The placebo effect is a positive health outcome resulting from a person’s anticipation that a particular technique or therapy will help.
There are different ways that a placebo effect may support your health and wellness goals…
  1. The health care provider interacts with the patient in a manner that brings about this type of positive response.
  2. The patient’s belief system allows for, and supports, an expectation and manifestation of a successful outcome.
