Supporting your health and wellness goals from a holistic perspective
We, humans, are a multi-dimensional bunch- a whole greater than the sum of our parts- 28 of those parts listed below.
Web MD1, “Holistic medicine is a form of healing that considers the whole person — body, mind, spirit, and emotions — in the quest for optimal health and wellness. According to the holistic medicine philosophy, one can achieve optimal health — the primary goal of holistic medicine practice — by gaining proper balance in life.
Holistic medicine practitioners believe that the whole person is made up of interdependent parts and if one part is not working properly, all the other parts will be affected. In this way, if people have imbalances (physical, emotional, or spiritual) in their lives, it can negatively affect their overall health.”
We fellow holistic therapists subscribe to this approach, ensuring a well-balanced life.
