Holistic Healers are natural health practitioners who use a range of healing modalities, techniques, therapies or remedies in an integrated way to address the needs of the patient or client.

The whole person, including physical, mental, emotional and spiritual is considered in the treatment program, and all methods used are gentle, safe and support natural healing principles.

The Holistic Healer encourages the patient/client to take responsibility for their health and wellbeing and complements this with information, resources and educational material.

What is a Holistic Healer?

Holistic Healer: practitioner who utilises modalities that treat the whole person – the physical body, mind, heart (emotions) and spirit – to support an individual to return to a state of equilibrium in their health and wellbeing.

Holistic Counsellor: A practitioner who is trained in holistic counselling and combines modalities that support an understanding of the whole person to facilitate greater insights and awareness of the self.
