The word holistic means “whole”. Conventional medicine tends to focus on the symptom or the part of the body that has the problem whilst the holistic approach takes into account the whole person. Holistic therapists believe that the body has a vital life force. When this becomes out of balance – disease takes a hold. The aim of holistic therapy is to restore the balance of this vital life force and help the body heal itself naturally.
Holistic therapies do not just have physical benefits – they help the mental, emotional and the spiritual well being of a person. Holistic treatments are also deeply relaxing.
