Holistic therapy believes that an imbalance in one part of the self can affect another. It has grown since the pandemic in 2020.
Hippocrates is actually credited with the beginning of holistic therapy believing that our bodies have the abilities to help heal ourselves.
You can find many studies of holistic therapy that have shown improvements in people’s lives. In 2015, Dr. Bessel van der Kolk also wrote a book called “The Body Keeps Score.” His book discussed how trauma affects both the mind and body.
If you suffer from anxiety, depression, stress or trauma you are a good candidate for holistic therapy. You may be experiencing symptoms of phantom pains, appetite and digestive issues or poor sleep.
You can meet with a holistic therapist to discuss options to see what would work best for you. Typical therapies include:
Breathwork – you can regulate your nervous system through breathing.
Meditation and Yoga – helps you to live in the moment and manage stress, improve mental clarity and increase self-awareness.
Reiki – you work with a practitioner to achieve a state of healing through a transition with your physical, mental and energetic body. This originated in Japan.
Sound Healing – you create vibrations using singing bowls that can change your brainwaves for improved health.
