So what exactly is Holistic Therapy, anyway?

"Holistic therapy is a generic term for any treatment or therapy session that is intended to treat the individual
as a whole on all levels - mind, body and spirit."

Holistic therapies work on the principal 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. We often refer to it as the "immune system".

When the balance of the immune system is disturbed we see the various symptoms of disease. Holistic therapies aim to help the patient restore the balance, thus allowing the body to heal itself naturally.

Do work and family commitments leave you little or no time to unwind?

Remember that it is estimated that 75% of all illness is due to the effects which stress and tension have on the body! Holistic Treatments are one of the best methods to promote and restore balance within the body by easing tension and the effects of stress.
