Holistic Health Program
Health can be measured in many ways and is often broken down. All into a variety of numbers and diagnoses that don’t often provide the best picture of what a truly healthy body and mind looks like.
The focus of holistic healing is to encourage the person to strive for wholeness and healthy living. With the goal being to gain proper balance in all aspects of life.
What is Holistic Health?
Holistic health is an approach to life that considers multidimensional aspects of wellness. It encourages individuals to recognize the whole person. Physical, mental, emotional, social, intellectual, and spiritual. The individual is an active participant in their health decisions and healing processes. Including wellness-oriented lifestyle choices.
Courtney’s health and wellness coaching style focuses on holistic medicine and finding balance while living with sensitivity. Since sensitivity is closely interconnected within the nervous systems and brain functioning, it is not something to “get rid of”. Her empathic style emphasizes non judgement and acceptance. Learning how sensitivity’s silent effects can impact mental, emotional, spiritual health and wellness.
Focus on Natural Healing
Holistic health is about caring for the whole person. Providing for your physical, mental, spiritual, and social needs. It’s rooted in the understanding that all these aspects affect your overall health and being unwell in one aspect affects you in others. Take stress as a example.
Movement, dancing, singing, or chanting, sound and vibration, drumming, prayer, meditation, mindfulness, and touch are examples of activities that are included in holistic approaches. Holistic approaches include but are not limited to acupuncture, acupressure, biofeedback, massage therapy, chiropractic physicians, manual therapy, naturalistic physicians, meditation, guided imagery, yoga, therapeutic touch, reiki, and other energy therapies.
Benefits of Holistic Healing
Holistic healing aims to identify the root cause, or causes, of an imbalance (whether it is physical pain, stress, poor sleep, etc.). As a result, a patient feels completely considered and cared for, a benefit missing from many modern medicine practices.
Instead of solely seeking to resolve symptoms, practitioners will ask the patient to both discuss and consider how not only their physical body relates to this imbalance. But also, how their psycho social, spiritual, and mental states contribute.
And to help the body shift towards a healthier balance, a practitioner may guide the patient in processes such as emotional recognition and release, dietary modification, spiritual connection, and more. Not only will the patient be making improvements towards their original imbalance, but also in many realms of their life.
