All of our events are centred around holistic health and wellbeing, its been my passion for as long as I can remember but it has just occurred to me that not everyone knows what it means!
I thought I would write a little blog explaining what it is and tell you a bit more about it.
Holistic health has been around for years despite many people calling it new age its actually anything but with some alternative practices being around for a long, long time although it is only more recently become more mainstream and accepted in the medical field.
Holistic medicine, or “holistic health”, is a belief that both the physical and mental aspects of life are closely connected and factor into the overall health and wellness of the individual. It also looks at the emotional and spiritual side of the patient as well as the physical.
If one part is off balance then it can negatively effect the person as a whole.
Holistic medicine is also based on the belief that unconditional love and support is the most powerful healer and a person is ultimately responsible for his or her own health and well-being. Other principles of holistic medicine include the following:
All people have innate healing powers.
The patient is a person, not a disease.
Healing takes a team approach involving the patient and doctor, and addresses all aspects of a person's life using a variety of health care practices.
Treatment involves fixing the cause of the condition, not just alleviating the symptoms.
At our events you will find a whole host of holistic therapists offering mini taster sessions including Reiki, Reflexology, Access Bars and lots, lots more. Its a great way to try new things before committing to a full appointment.
Over the years I have tried so many holistic therapies and am fascinated about how the body manifests emotional issues in the physical body and how we can heal ourselves, its truly amazing and I want to encourage people to give something new a try!
I hope that helps to de-mystify the meaning of holistic health and hope to see you at Be Well and Beautiful soon!
Bye for now
