Holistic Medicine



My name is Spyros Maganiotis, I was born and raised in Athens. I have been working in the health field since 2009. My personal interest led me to the field of therapies in 2005, when I started my personal search and this resulted in directing my professional orientation and studies in the field of health with emphasis on mental health and Chinese medicine.


I currently work privately as a psychotherapist practicing synthetic and somatic psychotherapy in both individual sessions and in parent counseling groups as well as in self- paced seminars.


In addition I also work as a Chinese medicine practitioner with a focus on mental health, internal pathology, gynecology and fertility. I have broad knowledge of a wide range of therapeutic techniques from both scientific and classical / traditional approaches ( see appendix 1 for a detailed curriculum tree ), striving to integrate and synthesize the necessary tools for individualized treatment.


My therapeutic philosophy is that the human being is composed of body, spirit and soul , so always in sessions, I try to have a critical look at all three levels, paying special attention to individual differences, the psychology of the person and the observation of the vital energy of the body.


My special interest is the integration of modern research on biopsychology – neuroscience and their research on biopsychology – neuroscience and their combination with classical psychotherapy, especially somatic psychotherapy theory and Chinese medicine.


In 2012 I founded the Healthcure wellness and holistic therapies centre in Nea Erythraia in Athens and after four years I decided to move out of Athens, as the city could no longer support me in the lifestyle I had chosen .


I relocated to the island of Paros, opening Healthcure Paros in 2016. In its 5 years of operation, the center offered a variety of services of holistic therapies, psychotherapy, exercise, Chinese medicine and massage. It even exclusively equipped spa services for four tourist seasons in luxury hotels, villas, boats in various parts of the island.


In 2021 having  become a parent for the second time and influenced by the needs of the family for a different lifestyle I moved to the city of Larissa where I now live and work maintaining a private office.


In my personal life I continue my studies on my professional field, I attend seminars of philosophy, I practice Qi-gong , Wing Chun Kung Fu, I do meditation practices, I study, I take care of my diet and my relationships.
