  • Complementary medicine (e.g., traditional Chinese medicine, naturopathy, nutritional advisory),
  • Holistic health support (e.g., health coaching, life coaching, etc.), and

The services offered by Holistiq are not intended for individuals suffering from acute illnesses and emergencies. Holistiq reserves the right to refuse the provision of services without stating reasons.

3. Our Forms of Service Delivery: Holistiq offers its services as follows:

  • Single consultation sessions or treatments; and
  • Health plans or annual memberships, which include a fixed series of coaching sessions and additional services as shown online and agreed upon with the relevant specialist after the initial consultation session.

The duration, costs, and specific scope of our services are determined by the individual offer from Holistiq (as indicated on the website or agreed upon with the relevant specialist). Sessions typically last between 30-90 minutes (subject to variations).

Furthermore, depending on the health plan, Holistiq’s services may also include the delivery of dietary supplements and the conducting or arranging of laboratory tests (in collaboration with selected laboratory partners).

4. Locations of Service Delivery: Our services are generally provided either online or offline at our health center at Lessingstrasse 15, 8002 Zurich, depending on the type of service and the needs of each individual patient. The determination of the location of service delivery is at the discretion of the specialist, taking into account the patient’s preferences. However, telemedicine doctors are only available online. The onsite consultations are just for Complementary Medicine and some Holistic Health Support.

5. Our Specialists: Our services are provided by qualified and trained specialists, such as complementary therapists, functional medicine doctors, nutritionists, midwives, life and health coaches, employed and selected by Holistiq (the “Specialists”). Laboratory testing services are provided by selected and qualified laboratories.
