Thailand’s medical & wellness industry offers a vast range of treatments including Anti Aging or Holistic medicine, which attempts to heal by engaging body, mind, and spirit to pursue the goal of maximum health.
Holistic medicine is comprised of many different kinds of therapies aiming to not only treat illnesses after they have arisen, but also to care for the person as a complete being, focusing on sickness prevention and health promotion.
As a way of maintaining well-being, holistic medicine endeavors to accomplish what we’ve always been told to do – “take care of our health” – so we can live longer. There is now an effective approach to anti-aging or longevity treatments, which attempt to slow down aging and allow people to grow old healthily with a high quality of life in their later years.
In Thailand and in especially in Bangkok in particular, many facilities offering anti-aging treatments are using holistic methods, which have led to a gradual integration of the two types of care, and a wide array of “holistic/anti-aging” treatments and clinics. These centres perform thorough check-ups of an individual’s body, including complete bio-resonance body scans, blood analyses, and ECGs (electrocardiograms) to enable them to design a treatment program that is suited to their needs.
Programs include liver detoxifications, intravenous vitamin and antioxidant infusions, plus treatments like chelation therapy (removes heavy metals from the blood), oxygen therapy (assists in keeping the immune system healthy and active), and hormone replacement therapies (HRT).
Aesthetic treatments are also popular in holistic/anti-aging programs, such as laser skin resurfacing, Botox injections, and dermal fillers to reduce wrinkles and improve skin tone; non-surgical face-lift procedures; and cellulite elimination and various weight loss regimes.
