The Santo Domingo Wellness Center health facility consists of six integrated services:
- Cardiovascular health
Focuses on diagnosing, rehabilitation, and prevention of cardiovascular diseases.
- Brain awakening
It is based on neurofeedback therapy.
According to Psychology Today, neurofeedback, also known as EEG (electroencephalogram) biofeedback, “is a therapeutic intervention that provides immediate feedback from a computer-based program that assesses a client’s brainwave activity. The program then uses sound or visual signals to reorganize or retrain these brain signals. By responding to this process, clients learn to regulate and improve their brain function and to alleviate symptoms of various neurological and mental health disorders.”
“We have special equipment used to treat important diseases such as Alzheimer’s, attention deficit, insomnia, anxiety, depression, among others,” noted Dr. Atallah.
- Menopause and andropause
Dr. Atallah detailed that they offer hormonal treatment services for both men and women and considered that menopause and andropause are treatable.
“I trust this great team of doctors, psychologists, and nutritionist to handle people with that kind of need,” he added and noted that when menopause or andropause comes in, a person usually gets that wear and tear feeling, but emphasized in the fact that it does not have to be your reality if addressed on time.
The treatment offers a bioidentical hormonal replacement, Monalisa Touch, and GainsWage therapy.
Monalisa Touch® is a procedure for women’s vaginal health. It addresses these problems without hormones or surgery.

“Nutritional genomics, also known as nutrigenomics, is a science studying the relationship between the human genome, nutrition, and health. People in the field work toward developing an understanding of how the whole body responds to food via systems biology, as well as single gene/single food compound relationships.”
