English term or phrase: a container and a vessel
the lecturer talks about how a healing instituion works and how the people are admitted. So, she says, "it provides a container and a vessel for one patient to come in and have her or his practicioners all under the same roof." And then she adds, "So this way the practitioners are holding the vessel for the patient; the patient isn't having to go to all these disparate places and try to remember, what did my massage therapist suggest? what did my nutritionist suggest? what did the doctor tell me to do? We're able to really hold that in a very holistic sense of the word..."

Portuguese translation:uma solução completa
Explanation:
Penso que a expressão está sendo usada figurativamente no sentido de "uma solução completa". Eu traduziria "vessel" apenas como "solução".

"Vessel" seria o lugar físico (o hospital, a clínica, etc) enquanto que "container" seriam os equipamentos e os recursos humanos.
