Center of Holistic Alternative Treatments

A clever Ruse

Magic is generally frowned upon throughout the entirety of Dysvoll, and so magic use of any kind is hidden away. This is done in Neklian, where magic is used way more freely and is an accepted part of the community.  
Pah, those Neklians can be a bit silly from time to time.   Especially with their whole deal with healing rocks and nice smelling fumes to cure the entirety of the world's diseases, that is pure hogwash!

Hidden in plain sight

In Neklian, magic is a very normal part of everyday life, and to conceal the use of magic in the city, many things are named in a misleading manner. This includes the Center of Holistic Alternative Treatments.   In reality, the center does not practice alternative treatment in the way this phrase is normally meant. They're not a bunch of scammers charging money for the simple placement of normal rocks on the body, or some sort of so-called calming smoke.  

Keeps the Sceptics away

The primary function of the name is that it deters many people who might've wanted to visit the hospital. This way, only residents of the city, who know it's magic and not a humbug, come to seek treatment there.
  Furthermore, people who go in because it's alternative treatment will get treated with crystals that are actually charged with magic, which will help them.   They will, therefore, be none the wiser that it wasn't simply the natural rock doing its thing and that it was in fact magic.
I went to neklian's Center of Alternative Treatments last year, and I must tell you, those healing rocks are effective!   My joints feel so much better. I'm not sure if they used citrine or what it was, but it definitely did the job.

Treatment for the untreatable

The special thing about the center is that they are able to provide treatments that have no traditional medicinal equivalent, or only an equivalent that gives less than stellar results.   An example of this is the Light Magic version of Light Therapy, which is used to treat Tenelithropy. This disease is highly feared and incurable, but light therapy can ease the ailment significantly.

I like when things are hidden in plane sight. And I like as well the confusion generated.
