What are you and your team proud of at your practice?
Mr. Okada’s wellness program was developed during the 1930’s up until the time of his death in 1955. It has been continued by thousands of followers in Japan and other countries throughout Asia, South America, Europe, Hawaii, and around the globe since that time. He created systems of care, including the notion of the Ryôin, (or “Wellness Center’), which is an institution supervised by medical professionals, offering inpatient and outpatient care. The treatments at the Ryôin centers include the Purifying Therapy, access to organic Nature-Farmed foods, horticulture therapy and garden activities, and art activities.
