“Novah” is an anagram of the Vietnamese phrase “Vô Hạn” which means “Without Limits.”
At Novah Healthcare our mission is to help you live without being limited by your pain.
Science tells us that our bodies, our minds and our surroundings are strongly linked so they all affect our pain. To have long lasting control of your pain, you need to change the way you’ve done things because those habits are probably adding to your pain.
But change is scary because it requires you to invest your time and energy (and possibly money) and there’s no guarantee that things will be better.
You may think “at least the pain is predictable!”
Resilience – the best approach to chronic pain treatment.
Change is easiest when you feel safe and supported. At Novah Healthcare, we provide a non-judgmental, safe and supportive space for you. We also help you to re-evaluate your physical and social environment to make sure that you have access to resources that give you validation, safety, support and predictability.
Once you have a reliable anchor of security, then we help you to heal old scars and explore different ways of moving, thinking, feeling and interacting with others so you can control your pain and improve your quality of life.
Our five unique core values reflect our own personal and professional experiences with adversity.
1. No egos and no silos
Since each person is unique, we must be flexible with our approach to your care and we must collaborate with others to get a fuller perspective of you. We strive to leave our egos outside of the clinic because they cause rigid thinking which results in your care being compromised.
2. True empathy
We strive to see things from your perspective, unclouded by our own perceptions, even if we’ve been through similar challenges.
We do as we say and say as we do. We hold ourselves and others accountable to this.
Chronic pain is not simple, so there is no such thing as a simple cure for it. We need to address your vulnerabilities and resilience factors appropriately in order to improve your chronic condition as well as your overall wellness. Whether you need therapy, advocacy or coaching, we will strive to provide you with it.
5. Failure IS an option
The idea that you can succeed at anything in life as long as you work hard enough and have the right attitude is simply not true. It is always ok to fail as long as you’ve asked yourself the questions: 1) did I do everything I was able to do? and 2) what did I learn from this failure?
