What is holistic therapy?
A fundamental principle of Homeopathy, Reiki, Reflexology and of all the healing arts is that there is no such thing as a disease purely of the mind or of the body. Mind and body is one person. Influence one and you influence the other. Stress one and you stress the other.
To effectively treat a symptom belonging to a single part, we must consider the whole to which the part belongs. Then we heal in the truest sense, and also develop in the process.
Holistic medicine is characterized by the treatment of the whole person, taking into account mental, emotional and social factors, rather than just the symptoms of the disease. Each person, every body, has a healing potential and a capacity for change. It's the role of the therapist to activate that potential so that the person can heal themselves.
Following this approach and understanding how and when to use different therapies along with meditation, relaxation and discussion is what I do at The Restoration Room. And I love it!
Health & Wellbeing Discussions
Over the past couple of years clients have said how useful they've found the talking part of our sessions because it provides a time to check-in and discuss physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing in one session. For this reason I now offer the opportunity to book this as dedicated time as and when it's needed most.
The sessions draw on a number of eastern and western philosophies as well as natural healthcare. They are for two-way discussion and holistic feedback from me in a way that's designed to complement any overall treatment or goals you may have.
They work well before physical treatments that include deep relaxation, but are just as useful on their own. They can be used to better understand and develop health and potential, effect long term changes in limiting beliefs & behaviours, complement a spiritual practice, or to support you in times of stress or change.
