What does Holistic mean?
Holistic Therapies have been around for thousands of years and were used in ancient cultures for their therapeutic effects.
Holistic means care for the whole person, mind, body and spirit.
MIND – Our mind is our brain,the part of us that thinks, that is logical,the part that works things out through thought.
BODY – Our body is our physical shell.
SPIRIT – Spirit is the part that makes us who we are, the part that expresses our uniqueness and the origination of our feelings.
Holistic therapists believe that the body has a vital force or life energy. It is this force that protects the body from disease and allows it to heal also known as the immune system.
When the balance of the immune system is disturbed we the see the various symptoms of dis-ease.
Holistic therapies aim to help the patient restore the balance, thus allowing the body to heal itself naturally.
