Holistic therapies: centred around you
Considering the person as a whole, as a harmonious blend of mind and body, emotions and spirit is what holistic treatments are all about, and is also why holistic therapies are considered complementary. Instead of merely suppressing symptoms without discovering why they exist, holistic therapies attempt to remedy the root causes of disharmony or dysfunction which lead to discomfort.
That the holistic approach considers individuals as a whole is reflected in its name which comes from the Greek word for everything: “olos”. The name also highlights the ancient origins of holistic therapies, though it is only in recent years that these treatments have been attracting more interest and attention.
The difference between holistic and traditional treatments is that while traditional medicine considers problems solved once symptoms have been treated, the holistic approach seeks to identify the cause of disorders or symptoms within a person’s emotions. This is why holistic therapies are particularly suitable for the treating anyone who is suffering from the stresses and strains of everyday life.
Among the best known natural and holistic treatments are shiatsu, reflexology, Reiki, Tuina, flower essence therapy and Scenar treatments. Each one, though with different approaches, seeks to help us reach a new level of psychophysical equilibrium so we can face life feeling more relaxed and with the energy we need to cope with the stresses life generates.
