Holistic health care is an integrated approach to healthcare that treats the “whole” person, not simply symptoms and disease. Mind and body are integrated and inseparable. Our holistic health care practitioners do more than just identify and treat a specific ailment. They are trained to look at the various aspects of your lifestyle and health issues, and design a course of treatment to help you reach your optimum level of wellness. Holistic health is not only concerned with the absence of disease, but with a positive state of being. We combine the wisdom, traditions and disciplines of Eastern healing arts with the advances of modern Western ways to achieve this ideal.
Our philosophy is that each person has a responsibility for his/her own health and must be an active participant in his/her own healing. Clients and students are encouraged to be responsible for the daily care of their health through diet, exercise, lifestyle and attitudes about what constitutes wellness. We support our patients every step of the way, helping them to make appropriate choices and take responsibility for their well being.
Core Principles of our Holistic Health Philosophy
A fundamental principle of holistic medicine is the knowledge that health is not just the absence of disease, but a dynamic state of balance in a living energy system. This core principle that individuals are in a constant and dynamic relationship to health and to illness, while always striving for the balance that reflects good health, is the basis from which Holistic practitioners assess and treat. A holistic approach demonstrates this principle.
The holistic approach emphasizes the interaction between an individual and his/her environment to discover what factors promote or prevent health and well-being. Harmony in these interactions reflects a state of wellness, while disharmony and imbalance results in disease. There are several major sources of imbalance, as demonstrated in the eastern mind body philosophy.
By understanding the causes of disharmony and making changes and adjustments in the energy system, harmony, balance and good health can be restored. True healing focuses not just on the treatment of symptoms, but on the underlying root causes of imbalance and disease.
