What is holistic health & wellness about?

In a time when we’re so busy, and there’s so much pressure on us, it’s more critical than ever to calm our mind, increase our self-awareness, and prioritize our wellbeing.

These days you probably hear a lot about mental health, that, of course, affect both men and women. However, men may be less likely to talk about their feelings and seek help. Recognizing the five signs below is the first step towards getting treatment and living a better life:

1. An extreme change in personality

2. Uncharacteristic anxiety, anger, or moodiness

3. Social withdrawal and isolation

4. Lack of self-care or risky behaviors

5. A sense of hopelessness or feeling overwhelmed

If you recognize any of these warning signs or see these behaviors in the people in your life, please contact us or a trusted certified psychotherapist. We can match you with guides who can help by personalizing a treatment based on evidence-based holistic health & wellness approaches.

Why are we aiming to provide people with easy access to holistic health and wellness professionals?

Experts in holistic approach declare that consciousness is not housed in a specific part of the person, but is instead an integration of mind, body, heart, and spirit. Practitioners of holistic techniques believe that viewing each person as a whole being is an essential first step in providing care. Experts in holistic health collaborate with people in therapy to help them gain awareness of the connections between their emotions, thoughts, physical experiences, and spiritual understanding.

The mind-body connection

The practice of synchronizing breath and movement leads to awareness of one’s internal state. Thus, this translates into an ability to listen. Also, it allows awareness to respond to the messages the body sends to the mind.

Integrative practitioners can help individuals realize that these components work together in harmony to support daily activities. This more in-depth understanding of the whole self can often lead to greater self-awareness, self-esteem, and self-acceptance.

Although some people with mental health concerns recover using alternative methods alone, often people combine alternative approaches with more traditional treatments such as psychotherapy, and perhaps medication. In the medical field, the use of alternative health care practices such as acupuncture, stress reduction, and mind/body interventions have been documented to be useful in the treatment of physical and psychological problems such as hypertension, chronic pain, and anxiety.
