Two staff of the Holy Trinity Spa, Sogakope, a subsidiary of the Holy Trinity Medical Centre, have left Accra for Chandigarh, India, for further studies in sleep medicine and multi behaviour therapies.
They are Dr. Maxwell Onassis Fiadjoe, resident medical doctor and Ms. Erica Blankson, nursing officer in charge of the Spa.
Speaking during their departure at the Kotoka International Airport, (KIA) Dr. Felix Anyah, the Executive Chairman of the Holy Trinity Group of companies, said that the regular training of personnel at the Spa was to keep abreast of new technologies and management of lifestyle-induced, non-communicable ailments such as sleep disorders, stress management, addiction management and obesity management.
The Spa has adopted the holistic health service method in treating people with lifestyle-induced ailment.
The holistic service, which is a new model, uses all the three areas of medical practice which include orthodox, complementary and alternative medicine in treating lifestyle-induced ailment.
It also addresses the individual as a whole; his physical body, emotions, social, spiritual, psychological and mental needs.
Dr Anyah said health was a state of physical, emotional, mental, psychological, social and spiritual well being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity as indicated by WHO.
He said the curative medical practice with drug and injections was not only narrow and costly, but that several lifestyle-induced ailments such as addiction, obesity, sleeping disorders, high cholesterol, gout and peptic ulcer could not be effectively managed by drugs alone.
