The lotus flower is a symbol of purity, beauty, and potential in many cultures around the world. Its flower bud is kept safe in a small pod located at the bottom of ponds in the muddy ground. When it begins to grow, the bud extends via a stem and pushes itself towards the surface of the pond, in the direction of sunlight, until it reaches the surface of the clean, clear waters and finally blooms into beauty. We decided to name our clinic after the lotus flower, as it represents the journey of an individual from illness to health. We start out surrounded by illness, the murky, muddy waters, but with perseverence, faith, and hope we fight our way to the surface where we can bloom - when we feel healthy we can finally realize our true potential in life. We would love to help you achieve your purpose in life with greater health and happiness!
