[ Latin Orbis balance ]

Who we are

Orbis Lifecare has in-depth experience in helping people and workplaces create wellness and balance. This is key to productivity, health and happiness for both the individual and company.

Orbis has developed a total health concept which is holistic and is tailored to the unique needs of either an organisation or an individual. This concept focuses on balance in all areas of life. The root of this is establishing inner balance as the foundation for outer balance and success.

Our organisation aims to provide the advantages of both western medicine and eastern natural medicine for the benefit of our clients.

Our vision is to help people and workplaces take charge of their lives through simple, effective programmes which have stood the test of time and scientific scrutiny.

The Orbis’s team of experts include experienced doctors of medicine, sports and life coaches, renowned sports people, teachers and other specialist advisors as required, for example alcohol and drug treatment specialists, clinical psychology and psychiatry.
