Defining Principles

COCHASA's members support and encourage an holistic approach to health care, which includes promoting wellness - the integration of body, mind and spirit - with an understanding that everything you do, think, feel and believe has an impact on your state of health.

In line with this philosophy COCHASA'S members facilitate health and wellness by subscribing to a non-therapeutic approach to health care. The practitioners do not diagnose, treat nor advise their clients on matters of disease, defect or deficiency. Instead, non-therapeutic health practitioners work with optimising the client's innate capacity for health. This approach supports the World Health Organisation's definition of health:

Health is not just the absence of disease, but is a state of complete social, emotional and physical well-being.

There is also a strong emphasis on individuals and communities being encouraged to take responsibility for and have control over their own health, as well as on encouraging preventative health care.

Critical to complementary health philosophy is an understanding of the role that energy plays in health. With many articles and books being published on quantum physics, energy and its role in health, the language of energy in health care is gaining wide public awareness and acceptance. Many international studies reveal that complementary approaches or practices achieve more by doing less, making these cost effective and non-invasive disciplines some of the fastest growing approaches to health care in the world today.
