Holistic Health is actually an approach to life. Rather than focusing on illness or specific
parts of the body, this ancient approach to health considers the whole person and how he or she
interacts with his or her environment. It emphasizes the connection of mind, body, and spirit.
The goal is to achieve maximum well-being, where everything is functioning the very best that
is possible. With Holistic Health people accept responsibility for their own level of well-being,
and everyday choices are used to take charge of ones own health.

This holistic health centre in pune was started by Medical Mission Sisters in 1977 for
training and healing with alternative systems of medicine, and our hospitals, and other
involvements too gradually incorporated holistic health facilities as part of their treatment. As a
