Holistic Therapy abides by these same principles. It’s not just about analyzing the emotional
state or changing thoughts and behaviors. It’s about all the ways in which people interact with
their world and their overall sense of being. Clients are guided toward self-awareness and
then allowed to lead their own journey through self-discovery and healing.
Holistic treatment is a response to what some people see as a more reactionary approach to health – the tendency to treat symptoms only, instead of finding and treating the root cause. Many people who have felt like traditional medicine has failed them have turned to holistic medicine in hopes that their practitioners will understand the complex nature of their illness, dig deeper into the source of the issue, and focus their treatment on the whole person, not just the obvious symptoms.
