Message from the director
In modern stressful life, we can easily have physical, mental or emotional ‘dis-ease’. Our association practices and enlightens mental health care from the point of Integrative Medicine that use not only conventional but also unconventional medicine known as Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM). CAM can include treatments such as aromatherapy, herbal medicine, nutritional therapy, a variety of mind-body therapies. Integrative Medicine for mental health care can heal the individual with body-mind-spirit harmony through realizing the state of self as the unique and whole person.
Co-operating locally and globally with specialists, we at IMMH continuously make efforts to investigate the provision of effective mental health care in order to promote healthy and comfortable lives.
