The basic mission of Santé: Auroville Institute for Integral Health is to offer a more effective health care system to the population of Auroville. To accomplish this task, the team at Santé began adapting the currently emerging healthcare model of integrative medicine to fit the context and reality of Auroville.
Integrative medicine is based on the collaboration of multiple health disciplines working together to provide more comprehensive patient healthcare, by combining the various diagnostic and treatment strengths of diverse systems, thus effectively addressing areas where individual healthcare systems are limited or fall short. This model of integral health focuses on providing affordable, minimally invasive, effective healthcare through the prevention and treatment of ill-health using a far-reaching knowledge base.
At Santé, our team includes allopathic general practitioners specialized in Urology, Emergency medicine and Paediatrics. Our newest team member is a retired general practitioner from the United Kingdom, who is also skilled in basic ophthalmology.
Santé also has therapists for Acupuncture, Classical Homoeopathy, Indian Ayurveda, Midwifery and women's health, Medical & Therapeutic Shiatsu, Meridian Psychotherapy, Medical Massage, Physiotherapy, Integrative Psychotherapy, Hypnosis, and Neuro-linguistic Programming.
And we cannot fail to mention our invaluable support staff of nurses, receptionists, admin support and maintenance staff, without whom this service could not manifest.
