Holistics Practitioners

Holistic medicine is a system of healthcare that focuses on education and responsibility for personal efforts to achieve balance and well being. The techniques tend to be less invasive and have fewer side effects than traditional medicine.

Emphasizing the need to look at the whole person, holistic medicine includes analysis of physical, nutritional, environmental, emotional, social, spiritual and lifestyle values. It encompasses all forms of diagnosis and treatment, including drugs and surgery if no safe alternative exists. Which means don't abandon traditional medicine. If you break a leg you are probably better off at a hospital emergency room than seeking out an aroma therapist!

What kinds of things do holistic health professionals do? Everything from acupuncture to massage and bodywork, to nutrition and spiritual counselling.
