Metabiolic Age Management Treatments For Tourists & Community
HICOM Clinic reaches out to tourists in Japan, Korea and United States with 7 day, 30 day and 60 day residential treatment programs. Tourists stay at the Naniloa Resort and are treated in the clinic.
Patients become younger through changes to diet and nutrition, exercise programs and the key is using acupuncture to reduce the impulses or addictive behaviors that make it so difficult to make these life changes. The result is lowering their metabolic age that includes well known indicators such as the BMI.
Natural medicine and Oriental medicine in particular are quickly expanding to become mainstream offerings in the United States. This means the demand for Acupuncturists in many communities is creating exciting opportunities for you.
