What is Holistic Wellness & Health?

Holism or Holistic stands, in short, for holism. Body, mind and soul, as well as emotions and the entire environment, are addressed in equal measure to ensure all-round well-being. In other words, the focus is not merely on individual symptoms, but on the whole person.

How does holistic wellness help body, mind and spirit?

Whether you have specific pain or simply feel unwell, Holism gets to the bottom of your symptoms through an interplay of multiple therapies and lifestyle changes. 

These are the areas covered by the holistic trend:

  • Body: physical and chronic pain, illness, tension, fatigue and disease.
  • Emotions: negative feelings (anger, sadness, worry, etc.)
  • Mind: limiting beliefs that manifest themselves in harmful ways (in depression, anxiety, stress)
  • Soul: inner imbalance (feelings of emptiness, incompleteness, lostness, etc.)

Holistic Pulsing, Acupuncture & Co.: What treatments and therapies are available?

Typical Holistic Wellness therapies and treatments include:

  • Nutritional counseling and Clean & Healthy Eating

  • Therapy with essential oils
  • Hormone therapy
  • Affirmations
  • Breathing exercises and meditations
  • Acupuncture and Holistic Pulsing
