic health approach and practicing holistic medicine, communication is key. The combination of functional medicine and holistic medicine opens the gateway for in depth communication, which can help you get to the bottom of what’s really going on rather than trying to cover it up. Attentive and patiently approached dialogue is the first path to result-oriented treatment. Akeso’s functional medicine in Los Angeles practices a blend of modalities, including: acupuncture, herbal medicine, herbal remedies, natural remedies, massage, bodywork, and nutritional counseling. All of these modalities have led to incredible satisfaction for those under her care. With a sensible, broad and holistic approach to the individual, we ultimately empower each patient in their quest to achieve optimum health, energy, enthusiasm, and motivation.

The Practice

We practice holistic functional medicine in Los Angeles with women and men of all ages and backgrounds. Are you new to holistic functional medicine in Los Angeles and unsure of exactly what to expect? Treatments are designed to be passageways with recurring treatments fine-tuning the health choice directives. Evaluation, clinical ministrations, natural remedies, herbal remedies, practiced remedial lifestyle and nutritional choices lead to overall improved health benefits tailored to an individual’s routines and life experiences. Modified behaviors and awareness may prevent injuries for those who engage in intense sports and other rigorous activities. Other clients suffering from chronic health problems, such as autoimmune disorders or recalcitrant pain, are often able to reassert control over health management issues previously thought to be ungovernable. Holistic health is a powerful way to help get you on a path of healing and overall well-being. Akeso’s integrative medicine in Los Angeles works above and beyond to design something specifically for you.
