What is Holism?

Holism is the belief that the parts of something are intimately interconnected and explicable only by reference to the whole.

 

Our individual parts cannot exist independently of the whole, nor can they be understood without reference to the whole. A person's true whole self is ultimately regarded as greater than the sum of our parts.  

 

Holistic massage treats the person as a whole by tending to all the individual parts. Importantly this includes mental and social factors.

Is an Holistic massage right for me?

Because of the nature of holism, yes! Holistic massage can be right for every body.

Before we start the treatment we talk about you.

What do you want to get out of your treatment?

What are your health goals or concerns?

What - if anything - is keeping you up at night?

How do you nourish yourself?

 

Your treatment is then tailored to your answers and to your body's response during the treatment.

This means that every treatment is different and made just for you. You can read more about what to expect when you get a holistic massage treatment from me here.
