FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS - FAQ
What is holistic therapy?
Holistic therapy, or complementary therapy as it is also known, is about treating a person as a whole. It is thought by balancing the body and treating the mind, the body will work in harmony and help it heal itself. Relief may be found from illness and pain, and ailments caused by stress may be reduced. Holistic therapy works alongside conventional medicines and treatments and should not replace them. You should always contact your GP with any health concerns.
What is the general holistic overview?
The general holistic overview is that we have 5 bodies: the spiritual, the energetic, the mental, the emotional and the physical body. They operate as one interconnected system. These bodies differ in a vibration level, and most people can only see the physical body. A well trained, gifted and intuitive person recognises and sees all bodies.
Any holistic work you do can have an affect in all your bodies. All bodies are equally important. Often working from the Spiritual body down, supports all other bodies.
Doctors look after the physical body, psychotherapist, counsellors look after the emotional body, psychiatrists look after the mental body, energy workers, holistic therapists look after the energetic body and shamans look after the spiritual body.
What affects one body affects the other bodies, and being aware of how this happens will help you a great deal in achieving balance. The flow of energy needs to run through your 5 bodies freely.
How do we best care for this complex and intricate holistic system of 5 bodies we have?
Holistic health approaches will help you to do just that. You are probably already doing many things to help. The fact that you are reading this website means that you are taking steps in being responsible for your own health and not always waiting for something to go wrong and then expecting your doctor to "fix" you. This is not to say that you should not see a doctor when you are unwell. They provide a vital service to heal your physical body and trying to do completely without a doctor can be a terrible mistake.
It is important that the person looking after you recognises that you have different bodies and that you will need help from different people along the path.
If we look at long standing pain for example: Holistically we would look at the root cause of that pain not just the symptoms. For example we would ask: Is my pain coming from my childhood wounds? Is there a part of my emotional body that is in pain and I am feeling that pain in my physical body?
When you are ready to ask yourself those questions you are ready to look at the pain with a completely different point of view. We call it an holistic view because you are no longer just looking at the physical body, you are now seeing yourself as a person with a spiritual body, an energetic body, a mental body, an emotional body and a physical body.
How do I know if holistic therapy is right for me?
