Holistic medicine is a form of healing that considers the whole person — body, mind, spirit, and emotions in the quest for optimal health and wellness. According to the holistic medicine philosophy, one can achieve optimal health, the primary goal of holistic medicine practice by gaining proper balance in life. Here are 10 points on Holistic healing:


  1. Holistic comes from the word “whole” and considers the whole person, not just the condition or symptom that is being presented.
  2. Holistic Healing Therapy is an art and science of healing that addresses the whole person – body, mind and spirit
  3. Holistic Healing Therapy aims at balancing the energy system and healing the person not the body. It searches for the root cause of the symptoms and recognises that the physical illnesses are symptoms of energy imbalance. Symptoms are regarded as the body’s expression of imbalances and attempt to return to homeostasis.
  4. Holistic Healing Therapy recognises that healing comes from within and therefore sees the client as an active participant in their healing process.
  5. Holistic Healing Therapy evaluates many aspects of the persons life such as family situation, work environment, social relationships, mental conditions, attitudes and emotions, thinking patterns, cultural traditions and relationships with self and others.
  6. Holistic therapists do not aim to diagnose and give a label of a named “disease” and then treat it. They start with an assessment of energy imbalances in the body by examining the energy flow, posture, energy level, pain level, stress level, aura, chakras, flexibility, pulses, etc. Then they use energy balancingtechniques such as massage, nutritional balance, emotional stress release, awareness in thinking patterns and limiting beliefs, life-style changes (such as better nutrition, exercise, relaxation, reconnection with family, friends, nature and self).
  7. Holistic therapists aim to establish what kind a person has adis-ease and aims to balance the person (rather than establish what kind of named “disease” a person has and treat this named “disease”).
  8. Holistic therapists recognise that illness, pain and dying process are all being leaning opportunities for the client and the therapist. They recognise the healing power of love, hope, believe, humour and enthusiasm. They recognise that unconditional love is the most powerful medicine and strive to adopt an attitude of unconditional love for their clients, themselves and all that is.
  9. Holistic therapists recognise that every person is unique and different. They don’t offer a “cure” based on individual stories of success or personal experiences. They don’t advise their clients to stop their medications or treatment and start a “better” therapy. They support their clients in their own healing journey and recognise that the client has the responsibility to choose their treatment.
  10.  Holistic Health is defined as unlimited and unimpeded free flow of life force energy through body, mind and spirit.
