This lady is a reflexologist and has now been treating me regularly for over ten years. Why, you may ask. I'll tell you! Because my sinuses were in a terrible mess!

I wish I had Taken my Reflexologist More Seriously

The Holistic Approach to Health

Simply put holistic means whole, that is mind, body and spirit together. Complementary therapists like reflexologists look at the whole person, their lifestyle, their work and home life, medical background etc. and approach treatment holistically.

The reasoning behind this is simple in that we would all agree that if we are physically unwell, then often our mental performance will suffer. Likewise if we are under a lot of mental stress, then we are likely to feel physically low.

The holistic approach is one in which treatment is given to the whole (mind, body and spirit) rather than just to the symptoms of the problem. In this way the holistic therapist is looking towards treating the root causes of the condition, at the same time as trying to ease the symptoms. This holistic approach is at the heart of all complementary therapies and as the word complementary suggests, these therapies are intended to complement, not replace conventional medicine. If for example, you are taking prescribed medication no responsible complementary therapist would suggest that you should stop doing so. The treatment is complemetary not alternative.
