What does Holistic mean?

Holistic is an adjective that describes things related to the idea that the whole is more than the sum of its parts. In other words, that the entirety of something must be considered instead of just considering its parts.

The holistic approach and principles have been around since the time of Hippocrates 2500 years ago and have traditions associated with Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine.

Ayurveda and Holism is about the ways and means of restoring and promoting wellness while balancing internal and external environments. One is considered healthy when body, mind and spirit are in a state of equilibrium.  Ayurveda empowers every individual to know their strengths, limitations and proneness to disease and to carry out continuous self assessment. 

As a Holistic therapist all my treatments start with a general health and lifestyle consultation to assess the most effective plan of treatment as this will be different for everyone depending on their concerns, general health, stress levels, and lifestyle.  I will provide home care advice designed to help you achieve your treatment goals which might include lifestyle suggestions such as exercise, diet or just making more time for yourself!


  1. Today there are more than 100 medical conditions that can be helped with holistic medicine, including migraines, chronic fatigue syndrome, and even cancer. Making a career in this field definitely seem to be very promising as the demand of holistic medicine doctors are even expected to grow more in the next few years.
