Each consultation offers more time, more attention, and a broader approach to restoration of complete health – one that takes into account the person’s diet, environmental factors including lifestyle, toxicity and sensitivity, and their coping mechanisms towards the various factors. It also brings attention to the person’s emotional states and mental function and their physical and bodily structure. The interventions are designed to treat the illness as well as the whole person, addressing the physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual factors that influence health and disease. Dr Boecklin has also a special interest in treating Children’s and Young Adults combining homeopathic treatment with very gentle acupuncture and acupressure for the treatment of chronic painful conditions as well as recurrent upper respiratory conditions, digestive complaints, chronic headaches and behavioral issues.
