How Does Holistic Therapy Work?

Apr 4, 2018 | QA, Treatment

Holistic therapy has become more prominent in the recent years. In the past, therapy of any sort may have been viewed as something for the “weaker” members of society. After administering holistic therapy and having proof that it has helped so many people, the perception has drastically changed about what it does. More than 38 percent of adults use some form of alternative medicine to either treat or try to prevent ailments from occuring.

Holistic therapy works differently than Western medicine. Instead of looking at the person in their entirety like holistic therapy does, western medicine views the body as functioning separately from the rest of our mental and spiritual components. The truth-of-the-matter is that when we go through anything, we are affected bodily, mentally, and spiritually. If there is stress at work, fear will creep in (mental) that causes the employee to sweat and have high blood pressure (physical) that blocks them from being connected to themselves (spiritual).

The state of emotionality that one experiences can positively or negatively affect the body, or vice versa which creates disproportion to their spiritual aspects. By using holistic therapy, a person can grow emotionally which can help them get through future problems more effectively, improve physically by using natural ingredients to which the body responds to with energy and vigor, and help to correlate to one’s self in a more uplifting way.

The most common holistic therapies are yoga, mindfulness, aromatherapy, acupuncture, homeopathy, and naturopathy. The use of these holistic practices is to find different methods to treat issues in a more organic way by having some core beliefs.


  • The whole person should be looked at in mind, body, and spirit, and not through just disease and the symptoms.



  • If the body is experiencing illness, then the body, the mind, and the spirit are out of balance.



  • When given the opportunity with copacetic conditions, the body can heal itself and maintain in healthy capacity.



  • Start with easy techniques before moving onto the more rigid ones.



  • Patience with healing and balance must be honored.



  • The natural path works more efficiently than one of an artificial kind.


By using these holistic therapy values, it can give someone the confidence to take charge in their own health. Holistic therapy promotes a more positive outlook on how someone should respect their body, mind and soul to keep themselves in total alignment.
