Our Philosophy

Upāya is a multidisciplinary wellbeing clinic that offers modern and holistic mind-body therapies to help create greater purpose, happiness and wellbeing.  Our philosophy focusses on improving and expanding life’s experience with individual (complementary) therapies and services for body, mind and soul.

Our services are not limited by paradigms of health and offer science based, holistic and spiritual services that aim to empower and support greater health and wellbeing. Services include consultations, mind-body therapies, online programs/courses, events, trainings, workshops and retreats.

With its services Upāya answers to a growing interest for personal wellbeing where the need for happiness and purpose is rising as mental and emotional health has been recognised as a great global pressure.

This active pursuit of activities, choices and lifestyles leads to a need for greater holistic health. Our philosophy is to serve individual growth and understanding by acknowledging diversity.

Upāya does not believe in offering fixed solutions or methods and is inclusive towards different approaches based on each person’s individual uniqueness.

As wellbeing clinic Upāya offers complementary and/or science based holistic services that do not replace nor ignore conventional medicine treatments. Our services are to enhance and support health and wellbeing and therefore do not claim to heal nor question medically diagnosed conditions and treatments.
